Shayla x Colourpop Review + Swatches


Did somebody say rose gold? *adds to cart* Aside from pretty packaging and my current obsession with rose gold, I love a well put together makeup collection. Especially one that I can use for literally any occasion - and this my friends is the one. Colourpop teamed up with MakeupShayla and created such a beautiful and versatile collection that it's literally sold out 3 times. I can't believe I actually debated whether or not I was going to get this but I'm so glad I gave in!

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipsticks Review + Swatches


Girrrrrl, can we breathe?! RiRi's reign just isn't letting up and is keeping a tight grip on all the makeup lovers pockets when it comes to all these back to back Fenty releases. And I'm not even mad. Broke, but not mad at all. Anywho this review has been a long time coming and since these lippies are a part of her permanent collection I've been in no rush to review. I've finally swatched and tested these out and let me just say they are sooooo creamy and soft and super vibrant and all the good things you'd want in a matte lipstick.

My only gripe with these is that I wish they'd chosen the typical "pointed" lipstick shape for these because the rounded tips make it difficult to easily apply the lipstick to the corners of your lips..Round tip lipsticks just aren't my favorite in terms of application, though that surely has no effect on the richness of the formula in these lovely mattes.

Ellarie x Colourpop Review + Swatches


I've been wanting to try ColourPop for a very long time now. Not only because they're insanely affordable but also because of their huge color range. I've heard nothing but great things about the brand and when I got wind of their new collaboration with beauty Youtuber Ellarie, I knew I had to go ahead and finally indulge.

Ellarie's collection features 6 essential lip shades in matte, satin and gloss finishes. I purchased 5 out of the 6 and I must say on first impressions I am truly pleased.


Each lip color retails for $6.50 or can be purchased as a set for $32
