Colour Pop! Initial Reaction

My Colour Pop package arrived today and I am so excited to be sharing them with you! I got six eyeshadows and two lip colors and they are just so beautiful, I just sat there and looked at them for a good five minutes before I even swatched them and *drools* OH MY GOD they are so buttery and beautiful and pigmented and soft and sparkly and beautiful. Here, just look at the pictures below.
 I went with more metallicy colors because that's what I wanted. I got a gold, a bronze, a light gold, a rose gold, silver, and a white.  I love rose gold! If you have any rose gold things you love, comment down below because I would love to try it out!
I ot the lippy sticks in Rocket and Juicy- Rocket is a very neon bright pink and Juicy is a bright pink as well but leans towards the more every day sort of pink shade but is still shockingly bright.
 I can't think of the exact names right now but from left to right is the white, light gold, gold, silver, rose gold, and bronze.   They are so creamy and a dream to swatch.  The texture is very pillowy and soft and definitely something you need to apply with your fingers or a very fluffy brush.
Have you tried Colour Pop? If not, you should because the pricing is amazing- their eyeshadows and lippy sticks are $5 and their blushes are $8 so they are definitely worth checking out and trying :) XOXO

Product I regret buying: E.L.F. Moisturizing Stick Foundation

 A few months back I had done an E.L.F. Haul and got three of their foundations, one being the Moisturizing Stick Foundation. When I tested it on my hand, it seemed perfect- creamy, good coverage, moisturizing yet not greasy.  Then I tried it on and boy was I way beyond disappointed.
 Not only was it difficult to apply, both straight from the stick, with a brush, and with a sponge so I did try my hardest to find a way to make it work.  Needless to say, nothing worked. I was just so disappointed because the other two that I ordered, the Acne Foundation and the Cream compact, work beautifully and don't hang onto the dry patches.  For the stick foundation all I have to say is STAY AWAY.  It clings to every little dry patch even if you moisturized right before you applied the foundation.  Talk about frustrating. First I tried it with just my fingers and that didn't work, then I tried to apply it with the stick straight to my face.  This method didn't work either because then it really clung to the dry patches on your face as well as accentuating those little baby hairs that we can't really do anything about but most women (myself included) are self conscious of those little baby hairs.  This foundation just makes them stick out like a sore thumb.  The buffing brush is where I got the best application but it was still patchy at best.
So, my final verdict is to pass on this product and try either the Revlon Photo Ready Stick foundation or the Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation. XOXO

The Palette Roundup!

Hello my bright shiny Stars! I'm getting back to the regular posting whether it's a blog post or a video review or collection. This is my palette collection and, disclaimer time, in no way am I trying to brag or be like 'oooh look at all my palettes'. No. I bought all of these palettes with my own money except for one, which was my first palette. Disclaimer over.  I made this video to show that you don't have to be palette loyal to one brand nor do you have to have every single palette, I know I have a lot but I don't own every palette out there.  I hope you guys enjoy this video and don't forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and to subscribe for more videos! XOXO

City Color Dual Lip Wand: Review!

Another AMAZING City Color Cosmetics product, the Dual Lip Wand in Pink.  I actually got this initially just for the lipstick because it's a gorgeous rosy/baby/gorgeous pink.   I was in no way interested in the lipgloss but when I put the lipstick on, I just felt the growing want to try the lipgloss, so I did! See picture above.  This gloss/lipstick duo is currently on sale $3.99 on Go check them out. Seriously. Great prices, great products, just great.
