1 Brand No Fuss FOTD – COLOURPOP

 

Hi guys! It’s been raining outside¬†so¬†it’s dark, gloomy and cozy morning as¬†I sat down in front my laptop to write this post. I¬†don’t know about you but¬†I’m elated when it rains. I love listening to the sound of the falling rain. Is it just me or anyone else like it too?

I’m bringing back 1 brand No Fuss #FOTD today. I actually have a lot of requests to either redo an old 1 brand makeup post or feature new brands¬†that I haven’t features before. I did a Colourpop haul and I nearly get everything I need to create this” No fuss” face of the day!

Products Used:

I’m not doing a full makeup tutorial so I skip the process of applying foundation and concealers. I¬†prep my face with Positively Ageless SPF 30¬†moisturizer¬†by Aveeno and then I go ahead to apply the¬†BB cream¬†from Lab Story which is my current favorite. They’re honestly the best I’ve tried. If you’re curious to learn more, simply¬†click here for more detailed review.

The first thing I gravitated towards were the eyeshadows. I absolutely love all of these shades.¬†They’re warm toned and perfect for everyday wear.

  • Paradox – warm satin burgundy red
  • Seeker –¬† warm matte reddish brown
  • Jinxie –¬†soft pearlized gold
  • Elixir – matte terracotta

My favorites has to be Paradox, Seeker and Elixir. These kind of shades are always my favorite because they make my eyes pop. It’s nicely pigmented and easy to apply. It doesn’t fade or crease throughout the day.

First I apply Elixir on my crease and blend it nicely. Then I go on applying Paradox on the lids. With the same color I smudge it out on my under eye area. I used Seeker for the outer corner while Jinxie on the inner corner and on the brow bone.

A water-resistant Cr√®me Gel in Bangin’ Brunette in true brunette brown. Packaging is a cute glass jar with white screw on the lid, and I‚Äôve always loved ColourPop‚Äôs holographic logo.

That aside, I really like the formula of this cream gel. The consistency is great, it’s creamy and easy to use. A little goes a LONG way with this.¬† It slides smoothly and sticks to the skin. I’ve black hair and¬†the shade “Banging Brunette” is perfect for me. I’ve no intention of switching for now.

  • First of, with Dope Taupe brow pencil spoolie I brush my brows up, used light and small strokes to outline the shape and when I’m satisfied with the shape I want, I got ahead to fill in any empty spaces or sparse areas with the Brow Colour Cr√®me Gel in Bangin’ Brunette.
  • As for my wing, I used Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Black since I misplaced the¬†Creme Gel liner I got from Colourpop.
  • I didn’t use mascara for this look since I’m going for the “no fuss” makeup #FOTD”.

This Brow Pencil is in the shade Dope Taupe. Each pencil is double-ended, with the pigment on one side and a spoolie on the other, leaving you with no excuse to not blend your color and brush your brows into shape. So brilliant!

Note that I barely pressed down on my hand with this pencil and you can totally see  a nice color payoff from it. It has a nice pigmentation and glide on amazingly.

It’s a spoolie that combs and brush very well.

Next is the Super Shock Cheek blush in the shade Quarters.¬†Quarters is described as a mid-tone dusty coral in a satin finish. This blush comes in a circle plastic container with a twist-up cap.¬†I find the texture of the blush very soft and almost creamy. It’s super soft to the touch and I feel like if I press my finger on the pan, it will leave a deep dent.

Fingertips will provide the highest amount of coverage. Color builds from natural-looking flushed look to more intense bright looks. This blush is very pigmented and buildable. Build to your heart’s desire!

I love Colourpop and I love this pretty shade. Perfect everyday color to wear this summer.

This is part of their Lippie Stik line. The shade I got is in Cami Matte X and it’s described as cool toned mauve. The packaging is of a white, slim and it’s a crayon lipstick. ¬†It’s a crayon lipstick but it’s not the typical pointed tip. It’s actually slanted as you can see on the photo below.

The formula of this lipstick itself is amazing. It’s super creamy and super pigmented. One swipe is all you need. ¬†There are different finishes of the Lippie Stix but Cami Matte X¬†comes in matte. Longevity as you may have guessed is unbelievable!

If you’re a matte lover, I think you’ll be really impressed with these textures. I’m loving this pretty shade and the formula.

These are intensely pigmented and apply evenly. Application is incredible and so is the opacity. It also doesn’t feel anywhere near as dry as the other brands¬†I’ve. It feels comfortable on the lips. I love it so much that I want a few more… hahaha!

MOTD

I use my fingers to pack the color on the cheeks. I just use it lightly and it can last up to 5 hours.

This is the finish look.¬†Hope you enjoyed this “no fuss” face of the day! I really like the way everything came together.¬†While this look is fun and has pops of color, I think it is still very wearable.

Conclusion, you¬†just can’t go wrong with Colourpop makeup products. I think it’s a must-buy ¬† If you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up or comment. Let me know your requests for future 1-brand “No Fuss” looks!

Have you picked up anything from this brand lately? Did you know that Colourpop is bunny approved. Meaning they test their products leaving fur babies to be fur babies, they’re cruelty free?

Wanna spice up some eye makeup look with a cat liner look. I’ve some simple and easy steps that anyone can do. Okay, I’m not a master beauty guru but here is what I learned throughout my blogging experience.

Here’s how …¬†a step-by-step tutorial:

  • I’m using the Liquid Eyeliner by LA Colors in Black.¬†

  • Apply eyeshadow on lid. Here I used a very light shade in Bare by LA Colors. Start lining from center of lid towards the outer corner, stop after drawing 1/2 ” or so- as shown.
  • Continue to line straight out. Make sure the end doesn’t exceed the end of your eyebrow tail.

  • Now join the end of the line to the outer end of your eye.
  • Line the rest of your eye starting from center to the inner corner. Try to make it thinner as it goes in.

  • Time to fill inside the lines now& tightline¬†the inner part of your eye now, so there’s no visible gaps.

  • DONE!

Only for this look did I applied eyeliner before eyeshadows. I’m using the Wet n’ Wild Color Icons 8-pan eyeshadow palette in Comfort Zone. I used the green and brown shadows which works magnificently. Up it with the beige color as highlighter. Touch up with mascara and I’m really to face the world!

Easy right! Go and¬†try it now and let me know what’s your experience like. Good luck!
