ColourPop Super Shock Shadows: Sequin, I Heart This and Hammered.

Now, lets just all take a moment to take in the metallic gorgeousness of these three shadows.  Sequin, I Heart This and Hammered are all extremely pigmented and just so lush in all their shiny goodness.

Swatch: Sequin (metallic)

Sequin is a really beautiful copper shade with silver and gold glitter.  This one really is glittery so it may give a bit of fallout if you try to blend it out too much but generally I tap this onto the lid and blend gently with my finger and it is just perfect.

Swatch: I Heart This (metallic)

I Heart This is a really pretty lid shade.  This is a cool-toned silvery taupe with a tone of glitter.  I use this often with a matte taupe in the crease and not much else because it is just so lovely on its own.  This one really catches the light on the eyes.  Stunning.

Swatch: Hammered (metallic)

And finally we have Hammered.  I think this one is a really unique colour: olive with gold glitter in a metallic finish.  Sometimes with olive shades I find that they just end up looking black on the eye but I find that Hammered maintains its beautiful olive colour on the eye.  This looks great paired with other brown and gold shadows.  I wondered when I purchased this if I would get much wear out of it but I actually wear it regularly and very much enjoy how it looks.

So that brings another Super Shock Sunday to a close.  Have a look at the ColourPop website if you dare… but be prepared to be extremely tempted!!

Have a fantastic day!!

ColourPop Super Shock Sunday: Lippie Stix edition

Welcome to instalment five of Super Shock Sunday.  If you missed the previous posts, you can find all the blogs from this ColourPop series under the category tab labelled Super Shock Sunday on the right side of this page.

Today is going to be a Lippie Stix edition with a focus on Cake, Fancy, Rocket, I Heart This and Dazed.

Lippie Stix: Cake, Fancy, Rocket, I Heart This and Dazed.

I was really interested in trying some peachy/coral lip shades in the theme of my coral-toned love affair.  I also wanted a few richer tones for the holidays and I was really happy with my choices here.

Swatches: Cake (satin), Fancy (satin), Rocket (satin), I Heart This (matte) and Dazed (matte).

Cake, Fancy and Rocket are all a satin formula and I think that the main difference between satin and matte is to do with the feel on the lips and the longevity on the lips but I have to say that they don’t look that different.  The satin formula is more moisturising but the wear time isn’t as good as the mattes.  I also find that you do need to exfoliate before using the satin lipsticks otherwise they can gather a little in the fine lines of your lips.

The only other point to make really is that I was surprised how similar Cake and Rocket look when swatched.  Cake is a softer and more pastel peach while Rocket is a pinky coral, but if I had my time again, I would probably not have purchased both as they do look similar on the lips.

I adore the matte formula from ColourPop and I find they last SO well even through eating and drinking.  Whenever I wear I Heart This I get compliments, it really is a stunning shade, and Dazed has been the perfect Christmas colour.

I really enjoy these lipsticks from ColourPop – such fun colours.

Have a wonderful day!
