Colourpop Sunflower Collection 💛🌻☀️ // A Look
Ugh I am convinced that I need to get an actual camera because I am so pissed that the yellow part in this eye look didn’t show up on camera... my iPhone 10 didn’t pick up the details, but I’ll share this look anyway 🙄 I did an eye look where it is yellow at the top and fades in to a warm brown like a sunflower, but this looks like just a typical baked browns look. Next time I will create a look that is more yellow based so maybe it will actually show up... Anyway, I finally used Colourpop’s new Lil Ray of sunshine palette. The eyeshadows were really powdery and had a lot of kickback, but as I mentioned on my previous post that it doesn’t really bother me because it usually means that the shadows are highly pigmented and it is true...it’s just messy. As an eyeshadow with a lot of kickback, these had minimal fall out. I had to build first row because it hardly showed up on my skin tone, but I love how buildable this eyeshadow is. The creme gel liners were even better on the eyes than when I swatched it. The super shock shadows are up to par with Colourpop’s quality as always. I tried using one of the super shock shadows as a cheek highlighter and while it is beautiful on the lids, it is chunky on the cheeks so it’s not as versatile as other super shock shadows. Overall I enjoyed using these products and I can see myself using this on a regular for the rest of the summer I used: -Happy place (transition) -Sunnies (crease) -Chillin (all over the lid and lower lash) -Sun giant (inner and outer lid) -Super shock shadow in Flower child (Mid lid) -Creme gel liner in Sunnyvale (to tightline lower lash) -Super shock shadow in “In harmony” (inner corner) I used the “it’s always sunny” gloss by itself because I didn’t want to put too much attention on the lips. Love this gloss! It’s a clear gloss with glitter chunks and it smells so good. Thank you for checking this out. I will create another look that focuses more on the yellow eyeshadows in the future Francesca 💋
My favourite all-in-one palette I got in the UK 💗
All in one palette are a great way to have a few of your favourite products or shades in one place. The product I will be reviewing today is the N07 Highlighting palette that I was given for Christmas and is limited edition priced around £10 so be sure to check them out around Christmas as they will be sure to release another similar product. The set includes three shades. One off white shade, baby pink and a rose pink. I would recommend this product for the fairer toned complexion as the shades are so light. The product is exceptionally buildable, which is perfect as it can be so easy to go overboard with blusher and highlight. The pigmentation is most reliable on the off white and rose-pink shades. I notice I often receive compliments from friends who see when I wear these shades. The baby pink, however, is still a great shade though I find it sometimes blends into my skin tone a little too much. Additionally, the product long-lasting and does not smudge, fall or form a strange texture on my skin. This, I believe, is due to the creamy texture of the product, which can blend easily into your foundation. Upon application, it appears like a powder; however, to touch, it feels quite creamy. As all the shades are shimmery, this may not work for those who prefer a matte finish. Overall, for the price of the product and the shades included within the set, I believe it is excellent value for money and the perfect travel product. I would recommend trying out some NO7 products if you have the chance. Boots also offer lots of vouchers for this brand which makes it even easier to put it to the test.
today’s dreamy pink look
i used a ton of new products in this look and i wanted to talk about them! NYX - Faux Whites really nice white color, not super easy to get on. i had to use a little bit of force but once it was on, what a payoff! bh - Take Me Back to Brazil 35 Color Pressed Pigment Palette these colors are gorgeous. i’m not adventurous enough yet for a lot of these shades, but i used a beautiful duo of burgundy red and champagne/bronze along with many of the shades in the Too Faced - Tutti Frutti Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette pixi - Cheek & Lip Multibalm mine is in the shade Soft Strawberry, and it is so blendable and goes on really nice. i haven’t used a cream blush before and this one is wonderful! MAC - Lustre Lipstick this is creamy and sheer, and is great for layering if you’re looking for a specific look. overall, these products are beautiful! strong recommendation and hope you guys can find some inspiration!

My cheap daily products
Everything is from either Walmart or Ulta and under $15! With the exception of my AOA BB Cream in shade Medium that was $1 as well as AOA Artista $1 felt tip eyeliner in Brown (for some reason brown eyeliner is just so much more forgiving). I use the found contour palette for all over setting power & all 3 colors work great with my medium skin. Essence 16 hour eyebrow pencil on my brows and under my eyes. On my lips are just a cheap pink lip gloss. Better Than Sex mascara mini I got as a sample from Ulta & good to go! Oh, and a smoky eye palette from e.l.f.❤️
Neutrals with a Pop of Blue 💙
Happy Sunday everyone. The weather in California is disgusting right now so I can’t really do much with face makeup so I wanted to do a look that focuses on the eyes. This look is neutral with a pop of color. I used all my new products from my August BoxyCharm box and I love all of them so far! I used the Ciate London Editor - New England Palette to create this eye look. The palette is full of shimmers and colors such as coral, green, golds and blues. I actually had a hard time coming up with a look because I was just so overwhelmed with the choices. The mattes performed alright, but the shimmers were great! Especially the blue shades. The milk makeup gel liner exceeded my expectations. UD zero liner has been my HG liner for years, but I think this milk liner just replaced it... 🤫 All products I used on this look is posted on my IG if you’re curious 😊 my handle is @ francescadflower Thank you so much for checking this post out Francesca 💋
