WOW! Thanks for putting this up, Christine…I want almost every single item! Or maybe I should say instead: thanks a lot, Christine, because there goes my $$$$!

ColourPop collections get me every time! I swear, every time I see a new one, I feel like I NEED every piece! But sadly with the CND dollar in the dumps and the cost of shipping and duty, it’s getting easier and easier to say no these days.

These are cool shades and I’m eager for reviews. But, I think could dupe it all probably with my stash that I currently have. I like this theme and I can totally relate with these shades. I graduated high school In 1994 so I sometime feel so old when I see these “throw-back” themes and I’m like “Oh Yeah..I rocked that look already,lol!” . But, I guess I should just embrace another go round!

Even “Plaid?” I don’t think I had anything like that one! But yeah….I’mmpretty sure I have dried-up dupes of Grunge (for work) and Nevermind (clubbing) somewhere.

Yeah..I see your point on plaid and I’m quite betaken by this quite a bit more now that I look at it on a PC monitor vs. a phone screen..darn it! Much of it is dupable. But, the names and having it all together is getting my attention!

Nicole, have you gone into an Urban Outfitters lately? Do you feel like you’ve been transported back to Wet Seal, circa 1996?

I graduated in 1995! I’m with you!

Haha Pteetsa! Wetseal was the jam ! It was so cheap ..little crop tops and high waisted ,knee socks for mini skirts! Yep! No, I’ve not been to UO because the one near me is actually right by a college campus. So, I haven’t shopped much there lately because the traffics is crazy.
Well, I guess we are part of the “Throwback ” era apparently ,lol! It’s all good. I guess it means we were so amazing , they decided to bring our style back!

Soooo…Colour Pop is seriously doing the most right now. I’m loving this collection! I will definitely be getting Grunge, Oh Snap, Stereo, and Plaid…maybe more. This is how you do a fall collection!

I heard “last week of August”, not sure if that is next week (the last full week) or the week after (since Monday is still August).

I saw this swatched on YouTube last night, and I want it all. lol Mixed Tape and Party Time: Those kind of lavender taupes were my thing in the 90s for eyes and lips. I’m so glad they’re coming back!

A lot of the shadows seem too similar to existing shades (I Spy/Just a Sip/Selfie/Play; Boy Band/Bandit; Central Perk/Hustle; Straight Trippin/Doe-a-Deer). Mixed Tape, Stereo and Plaid look nice though. I’d probably be interested in half the lip liners, too.

I think that most of them are still quite different from their existing collection. Check out @ColourPopCult on Instagram. They have swatch comparisons and trust me, they’re nothing alike.

So yeah, I am going to need this entire collection – but especially the super shock shadows and Contempo lippie stix. Bc I mean, come on, CONTEMPO?!?! I pretty much lived there and at Bath and Body Works in junior high πŸ™‚ I might still have a few Contempo/Blue Asphalt relics in my closet. Thanks for posting these swatches!! πŸ™‚ Mixed Tape and Plaid look heavenly!

Was Contempo still open in the 1990s? I think of 80s when I think of Contempo. I think of Wet Seal when I think of 1990s, however who wants a lipstick called Wet Seal?

I am head over heels for this collection! These are TRUE 90’s shades for real. Colors I wore back when my children were little are back, and yeah, feeling nostalgic here. Love the 90’s names too! Even if Nevermind doesn’t score , I still must have it, I’ll just wear liner underneath

I was watching a swatch video for this collection, and it got to Nevermind. My kids were immediately like, “You’ve got to get that one, mom!” I’ve taught them well. πŸ˜‰

Hahaha! Yep, my two will know immediately too! They should’ve throw in a “Smells Like Teen Spirit” , now that would have been EPIC! And where is “Courtney” or “Hole”??? A highlighter called “Pearl Jam”???

I absolutely lost it at “A highlighter called ‘Pearl Jam’???” ColourPop probably figured no one would want to wear it on their face, considering what it’s slang for. LMAO

OMG, these names and colors are bringing back some fond (and embarrassing) memories of the ’90s ! I need at least 3 of the lippies and 3 of the shadows. And this in addition to my existing buy- list for Colour Pop stuff. Oh no, I see another MASSIVE Colour Pop haul coming….

Almost everything will be miiiiiine. Just take all my money, CP! Central Perk is a necessity. #Friends4Life πŸ˜‰

I loved the 90s! To be young again. My 20yr class reunion is next month lol. Colourpop has sucked me in just with the name of the collection. wonder how many times I can use my birthday as an excuse to buy a makeup collection

I am so excited! Contempo? Dazed? Grunge? POISON? Such pretty colors! Love the blush options, too. For shadow, I’m digging the looks of Mixed Tape and Plaid. Maybe also I Spy.

Yessssss my pretties. Just don’t let the lippies be dry like Toucan was…

Christine, did any of the lippies have the finish mentioned? Are any of them in the “sheer” formula (my absolute favorite so far)?

Some of these shadows look so similar to shades already in Colourpop’s line, I’m telling myself firmly that I’ll wait for a review and some comparison swatches before placing an order. But… well dang it, Plaid, Boy Band, I Spy, Party Time, and Stereo have my name written all over them! And a couple of the lippies look so tempting… I might as well give up all pretense of being all thrifty and patient. LOL!

Love that Poison lipstick – quite a unique colour and it looks lovely on you too Christine.
The only eye shadows that I loved were Mixed tape and Plaid. Gorgeous.

Literally all the lips, the cheeks and half the eyeshadows… Damn it Colourpop! This hits such the right note for me, makes me nostalgic for the 90’s

looks very cool! Any idea when colourpop plan to roll out shipping to the UK? The website feels like it’s been stuck on ‘shipping internationally soon’ foreverrr :/

I love the looks of Grunge lippie stick and Plaid eyeshadow! I have been itching to place another ColourPop order.

oooooh I love the 90s!! I’m loving Plaid, Mix tape, Stereo, Girl Power and Grunge!!! wow Colourpop just keeps rolling out the goods! I really hope they come out with eyeliner next! (and I hope theyre amazing shades and quality!)

Not sure I feel I HAVE to have anything from this collection but do love all the swatches and appreciate them greatly ty Christine! Every single thing that Ive tried from them has been AH MAZING tho …I dont know how they do it!!Kudos to colorpop:)

Love love love! I so wish that I could get some of these but I’m in the UK and buying these off of eBay is far more expensive than it should be. I may get one or two things if I can. πŸ™‚

I really like Poison. Spy seems like it might be just different enough from my other Super Shock near-skin-tone mattes to be worth a go (sort of the orange equivalent of the pink In A Pickle … if that makes any sense). Party Time … maybe. Central Perk looks halfway between Hustle and Hunger, with maybe a touch of Bandit. Stereo and Mixed Tape are both very pretty — and interesting — but I have dupes for both from indie companies. Grunge is really interesting in that I’ll look at it once and really like it, then I’ll look again and really not, and I keep going back and forth. I was a child of the 80’s, so other than Grunge and Central Perk, I don’t recognize any of the references.

Oh boy, some of this looks good… I didn’t think I would be excited but those first few lippies look really nice (especially Grunge!). The quality of the eyeshadows seems a little unconsistent, but the colour of Straight Trippin’ is unusual (in a good way!), looking forward to seeing it in action.
Cheers from Switzerland

Christine, when will these be launched? Mixed Tape Super Shock Shadow, Party Time Super Shock Shadow, and Contempo Lippie Stix are definitely added on my keep-growing ColourPop list.. Those three are the most interesting ones for me cause I don’t have eyeshadow and lipstick in that kind of color yet, lol..

Straight Trippin’ is the only thing I can see myself getting here, a lot of it seems like I could live without OR it’s already something I have a similar colour in. But Colourpop is still doing a lot of great things with their releases, they seem to have something new constantly but there isn’t any suffering in their product formulas themselves! Love these guys.

They missed a great pun with the name of Mixed Tape, though.. Mixed Taupe ;’)

Mixed Tape Shadow, Party Time Shadow and Contempo Lippie Stix are definitely added to my ever growing ColourPop list. Those three are my favorites because I don’t think I have that kind of color for eyeshadow and lipstick in my stash yet, lol…

I will either buy everything or the things that are rated A+ because I’m a sucker for the 90s and I’m happy that are coming back in style!
