Amanda Steele x Colour Pop

I’ve been meaning to swatch this forever long. The Amanda Steele collection was the first collection to release with pressed shadows. I was hella excited about this but I don’t know, the colors weren’t calling my name. They’re pretty muted and I love muted cool toned shades but for whatever reason, the palette wasn’t calling me. However, the super shock shadows and the ultra matte lip were screaming my name. Had to get these babies. 


The shadows:


Ignition:


Ignition is a glitter lavender. This shade is absolutely gorgeous. There’s so much glitter in it. Sooooo much. I really want to top this over lipstick. Gorgeous. 

Hydroplane:

Hydroplane is a glitter teal. This is another pretty glitter shade. Pounds of glitter. I lahv it!!!!

Chaps:




Chaps is a deepened aubergine or eggplant. I really really really love this shade. This is a really dark purple without a heavy blue undertone. Looks so amazing, in love with it. I love true purples like this. 


These colors are so beautiful. And I’m super in love with the details on the packaging. I’m totally keeping the cardboard lol. Colour Pop is really doing better with collab packaging. I was really happy with it. 

This was just a quick little swatch. I wanted to show you favorite of the collection. And hopefully this helped in decision making. And don’t be afraid of that purple lippie! She is your friend! 

As always, thanks for reading and stay purple! 

Colour Pop Love Collection 

Back again! And with the collection I was super excited to get my hands on. The Colour Pop Love Collection was high on my list of things to get. The packaging is completely adorable. It’s an envelope that opens up and looks like a love note. And they released some new super shock shadows and I will never not love how amazing they feel. 

So I got four out of the five pressed shadow sets and three of the super shock shadows. The packaging was limited edition, but they are releasing them as singles. I’m not sure if they are permanent or what. A lot of these are sold out. I definitely have no regrets at all. All these shades are like spectrums of my soul. They are really catching me this year with these Valentine’s Day makeup collections. 

Now let’s go see what our boyfriend (my debit card) bought us:



Apple of My Eye:


Say I Do is a matte baby pink. 143 is an intense matte deep lilac. 143 has my whole heart omg. 

Boyfriend Stealer:


Dreamboat is a matte dusty rose. Pretty Cruel is a matte berry mauve with gold flecks. 

One of A Kind:


Going Steady is a matte dusty wine. Pinky Promise is a metallic wine. 

Two To Tango:


Double Date is a metallic lavender. This killed me. Gagging. Two Much is a matte medium plum with gold flecks. 


The pressed pigments are very pigmented. You have to be careful because it’s almost too velvety and they chunk up. That’s why some swatches look messy because I’m blending out the chunks. But honestly so worth it. I love these shades. Like yaaaasssss. These shadows along would be like my perfect everyday palette. 


Baby Talk:


Baby Talk is a matte red blue. 

Fooling Around:


Fooling Around is a bright metallic red. 

Keeper:


Keeper is a matte deep fuschia. This was apart of the new foursome set but I only wanted this color. 


These shades are so damn gorgeous. I’m really loving the bold red eyeshadows that are trending right now. I don’t have a lot of variations of red eyeshadows. So I’m seriously happy these are in right now. I cannot wait to use these, they look so pretty. I’m into bright blown out eye looks right now. 

Well hope this helps in making your decisions. These guys are so worth the wait. No regrets. I hope you guys like Valentine’s Day makeup collections. More are coming your way. 

Thanks so much for reading and stay purple. 

Colour Pop Pressed Shadows- Lo-Key and Hi-Maintenance Palette 

If you have been living under rock, then you have to know about Colour Pop’s pressed shadows. I don’t think I’ve been waiting for anything more than these to release. And I really have been waiting for them to reach me, literally two weeks for them to ship to me. These babies have been anticipated for a long time. Their super shock formula is a little hard to work with but the formula is super unique and opaque. With that said, I swatched all my Colour Pop eyeshadows to remind us all why we love them so much. It definitely rekindled why I would continue to buy both formulas. And at $5 each you can afford to. And honestly, I have fallen in love with these pressed shadows. 

So let’s get into some swatches, a small trick, and a makeup look. 


Lo-Key and Hi-Maintenance palettes:

These palettes were on everyone’s list and I knew I had to get my hands on these babies. These are their first palettes to release and the shades are very on trend. And they sold out like twice. They are also sold individually. And I’m honestly glad I did get them. 

Lo-Key palette:


Take It Slow:


Take It Slow is a metallic warm champagne.  

I Owe You:


I Owe You is a matte mid-tone orange. 

Running Late:


Running Late is a matte creamy orange. 

Criss Cross:

Criss Cross is a matte brick orange. 

These shades are on trend with the peach craze right now. This is as close as I’ll get to that trend. 

Hi-Maintenance palette:


Just In Time:


Just In Time is a satin soft gold. 

High Strung:


High Strung is a metallic dusty rose. 

Get Out:


Get Out is a matte cool cranberry. 

Cute Alert:

Cute Alert is a matte deep burgundy. 

This trend I will always love, those marsala wine colors. Love this shade range. 
Loose Shades:


Come and Get It:


Come and Get It is a duchrome rose  with a gold flip. 

Paper Tiger:


Paper Tiger is a matte mustard shade. 

Making Moves:


Making Moves is a matte hot coral. 

Stay Golden:


Stay Golden is a matte raspberry. 

Popular Demand:


Popular Demand is a matte red brown. 

Silver Lining:


Silver Lining is a matte dusty purple. 

Lost and Found:


Lost and Found is a matte sky blue. 

Piece of Cake:


Piece of Cake is a matte dusty indigo. 

These are all swatched with my finger and without a primer. Some of the lighter matte and metallic shades were a little less pigmented. But honestly, these are fuckin amazing. The pigmentation, especially of the colored matte shades, are so crazy. Literally, a few swirls, and pigmentation heaven. And I have used these on a brush and they’re amazing. There is some kick up to them but it’s fine. I love them. Ignore the bad eyelash job. I’m so bad at putting them on. I used the Lo-Key palette, Come and Get It in the center of my eye. I picked up the shade on the brush, sprayed it with setting spray, and did the metallic ever pop. These pics do them no justice. I also layered with Silver Lining which blended out nicely with the red. You basically can’t see it. I love this look so much. I used Wisp highlight and Mimmy ultra matte lip. 

Time for a little trick. I’m almost mad I haven’t thought of it myself. As you noticed my palettes hold more than the standard 4. I saw some girl on Instagram had taken out the foam, a whole metallic strip is underneath. This makes its hold 10 shades instead of just four. I only feel dumb that I didn’t think of it myself I’d because I’ve taken apart all my other kits and use them to hold the lippie stix. And it holds about 16. 


And once you take out the foam, there’s some glue underneath. You just take it off and presto! Your palette just increased to take on 6 more shades and save a lot of space. They give you a free palette for every 4 you buy. I got 8 singles and for some reason I only got one extra palette. So I’m happy I saw this because it fit all my shadows and I have a palette leftover. 


And these are how the single shades come. I love the packet they come in, I wanna keep em. But I have no clue what to do with them. Hoarder problems. 

So if you have been debating on getting these, don’t. At least pick up 4 that catch your eye. The pigmentation is amazing and I love the color range. A little something for everyone. I cannot wait to see their Valentine’s Day collection, I’m gunna die. The sneak peaks are almost too much to bare. 

I hope this post has helped you with your decision making. If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask me. Thank you so much for reading and stay purple.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks so much for reading! Stay purple.

Thank you guys so much for reading and stay purple. 

Colour Pop Blushes

Hey guys I’ve been really ready to swatch my entire collection. I am on a mission. Also have a person goal of how many blogs I want to write this year. So now I am onto the Colour Pop Super Shock Cheek. When these blushes came out it was everything. Omg, giiiiirl. And I love blushes so much. Recently, they discontinued many eyeshadows along with a ton of blushes. They have about 16 blushes left. That is not a lot compared to what they used to have. I don’t know why they did that and if they plan on making a lot more this year. They didn’t really release a lot of blushes last year. Not a lot of collections had a one included. We shall see. 

I decided to swatch whatever is actually in stock first because what’s left is a small amount. And I have about half of it. 


Between the Sheets:


Between the Sheets is a beige pink in a matte finish. This is perfect for those no makeup makeup looks. 

Birthday Suit:


Birthday Suit is a neutral pink in a satin finish. I love the satin finish because they have a nice shimmer to them. You can’t see in this photo really well but this one has a lot of shimmer. 

Cheerio:


Cheerio is a deep cranberry in a satin finish. 

Cruel Intentions:


Cruel Intentions is a warm rose in a matte finish. This was apart of their Back to Cool collection.  

Fox:


Fox is a warm pink coral in a satin finish. 

Never Been Kissed:


Never Been Kissed is a deep coral in a matte finish. This was also in their Back to Cool collection. 

Rain:

Rain is a cooled toned lavender in a matte finish. This blush I was most excited for. This was apart of their Pastel Punch collection. 

These colors are all so beautiful. Hope this helps in choosing which of the blushes you’d like to get first. 


These are a bit hard to put on. I honestly hate putting on cream blushes because I am so bad at doing it. I feel like I never get full pigmentation. But I did find that using this Wet n Wild brush makes it a lot easier. It’s the small stippling brush. I love it because it’s affordable so you can get a whole bunch. I either put some on my cheeks first with my fingers and blend it out with the brush. Or I stick the brush right in and concentrate it on the ends. Or I do both for maximum pigmentation. 

The super shock cheek formula is a creme powder formula. They suggest that you use a flat synthetic cheek/foundation brush, or a duo fiber brush. They said the synthetic brush will give you more coverage whereas the duo fiber will be more sheer. And as always you can build up until you can get your desired pigmentation. 

I hope this helps with the application of the blush. I sure ain’t no makeup artist so anything that makes this easier is all the better. Thanks so much for reading and stay purple. 

Colour Pop Shadows- Purple, Purple, and More Purple

Hey guys I am back and guess what? I made it to the finish line! And so did you guys! Thanks for suffering through over 50 of my Colour Pop super shock shadows swatches. Say that 5 times fast. There was no way I could swatch them all in one post. It would be impossible for me to finish. I would’ve gone crossed eyed. My arm hurts from constantly removing the shadows and they stain like you won’t believe. It’s like hey, you haven’t even been on my arm that long jeez. 

I think a lot of these shades will be in stock, well at least more so than the others. You know me and purple, I have to have every shade. And I’ve used these the most so I’ll be able to tell you what I use most them for.
