Colourpop Hi Shine Ultra Glossy Lips: Review, Photos, and Swatches

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Continuing on the Colourpop train, I have a review, swatches, and photos of the Colourpop Hi Shine Ultra Glossy Lips. This launch is their expansion of their original Ultra Glossy Lips line with a new formula promising an ultra shiny finish with jojoba oil to add moisture. These new Ultra Glossy Lips come in three finishes, Pearlescent, Prismatic, and Tinted. This is in addition to the existing Creme, Metallic, and Sheer finishes.

Colourpop Hi Shine Ultra Glossy Lips

I think we are going to be seeing the resurgence/renaissance of lipgloss because there have been a few brands who have released new lip glosses in the past few weeks. I wasn't very interested in their first launch of the Ultra Glossy Lips because I was riding the "liquid lipstick" train and the idea of a gloss wasn't appealing then. After seeing the new colors and especially given the prices, I decided to get a few. 

I think you've been seeing how often I've been mentioning Colourpop on the blog and I swear, Colourpop could sell me on anything at this point. It's way too easy to justify buying from them when everything is between $4.00-$8.00 and I usually get my order in two days (since I'm in Southern California).

Colourpop Lux Lipsticks: Review, Photos, and Swatches

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review, photos, and swatches of six Colourpop Lux Lipsticks, three of the Creme Lux Lipsticks from the original launch four months ago and three of the new Matte Lux Lipsticks that launched recently. I had been thinking about getting the lipsticks when they first launched but never got around to it until the Matte Lux Lipsticks launched and they were doing a buy two get one free promotion. I ended up getting six lipsticks for the price of three! These are quite inexpensive and in line with Colourpop's usual pricing, $7.00 each.

Maybelline TattooStudio Brow Tint Pen Makeup Review: Is It the Alternative to Microblading?

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of the Maybelline TattooStudio Brow Tint Pen Makeup. The brow pendulum is swinging again and nowadays people are into brows that can look like they're real (which is why tattooed brows like microblading has become popular) over more "done" brows with pomade and concealer. This multi-pronged brow pen is supposed to be the answer to getting naturally filled in looking brows by giving off the effect of natural hair-like strokes.

Looking at this brow pen, I can't help but think of those three pronged eyeliner pens that were supposed to make eyeliner easier for beginners but ended up being more trouble than it was worth. The question is, is this a dud like its three pronged predecessor?

Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to share my thoughts on the Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush. I've talked about skincare before on the blog but this is the first mention of any sort of skincare device. 

I first heard about Foreo when they launched their LUNA cleansing brush, especially since it seemed like a great alternative to the Clarisonic facial cleansing brush (which was dominating the skincare device scene). The Foreo LUNA intrigued me because it didn't deal with a brush/bristles but with silicone points instead. Of course, the price was too much for me to afford on a graduate student budget so I admired from afar. 

Later on they launched the LUNA Play, a mini version of the full size but I was not interested in a device that only had 100 uses for $39.00. Finally, they launched their Luna Play Plus which is a miniaturized version of their full size LUNA cleansing brushes and a better version of the LUNA Play. Combine it with the ULTA 20% off sale and I picked up the Luna Play Plus.
