Morphe 35 O3 Look

Primer: Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas primer and Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut primer
Face: Covergirl Full Spectrum Matte Ambition All Day Foundation. I think I have the lightest shade in this collection, definitely made for more melanin rich peeps.
Measurable Difference Concealer Collection. We received this in a Boxycharm box three years ago and I’ve kept this since then, still plastic wrapped. I love how well this product performs! I used it for contouring, bronzing and concealer
Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder for under the eyes and NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop powder for all over
ABH Contour Kit powder
Smashbox Bronze Lights Warm Matte
Colourpop Interstellar pressed blush
Marc Jacob’s Gilty O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer NYX glitter primer for the lid area where I applied the shimmer shade
Shadows: Tempting/ Flame Game/ Red Alert/ Power Play/ Trance
@nyxcosmetics Fill and Fluff in Espresso
Tarte Big Ego Mascara
Kylie Cosmetics Madeline

The NYX glitter primer made a big difference in how the shimmer shade applied and how long it stayed on!

Colourpop Wild Nothing Collection

Colourpop released a whole new collection last week and I instantly knew I’d have to get a few of the items (I’ve completely abandoned my no spend, oops).

Being a desert girl with a succulent collection almost as abundant as my makeup this packaging sucked me in instantly!

As with most Colourpop launches, items sold out almost as soon as they were listed. Fortunately for me I was grabbing food and was able to park right at 10 to place my order.

I picked up the palette, three of the new creme shadows, all three blushes and for the heck of it one of the lip oils. I’m not one for a glossy lip but curiosity got the best of me.

Purchased items

I’ve seen a few people talk about how the colors of the palette don’t match the theme but I personally think it’s dead on. The desert isn’t vibrant or bright.

I forgot to use the cream shadows but I here I used as many of the products from the collection as possible

Shadows used: Top lid- Top Down/Morningside/No Bounds/Alcove /Spirited. Bottom Lid – Come Together/ Sea Shells. Inner Corner – Salton
Blush On The Horizon
Hot Shot lip oil

Alcove is a nice shimmer shade and Spirited and Salton are super shock formulas.

The blush has glitter specks in the pan but it applies with a nice sheer glow that doesn’t emphasize texture.

The lip oil! I am so happy I picked this up! It feels so soft and hydrating. It’s not sticky at all and doesn’t have that gooey thick feel some oils can have. It has a very light scent that goes away once applied and doesn’t have a taste (I accidentally licked my lips, haha).

Overall I really enjoy the products and color story released.

Makeup Revolution Constellation

The Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless palettes are some of my favorite affordable palettes.

The color stories go so well together in each palette and there is a good variety to chose from. In addition, their tin packaging makes them stand out and hardy enough to travel with.

Today I used the Constellation palette which can look a bit intimidating as a work look palette.

$15 US

I managed to stay away from the one brown color in the palette and put together a look I felt comfortable going in to the office with while using the brighter colors

The colors were pigmented and easy to blend. Overall I was impressed at how vibrant the colors showed up.
