Raving Red

Yesterday I wore IsaDora Twist-Up Matt Lips lip crayon in the colour Raving Red, it’s so vibrant! Like a bright, almost pastel red. Not at all rich and saturated like a classic red. Happiness in a colour!

Bichette

Before going to the hairdresser I snapped a picture of todays makeup, I’m wearing Bichette from ColourPop, such a perfect deep cherry red. Definitely vampy without feeling too blackened.

I have also rediscovered the Illamasqua Naked Rose blush, an old favourite of mine that I for some reason have neglected for a while. I’m not much of a blush person to be honest, especially not pinks. 9 times out of 10 I prefer just wearing a bronzer, and when I feel like wearing a blush it’s almost always a warm peach or apricot. Naked Rose is matte and neutral enough to not feel flushed, but it still creates a gorgeous balance on the face. Anyone with a light skin tone should own this!

ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix Swatches

Jag lämnade er med en tjuvkik för en vecka sedan, nu när jag tillfrisknat lite är det dags för riktiga läppbilder! ColourPop Cosmetics gör läppstift vid namn Lippie Stix, slimmade twist up-pennor som kommer i regnbågens alla färger och flertalet finishar. Till varje läppstift finns en matchande läppenna, s.k. Lippie Pencil, vilket är ett fullständigt genialiskt drag! Mer sånt tack. Sen att både läppstift och pennor kostar $5 (just nu ca 40 kr) styck är ju bara amazing.

Dessa färger är mina första fem, jag kan bikta mig om att fler är på ingång så betydligt mer ColourPop blir det! Jag har både i dessa och de kommande färgerna valt att matcha upp de mörkare nyanserna med läppennor för att de är svårare att applicera med raka snygga kanter. Ljusare nyanser använder jag ändå aldrig pennor till så där har jag skippat det, men de finns att köpa om någon av er gillar’t.

ColourPop Cosmetics hemsida skickar för tillfället inte till Europa (BUU!) även om det verkar vara i görningen, tills vidare går det att shoppa via amerikanska vänner eller något av alla företag som vidarebefodrar post, t.ex. Shipito. Det kostar lite mer men ger en möjlig mellanhand.

 

I left you with a sneak peek a week ago, now that I’m getting my health in order it’s time for real lip swatches! ColourPop Cosmetics make these lipsticks called Lippie Stix, slim twist-up pencils that come in a zillion colours and different finishes. For each lipstick there’s a matching Lippie Pencil which is the best thing ever! More of that please. Also the fact that both lipsticks and lip pencils are only $5 a piece is just glorious.

These five colours are my first, but I can admit that more is on its way so you will see much more ColourPop on here soon! I have chosen to match up the darker colours with lip pencils just because those are harder to apply neatly, both in this bunch and the next. I never use pencils with light colours so I’ve skipped that, but they are available if you’re into it.

The ColourPop Cosmetics website doesn’t ship to Europe (BOOO!) yet but it seems like it’s coming up, until then you can shop through American friends or any mail forwarding company, like Shipito. It’s a bit pricier but at least it creates a possibility.

Lippie Stix in Creature, Bichette, Frenchie, Lumiere, BFF. Lippie Pencil in Creature, Bichette.

colourpop lippie stix creature swatch

Creature. A GORGEOUS blackened burgundy red, matte finish, cool undertone. It’s more of a semi-matte and slightly sheerer than the other shades I have here so it didn’t apply perfectly on my bottom lip where I’m drier, and the slight translucency left it looking lighter along the edges. Nothing BAD though, just a regular problem with dark shades. In this picture I fixed the edges after application with Lippie Pencil in the same colour, it would look dangerously hot with a black pencil too. Bottom line: Don’t skip the pencil with this one.

Bichette. A matte deep wine red, cool toned. Barely matte in my opinion as it’s quite slippery and not flat looking at all. It has a slight translucency which makes it look juicy, but it doesn’t apply unevenly at all, this is without the pencil! The perfect deep cherry red.

colourpop cosmetics lippie stix frenchie swatch

Frenchie. Warm toned almost neon red, matte finish. Holy french fries, Batman! This is a flat matte lipstick in the most perfect orange toned red colour. Super easy to apply and makes SUCH an impact. Easily my favourite of these five. I didn’t get the pencil for it but it’s coming in my next order, it will be great for ensuring extra long wear and crisp edges, this one I’ll wear the heck out of.

Lumière. A dusty mauve pink, matte finish. A creamy, very opaque shade for those 90′s lips that seems to be hot shit right now. It’sa colour that would flatter almost any skintone, I’m really liking it actually! It’s dusty enough to not look like pink and cute, but it still doesn’t lean brown, thank the lawd.

colourpop cosmetics lippie stix bff swatch

BFF. Warm peachy nude, glossy finish. A wonderful 60′s peach colour, unmistakeably yellow toned which I really like. SUPER opaque for being so thin and glossy without actually looking too whitened. I won’t wear this one full on like this because it’s just too much for me, but dabbed on in a thin layer this is a great shade to tone down lips with. It would be 10/10 for me if it was matte, the glossy formula isn’t as fantastic as the matte in my opinion. Can’t wait to pair it with a big black eyeliner and peachy cheeks. Yum!

Same matte colour coded packaging as before, looks really nice!

The tips are slanted and really easy to apply with. From the left: Super Pink, Orange Pop, Raving Red.

Super Pink. More up my alley than the previously released pastel pink called Candy Pink, but this is still a tad too weak for my taste! It’s a bit too whitened and soft even though I love the undertone. It’s a question of taste though, many will definitely love this shade!

Orange Pop. So orange that my camera freaked out. Frickin AMAZING shade, true citrus orange.

Raving Red. The star of the show in my opinion, a.. light red? It’s not a classic red like I thought, it has more of a soft-yet-bright retro vibe. A hint of coral makes it super brightening and happy!

Moonlight

After todays post about the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks I took a picture of the colour Moonlight when worn all over the lids just to show you the 3D effect of these eyeshadows. I darkened the top lashline a little on the outer corner with brown shadow, but the entire dark crease/pale lid effect is just Moonlight. Best way ever to do super quick eyes!
