A while ago i bought some products from Colourpop. I bought the phase me out value set and some lip products (read about it here). The value set consisted of four super shock shadows from their spring collection. The shadows included in the set was One by One, Itty Bitty, Flipper and Going rouge. These are very peachy shades which is perfect for spring and summer! The set was $20 value while the price was $18 . I was super exited to try products from Colourpop for the first time, especially since everybody seems to have and love them.
This is what Colourpop claims: “Super Shock Shadow Our famous long-wearing crème powder formula with a unique bouncy-like texture. It’s super creamy, insanely pigmented, and has one swipe intensity with zero fallout.”
From the top: One By One, Itty Bitty, Flipper & Going Rouge.
This is the base i started out with. I used a stick foundation, bronzer, blush, a highlight and I had also done my brows. First i applied Going Rouge all over my lid and above the crease to create a base. I applied this with the base shadow brush form Real Techniques (you can find it here). I had to use a lot of the product since the shadow wasn’t as pigmented as it seemed during swatches.
After I applied One by One followed by Flipper. I felt like i needed a lot of product to build up the color to be as intense as i wanted it. I found the shadows to be very creamy but not as pigmented as i would like for them to be. The feel of the product is a very silky and smooth texture and very lightweight.
Finished the look by adding Itty bitty on the lover part of the lid and in the crease with the deluxe crease brush from real techniques (find it here).
The value set is a very nice one to add to your collection, the colors are really nice after some building. Even though these shadows aren’t as pigmented as id wish i would recommend them. I think these shadows can be very nice to add to a collection, especially if you like peach colors. You can find the set here.
Earlier this week i created a smokey summery look. I have been very inspired to do one, especially in some peach tones. I got to use some of my new products and i will do a review on them soon 🙂
I started out with a cleansed face and moisturizer. Since i had already applied make up earlier that day, i decided to keep my brows. I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade in blonde.
I started with the Urban Decay Optical Illusion complexion primer. I applied it with my fingers. Afterwards i moved on to my foundation, i used the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation in 0.5. I expected a very high coverage and a long lasting foundation. I found the foundation to be more of a full coverage than any other foundation I’ve tried, but i could still see some of redness shining trough. Another thing i noticed was that without primer the foundation was easily worn off, and it oxidized.
After the first layer of foundation i applied some color correction and some contour. I used some Scandinavian brands, the Under Cover correct and contour palette and the makeup mekka contour palette.
I applied the medium dark color around my temples, on the upper part of my for head and along my jawline and cheekbones. Then i added a darker contour shade on my nose and on my cheekbones. I also applied green color correction in my cheeks and on the lower part of my forehead. I also applied yellow and pink color correction under my eyes and some purple on my cheeks and other parts of my face where my complexion After blending the contour i added an other layer of foundation.After applying the second layer of foundation, i went over with some powder contour from Smashbox.
Used the colors from Colourpop´s Phase me out value set. I applied the color Going Rouge all over my lid as a base. I used the One by One shadow on the lower part of the lid, and then to create a “smokey” i used flipper. The last color i applied along my lash line was Itty Bitty.
For lips i used the Ultra Satin Lip form Colourpop in the shade Echo Park.

On saturday i and my boyfriend went to Oslo. We went mainly to do some shopping, and I was a bit disappointed because I didn’t buy that much.
The first thing I bought were some makeup from Urban Decay. I bought the all nighter foundation and the optical illusion primer. I bought the foundation in the shade 0.5 (foundation, primer). I will do a rewiev on this some time in the future. I also bought the “eau de roma” tonerwater from Lush as well.
I also visited Zara and because it was SO crowded I only bought one dress. It was a blue and white striped dress with straps. (You can find it here).
I also bought a blue pair of shorts. I bought the shorts at Monki and you can find similair here.
