Colour Pop Review and Tutorial

        So today I finally got a chance to play with my new Colour Pop Super Shock eyeshadows and Lippie Stix. I have to say that so far I love them. As you all know, I loves me some glitter and shine and these eyeshadows are killer. So let's review shall we?


        Bae Metallic Eyeshadow-  Rich eggplant purple with an emerald, and turquoise, glittery duo chrome metallic finish. This was a super hard color to photograph and I know the pics aren't that great to begin with, but it is a Gorgeous Color. It looks like a dark purple in the pot, but it's definitely eggplant and it has super staying power and blends beautifully.

        Tea Party Metallic Eyeshadow- A versatile soft peachy pink with gazillion silver glitters and subtle hints of pale pink glitter. Don't mind that this looks horrible, it came broken, but since it's so creamy all I had to do was pat it back down into the pot. I know I could've said something to them and I'm sure they would've replaced it, but it wasn't really necessary so I didn't bother. It just doesn't look like new, but it's definitely still usable. This is a pretty sheer color so you definitely have to use a primer under it and if you want it intense you will have to use a corresponding base, but it is definitely Gorgeous!!

        Fringe Metallic Eyeshadow- Shimmering champagne with gold and silver glitter. This again is a Gorgeous color. Again though it is a sheer color, so you definitely have to use a base or primer if you want it very pigmented.

        Girly Metallic Eyeshadow- Creamy vanilla with a flash of pink and gold duo chrome finish. This again is sheer, so primer or base required. But it's another Gorgeous color. It shows more pink on the skin than the cream color.

 Now for the Lippie Stix

        Bichette Lippie Stix- Deep red wine in a matte finish. I have to say I'm so in love with these Lippie Stix. This is a Gorgeous deep red color with a nice bluish undertone so it makes your teeth white and it goes on like a dream and lasted all day. It did crease a little in the cracks of my  lips because they are chapped. But I just used my finger to blend it back out again and was good to go. I ate, drank coffee and from water bottle, etc,. and it stayed pigmented. It did sheer out a little since I was leaving some on my water bottle and coffee cup, but was still highly pigmented. Quite impressed really.
        Lumière Lippie Stix- A dusty mauve pink in a matte finish created by the lovely @KathleenLights. My Gosh, it's another fave. I have dark pigmented lips so this is a great nude shade for those us that do. I'm also dark complected so a lot of nudes for most just does not look good on me because they are just too light. But this one is just right. Thank You Kathleen!!!!
        I ♥ this Lippie Stix- Red based fuchsia in a matte finish. OK, so another fave. Gorgeous Color and again it lasts and it's not too dry for being a matte.

        If you would like to achieve this look here is the face chart and how to below with a list of all the products I used.

Colour Pop Super Shock Eyeshadow Turorial

        1. Urban Decay "Naked"- This is my transition color that applied using a Sigma Tapered Blending brush E35. Just use windshield wiper motions right above the crease to blend out.
        2. Pop Colour "Fringe"- I just used my finger to pat this color on the inner 2/3 of my eyelid.
        3. Pop Colour "Tea Party"- I just used my finger to pat this color on the outer 1/3 of my eyelid.
        4. Pop Colour "Bae"- I blended this color in my crease using windshield wiper motions in the crease and oval circular motions on the outer part of my crease to blend it out a little more for more depth on the outer part of my crease with a Sigma Blending brush E25. I also smeared this color on the outer 3/4 of my lower lashline with the e.l.f. Essential Smudge Brush (the white handled one).
        5. Pop Colour "Girly"- I used this in the inner corner and into the inner 1/4 of the lashline and slightly over Bae to blend the two together with a Crown C461 Pencil brush.
        6. Wet n Wild "Sweet As Candy" Palette- I used the browbone color as my highlight color with the e.l.f. Studio "C" brush (the black one). I love this browbone color and it's my favorite highlight color. Just the right amount of shimmer and great for darker complexions as well as my fair complected beauties. It's just perfect.
        7. NYX Eyebrow Pencil EP06" Taupe"- When doing my brows I really hate the look of the lightest part of the brow being in the beginning of the brow. I know they are being called the "Instagram Brows". I have never done my brows that way and I personally don't like it. My brows naturally start out dark in the thickest part of the brow and then get lighter as they taper out on the ends. So that's how I like to do my brows when filling them in. I personally have always done it this way and feel that it looks more natural. So I fill in my entire brow with the taupe pencil then I go in with...
         8. NYX Eyebrow Pencil EP05 "Dark Brown"- ...and go over the first 1/3 to half of my brow and blend it in for a smooth transition. I also set my brows with a little translucent powder and then brush them out with Crown Spooly for not only a more natural look but staying power.
        9. Too Faced Bronzer "Chocolate Soleil"- I contoured my face with a Sigma Large Angled F40 brush. First I just want to say that you all know I'm not a big fan of Too Faced. Their packaging is amazing and draws you in saying, "But Me, I'm Cute!", but not impressed with the products themselves. But this bronzer, I absolutely Love Love Love!! It's not orange like most which does not flatter olive skin in the least and it's not too grey like so you don't look muddy. It's perfect, so Great Job! Too Faced.
        10. Laura Geller Blush n Brighten "Boysenberry"- This is an absolute Gorgeous color that's perfect for all skin tones and all make-up looks. I applied this as my blush using a Sigma Angled Top Kabuki F84 brush.

        Now here is the rest of the make-up I used in this look in case you are interested.

        1. Foundation- L'Oreal Visible Lift 146 Nude Beige using a Sigma F82 Round Top Kabuki.
        2. Concealer Under Eyes- Covergirl + Olay stick 310 Fair patted on using my finger.
        3. Concealer On Face- Covergirl + Olay stick 320 Fair/Light patted on using my finger.
        4. Mascaras- First application- Wet n Wild Megalength Waterproof C899 Black
                              Second application- Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Blackest Black
                             Third application- Essence I ♥ Extreme Black
        5. Powders- Rimmel Stay Matte 001 Transparent applied using a Sigma Foundation F60 on all of the concealed areas first so it doesn't oxidize and turn dark since I'm olive complected. Then Laura Geller Balance n Brighten Powder Foundation in Medium all over face with an e.l.f. Studio Complexion Brush (the black one).
        6. Eyeliner- Physician's Formula  Eye Booster liquid liner in Ultra Black
        7. Eyeshadow Primer- e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer (my all time fave primer)

        So, for my final review on Colour Pop cosmetics. I love them!!! The Lippie Stix are matte, but fairly creamy for being matte and they last on the lips. I would definitely do a lip scrub and put some lip balm on before you put it on, but other than that, I'm thoroughly impressed with them. I will definitely be ordering more and I just saw that they have now added blushes to their lineup. Let me know if you would like me to review them for you. Also, I was thinking about doing a give away. What do you think?
