Product spotlight: ColourPop Cosmetics

 So as many of you can tell from reading my blog I love to try out new products, especially if they are affordable and today's post is no different!!

I had heard and seen some stuff about colourpop for a few months and it was a line that I hadn't tried before, so a few weeks ago I decided to buy some stuff.

The products range from 5-20 dollars and if you sign up for their newsletter you will automatically get 5 dollars off your first purchase!!

I bought 3 of their lipsticks, an eyeliner and eyeshadow...

 Satin lipstick in the color Brooklyn ($6)

This is a hot pink tone with a satin finish

 A muted pinky/muave tone

They also came out with a new formula for their lippie sticks called Matte X ($5)

 Chateau which a deep red/wine color


Super shock eyeshadow in envy ($5) 

Violet purple with cooper and purple sparkles

I rate each:

 Ultra satin- 7/10  
-Super pigmented
-Not drying
-Glides on easy
-Long lasting
-Not smudge proof

Ultra Matte- 8.5/10
-Super pigmented
-Smudge proof
-Dries instantly
-Can get flaky Tip: mosturize lips before applying
-can feather 

Lippie stick- 6/10

-Great color pay off 
-Not drying
 -Not smudge proof
-Can feather over time

Eyeliner- 9/10

-Glides on easily
 -Doesn't move
-Does need a few applications to get good color pay off

Super shock shadow- 9/10

-Very pigmented
-Lasts all day
-Glitter does scatter

The picture on the left is when I just put on the look (líp satin, eyeliner, eyeshadow) right- 5 hours after heat, food and drink

As you can tell the eyeliner and eyeshadow did stay on pretty well. There is still a faint stain on the lips so it needs reapplying (which is a little annoying because I love the color) 

Overall I was impressed with how pigmented these products were, especially for the price of the products!

I will definitely buy more of their eyeliner, eyeshadow and ultra matte lipsticks in the future!

If you have tried out any colourpop products tell me which ones are your favorite? Comment down below! 

I hope you guys liked this review or found it helpful!

Product Spotlight: Tarte's Greatest Glitz Collection Set

Happy 2016! I hope you all had a wonderful time during the holidays and ate a lot of great food!

Now that it's a brand new year, it only means that there are new things in the world of beauty! 

For the first review of the year I bought this gift set from Tarte on the ulta website (Now unavailable) They were having a deal the day after Christmas and I thought I'd buy myself a little belated Christmas gift!

As you can see it's very glitzy and sparkly (hence the name).The top is made out of sequins and it looks like it would make a great clutch bag for a night out if it was a bit smaller.

Once you lift the top it reveals the three different palettes along with a mirror, which I thought was a nice plus. There is also a drawer that had a lip butter and  Tarte's bestselling mascara as well.

There are 8 shades and a blush in each a palette! 
The colors range from gold, dark and silver tones with mate and shimmer finishes

Here are some swatches from each one:
*Note: I realized the lighter shadows didn't show up as I expected on camera, sorry 

Gold Palette

1.Toasted Marshmallow *
3.Dipped In Chocolate
Blush: Warmhearted

Rose Gold

1.Joy To The Pearl *
2.Glitzy Blitzen
3.Evening Affair 
Blush: Impress


1.Jingle All The Grey
2.Bedazzled Spruce
3.Black The beauty
Blush: Bubbly
I have to say overall I was happy with how pigmented the eyeshadows were, especially the darker shades. The shimmering ones had the right amount of glitter, perfect for a night out! 
Out of the eye shadows, I couldn't choose because they were all so pretty and I had literal heart eyes looking at them!

Out all the blushes, bubbly was my favorite because I could use it as a blush or a bronze highlighter.

 I hope you enjoyed this review and I will see you soon!
