Swatches & First Impressions: Colourpop Holiday Sets

Happy Sunday, everyone! Yesterday I got a pretty sweet delivery, the new Colourpop Holiday Sets that I ordered! I’m really looking forward to playing with these some more, but I thought I’d give my first impressions and some swatches for you to see!

I bought the eyeshadow and gel liner sets. I love the packaging of these! They were packed so securely in a large box, but the sets themselves came with a pretty large mirror on the inside of each lid. Each product fit securely in the box so nothing rolled around or could break. Packaging is one of many things that Colourpop does very well. Although their products are very inexpensive, the packaging is well-designed, sturdy, and sleek.

Overall, I’m very impressed with this collection! The eyeshadows are all so beautiful, wonderfully pigmented, and super creamy. The gel liners are also really creamy and pigmented and have insane staying power. After these swatches, I had to scrub like crazy to fully remove them!

The colors in this collection remind me so much of the holiday season. They aren’t your stereotypical colors like bright red or holly green, but they are so glittery and festive that I couldn’t help but get in the Christmas spirit when I was swatching them! These colors will be perfect for holiday parties, New Year’s Eve parties… basically any event this season!

Did you buy any of the Colourpop holiday sets? What was your favorite? Let me know in the comments! ❀

Side note: I feel like I should apologize for the lighting in the swatch pictures! My new apartment doesn’t have as much natural light as my previous place did, so I’m trying to work out the kinks until I can get a real lighting setup. πŸ™‚
