ColourPop Land (ColourPop X Candy Land Collection)

No comments :


I don't think I've ever been more excited about a ColourPop release than this one! Candyland was a huge part of my childhood, and if you know me, I have a thing for nostalgia. I truly love that they stuck with the artwork that I grew up with in the Candy Land game (it's been redone so many times since and has never been as cool) and the fact that it's so colorful!! I couldn't help myself and just bought the entire PR set with the ColourPopLand game included.

Everything came in a beautifully packaged presentation - the box has sprinkles all over it and opens up to reveal the entire collection, along with the game pieces and cards.

The tray that holds everything lifts up, revealing the game board underneath. It unfolds into the full size "ColourPop Land" game. The pastels just make this so pretty, and if you look closely you will see little ColourPop makeups all throughout the game board! The first thing I'll dive into is the Princess Lolly Roller Gloss:

Again, nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia! This reminds me so much of the Lip Smackers glosses that I loved as a kid. It is lollipop scented and smells DELICIOUS! Almost like a raspberry-strawberry scent.

The fact that it has a metal rollerball instead of plastic is awesome to me, because these kind always work so much better and apply the product more evenly.

The product itself is smooth, not sticky, and decently moisturizing as far as glosses go. It definitely gets a thumbs up from me, and I kind of already want a backup lol!

Next we have the Sweet Escape Glowing Lip Balm set, featuring the Mr. Mint character:

I am pretty sure these were not available individually, just as the set of 3. They have a minty vanilla scent to them and are all lightly tinted.

The outer packaging is this gorgeous gold chrome with candy canes all over it.

Mr. Mint is a pale peach.

Let's Chill is a bright pink.

Peppermint Frost is a pale pink.

Here they are swatched - as you can see they're very sheer and give just the slightest hint of tint. These are super moisturizing and smooth and feel great on the lips!!

The packaging is reminiscent of the old Coty airspun powders, in a giant cardboard container with a big powder puff!

It has a shaker inside to make it less messy, and helps you dispense little bits at a time. You definitely don't need much with this, so you're getting a lot of bang for your buck!

The color is a sparkly champagne. You could definitely go in with a brush and use it on your face, but this gives a beautiful shimmer to your collarbones, shoulders - basically anywhere you want to GLOW!

It is scented in "cupcake frosting" but almost smells like vanilla baby powder to me. It smells great but is definitely strongly fragranced, so you may not like it if you're sensitive to scented products.

This includes a watermelon, papaya and coconut face milk. These all smell amazing. These are basically light moisturizers that you can use any time of the day whenever you need a little moisture boost!

Then we have the Super Shock Blushes:

When I first saw them, they all looked very similar in the package. But upon closer inspection, they definitely have different tones to them. And let me tell you, these smell AMAZING!! They are gumdrop scented and have such a fruity, yummy scent to them that I could almost eat them haha!

The marbling throughout them gives these a tiny hint of shimmer, but nothing too crazy.
Gumdrop Pass is a pink base with swirls of  purple and shimmering pale pink.
Gummy More is a peach with swirls of coral and shimmering gold.
Jolly is a pale peach with swirls of pink and shimmering champagne.

Last but not least we have the star of the collection, the Candy Castle Shadow Palette!

This has 10 shades, which I'm not sure I've seen them do before but I could be wrong. It's got a slim design, cardboard packaging, and a good sized mirror inside.

The colors are fun! Several pastels, but enough darker shades in there to really make it a one and done palette. If this was entirely pastel, I'm not sure I would like it as much. But it's got a nice color story to make it something I will definitely reach for often!

Candy Land is a matte pastel pink with silver micro sparkles.
Sugar High is a metallic sheer white.
Cravings is a matte pale pastel yellow with silver micro sparkles.
King Kandy is a matte peach.
Lord Licorice is a matte pale tan.

Gramma Nutt is a matte pinky peach.
Plumpy is a metallic light purple.
Rainbow Trail is a matte pastel mint with silver micro sparkles.
Candy Crush is a matte peachy beige with silver micro sparkles.
Gloppy is a matte warm brown with gold and copper micro sparkles.

I am pretty impressed with how pigmented the pastels in this palette are. A lot of the time matte pastels like this will be crumbly and patchy, but these guys are smooth and apply great. The Cravings shade needs a little building to reach its full potential, but it's got a great texture and is easy to blend. I love that the Gloppy shade was included, because I feel like it really rounds out the palette. Every time I use this I'm going to be thinking about ice cream because it's a very ice cream-colored palette!

So there you have it, the full ColourPop Land Collection. I haven't written a blog post this long in quite a while! Hope you all enjoyed me yacking about how much I enjoy this collection!
