Hi, everyone! If you saw my latest post, you'll know that I recently gave into my pent-up ColourPop lust and placed a pretty epic order. Every single product I ordered was love at first swatch and I've had even more fun putting my new items to good use. While the majority of shades I selected are quite bold and colourful, there were a few neutrals among them and those are the colours I delved into first. Yes, ColourPop can be work appropriate!
While this look is somewhat unassuming, I can say that I'm completely in love with every single ColourPop item that went into it. First off, the eyes. Super Shock Shadow in On the Rocks is one of the most flattering browns I've used. It is a warm chocolate tone with gold and violet shimmer that give it a beautiful multidimensionality while still remaining perfectly neutral. I applied it to the outer corners and crease of the eyes, and paired it with Super Shock Shadow in Fringe on the inner corners. Fringe is a magical pale beige that adds instant glimmer and glow to the eyes and pairs with On the Rocks wonderfully.
For the cheeks, I started by sweeping Super Shock Highlighter in Highly Waisted on the tops of my cheekbones. It's such a unique highlight shade- it has a yellow base with golden and pink shimmer throughout- while it looks slightly garish in the pan, it translates very nicely on the skin. As for the blush- ah, the blush!- I opted for Super Shock Blush in Jelly Fish. It is a shimmery coral red that imparts the most flattering, luminous flush on the cheeks. Summery heaven!
The final touch of ColourPop was the LippieStix in Brink. Everything about this lipstick is perfection. It's a unique mix of brown and plum with soft peachy pink undertones that make it incredibly wearable. At first swipe, I knew Brink was one of the best neutral lipsticks I'd ever tried. I know it will get tons of use.
