Colourpop X Amanda Steele Weekend Warrior eyeshadow Palette : Review and Swatches

Hey beauties,

Today I am going to share with you all an eye shadow palette which was released some times back.,it is the result of collab between Colourpop and famous youtuber Amanda Steele and these are the first pressed eyeshadows from Colourpop. This palette was on Last call on Colourpop’s website on 50% discount.I really loved the colour scheme something not in my collection so I decided to pick it.I got it from an insta store .DSC03791

Price : 18 USD .I got it for  Rs 900 plus 100 shipping.

Product claims :

A highly pigmented formula that applies evenly and feels super velvety. This long-wearing shadow contains a unique combination of soft powders that adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly.DSC03785DSC03787

My thoughts on  Colourpop Weekend warrior eyeshadow palette

Packaging : It comes in a  purple colour cardboard packaging.The packaging is sturdy and good quality but I think it is way too big for four shadows only.It has a magnetic closure.I find the packaging chic and beautiful.It is sturdy to travel but too big for four shadows.

Shades : There are three Matte and one shimmer shade in the palette.The colours are almost cool toned.You can achieve sultry smokey looks from the palette.I love the fact it has three matte shades.The shade named “burnout” is my favourite from the palette.

The four shadows are from L to R:

Throttle :Beige with slight sheen

Harley : A matte grey with purple hints

Burnout : A matte dark teal

Chopper : A matte blackish purple

DSC03792Texture : The shadows are smooth and pigmented.They are easy to blend and buttery to touch.Even mattes are crazily pigmented.The shimmer is not too glittery but has a slight sheen to it.The darker colours have little fallout but it do not experience any kick back from the shadows.

Staying Power :The shadows have decent staying power.They stay upto 5 hours without primer.The primer can definitely increase the staying power.They do not crease also.

PROS

  • Beautiful colour scheme
  • Amazing pigmentation and blendablity
  • Decent staying power
  • Chic packaging
  • Affordable (For U.S residents)

CONS

  • Availabilty in India
  • Not for those who wear neutral looks
  • Not affordable for Indians unless you get it on a discount

      Final Thoughts

I think it is nice cool tone palette for those who love smokey looks.The colour scheme is fab and quality is top notch.The only problem is its availability in India.I think Amanda Steele has done a great job,it is difficult to find such matte shades easily.If you love the colours definitely go grab the palette.

Rating : 4.5/5

Look I created using the Palette (sorry for brows as always ;))

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips Bumble and Speed dial : Review & Swatches

Hello beautiful girls,

I mentioned in my Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip review  that I grab some stuff from colourpop during their free international shipping offer.I am a big fan of their Ultra matte lip and want to increase my collection so I purchased two more shades which is Bumble and Speed dial.You can read my Foxy mini set review here.Lets see how I find these babies.

Product Claims :

This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips leaving SUPER intense colour with a bold, ultra matte finish. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!

Shades :

Bumble : It is the best seller of Colourpop and most loved shade also.It is described as warm rose .I find it a warm terracota shade with more red in it.t is a univerally flaterring shade and a  a must have shade from Colourpop.

Speed dial : It is described as deepened peach.It is a part of Colourpop’s Just peachy collection and it is darkest among all.I find is a beautiful and vibrant peach color.It will suit all skin tones pretty well.

My thoughts about the product

These lipsticks come in white cardboard packaging with shade name written at the bottom.Lipsticks are packed in a transparent bottle with a silver cap.The doe foot applicator is perfect for easy and smooth application. The formula is light weight and applies like a dream.These are very pigmented and opaque.It is so light that you will forget that you are actually applying any thing .These settle to matte finish  after a second or two,so you have to be quick to correct mistakes,if any. Colorpop ultra matte is very much criticized among beauty bloggers for its drying and uncomfortable formula but I do not find these drying I think they have revised their formulation.These are super long wearing and transfer proof.They easily stays for about 6 to 8 hours.These do not crumble or fades from my lips.I do not find these drying but exfoliating and moisturising is a must for beautiful finish.Bumble is such a gorgeous shade that I want to wear it every single day.These survive meals but after very oily food touch up is a must.It is easy to reapply these lipsticks.These are super affordable after free shipping they are  among the cheap liquid lipstick that I own.However,with shipping it cost around 600 to 700 rupees.

Ratings  : 5/5

Conclusion : I love both the shades and formula is also very comfortable.I recommend both the shades.If you have not tried Colourpop yet what are you doing??Go grab some stuff .These are best and affordable liquid lipsticks in the market.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips Baracuda : Review & Swatches

Hello everyone,

Colourpop is celebrating its birthday month and if you follow Colourpop on their social media you must be knowing that the whole month they had amazing deals,new launches and free shipping.I also took advantage and ordered some stuff for myself too.They were having free International shipping and three liquid lipsticks for 12$ (original 18$).I went crazy and ordered some liquid lipsticks (reviews coming soon).I thought of trying their Ultra Satin formula so I ordered Baracuda from the range.Lets jump to the review quickly.

Product Claims :

 A creamy, bold lipstick with a satin finish. This formula has the same high percentage of pigments as an Ultra Matte Lip but contains emollient ingredients for added moisture, keeping lips looking fresh and feeling super comfortable.

Though this lipstick is super long-wearing, it is not completely kiss-proof and does transfer.

Price : 6 $ I got it for 4$ Rs 258

20170527_14132520170527_141402

Shade : It is described as warm deepened rose.I find it plumy brown color.It will suit all complexions.It is a beautiful colour.

Texture,finish and staying power : Ultra satin formula is liquid lipstick with a satin finish.The texture is neither too thick nor thin.The formula is very comfortable and does not feel drying at all.It transfer but the colour stays on lips for a long period of time.Transferring does not means that pigments are wiping off from the lips.It stays for 6 to 8 hours on my lips with less oily food.It survive snacks and drinks easily.It does not accentuate fine lines on lips.The formula is hydrating and luxurious.Those who are not habitual of wearing liquid lipsticks will love the formula because it feels like regular bullet lipstick.I like the formula and staying power is also quite decent.I found that the lipstick stain my lips badly and I used coconut oil to  wipe the colour completely.

Let us sum up the PROS and CONS :

PROS

  1. Comfortable formula
  2. Decent staying power
  3. Very affordable( If you grab these on sale or free shipping offer)
  4. Beautiful shades
  5. Moisturising and does not accentuate fine line.
