Colourpop x KathleenLights haul: Alyssa, November, Mr. Bing, and Krinkle

Once more KathleenLights and Colourpop have teamed up again for a new collaboration! I was so excited when Kathleen announced that she was coming out with some new products with Colourpop! She ended up doing three new lip colors in Colourpop’s Ultra Satin lip finish, a creme gel color (potted eyeliner), and a creme gel liner. I ended up snagging two of the lip colors and the eyeliner pencil and I am just in love!

Colourpop: Alyssa, November, Mr. Bing, and Krinkle

I picked up the Ultra Satin lipsticks in Alyssa and November and the creme gel liner in Mr. Bing, as well as a Supershock shadow in Krinkle. (Not a collaboration item.) I have tried the ultra satin formula before and absolutely love it, so I knew I would love the lipsticks, but this was the first liner I had tried from Colourpop. I am so impressed with it! It glides on so smoothly, without any of the tugging or pulling that can sometimes happen with other eye liners, and it is quite long-wearing. I’m really itching to pick up a few more of their liners now after trying this one!

The eye shadow in Krinkle was just an impulse buy as I was about to check out. It’s a really pretty silver blue with lots of silver reflects in it. I’ve got this look in mind of a dark halo eye with this in the center. That’s definitely more of a special occasion look for me, so I don’t know how usable this shadow will be, but it’s fun!

The creme gel liner, Mr. Bing, is described as a rich warm brown in a matte finish. In the picture above I used it to line my upper lash line and my water line. I love how warm and rich the color is and it wears like a dream! I’m also wearing November on the lips. I actually posted this picture on Twitter and Kathleen retweeted it! Aaaahhh! Craziness! Let’s just say it made my day!

As you fellow Friends lovers might have picked up, this liner is indeed named after Chandler Bing, specifically from the scene where Monica is pretending she’s not sick and tries to seduce Chandler by calling for “Dr. Bing to the bedroom”. I cracked up when Kathleen explained the name for this one! Someone mentioned that if Kathleen does another collaboration with Colourpop, she should name something “Mrs. Chanandler Bong”. I would die laughing if that happened! Brilliant idea nameless person whose comment I happened to see on Instagram! I wish I could give you proper credit.

Alyssa is described as a dusty neutral pink. I love this shade as it’s a lovely everyday neutral color. It’s one of those that if you’re not sure what lip color to pick, just pick Alyssa because it will go with everything.

November is described as a mid-tone warm peachy pink. This is just the perfect pretty pink, which is something I was lacking in my collection oddly enough. I love how much life it brings to my face when I wear this shade.

That’s it for my Colourpop x KathleenLights haul! I hope you enjoyed and be sure to check out the Colourpop website as well as Kathleen’s Youtube channel. Colourpop is fast becoming one of my all-time favorite affordable brands.

I’ll see you soon in my next post! Have a great day!

 

 

Colourpop: 20% Off Haul

About a month ago Colourpop hosted a sitewide 20% off sale. Usually when I see a 20% off sale, I brush it off. I mean seriously, come back when you’re actually giving me a discount worth my time! Can you hear the tight wad in me? In Colourpop’s instance though, their products are already extremely inexpensive, so 20% off actually made a significant enough difference for me to go ahead and snag a few things I had had my eye on for a while!

I got five lip products with two being a matte formula, one of their new matte X formulas, and two ultra matte lips. From left to right:

Hype Girl has become my new favorite neutral lip! It is so creamy and smooth and I love the pigmentation. Colourpop has their lippie stix formula perfected. Heart On and Privacy Please are close seconds on my favorites of the order. I am all about a rich bright pink and Heart On definitely delivers.  I had never tried a rich plum pink color before, and I really like it on me! Privacy Please wears quite nicely. Barely There is a very vibrant coral, almost red color and it makes a great statement lip. The only lip product I was disappointed in was Are N Be and ironically it was the shade I was most excited to try. It is described as a rich mauve plum, but it’s a lot deeper in tone than what the websites photo depicted. It looks quite dark, almost black on my lips, which on my fair skin tone, is the first step to looking like a creature of the night. Not my look. Nope.

Four out five is not bad considering I wasn’t able to try any of the shades before I ordered them! I would like to caution you on the Ultra Matte formula if you have particularly dry lips. As with all liquid lipsticks that dry matte, it will be drying. It’s not painful on me, but I recommend putting on a lip oil or chapstick while you are doing your makeup and then you can wipe them away and put on the lipstick.

I also got three of their Supershock shadows. I have tried their shadows before and I absolutely love them! The texture is like nothing I’ve ever experienced with an eye shadow. They are soft and pillowy, and actually give a little when you touch them like a sponge.

I have been trying to incorporate more color into my eye looks lately so I decided to get this bright sky blue. I love to wear it on the lower lash as just a pop of color, which I think is so fun for spring and summer! Porter is part of the Where the Night Is collection created by KathleenLights, one of my all time favorite Youtube beauty gurus. In the pot it looks red-brown to me, but it has a lot of purple undertones in it. It looks really pretty on the eyes and I love the small flecks of shine in it. It really makes it pop on the eyes. This would particularly nice on green eyes. It is so beautiful! The last color is Wattles and I absolutely love putting this all over my lids and into my crease for a simple everyday eye. It has a lot of pink undertones, but it doesn’t make you look sickly. That always worries me with pink eye shadows. Nobody wants to look diseased! Wattles on the lid and Porter on the outer corner are a stunning combination. The colors play off of each other very well.

I only spent $33.60 for eight products, which is not too bad at all! I love how inexpensive Colourpop is. I’ve only gotten one product so far that I’m not crazy about and I’ve ordered from them several times before.

Izzy of course had to get in on the swatching action as I was finishing up shooting all the products. She is so gracefully modeling Privacy Please for your viewing pleasure. I just had to include this! If Izzy and Lailah come in while I’m doing my makeup they always want some too. Generally, I’ll just put some highlighter on their cheeks so they’ll be sparkly and they think it is just the coolest thing ever.

I hope you enjoyed this haul! Let me if you want to see these lip products on me and I can of course do another post about that. I hope you’re having a great day!
