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.
