Hey Ladies! I hope everyone is doing well. I am so giddy and excited! It is my first time to try an eye shadow palette from Colourpop. Yes, I know I’m a bit late on reviewing this, but it’s not stopping me from sharing what I humbly think that may actually help, so here it goes..
My recent big purchase from Colourpop led me to buy these 4 Eye Shadow Palettes … Two are on the list of Best Sellers and the other two are part of the collaboration of Colourpop with one of my favorite Youtube influencer, Kathleen Lights.
The palette retails for $16 US (58.76 UAE Dirham) (839 Philippine Peso) plus tax if you are buying from US and plus Customs Duties outside US.Palettecontains 12 colors which are mostly in warm coppers and rich mauves which actually complements medium skin tone very much, and I believe light and dark skin tones as well.

Going through the whole collection, I picked out 3 items which I know I will be using a lot, and these were 3 shades of the Crème Lux Lipsticks in Belle, Ariel and Snow White.


Funny how the shades that I picked corresponds to my favorite Princesses.


Let’s talk about the packaging; each item is in a beautifully designed box with a sketch of their respective princess which is actually really well done.

The lipstick container itself if made of a brass-like metal finish and it has some weight on it which gives it a very lux feel. It has the different names of each princess printed on the container.


Swatched each lipstick on my arm and this is with flash..

IMPRESSIVE!!!!!…

As I aged in the last years, I have changed my makeup routines which depended on many factors,main one was my skin condition.I love the no makeup – makeup look and if I can avoid using a foundation it makes me the happiest.
One thing though that I always use and never ran out of are highlighters. They are essential for me. From my latest order from Colourpop I decided to try their Highlighters.
Super Shock Highlighter in Wisp

These were as per the recommendations of Kathleenlights, one of my favorite OG Youtuber, and they are best for medium tone skin. Sooo.. why not?
