Colourpop Ultra Glossy lip Moon Child : Review and swatches

hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Colourpop again but this time I will talk about their gloss formula.This is my first ultra gloss purchase from Colourpop.I have not purchased any gloss since a long time and glosses are making a comeback so I thought why not try this.It is a collab product by Kathleen Lights.She is my favourite and her collabs are always talk of the town.So without much rambling lets begins .

Product claims :

High shine gloss with medium-coverage, crème finish in a moisturizing and non-sticky, comfortable formula.

Stay wild in this pinky nude with gold glitter

 

 

Price : 6 USD .I got it for 550 plus shipping

My thoughts about Colourpop Ultra Gloss Moonchild

It comes in  a pale pink outer cardboard packaging .It has  stars printed all over the box which looks stunning.The actual product comes in a transparent bottle with golden cap with star printed at the neck of the bottle.It has kathleen’s name also written at the outer as well as inner packaging. Moonchild is pale pink gloss and it has golden specks of glitter.The shade is too pale for me if applied alone but with a nude lip liner underneath it works fine.It is a perfect nude for very fair to fair skin girls.Medium to deep skins can make it work by applying a nude liner of their choice.The formula is light weight and non sticky .The glitters are smooth and non gritty.The pigmentation is decent for a nude gloss.It stays for 2 hours or so then it needs to be reapplied.The staying power is decent as it is a gloss and touch ups the always needed.It is a beautiful nude for fair girls but I will not recommend it to Indian medium skin girls like me.

Overall I enjoy the formula of the gloss and it is a nice product to have.Kathleen nailed it with the colour ,formula and packaging.

Thanks for reading

Colourpop Ultra Satin Calypso :Review and swatches

Hey everyone.

Today I have another review for you all from Colourpop. Colourpop is my favourite brands currently.The quality ,price and diversity of product always attract me to try more and more from the brand.I love ultra matte and ultra satin liquid lipsticks very much,can’t get enough :).I purchased a bunch of products from colourpop. but today the topic of discussion is Ultra satin lips in the shade Calypso.Lets jump to the review.

DSC04683

 

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 : 6.50 USD

DSC04679

 

Shade : Calypso is a muted pink.It is a pinky nude for my skin.Perfect to be paired with smokey eyes or a natural look.It will look good on a variety of skintones.

DSC04681

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.It does not stain my lips . I use coconut oil to  wipe the colour completely.

DSC04680

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.

CONS

  1. It is not transfer proof
  2. Availabilty in India.

Ratings :5/5

I absolutely love the color and the formula .These stays for a long period of time so no need to reapply.I totally recommend this.

Colourpop Gone wishing mini size kit review

hey everyone,
Today I have another lip product review .It is again from Colourpop.I have quite a few colourpop shades and I absolutely love Colourpop’s liquid lipsticks.They always keep launching new stuff.So,this kit was on sale so it grabbed my attention.It has all brand new shades from their collection.I could not resist myself and ordered this one.Read on more to know more about the product.
DSC04650DSC04651
Product claims :

This Mini Ultra Matte Lip Kit will keep your look so fresh for the season. Including brand new mattes from our Holiday launch, and two exclusive shades to the kit: First Position and Needle & Thread, there’s a kiss-proof lip for any occasion!

 DSC04624

Price :18 USD
Shades :
Souffle : A vibrant berry color.Very similar to more better but slightly lighter
Take a pixie : A dusty beige.Beautiful warm nude.Love it
First position : A true red
Needle & Thread : A toned down pink
Arabesque : A deep maroon
DSC04626.JPG
My thoughts about the product :

It comes in a purple cardboard packaging.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.It is so light that you will forget that you are actually applying any thing . Colourpop ultra matte are improving day by day.They have fixed their formula .It is more comfortable.These are super long wearing and transfer proof.They easily stays for about 6 to 8 hours . I always choose these lippies for a wedding or some event where I dont want to reapply my lipstick every now and then.I think the mini set has all the shades from nude to deep maroon ,red and pink.I love the colour take a pixie and souffle.They will look beautiful on all skin tone.Arabesque is  a perfect fall colour.It is very important to moisturise and exfoliate lips before applying these as they can accentuate flaked lips and look ugly.

DSC04653
From Lto R souffle,needle and thread,take a pixie,arabesque and first position

 

The only downside of the product is that it can not be reapplied easily.You have to wipe off completely to reapply the color.This is not a problem because  it rarely needs reapplication.Some of you may find the mini size too small.But it is fine to keep them for special occasion.It is better to have small size than a full size which will take forever to finish and also expires.

 

Rating 4.5/5
I really enjoy the kits .The new shades are interesting and beautiful to play with.I highly recommend this kit.You can grab it during sale for extra savings.
Thanks for reading.

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

DSC03788DSC03789

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 ;))

Do you want me to post the breakdown of this look?Lemme know in the comment section below .

Thank you for reading.

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!

20170527_141656

Price : 6 USD .I got for 4 USD. Rs 258 each.

2017-05-27 14.31.35

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.

20170527_14185220170527_1418342017-05-27 14.32.48

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.
