Colourpop: Brow Boss Pencil

Colourpop Brow Boss Pencil and Gel 10.png

Colourpop is releasing their new Brow Boss Pencil & Gel on  Thursday, 8.24! The Brow Boss Pencil is a dual sided (one end for a spoolie & one for the product) and will be $6.

You may be wondering, how does the Brow Boss Pencil differ from the existing Precision Brow Brown Pencil? – it’s actually quite simple. The Brow Boss deposits color a bit more sparingly and is slightly less pigmented (basically, it’s a bit more fool proof). The Precision Pencil, on the other hand, contains more pigmentation and provides more product & color-payoff in one swipe than. In other words, this one is meant for slightly more experienced brow gals or simply those that prefer a more bold brow. One big difference, however, is that the Precision pencil is NOT retractable (the Brow Boss is), so once it’s rolled up, you can’t roll it back down. That’s kinda scary so be careful!

Colourpop Brow Boss Pencil and Gel 7

This is the PERFECT addition to the CP line – something that will work for makeup gurus & newbies alike! We love that they are thinking of innovative ways to incorporate items into their brand that will suit the expertise spectrum of ALL makeup lovers. Just when we thought we couldn’t love Colourpop more, they make us fall for them all over again.

Colourpop: New Pressed Powder Highlighter & Bronzers

Colourpop New Pressed Powder Highlighter

We are still in WOW – Colourpop hit us all with a HUGEEEE release today! Including the release of their brushes & concealers (click there to see our post all about those lovelies), they released 12 new Pressed Powder Highlighters & 6 new Bronzers! They have sold bronzers & highlighters before, of course, but never as individual PRESSED powders & never in such adorable little compacts! They even have a perfect sized mirror inside (you know how we feel about packaging with mirrors, YASSSSS)! The powders with compacts are retailing for $8 but the pans can be purchased without the compact for only $7.

Colourpop New Pressed Powder Highlighter Swatches 2

The highlighter shades come in Freak Like Me (a champagne peach), Boy Next Door (a light warm gold), Total Package (a metallic rose gold), Velvet Rope (a soft pink with a gold flip), Bae Area (a warm bronze), Happy Camper (a coppery bronze), S’il Vous Play (a silvery white), Ruffle My Feathers (a true yellow gold), Angel Food (a pale lavender with a subtle turqouise flip), Here Kitty Kitty (a warm ivory), Boujee Call (a soft peach with a gold flip), & Go Honey (a bubble gum pink). 

Colourpop New Pressed Powder Highlighter Swatches

Clearly, these swatch beauuuuuutifully & are seriously BOLD. Like, shine bright like a diamond status. Which we love. So much. A launch of a whopping 12 shades is kind of nutty but we seriously dig each and every one! There is something here for everyone; from the palest skin to the deepest, everyone is going to fall in love with these silky soft, super blendable babes. Believe it or not (and I NEVER say this), you might actually be able to find a highlighter here that you don’t already have in your collection… I know. That’s how real this is.

Colourpop New Pressed Powder Bronzer Swatches

These are honestly equally as exciting (if not more because I’m truly a bronzer freak). The bronzer shades are CA Dreaming (a light golden warmth), Private Party (a rich brown with a satin finish), Afternoon Delight (medium golden brown), In It To Win It (a dark brown in a satin finish), Rodeo Drive (a medium red brown), Bits and Pieces (a satin red brown). Is anyone else feeling those reddish shades?! I’ve never tried a bronzer that leans that red but I am super intrigued! TBH, I have a seriously not cute sun burn pretty much all over me and my face right now so maybe that type of tone would go just perfectly with my reddish complexion right now, ehh?? I think it’s worth a go – especially for only $8! Click below to grab yours!


Colourpop: Brushes & Concealer

Colourpop brushes 2

These have been CRAZY long awaited – the Colourpop No Filer Concealers Brushes dropped TODAY, 7.25! (So did a butt ton of highlighters & bronzer, see our next post). This is such a BIG DEAL! We have been dying to get our hands on these! Take a look:

Colourpop brushes

Holy gorgeous! These 12 brushes comes individually & are also sold as a set! The launch includes a Large Powder Brush ($11), a Blush Brush ($9), an Angled Face Brush ($9), a Stippling Brush ($8), a Fan Brush ($7), a Small Fluff Brush ($7), a Small Eye Shader Brush ($6), a Medium Eye Shader Brush ($6), a Blending Brush ($6), a Tapered Blending Brush ($6), a Pencil Brush ($6) and an Angled Eye Brush ($5). The entire bundle can be bought together as Brush Bundle for $50 (weird, CP advertised the bundle as being $78 but then launched it at $50 with the $70 crossed off in red beside it as if it were on sale? Very odd) and the Brush Bundle with Roll can be purchased for $55 (apparently originally $86?) however this set is sold out already.

Whewwwwww, did you get all of that?! These look so simple yet gorgeous & seem SO FLUFFY! MesiJesi used literally ALL of these on her face in her most recent video & she RAVED about them! The only downside; there are no names on the brush handles. This might not be a big deal to most but for those that need to reference the type of brush their using (say for YouTube videos or to repurchase), that would be tricky. Be sure to peep Jesi’s video below to get the scoop & see the brushes in action! She actually tried on a bunch of the No Filter Concealers, too, which bring us to our next point….

To me, this here is the REAL star of the show – I don’t know about you, but complexion products are my favvvvvvvorite! Give me a new concealer or foundation to try out Especially when it’s CP! These comes in a TON of shades (15 to be exact) ranging from super fair (fair 5) to quite deep (rich 75) and retail for $6 each. Yes. That is correct. $6! I bet most of the concealers in your makeup bag right now cost much more than that, am I right??

Colourpop Concealer Swatches 2

The formula was created to feel super lightweight but feel creamy while blurring imperfections with a soft, creaseproof, matte finish. They appear to be a solid medium coverage but can be built up for even more pigmentation if needed. Seems like the whole package, huh?? None of the concealers nor brushes are sold out yet (literally the only sell out was the bundle that included the brush roll) so you can grab whatever you want like, NOW! I’m headed over to make a purchase now! What are you picking up??

Colourpop X Karrueche

Colourpop X Karrueche palette.png

WE’VE GOT PART 3 PEOPLE!! Of what, you ask?! Colourpop released their new THIRD collab with Karrueche on TODAY – the FemRosa Collection! The collection consists of a face palette in Her ($15), an eyeshadow palette in She ($16), & a Fem Rosa lip set ($15 – they are also being sold separately for $6).

The She eyeshadow palette consists of 12 shades & truly embodies the rose theme of this launch. This is the softest, most sultry, gorgeous palette like, ever. There aren’t really any super deep shades which lends this palette to be inherently dainty and girly – a perfect, everyday palette! It looks like more than half of the shades are satin or shimmery, but this type of palette kind of calls for that, am I right?? The shades mesh so flawlessly together, too! Ugh! The real question is, though – is this going to drop like it’s HOT like the Yes Please palette?! We will have to wait and see.

The Her face palette includes a blush, bronzer, & highlight – the first palette from CP to include ALL 3 pressed products IN ONE! The highlight is very clearly on the yellowy, gold side (and, in swatches, seems almost too dark for lighter skin tones) so it may not suit everyone. However, it does provide that POP when swatched. The blush is relatively neutral and looks like it would suit most skin tones. The bronzer isn’t very deep which will make it perfect for light to medium skin tones but my deeper tone ladies probably won’t get much use out of that shade. Overall, the trio looks pretty sweet and the packaging is pretty much TO DIE FOR so you can’t really go wrong.

Lastly, we have the lip set which includes 1 Ultra Glossy Lip + 2 Ultra Satin Lip for $6 each. The shades include Mrs. (a deepened coral Ultra Satin), Darling (a deep plum Ultra Satin) & Contessa (a warm gold with hints of pink & golden glitter Ultra Glossy). The tubes are SO FREAKING CUTE! OMG! The font is this adorable almost type-writer style look with a beautiful rose imprinted above it. This is the type of packaging that we have such a hard time resisting! What did you pick up today?!

Colourpop: Crushed Crystals Collection

Colourpop Crushed Crystals Collection.png

Guys, we are seriously freaking out. CP is about to change the game AGAIN. Colourpop is releasing their new Crushed Crystal Collection on Friday, 7.07 but we don’t even know if we can wait. The collection consists of all NEW priming & setting sprays, liquid highlighters, and lip balms! There are 4 different shades in each (as in, each shade comes in a spray, lip balm & liquid highlighter). There is SO MUCH to tell you about to buckle in and hang tight to your lipgloss.

The Crushed Crystals collection includes:

Aventurine ✨ as I mentioned, this will come in a setting spray, a liquid highlighter AND a lip balm – it’s like a little family! The setting spray is formulated specifically for oily skin & includes coconut water to add tons of hydration (which oily skin still TOTALLY needs!), cucumber water to aid in coming any redness or skin irritation and lemon extract for some vitamin C that your skin will seriously LOVE. It will retail for $6. The highlighter is a warm gold with hellaaaaaa shine and has slight green flecks that pop when your face hits the light just right. This will retail for $9 (a little high for CP, no?). And lastly, the lip balm in Aventurine is a super smooth but kind of crazyyyyy opalescent green with a slight blue shift. These will be $5.

Aquamarine ✨ This setting spray ($6) is made just for dry skin (me!). The red algae extract in it helps improve the healthy supple fullness of your skin while plumping it with hydration while the apple extract adds an extra boost of moisture – plus it smells like grapefruit so YUM! The liquid highlighter ($9) is SUPER BOLD – picture a metallic, frosty blue with a violet undertone. This is a blinding highlight FOR.REAL. The lip balm ($5) also makes a statement with it’s blue tone and violet flip.
Amethyst ✨ Now we have a priming spray – is it just me, or is that kind of a newish thing? I have yet to try one, however I’m sure most setting sprays could be used before makeup too, right?? Anyway, this spray ($6) is made for oily skin, too! It is full of dragonfruit extracts which lend your skin antioxidants it needs to stay strong and also features pomegranate & orange extracts which help soften skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles.  The liquid highlighter ($9) is one of my favs so far – it’s literally purple, guys. It pulls as a bold lavender with some pink reflects but remains very cool toned – it’s dope. The lip balm ($5) is also a lovely but metallic lavender with some blueish violet in it, as well.
#RoseQuartz ✨ Last but absolutely not least is the priming spray ($6) for dry skin. This one has apple extract for that dose of moisture you need before applying makeup as well as grapefruit extract which is packed with antioxidants & vitamins (you skin will thank you later). The highlighter ($9) in this shade made me die – it is STUNNING in every possible sense of the word. It’s a true rose gold with pink sparkle – this one is by far the most wearable and will certainly suit the most skin tones. You are going to be blown away by this one guys. Lastly, the lip balm ($5) is a similar metallic pink & gold duo chrome.

Colourpop Crushed Crystals Collection 3

Now that you know who the fam is, peep these deets:

ALL of these products include ACTUAL CRUSHED CRYSTALS – how luxurious does that sound?! I’ve never really felt that my makeup was missing ground up gems, per say, but now that CP mentions it… this sounds necessary. We haven’t heard much regarding the setting/priming sprays in the way of extending the wear time, so we’ll have to get back to you on that. The lip balms, however, are said to be super lip loving & hella moisturizing – plus they’re super versatile! You can wear them alone OR over lipsticks to add that bomb topper that is all kinds of trendy right now. And, alas, what you are all probably the most excited about – the liquid highlighters. These look truly incredible! They can be mixed with your foundation to add serious glow or can be worn as a traditional highlighter. I know many of us are not into liquid or cream highlighting and contouring but… this might be that product that changes our minds forever.

Each trio (spray, highlighter & balm) will be sold in family bundles for $18 ($20 full price) – not a bad deal if you’re in love with all 3 from one set. Otherwise, feel free to mix & match! Ahhhhh, I can’t even decide what I’m going to pick up – let me know what you guys are thinking – help a girl out!

Colourpop X IluvSarahii: Pressed Powder Palette & Liquid Lipsticks

Colourpop X IluvSarahii Pressed Powder Palette

We can’t deny it – we LOVE collabs! We have been anticipating this one for WEEKS now & are sooooooo excited to announce that Colourpop is releasing what is possibly one of the most exciting collabs of the summer with ILuvSarahii on Wednesday, 5.24! The collection will include two Pressed Powder Palettes in shade combos Saucey Chic-y & three new Liquid Lipstick shades Mamacita, Curvii, and 951 – let’s get into this.

Colourpop X IluvSarahii Pressed Powder Palette

The packaging of these palettes is where we HAVE to start – those sleeves though! We love them not only for the gorgeous design, but also because they’ll protect the palette itself! We love that! The color combos in each of these palette is AH-MAZING! Saucy is a cool toned mix of pinks & peaches with some really incredible mattes. The palette will feature Heavy Gleam (Metallic), Razy (Matte), Chic Happens (Matte) & Lit (Metallic). Razy is that perfect brownish mauve that we would totally load up all over the crease for a super soft, blow out effect. The Chic-y palette contains slightly more wearable, neutral tones that we are totally falling for. There’s Vivacious (Metallic), Distressed (Matte), Freckles (Matte) & Noche (Matte). Mmm, we know all you matte lovers are drooling now knowing this set is mostly those – how perfect! This is a palette made for every skin ton & every eye color.

Colourpop X IluvSarahii Liquid Lipsticks

Lippies are always the highlight of CP collections – these are no exception! Each shade comes in a different formula & includes as matching Lippie Pencil! We have Curvii in the Ultra Glossy formula ($6)951 in the Ultra Satin Formula ($6) and Mamacita in the Ultra Matte formula ($6)! These are literally blowing our minds they’re THAT stunning: Mamacita is a suuuuuuper deep burgundy wine shade. This may not scream SUMMER at the top of its lungs, but we can get down with vampy lips any time of year. Plus, we love that they chose this to be the matte shade – there’s something about a crazy deep, matte shade that we can’t resist. 951 is the mid-toned, pinkish mauve nude. This one is your wear everyday, everywhere lip, for real. And you already know Ultra Satin is my jammmmmmm so I’m all over this one like Jefree Star is on his hunky man candy. Lastly, we have the Ultra Glossy lip in Curvii that literally everyone will adore! This peachy nude goes flawlessly with nearly any lip! The formula of these is so pigmented that you could even wear it on it’s own! Imagine it toped of 951 – I see my new fav lip combo coming up!

If the above swatches aren’t enough or if you’re just dying to see more of this awesome collab, Sarahii did a full swatch and overview video on her YouTube channel – check it out below!
