I’m back lovelies after a week of absence! If you caught my previous Colourpop haul video, I did mention that I will come up with separate reviews vis-a-vis makeup looks for the newly released Lux Lipsticks (I have ten shades in all), Double Entendre Shadow Palette and In Nude Endo Pressed Powder Highlighter. For reference, Colourpop is cruelty-free but not all their products are vegan but these particular items I bought are all vegan as indicated in their website (check out my last month’s favorites).
It’s been years since I purchased from Colourpop largely due to their shipping issues that’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I received my orders in less than a week so I guess things have dramatically changed since then. It’s easy to hoard their products like there’s an apocalypse happening because their price point is unbelievably affordable. Of course, makeups are the least priority in the name of un-dead pandemonium but you get what I mean. With makeups so cheap, it’s easy to get carried away!
Let’s start with the widely popular Lux Lipsticks. At the time of my purchase, I noticed that there were several sold-out shades so I ended up with a “blind purchase”. I am not really concerned if the available shades will suit me or not because lipstick in general (or makeup for the most part) should be fun. Each tube retails for $7 and the starry rose gold packaging (outside and in the bullet itself) is notably eye candy. The feel, finish and texture are all consistent in all ten shades except for two that smells waxy (Sitting Pretty and Lay Over). Being that I tend to get excited and then mellow down after a purchase, I challenged myself to get “creative” and wore eye makeup to work for five straight days. I am typically lipstick-tinted-moisturizer-mascara-highlighter-kinda-lady but I really want to get back to wearing eye makeup again so I took inspiration from these lipsticks. This was really my Monday-Friday FOTD from last week. I also used the pressed highlighter powder and eyeshadow palettes (as photographed above) in all five looks. Let me know which one is your favorite.
Monday: Uno Mas Lux Lipstick
Tuesday: 27 Lux Lipstick
Wednesday: Humble Pie
Thursday: Sitting Pretty
Friday: WYD Ultra Matte Lip
Stay tuned for Part 2 of Colourpop FOTD. As I write this post, they have an ongoing promo “buy for only $12 (4 shades) + free palette”. I am curating my purple eyeshadow favorites, would you like to join me?
