Colourpop Colour Comparisons: Nude Eyeshadows

I’m putting my Colourpop addiction to good use!

Colourpop has recently taken the beauty world by storm.  This is awesome because they make incredible and innovative products however they only sell online and regularly change up their colour options (bringing out new colours and discontinuing old)…so sometimes it’s difficult to compare colours to see if a new shade is worth buying.

A couple weeks ago, I posted swatches of some of the Fall 2016 Colourpop eyeshadows.   The post got more readers then any other of my posts and I received feedback through my blog and social media sites that people appreciated the swatch comparisons.

So, I’ve decided to start a new blog series called Colourpop Colour Comparisons.  In these posts, I will be swatching and comparing Colourpop eyeshadows or lipsticks.   I have an embarrassingly large collection of Colourpop products, that I purchased myself, so hopefully they will he help you decide what products are worth spending your money on.

My Sephora VIB Fall 2016 Sale Haul

It’s that time of year again….the SEPHORA VIB SALE!

Twice a year Sephora launches a brief 20% off sale for their VIB and VIB Rouge Beauty Insiders (ie. second and third tier loyalty members).   I took advantage of this sale and picked up a selection of my beauty essentials, new favourites, splurges, an anniversary gift, and a free point purchase.

In today’s blog, I decided to only include images and descriptions (from the Sephora website) instead of including my full reviews and/or swatches of each product, like I usually do.  I thought this would be a great opportunity to hear from you about which of the listed products you would like me to review, swatch, compare to competitors…etc (not to mention, prevent this post from being insanely long).

Pinterest test #3: Purple Pizzazz Tutorial

I have been pinning eyeshadow looks and tutorials on Pinterest for YEARS but I realized that I haven’t actually tried any of the looks out…so, I’ve decided to challenge myself, by selecting my favourite pins to discover:

  1. If I can create this look with my existing makeup.
  2. If this look works well on my/a different eye shape and/or colour.
  3. How helpful the step by step images are (if any).
  4. What tips can I provide my readers to help you achieve this look.

Today’s challenge…

No matter what skin tone or eye colour you have, purple is flattering on everyone!   That’s why I selected today’s challenge, which I have entitled “Purple Pizzazz”.

On a day-to-day basis, I do wear touches of purple to line my lower lashes or add a pop of colour on the outer eye corner…but nothing this intense.

So although I was confident that the colours would look lovely, the big question was “would this be wearable” or just something artistic to look at online…I’d never know unless I gave it shot – so I did!

L’Oréal Revitalift Bright Reveal VoxBox

L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Influenster Voxbox

A couple months ago, I signed up for Influenster, a site where “social savvy shoppers” can stay on top of the latest product news, review products, and receive free products (“VoxBox”) based on their social media presence.

Last month, I received my second complimentary VoxBox – the L’Oréal Revitalift Bright Reveal VoxBox.  It contained a Daily Scrub Cleanser, Reveal Peel Pads, Overnight Moisturizer, and SPF 30 Moisturizer.
