ColourPop "Where The Light Is" swatches!


Oh hello again!

I'm feeling the makeup fever coming back! Let's hope it lasts. I've been so out of the makeup 'loop' lately that I was late discovering ColourPop, but now that I have, I've become such a fiend. My most recent purchase was the 'Where The Light Is' set, which was inspired by a makeup blogger on YouTube.

(Be sure to click images from maximum awesome!)



The set includes 4 eyeshadow in individual jars and sells for $20.00 (USD)


The shades are: (descriptions from website)
Glow–(Creamy Vanilla / Matte Finish)
Kathleenlights–(Bright Golden Copper / Pearlized Finish)
Blaze–(Coco Bronze Sprinkled with Multi-Dimensional Glitter / Metallic Finish)
Cornelious–(Mid-tone warm caramel / Matte Finish)





Bottom of the jars:


SWATCHES!

In my blogging absence, I've grown very fond to more neutral shades, and this set delivers! As per usual with ColourPop, each eyeshadow is amazingly creamy and easy to apply, the eyeshadow feels like a pillow of heaven on your finger! 'Blaze' and 'KathleenLights' are beyond pigmented! The swatches you see were only one swipe of each eyeshadow. They are shimmery, bold, and lovely. They look almost as if they are foiled once applied, that's how pigmented and unique they are. 'Blaze' offers some sparkle which 'KathleenLights' is super shimmery; almost metallic. 'Glow' is the perfect matte highlight shade and 'Cornelious' is a great color to blend out and add to any neutral eye or to wear alone for something simple. I adore this set!

I have more ColourPop to show off soon! I've accumulated quite the collection so far. And I WANT MORE!

Jordana Cosmetics "Cat Eye" eyeliners.


PR SAMPLE

ZOMBIES!!

How is everyone? I can't believe I haven't made a blog post since Feb 12th! My life is insane and I'm super behind on blogging. When blogging becomes a chore, you know it's time to take a short break, which is what I decided to do. I'm currently in school now studying Criminology and raising my 3 kiddos. Life is pretty damn good, but super busy! I'd love to hear how all of you are doing!

Today on the blog, I will be reviewing the new "Cat Eye" liquid eyeliners from Jordana Cosmetics. I'm super stoked on these, especially for the price!

The description given to these eyeliners on the Jordana Website:
 
Cat Eye Liner
The Purrfect Cat Eye
•Lightweight, Long Wearing, Smudge-Proof Color that Lines & Defines Eyes
•From Novice to Pro; Easy To Use, Tapered Brush Applicator
•Smooth Application



They come in slender tubes with 0.057 FL OZ of product.  Cat Eye liner comes in 8 different colors and retail for $2.99 each (USD) which may vary.

The color of each liner is indicated on the bottom of the tube.
 

The applicator tip is thin and perfect for achieving 'cat eye' winged liner.


SWATCHES!



I've read a few reviews claiming these liners take a long time to dry. I didn't experience that at all with them. They dry pretty quickly and last FOREVER. A few of the colors, such as 'Envy' and 'Future' aren't very pigmented on the first swipe, but they are really build-able. 'Twilight', 'Orchid' and 'Caribbean' are AWESOME! I was able to get awesome color payoff with two swipes (apply one coat, let dry and then apply another) and my eyeliner last for a good 8 hours until I took it off. I really am quite impressed with these liners and for the price, you can't go wrong. You can find the eyeliners wherever Jordana is sold locally or online.

Have you tried the new 'Cat Eye' liners from Jordana? What are YOUR thoughts?
