At the beginning of the year I mentioned how I wanted to shop my stash more and use up stuff I already have. Now that I have a new job and lots of extra money that hasn’t changed. However, I did say that I would make an exception for essentials and the occasional shiny new item. If it catches my eye and I feel like it’s a must-have. Not a whole lot has caught my eye lately. That is until ColourPop came out with some new stuff. Again. It seems like they release new stuff every day. But their Summery looking palettes really jumped out at me. Not that I need to be rolling into work with bright orange and turquoise eyes. Still, that didn’t stop me from purchasing both the Sol and Mar Palettes.

First up is the Sol Palette. The packaging is really colorful and fun. The first thing I noticed was the plastic packaging. All of my other ColourPop Palettes are housed in cardboard packaging. I’m not sure which I like more. I suppose the plastic is much easier to clean. Which is a good thing considering these palettes arrived a little messy.

The Sol Palette contains 9 eyeshadows. It’s a nice mix of mattes, satins, and metallics. They swatched and applied beautifully. I never really had an issue with the quality of their products. Some can be hit or miss, but I actually love their eyeshadows. My only issue with this palette is that there isn’t a brow bone shade. Well, one that I’d use anyway. So I did have to reach for another palette to complete my look. I also used a shade from the Mar Palette to balance out my look so that there wasn’t so much orange. I think both of the palettes compliment each other beautifully.

You can see a look I created with the Sol Palette below. I’m wearing New Digs and Dynamite in my crease. OOO on my lid with B+B patted in the center. Detour from the Mar Palette on my lower lash line. El Rey from the Mar Palette in the inner corner of my eye. I used a different shade from another palette for my brow bone.

Overall, I’m really digging the Sol Palette. I personally don’t feel comfortable creating a looking using just those 9 eyeshadows. However, it does compliment the Mar Palette nicely and since I did purchase both creating a look I was comfortable with was very easy.

A quick update on the blog. I know things have been a little quiet around here. I’ve actually been working behind the scenes a bit. I just finished logging my entire makeup and skin care inventory. This will help me see what I have on hand, what I’ve already blogged, and what I would like to reblog. I’d also like to share my setup again. It’s changed so much since the last time I shared it. I finally have it set up just the way I want it. I’ll probably share that post during the Fall though since I have a ton of decorations that I plan to set out. In the meantime I do have some newer stuff I’d like to share along with some older stuff I have rediscovered. Thank you for still stopping by. It really means a lot to me.

ColourPop NKLA X Laura Lee Bundle

Swatches: Bam, Glam, Wham

I’m still making my way through my Holiday Haul products. I’m just about done. Then maybe I can finally share some of the newer stuff I have piled up on my desk.

This is the ColourPop NKLA X Laura Lee Bundle. It’s a collaboration with ColourPop and Laura Lee. All net profits from the purchase of any ColourPop X Laura Lee product go towards Best Friends Animal Society. A leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. The collaboration consists of a Super Shock Shadow Foursome and a Lip Bundle. I bought the Lip Bundle which includes 3 lip products.

  • Bam – Red Berry (Ultra Satin Lip)
  • Glam – True Rose Gold (Ultra Metallic Lip)
  • Wham – Champagne Nude Metallic With Silver Glitter (Ultra Glossy Lip)

Bam was a little messy to apply and can sometimes look a tad patchy. Once you even everything out it’s a really gorgeous shade. It was fairly comfortable and long lasting.

Glam was my favorite of the trio. Y’all already know that I’m a sucker for rose gold. Aside from the pretty rose gold shade this lipstick applied beautifully and made for a comfortable wear. The formula was nice and creamy. Almost mousse like. I’m really digging their metallics.

Wham is the second Ultra Glossy Lip I have tried. It’s very different from the first one. This one contained chunks of glitter and felt a little gritty, but not overly so. I definitely noticed the texture however, I wouldn’t say it was bothersome. It did look metallic. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. After seeing it in photos I decided that I really did like it. It wasn’t super sticky and was fairly comfortable.

Overall, I’d have to say that this was a really pretty trio. All of the shades are very wearable including the metallic. This is definitely one of their more glamorous looking collections. I’m glad that I picked it up when I had the chance. Unfortunately this Lip Bundle is currently sold out, but it looks like the Super Shock Shadow Foursome is still available.

A little side note: I’m suddenly very aware of how I can’t seem to snap a face swatch photo without my hand by my neck. I looked back on my photos and notice that this wasn’t always the case. It seems to be a new thing since the move. I admit that it’s been tricky getting into a rhythm in the new place. My setup is very different. It’s much better, but I have to remember my best angles and such. Maybe bear with me while I work my way through this very awkward phase? Haha!

Swatches: Dreamy, Moon Child, Rêver

I’ve actually been sitting on this one for a while. I’ve been meaning to post it ever since my Holiday Haul post. Unfortunately it had to take a backseat for a while. Better late than never?

When I first saw promo photos for the collection I wasn’t totally sold. It looked great, but I just felt that they were shades I’ve seen already. Nothing really stood out. That is until I started seeing some swatches and looks and decided that I did in fact need it in my life. It really was too pretty to pass up! ColourPop really does go all out for their collections and I admit to falling for the hype. They make it so easy!

ColourPop X Kathleen Lights Dream PR Collection

This collaboration with Kathleen Lights consists of the Dream St. Pressed Powder Shadow Palette and the Dream Team Lip Bundle. The eyeshadow palette contains 12 eyeshadows. It’s a nice combination of mattes, metallics, and satins. The shadows are all nicely pigmented. The metallics are so soft and creamy that they just glide on! They all applied and blended beautifully. Then again most of their shadows do. I’ve only ever had an issue with a few of their mattes, but that wasn’t at all the case with this palette.

The lip bundle contains an Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade Moon Child which is a pink nude with gold glitter. This was my first time experimenting with their Ultra Glossy Lip. I was not disappointed! It wasn’t super sticky and it didn’t feel heavy on my lips. It was a very comfortable wear. I was very surprised. I wasn’t expecting to love this as much as I did. Next is the Ultra Satin Lip in the shade Dreamy which is a peachy pink. This has to be one of my new favorite shades from ColourPop. It’s gorgeous! I’m really digging the satin formula. It’s so comfortable! Last, but certainly not least is the Ultra Satin Lip in the shade Rêver which is a neon orange red. I had no idea that this was going to be so… neon! When I first put it on I had to take a step back. My first thought was ‘No way in hell am I leaving the house wearing this!’ But after looking at the photos I was convinced that it somehow works (with the palette). I think the more subtle eye look helped to tone it down a bit. I’m really digging it. It’s definitely a unique shade in my collection and a very fun one at that! You can see these lip shades along with the palette in action below.

Overall, I loved this collection. It contained a nice variety of the products ColourPop has to offer and the shades all compliment each other beautifully. I don’t think they still have the PR Collection in stock, but you can still purchase the products separately. I’ve listed them both below.
