SO I finally got around to trying out the Brown Sugar palette and the After Shock lippie.
The lippie is super soft and has a really light texture while delivering vibrant color. It is also fairly long lasting. After Shock is a mauvy pink only bright. I think mauvy is the word…. Anyways I cannot wait to try other colors! This color is great and works with my day to day look and a night time look.
As for the eyeshadow – I think the formula is smooth and well pigmented. I use the Fenty Pro Filt’r eye primer and let me just say… that shit STICKS. I have to dab and smooth it out with my fingers, let it dry, and then blend fast. My Urban Decay Naked Basics was really hard to blend out with this primer for some reason, but the colourpop one blends so nicely. WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER BITCH haha
Brown Sugar has replaced my Naked Basics old and very used self.
I put the primer, eyeshadow, and my crazy $4 elf fake lashes, to the test.
I was playing with the palette and testing my skills with applying lashes when my friend called and invited me out. The following picture is me with only my eyes done so don’t judge me haha
OHKAYYY you can judge me a little 😛 I think it looks pretty decent haha
The lashes are SO DRAMA. I love / hate them. Everyone had a pretty good laugh over them, but I also received positive feedback. I will attempt more…I did manage to lose this pair though. I glued them on with the Sonia Kashuk eyelash glue from Target and it held well. I peeled them off around 7:30 this morning. I do not know where I left them… someone might run into a spider looking creature soon… For $4 I recommend getting them and having some fun! They do look cheap, but the price is right for learning or costume wear.
I fell down on the job and did not get a pic with full makeup on, but thats ok because the main focus is the eyes. I went on about my business and woke up this morning with full eye makeup. Fenty makes a dang good primer y’all.
It’s a little faded, but it can pass as light day makeup haha
I nabbed a $3 elf mascara at the grocery this morning on the way home – Mineral Infused Black Mascara. I put it on in place of the falsies. I think I like the other elf mascara better, but this is pretty dang good for such a price. Of course that is the lovely After Shock lipstick finishing off my next day makeup look.
Overall I’m really impressed with all of these products. The only expensive one is the Fenty, but its a decent amount and a little goes a long way. I highly recommend y’all give these a try! Or try different colors and palettes and let me know what you think!
The skincare line I’m trying with ColourPop is working out pretty well still and I think I would purchase a few of them in their normal sizes.
Thank you so much for reading and commenting! I love hearing your thoughts 🙂 this is a really fun project for me and I hope you get some joy out of it too.
