SWATCH GALLERY- COLOURPOP "THE KNOCKOUT" & "BLOW ME AWAY" PALETTES



Hi Guys,
So currently I am in a swatch mood and that's why I decided to share all those pending swatches of products that I am yet to post on my blog.


So, in today's post, I am going to swatch two best palettes of Colourpop Cosmetics. 


One is ColourPop Pressed Powder Face Duo-THE KNOCKOUT and the other is ColourPop BLOW ME AWAY Pressed Powder Shadow Palette.

Price:-


  • Colour Pop The Knockout palette is a limited edition and retails for $16.00 and contains 0.56 oz.
  • ColourPop Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette is retail for $18.00 for 0.20 oz.



ColourPop BLOW ME AWAY Pressed Powder Shadow Palette:-


ColourPop BLOW ME AWAY Pressed Powder Shadow Palette is a mix of warm peaches, corals, and oranges eyeshadows. All the shades are super pigmented. The texture of the eyeshadows is so soft that it blends with ease. Among the four shades, two shades (Centerfold, Slim Fit) are not actually eyeshadows, they are “Pressed Pigments,” which are listed as “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”. As these are pressed pigments so they have some fallouts too. While the other two has almost no fallouts. All the shades stay forever( if used with a primer) until I remove it with makeup remover else they stay pretty eight hours on my eyes without fading.

  • Take a Break is a light peachy gold with warm orange undertones and a soft, metallic sheen.
  • Issues is a light peachy orange with warm undertones and a matte finish.
  • Centerfold is a bright, medium coral with orange undertones and a matte finish.
  • Slim Fit is a rich, dark coral-orange with red undertones(warm) and a matte finish.






ColourPop The Knockout palette:-
The face palette has two shades in it. One is a blush and another one is a highlighter.

  • EXCUSE MY FRENCH- pressed powder blush. It is a medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish blush.
  • LIKE TO WATCH- pressed powder highlighter. It is a medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted finish.

ColourPop The Knockout palette comes in a cardboard sturdy packaging. Both the blush and highlight are soft, silky in texture. Both the shades are super intense in pigmentation. 


The blush blends easily on the skin and the shade is buildable one. Coming to the highlighter, it gives a nice subtle glow on my skin and it doesn't enhance the pores of skin too. Both the shades stay 7-8 hours on my skin without fading.




Overall these palettes are awesome palettes and worth buying one. I love both of them as both are just perfect for summers.

So, that's all for today.

SWATCH GALLERY- COLOURPOP SHORT AND SWEET MINI SIZE LIP KIT




Hi Everyone, 

In today's swatch gallery post I am going to share COLOURPOP MINI SIZE LIP KIT named as "SHORT AND SWEET". 


The lip kit was launched long back where there were five liquid lipsticks in three different finish in mini size.
As these are 0.64g/0.02 OZ each, so you're getting a fifth of the full-size in each.

Price:- I bought it in Rs.1900/- from an Instagram store (it is quite pricey I admit from Insta store).

Three of ColourPop's five liquid lip formulas are represented here: 

 
Ultra Glossy, Ultra Satin, and Ultra Matte. 


  • Sugar Lips is the Ultra Glossy finish, sparkly, moisturizing and non-tacky.
  • The Ultra Satin finish (Love Muffin and Schnookums) is highly pigmented with a slight sheen.
  • Pooky bear and Honey pie belong to Ultra matte finish.

Shade Despription:-

  • SUGAR LIPS: described as 'golden pink with gold, silver, copper and hot pink glitter'
  • LOVE MUFFIN: described as a 'pastel baby pink'.
  • SCHNOOKUMS: described as a 'mid-tone warm rose'.
  • POOKY BEAR is described as 'true coral'.
  • HONEY PIE described as a 'bright pinky red' (my favorite one among all).

Colourpop Ultra matte finish liquid lipsticks are my favorite one but sometimes they do crumble or look flaky with time. They even make my lips dry after few hours. so I don't recommend this finish usually.

Colourpop Ultra Satin finish is the most comfortable formula of liquid lipstick in Colourpop (according to me). They are like comfort matte on lips for hours.

Coming to Colourpop Ultra gloss finish, as I am not a gloss person so I can't comment on ultra gloss finish of Colourpop glosses but definitely "sugar lips" can be worn on top of any lipsticks or all alone if you want some sparkle on your lips.

Overall the kit was cute and was worth buying for trying out all formulas of liquid lipsticks of Colourpop. Colourpop always comes up with this kind of lip kits so keep your eye on their website and try one if you are a lipstick lover and love collecting lipsticks of different finishes.







That's all for today.

REVIEW AND SWATCHES AND FOTD USING OF COLOURPOP FEM ROSA "SHE AND "HER" PALETTE



Eye shadows are my second favorite thing in makeup after Lipsticks. And so I keep buying eyeshadows when I am not buying any lipsticks...lot.

So today I am going to share my experience with Colourpop Fem Rosa collection. The collection launched last year (2017) which consists of two beautiful palettes. One is Fem Rosa She Pressed Powder Eye Shadow Palette and another is Fem Rosa Her Pressed powder Cheek Palette.

Fem Rosa, She Pressed Powder Eye Shadow Palette was priced $16, which I bought in Rs.1600/- from an Instagram stores.

Fem Rosa Her Pressed powder Cheek Palette was priced $15, which I bought in Rs.1450/- from the same Instagram seller (not mentioning her page name as I guess she stops her business).

Packaging:-

Both the palette can be given 10/10 just for the packaging. Both come in a beautiful packaging of pink carton box. The palette itself comes in beautiful pink and red roses combination hard box. Both the palette has a magnetic closure. All the name of the eyeshadows are written at the back of the carton box and at the back of the palette too. Both the palette has no mirror in it. And both the palette has very sleek packaging and they are very lightweight. So both are the travel-friendly palette.

My experience:-

Fem Rosa, She Pressed Powder Eye Shadow Palette:-

The very first time I saw the palette I love it. Not because it has some awesome shades which I don't have in my stash but it is all because of packaging that I grabbed it. Now the Colourpop brand has some awesome eyeshadows quality. I have few pressed single eyeshadows too before so I was pretty sure about the eyeshadow quality of this palette. And yes, this palette stand out my expectation too. The palette is basically a warm based palette with mostly pinks, peach, plum, coral and copper shades which are just perfect to create any kind of look. The eyeshadows are buttery in texture and they blend super easily on eyelids. The eyeshadows stay forever on eyelids until you remove it. They have very minimal fallouts. And these eyeshadows don't crease on crease line too.

 Overall I love the palette and I wish I could recommend it to all but it is now oos in Colourpop Website.

Fem Rosa Her Pressed powder Cheek Palette:-

Lately, the concept of having one bronzer, one blush and one highlighter is found in many brands. And this concept actually very handy when you are traveling or in hurry. So it was started with Sugar cosmetics Contour De force palette (reviewed here) that my second purchase was this Fem Rosa Her Pressed powder Cheek Palette. The palette has a bronzer, a highlighter and a matte pink blush which is just perfect for fair to medium skin tone beauties. The pigmentation of all bronzer, blush, and highlighter are awesome. One swipe and you can see the color. One should use the bronzer light handed as it is that much pigmented. The blush is a beautiful matte pink and super pigmented. The highlighter is a beautiful golden sheen kind of highlighter and it can be used as blinding highlighter for party makeup or very light handed too for any day look.

Overall I am just loving this palette and happy that I grabbed both before they gone.

My final verdict:-

Both the palette according to my opinion is awesome in every way. The packaging, pigmentation, quality of the shades everything is damn good. But now as it is oos and if you feel like buying it then let me tell you honestly that the eyeshadows in that palette are pretty dupeable and the cheek palette is dupeable too (many drugstore brands have this kind of palette now) so you can check in other brands too.
















That's all for today, I will catch you in my next post. Until then bye....
