Colourpop Throws it Back: Haul + Swatches

colourpop fall

Hey beauties!

It’s Saturday, and I have some swatches for you all! Okay, so remember when I said I needed to stop shopping so much? Well, as soon as I said that everyone dropped previews of their Fall lines. I was lying to myself before I even knew I was lying to myself. However, I was better and narrowed down what I really really wanted from Colourpop’s Throwback line to 6 things. These were the 6 things that I knew I would use in tutorials or on an everyday basis.

If you’re unfamiliar with Colourpop, they are an indie company that is quickly growing in popularity on Instagram and Youtube. Their products are very affordable. Their shadows are $5 each and their lippie pencils and sticks are also $5 each. Now, their lippie sticks only come with 1 gram of product (1/3 of what is in MAC lipsticks for reference) but that’s perfect for me, because I rarely ever use up lipsticks.

Anyway, I picked up 6 items, 3 shadows and 3 lip products, from the Colourpop Throws it Back collection. This collection is inspired by the 90’s, from the names to the colors. Colourpop tends to nail trendy colors, and they did not disappoint with this line. It’s filled with cool tones, browns, reds, and dark plum shades. You can get your Craft on with these shades.

I picked up 3 shadows that I thought would be great together or separately. I settled on Mixed Tape, Central Perk, and Straight Trippin.

Anyone else a huge Friends fan? When I saw the name of one was Central Perk, I knew I needed it. It could have been dead slug slime green and I probably would’ve still gotten it. I was in luck, because this is probably one of the most beauty burgundy shades I have swatched in a bit. I haven’t gasped at a burgundy eyeshadow since I swatched Melt’s ‘Enigma” awhile back. It’s so lush.

I really want to create a messy smokey eye with these shades. I don’t think I’ve done a messy smokey eye yet on my blog or Youtube channel where I didn’t have some elaborate cat wing or something. These are all gorgeous though, and I highly recommend getting Mixed Tape and Central Perk.

I also picked up 2 lippie sticks and a lippie pencil. I got the lippie pencil and stick in “Grunge” and the lippie stick in “Poison.” Okay, Poison is awesome and I’m hoping this shade is named after the band and not the poison apple in Snow White. Well, either are pretty badass in my book. I digress. It’s a red, so yeah I had to have it.

Grunge is a mid tone cooler brown shade. I really feel like Colourpop nailed this shade. They gave people a more affordable option to relive that 90’s lip. That’s what I’ve always loved about their brand.

Curious about how Poison compares to the other reds from Colourpop? I was too! So I did a comparison post:

Poison reminds me of a mix of blood and lady.

That was everything that I got from this collection…so far. Ha! Did you all pick anything up from this collection? Let me know!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! As always, thanks for reading and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

  1. these are gorgeous shades and I LOVE Friends..that shade is amazing too! definitely think you should do a smokey eye look using these on here/your YouTube channel 🙂 I Look forward to seeing it xox

  2. So cool. I really want to pick up a few of these being a 90s kid and all butt I can’t pull these shades off. They are PERFECT for you though and I can’t wait to see some tutorials!!!! I could just die over that burgundy shadow!!!!

  3. Do I need both Lady and Grunge? They look similar only one is more red and the other is more purple? Which do you feel is the more “wearable of the two?”
