ColourPop Eyeshadow quad Kathleen Lights "where the Night is"...


Today I am back with another ColourPop review.

It is an eyeshadow quad from Kathleen lights, "where the night is..." After the matte and matte x lippie stix (already reviewed here), my favorite product from Colourpop is their eyeshadows.

Instagram seller/ ColourPop website (ColourPop don't ship to India)
Price:-$5 plus shipping/ Instagram seller charge Rs.630-800/- each approx.


Each eyeshadow comes in a single white container. The cute white pot with transparent lid had stolen my heart right away. The transparent lid with the name of "ColourPop" emboss in it look really pretty.

A little info about ColourPop eyeshadows:-

Colourpop comes up with single eyeshadow that is launched either as a set in a collection or as single. You can buy them in a set if they launched in any collection or you can buy as single too. These eyeshadows are never tested on Animals so a big thumbs up and they are made in "city of Angels" LA.

A little info about Kathleen lights "where the night is":-(from website)

"Where the night is " consist of four beautiful shades, Telepathy–(bright gold with a green undertone/ Ultra- Metallic finish), Weenie–(Pinky rose gold/ Pearlized finish), Porter–(Warm burgundy with gold multi- dimensional gold glitter on top/ Metallic finish, Midnight–(Black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top/ Metallic finish).

Application tips:-(from website)
For maximum coverage: Use fingertip and tap shadow onto eyelid. A flat, fine tip synthetic brush will work fabulously as well and is actually better for a more detailed application close to the lash line. However, your fingertips make for the most intense application. To blend: Use a fluffy brush that has good movement, dip tip of the brush into the shadow and blends with a “windshield wiper” movement throughout the crease of the eye. This will make your shadow softer and more diffused (like a total pro). When finished, close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time, you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Shadow so amazing.

My story:-
My love for ColourPop eyeshadow starts when for the first time I saw "Kathleen lights" collection "where the night is..". The collection "where the night is" has four beautiful shimmery/metallic shades that are perfect for creating night look. All the four shades stole my heart, so I decide to grab the set instead of the single piece.

My Experience:-

Coming to the drawback of these eyeshadows which I personally experienced:-


The shadows are quite creamy in texture and it feels like butter on fingers. Yet one had to use fingertips for better application of eyeshadows else you can use a wet brush to apply the eyeshadows. All the three shades telepathy, porter, midnight are metallic shades whereas weenie is pearlized finish. The eyeshadows are very pigmented. It stays more than 5 hours plus on my oily lids. It has no fallouts.

ColourPop eyeshadows are so soft in texture that it hardly can survive a fall(i know it is a very common point of every eyeshadow of a different brand). These eyeshadows are so soft that I doubt they can survive in travel or in transit.

Secondly, it is suggested by the brand to tightly close the lids after every application, the reason behind it ColourPop eyeshadows do tends to dry out if not closed tightly. The opening of the lid and closing it back is such a mess that you have to be very very careful while working with 4-5 eyeshadows at one go, I wish they come up in a refill packaging so that it would have been easy to store and carry.

But still I am quite satisfied with the quality and quantity of eyeshadows at this cheap price(which is not, if you buy from Instagram seller) so I can overlook all the drawbacks of ColourPop eyeshadows and might buy few more.

"Overall ColourPop eyeshadows are highly pigmented, cheap eyeshadows that don't burn your pocket at all and you can create your own collection from their range easily."

Here is the fotd wearing "KATHLEEN NIGHTS", "WHERE THE NIGHT IS"  on my lids and "cami" from Colourpop Matte x Range (reviewed here ) on my lips.
