Huge Colourpop Haul and Swatches!


So, I just made an order for Colourpop a few weeks ago and I am so not guilty about it. I mainly got products from the lip section because it is infamously known for their great quality and value. I mean $6 for something of that caliber. Damn!

The Colourpop has recently branched out too a bunch of other beauty ranges like powders, highlighters, eyeshadows and a ton of different collaborations with well-known beauty aficionados. But they are mainly known to have a wide range liquid lipsticks that range from Ultra matte lip, Ultra satin lip, Ultra glossy lip, Ultra metallic lip, Lippie Stix and many many more.

Since I had the chance to order some, I had to narrowed down the products that I wanted to what I actually needed(basically the shades that I can use to work everyday). I previously purchased Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper and the Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park, and after some testing I thought that the formula of the Satin Lip was WAY more comfortable to wear than the Matte Lip.

DSC01198Let me start with the Lippie Stix shades… The Colourpop Lippie Stix in Boys Town Creme is a great rich creamy nude shade. This has got to be the most comfortable one of the bunch. Then the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte is a matte dusty rose color. It isn’t too pink toned, which I like. While the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Hype Girl Matte is a bit to barbie-esque for me. I shall wait for a fancy dress party and try to pull of a Barbie make up look then!

For the liquid lipsticks, I was generally going for more of the Satin Lip spectrum. The Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso, I found was a (sort of) dupe for the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte. The Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Chi is a more brown nude but not too brown that of the Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper. It reminds me of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow, but a tad bit darker. While the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Aquarius is a light pink-ish nude, not too barbie for my taste!

The cherry on top of all these has got to be the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money! It’s color pay-off is mind blowing! When you look at it with the packaging, it looks like a powder, but when you actually swatch it, it feels like a cream! It was love at first sight with this one! Watch out for some instagram looks with this new highlighter!

The Balm Liquid lipstick review


I am currently wearing this lippie as I am writing this review. I honestly did not know that The Balm have come up with liquid lipsticks ever since I received these. But to my surprise, the wear of it is quite pleasant and comfortable.

Now lets get down to the nitty gritty… The The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in Loyal & Doting that I have is nice.. It is wearable, comfortable and travel friendly. But the thing for me that separates it from other liquid lipsticks is that, it has a certain menthol scent on application. I also feel a little bit of sticky-ness on my lips when I do the thing you do when you apply lipstick. But pleasantly sticky nonetheless.

In terms of product transfer, there is not so much that it would be a problem. You have to give it time to dry first until you try to kiss a baby or something. But when it comes to lasting power, I couldn’t be too sure because I have definitely tried better in my day. But this can be a good option that is readily available in the market.

If you, my readers were to ask me which of these two are my favorite, it has to be Loyal! I love a good and lasting red liquid lipstick!

February Favorites


For this month’s February faves, I have basically posted about the products I have been using on the daily to work and the bits in between. There are definitely some hidden gems in here. So start reading! x

Maybelline Master Sculpt on 01 Light/Medium is clearly the first one on my list of faves this month. Just incase you missed it, this is the review I made on it recently. Long story short, this definitely exceeded my expectations. everyone should grab this palette. Immediately. After an OKAY review of the Rimmel London Match Perfection on 040 Soft Beige, link here! I decided to throw it in my makeup regime before work and to my surprise, it worked out quite well. The Soft Beige shade works well under my eyes to balance out my dark circles without it looking too heavy.

dsc09775I don’t think I have ever worn a liquid lipstick as much as I have with Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow. Aside from Kat Von D liquid lipsticks to be on the comfortable wearing side, this shade is SO wearable for a normal work day. It isn’t too bear nor too dressy. LORAC Pro To Go has been in my drawers for a considerable amount of months and I thought maybe this month, I should put more effort on my eyes to hide my veiny lids. My most used shades in this palette have got to be Shell and Cafe for the day time and then adding in Chai for the night(rarely). Link to a review I made a while back here!


I always do this, to help make use of all my lovely mascaras, I pick one mascara to use for the whole month and this time, it was the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara. It gives a visible lift and is waterproof. What more do you want?

In terms of skin care, I restocked with the Maybelline Micellar Water(review on this coming SOON!) to remove my makeup and Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser to further clean everything off my face.
