FOTD: Dominique

Quick post of an FOTD, in which I had to force myself to wear a non-neutral lip and not regret it. (It worked out okay.) I was also watching a video on highlighters the night before and it made me really want to break out my BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector again, so I did.

FOTD: ColourPop Not a Box of Chocolates

I wanted to post a look using ColourPop’s Not a Box of Chocolates, which was a holiday release (sorry). I mainly wanted to show how they look and talk about how they apply. 🙂 So this is going to be a sort of short review, too. I used a matte shade, Doe-a-Deer, which they ended up making permanent and the other colors I used aren’t that hard to dupe anyway. Here’s the look: ColourPop’s Halo, Partridge, and Doe-a-Deer are the only eyeshadows I used for this look. I used the NARS Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eye Base under everything, and a primer/base really helps the colors to pop more. ColourPop actually suggests you apply these shadows with your finger, to really pack on the pigment. I find that this absolutely makes a difference in how the colors apply. Basically, I patted on Halo on the inner 2/3 of the lid. It’s a pale, non-metallic gold with a little bit of sparkle. It’s a “Satin Luxe” finish, which means that it has a bit of shine, but it’s …

5 Product Face No. 8

Nature Republic By Flower Auto Eyebrow in 02 // NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger // 3CE Cream Eyeshadow in Glamorous // ColourPop Lippie Stix in Lumière Yay! Another 5 Product Face. I had to get ready really quickly for a short get-together with my two best friends before saying farewell to Barby, who would be leaving for Chicago the day after. Here’s what I came up with:

ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadows - Not a Box of Chocolates

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows: Not a Box of Chocolates

One of the reasons I finally made my ColourPop purchase was a set from the holiday collection, Not a Box of Chocolates. I had my eye on a lot of colors in their permanent range, but I was too indecisive to make a rational decision, a.k.a. not buy all of them, so I relied on the convenience of a set. Part of me wishes I had gone with their late holiday release, Barely Blitzed, but that is just a small part. Not a Box of Chocolates features 6 limited edition shades of ColourPop's Super Shock Shadows in 4 different textures/finishes: satin luxe, metallic, pearlized, and matte. They come in this super-cute box—not unlike a box of chocolates—that feels really festive. The box looks really luxe, but it's just a really thick board and a mosaic-like sticker sheet over some foam with holes cut out for the shadows themselves. It doesn't look cheap, necessarily. I'm just saying, don't expect stained glass or anything like that. If you've heard anything at all about these eyeshadows, I'm sure …

ColourPop Lippie Stix Feminist Lumière

ColourPop Lippie Stix: Feminist & Lumière

I got two of the ColourPop Lippie Stix to try over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, namely Feminist and Lumière. I’ve been seeing this brand all over the Internet, mainly YouTube, and you know I can’t resist a hype, especially if it comes with a $5 price tag. Everything ColourPop sells is priced at $5 each, though from what I understand, they contain considerably less product than usual (e.g. the Lippie Stix have 1.5g and the MAC lipsticks have 3g).

New on my radar: ColourPop

I first learned of ColourPop from Victoria and a binge-watch of Kathleen Lights‘ videos nearly pushed me over the edge for their products. Their range is pretty modest: eyeshadows, lipsticks, and lip pencils. All at $5 each! They were met with super rave reviews, and since I saw some lip shades I wanted from their offerings, I thought I’d try out a few. I practically lunged at these babies during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday special. I restrained myself and got 2 shades of the Lippie Stix (ugh, this name!) and a limited edition collection of their Super Shock Shadows called Not a Box of Chocolates.
