I sure do have many of these! And super shocks! Crackle, Paradiso, Misty all so pretty can’t have enough Colourpop. I need to try some blush & highliters, lipsticks. Awww!

Quite a few stunners here! Mr. [Enter] Sandman, Antimatter, Paradiso, Night Dream, Karat Cake and Martian are my favorites of this latest CP pressed e/s release.

And funny enough, Try Me really is quite usable – it’s more buildable and ultimately, I found it easier to use as a result, unlike some poor performing purples that are just… sheer.
