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

Vortex in the crease to brow
Oasis in crease, keeping it lower

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

Desert Sky in the inner corner, dip brush into the color, spray and apply
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?
I received a lip trio from the brand Henné Organics to try and here are my first impressions
I like the sleek and simple packaging. All of the products close with a satisfying “click” that makes you feel like everything is staying tightly sealed and fresh.
The serum lid twists off and the serum is applied with a nice 24k plated metal roller ball. What I liked best about this is that it applied easily and did not get stuck as some of these types of products tend to do. It doesn’t have a heavy oily feeling and it has a berry scent that reminiscent of a berry candle. The scent is a bit strong for my liking but it fades away after application. This is meant to “help firm the lips and reduce the appearance of lip lines” but is not meant to replace a lip balm.
The balm was surprisingly soft, but that could have been because of the heat when it arrived, and also felt very nourishing and hydrating. It has a slight coconut scent, but it’s the real coconut scent, not the usual artificial almost piña colada scent.
The lip tint has the slightest color, the one I received is in Intregue, perfect for a light touch of a black cherry tint of color. It also has a nice coconut scent leaves the lips feeling hydrating and is available in four shades.
