Hi all! I hope everyone is well! I have been very good this year when it comes to purchasing makeup! This is my first haul of the year! I’m not really on a no or low buy, but I’m trying to be careful in what I get. I did purchase a lot last year! I have purchased the new L’Oreal foundation (let me know if you would like a review) and I just got the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette on sale and I will be reviewing that palette.
I decided to make a Colourpop order because they are always coming out with cool new products, and I wanted to try some. I also looked at my order history, and foudn that I hadn’t ordered from Colourpop since last June! That’s crazy! It’s definitely time to try some new makeup!
Blur Lux Lipstick in Hey Mr. DJ ($7 USD) – Soft petal pink
Lippie Pencil in Brink ($5 USD) – Terracota rose
It’s My Pleasure Palette ($12 USD)
The Twins Loose Pigment ($6 USD)
BFF Mascara in Black on Black ($8 USD)
Brow Boss in Ash Brown ($5 USD)
I have heard great things about the lip liner and have been wanting to try the Lux Lipstick. The Blur formula is new. I probably should have tried the regular formula first. Both of these products are nice, but the lipstick is way to bright for me. It’s supposed to be a soft petal pink, but It looks very bright on my fair skin. The pencil is nice, though I wish I got that in a lighter shade. It is not as bright as the lipstick, so I can still use it under nudes.
I have swatched these below.
This is a collaboration between Colourpop and YouTuber Kathleenlights. I picked up The Twins because I’m a Gemini! It is an intense pink with a coppery duochrome. This is really pretty. I apply it with a damp brush, so I don’t get all of the fall out. It’s so gorgeous, as you can see below:
Left to right is the lipstick, lipliner and pigment. You can really tell that the pigment has a pink to orange duochrome. It’s very pretty! I do like the liner, but I probably won’t wear the lipstick.
I also picked up their new mascara in black. It’s okay. It gives a lot of volume, but I like mascaras that give my lashes length. I will continue wearing it, and with a primer under it, I get better length. They also have these in bright colors, so if you love colorful mascara, you might want to check this out!
I’ve been doing more with my brows lately, so am happy to try a new pencil. This one is pretty nice. It’s very waxy, so if that’s the type of pencil’s you like, you will love it. I have used it a couple of times and like it. I think I need more practice with it, but will keep trying it out!
I love purple, and so I had to pick it up. Plus, it’s only $12, which is so affordable. I will be posting a review this month with swatches.
I also have purchased another one of these for a future Instagram giveaway. I just hit 4000 followers and will post my giveaway when I get to 5000. So check it out at @fortyflirtyfab on Instagram! I also picked up a pigment and one of the new lip glosses from Colourpop. I will be adding more makeup items to the giveaway, of course. Stay tuned!
