Swatches: Sweet Thing, Main Squeeze, Dirty Peach, Poppin’

We’re still on Valentine’s Day stuff? Yes. Yes we are! Better late than never, eh?

I was really impressed with the Kylie Cosmetics Sweet Heart Set and couldn’t wait to try the Kiss Me Set. Was the Kiss Me Set just as nice as the Sweet Heart Set? Let’s find out!

The eyeshadow duo contains the shades Sweet Thing and Main Squeeze. It’s just as nice as the duo in the Sweet Heart Set. The shadows applied and blended beautifully. The shades really do compliment each other nicely and made for a super cute look! I can’t get over how pretty Sweet Thing is!

Poppin’ Gloss is a pretty sparkly gold. It applied nice and evenly. I didn’t like it as much as Literally Gloss, but it wasn’t sticky and made for a comfortable wear. I just felt this one was a little too sheer for my liking.

Dirty Peach Matte Liquid Lipstick is a mid-tone yellow peach. Sadly this shade isn’t doing me any favors. It kind of makes me look sickly. It also looks so much different in my hand swatch. It definitely doesn’t look that bright on my lips. However, it did apply nicely and made for a comfortable wear.

I’m kind of sad that this is the end of my Kylie Valentine’s Day goodies. But you can expect to see the products in upcoming looks because I’m really digging everything! Well, everything expect for Dirty Peach maybe? Yikes!

Swatches: Take a Break, Issues, Centerfold, Slim Fit

Ok so remember when I was all ‘Death to ColourPop?’ Well, that lasted about 2 months. Just after I decided to ban them they came out with their new pressed shadows. My friend ordered a bunch and kept telling me how I had to stop being so stubborn and place an order. I was very tempted, but I stood my ground. Then their Valentine’s Day promo photos started making their rounds on Instagram and I knew I had to swallow my pride and get myself a little something. I did and have been ordering from them since. I still have to post about the Valentine’s Day stuff I got, but for now I want to talk about some of their other pressed shadows. Like the Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette. For the record, I do still hate them. But my love for makeup is much stronger. And that’s where I’m at right now.

ColourPop Blow Me Away Palette

Blow Me Away contains 4 pressed shadows in the shades Take a Break which is a duochrome peach with a subtle gold flip, Issues which is a matte pastel peach, Centerfold which is a matte vibrant coral, and Slim Fit which is a matte hot red coral. The palette itself is a cute white cardboard box with a slim window in the front revealing the shadows. The box is covered in lots of silver stars and tucked inside a bright orange cardboard sleeve.

I’m digging the fun, Summer friendly shades. They all applied and blended beautifully. Even the matte shades surprisingly. I did end up using another darker shade from another palette to balance out all of the coral and peach tones. But it all still makes for a super cute look.

I’d like to note that the shades Centerfold and Slim Fit are not intended for use in the immediate eye area. I wish I had known that before applying Slim Fit on my lower lash line. I just know some of that got in my eye. I’ll probably overthink that one of these nights I’m trying to go to sleep at a reasonable hour.

I’ll definitely purchase more of their pressed products. I’d like to see them offer some larger palettes so that we could build our own palettes in one place. In the meantime I got myself a MAC palette to store all of my ColourPop shadows. I can probably fill it up already. For $5 a pop you really can’t go wrong. Some shades are even on sale for $4! I’d definitely pop in and take a look. But be careful with their shipping. I guess with ColourPop it’s a risk we all take. One can only hope that they start putting more effort into their customer service in the near future.

You can see a look I created with the Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette below. I applied Take a Break on my lid, Centerfold in my inner crease, and Slim Fit in my outer crease and on my lower lash line (lightly).

Note: Remember when I talked about those beautiful It Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow Palettes? I’m wearing Instant Nude Glow in the photos above! Those palettes are gorgeous and I highly suggest testing them out if you spot them at your local Ulta!

ColourPop now offers larger palettes! I’ve already ordered a few and will post about it soon!

May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Swatches: #32 Practicable, Electric, Sin
1. Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin
3. Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric
4. Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable
5. Royal & Langnickel Precision Angled

Before I get into the contents of my May Ipsy Glam Bag, can we talk about how cute the actual bag is? It has little ice creams on it! It’s such a fun Summer bag. I’ll definitely get use out of this one.

I don’t know what to say about the Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Exfoliating Cleanser. It’s an exfoliator and it’s always good to have some samples laying around for travel. Which is probably what I’ll use this for.

Seeing the Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin included in this month’s bag was a pleasant surprise. It’s a really pretty champagne color. I already own the shade Aura and really like it. So it was nice to be able to try another shade.

I’ve never heard of Jelly Pong Pong. But I kinda like saying the name. The Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric is really pretty. I’m digging the gold and rose gold combo. These shadows are very pigmented. They’re really soft and just glided onto my hand. I can see this little duo making for a nice bronzey Summer look!

Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable is a pretty cinnamon nude. It actually does look more like a cinnamon nude once it fully dries. However, it takes quite a while. Hence the darkened, wet swatch. Ipsy claims it’s the unicorn of liquid lipsticks. It looks like velvet and feels like silk. It applied nicely, but it feels really weird on the lips. I wouldn’t say it feels like silk at all. It’s very heavy and made my lips feel tight. It also has a scent that lingers. I’ll definitely be passing this one on.

The Royal & Langnickel Precision Angled is a vegan friendly brush. It’s always good to have extra brushes laying around.

While this bag wasn’t as exciting as the first, the actual bag itself is cute and it did contain a few items I’d totally use. Overall, not bad.
