Natasha Denona Metropolis Look

Yesterday I was watching Alicia Archer (kinkysweat on YouTube) do two looks comparing the Natasha Denona Bronze and Metropolis palettes and she inspired me to use the Metropolis palette.


I love the way Symbol, Shield and Imperia blended into each other.
I used Rhizome in the crease to blend the colors up

  • Natasha Denona Sculpt and Glow palette

Speaking it into existence

I’m finally going for it! My goal is to make the Colourpop PR team!

First off, it’s hands down my favorite brand. I wound say 75-80% of what I own is Colourpop.

I love their products, believe they are great quality and most importantly (to me) they’re based and manufacture out of California.

I’ve learned so much in the time I’ve spent growing my social media. I’ve learned the confidence makeup can give a person, I’ve learned how makeup can bring strangers together and I’ve learned makeup can bring out so much in someone. I believe that Colourpop is a company that also understands and emphasizes this which is why I would love an opportunity to represent them.

I’m keeping all my fingers crossed and will continue to support the brand regardless, but wish me luck and hopefully this is a goal I can achieve this year!

Colourpop Disney Midnight Masquerade Collection

I have to start by saying how surprised I am to have gotten my order so quickly!

Being such a Disney fan I knew I was going to get this as collection as soon as they announced it so I placed my order first thing Monday morning and by Tuesday evening (today) it was here!

I didn’t purchase the eyeshadow palette because I needed something to ask for as a Christmas present, lol!

The packaging on these is so beautiful.

S

ince they just arrived I haven’t had a chance to try everything so I’ll only be reviewing the Zero to Hero collection.

The highlight is a beautiful sheer Lilac highlight with a small amount of glitter. It’s a pressed highlight and does feel and look a little more powdery than their super shock highlights. I wasn’t able to get a good picture of a swatch but here are the swatches from Colourpop’s website

The collection includes highlights and blushes. If the blushes are anything like Colourpop’s typical pressed blush I know I’ll love them.

I was intrigued by the liquid lipsticks given that they’re a new “Lux Liquid Lipstick” formula

This is Wonderboy

I love the color and the feel is so soft! It feels almost moussey? It glides on very smoothly and pigmented. It has a very, very light smell, almost vanilla but it’s so light I might be making that up.

It isn’t transfer proof and I can tell I’ll have to reapply throughout the day but the formula feels light enough I don’t think I’ll mind.

Overall I would highly recommend the lux liquid lipstick and I’ll have to use the highlighters and blushes to see if I recommend them.

If you’re a Disney nut like me though, you’ll probably get the collection too!

Posting

I haven’t been posting because I’ve been struggling with how/what to post.

I want this to be a place I can go more in depth with reviews and products but if I forget something on a day then I don’t post.

So here are my looks for the last couple of days.

I’m in the middle of moving and am limited to what makeup I have, which I’m kind of liking lol.

Tarte Pro palette for the eyes

Colourpop Main Squeeze on the eyes

Natasha Denona Biba palette for the eyes

I started June makeup free so this has been it for June!

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 ๐Ÿ˜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.

Misunderstood II

It’s baseball opening day and it’s my first time attending the game!!!

Of course I needed the perfect game day makeup

Cr: Temptalia

1. All over crease blended up to brow

2. In crease to deepen color. Kept rounded in crease and not blended out at the outer corner

3. All over lid, kept rounded with lid shape

4. Super shock shadow at the center of lids for dimension

2. All across lower lash line

3. Blended at lower lash line starting at the outer corner and lighting blending across

Colourpop Gloss

I’m not much of a gloss girl but I am brand loyal so when Colourpop released “plumping” gloss I immediately wanted to give them a try.

I’ve been using the gloss since Friday now and here are the pros:

  • Not sticky
  • Very hydrating
  • Minth, fresh feeling
Princess Cut gloss

https://colourpop.com/products/princess-cut

The downside is that the gloss is not very plumping at all.

Over all I enjoy the gloss and thing the $7 ea or 2/$12 is a good value.
