ColourPop Mar Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette

A few weeks ago ColourPop released their Col + Mar Collection for the Summer. I was really excited to see that this collection included two new eyeshadow palettes. Each palette features bold and bright eyeshadows. The first palette I'm sharing is the Mar Eyeshadow Palette, which includes shades of blue and bronze.


Description: You’re so wavy. This teal and bronze 9-pan shadow palette is a colour lover’s dream! Insanely pigmented teals and wearable bronzes make this the perfect vacay palette. Slip this sleek mirrored palette in your luggage and make a splash!

Retail Price: $12.00

Purchase From: ColourPop



Shade Names & Descriptions:
El Rey: metallic soft peach with gold pearl
Wild One: metallic rich orange copper
Detour: matte cobalt
Boozy: metallic orange with gold pearl
Gridlock: bright teal with silver & teal glitter

Check out swatches below of the ColourPop Mar Eyeshadow Palette!



If you're a fan of blues and teals then you need to purchase this palette! It's also a great palette for those who have brown or hazel eyes too. Each shade swatched perfectly fine except for Detour. It was definitely the most patchiest shade out of the 9 eyeshadows. My favorite shades from this palette are Wild One, Gridlock and My Way.

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lips

ColourPop released some new lipgloss shades and of course I couldn't resist ordering some! There's a total of 16 shades to choose from. The shades are available in either a Prismatic, Pearlescent, or Tinted finish. The Ultra Glossy Lip remind me of MAC Dazzleglass, but a lessy stickier and affordable version.


Description: Swipe on our hi-shine, smoothing (never sticky) gloss and prepare to be obsessed. Enriched with jojoba oil to moisturize, nourish, and provide a cushiony feel for juicy, fuller-looking lips. Our brush applicator applies a perfect plush layer that looks and feels amazing. Five flawless finishes from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour. Apply over naked lips or your favorite lipstick.

Retail Price: $6.00

Purchase From: ColourPop - Ulta

I purchased the ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip in Champagne Mami, Fantasia, and On Board.

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip features a short brush on applicator.

Look at this close-up of the gorgeous shimmer!

Champagne Mami: pearlescent rose gold
Fantasia: pearlescent golden nude
On Board: prismatic bronze

I'm so in love with the Colour Ultra Glossy Lips! They are very comfortable on the lips and non-sticky. They have a yummy caramel scent to them. You can wear the Ultra Glossy Lip alone for a shimmery, sheer wash of color. Wearing it over a lipstick will give your lips a more pouty, fuller appearance. My only minor complaint is the short brush-on applicator tip. It can make the lipgloss application a bit more tedious.


Have you tried the new Ultra Glossy Lip yet? Favorite shade(s)?

Pixi Beauty Liquid Fairy Lights

A lot of brands have been coming out with liquid eyeshadows lately and Pixi Beauty is the latest brand to release some. Pixi by Petra has dropped Liquid Fairy Lights, which are currently available in only five shades. These can worn alone on the lid or used as a topper over eyeshadow.

These are a great alternative or "dupe" to the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow. Stila's liquid eyeshadow retail for $24 with less (0.153 oz) product. Pixi Beauty's liquid eyeshadow retails for $15 with more (5g) product.


Description: Long wearing, liquid glimmer eyeshadow lights up the eyes with super sparkles to create an ethereal look. Infused with chamomile and rose extracts to soothe and hydrate.

Retail Price: $15.00

Purchase From: Target - Pixi Beauty - Cult Beauty

Pixi Beauty Liquid Fairy Lights available in shades Crystalline, SunRay, RoseGold, BareBrilliance, and PassionLight.

Look at this close up of the Pixi By Petra Liquid Fairy Lights. The shimmer is amazing!

Crystalline - iridescent silver diamond
SunRay - yellow gold
RoseGold - rose gold
BareBrilliance - rosy taupe
PassionLight - copper bronze

Swatches of the Pixi Beauty Liquid Fairy Lights. Aren't these gorgeous?!

I'm a huge fan of glitter, especially on the lid. These do not disappoint at all! Each shade is very stunning and offers the perfect amount of sparkle. My top two favorite shades are Crystalline and PassionLight.

Liquid eyeshadows are perfect for a mess free, no-hassle glitter look. I definitely recommend using a glitter eye primer before applying your Liquid Fairy Lights or any other glitter eyeshadow you own. A glitter primer will keep the glitter intact and give it a more sparkly appearance.

ColourPop Makeup Ur Mind Shadow Palette

I was able to get ColourPop's newest eyeshadow palette in a recent order from a free promotion they were offering: Makeup Ur Mind Shadow Palette. This palette was created by costumers that voted for these particular shades. It features six limited edition metallic eyeshadows. The palette is now officially available on their website for ordering!



Description: Look familiar? This is the palette that YOU voted on! Boss Lady is notorious for always changing her mind on shades, concepts, launch dates, you name it!! And she turned to YOU to create a palette that you wanted. Rich jewel tones and unique metallic shades, they’re the shades that you love! Thanks for helping Boss Lady "make up her mind"!

Retail Price: $12.00 - Purchase here!


Shade Names and Descriptions:
Over It: metallic berry purple with multidimensional blue glitter
Toasted: metallic silver
Inside Out: metallic eggplant with an icy blue flip
Lock & Key: metallic deep teal
4ever Young: metallic canary yellow
BRB: metallic salmon pink with a gold flip

Here is a close up of those gorgeous jewel tones shades of Makeup Ur Mind.

Swatches of the ColourPop Makeup Ur Mind Shadow Palette. Definitely brown girl friendly!

I am happy that I got Makeup Ur Mind for free because I probably would not purchase this alone. I like the concept of the palette, but it's definitely not a palette you pull out to create a single look with. My ideal palette always has at least 1 to 2 transition or crease shades in it. The colors swatched nicely and would look even better with a glitter glue primer applied. Do you need it? No! Is it nice to add to your collection? Yes, only if you tend to wear these eyeshadow shades.
