A Review: ColourPop Going Coconuts Collection.

I am really excited to review an ENTIRE makeup collection today! If you’re new to these parts, I am quite a makeup junkie, but I will admit I have been sleeping on ColourPop.

I got one of their lippie balms (it’s Bellini-flavored) in a Birchbox several months ago and was impressed with how hydrating it was. Then, I was watching a Manny MUA video and he talked about how great ColourPop’s products are, but still affordable.

So, I randomly bought some of their eyebrow gel. It’s good stuff, but obviously eyebrow gel is not enough to judge an entire brand. So, when I saw yet another video from Manny MUA on this Going Coconuts Collection, I really started eyeing it.

The collection includes a 9-shade eyeshadow palette, a lip scrub, lip balm, four lip creams, two bronzers and three super shock eyeshadows. Whew! Here are my thoughts on each item.

Going Coconuts Eyeshadow Palette

Swatches from the Going Coconuts palette

This is a 9-pan palette of cool shades, with a mix of shimmers, foils and mattes. It’s a neutral palette, so it’s definitely one you can use every day, but add some of the deeper shades if you’re looking to go glam.

Using this was my first taste of ColourPop eyeshadow and the formula is really nice. There’s not a lot of fallout and it blends nicely. I’d say it’s buildable — not loads of pigment from the jump — but workable.

The colors (pictured) are Shredded, Palm Reader, Coolada, Lovely Bunch, Coco Crush, Shell Yeah, Get Crackin’, Da Coco, and Nutty.

The palette comes in a plastic compact with a full mirror on the inside, which is really nice. Each pan is also magnetic, so if you hit pan and empty one shade, you can replace it without a problem.

Overall, great palette for every day neutral looks. Great for travel since it has a hard case with a full mirror. It retails for $12 on its own (outside of the bundle).

Coco Loco Kit

This kit includes the Coco Loco Lippie Scrub and Balm. I have tried so many lip scrubs and this one has quickly become a favorite! It’s not too harsh, but nice and sugary to clear away any dryness. You can follow it up with the balm or use each alone.

The balm really blows me away. It’s flavored and clear, and has a glossy texture but is more nourishing than a gloss. This kit retails for $12 on its own.

Call Me On My Shellphone

Bronzer swatches are on top, Super Shock Shadows on the bottom

This is the Super Shock Shadow trio, and these are the things ColourPop is known for! Foil shadows that are highly pigmented and really stand out from the skin. To my surprise, they are almost creamy to the touch, but totally dry. Easily blendable. I also like that you can just toss one in your bag.

This trio includes Peekaboo (lightest shade), A Little Quirky (medium bronze) and Deep Dive (rich bronze). I have regularly been using the Peekaboo as a highlighter since this kit didn’t include one and I love it! This trio is $15 on its own.

Shell We Dance & Coconut Kiss

Every day look with the Going Coconuts collection! Wearing Shaka lip 🙂

You get four lip crayons in the collection bundle, but they are sold as duos. The Shell We Dance duo includes Island Time (pinky Nude) and Nude Beach (mahogany). The Coconut Kiss duo includes Shaka (yellow nude) and Waikiki (pink).

All of these are sheer-to-medium coverage and they are so creamy — almost glossy — and not sticky. The nudes aren’t my favorite as far as color, but I still wear them because I love the way they feel on my lips! Each lip duo is $14.

Talk to the Palm & Coconut Beach

The bronzers each come in their own plastic compact that includes a mirror. Talk to the Palm is a warm-toned bronzer, while Coconut Beach is a golden bronze shade. I have used both of these and was surprised when they both worked on my skin tone.

It really just depends on which tone you prefer — I like the Coconut Beach better, but if I had an actual tan, I would probably use the other more. Each bronzer is $8.

If you buy all of these items separately, it’s $83, but the entire collection is $71. I bought it during a Black Friday sale and got it for $43. Totally worth it!

So far, really impressed with ColourPop and will definitely be purchasing from them again.
