If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen me post a picture of my Colourpop Cosmetics package which I finally received after a couple of weeks of anticipation waiting for it to arrive. 

If you don't follow me on Instagram then why not follow, you can find me here 

I cannot express how happy I was when this came because if you know anything about Colourpop then you would know they don't actually ship to the UK (what is up with that?!?) which makes it a littttttle bit difficult when it comes to getting your beauty fix! 

I had a number of people ask me how I was able to get this shipped here so I decided to put this quick post together to let you guys in. So, after a little research I discovered a number of websites/companies in America which actually ship these products to you. 

The way it works is you sign up to a shipping site in which provides you with an american address. When you place your order on a website you enter this address as your delivery address and in effect it delivers the item to you allocated locker. 

Once they have received it they take a picture of your items and upload it to your account so you can check everything is there (this is what happened with the one I chose, I'm not 100% if this is the case with all of them) once this is done you are then able to select your delivery option and make payment. 

You may of course also get custom charges when it reaches the UK BUT it is a great way of shopping American brands which don't ordinarily ship here. 

What is also a huge bonus is you can order many items from different brands and get them shipped to your locker in which they are held for 60 days, you can then select to ship them all together and just pay the one charge. For me, this is great news but for my bank balance, not so much! 

The website I used after researching is one called 'godsend' which i've linked here. It's very straight forward to register and sign up with different options for different needs (I have the basic account) and so far from my first use I think it's such a great idea. Because it is based in Delaware you don't get charged tax so you literally only pay for the shipping to the UK and the custom charges. 

The Colourpop items I selected I am in love with! The colours are great and so pigmented. 

I picked up this Super Shock Cheek highlighter in shade 'wisp' which is one of there most loved products. It's a lovely colour and the photo doesn't do it justice, and the product itself, oh em gee it feels like a sponge when you touch it! 
Buy it here 

I also picked up this Super Shock Eyeshadow in the shade 'bill' which is a muted plum beige in matte.
Buy it here 

The main reason I wanted to shop at Colourpop was for the Ultra Matte Lip  lipsticks because I had heard so many great things about them. And lets face it finding a really good matte lip is difficult it either dries or cracks and in general isn't very long lasting. 

Well let me tell you something, so far so good with these ones, I literally don't have any complaints since I started using them and the colours are everything! 

The shades I got (top to bottom) Beeper, Trap, Lumiere 2, Bad Habit

They're a range of nudes with the pink thrown in as a curveball as it's not something I would usually go for. And to be honest I didn't think it would be as pink I guess it can be a little deceiving when looking online. But for $6 a piece its worth trying them out, and I actually really like it! 

Buy the Ultra Matte Lips here 

I also picked up a Lippie Pencil  in the shade 'dopey' and a Lippie Stix in the shade 'pillow talk'.

Buy the pencil here and the stix here

So soft to apply it feels like butter on the lips, and the colours again are so pretty.   

You can shop Colourpop here  they're such an incredible brand and so affordable. I am so happy with the products I got this time and I can't wait to put in another order! 
Feeding my beauty obsession one shipment at a time! 

I would definitely recommend checking out more of their products and if you have any questions about how easy it was to order etc then just let me know!
