Let me introduce you to these life-changing products. I’m sure after you place an order of your own, you’ll be just as in love as I am with these lippie stix and shadows! Alright, where do I even begin ?! So, of course I’ve been hearing LOADS about the brand, Colourpop, on Instagram, Youtube & on this makeup app called MakeupSocial. It’s all the rage right now! Beauty gurus already have collabs with them & MUAs are raving about the products. So of course, I placed an order & let me tell you – it’s the first of MANY. The best part is that everything is $5, nothing more, nothing less. So can easily tally up your cart before purchasing so you know how big of a hole you want to make in your wallet. Did I mention they’re cruelty free?! Even better!
I ordered 3 lippie stix & 4 eyeshadows. My favorite part of their packages is the cute handwritten note. I’ve seen loads of messages in various girls hauls & they’re always something witty or funny!
Eyeshadows from L-R: Meow, Shameless, Play, Cricket || Lippie Stix: Dalia, Lumiere
* Eyeshadows are swatched on top of MUAD Cosmetics‘ eye base. *
When I tell you that both products literally feel like clouds, I’m not lying. The eyeshadows are incredibly soft; so soft that I feel like if I press my finger on the product too hard that I’m going to harm it (as if it’s a living thing!) They’re some of the softest eyeshadows I’ve EVER encountered & I love it! I’m sure they’re going to blend like a DREAM! Now don’t get me started on the Lippie Stix! Can you say, smooth like butter ?! Hello! These lipsticks are INCREDIBLY creamy & glide on really well! (Just be gentle & not an idiot like me who snapped off the top half of Dalia while swatching, bc ya know, I’m clearly not gentle enough |sad face|) I know I said I ordered three but yet there’s only two pictured…yeah, that’s because I ordered one in the shade Pitch for my mother and as soon as she swatched it she took it. So, it’s no longer in my possession lmao. She loved it so much that she told me to order her 2 more as backups (but I’ll surprise her bc I’m a nice daughter and order her at least 4). My swatches don’t do these shadows justice so don’t judge based on my photo with horrible quality. I’m telling you, it’s perfect.
I can’t wait to use these products in upcoming tutorials! I’m back & ready to roll out these posts like hot cakes! If you’d like to see anything specifically posted on my blog pleaaaase leave me a comment (or email) and tell me!

When I went to see Bruno Mars in July (which was absolutely AMAZING!!!) I borrowed a pink top from my friend, & wanted a matching pink gloss. I ran to Rite Aid before getting ready to see if I could find just that – boy was I wrong. I didn’t have much time to get ready, so I just grabbed the first pink gloss I found. I don’t even remember the brand, the shade, nothing. I hated it! I gave the lipgloss away to my aunt. It did not give me any color payoff whatsoever! It was super translucent, but looked really opaque in the tube – oh the joys of makeup.
I ended up wearing my Lime Crime Velvetine (in the shade Red Velvet) which is my absolute FAVE red lipstick ever. I figured, the shirt is dark enough, I could get away with wearing a red lip with the pink top. Then of course, days later, I find the perfect pink lipgloss. It’s Rimmel London’s Stay Glossy in the shade 360 Fuschia Fever. You’ll see in the swatch, the pigment is amazing! It claims to last up to 6 hours & add shine. I haven’t worn it for long enough to know if it has that staying power, but it DEFINITELY adds shine & color!
Anyone own this gloss? If not, you MUST!
Would you like to see a post on my Bruno Mars Concert Makeup? It was a glittery eye with dark crease (using the Electric Palette) Let me know in the cmnts! x
In these posts, I’ll review products that I’ve purchased and tell you whether or not I liked them! I’ll rate the product as hearts, ♥ out of 5.
(Wearing Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in the shade Ebony)
- Results: ♥♥♥♥♥/5 .. FAB!!!!
- Pros: Long wearing, Minimal product for excellent results, Super creamy, Glides on easily, $18 but will last you a lifetime because a little goes a LONG. Best brow product I’ve ever tried.
- Cons: The only con I could think of when reviewing this product is that it’s a little tricky to get the hang of when you first get it. Once you learn to just lightly dab your brush into the product, remove excess on lid, and THEN use it, you’ll be SET.
I made a comment once (one time out of many), that I hated my brows and my friend told me, “Get dipbrow pomade and let Jesus take the wheel.” I thought she was being crazy, but BOY was she right. Once I got my brows reshaped I immediately started using this product, and now I’m hooked! Brows are one of my favorite parts of getting ready! xo
