COLOURPOP eyeshadow palette HAUL for April

I went a little wild and purchased five palettes from ColourPop Cosmetics recently! I couldn’t resist. ColourPop already has great prices on their palettes, and there were so many lovely combinations of eyeshadow colors, I had to get several. Heres the whole haul: It always starts with just one or two, and then all of […]
