So here’s the thing – I’m unemployed. Being unemployed means I can’t really afford spending money on unnecessary things. That can sometimes get quite depressing, especially if you see something you really like. You feel the disappointment growing and it makes you sad.
Last night, I was just watching YouTube videos as I usually do, when I came across some Colourpop swatch videos. I’ve only got one Colourpop lipstick at the moment, but I absolutely love it and I’ve been complimented when wearing it countless times. I haven’t bought any more because they were quite difficult to get a hold of in New Zealand (or so I found anyway).
However, after watching the videos, I felt I had to get one as a little treat for myself, so I went onto the Colourpop website to have a look at the prices and to check how easy it would be to get it shipped to Sweden. I then found that they do packs of three for $15 (USD), and I thought that was quite a bargain. So after looking around for about 10 minutes or so, googling the swatches to see what the colours looked like, I popped two packs in my shopping cart. Shipping was $9 something I believe, so all in all, I’m paying $39 for 6 liquid lipsticks. Now, that’s pretty cheap.
The two packs I bought were
Instigator: matte muted peach
Screenshot: satin deepened peach
Speed Dial: matte rich peach
Out and About:
Viper: matte true dusty rose
Times Square: matte muted pink beige
Baracuda: satin warm deepened rose
Apparently my order will take about 3-5 business days to process, and I’m not quite sure how long it would take for the parcel to reach Sweden, but it did say that it’s Express shipping, so hopefully not too long. I have a feeling that there will be one or two colours that won’t suit me.
It’s funny, you see people trying them on and they look absolutely amazing. And then you try them on yourself and they look terrible on you. Hopefully that won’t be the case though.
