Colourpop Sandstone

Here’s another colourpop look!

The Sandstone palette may be just another neutral with a yellow but I still love it!

Available on Colourpop’s website as of 10/16/2020

This palette has 4 mattes, 7 mattes that have glitter particles and 7 metallics/shimmers.

I find that these particular mattes that have the glitter through them apply with more of that glitter on the lid that previous versions have. I’m ok with it so I actually still apply these as if they were just mattes.

  • MAC paint pot in soft ocre
  • Vortex in the crease to brow
  • Oasis in crease, keeping it lower
  • Canyon Loop on outer half of lid and into lid
  • Big Butte in outer third of lid and softly into crease
  • Templeton in the outer edge, in a V shape with a tighter brush. Then take a fluffier brush to blend it out and slightly blending it into the crease
  • Pueblo on lid – dip brush into color, spray with setting spray then apply to lid
  • Blend between Pueblo and outer lid colors
  • Lower lash – Canyon Loop, Big Butte and Templeton
  • Desert Sky in the inner corner, dip brush into the color, spray and apply
Brushes used, you can see the different densities

Colourpop Wild Nothing Collection

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.

Purchased items

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.
