I am very excited to write this post today as I have been testing some very affordable makeup items and Spoiler Alert: They are amazing!!!
I purchased three Fleur de Force Lip Glosses. They are such a nice consistency, thick but not gloopy, moisturising and so pigmented!! From top to bottom I have Written in the Stars, Seeing Stars and Starlight.
Out of the three, Starlight is less pigmented but still so pretty!! Its an awesomely wearable peach. All of these has a pleasant fruity scent but its nothing too offensive.
Colourpop! is fast becoming one of my favourite e-tailer for makeup. Seriously, they are amazing!!!
I don't love all the products but that may be because I have chosen some colours which don't suit me.
First up is my beautiful, gorgeous Where The Light Is palette by Kathleen Lights (a youtuber). I love this collaboration and I can not wait to get the sister quad which is called Where The Night Is. Each of the eyeshadows and lippie stix and lippie pencils are 5 USD each. The blush and bronzers are 8 USD each.
The shades from left to right are Glow (matte), Cornelius (matte), KathleenLights (pearlized), and Blaze (metallic). I am seriously in love with these. Glow is not quite as amazing as the other three (it is slightly harder and drier than the others) but it is still a really great eyeshadow.
I didn't think I would ever love cream eyeshadows THIS much but I do. These combine the best of both cream and powder eyeshadows. Super strong pigmentation, lack of powder kickup (game changer!!) and stays put for 8 hours WITHOUT primer on my very oily eyelids.
The lip products that I got are (from left to right) Button Lippie Pencil, Lumiere 2 Ultra Matte Lip, Lumiere Matte Lippie Stix, Frenchie Lippe Stix, and Frenchie Lippie Pencil.
Physicians Formula has some of the best bronzers in the drugstore and I have been seeing some awesome reviews of their Shimmer Strips so I bought one on sale in Priceline (AUD 14.95)
It is a nice product, but it won't replace my current highlighters (Becca, Guerlain and Hourglass).
See my swatches below. The shades are quite powdery and I am not a huge fan. So devo.... Even applied lightly, this thing gives you a very strong highlight (almost frosty) effect. I wish the powders were more finely milled. Oh well.
Hope you like my first impressions. I highly recommend checking our Colourpop! as they ship to Australia and they are so affordable.
