The ColourPop Enchanted Palette is a purple palette with 12 shades of eyeshadows, pressed pigments and one pressed glitter in various finishes. It came out together with the ColourPop Fairy Well Palette and both of these have larger pan sizes than many other ColourPop palettes. Pans are 26mm in diameter and about 1/2 the depth of most of my other single shadows. The shades are magnetic but they won’t fit into some of their other palettes (like the Bare Necessities, Stone Cold Fox, etc.). This goes for $18 and is currently sold out but still listed on ColourPop’s website.
The ColourPop Fairy Well palette is true neutral palette that contains the types of shades that could be used for daily makeup or to use as a neutral pairing palette with other palettes or single eyeshadows. It has a range of textures and depths that make it versatile enough to use for very natural, barely-there looks or you can go super smoky and glam. There are 4 true mattes, 4 shimmers, 2 pressed glitters, and 2 mattes with sparkle.
NYX Bare With Me Blur Skin Tint Foundation is a medium coverage, matte finish foundation that comes in 24 shades. Its main claim is that it’s supposed to blur not just the look of texture and pores but also discoloration and imperfections. It is supposed to feel lightweight, have buildable coverage and leave the skin with a shine-free finish without being drying.
The ColourPop Sage The Day Palette, $14 at Ulta and ColourPop, contains 9 nature-inspired shades of green and brown. There are 4 true mattes, 4 shimmers, and 1 matte with sparkle. None of them are pressed pigments or glitters. The palette and pans are the same size as most of ColourPop’s previous 9-pans, like their monochromatic series.
Milani Stay Put Liquid Brow Wax is a product for shaping and holding brow hairs in place. It is a colorless wax and does not come in tinted versions but can be combined with other brow products (powders, brow pens, etc.) to add color. It similar in concept to a clear brow gel but feels different to the touch (not crunchy), and has more hold but remains flexible all day.
I picked up the new Milani Highly Rated Lash Extensions Tubing Mascara along with the other new products they came out with recently. Tubing mascaras are supposed to wash off with water in clumps instead of breaking down by liquifying. I’ve only seen this available in black and there is no waterproof version.
I have been on the hunt for a new sunscreen for a while. In my searches, this Australian Gold Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen caught my eye more than once. It is a mineral sunscreen that comes in 3 shades that are sheer enough to span a wide variety of skin tones and is supposed to have a matte finish.
