I know that it’s no longer Summer, but I’m still wearing these products regularly and just had to share them. Funny story. When I first received this palette I initially thought it was an eyeshadow palette. I remember thinking that these were some huge pans. Then I thought it would make a nice face palette too. Turns out that it is a face palette. But I went ahead and used it on my eyes too because I thought it made for a nice subtle yet glowy look.

The Pixi Beauty Summer Must-Haves include the Summer Glow Palette which contains some really pretty bronze shades and some gorgeous highlighters. The Large Lash Mascara has been my go-to mascara lately. The wand is a little chunky, but it wasn’t messy or difficult to work with. It did help my lashes appear fuller and longer and didn’t smudge. The LipLift Max is a nice nude gloss that did plump up my lips a bit. At least the bottom lip looks a bit fuller. I liked the cooling sensation too. This is a huge plus during the Summer. The Endless Shade Sticks are creamy and nicely pigmented. These are so convenient and also work nicely as a base.

Overall, I’m loving everything! You will definitely see some of these on my yearly favorites post. I haven’t put the palette and mascara down since I received them. Seriously, look at that glow! Sometimes when I’m in a rush I just use this one palette for everything. It makes for a nice wearable look.

I’ve given up making excuses for the long gaps between posts. Let’s just blame it on 2020. This year has been a hot mess. I do have lots to share though. I’d also like to catch up on some of your posts. But it’ll all have to wait until I have enough time. I have a lot on my plate these days. But I’m not ready to say goodbye to Midwest Glam any time soon. So I’ve just decided to do what I can when I can. That being said, here’s a new post!

ColourPop’s collections have been stressful lately. Or maybe more people are home these days so the launches are just extra chaotic? When this collection launched I had everything in my cart. I went to checkout and poof! Gone. I was pretty mad. But I waited on the Ulta launch and was lucky enough to get all of the items I wanted. You can see everything below complete with swatches.

Obtaining the products was stressful. The actual products are pretty great. I love that they go all out for these collections. The packaging is super cute. Even the lash boxes. This was my first time purchasing their lashes too. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. They’re not the greatest, but they’re really nice and I’ll definitely purchase more. The lip duo was pretty amazing. The lip liner glided on my lips so effortlessly. The lipstick was so creamy and made for a really comfortable wear. It’s been a while since I wore tube lipstick. Or any lipstick for that matter. Mask wearing makes it impossible. But this lipstick made me miss the good old tube lipsticks. I’ve purchased a few of their eyeliners and really love them. These are great additions. They’re much softer though so you have to be careful during application. As for the palette… what can I say? It’s the perfect Fall palette! I know most of us probably have many of these shades already, but a few are definitely unique in my collection. Like the olive shades and even that glitter. I also appreciate the addition of a nice brow bone shade even if it does have a little sparkle in it.

Overall, I have to say that this was beautifully done. I don’t have a single negative. Except maybe easier launches and more product to go around. You can see everything in action below. I’m not wearing any of the eyeliners though. The lashes worn are Clever Witch. Palette shades used are Full Moon, On Toast, Dead Man’s Toe, and Wench.

Swatches: Cat’s Eye, From The Moon

Back when the ColourPop Sailor Moon Collection launched I had purchased a few items. They were too cute to pass up. I really loved the colorful shadows! Of course I had to get the blushes too. Even though I’m always worried when purchasing their blushes. For me they tend to be very powdery. I don’t know what it is. I seem to be one of the very few who don’t get along with the blushes.

The Pretty Guardian Shadow Palette contains 12 eyeshadows in matte, metallic, foiled, and Super Shock finishes. They describe it as a pastel palette, but I personally feel like it’s a little too vibrant to be pastel. Some of the shades are on the softer side though. They all swatched and applied beautifully. The Cat’s Eye and From The Moon Pressed Powder Blushes were exactly what I was expecting. Cat’s Eye is described as a pearlized rose pink with silver pinpoints. This one swatched really nice and applied beautifully. From The Moon is described as a matte vibrant pink and was pretty powdery. It took a little work to get it to show up for a swatch, but it did cooperate. But as you can see from my swatch it is on the patchy side.

You can see a look I created with the ColourPop Sailor Moon Collection below.

Overall, I’d have to say that it’s a super cute collection. I really do love the palette and at least one of the blushes was a hit. I also really love the packaging. I’m kind of wishing I had gotten a few of the lip products as well. Even the glitters were super cute. But I’m not big on glitters so that was an easy pass for me. I do regret not picking up a few of the lip products though.
