Shadow Sunday

This week’s “Shadow Sunday” features three shades of Colourpop’s Super Shock Shadow: Shining Star, Fame Game, and Moon Daisy, plus the crème gel liner in Kicker.

Shadow Sunday

This is a fairly simple eyeshadow look featuring the Colourpop Animal Crossing “Labelle of the Ball” palette…what I’m really excited about is my new Colourpop crème gel liner in Kicker! I’ve been looking for a silver eyeliner for a while, and I couldn’t wait to try this newly re-released formula. I’ve (surprisingly) gotten used to working with a liquid eyeliner, so this is going to take some practice, but I absolutely love the color!

Star Wars Day is almost here! In keeping with that theme, today’s “Shadow Sunday” features “The Child” palette from Colourpop Cosmetics. May the Fourth be with you!

Makeup for Mary Blair March

Mary Blair March is drawing to a close, but before it’s over, let’s take a look at the perfect makeup to celebrate one of Mary Blair’s most famous designs…”It’s a Small World!”

I was so excited when Colourpop Cosmetics unveiled a collection named after the ride at Disney that has the catchiest tune of all. It includes blushes, highlighters, lip stains (which I also have), and this gorgeous eye shadow palette. I waited to use it for the first time so it could be part of a Mary Blair March look…the colors are so beautiful, and I quite unintentionally ended up with a very Mermaid-y look:

I can’t wait to see the next Colourpop Disney collaboration!

Sartorial Saturday–ColourPopxAnimalCrossing

When Colourpop announced they were doing an Animal Crossing collaboration, I could hardly contain my excitement:

It felt like an eternity passed before I could place my order (actually, Ryan was the first one to get through to the checkout…yes, we were both at a computer in an attempt to make sure one of us could purchase the collection, because I was not going to miss out!), and another eternity went by before it arrived…but it finally did. It’s one of the cutest packages I’ve ever received:

And the individual packing is also adorable:

The collaboration includes a beautiful gold glitter, six lip tints, a super shock shadow, two blushes, and four mini eyeshadow palettes:

It’s my favorite makeup ever!

I’ve especially had fun playing with the eyeshadow palettes. I’m not particularly good at doing eye makeup (I’m still trying to figure out how to do winged eyeliner correctly, and don’t even get me started on my eyelashes!), but I created a look for each one of them.

I love to sparkle!

It’s been almost a year since I was first introduced to Colourpop, and it’s become my go-to makeup in that time (when I wear makeup, anyway…masking makes that a little challenging), but I never dreamed that they’d create a collaboration that is so perfect for me!
