Colourpop SSS Cookies n’ Cream

Colourpop Cookies n’ Cream is part of their new Feels Like Magic SSS vault (November 2022).

It has a black base with green-gold glitter and is the ultra-glitter formula.

I didn’t use a base or glitter primer to apply this and you can see there are some patchy spots. I went over the area three or four times. I waited a few seconds between the last and second to last layer which I should have done between the first and second layer.

I think it is possible to wear this without a base but it would probably pop more with a dark base.

I found it a little difficult to remove just using a makeup wipe which I would normally not use other than in between these swatches. I didn’t get any glitter fall out but I only wore it for a few minutes.

It doesn’t look like this shade is available outside of the vault.

Colourpop SSS Monstera

I would like to start off by tipping my hats off to Colourpop for naming this beautiful green shadow after a popular house plant. I don’t know if that’s true but I’d like to think it is, haha.

This is a gorgeous dark olive green with green-gold glitter. The formula is ultra-glitter.

I love this green/gold color. It did take a few layers to build up to an even application but I think it could be worn on its own. I think this would benefit from being used over a glitter glue but as it is, I found it a little difficult to remove using only a makeup wipe.

As of December, 2022 it is not available outside the Feels Like Magic SSS vault.

Colourpop SSS Vol 1

As I go through all my makeup, I’d like to have somewhere to reference color swatches and quick eyeshadow ideas. I figured uploading them here is as good a place as any :).

I used Snap Dragon for the base, definitivamente had to revive this one with some Duraline

I know the proper way of reviving these is to break them up and repress them using Duraline but ain’t nobody got time for that, so I just add a drop on top and get the pigment. I’d also like to add that the SSS already have a nice staying power but with Duraline they tend to be a little harder to remove.

Obvi is an ultra-glitter that doesn’t have a lot of pigment, so I used it over Snap Dragon

I finished it off using Maybelline Lasting Drama Matte eyeliner in 910 Jade Olive. I’m impressed at how smooth and pigmented this eyeliner showed up despite not being used in a while

I hope these posts are also useful to others :)!

Maybelline Dream BB Fresh 8-in-1 Skin Perfector

I’ve been testing out new foundations/BB cream/CC creams lately and today I used the Maybelline Dream BB Fresh 8-in-1 Skin Perfector

I purchased it at Ulta which carries 5 non-inclusive shades, not sure if the brand carries a larger variety elsewhere.

I purchased 120 medium which looked to have a neutral undertone in the swatches provided. It came out a little darker than I thought it would but it applied nicely once I spread it out and matched my skin.



Since it is a BB cream the color of the product is more forgiving.

I set the cream using the new elf Camo pressed powder. I think they look nice together but either my skin is too dry for this or I need something more skin smoothing.

It’s a nice light BB cream that helps even out skin tone and provides you with spf 30.

I went over some areas I wanted more coverage on with concealer.

This is a product I’ll keep using before I give my final thoughts.

Have you tried this? What are your thoughts and do you have recommendations of other light to medium coverage products I should try?

This has been in my drafts for a cool second and since then I’ve misplaced the product *face-palm*
