Swatches: Atole, Coquette

Now for the piece I title “Stuff I purchased forever ago and never blogged.’ On the bright side it’s still available on the ColourPop website.

I believe I purchased these 2 sometime last year. Most likely around the same time I ordered the Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in $aucey. I probably should have blogged them all together, but back then I made things extremely difficult for myself and felt the need to blog each item from collections separately. Anyway, here’s the rest of the ColourPop X iluvsarahii Collection (the items I purchased anyway). Over a year later.

ColourPop X iluvsarahii Collection

Ultra Glossy Lip in Atole
The Ultra Glossy Lip in Atole is a metallic gold with a pink shift. This was my first ever Ultra Glossy Lip and I love it! It’s not sticky and feels very comfortable. It’s not the most lasting, but I don’t know of many glosses that are. It’s very easy to touch up though so I don’t mind the short wear time. On the days I don’t feel like fussing over what lipstick to wear I reach for Atole.

Ultra Metallic Lip in Coquette
The Ultra Metallic Lip in Coquette is a rich merlot. This shade is gorgeous and perfect for Fall and the upcoming holiday season. It applied beautifully and made for a comfortable wear. It’s a very bold lipstick and the metallic makes it stand out that much more. I really love their Ultra Metallic Lip and Coquette is a perfect example of why. Just look at it!

I don’t really know much about iluvsarahii, but this collection is a winner in my book. The packaging is really pretty and the products are great!

Have you purchased anything from the ColourPop X iluvsarahii Collection? I’m betting if you did you blogged it last year along with the rest of the beauty community.

I know I said I wasn’t going to buy any Fall-type palettes because I already have so many similar shades, but… I lied. I saw swatches for the ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in a Facebook group and decided I needed it in my life. Plus it was my birthday month. That and this palette has my name all over it!

Give It To Me Straight contains 12 eyeshadows which includes 7 mattes and 5 metallics. It’s full of warm coppers and beautiful mauves. I’m digging that it contains more mattes than metallics. I like a few different finishes to be included in palettes, but I personally prefer there to be more mattes than anything. It also includes a really nice brow bone shade. You can easily create so many looks with this palette without having to reach for another palette.

I absolutely love this palette! It’s nicely pigmented. The shadows apply and blend beautifully. TMI and Actually were a little tricky to work with, but not impossible. In fact TMI is one of my favorites. I also think this palette is perfect for Fall. For me anyway. I love wearing burgundy, mauve, and copper shades. And this palette is full of them!

You can see a few looks I created with the Give It To Me Straight Pressed Powder Shadow Palette below.

I really need to stop buying palettes, but this time I’m glad that I caved. I ended up moving Give It To Me Straight to my most reached for items drawer.

Long time no blog! I’m hoping to get things back to how they were now that I’ve left my job. Yes, I finally threw in the towel. All those who know me probably had their money on one month. Y’all lost because I lasted four whole months this time! All jokes aside, it wasn’t all bad and I actually liked it on some level. I still say it was very good for me, but now that school is back in session I never got to see my son. I was leaving for work as soon as he got off the bus and by the time I got home he’d be sleeping. There were a few other issues that made me want to leave, but I’ve been dealing with them all along so I can’t say that either was taken into consideration. So there you have it. I’ll revisit the work thing when my son is either old enough to stay home alone or he’s off to college. Right now my family need me here. I have to ensure he’s eating healthy meals (something that just doesn’t happen at Grandma’s), doing his homework, and studying. I miss our nightly walks and snack runs. I mean if we eat a salad for dinner and get our steps in afterward it only makes sense to treat ourselves a little. So after weeks of struggling with what to do I finally made my decision. And for once I’m at peace with a decision I made.

Before I get on to my review I just want to let you know what’s been going on. I finally worked on inventory and input every single makeup/skin care item into a fancy little (big?) spreadsheet. I color coded it so that I now know what I have blogged and what I still need to blog. I also decluttered and reorganized everything. Now I’m working on an updated post on how I have everything organized. I’m obviously going to break the post up into a few parts because it’s going to be very photo heavy. In the meantime you can catch a sneak peek on my Instagram Stories. So if there’s anything in particular you want to see or know please let me know in the comments. Now onto my review.

Back when I purchased the Sol and Mar Palettes I also purchased the Paradise City Lip Bundle. This bundle contains 3 of their Ultra Blotted Lip in Vitamin Sea which is an orange terracotta, Ocean Ave which is a hot orange-red, and Soda Pop which is a plummy rose.

This was my first time experimenting with the Ultra Blotted Lip. I don’t really like how Vitamin Sea and Ocean Ave applied. I had to work at them a bit to even it out. Once they dried down I feel like they sucked every ounce of moisture from my lips. Soda Pop was completely different. It was super easy to apply and made for a very comfortable wear. It also happens to be my favorite shade of the trio. I think the bundle contains some really pretty shades, but 2 of the Ultra Blotted Lip products were just ok. Soda Pop is the real winner here. You can see Ocean Ave, Soda Pop, and Vitamin Sea in action below.
