I went to Henley Regatta yesterday, and it was the perfect opportunity to use my new lipsticks/gloss from Colourpop. I was so excited to try these out properly, there were so many gorgeous colours it was hard to choose. I like a full coverage lip, but I really struggle with matte lipstick cracking and creasing, the ‘Ultra Satin Lip’ is absolutely perfect for me, thick creamy pigmented formula that’s flexible and moisturising on the lips. I have this formula in shades; Calypso, Strip and Tansy. I also could resist the ‘Ultra Glossy Lip’ in the shimmery copper Cheat Code. I brought the rose-gold hued highlighter in Candyman, just to make sure. My products came pretty quickly and were amazing value (I think $6 dollars each!) although I had to pay an extra customs charge which is a bit sucky, but expected. I was confident enough with the ‘Ultra Satin Lip’ formula to know that it would hold up pretty well with a whole day of drinking, and also that it was non-drying enough to reapply multiple times if necessary.
I was really happy with the look I created, even if I did have to take off my eyelashes towards the end of the night, they weren’t too bad but the edges were playing up a little bit and I didn’t bring any eyelash glue- luckily I had some mascara in my bag so I could touch my eyelashes up a bit and no one seemed to notice.
All in all, I am so happy with my new goodies and I can’t wait to try them all! I was so pleasantly surprised with the lipstick from Colourpop and I will definitely be getting more colours very soon the highlighter was absolutely giving me life but a little goes a long way and I was pretty heavy handed with it, only use a little bit unless gorgeous glazed donut is your goal. so stay tuned for more full looks!
