Rumor has it that Colourpop is coming out with a concealer and/or foundation. The affordable brand needs that, it’d be amaze.

Let’s Talk About The Weekend And New Makeup

Good morning everyone! The Oscars are Sunday night and you KNOW I’ll be doing a best and worst dressed. I can’t wait. I’ll probably have a page on each because I plan on going deep.

I’ve got some more dupe posts up my sleeve-some Kylie lip kit Dupes are coming up-as well as a ton more color dupes.

I’m looking for a new-ish foundation and I found one but you can only get it in the UK. It’s called Bourjois, and I could get it on Amazon but it’s way more pricey. Plus I want to have something that no one else around me has-because, shallow.  I’m definitely getting some dupes as well, but this is the palette coming home to me next week:


The Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette-its SO PRETTY!! And it’s going to look perfect in my makeup box. And only 26$.

I love this, it’s intriguing to me, but I’ve got no idea where or how I’d wear it:


Too Faced Unicorn Tears Lipstick-here it is swatched:


I love it but not sure where I’d ever wear it. I’m sure I could wear it over a pink color?

And Colourpop came out with Highlighter Trios which are coming home to me next week a well. I LOVE their highlighters, y’all know that. There are 3 sets for different skin shades: 

The Waffle Trio:

The colors are: Scrumptious which is a pearlized baby pink, Glazed, a pearlized Ivory Gold, and Flexitarian (my fave) which is a pearlized white champagne. This is best for lighter skin tones.

The Cannoli Trio


We’ve got Frosted:  Satin soft true gold. Whipped is a tie-dye warm silvery gold and Wisp which is a pearlized golden champagne with gold pearls. For medium skin tones

The Shortcake Trio


This trio is recommended for deeper skin tones. The shades are Soft Serve, a true satin copper; Iced, a tie dyed rosy gold, and Candyman-a pearlized metallic rich gold.

They run for 22$, which in true Colourpop tradition is fairly inexpensive.

Talk soon, Lovelies

Makeup Score

I’ve been wanting to buy from Beauty Bakerie for months and finally bit the bullet. Well-hubs did. This is what’s coming:


I had a coupon code so that eased the pain a tiny bit-plus Valentines Day is upon us so hubs told me to shop. Far be it for me to refuse.

I hit Morphe again as well:


I’ve been wanting to try Jeffree Star’s lipstick for a while as well, I’ve heard good things. Y’all know I’ll let you know.

I’ve hidden my shoe addiction from you guys fairly well-I’ve mentioned it here and there but for the most part kept it close to the vest. Not anymore!




I’m happy Valentines Day is soon and happy that hubs loves me-for way more reasons than he buys me makeup and shoes.

I’ll review all of the makeup when it gets here, and Hannah is going to send pics of her Colourpop prizes when they find their way into her mailbox 😘

Talk soon, Lovelies

Colourpop 

http://www.colourpop.com

So anyone can peruse the colors they offer:



As you may or may not know, they have 4 finishes: Ultra Matte, Ultra Satin, Ultra Metallic,  and Ultra Gloss. I’ve got mattes, a gloss and 2 metallics. I love them all especially the metallics. It’s not a matte finish in the sense that it’s not long-wearing like the mattes but they go on so smoothly and they’re so pretty. Like I mentioned before, you can always put a gloss on over the matte, it works beautifully.

I’m excited for the giveaway-the winner will have the product shipped to them directly from Colourpop-the order will be placed once the winner selects their shades. 

Talk soon, Lovelies!

Shiny Things, Part 2


This Super Shock Cheek highlighter by Colourpop is a new shade for me:


It’s called Over the Moon-it’s opalescent with pink and lavender glitter tones. It’s not very buildable, FYI. 

These opalescents from Colourpop are limited edition, I believe they came out in October so not sure how much longer they’ll be around.


Not overly in love with this one. You do better to apply with fingertips, it’s a waste with a brush. Maybe if you use it WITH something else? To build/mix with another highlighter? I’ll give it a whirl.

Some dupes are:

MAC soft frost, Anastasia Purple Horseshoe, and Makeup Geek Celestial. 

Talk soon, Lovelies

Shiny Things Part 1


Ok guys-now for the highlighters. I LOVE highlighters. Probably too much. But they’re everything awesome-shimmer, shiny, and pretty-what’s not to love, really. 

Colourpop’s pearlized highlighters are a little more expensive than their liquid lipsticks at 8$ but the quality is just as amazing. They are cream-based so the consistency is soft and smooth, not powdery like an eyeshadow but almost like a creme blush. 

The first one I bought is called “Flexitarian”. I first bought this shade back in November, I love it so much I got it again. It’s a warm beige with a metallic finish-in my experience it’s best applied with fingertips. You can build with this from just light effect to dramatic shine. Good pigmentation:


That’s my old one-Colourpop didn’t send me a ratty highlighter 😉


Hee hee excuse the tattoos and I can still see the swatch remnants from the lipstick on my arm-anyway-this is one of my favorites because you can build and make it as dramatic or light as you’d like. 

Dupes for Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Flexitarian are:

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in TUTU

Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter in Warm Glow

Next review coming shortly!

Talk soon Lovelies

Colourpop Lippies!!


I’m so excited to get these because I was overdue for some new Colourpop in my life. They have an Ultra Matte Lip, Ultra Satin Lip, Ultra Metallic Lip, and Ultra Glossy Lip in their line,  I purchased 2 Ultra Metallics and 1 Ultra Matte. The Matte is from their Hello Kitty collab, which came out in November 2016, more on that later. 

First up is a metallic called Mug Shot:

It’s a cranberry with a great metallic effect. It’s not gooey or gloppy and goes on super smoothly.


You’d honestly only need one coat. I’m loving this shade.

Next up is another metallic, this one called J.I.C. or Just In Case. It’s a warm beige, actually almost a rose gold with a metallic finish.


You can kind of see the metallic tones in this photo-it’s a really pretty shade. Also not gooey or gloppy-nice consistency.


Again, with this one you’ll probably only need one coat. It’s got a lot of gold glitter ✨ in it which I noticed when taking it off. That’s not a bad thing at all-

Last but absolutely not least, I bought a Matte lipstick from the Hello Kitty line in Ribbon:


It’s a blue-based deep red, and I love. The consistency of this one is a little runnier than I’m used to-you might have to scrape the excess off on the side of the lippies container, it’s not a deal breaker nor does it affect my love of the product, it just is.


It’s a beautiful, rich, deep red-I’d be curious to know what its dupes are.  

Colourpop liquid lippies are super affordable at 6$ a pop. Rumor has it that it’s the same formula as the Kylie lip kits (ALLEGEDLY) which will hurt your wallet for around 30$. I bought my daughter a few of the Kylie lip kits and in my opinion the only difference between Colourpop and hers is about 25$ and some fragrance. Kylie’s smell like cupcakes or something, couldn’t put my finger on it. 

Colourpop is long lasting, in fact I’ve had to use makeup remover to get it off-it’s not just wiping off, at least the Matte formulas. They are so affordable and a Big Bang for your buck. 

Highlighters up next!

Talk soon, Lovelies

Retail Therapy and Some Good Sh*t Coming Soon!

It was a dismal, dreary day here yesterday-quite perfect for online shopping, actually. Plus my email inbox was being flooded with “LAST CHANCE!!!!” sale emails-what’s a girl to do? Besides buy into the hype that it’s really my LAST CHANCE.

I hit Colourpop and walked away 

with these:


I have the Flexitarian highlighter and LOVE it. So I got a backup, and decided to try “Over the Moon”. I’m excited about the matte liquid lipstick in “Ribbon”-it looks like the red I’ve been searching for. The others are some metallics that I’m looking forward to. 

Second:

Morphe 35F palette. It’s got 7 matte colors and the rest are shimmers. It’ll be my 3rd Morphe palette and I still can’t get enough. I also sent one to my daughter. Sharing the joy, yanno? 

Next, the gifts that keep in giving, and I owe this one to you Lovelies for filling me in on subscription boxes:


And:


I also ordered my daughter the Ipsy monthly subscription. She’s my inspiration for all that’s good, y’all.

Someone had mentioned possibly setting up a makeup swap/subscription box swap. I think it’s a great idea-not sure how to facilitate that, if anyone has ideas then message me. 

Thank you guys, from the bottom of my heart for all of your kindness, support, and having my back. I can’t express my gratitude enough. 

BUT! Next month, how about I start doing some giveaways?? No purchase necessary, HATERS- but I’ve got some things in the works and you will all benefit. It’ll be nice to have some makeup giveaways (that means free, it means I get nothing out of it but the excitement of giving away some free shit) and keep building, moving forward! ❤💜❤

Talk soon, Lovelies
