Here are my swatches of the Twilight x Colourpop Collection!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this collection in PR. I don’t think I was gonna get it, however when Colourpop started dropping hints I asked my PR contact if they would send it to me. I may have begged a little, as well. Haha, she is pretty awesome and she did send it over! <3
First off, here are some photos of the products themselves….
Here are my swatches of the entire collection. Well, I don’t have images of the “Like Diamonds” Sol Body dry shimmering oil, but I do show how that looks on the skin in a instagram reel / tik tok video I posted.

The Eyeshadow Palette
My thoughts on the collection:
I know a lot of people were unhappy about the color story, thinking that maybe this collection would be inspired by the entire Twilight Saga. However, it’s very obvious from the color story that they only focused on the FIRST Twilight film for this collection. I would not put it past Colourpop to expand on the Twilight Collection and release collections inspired by the rest of the films in the future.
- The Palette – The eyeshadow palette swatched very nicely for me. There were no patchy shades and nothing hard panned for me. My favorite shades from the palette are Edward, The Cullens, Lion & Lamb and Irresistible.
- The Super Shock Highlighters – They are both very pretty. Vampire Skin is definitely a more in your face blinding highlighter, while Meadow is a lot more sheer and subtle when swatched with a nice pink sheen to it.
- The Graphix Ink Liners – When Colourpop was dragging out the product reveals last week, the eyeliners were the best thing about the entire collection. However when I got them in my hands I was sorely disappointed with how they swatched. They are so watery and not opaque at all. I tried to build up on the swatch with the product but it was just not working out for me. I honestly suggest that when you use these maybe line your eyes with a more opaque product and go over with these graphix ink liners. I don’t know how any one will be able to do do any graphic liner looks with these liners.
- ‘Like Diamonds’ Sol Shimmering Dry Oil – The first time I’ve ever tried a shimmering dry oil. This is very pretty, maybe I’ll use it pool side this summer. However it is coconut sceneted, which I think is the scent of all of the Sol body oils. It’s too bad they couldn’t have done a LE woodsy scent for this product. Would have fit the theme of the collection a lot more than coconut.
