Swatches: Secrets, Soft Core, Fair Play, On the Fence

At this point I’m kind of digging through the stash looking for things I haven’t blogged yet. When I saw this lonely quad from ColourPop I was surprised because I had transferred the others into larger palettes. Then I remembered that I hadn’t blogged it yet which is why it was still in the original quad palette.

This is the Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in Belle of the Ball. I feel bad for sharing it a year and a half later especially since you can’t even find these quads on ColourPop’s site anymore. But it was too pretty not to share. I’m sure you could easily find dupes for these shades and create your own palette. Most of their palettes contain similar shades anyway. In fact the shade Soft Core is featured in the Ooh La La Palette.

Anyway, I just had to get Belle of the Ball. It came out right around the time they first launched their pressed shadows. The pink shades really stood out to me. As you can probably tell from the swatches they are nicely pigmented. Secrets is the only shade that doesn’t really show well on my lid. I did apply it in my crease, but I’m not sure if you can even notice it. They all blended beautifully.

You can see a look I created with the ColourPop Pressed Shadow Palette in Belle of the Ball below. I applied Secrets, Soft Core and Fair Play in my Crease, On the Fence on my lid, and a combination of Soft Core and Fair Play on my lower lash line.

Overall, I’d have to say it was a gorgeous little palette. The quality is everything I’ve come to expect from ColourPop. It’s no surprise that their products make the majority of my collection.

Of course I had to sneak one last ColourPop product in before the year ends. When I saw that Ulta was getting TWO ColourPop palettes exclusive to them I had to break my Ulta ban and order one. The Rendezvous Palette had my name all over it! Just look at those shades!

The Rendezvous Palette contains 12 eyeshadows. It’s a nice balance of metallics and mattes. The bolder shades are what really stood out to me. As you can tell from the swatches they are nicely pigmented. Textual is the only shadow that needed to be built up a bit. It’s a tad patchy too. It applies much better on the lid and does blend out ok, but it’s definitely not one of their better mattes. It’s still cooperative though. You just have to work with it a little. Aside from that the other shades applied and blended beautifully. I’ve already created a few looks with this palette.

I’m really trying to get in the habit of creating at least 2 different looks to go along with palette reviews. Even though I do reach for my palettes more than once, I rarely follow up and share my other looks. So I’m going to try and do just that going into the new year.

Anyway, you can see a few looks I created with the Rendezvous Palette below.

The gloss I’m wearing in the first look is Dust2Dust from the Flying Colours Liquid Lipstick Vault. I’m trying to work shades I haven’t swatched yet into looks so that you can see them all.

Overall, I’d have to say it’s another great palette from ColourPop. If you’re into bold colorful shades I think you’ll love it.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with ColourPop, but I have to admit that their holiday collections never disappoint. When I first saw photos of their Holiday 2018 Collection I was pretty excited. It was just so colorful! It really caught my eye. Well, I should say the Flying Colours Liquid Lipstick Vault caught my eye. Their lip products are some of my favorites so for me this was a must have item. I still waited on swatches to ensure the quality was good, but I couldn’t find many. So I ended up buying it as soon as it launched and hoped for the best.

The Flying Colours Liquid Lipstick Vault contains 14 Liquid Lipsticks including 7 Ultra Glossy Lips, 3 Ultra Matte Lips, 2 Ultra Satin Lips, and 2 Ultra Metallic Lips. They all come in limited edition packaging which consists of holographic caps and sparkle type designs on the tube. It looks like a rainbow with the placement of the shades in the outer packaging! I think this is easily one of their prettiest holiday sets.

So far I have worn 7 of these. The glosses are so pretty! They smell like vanilla! My favorites are Dreamaaholic and Paper Moon. The metallics are a little more textured than some of the others I’ve tried. Morning Glory was fairly comfortable, but it did get a little flakey after eating. It’s a really pretty shade though. Of all the mattes Skyfall is my favorite. It’s nice and lightweight, but can be a little drying. This also left behind a bit of a stain after removal. Pitter Ponder is really pretty, but it was tricky applying. I had to work at evening it out and it still looked a little streaky afterward. This would have to be my least favorite lipstick of the bunch. I don’t hate it or anything. It’s a very pretty shade. I’m just not sure how much use it’ll get. You can see the 7 shades I have tested below.

I decided to crop the photos this way so that you can see the shimmer in the glosses and overall application of each lipstick much better. I know they’re not the most flattering photos given that you can see my double chin and all. Maybe just focus on the lipsticks? They really are pretty!

Overall, I’m very happy with the Flying Colours Liquid Lipstick Vault. I absolutely love it! Do I think it’s a must have item? Only if you’re a ColourPop Liquid Lipstick fan like me. If that’s the case I think you’ll love it. Otherwise maybe try a few of the single shades. Or one of the smaller Lip Bundles. Those are pretty cute too.
