Colourpop Nail Polish and Crystal Collection

Along with the Fem Rosa collection, I decided to try out some of the other new collections Colourpop has come out with recently. I was really excited to see that Colourpop was expanding and coming out with nail polish, so of course I bought two of them to try out (Pixi-lated and First Wings First). The other collection I decided to try out was the Crystal Collection, but unfortunately most of the collection was sold out by the time I ordered everything so I only got the rose quartz lip balm.

First up is the nail polish. I used Pixi-lated (which is the blue-ish color) on my toenails, and I tried out First Wings First on my finger nails.

Pros:

  • The packaging and names are really cute!
  • They have a good range of colors for the first release from a sparkly silver to light pink to teal.
  • They are really pigmented which is something Colourpop as a whole does really well.

Cons:

  • The colors seem more spring-y than summer-y which is kind of disappointing since they released them in the summer.
  • The nail polish dries really quickly which means it starts clumping when you’re still painting the nail.
  • There doesn’t seem to be a lot of product compared to the other nail polishes I have. Especially when the price with shipping isn’t that much cheaper than (what I think are better) nail polishes.

Next we have the rose quartz lip balm from the crystal collection. I think the idea behind this collection is so neat! They have a video on their YouTube channel explaining about the different crystals used in their products and the different energies they’re supposed to represent.

Pros:

  • The idea behind the collection is so cute and interesting.
  • It looks really good over lipstick to give it another dimension.
  • It smells good!
  • It makes their matte lipstick feel more moisturizing.
  • It has a really pretty sparkly, pink-y sheen when the light hits it.

Cons:ย 

  • Most of the collection is already sold out….
  • The lip balm has enough pigment in it to look way too light on my pale skin.
  • The box it came in was really cute, but the actual tube packaging is just bland.

  1. I’ve been waiting for a Colour Pop nail polish review since they came out with it! The colors look beautiful but it’s a shame they clump easy. I’d agree with the quality packaging – I find that their packaging is cute but it falls flat. Really enjoying your blog x

  2. I really like those colors. I kind of feel like ColourPop is a little overrated though. I’ve never tried their polishes, but I bought some of their lip creams and was not impressed.

      1. The matte ones are the ones I have. The colors looked different on my lips then how they look in the tube, so I didn’t like that at all. They also left my lips feeling dry. Now their highlighters I do like. They’re creamy (instead of powder) and are well pigmented.

      2. Right. The matte ones are way too drying for me as well. The satin and blotted lips are better for me, and you’re right. It is kind of a guessing game with the color because the way it looks on the website is not the way it looks in real life. I always try to watch their swatch videos on youtube before I buy any of the lip products because those give you a better idea of what they really look like.
