Colourpop Ooh La La Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches!

Ooh La La is a little monochromatic pink 9-pan palette by Colourpop. If you like pink eyeshadows and have been looking for a cute little palette this one is great!

Also, Colourpop know how to do monochromatic right. Monochromatic palettes tend to have very similar looking shades very easily, but you won’t get bored looking at this palette. Sure, there are mostly pink tones pop of a few other things, but they are different enough not to look boring.

Even the packaging is bright pink. As usual with Colourpops 9-pans this one is also plastic. I prefer cardboard instead, so I wish they would transfer from plastic to cardboard in these 9-pans in the future. It would be more environmental friendly too! But for the moment they have stuck to plastic for every 9-pan they’ve released.

Inside you actually do get a mirror. With Sol and Mar which was the first 9-pans we did not get a mirror, but it’s been included in the later palettes without any changes in price. I can appreciate that! There are several formulas in the palette, for starters 5 gorgeous mattes. There is also one sparkly duochrome, two metallics and one shimmer.

IMG_20190508_184507_227.jpg

The quality is just as we have learned to know Colourpop. Mattes are pigmented, smooth and very easy to work with, and the metallics are so buttery smooth, rich and gorgeous. There are simply no duds in this palette and the quality overall is great, simple as that.

The only thing I have been wondering about with this palette is the shade “Tickled”. I know that the first time they released a super shock shadow in a palette apparently was in the “Sweet Talk” palette which came a while after this one, but still, the first time I touched “Tickled” I wondered if they put a super shock shadow in the palette. I have never read or heard anything to confirm that though, but the formula is for sure different than the others in the palette because it feels more like a cream/powder-hybrid and is very softly pressed. It also came slightly crushed when it arrived in the mail, but I just pushed the porduct together in the pan and it looked just fine, just like I have done with the super shock shadows so many times too! I guess we will be left kept wondering  because I can’t find anything to confirm this suspicion on their website. But, either way, “Tickled” is a super pretty shadow topper!

IMG_20190508_184436_145.jpg

As mentioned the quality of the shadows in this palette is great. I will only recommend this one if you only like pink though. Because if you want to do a look without a pink eyeshadow in it you are not really left with any options, but for all you pink eyeshadow lovers this palette is a steal!

Maybelline Snapscara Mascara – Review!

Maybelline usually have a good grip about mascaras. I don’t love all off them, naturally since they do different things for your lashes, but I have tried my share of great mascaras from Maybelline to know they know their business. For instance I am a big fan of the Total Temptation mascara, and they are one of my go-to drugstore brands for mascara if I want to gamble and try a new one. So off course the Snapscara mascara got my attention.

IMG_20190507_152627_853.jpg

The mascara claims to be super easy to put on and take off, hence the name Snapscara. It can be removed with just warm water and is supposed to give volume and definition to your lashes. Well, it’s easy to remove that’s for sure. You can remove it with warm water, but I have to say, using a makeup remover does make it disappear in a snap. Warm water works but it’s less…snappy.

IMG_20190507_152708_996.jpg

I don’t agree that this mascara gives volume. I haven’t had a mascara making my lashes look so natural as this does in a long time. It gives a bit of length, but it does not give much volume. They kind of make my lashes look very very natural, and voluminous is not a work that comes to mind. The whole look it gives is just very underwhelming. This is for sure more suited for someone who prefers a natural lash, and if you are one of those it could actually be great.

IMG_20190507_152647_435.jpg

Because despite the fact that I don’t really like how it looks on my lashes it does not smudge under my eyes, and it holds up pretty nicely throughout the day. No panda eyes in my experience which is pretty good for a mascara you can just remove with water.

For me personally this was a miss and I will not pick this one up again. I could totally see this working for someone who want a natural look, and value being able to just rub of the mascara in a quick shower without having to use makeup remover.

Have you tried this mascara? What are your thoughts on it?

Colourpop Oh Lala Eyeshadow Palette – 4 Makeuplooks!

One thing I realized was that it’s actually quite hard to do 4 looks with an almost monochromatic pink 9-pan palette. But I think I managed somehow to make 4 looks that don’t look too much the same.

The shades are lovely though, and pinks are great for blue eyes. Such a pretty little palette!

5 Colorful Spring Makeup Looks!

I love working on these kind of posts. Where I can take the time of the year or a theme (like rainbow looks) and have fun just playing around with colors and creating makeup looks. For me spring is a lot of color, flowers, pastels and fun looks. Arguably many of these could also be summer looks. I find it hard to separate those two to me honest, but pastel is definitely spring in my books!

I only managed to do 5 looks for this post. I initially planned to make a whole lot more, but in January things changed and I suddenly had to spent a lot of time packing down the apartment, and painting and fixing it for sale before moving and renovating our new home. So things have been so crazy busy until now. Hopefully I will manage to do a summer looks post with a few more entries than this.

What is your ultimate spring palette by the way?

My Makeup Collection 2019 – Foundations!

Yet another part of my makeup collection to go through. But tell me, what is your favorite foundation?

I still think my Guerlain Ligerie De Peau is my top pick, as it has been for a couple of years, but I have a lot of other great ones too!

I am not that into buying new foundations all the time, at least not as much as with eyeshadows and such, but I have a decent amount.

IMG_20190502_111432_935.jpg

First let’s go through my drugstore foundations. Now, I don’t mind paying the price for a high-end or even luxury makeup, but I still have a majority of drugstore (or drugstore priced) foundations.

  • Tolymoly Luminous Goddess Aura BB Crem.
  • Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation – F6.
  • Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation – F4.
  • Lirikos Marine Radiance Double Cover Foundation.
  • L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation 24 H.
  • L’Oreal Infallible 24H  Matte Foundation.
  • Wet N’Wild Photofocus Foundation.
  • A’Pieu Natural BB Cream.
  • Maybelline FitMe Matte + Poreless – 105.
  • Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation.
  • Revolution Fast Base Stick – F5.
  • Revolution Fast Base Stick – F4.
  • Colourpop No Filter Foundation.
  • The Seam Eco Soul Real Fit Foundation.

IMG_20190502_111509_375.jpg

I was actually surprised when I pulled out all my foundations to see that I don’t really have that many high-end ones. Don’t get me wrong, five is more than enough! As you can probably tell I have both my summer and winter shades here.

  • Guerlain Lingerie De Peau.
  • Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear.
  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup.
  • Clinique Superbalanced.

The total count is 19 foundations. Not that bad I think! That’s actually exactly the same amount as I had last year. Sure I’ve bought some foundations, but I’ve also finished some.

Do you know your foundation count?

Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Velvet Rose Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches!

Am I the only one looking at very cheap makeup with a bit of scepticism? I mean, how great can a 4£ palette be? I have been trying a few eyeshadow palettes by Makeup Revolution but I have been mainly picking more “expensive” palettes by them and steared clear of the 4£ Re-Loaded ones. I just had a hard time believing they could be any good. They were simply too cheap to convince me. In the end I picked up a couple to test out. One gets curious you know, and I also enjoy creating reviews an I figure it’s a good thing to test and review palettes from every price range.

IMG_20190501_170215_432.jpg

The Velvet Rose palette got my attention because of the delicate color selection. There is a nice mix of neutrals that somehow look very pleasing to the eye. Not just like any neutral palette. It is off course not their own color scheme. It is a dupe for Anastasia Soft Glam, which I also own and love. This will bot be a dupe post though, so I won’t go in depth into the similaraties, but to make it short; If you have Soft Glam you already own this palette (sort of).

IMG_20190501_165606_238.jpg

This palette has 15 shades in the simplest imaginable packaging. A clear plastic lid (that looks 10 years old in no time), no space between the shadows, not even shade names, just numbers. It’s clear that Makeup Revolution kept their cost low in this palette, and off course they had to if they should only charge 4£. Just don’t expect any fancy packaging. This one is as simple as it gets. The packaging simply just holds the eyeshadows together and thats about it.

IMG_20190501_175135_425.jpg

Out of the 15 shades, 9 of them are mattes, 4 of them shimmers, one golden foiled shade and a black with a matte base and tiny flecks of shimmer. The shimmer does not show up though so it works like a matte. It’s a good thing that the palette has so many mattes because that is for sure the best formula in the palette. I was positively surprised by how rich and pigmented the mattes are, and how easy they are to work with. They are for sure much better than what I expected and these shadows makes the palettes well worth it’s pricetag by far. You get some very good neutral mattes for just a few coins which is a great thing especially if you are on a budget, or just don’t see the point in spending to much money on makeup.

IMG_20190501_165751_492.jpg

The 4 mattes are a bit lackluster. I mean, they look more like satin finish shadows. Pigmentation is decent, and they perform nicely, I just like shimmer shadows to be more shimmery because in my mind these are more satins (and if they are supposed to be dupes for the shades in Soft Glam they missed the mark because Soft Glam has proper shimmer shades). They are off course more than usable, and if you like satin finish shadows than these is nothing wrong with these. I just personally was missing  bit of the glam.

There is one proper glam shadow in this palette though, and that is the foiled gold shade (second shade in the first row). Where the other shimmer shades are a bit lackluster this is even more than your regula shimmer. This is a stunning foiled shade that gives me ll the glam feels the shimmers could not give me. This is probably the one shade that made me go “wow!”. It’s not perfect though, because it does have a crazy amount of fallout, but look beside that and you get a gorgeous foiled shadow for half the price of what you pay for a foil in a single pan.

IMG_20190501_165512_206.jpg

So to make a quick summary: The packaging and the shimmers are lackluster, but the palette is well worth it’s 4£ for the mattes and the nice gold foil shade. I can see myself reaching for this palette again when I want a matte neutral look or for that gold so in the end I am happy to have tried the palette and will also happily keep it in my treasured collection.

If you are experienced with eyeshadows and have tried a bunch of high quality brands, or if you are used to indie brands that often have very intense pigmentation, then this will probably not be the best eyeshadow palette you have tried, and it’s by far not the best eyeshadow I’ve tried either. With that being said, this palette does however beat a ton of other drugstore eyeshadows avaliable from brands like L’Oreal, Maybelline and Maxfactor so within it’s price range I would still call it a bargain.

Have you tried any of the Re-Loaded palettes? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Makeup Revolution Glow Revolution Prime Set Glow Spray- Review!

While hunting for a new setting spray I stumbled upon this Glow Revolution Priming and Setting Spray by Makeup Revolution and decided to give it a go.

The first thing I noticed when I got the bottle in the mail was how big it was. It’s supposed to be a face & body spray so I guess a large amount makes sense. The bottle has a metal ball in it, and you have to shake it before use. It does have quite a lot of shimmer so you do have to shake for a while to get the fluid to be even.

IMG_20190430_101556_368.jpg

The first way I tried it was as a glowy setting spray. The spritzer is nice and distribute the mist evenly. Not the finest mist, but good enough to get an even application. But when this product says glowy it means it! Honestly it made me look like a golden tin foil figure. The shimmer is so packed in this spray that it leaves a very visible golden, shimmery film on the skin. I tried applying it a second time, but this time with just a tiny amount, but the result was still too much. It simply looks like you have gold shimmer all over your face. It doesn’t give a subtle glow, it makes your whole face golden and shimmery. I think the color is not that right for me either, being it is so visible I think it would look much more flattering on medium or deeper skin tones. It was way to visible on my light skin and I can imagine fair skinned people having a similar problem.

IMG_20190430_101435_171.jpg

So I figured I would try it as a priming spray since it’s supposed to work like that. I like using the Cover FX drops or the Iconic London Illuminating drops as a “primer” when I want some extra glow, so I figured that even if it was too intense for me as a setting spray, it could potentially be used under my foundation. It did look better than what it did as a setting spray but the shimmer is just not finely milled enough and you end up looking very glittery still. So I much prefer the highlighter drops, because even though they are intense the pearl is so finely milled it looks like glow and not glitter. This one just does not compare.

Final way of testing it was as a body spray. This is probably my way to finish this. It looks nice sprayed over your legs if you re wearing a skirt or a dress for instance. So I guess there is some way for me to use it (the 2 times a year I wear a skirt/dress). I would not recommend it though. This one is just too much, so unless you are actually looking for a body spray with an intense glow I would stay clear of this.

XOXO
