  •     Uli – White with silver shimmer
  •     Ofala – Vibrant red
  •     Mmanwu – Peach
  •     Iri Ji – Bright pink
  •     Oro – Mustard

Pat and blend shades over primed eyelids.

Packaging:-


The outer packaging and the cardboard packaging of the palette have the same orange color and the same African figures on it. The cardboard box is sturdy and has magnetic closure in it. It has no mirror and no brush in it.

My Experience:-

The eyeshadow palette is a really vibrant one. Starting from packaging then color combo it wins my heart. The texture of the eyeshadows when touching with fingers is little grainy but they work fine on eyes. Love the pigmentation and these eyeshadow work great with primers. They have some fallout so one had to be careful about it.
Overall the palette is really affordable (during the sale) and worth buying too in terms of quality.

*** NEW COLOURPOP LIPPIE STIX REVIEW & SWATCHES



Hi Everyone,

Today I am up with review and swatches of COLOURPOP COSMETICS MATTE & MATTE -X RANGE LIPPIE STIX.

The Shade I grabbed are:-



  • GOLDIE (MATTE X)
  • FAST AS YOU  (MATTE)
  • POISON  (MATTE)
  • HAPPY THOUGHTS  (MATTE)
  • ARE YOU SURREAL  (MATTE)
  • SKY WALKING  (MATTE-X)

Price:-  $5.50 + shipping.
Availability:-  Not available in India. But you can definitely check with Instagram sellers who selling this range in approx. Rs.630-Rs.700/-.

A little info about ColourPop Cosmetics for those who are unknown of this brand:-


A brand that grows up in the city of angels, LA. They come up with a wide range of matte liquid lippies( both matte and satin and now metallic too) and eye shadows and highlighters followed by lippie stix and eyebrow pencils and gels and so on. Slowly they are increasing their range of products and they already created much hype in the beauty blogging and in makeup lovers world.

 

Packaging:-

 The lippie stix comes in white sleek packaging with the name and color of the lippie stix at the bottom of it. The lipstick is slim and has a slanting tip which made the application easy on lips. Due to its slim packaging, it is too easy to carry in your small purse too, so next time I am traveling I will make sure I reach out for these lippies only ;)

MY EXPERIENCE:-

Colourpop lippie stix are my all time favorite range of lipsticks. I love the matte and matte x formula mostly. The lippie stix is so slim and due to it's slanting tip it is very easy to apply on lips. It doesn't require any lipliner to line the lips as you can line and fill up your lips with this lippie stix only. The pigmentation of each lipstick is worth mentioning. One or two swipe is enough to cover up your lips.

The matte x lippie stix are super matte in texture while matte lippie stix are comfort matte in texture. The matte lippie stix have a satin finish while matte is just super matte in finish. Both matte and matte x lippie stix glides smoothly on my lips and no tugging or pulling. The matte lipstick does transfer a bit but matte x are transfer-proof. The dark shades of matte x lippie stix highly stain the lips while the matte doesn't leave any stain.

So, here are thumbs up and thumbs down points:-


Thumbs up-

  •     Travel-friendly packaging.
  •     Pigmented.
  •     Easy to apply on the lips.
  •     Non-drying.
  •     Perfect matte lipstick.
  •     Lasts six hours plus.
  •     Easy on the pocket.

Thumbs down -
  • Not available in India.

"Over in all, I love ColourPop Lippie stix of both Matte and Matte X-range as they are easy in the pocket and comfortable on my lips."

PAT McGRATH LABS MATTETRANCE™ LIPSTICK TRIOS REVIEW & SWATCHES





Talking about minis in my recent post a few days back related to that today I am up with "MATTETRANCE™ LIPSTICK TRIOS" from  PAT McGRATH REAL.

These  PAT McGRATH LABS  MATTETRANCE™ LIPSTICK TRIOS are available in three sets. They are SKIN SHOW(N*DES), COLOUR BLITZ(BRIGHTS), VICIOUS VENOMS(DARKS).

Today I am up with the SKIN SHOW LIPSTICK TRIO(limited edition) which has three lipsticks. 1995, OMI, FLESH 3.

Price:- Rs.2700-Rs.3000/- (approx). from the Instagram seller.
Available:- Not available in India. You can check here

DESCRIPTION

EXCLUSIVELY AT PATMcGRATH.COM – This legendarily luxe sets star three transfixing trios of MatteTrance™ Lipstick in charismatic colors and a finish so sinful, your pout will speak volumes without ever whispering a word.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • - 3 MatteTrance™ Lipsticks (4g/.14oz, 5.7" x 1.0" x 8.9")
  • - Innovative formulation combines a strong matte finish with highly saturated pigmentation.
  • - The vivid and vibrant collection of colors leave lips feeling luscious and smooth, with a supple, cushiony feel.
  • - Formulated with optical diffusers that blur the appearance of imperfections.
  • - A blend of polymers provides flexibility and adherence.
  • - An advanced formulation of spherical particles ensures a creamy, soft texture for the smoothest film of color.
  • - Combines powder film with a saturated pigment for lightweight opaque coverage.

I already have 5 full-size Pat lipsticks so these trios were on sale and so I grabbed it. Okay if you never tried out Pat lipstick then these trios of mini lipsticks of Pat are a great option for you all.

Packaging:-

The lipsticks have amazing packaging. The golden lip pout on black glossy lipstick case adds gorgeousness in the packaging. Both the minis and full-size lipsticks have the same luxe packaging.

My Experience:-

My bestie uses to say me before I tried out Pat lipstick that "If you ever try Pat you will never go back to your Mac"...lol she was damn right.

The texture, the pigmentation, the staying power of these lipsticks are bold over. The lipsticks I choose are matte one but they feels satin matte on my lips. They glide like butter and gives opaque coverage in just one swipe. The lipsticks stay pretty 7-8 hours on my lips. The n*de shades fade within 8 hours while the dark shades like pink and red stay more than 9 hours on my lips and they stain a bit too.
Although the n*de shades don't leave a stain behind they are also good in every way to compare to the bright shades.
Overall Pat Matte trance lipsticks are must try lipsticks. They are expensive but they are exclusive too in quality.








So that's all for today. See you in my next post.
