I have been doing really well on my Makeup Spending Challenge (you can read more about it here) so that is why you haven’t been seeing many posts on new cosmetics lately. However, when I got the email for ColourPop’s Spring release, I literally couldn’t contain my excitement and I couldn’t resist. I was particularly taken by one of the five shades so I figured I would get at least four for my collection. Now, if you have been following me a while – you know that when it comes to ColourPop I have quite an addiction – especially for the shadows… so I knew it would be a warranted purchase… lol.
The colors I choose and ordered were: Luckfully, Wattles, Flower Shop and Belladonna Lilly. When I seen Belladonna Lily I thought instantly of my friend Beth (Pearlznlacebybeth.com) because she wears that type of shade so nicely and of course, Flower Shop was a love at first site. Let’s take a deeper look at each shade, shall we?
Luckfully is a bright cobalt blue with a pearlized finish. It’s absolutely gorgeous and perfect for deepening out the crease or used all over the lid for a stunning look. This shadow does stain the lids a little though… so I would suggest using an eye shadow primer underneath and prior to applying the shadow to your eyes lids.
Wattles is described as a dusty beige pink in a satin finish. I actually think the color reminds me of a dusty rose with a brown undertone… but that’s just me putting in my own input. This is a gorgeous shadow to use in the crease or as a transition shade and also works well on the lid or blended onto the lower lash line. It has a gorgeous sheen that looks like it has a bit of shimmer, but not glittery.
Flower shop is my favorite out of the four. It reminds me of MAC’s steamy, though I would not consider it a dupe, it just reminds me of it. It is described as a vibrant blue green with a soft gold pearl on top and a pearlized finish. To me, it reminds me of a mermaid or her tail. It’s a gorgeous shade of teal and turquoise blend with a gold/silver shift… or at least, that’s my take on it.
Belladonna Lily is a gorgeous pastel shade. Described as a soft pastel aqua in a matte finish – this shadow would make a great base for Flower Shop or used on it’s own. It has that pastel but powdery aqua look and feel to it and would be one of those shades perfect for Spring. Used with Wattles or any of the other shades I picked up, I think this would make a great addition to any eye look this Spring or Summer.
If you are like me and love a great teal shade, I highly suggest picking up Flower Shop. I have mentioned this quite a few times already, but it is my favorite color out of the four I picked up. I don’t have any eye looks to share with you at this time, but I cant’ wait to share some with you once I start feeling a little better, so stay tuned for those.
