Blaq Dual Sided Wipes

I have an Alex drawer full of makeup removing wipes. I mostly use them for removing swatches or lipstick. I hardly ever use them on my face because I just don’t like the way my skin feels afterward. I’ve yet to meet a wipe that has left my skin feeling clean without irritating it. That is until I tried the Blaq Dual Sided Wipes.

I know that sounds like an ad, but I assure you, these wipes are the real deal! These nifty wipes are dual sided. The smooth side can be used to cleanse your skin. It’s enriched with activated charcoal and gently removes surface level makeup and dirt. The textured side exfoliates skin for a deeper clean. Blaq claims it works like a magnet drawing out impurities and dead skin cells.

I didn’t detect a scent. That’s a huge plus for me. The cleansing side did a pretty good job at removing makeup including eye makeup. I didn’t even have to rub my eyes that much. One or two wipes and my eye makeup was gone! My eyes can be very sensitive to wipes and usually tear up during makeup removal. That wasn’t at all the case with these wipes. The exfoliating side is where the real magic happens. I gently exfoliated my skin paying more attention to my t-zone as the instructions suggested. I could see the dirt and stuff left behind on the wipe afterward. My skin? It was left feeling silky smooth!

I can’t say enough good things about these wipes. I love them! While I wouldn’t rely solely on a wipe to cleanse my skin, these do the job just the same. With the added bonus of exfoliation. And the best part is that they play nice with my super sensitive skin! I can also see these coming in handy for travel. They’re so convenient. No need to bring cleansers and exfoliators. I especially like using these the night before I plan to do a look for the blog. Come morning I get to start with a nice smooth base that is radiant and looks healthy. These are a keeper for sure!

I feel like I haven’t posted a lot of ColourPop this year. I still have my issues with them, but I caved and made several purchases. Not all of them made it to the blog though. I used to be so excited about my ColourPop orders and couldn’t wait to photograph and blog about my new goodies. I guess things change when the majority of your orders arrive damaged. Thankfully that wasn’t the case with this palette because for the first time in a long time I was excited to post about my ColourPop order.

The All I See Is Magic palette contains 15 eyeshadows.

  • Go Wish – Pastel Peach (matte)
  • Now and Zen – Pale Yellow Gold (metallic)
  • 11:11 – Rose Gold With Silver Glitter (metallic)
  • Treat Yourself – True Ivory (satin)
  • Top Notch – Terracotta Brown (matte)
  • Tinsel Town – Cranberry (matte)
  • Twinkle Toes – Black Gold (metallic)
  • Something Special – Deep Maroon With Purple Glitter (metallic)
  • Wishful Winking – Warm Brown With Teal Duochrome Flip (metallic)
  • Pitter Patter – Rosy Copper With Gold Flecks (metallic)
  • Save It For Later – Amber (metallic)
  • Big Spoon – Pastel Coral (matte)
  • T-Cup – Warm Dusty Taupe (matte)
  • Imperial – Soft Red Orange (matte)
  • Never Never – Dark Chocolate With Multi Dimensional Glitter (metallic)

The colors in this palette really called to me. Those jewel tones get me every time! I just knew it would make for the most colorful holiday look. And ColourPop didn’t disappoint! The shadows were all nicely pigmented. Those metallics glide onto my hand like butter! I found that they applied much better when you gently pat them onto your lid using a dampened brush.

I have to say that this is probably one of my favorite ColourPop palettes. Aside from the shadows being nicely pigmented, they blended beautifully. I’m also loving the shades. While a lot of these scream bold, you could just as easily create a pretty neutral look. I can especially see this making for some nice holiday looks though. You can see a look I created with the All I See Is Magic Palette below.

Overall, I’d have to say this is a must have palette for any ColourPop fan. I kind of cringe when I say that because of how dirty they’ve done me. But I do love their products. And this palette is high up on my list! Have you purchased this palette? If not, what is your favorite ColourPop palette?
