Stick -ColourPop -No Filter Foundation Stix

on 1/16/2019 7:08:00 AM


This is a so-so foundation stick that didn't really perform to my expectations. I bought this as part of a deal for $20, pick a foundation, concealer and powder. I love the powder, love the concealer except for a few issues, but this, this I wouldn't buy again. I like stick foundations, although it seems to be tricky to find a good one. I'm not sure why. I found this to be pretty dry. Right away on application, it didn't feel smooth going on, kind of had a "drag" to it. The coverage is ok, you can get a good medium with it, but also can sheer it out with a damp beauty blender. I couldn't really find a great application method with this, I tried several to try and make it look better. Different brushes, sponges, fingers. It settled into my pores and left me with the dreaded white dots, even with a few different primers I tried. It looked kind of dry on initial application, but throughout the day it looked even dryer. I tried three different setting sprays with it. (My skin is combination; fairly normal these days, with a bit of an oily t-zone, and dry under the eyes.) I think it might be ok for a concealer (not for under-eyes, but maybe on other areas of the face, maybe with a powder foundation over it?) but basically, it's not worth the work to try and make this work. Because then I get to work and throughout the day I look in the mirror and wish I hadn't worn it.

I have just recently tried ColourPop. I am so in love with their Lux Lipsticks, and I love the palette that I bought. The setting powder is great, too. But this is a pass for me.

Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Give It To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette

on 1/13/2019 11:55:00 PM


This has got to be my most-used palette. I have brown eyes with a weird gold undertone and fair-light olive skin. My fondness for rose, burgundy, bronze and orange eyeshadows has been as almost as long-standing as my love for mascara. Thus, this palette was a dream come true. I am a fan of Colourpop's reliable quality for an extremely reasonable price point. This palette is well worth the cost and then some. I would out it against the popular offerings from TooFaced, Anastasia, and Urban Decay. PLUS: it's a powder-based product MADE IN THE USA! The metallics wear and wear with minimal fallout. The mattes go on soft and blendable. You won't be disappointed.

Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Super Shock Eyeshadow - Hanky-Panky

on 1/13/2019 7:01:00 PM


Not too many people probably get as excited as I do over a beige eyeshadow, but I adore Hanky-Panky.
It's a truly neutral light-to-medium beige that's matte but not dry or chalky.
It smooths on with a finger or a firm flat shading brush, and yields the perfect "naturally shadowed" look that's ideal for a polished put-together look. Hanky-Panky wears admirably on my extremely oily lids, though primer + powder are essential underneath for all-day wear.
A reasonably priced, high-quality, cruelty-free shadow in a surprisingly hard-to-find neutral color?

An added bonus is the generous amount of product you get for a mere $5.00 USD.
Here are some size comparisons:

Colourpop = 2.1 g.0.07 oz.
MAC = 1.5 g./0.05 oz.
NYX = 1.5 g., 0.05 oz.
Stila = 2.6 g., 0.09 oz.

Lip Gloss -ColourPop -x Disney Ultra Glossy Lip - Bibbidi

on 1/13/2019 7:00:00 PM


I bought The Cinderella Collection, which is $18. The gloss separately is $6. It is described on the website as a clear gloss with a golden sheen. The gloss part is fine; I would certainly buy more glosses in this formula. The problem is that it’s basically a clear gloss. I cannot detect any “golden sheen” anywhere. Even in the pictures on ColourPop’s website, at best, you can maybe see tiny gold flecks on the models’s lips, and this is in a close up shot of the lips. Don’t expect anything out of this other than glossy lips.

Lipstick -ColourPop -x Disney Designer Collection Creme Lux Lipstick - Cinderella

on 1/13/2019 6:53:00 PM


I bought The Cinderella Collection, which is $18. The Cinderella creme lux lipstick separately is $7. It is described on the website as a blue pink hydrating lipstick. The color on me is true to how it looks on the website. It is lightly hydrating and lasts quite a few hours. It is full coverage. It did not bleed in my lip lines or crumble. Highly recommend if the color works for you.
