I just adore My Little Pony! ...So of course, I had to pick up some of the items from the Colourpop x My Little Pony collection! 

This lip gloss review features Dream Castle, Ponyland and Flutter Valley! 

Colourpop's Ultra Glossy Lip Colours are so glossy. So shimmery, metallic, glossy. Very long wearing on the lips. Extremely well priced. Beautiful packing, gorgeous pigmented shades and vibrant colours with high shine reflects of glitter! They are perfect!  

Colourpop Cosmetics says, "High shine gloss with full-coverage, metallic pearl finish in a moisturising and non-sticky, comfortable formula."


Ultra Glossy Lip Ponyland $6

Ponyland is a lilac slightly sprinkled with pink and gold glitter. This shade is super pretty! 


Ultra Glossy Lip Dream Castle $6

Dream Castle is a metallic fuchsia with blue, violet and gold glitter on top. This is my favourite shade. 


Ultra Glossy Lip $6

Flutter Valley is a golden undertone with tons of hot pink and gold glitter. This shade is the most sheer and the most versatile.
