Colourpop Lady Lippie Stix: Review & Swatches

Image
This time of year doesn't call out burgundy as much as fall does...but this color is breathtaking! Im talking about Colourpop Lady, retailing at only $5. 
 Standard white and holographic Colourpop packaging. Lady is a "matte" finish. Twist up, precise tip, that is so helpful especially for darker colors like this.  "Cool toned dirty burgundy"  Their descriptions are always on point. Camera didn't entirely focus on the lips, but the color is accurate. Review:

For a "matte finish", it is not shineless or dryingGives a healthy juicy look to the lips that most darker colors take awayDoesn't make lips look smallerAverage wear timeI would recommend touching up after eatingCheck in mirror to make the color is still full opacityDoesn't bleed out of my lip lines, but if you have a problem with this they do have a matching lip liner Overall: If you have been looking for a perfect burgundy, a staple year round--despite it's usual tendency to be w…

Colourpop Flux Super Shock Shadow: Review & Swatches

Image
On Instagram(@budgetmakeupbeauty) the most comments on anything Colourpop have been about "that mint shadow" and immediately I know they mean Flux! This little beauty is $5 and only found on Colourpop's website.   Matte Finish Review:

Can be worn multiple ways: lid, inner corner, blending shade for green look, etc.My favorite way is on the lid too add an awake bright lookNeeds to be built up a little, they were't kidding when they said it was a light shadeI do not detect any patchinessDoesn't fade as much as I've noticed with some other shades, maybe because of matte finish Overall: How often do you find affordable, not powdery matte mint greens? Exactly. If you've been looking for one for a while, here's your chance. Maybe you have one, but it needs to be built up? Try this on top, or as a base. Scared of the color? I admit I was a little unsure I would wear it; however, it is surprisingly wearable.


Colourpop Where the Light is X Kathleen Lights: Review & Swatches

Image
Have you heard of Kathleen(lights)? She's a gorgeous accomplished youtuber, who I'm sure most if not all of you subscribe to. Earlier on she released a lip combo with Colourpop called Lumiere. Less than two months ago she collaborated again to bring us a neutral set of shadows called: where the light is. It retails for $20 and can only be found here. The outer box is even stunning, and when the light hits it differently it glows. The set comes with four individual shadows. They can't put them in an actual quad because if not tightly closed the formula will dry out. There are two mattes, and two shimmery shades. Cornelious: "Mid-tone warm caramel" (Matte) Glow: "Creamy Vanilla" (Matte) Kathleenlights: "Bright Golden Copper" (Pearlized) Blaze: "Coco Bronze Sprinkled with Multi-Dimensional Glitter" (Metallic)

Back to Blogging & Makeup of the Day

Image
Hey everyone! I've been neglecting my blog a ton lately, and I'm sorry. A few days ago was my birthday, and I've decided since to go back to doing what I used to love...blogging. Also my huge colourpop haul came in, and I tried quite a few new goodies today. 
This time of year I rarely do a "full face" of makeup. That means no foundation, and no heavy contouring. Today I did simple bronzey eyes, highlighted cheeks, and matte lips.
 Here are all the products I used.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer (fair neutral)
