Colour Pop Spring: Nectar

 Colour Pop went the way of Too Faced with the Peach colored products, which is fine by me because I love peach tones especially in the spring it's very fresh! I am still pretty into the Colourpop pressed shadows, I think they are great dupes for higher end shadows! In this look I used the Blow Me Away palette with a few select other peach shadows in the line. I was super excited that they brought the super shock shadow Flipper back, because it's such a soft orange but it has silver sparkles to make a huge impact. Take a Break is one of my favorites because it's such a beautiful peach/gold duo chrome and it looks great as an inner corner highlight. Issues is a great matte peach transition shade and Centerfold and Cut Outs are great bold mattes as well.

I added Ultra Satin Lippie in Botanical to the peachy mix, which is a really bright peachy coral look which I love wearing during this time of year.

Here's my look:

On Wednesdays We Wear Wednesday

 I have been really bad lately when it comes to taking pictures of my eyes.. I am so sorry guys!  I will try to get better but the next few posts are going to be full face. A few months back Colour pop dropped some new liquid lip sticks and they were all based off the days of the week and I think I purchased 4 or 5 shades out of the 7, Wednesday was great because it was the color pink and duh you have to wear pink on Wednesdays right?

I used another old favorite of mine the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette which is still so good and awesome quality. Also I'm sure I have said this before but Satin Sheets makes a gorgeous highlighter as well as an eye shadow and today I used Totally Fetch as a blush.

I don't know if I mentioned this before but I have been using the Fiona Stiles contour palette for a while now and I have been loving it! I've been using it with the NYX Fan brush which just blends everything out like a dream!

Another look for brunch?

I still haven't changed my opinion about the Lorac I Love Brunch palette.. but I do like the pastel looks for Spring. I used again my Sephora Modern Watercolors palette to achieve this look. The Cargo Swimmables liner in Lake Como really made this look pop.

Baby Talk

After finally playing catch up for a couple months, hopefully I will be posting on here regularly. This look was done with Colour Pop's Super Shock Pigment in Baby Talk, which is a really rich red pigment. It's not advised to use these pigments on the eyes but I used it as a liner and I didn't have any issues with it.

I also used the Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette, which I still really love using and I paired the look with Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Pookie Bear, which is a beautiful bright coral shade.

Grammy's 2017: Lady Gaga

Oh man I am so late in posting this look.. but I was blown away by Lady Gaga's look at the Grammy's this year! Red I feel while now on trend, it's one of those risky colors but it's also such a fun color to play with on the eyes and if you are not careful you can look sick, which I'm sure I have made the mistake of looking before.. lol

Dupes: Lorac I Love Brunch Palette

So Pastel palettes seem to be all the rage right now, with the Kat Von D Pastel Goth palette and then Lorac comes out with The I Love Brunch palette and while yes pastels for Spring isn't anything new but when I saw that this was coming out I was interested in at least swatching it because the pastels where pretty and the bright aqua shade was really speaking to me.. however looking at the setup of this palette it reminded me of another palette that I did purchase last year, the Sephora + Pantone Modern Watercolors palette.  You look at these two together they have the same shades..  so no I didn't need to purchase this palette.  I actually swatched it while I was working and I have some pictures to share with you guys..

Ok me being ghostly pale, the pigmentation sucks on these shadows, there is maybe 4 or 5 shades that are workable but that's not enough for me to purchase a $44 palette. If you want to purchase this you will need to use a white base to make the colors pop and really build up the colors.. I still had to do this with my Sephora Modern Watercolors palette..

Also I tried a new mascara from Butter London and I hate it.. it's called Iconoclast and it makes my lashes so clumpy (you will see in the closeup)



Something new I tried and I like is the new Bare It All foundation from PUR and I quite like it. It's thicker but it really gives off a nice natural, skin look. It doesn't look cakey and I applied it with a Artis dupe brush that PUR came out with and I like it more than my Moda brush.


Here's my look:

PB and Honey Palette

After months of seeing this palette being teased on Instagram, I knew I needed it in my life. I was lucky because I used a 20% off coupon plus I had $11 dollars in Ulta rewards so I bought it as soon as it was released to platinum members. Then I anticipated it's arrival to my home and when it finally came I opened the box and the packaging was so adorable. I opened up the palette and all the colors were so pretty and eye catching.. and then I swatched it...  Where is the pigment Too Faced? Why aren't the colors showing up on my ghostly pale skin? One of the colors Creamed Honey is my exact skin tone, so actually that color works great for an all over base but the rest of the colors were so disappointing! I had to wet my brush and keep layering the Going Nuts shade..What happened? Why aren't these better quality like the other 9 pan palettes because all of the other ones I have are fantastic. I think after this I'm taking a break from Too Faced shadow palettes...
