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.

Swatch

I actually received the Too Faced La Creme Lip Cream in 9021Ohhh as a Christmas gift from a fellow beauty blogger a few years back. I’ve always meant to blog about it, but it kept getting pushed back with all of the new releases and life stuff. It’s just so beautiful that I had to share it with you all. Even if it is late.

It’s no secret that I favor liquid lipsticks. I know that not everyone is a fan because they can be drying. I’ve never experienced any issues with them (aside from a few that really are drying), but I have to admit that I sure do miss regular old tube lipsticks. I have a few drawers full of liquid lipsticks and find myself reaching for them more than anything. But the moment I reach for a tube I’m left wondering why I don’t show them more love.

The La Creme Lip Cream is actually my first Too Faced lip product. I have quite a few of their palettes and even a few face products, but I never tried any of their lipsticks. That is until I was gifted this beauty. 9021Ohhh is the most gorgeous shade of red. It’s nicely pigmented and you can probably tell from my swatch how creamy it is. It glided onto my lips effortlessly. It applied beautifully and made for the most comfortable wear. I did have to touch up a bit throughout the day, but my lips never felt dry. In fact they felt nicely moisturized.

You can see the Too Faced La Creme Lip Cream in 9021Ohhh below.

Overall, I’d have to say I was impressed. I love the packaging. I love the shade. And the formula is pretty great. I’d definitely buy another shade. I’ll have to see if I can swatch a few to find myself a nice nude. While I’m digging 9021Ohhh, I think it would be nice to have a nice every day nude to wear that is just as comfortable.

Have you tried any of the La Creme Lip Creams? Which one is your favorite?

Swatches: GildedBare Glow, PinkChampagne Glow

After professing my love for the Pixi Beauty PixiGlow Cake in PinkChampagne Glow I couldn’t wait to share the GildedBare Glow with you.

In case you missed my previous post, GildedBare Glow is a 3-in-1 cheek palette containing contour, blush and highlighter all in one. You can use the shades individually or swirl them together for a beautiful cheek color with a natural glow. Which is usually what I do. However, with the PixiGlow Cakes I prefer sectioning them off into two. I like to swirl the blush and contour shades together for my blush and apply the highlighter after. It looks so much more natural that way.

What I really love about these is that even though they are nicely pigmented, they look so natural. They apply like a dream and photograph so well! It’s no secret that I don’t like looking at photos of myself, but the ones where I’m wearing these PixiGlow Cakes are easily some of my favorites. And I don’t mind looking at them. In fact I can’t stop looking at them. The color is just too pretty! You can see the Pixi Beauty PixiGlow Cake in GildedBare Glow in action below. I also added the highlighter to the inner corner of my eye.

I thought the PinkChampagne Glow was my favorite. But after testing the GildedBare Glow again I think it’s a tie. I love them both!

Have you tried the Pixi Beauty PixiGlow Cakes yet? Which one is your favorite?
