Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blushes

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush ($8) released in an array of gorgeous shades earlier this Spring and as I love of blushes I knew I had to try these. Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush at a glance appears very innovative just like Colourpop’s incredible line of eyeshadows however, after trying them they did quite remind me of another formula (more on that in a bit!).

The appealing aspect of Colourpop Super Shock Cheek and well, all of Colourpop’s offerings is the very inexpensive price tag of a mere $8 each for 0.15 oz. I mean pigmentation, an incredible formula, and a cheap price tag? Yes, please. I don’t know about you but discovering indie brands like Colourpop is equivalent to winning a small lotto! They have great packaging, a stream of steady releases, outrageous and tamer shades of color, and great prices! It’s a brand that sets standards for indie makeup.

Let’s take a look at Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush and see what the word is!


Illamasqua Gel Sculpt & Gel Color Review & Swatches

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt & Gel

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt & Gel Color ($37) are a new solid, translucent blush stick with a light, cooling formula that creates the illusion of perfect sculpted cheeks with a gentle flush of color.

I love the idea behind Gel Sculpt & Gel Color Sticks! It’s like contouring for klutzy people like 101. The idea is that the color visually sculpts cheeks so they look lifted and more defined. No tricky powders, no special contouring brushes, just a chubby blush stick and a little blending and apparently I’ll have a more lifted cheek look!

Nifty yes?


L’Oreal Doutzen’s Red Colour Riche Lipstick Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Doutzen's Red Lipstick

L’Oreal Doutzen’s Red Colour Riche Lipstick is one of several new lipsticks that launched in the L’Oreal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Lipstick Collection.

As you know L’Oreal curated a collection of red lipsticks in this release inspired by present and pass celebrity and model ambassadors. Doutzen’s Red is inspired by Dutch model and actress Doutzen Kroes. Technically, like Eva’s Red, Doutzen’s Red isn’t QUITE red but more orange. It didn’t surprise me though as Doutzen’s blonde hair and sunny skin plus her crystal blue eyes allows her to get away with such a fun, vibrant shade of color.

Take a look!


Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme Review & Swatches

Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme ($24) arrive in four shades for Summer 2015 and are now available as a permanent part of Tarte’s Lipsurgence Collection. You might recall Lipsurgence Lip Cremes were exclusive to QVC for a little bit and also made an appearance in the QVC Tarte Bow & Go Today’s Special Value two years ago.

Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Cremes

I love that these are now permanently available from Tarte. One minor issue, can they please be permanent? As they truly are one of my favorite Lipsurgence formulations and finishes!
