ColourPop Cosmetics Haul & First Impressions Review | Video

ColourPop Cosmetics Haul Review
ColourPop Cosmetics Haul

A couple of months ago I hauled these products from new brand ColourPop Cosmetics. I filmed a first impressions the first time I used the products and can share my thoughts with you today! I’ve been using these products for a couple of months so I can share my full opinion on this up and coming brand.

I hauled products from each of the lines at the time: Lippie Stix, Lippie Pencils, and Super Shock Shadows. They’ve since added both blushes, highlighters, and bronzers which all came out after I purchased and filmed my video. But, still plenty of fun products to talk about!

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Lovely Hanky Panky Review
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows in Lovely, Hanky Panky

First I’ll review the Super Shock Shadows: a formula that is truly unique. The shadows feel similar to a cream, but they work like a powder. This cream-powder hybrid hasn’t been done before that I know of, and it’s super unique! I find that the shadows work best with fingers because of the formula.

Lovely is a gorgeous champagne gold packed with a ton of shimmer. Hanky Panky is described as a cool toned brown, but as you can see it looks very warm. Nonetheless, both are beautiful shades! I don’t have any complains other than the fact that I always get fallout when I use Lovely, but the shimmer makes up for it because it is stunning. I like Hanky Panky, but not as much as I’d hoped as I prefer cool shades.

ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix Primer Review
ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix Primer

I really wanted to try the primer because I don’t have a lip primer, and I thought this one would work well with testing the Lippie Stix.

The primer feels silicone-y and then dries down to a tacky finish. It blurs imperfections and makes lips matte before applying your lipstick. Plus, it smells like vanilla frosting!

ColourPop Cosmetics BullChic Lippie Pencil Review

I bought Lippie Pencil in Bullchic because I have a black lipstick I like to wear and never had a liner for it- I just always used an eyeliner! So, this punny black shade was perfect.

Next time I plan on putting some concealer on my lips to get rid of the pink pigmentation, then I think this will work like a charm!

ColourPop Chi-Chi Lippie Stix Pencil Review

Next, I got Chi-Chi because it is my signature shade- orange! I got the Lippie Stix and pencil so I would be able to try both together. I think the combination works well- the pencil is drier and the lipstick is creamier, with a satin finish, although it pretty much acts matte once you apply.

The only notable difference is that the Lippie Pencil seems more red/darker than the Lippie Stix…but you’d expect a perfect match!

Overall I think I’d prefer an orange that’s more yellow and less red, but it’s a nice color for sure.

ColourPop Brink Lippie Stix Review

Lastly, I got Brink because it is supposed to be similar to Kylie Jenner’s lip look. It’s a matte finish which I was excited to try as well.

The color is a bit more rosy than what I would attribute to Kylie Jenner’s lipstick, but it’s a gorgeous My Lips But Better kind of shade.

I really love the ColourPop matte finish- it’s long-lasting without being drying.

Overall I’m really impressed with the entire ColourPop line. The price is right (everything under $10 a piece!), gorgeous packaging, and great product. Let me know what products are you favorite- and what should I try next?

 

 

 

 

 

DIY Gallery Wall Home Decor feat. Fulcrum Gallery

DIY Home Decor Gallery Wall
My Gallery Wall

DIY Gallery Walls are a really fun way to hang art in a nice fashion without having to do too much measuring. But, it an be hard to arrange all the art you have into the space you have. So, today I’m going to give you a tip as well as show you what I have hanging.

DIY Home Decor Gallery Wall Tutorial Paper Bags
How To Make A Gallery Wall

In order to make your gallery wall easy: cut out paper bags in the size of your art and hang those on the wall to get an idea of how you want to arrange your wall. That way, you don’t have to hold up each of the art pieces or accidentally hammer a nail where there shouldn’t be one! I arranged my art but didn’t care about the measurements in between each piece, it was all random. I then measured where to put the nails, in the center of each paper cut out. If your art has a wide lip  in the back that would effect where the nail goes, make sure to count that when you measure where to place the nail! An inch down makes a huge difference. Then, hammer in all of your nails at a downward angle, place the art on the nails and make sure it’s level! (I used an app)- voila! So easy anyone could do it.

DIY Home Decor Gallery Wall Fulcrum Gallery Andy Warhol Stamped Lips Custom Framed Art Review
Warhol Stamped Lips Print From Fulcrum Gallery

Now, as for the actual art in my mini gallery, my inspiration was the Andy Warhol Stamped Lips Print that I was sent from Fulcrum Gallery. I like how you can customize size, frames, and mats.

From the above photo, the gold foil heart and lip print are from my friend Taryn’s etsy shop TarynStMichele. I love the quality of her prints as they’re on thick paper. I may want to get some prints from when I studied abroad from her! I used IKEA frames for those.

The other gold foil print is of Italy from BoutiqueLumiere, also from Etsy. I can’t say that I’d recommend that one as much as I thought the paper was super thin, and mine even came with a bit of a crinkle in it. Thankfully not noticeable with the frame on. I got the frame from IKEA as well- I want to replace the cream colored mat to white eventually.

Lastly, the orange lipstick was painted by my younger sister Isabella.

I think this gallery wall gives my working space a whole fresh feel and it makes a great background for my YouTube videos- if only my studio lights didn’t reflect so much on the glass!

Dermalogica Precleanse and Precleanse Wipes Review

Dermalogica Precleanse and Precleanse Wipes Review
Dermalogica Precleanse Wipes & Original Precleanse

Lately cleansing oils have been all the rage- and I’ve loved trying as many variants as possible! But, did you know Dermalogica Precleanse has been out for a while, seemingly before the craze started!

Precleanse is an oil-busting emulsifier that dissolves makeup. Simply rub precleanse all over your face to remove makeup. Adding water makes it a milky white, allowing it to wash off without an oily residue. I really like this product because it does the job (including removing mascara) and makes my skin feel silky smooth.

Precleanse wipes offer everything the original does, but in a convenient wipe. These wipes are a bit oily and on the dry side, so I found that I needed two to remove all of my makeup. So, I wasn’t a big fan of them as they were a bit too dry.

You can grab these products separately or in a precleanse set for $56.
