ColourPop Haul | KathleenLights Collab & More

When ColourPop sent out the email promoting their amazing Labour Day sale, I immediately jumped online to place an order. I've been waiting for the perfect time to pick up the latest ColourPopxKathleenLights products, and because I patiently bided my time, I got two free Ultra Matte Lips which is a fabulous deal!

Crème Gel Liner in Mr. Bing - Ever since these liners launched I've wanted to try them [I feel like I say that about every ColourPop launch], especially the bright shades. I picked up Mr. Bing to try out the formula first before I went all crazy and bought ten shades. Mr. Bing is a beautiful warm brown shade, I actually have nothing like it in my collection, which is awesome! I feel the warm undertone of the product really compliments the undertone of my skin. Also, I choose the pencil over the potted liner because I heard the formula was better, I don't need both, and I use pencils way more often.

 [L-R: Point Zero, Alyssa, November]
Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero - This super cool-toned brown shade is waaayy out of my comfort zone. But I bought it anyway because 1 I love supporting Kathleen's collabs and 2 I could use a little shove out of my comfort zone every once in a while.

Ultra Satin Lip in Alyssa - Dusty pinks are one of my go-to shades in the fall. I have a ton of other lip products in this colour family but, what's one more?

Ultra Satin Lip in November - I wish I picked up with warm peachy-pink shade when these first came out. Even though, I feel that it's more of a spring/summer shade, I plan on wearing this a ton this fall as well. Makeup has no rule, right?

[L-R: Time Square, Love Bug, Fairy Floss]
Ultra Matte Lip in Time Square - For some reason I cannot find this shade on the website anymore. Time Square is a deep rosy shade, this is another product that I probably have a ton of similar shades, but what can I say? It was free :) !

Ultra Matte Lip in Love Bug - This shade is the perfect terracotta in the tube, but swatched on my arm it appears much darker. I'm really into these kinds of shades this fall, at least on other people. I'm a little nervous to try and pull this off myself. Here I am, needing another shove out of my comfort zone. The swatch, after about half an hour, started crumbling off my arm as it was drying. Not sure how this is going to wear on the lips. This is the other shade I received for free with my order.

Ultra Glossy Lip in Fairy Floss - This pale pinky-beige gloss is very sheer and will layer well on top of other lip products, or it's great for a natural look. It's very similar in colour, not formula, to my Buxom gloss in White Russian. This is another launch that I restrained myself from picking up a ton of shades before I tested out the formula.

Let me know in the comments below if you'd like a full review on any of these formulas from ColourPop. What should I try next?

PS: Sorry about the picture quality. I took these late last night, and as I was editting them, the colours weren't remaining true to what they actually looked like in person. So I'm posting the un-editted pictures.

August Favourites | 2016

Hey guys! I know I've been a horrible blogger, and haven't posted some new content for you guys in a long time. I'm really sorry about that! If you've missed me, I have been posting on my YouTube channel, and have decided to start posting them onto my blog as well.

Today I'm sharing my August favourites with you.

I don't usually link the products in my video descriptions, but I always do in my blog posts, so I guess you guys are special ;)
