Hello my loves!
I’m so excited to be talking about this beautiful collection from ColourPop in collaboration with the beautiful Instagram Goddess & Youtuber “iluvsarahii” (or Karen, going by her real name!) I was so ecstatic when I found out that she was collabing with ColourPop because I just KNEW it would be amazing! She’s such a talented makeup artist and I’ve been following her for YEARS now, pretty much since I started up my own makeup Instagram. She truly deserves all of the success that’s coming her way and I know we will be seeing much much more from her!
As you all know, ColourPop is known for their amazingly affordable prices and kick-ass quality. This collection delivers exactly that. You can shop the collection on the ColourPop website here. They have international shipping too!
She came out with 2 Pressed Powder Shadow Quads, 3 Lip Shades in 3 different formulas (Ultra Satin, Ultra Glossy & Ultra Matte), along with 3 Lip Pencils to go with the lip shades!
Can we just take a moment to appreciate that stunning packaging and how gorgeous Karen is!? ❤

Can I just say how impressed I was with the quality and pigmentation of these shadows?! Oh myyyy.. they are honestly amazing. So pigmented and easy to work with. The really dark matte shades were so rich and buttery which is hard to get with really dark matte shadows. I really love both palettes, I think she did such an amazing job with the shade selection! The “$aucey” palette had beautiful plum shades with a pop of duochrome coral, and the “Chic-y” palette has your more neutral shades for an every day day/night look! I honestly can’t pick a favourite palette as they’re both so beautiful. They are USD$18.00 each so if you could afford it i’d totally get both! If I could only chose one I would chose it depending on your own personal preference. If you love plums, definitely get yourself the “$aucey” one, if you are more into neutrals than the “Chic-y” one is for you. Overall, I am in love with them both and am hoping they will be sold as singles one day as they shades are just so beautiful! One of my favourites is from the “Chic-y” palette which is the shade “Vivacious“, a truly stunning metallic pink champagne!
Ultra Satin, Ultra Glossy & Ultra Matte, along with matching Lip Pencils
Ultra Glossy Lip “Curvii“: A light peachy nude in a crème finish
Ultra Satin Lip “951“: A mid-tone warm nude
Ultra Matte Lip “Mamacita“: A deepened burgundy
The matching Lip Pencils are USD$5.00 each
As you can see from the swatches above, the lip liners are the thinner swatches on the right of each lippie. I love how each lip shade has it’s own matching lip liner. As you can see for the gloss “Curvii”, the matching lip pencil is a bit darker than the gloss which is nice because you can use it to define the lips a bit & to add some contrast to the gloss. I love all the lip shades as well and like how they have different finishes.
You can purchase each shade separately from the collection but if you really want everything from iluvsarahii’s collection, ColourPop is selling her entire collection as a bundle for USD$60.00 (USD$69.00 value). I think that’s an amazing price for 2 shadow quads, 3 lippies and 3 lip liners! You can shop the collection on the ColourPop website here. They have international shipping too! Woo.
Congrats again to Karen (iluvsarahii), she did such an amazing job on this collab and you DEFINITELY need to get your hands on it! So affordable and the quality is just on point. Let me know your favourites from her collab in the comments. ❤
