ColourPop released the Orange You Glad? Palette just before we left for our vacation. I thought it would be perfect for Fall so I was debating on ordering it beforehand in case it sold out. I decided to hold off because I didn’t want it sitting at the post office for a few weeks. Thankfully it was still available when we got back. And since there were more new releases I treated myself a little more. It is my birth month after all.

The Orange You Glad? Palette contains 9 eyeshadows. They claim all shades are brand new. I’m sure many of us have similar shades already, but the palette is still cute. And it’s nice to know that they are newer shades. It contains 6 mattes, 2 metallics, and 1 pressed glitter. 4 of these shades are pressed pigments which they claim are not intended for immediate eye area. Of course I didn’t realize that until after I had slathered my whole eye area in said shades. Thankfully I didn’t experience any issues. Not that I ever do experience any issues with their shadows. And my eyes are pretty sensitive.

I know this was meant to be more of a Summer palette, but it looks and feels more Fall friendly to me. I’ll be wearing this a lot throughout the season. You can see a look I created with the Orange You Glad? Palette below.

Overall, I’d have to say that I love this palette. I’m never disappointed with ColourPop’s palettes so it’s no surprise that I love this one too. The shadows are nicely pigmented and apply and blend beautifully. And it’s only $12.00! I keep telling myself that I need to slow down on the palette purchases, but somehow I end up coming here to talk about yet another palette.

I do have lots of new stuff I want to share, but first I want to publish some of my older drafts. I purchased the ColourPop Ultra Metallic Lip in Flitter earlier this year. After seeing it in action in a Facebook group I knew that I needed it. I don’t wear a lot of metallics, but I can’t pass up a pretty one. Especially not one that gives off some rose gold vibes.

It applied nicely and fairly evenly. I did have to work at it a bit. It felt pretty comfortable and wasn’t overly drying. It’s a really beautiful shade. What I like most about it is how wearable it is. I’m definitely not one to shy away from bold shades (not lately anyway), but I can appreciate the more wearable shades. Wearable and all it can still glam up even the simplest look. You can see the ColourPop Ultra Metallic Lip in Flitter in action below.

It’s a good thing I purchased it when I did because it doesn’t appear to be on the website anymore. I’m not sure if it’s been discontinued or maybe I’m missing it. I guess this is why you post things as soon as you get them. Unfortunately I’ve been very busy. I’m really trying to be better with my timing though.

Have you tried any of ColourPop’s metallic lip shades? Which one is your favorite?

I’m slowly, but surely trying to get back into a routine. After everything that’s happened I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. I’m trying to just take it one day at a time. I’m still feeling upset about my hair. I really am trying to look at the bright side. Once a week I go to get my hair deep conditioned, my color refreshed, and I walk out looking like me again. I’m grateful for that. I truly am. But in between appointments when I wash my own hair and I see it crunch back up again, I can’t help but feel sad. And when I see my frail hair breaking off my anxiety kicks in and I wonder how much longer I have to deal with this. I feel like an annoyance when I constantly ask how much longer my hair is going to be like this, but I guess that’s anxiety for you. You constantly need to be reassured. Even though I’m told it will be a while before my hair looks and feels like normal hair again, I wonder if that’s even true. I feel like it’s going to be like this until it grows out and I can cut off the frail bits.

Anyway, last week I talked about my latest ColourPop order. I just had to get my hands on the Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in It’s My Pleasure and Sweet Talk. Had I not laid my eyes on Sweet Talk I probably could have stayed away from ColourPop for a while. But this palette really caught my eye. It’s so pretty and absolutely perfect for Spring!

The Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in Sweet Talk contains 12 eyeshadows in 4 different formulas! It includes their pressed powder, pressed pigment, pressed glitter, and super shock shadow! I’m really digging the variety here. There is a nice combination of transition shades and some really pretty sparkly lid shades. I appreciate the addition of a base shade. I love using those types on my brow bone. The shadows all applied and blended beautifully. Apparently a few shades aren’t meant to be used in the eye area. I probably wouldn’t put the glitters near my eye anyway as they were quite chunky. The pigments didn’t cause any irritation though and my eyes can be pretty sensitive. You can see a look I created with the Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in Sweet Talk below.

Overall, I’d have to say that I really love this palette. I have no clue how I’ll use the pressed glitters, but the rest of the shadows are just gorgeous and will get lots of use. I wouldn’t say it’s a must have since a few of these can’t even be applied near your eyes. I’m pretty sure I even have a few of these shades in other ColourPop palettes and you might too. Or at least it seems that way since they all start to look the same at some point. I really do need to lay off the palettes for a while, but Sweet Talk was just too pretty to pass up. Even the packaging is pretty!

Did you purchase anything from ColourPop’s Spring collection? How would you use the pressed glitters?
