Huge Colourpop Haul!!

If there is one brand that I just cannot resist browsing (and ordering) from, it has to be Colourpop. A while back Colourpop was having free international shipping, which in other words means I couldn't help myself. Of course, I had to share everything I got because I'm SO excited!

I picked up a little bit of everything, and I'm really happy with everything. One of the Super Shock Shadows I ordered came in damaged unfortunately, but thankfully the texture of the shadows makes it really easy to just press it nicely back into the pot. Not the prettiest, but still works just as well.
Anyway, Here's what I picked up!:

Lips: 
Ultra Satin Lip in Chandelier
Ultra Matte Lip in Donut
Ultra Satin Lip in Cozy
Ultra Satin Lip in Bare Necessities
Ultra Glossy Lip in My Jam
Ultra Glossy Lip in Bestie (not pictured, I keep that one in my purse!)
I also got Mini Ultra Satin Lips in the shades Frick N' Frack, Prim, Dopey and Strip. Really excited to play around with these ones since they're not necessarily shades I would gravitate towards.

Eyes: 
I finally picked up some of their pressed eyeshadows which I've been very curious about since they launched. I got the shades:
Double Date (Metallic Lavender)
Pinky Promise (Metallic Wine)
Come and Get It (Duochrome Rose with Gold Shift)
I also picked up the Heavy Hitter palette which features the shades:
Full Zip (Matte Ivory)
Ringer (Metallic Champagne)
Side Tracked (Matte Terracotta with gold flecks)
Top Notch (Matte Terracotta Brown)
I restrained myself into only buying 3 Super Shock Shadows this time (which I currently am regretting, but I'm sure my wallet is relieved). I picked up the shades:
Porter (burgundy with gold glitter)
Static (deep satin burgundy)
White Rabbit (pink copper)
(Note: Porter and Static are being discontinued, so you can pick them up on discount right now before they run out!)
I also picked up one of their highlighters in 'Wisp' which I am EXTREMELY excited to try out. It is so stunning in swatches!

And thats everything! I will likely be swatching everything in the upcoming weeks, but please comment below which ones you'd like to see swatched first!

Happy Friday everyone!

MAY FAVOURITES!

Hi everyone! Long time no talk 😋😋 and happy June!
I'm back from my brief exam and study hiatus, and now that I've officially graduated I'm so excited to have more time to be writing on here about my monthly favourites! There aren't too many, since I didn't really try out too many new things, but I rediscovered a lot of old loves within my collection that I ended up using all month long.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in 'KathleenLights' 
Every single time I wear this eyeshadow, I will guaranteed receive compliments on it. It is hands down the most beautiful true gold shade that is just so flattering on the eyelids. I'm so obsessed with it.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Prague' 
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Nyx's soft matte lip creams, so obviously I had to add to my collection. Prague is a super pretty deep mauvy pink colour and I'm so in love with it.
Milani Rose Blush in 'Romantic Rose'
This blush, besides being 1) super affordable and 2) so pretty, is seriously the most pigmented and flattering blush I've worn in a really long time. I'm so glad I picked this up because I've been using it every day since April and I just can't get enough.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Opal'
I had forgotten just how much I loved this highlight until I started re-using it this past month. It's just so intense and just so GOOD. It applies so flawlessly on the high points of the face and is so eye catching without looking unnatural.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Shadow in 'Dusty Rose'
This single shadow for a while now has been my go-to eyeshadow to wear on my minimal makeup days. I just slap it on, all over the lid, or in the crease paired with any pink or purple toned shadows. It's a super flattering colour for my skin tone.
Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Velours in 'Noble Nude' 
I'm so obsessed with the formula of these lipsticks. They are honestly unlike everything I've ever felt. They are the most matte lipsticks I've ever used, and literally feel like velvet when you put them on your lips. You definitely need to exfoliate your lips well before using them but it's so worth it.

Let me know what you loved this past month!

The BEST Lip Colours for Spring!

When it comes to seasonal makeup, my two favourites would have to be Spring and Autumn, As much as I love my vampy berry lips when the cooler months roll around, I love all the pretty colours I get to play around with in the spring time.

Here are the lipsticks that are pretty much always in my rotation all Spring long:
From Left to Right:

  • Wet N' Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Nudist Peach' 
  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in 'Baci' 
  • Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Instigator' 
  • Essence Lipstick in 'Coral Calling' 
  • Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 'Vibrant Mandarin' 
  • Nyx Lipstick in 'Vitamin' 
  • Nyx Lipstick in 'Blush' 
Let me know if you'd like lip swatches or entire makeup looks created with any of these! I'm so excited that it's finally spring!

Colourpop 'Weenie' Super Shock Shadow (SWATCH)

This eyeshadow is so stunning on the eyes, you really have to try it to understand what I mean. I think I might have worn it every day for a week all over my lids with just a darker brown buffed into the crease. It's just so gorgeous.
Colourpop's website describes this one as a "true rose gold" but it falls a bit more coppery on my skin tone I think. Its still such a pretty, satiny colour that looks even prettier when the light hits it. Definitely a must have if you're planning on ordering some shadows from Colourpop!

Colourpop 'KathleenLights' Super Shock Shadow Swatches

As promised, I'll be posting swatches of all the things I ordered from Colourpop all through this week. I had to post this one first though because, I mean, just look at it. Is that not the most gorgeous golden colour you've ever seen? I kind of just want to slather it all over my eyelids.
It applies super pigmented (one swipe is all you need) and the colour is honestly breathtaking. I own a lot of bronze, gold and neutral colours, but I feel as though I don't have a straight up pure gold colour like this, so I'm very excited to try it!

COLOURPOP HAUL!

 A couple of weeks ago, I made (believe it or not), my very first Colourpop order. I put off ordering from Colourpop since International shipping can be pretty pricey, but I couldn't put it off any longer so I finally decided to pick up some things.
 I wanted to try a little bit of everything I've heard a lot of hype around, so I picked up some of the Super Shock shadows, a matte liquid lipstick and a lippie stick. (Of course, with my luck, their pressed single shadows were released 2 days after I placed this order... so you know what my next order is going to be!)
 The shadows I picked up were Weenie, KathleenLights, Sequin and Eye Candy. The liquid lipstick is in the shade 'Instigator' and the lippie stick is in 'Topanga'.
 I put off ordering these for far too long, so I am incredibly excited to try them out and see what the hype is all about. They all look so incredibly pretty and they've got me so inspired to create gorgeous looks.
I'll be posting swatches of everything I ordered this week! Stay tuned ;)

Have a lovely week everyone!
