Colourpop Forever Freshman Collection Review and Swatches

Hey Everyone!

Colourpop released their Fall 2015 collection recently which includes two sets - Forever Freshman and Back To Cool! Initially I wanted to pick up both but the lippie stix's in Back To Cool collection didn't really grab my attention plus I already had quite a few similar shades but on the other hand the Forever Freshman collection had some really unique shades which were missing in my collection so obviously I had to get it!

Colourpop Forever Freshman collection retails for 30$ and contains 6 full size Super Shock eyeshadows of 0.07 oz each. All the shades in this collection are new to the colourpop eyeshadow line and currently are available only in this set but I am hoping colourpop will sell these individually in future as they have done in the past with some collections.

As with the fall just around the corner the shades in this collection are absolutely perfect for the season! The set comes in thick cardboard box packaging wherein the eyeshadows are securely placed within the round slots. I must say I am very impressed with the packaging as the box is quite sturdy and the round slots are exactly the size of the eyeshadow pots which helps the eyeshadows to stay in tightly! I had to apply force to remove the eyeshadows from the cardboard slots! 

The shades are absolutely gorgeous! Colourpop has done it again! As with all their eyeshadows these are no different and have excellent pigmentation! All the swatches below are done with one single swipe so you can definitely see how amazing the pigmentation is! The set contains mix of warm and cool tones. The shades in this set are -

Crimper- Soft gold with multi-dimensional gold glitter in a Metallic finish
Koosh- Icy silver taupe in an Ultra-Metallic finish
90210- Greyed out taupe softly sprinkled with pink and gold glitter in a Satin Luxe finish
Melrose- True rust in a Matte finish
As If- Mid-tone cool taupe in a Matte finish
Baby T- Deep blackened blue in Matte finish

All the shades have amazing pigmentation, the only shade which lacks a bit pigmentation is As If but its definitely buildable and even on my NC42 skin tone it does show up beautifully! The best part about colourpop eyeshadows is the staying power! I have worn these with and without primer and they stay on my eyes for 8-10 hours until I remove them with a makeup remover! And this is true with all colourpop eyeshadows not only the ones in this set. The shades stay true to their intensity even after 8 hours which is freaking awesome! If you have never tried Colourpop eyeshadows I highly suggest you give them a try! With 5$ each these are one of the best drugstore eyeshadows out in the market if not best! Highly recommended!
