Colourpop Summer Collection: Swatches + Mini Review

IMG_2862

Colourpop is quickly becoming one of my go-to makeup brands. If you are not familiar with Colourpop, they are an online only makeup brand based out of Los Angeles that JUST had their first birthday.  They are one of the fastest up and comers due to the uniqueness and quality of their products.  Their eye shadows, lippie stix, and lip pencils are $5 a piece and all blushes, bronzers, and highlighters and $8 apiece (aka dang affordable). I recently went a little crazy and hauled some things from their summer collection, as well as a few new permanent releases.  I have tried most of them and I love them.  Here are some of the goodies I got.

Lorac Pro Contour Palette: Review + Swatches

IMG_2803

Are you tired of me reviewing contour palettes yet?  Too bad here is another.  Lorac is about to Launch their Lorac Pro Contour Palette.  I was fortunate to get my hands on one before the official release. This palette has three contour shades, three highlight shades, and a synthetic contour brush.  The packaging is very sleek, slim and similar to the Lorac Pro Eyeshadow Palettes.    This is a very similar set up to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, the Kat Vond D Shade of light Palette, and The Nyx Highlight and Contour Pro Kit (which I recently reviewed).

Wet N Wild Fergie Matte Lip Color: Review + Swatches

IMG_0508

I was in the drugstore getting something I needed like milk or shampoo when I ran into new Wet N Wild products. I like Wet N Wild they are cheap and, for the most part, pretty decent products. I saw the new Wet N Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Colors and I was pretty excited. Matte Lips are so in and it appeared that they had some very beautiful colors. I picked up four of these guys.

Milani Rose Powder Blush: Review + Swatches

IMG_0625

Hellooo my beautiful blushing ladies
Milani not only came out with new Matte Lipsticks (check out my review here), but they also re-released three shades of the previously limited addition Rose Powder Blushes into the permanent collection. Romantic Rose, Tea Rose, and Coral Cove have been released into permanent glory. I purchased all three because I have a makeup hoarding problem… They come in the standard gold Milani packaging with a transparent top. Through the transparent lid you can see that the blushes have been sculpted into the shape of beautiful rose. How cool is that (I’m a sucker for gimmicks).

Naked On the Run: Review + Swatches

IMG_0542IMG_0555

One of the many makeup items on my Christmas wish list was the Naked On the Run Palette. My wonderful husband, who does not understand why makeup is so costly, made the big splurge and wrapped up this little ditty for a pleasant Christmas surprise. His reasoning for purchasing the Naked on the Run Palette over my other makeup desires was because “it seemed like the most bang for my buck”. This is exactly why I wanted this palette. It has everything you need. Mascara, eyeliner, lip gloss, six eye shadows, a blush, and a bronzer are snug as a bug inside the tortoise packaging. Continue reading

Review + Swatches: Rainforest After Dark Palette

I was just browsing around Ulta one day when I came across the Tarte Rainforest after Dark palette. The palette instantly grabbed my attention. First off the plumy, gold, and deep mocha packaging is beautiful. Yes there is a snake on the packaging, but it is a very chic snake that’s gold with a freakin purple jewel on his head. So this very chic snake lured me over and convinced me I needed to take a gander of what was inside and when I popped it what I saw on the inside was even more beautiful then what was on the outside.
