Beauty Haul: Color Pop, Make up Forever Etc.

I recently made some makeup purchases as is my habit. My current addition is colourpop. They are lucky they don’t have a brick and motor store. So just going to do a quick review of some of my latest beauty purchases for those makeup freaks like me.

Colour Pop:

Matte Lippie Taurus

Highlighter Avalon

Ultra Glossy Lip My Jam

Eye shadow Bae and Nillionare

Overall love the colors. Can never go wrong with Colorpop.

I also purchased Dermablend blurring moose camo foundation which claims to help decrease the appearance of textural imperfections in the skin. While it doesn’t quite do it perfectly, it does cover up any pigment imperfections and helps minimize large pores. However, I’m not sold on it being good to hold back oiliness just yet. I mix it with It powder no more pores which is my truth so can’t tell  yet. One note, no make up is a cure all but you have to put it on right to get the best effect. There are tons of youtube videos on how to put on foundation to hide flaws. Here’s my quick and dirty, put it IN the skin not just on. This is why beauty blenders are so popular. Press the foundation in the skin, don’t just smear it across the face. Tap/press the color in all over the face (yes, this will take time), then lightly blend it all. This helps with covering the imperfections.

I also go Urban Decay Perversion mascara which made my lashes say Hey. Although not a cheap product. Real talk, Loreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara works just as well and is my every day go to.  Finally I got a sample of Makeup forever artist shadow. Nice but nothing to write home about. They have other products that I prefer.


Finished look with Taurus on my lips and My Jam on the top in the center. Avalon highlighter above my check bones and at the tip of my nose. On my eyes, Make up forver on the lids with Nillionare over top. Bae in the outer corner. Perversion mascara on. Dermablend on the skin with It Powder on top. A simple wet and wild black eyeliner on top and bottom of eye water lines.
