I know what you must be thinking. Another ColourPop palette? What can I say? I’m weak when it comes to their cute little palettes. But who can’t use a good neutral palette?

The Going Coconuts Palette really is the cutest little neutral palette. It contains 9 eyeshadows including 3 metallics and 6 mattes. They’re all nicely pigmented and applied and blended beautifully! Even the darker brown shades and those shades usually give me trouble. I’m not really surprised though. Their shadows hardly ever give me any problems. I truly do love the formula.

For a small neutral palette, I can easily create quite a few looks with it. Without having to reach for another palette. You can see a look I created with the Going Coconuts Palette below.

For this look I used the shades Shredded, Palm Reader, Coolada, Shell Ya, and Nutty.

Overall, I’d have to say this is a beautiful palette! While the colorful palettes mostly catch my eye, I can definitely appreciate a nice neutral palette. This one was nicely put together. I’m sure most of us have many of these shades already, but it does include at least one unique shade. Get Crackin’ is the prettiest brown with shimmer! I’m really drawn to these types of shadows. I’d like to see more of these.

Did you purchase the Going Coconuts Palette? What’s your favorite neutral palette?

I’ve been doing lots of work behind the scenes. I cleaned up my sidebar. I added a few new sections. Midwest Kitchen will feature new recipes, meal ideas, tips and tricks. Maybe even new food finds or the occasional treat share. I can’t take credit for this. A friend of mine kindly suggested it and I really loved the idea. Spotlight will feature new products, swatches, cool finds, or even just songs I’m loving at the moment. I might even throw in a rant. If you know me personally then you know I can be very ranty. I’m going to try and update these daily or at the very least a few times a week. So check back from time to time to see what’s new.

I also changed up the footer on my posts. I sectioned it off to display info on products mentioned in the post. I also added a look section where I list other products worn. I’m not going to lie, I tend to wear the same stuff quite often. However, I do change it up from time to time. Especially if I’m testing out a new product. I just thought it might be helpful. I usually only post one or two looks to go with my reviews. This way you get to see when and how I’m using these products again. And maybe see what products I really love. You’ll see ColourPop a lot. That’s for sure.

Speaking of ColourPop, remember when I said I was going to stop buying their palettes? Well, that was a lie. Not that there’s anything wrong with their palettes. They’re easily some of my favorites. The problem is I have so many! They all start to look the same after a while and I’m sure I own every shade they’ve ever made. Yet here they are with their millions of palettes named after various colors, fruits, and animals and I go running to scoop them all up. Because who doesn’t need a turkey palette? Seriously, ColourPop, don’t get any ideas haha!

Anyway, the Smoke Show Palette really caught my eye. I’m not one to shy away from color, but grays and blacks intimidate me. I always feel like my look turns muddy. But I caved and bought the palette because it was cute and I thought it might be fun to experiment with. The Smoke Show Palette contains 9 eyeshadows including 3 metallics and 6 mattes. They are nicely pigmented and applied and blended beautifully! I don’t think my look turned out muddy, but I did reach for a brown shade from another palette to tone it down a bit. You can see a look I create with the Smoke Show Palette below.

Overall, I’d have to say I love the palette. You could very easily create a few looks without reaching for another palette. I personally feel more comfortable adding another shade, but it really isn’t necessary. My favorite shades would have to be Ignite and Night Dream. I’ll probably get the most use out of these two.

Did you purchase the Smoke Show Palette? What about any of ColourPop’s other palettes? It seems they are coming out with a new one every week. They have to run out of colors/food/objects eventually.

Y’all know that I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with ColourPop. For the most part I truly love their products. I love how much they’ve expanded. So when they finally introduced a foundation I just had to try it.

They claim that their No Filter Natural Matte Foundation is oil free with buildable full coverage that is formulated with soft blurring pigments. Giving you a natural matte finish. Sounds amazing, huh? I love how easy it was to select a shade. I went with Light 60 which is suitable for light skin tones with peachy undertones. I did feel like I had to work a little quickly while applying it. I didn’t feel rushed or anything, but it did feel like it dried a little quicker than my go-to foundations. It took a little work blending it out, but once blended it looked pretty amazing! For like an hour. Then it started to break up and looked incredibly cakey. In fact when my husband came home from work I asked him how it looked. He said it looked nice, but it was cakey. He asked me what happened because my skin never looks like that. I was crushed. I really wanted to love this. It felt great on my skin, it did a great job covering my redness, and it didn’t cause any irritation. But the negatives definitely outweigh the positives here.

Overall, I’m going to have to say this is a hard pass for me. In fact if I could return it I would. Unfortunately ColourPop doesn’t accept returns so I’m stuck with it. I’ve tested this with a few different primers and even tried mixing it with a little moisturizer. No matter what I did it started breaking up after just one hour. I’ve had much cheaper foundations perform better than this.

Have you tried the ColourPop No Filter Natural Matte Foundation? What are your thoughts?

Midwest Kitchen

Falafel - This recipe has been my go-to falafel recipe for years! I make very few changes. First, I cut the recipe in half so that I don't have waste. Last, I only use garbanzo beans. To serve, I layer homemade tzatziki sauce, halved falafel balls, diced cucumber/tomato/onion, and shredded lettuce on a flour tortilla. Then I wrap it up like a burrito and slice in half. I store the reamining cooked falafel in an airtight container in the fridge for easy lunches throughout the week. I reheat falafel on a skillet lightly coated with cooking spray or oil.
