Where the Light is

Hello again!

So my 22nd birthday just passed about two weeks and a half ago and one thing, I did ask for, and was super excited to receive was ColourPop's quad by YouTuber KathleenLights called "Where the Light is". After watching her video about it being released I knew it was something I had to purchase. Honestly, besides the fact that it was created by Kathleen, who is probably one of the cutest, most genuine YouTubers on the internet (In my opinion), I was sold when I saw the packaging! It's absolutely beautiful, and the fact that it's girly and rose gold just made me want it that much more.

This was the first time ever that I've purchased anything from ColourPop cosmetics and needless to say I will surely be purchasing from them again in the future. The quad consists of four (obviously)  unique colored Super Shock eye shadows. Going a little in depth individually, let's start with the highlight. The highlight color in this quad is called "Glow" which gives a stunning matte finish. Kathleen did mention in her video that this is the only shadow she has that may not suit every skin tone as a highlight. The next color is called "Cornelious" and just like "Glow", it's a matte finish. Cornelious is very much a crease color shadow but I also like to pack this color all over my lid and blend out. (Also, I've already dug through it as you can tell by the way it doesn't have the creative designs like the others.) The third color is called "Blaze". Blaze is one of my favorite shadows. I don't really know how to describe it's color except for using the word "beautiful". As you can see from the photos, it has gold flex and sparkles throughout it and has a metallic finish. Last shadow of the quad is called "KathleenLights". This is a gorgeous copper color with a pearlized finish. These are a combination of eye shadows that you could have on your eyes all at once and it would make a beautiful look.

The best part of these shadows (besides that the colors are stunning) is the consistency of them! I have never felt an eye shadow that felt like these. They have kind of like a sponge-y consistency. A bit like soft clay. My description of how it feels doesn't actually do it justice.  When you buy products from ColourPop, it comes with an information card that tells you about the product along with helpful Tips & Tricks section. This is what they write about their Super Shock Shadows. "This long-wearing creme powder has an elastic-like texture that is totally party proof. Avoid the fall out from traditional powder shadows and say goodbye to raccoon eyes! This feather soft formula glides on and feels freakin' amazing. Super Shock Shadow comes in tons of kick [butt] shades, kissed with glitter and tweaked with mutiple fabulous finishes." (ColourPop).

Not only are the colors stunning and the consistency amazing, but they're very pigmented products. I'm just so impressed with quad and the brand in general. It's one of those things that you would have to try yourself. If you want to watch Kathleen talk about these, you can watch that HERE . And if you would like to purchase it you can find that HERE . (Mini Disclaimer - I am not affiliated with ColourPop or Kathleen. I am not getting paid for this post. I just really like this product.)

I hope that you've enjoyed this post. If you've tried this brand, what's your favorite product?

Thanks for reading!

    1. You certainly won't regret it! Pigmentation is amazing and the texture... well..you'll just have to feel for yourself! :)

  2. I have just received some ColouPop items but have not gotten around to using anything yet except a lippie stix. It looks I may have to practice with the eye shadows if they have a different consistency than what I'm used to. Your post was very helpful and informative. Hopefully I get around to trying my products soon.

    1. It's different but it's still easy to blend. I enjoy them. I hope you do get to try yours out soon! Thank you for the comment :)
