First ColourPop Order

Trying out new purchases from ColourPop

Trying out new purchases from ColourPop

It’s been a really long time since I did a Beauty Blog post, but I figured I’d do a quick run down for my first ColourPop order.

Back around December/January I was seeing a lot of ads for ColourPop, and they were having a pretty nice sale – so I put out the call on my socials to see if anyone I knew had ever bought from them – and… crickets.
