Colourpop Haul + GIVEAWAY

Hello, hello, I apologise for my absence last week but I went back home for the week and left my camera in Essex...well done Daena! Also, welcome to the new website. I decided to leave 'daenabe' to one side and begin a new era with 'daenalouise', which is my name so I figured I won't regret it in years to come.

Today I'm coming at you with a cheeky Colourpop Haul which I was super excited about. I have been lusting after a tonne of Colourpop items for the past year or so, after trying one of the Ultra Matte's, and I finally took the plunge and ordered some things. I'll also be giving away my favourite of the Ultra Matte Lipsticks as I ordered two! Details will be at the bottom of the post, but let's start with what I bought.


The first things I new I wanted more of was the Ultra Matte Lipstick's, and I ordered the shades Tulle and Limbo. Tulle is a dark berry toned nude...I really don't know how to describe it as it is such a unique colour, but it is the most perfect colour for this time of year. It's definitely my new favourite Autumn colour! As for Limbo its a very dark chocolatey brown, which I ordered because I have been lusting after Kylie's Lip Kit in True Brown, and this shade is pretty similar but at around £4, it's far cheaper. The formula of these is super thin but highly pigmented at the same time, and definitely not too drying on the lips. I do find that after eating they can smudge around a little, but reapplying after eating is natural anyway, right?!

I also wanted to try out one of the Ultra Satin Lipstick's, and I ordered the shade Frick N' Frack, which is my perfect dark nude shade. It is more on the pinky-brown/terracotta side of nudes rather than the more natural side, but I adore it. It's super comfortable on the lips and dries down to a satin finish *duh*. 

I'd heard so many amazing things about the Super Shock Shadows, so I picked up three! The first was Kathleen Lights, which is a beautiful bright copper shade with a pearlised finish. I also grabbed Game Face which is a slightly darker version of Kathleen lights really, with a more metallic finish. It's the perfect Autumn eye colour (I am in LOVE). I couldn't resist buying the shade Rex, which is not my usual eyeshadow colour, but since it has the same name as my beloved doggy, I had to buy it. It's a gorgeous black with multiple glitters running though it, which appear blue and purple. I think it'll be gorgeous on a night out with a pale nude lip. I absolutely adore the texture of these shadows, and upon first swatch I was extremely impressed, as not only are they super pigmented, but they have a strange crème powder formula which means that you don't get as much fall out, and the shadows are super buttery.

The final two things I picked up were the Brow Gel in Black N' Brown and the Ultra Shock Highlighter in Wisp. I have been after a dupe for my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade for a while now as it is slightly pricey, and I thought I'd give this a go. It is a little bit more creamy which may mean it's a little harsher on the brows, but I am dying to give this a go and I will report back! As for Wisp, it is gorgeous. It's intense, buttery, blends easily, and is decently pigmented. What more do you want from your highlighter?!

Below is the entry form for the giveaway, where I will be giving one of you guys an Ultra Matte Lipstick in Tulle! I ordered two so thought that rather saving it for my stash I'd let one of you guys have it, since it isn't the easiest thing to get hold of in the UK. The only essential requirement to enter the giveaway is that you follow me on Twitter, and this is to ensure I can contact you if you win. If you want extra entries you can follow me on Bloglovin' and Instagram! The winner will be chosen at random and contacted when the competition closes on Monday 10th October. Good Luck guys! UK ONLY!
