Colourpop Green/Teal SSS look

I can’t remember when it was but, I purchased the Colourpop “Is This Real Life” Super Shock Shadow vault when it first released. First, because I’m a sucker for vaults and second, I really enjoy the formula. However, because it was a “limited edition” release (it’s since been abatible two or three times again) I hadn’t really touched the set.

For reasons we won’t speak of (oops), I finally started using the SSS in this collection


For the eyes I used: Colourpop Candy Castle – Rainbow trail in the crease as the first color and Lord Licorice to blend after I applied the SSS

From the vault I used Left on Thread and Take me Higher SSS

I was impressed that even after so long the SSS were creamy and color rich.

Have you tried the formula? What are your thoughts?

Do you have a certain makeup item you don’t use out of fear of using it up?

Blue eyeshadow

The upside of not leaving my house is I can play with makeup looks I don’t feel the most comfortable with. This means blue eyeshadow!

Products used:

Sydney Grace: Success, Storm Clouds, Moonlit Kingdom and Palace

Colourpop Prance gel pot liner

The eyeshadows applied beautifully with a dry, dense flat brush (Morphe M209) and blended easily.

I really struggle with the Colourpop gel pot liners. They don’t apply smoothly like typical gel liners and they easily cake up and break up but I refuse to give up on them, because I own the entire vault.

I don’t think this is a look I’d ever wear out but I enjoyed playing with the colors and combination!

Blue Eyeshadow

I’m not typically comfortable with wearing blue eyeshadow but now that it’s baseball season I’ve stepped up my game for the sake of the Dodgers 😍Last season we didn’t go to any games so this season we’re definitely making up for it.Today’s look consisted of the following Colourpop single pressed shadows:Issues, Paper Tiger, Sea Stars, Popular Demand and Quantum SleepI would definitely recommend using a primer or white base for this. I’m halfway through the day and had to touch up my lid color.
