Not sure if the previous Colourpop palette posts count but I’m calling this V1 because I’m using shadows I’ve depotted and placed into one large palette.
This is the x-large palette I used to combine several of my small Colourpop palettes. It wasn’t an easy decision, especially since most of my Colourpop impulse buys are due to the packaging, but I love being able to see all my options.
I did have to label the shadows myself and at some point I stopped including what palette they were from but it is easy to Google the shadow name and see what palette it was in.
Shadows used :
Champs from Yes, Please
Top Notch from All I See is Magic
Hard from Double Entendre
Elfish from Dream St
Money Tree from Fortune
The highlighter is a recent Jaclyn Cosmetics loose highlighters and the bronzer is from the Tarte Ave Princess palette.
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 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.
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.
