Haul | Christmas Colourpop Haul


I'm pretty sure everyone and their mothers have heard of Colourpop Cosmetics by now and we all know it's devastating that they don't deliver to the UK yet (I'm staying positive that one day they will!). When I came across Hannahs blog post from Hannah Hearts about how she managed to get her hands on some Colourpop goodies I started to do my research and just before Christmas I had placed my first order! I'll get more into how I did it later, first onto the products.


After reading so much about Colourpop and their products I knew I would love anything, but to be on the safe side I went with a small order of just two products. First the product I've been so excited to try and that's their Lippie Stix, and after perusing the website for what seemed like hours trying to pick what shade to buy of course I had to go with KathleenLights addition, Lumiere. Described as a dusty mauve pink, this is a perfect everyday colour and with a matte finish it doesn't dry out my lips at all. Secondly I picked up one of their infamous Super Shock Shadows in the shade Stereo which I thought would be perfect for a smokey eye, described as a blackened burgundy I don't own any colour like this.


Now onto how I got my hands on these beauties. Like I said above, I read Hannahs post and she mentioned a service that helps deliver packages from sites that only ship to the US to the UK. So I did some research and came across comGateway and thought I'd give them a go. Its a really simple process, you sign up and they give you an address in America for you to use when filling out delivery details. Once it arrives at that address, they ask you to fill out the customs form and you choose which delivery service you would like, I chose the cheapest which was $26 which converts to about £17 which isn't bad for international delivery. It got shipped on the 23rd December and arrived at my house on the 30th to my surprise as I thought it would of taken much longer.

Have you tried any Colourpop products? Do you have any recommendations on what I should order next?
