    Colour Pop Cosmetics| Super Shocking High Color, Cruelty Free, Wallet Friendly A must Have!

    colour pop cosmetics shadows
    Hey guys! Let me start of by saying you need these shadows ASAP! Let me tell you a little fact about me. Instagram is my online shopping friend! I discovered Colour Pop Cosmetics about 2 months ago. I was so mesmerized with the swatches that I finally caved and picked up a few of them. All I have to say is WOW! They are like Candy. They’re the most pigmented eye shadows that I have ever seen in my life, you know I also let my readers know of the pigmentation in beauty products because it is extremely important to me.
    Now getting back to the amazingness at hand. COLOUR POP yes they certainly do pop. If you are looking for vivid ultra pigmented looks these are definitely your go to. They are a cream to powder finish, they blend seamlessly and once they set the don’t budge. Even after swatching and removing with a baby wipe the colour was still quite visible on my arm. There are about 55 colours witha quilted weave on top to choose from which includes
    They are considered to be pressed pigments, some not suitable for the eyes(just to cover the companies butt) because I have seen quite a few looks with the colours not approved for the eyes. Being that they are pressed, they are very smooth in texture more like a cream. It is recommended to use your fingers or a very dense flat brush to pack the colour on the lid and a fluffy crease brush to diffuse the harsh line. You get about 0.07 oz of product which will last you quite awhile because of the high saturation of colour you don’t need a lot. The packaging is super chic, even the box I received them in was cute. The Colour Pop team also sends along with your order a personalized note to thank you for shopping with them. Here is the best part, you would think after all the good things I have mentioned about Colour Pop that these shadows would cost alot right? Well no! they’re on $5 yes that is it!! you are getting quality makeup for a cost friendly price. With my order I was also able to pick their new Lippie Stix and liner that they were pre launching

    Review:

    The first thing that I would like to talk about it how user friendly the website is. It was easy to navigate, everything was broken down into groups to aid in a speedy and efficient shopping experience. At the time that I placed my order there was a special going on where you were sent 2 free lip products from their new line of liner and lipsticks that they were going to carry in the weeks ahead. Knowing this made me even more eager to place an order. Once I was finished picking my items and I was ready to check out I was on the hunt for the option to pick my 2 free lip products. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it so I pretty much just gave up and completed my transaction. Once I received a confirmation email, I was then sent another email telling me to pick 2 free lip items one lipstick and the liner to match the makeup gods were watching! Cuz they know how much I love lip products. I placed my order a few days into the month and I received it about 2 weeks and a few days later. It was kind of a long shipping process but I would assume that it was due to the fact that it was coming to a Canadian address.
    All my products were packaging in sturdy packaging with care along with a thank you note as I mentioned before. I was very satisfied with everything that I purchased as well. As far as the performance on the shadows I haven’t done any looks with them yet. But so far the swatches alone speak loud for me. They didn’t budge, all swatches were done without a primer too just to show how pigmented they are. Now I have heard that not all colours in the line carry the same colour pay off consistency but for the ones that I chose I would say that the only one that I have a tid bit of trouble with or could potentially need a little work is NONE lol I am completely happy with my choices.  If I could advise of one thing with the Colour Pop shadows is to close the caps tightly after use to avoid drying out and try not to drop them on a hard surface. As I was preparing this post to share with you all, I dropped too shy and it did start to separate from the edges of the pan. Would I buy these again? Yes! Would I recommend them? I sure would! for $5 you cannot go wrong. To check out more awesome colours that the Color Pop crew has to offer check out their website here

    Introducing Tweezerman Brush IQ + Giveaway Open to Canadians

    Over the summer I attended a Christmas in July event where a number of different items that will launch over the next few months were showcased. One of the launches that I was really excited for was from the tweezerman line. Now the world knows that Tweerzerman is known for the phenomenal performance of the tweezers. They will be launching their Brush IQ line in October, which is a line of 12 brushes that are crafted with patented technology and exceptional quality just like Tweezerman Tweezers.
    The Tweezerman Brush IQ line is made with DuPont Filaments which feel like natural hair but perform better than Natural hair.

    The 12 Brush IQ brushes within this line are 

    Brow Brush
    Finishing Contour Brush
    Blush Brush
    Powder Brush
    Foundation Brushes 

    • Flat top
    • Pointed
    • Foundation Brush
    Concealer Brushes
    • Pointed
    • Contour
    Shader Brush
    Line glider brush
    Blender Brush
     Tweezerman Brush IQ pointed concealer brush
    I was sent the pointed concealer brush which is amazing for applying concealer precisely. I like to apply the concealer with this brush right at the outer corners of my eyes to cleaner up liner and make the cat eye look more exaggerated and perfect. The pointed concealer brush is also perfect for concealing hard to cover blemishes because I was able to apply concealer using the point of the brush where I am able to pack the product on without it looking cakey.
    The brush itself is very sturdy and the bristles did shed at all during the first wash I definitely plan to pick up the rest of the line to add to my personal stash as well as my kit. the range price wise isn’t bad either. You can check out www.tweezerman.ca for more info on the Brush IQ line. In the meantime I wanted to hold a giveaway for a pointed concealer brush just for one lucky person to experience how amazing the Brush IQ line is. As usual follow the instructions to enter. Good Luck

    Calvin Klein Reveal Sensual Body Lotion Review

    Calvin Klein Reveal Sensual Body Lotion

    Calvin Klein fragrances have been around for decades. He always comes up with the most amazing scents for both Men and Women, most recently Calvin Klein launched their newest scent to the family called Reveal. Calvin Klein Reveal is the perfect take on sensuality. It literally smells soft feminine skin.
    The composition of ingredients were developed by two amazing perfumers Jean Marc Chaillan who is known for fragrances he developed such as Donna Karan Cashmere Mist and Micheal Kors Island Bermuda and Bruno Jovanovic who is known as a rising stars developing fragrances such as Micheal Kors Island Hawaii and Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria.
    The fragrance itself has very unique notes in them like Salt accords, white and black pepper at the top blend with the heart of powdery iris and ambergris. Sensual and rich sandalwood gives this fragrance the signature and constructs its base together with vetiver, sandalwood, cashmere and musk.


    I really love how the scent wears on me. My skin picks up alot of the Sandlewood note more than anything which is great with me as Sandlewood is one of my favourite notes in a fragrance. With the reveal collection there is a also a shower gel that I think is worth picking up and adding to extend the smell of Reveal once I put it on.

    Have you tried this fragrance? or any Calvin Klein fragrances? What is your fave? Let me know in the comments below
