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 Salvaje

Here’s a look using Colourpop’s limited edition palette Salvaje, a collab with singer Becky G.

The palette came out in 2018 and was not the standard quality for Colourpop shadows but even now (don’t judge me) the shadows still apply and blend nicely.

I used NYX glitter primer on my lid under the shimmers, which I do with all shimmers I use, and I used Colourpop Mamacita lip liner as eyeliner to darken the lash line.

Colourpop SSS Vol 2 Pug Life

Here’s a quick look using Colourpop super shock shadow Pug Life.

I had to build up the color with a couple of layers but I didn’t used a base or glitter primer.

I used Nomad Cosmetics FĂȘtes de Provence for the mattes in the look

Side note: I’m not sure what it is about these Nomad palettes but I’ve found them the easiest to use when it comes to pastel and cool toned colors. They’re so pigmented and easy to blend without fading away. I don’t know if it’s the formula or my comfort level but I would highly recommend them!

Colourpop Makeup Look V2

I have a large collection of Colourpop palettes and singles that I’ve put in an X-Large palette that I like to bring out every now and then to try new color combos.

For this look I used the following shadows

These are all from the Getting Fresh palette. I like swatching the shadows I use individually in case someone wants to use the same, or similar, colors but don’t have Colourpop shadows. I love the formula of CP’s shadows and these have great pigment and blend nicely.

George Michael (puppy) saw me put on makeup and was instantly excited thinking we were going out, lol.

I’m definitely feeling rusty when it comes to blogging but I continue to try to be consistent with it.

I hope this look inspires your own and if it does I’d love to see it! IG handle is asquard :).

Colourpop Makeup look

Here’s a quick makeup look using mostly Colourpop products.

Some of the products are no longer available so I figured I’d provide swatches in case anyone wanted to recreate the look or use similar colors!

At Forest Sight eyeshadow palette
ALT lippie pencil (as liner)
Best Intention Lippie Stix
Flynn lux liquid lipstick
Tick blush
Main Attraction highlighter

I appreciate that I’m able to use the lippie pencils as eyeliners because I would never use green as a lip color lol.

I love the blushes and highlighters and wish they were still available. I feel like I’ve used these products so much, and the highlighter is on my pan project, but I haven’t hit pan yet and barely made a dent!

I wish Colourpop had a bronzer I could use but I’ve found their bronzer to be too light, too orange or too stiff and hard to blend.

Let me know if you own any of these products!

CP At Forest Site and Morphe Jaclyn Hill Vol II look

Today I really wanted to use the Raw Beauty Kristi Colourpop collab but I also really wanted to use the second Morphe Jaclyn Hill collab. Fortunately, the two compliment each other!

I pulled crease colors from the Jaclyn Hill palette and the lower lash line color.f

From the Colourpop palette, I pulled darker colors to add depth to the look and the lid colors.

I wanted to blend Evergreen into West Coast to the out end but West Coast was too yellow gold for what I wanted to i layered Evergreen on top instead.

Other products used:

  • WetNWild Photofocus foundation dewy in Golden Beige. I usually go for matte but this has the perfect satin finish, not dewy at all!
  • Maybelline age rewind in 120 light. I used to really like this but lately it’s been feeling dry on my skin
  • Marc Jacobs Finish Line powder
  • Doll 10 Popstar Peach. I usually use this under powder but I forgot and figured I’d try it over. I didn’t notice any affect on my foundation but it made for a much brighter blush when I layered a powder over it. This was a Jen Phelps, on YouTube, recommendation and it’s hands down one of the best formulas. In not sure how I feel about the scent though. It’s a nice, yummy vanilla but it feels weird applying it to my face. I haven’t noticed it affecting my skin though
  • WetNWild Mellow Wine blush over to set (can skip two blushes but I don’t)
  • Smashbox Cali Contour palette for bronzer/contour and highlight. I like but don’t love. I want to love this palette so I keep it around
  • Urban Decay Horchata lipstick – the vice lipsticks were reformulated and the new ones are some of the most hydrating matte lipsticks I’ve tried
  • WetNWild Brow Sessive in Medium Brown. This is $1.99 on Target’s website and Amazon. I’ve really been loving this pencil, it’s soft and blends is perfect for my needs – which is just to fill in and brush out
  • Essence lash princess mascara – the purple one

Hope everyone has a happy Thursday

The Nightmare Before Christmas palette remix

When I found out Colourpop was coming out with a Nightmare Before Christmas palette I was stoked to see what they would put out. Not that it mattered because I was going to buy it anyway, haha.

I forgot to take a picture before remixing my palette but the bottom quad is less cohesive in real life and the entire left half required too much effort for me.

I ended up only replacing five colors of the original palette but I feel like this is more usable.

Frog’s Breath is such a pretty color, I applied it over glitter glue. I love the contrast between that and No Drama

How do you feel about “remixing” your palettes?
