My ColourPop lippes collection swatches

Today I have my little collection of ColourPop lippes to show you. I have really fallen for this brand, and thought why not show you the Lippie Stix and Ultra Mattes I have in my collection. I don't have a ton but what I have is amazing and I can't wait to purchase more.
The Lippie Stix are the most incredible formula. They were all very easy on my lips. Very moisturizing. Even the sheers were super colorful.
The Ultra Mattes were just that.... ultra matte. I didn't swatch these on my lips. (I will in the future) These puppies DON'T budge. Once they are on, they are on for the long haul. I do use a little balm underneath, kinda! I start my full face of makeup with applying balm, I do all my other makeup, then I wipe off my balm and apply the Ultra Matte. Just to give it some extra moisture!

The Lippie Stix are only $5 and the Ultra Mattes are $6..... and worth every penny.
SOOOOO if you haven't heard or tried ColourPop I will have all the links below, following all of the swatches! Happy viewing!

Holy greatness in a stick! I LOVE this product. It keeps my lippies on, helps them not feather, and keeps them on for a super long time. I even wear this under some of my other lipstick! I love it!

Fingerpaints 2016 spring collection

Today I have some polishes from FingerPaints. They have some new colors.... there are glitters and neons, and some really fun others.
The neon colors even have their own top and base coat. The base coat is a simple white cream polish. It makes the neon colors very vibrant!
I have on 2 coats of each of these polishes, except the yellow- it took 3 coats! The glitters were all one coat over another color.
Application was pretty smooth and coverage was great! 
FingerPaints are sold at Sally Beauty Supply.

Rimmel Kate nudes

Boy have I got a post for you today! 
Have you seen these amazing little gems from Rimmel. The nudes by Kate are incredible! Holy cow, I am in love! I have wanted these since I first saw them last summer. Oh the glory of these! Just wait until you see these babies! 
These lipsticks retail for around $8
I will just start off by saying that all of these were opaque, and creamy. They wore for quite awhile and I'd say they're long lasting like they claim.
They felt comfortable, not sticky or slippery. 
They have a candy like smell to them. 
Just fab! 
(Pic heavy post!!)

NYC Demi collection

Today I have some fun items from NYC... the Lovatics by Demi collection. These are super cute and I think the palette is very similar to the Urban Decay Naked palette. 
The shadow swatched pretty well and preformed good too. They was some fallout with these. They are a bit powdery but overall the end result worked just fine. The shadows blended good and the color payoff wasn't too shabby either. 
This palette retails for around $4.99

Here's the look I came up with using this palette, the mascara, brow pencil and cheek tint.

Cheek tint in Cheeky Red
I have always been intrigued by cheek and lip tint. I never got around to trying it on my lips but I thought it was comfortable on my cheeks. The tint stayed for a good amount of time and I think it looked pretty natural.  
Tint retails for around $3.99

Brow pencil in Medium Brown
I don't normally stray away from my normal brow pencil, but I gave this one a try. I wasn't too sure of this one. It did it's job. Although I think the color was a little off for me. I didn't noticed any smudging. It was a little soft but it was okay. 
Brow pencil retails for around $1.99

Volumizing mascara

This mascara does what it says it does. It added volume to my lashes for such. 
It wasn't flaky, and didn't smudge. My lashes weren't crunch and that's a plus! Overall I liked this mascara.
It retails for around $4.99

All in all I liked the products in this collection and I really think the palette was the star. For someone on a budget I feel you could get some really amazing looks with it. 
Let me know hoe you feel if you own or are about to own any of these products!
