Review/Swatches: ColourPop Lippies and Liners

ColourPop Swatches- villabeautifful

I've been raving about this brand for awhile now because their products are AMAZING and affordable.  A couple of posts back I shared some swatches of the Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows (view the post here) and a YouTube tutorial featuring the new fall color MOTH here.  Now I am excited to bring you their newest products added to their brand- Lippies (lipstick) and lip liners.  Do you have the problem of matching a lip liner to a lipstick? Well, I do! You find the perfect  purple shade but the lip liners out there are not purple enough (more red) or too dark almost black with a gray tint.  No more worrying about this, ColourPop has you covered.  They were so smart to have lipsticks with matching liners for no more guess work.  Of course you can mix and match to create your own colors but I really think this is great idea. 

Below you will find pictures of the colors that I received from ColourPop along with a review/swatch video that I posted on my YouTube Channel.  Hope you guys like!

Please let me know there are any swatches you would like me to do for future videos and blog posts. :)

Hair and Makeup Addiction Brushes

I have been getting a lot of questions about the brushes that I use for some of my looks- here it is! This complete set is from Hair and Makeup Addiction- the brushes are synthetic hair with bamboo wood handles plus Vegan friendly!   Visit the site for other sets if you feel you don't need a complete one like this- there's sets for eyes, face and individual.  So many uses for each one that you really don't need any other brushes.  I know, at times,  a big set like this can get confusing or overwhelming but don't you worry! You will find the name of the brush labeled on the handle- the names relate to the the purpose of the brush.  Of course, you don't have to use it for the particular purpose/feature but hey at least you won't be left in a dark.  I will do a more in-depth review of these brushes and how I like to use them.

MOTD: Colour Pop So Quiche Shadow


I've been a HUGE fan of the Colourpop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadows (click here COLOURPOP to read/view all the looks I've created with the cream shadows and for swatches/review).  I was recently sent the new fall colors and they are freaken gorgeous!!! Don't worry I'll have swatches for you very soon!

I really love the sparkly goodness in these shadows, the colors they came in, the ease of wear and of course the price point- $5!!

Here is how I created this look:

  • MAC Cosmetics Saddle Eye Shadow (Crease), Carbon (outer corner), Seedy Pearl (highlight) and White Frost  (inner tear duct highlight).
  • Colour Pop Cosmetics So Quiche Super Shock Shadow on the lid and smudged on the lower lashline.  I used my finger to apply the shadow because I find that your fingers will be the best tools for application especially with the cream consistency.  Before you begin make sure your fingers are nice and clean ;). Instead of using a blending the product back and forth use a patting motion with your finger- this will create a more pigmented base resulting in super impact color and shine!
  • NYX cosmetics Gel Liner and Smudger in Betty
  • House of Lashes Siren Lashes

Before you go I wanted to show you how amazing these lashes are!! One of my ultimate favorite styles.  Remind me of MAC #35 lashes. 




MOTD: Smokey Gold

Smokey Gold

I wanted to share this smokey gold eye look with all of you since I haven't posted a MOTD lately.  This photo was taken with my husband's Iphone, can you believe that? I am always in awe of the awesome pictures I get with a camera phone.  With the new Iphone 6 coming out- I can't wait to see how good my close-up pictures will turn out. 

I always have a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows.  You can tell when I have a good eyebrow day or a bad ( I usually don't post a MOTD if I feel my brows are not up to par).  I was having a very good eyebrow day in this picture.  I will definitely need to update my brow routine video! In case you are wondering what I use for my brows I define my brows with the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Ebony with a thin slanted angle brush.  Enough with my brows lets get down with the details of the look.

Products used:

  • Motives Cosmetics Mavens Element Eye Shadow Palette
  •  Colour Pop Cosmetics  Super Shock Shadow Get Lucky on the lid
  • House of Lashes Noir Fairy Lashes
  • Violet Voss  glitter in Goldie.
