I was so excited to receive these eyeshadows in the mail. Kathleenlights is one of my favorite Youtubers as well as Colourpop is one of my favorite eyeshadows, so it was just perfect when they came together to create this foursome. Overall, I’m in love with these shadows, all of Colourpop super shock shadows are very pigmented, long-wearing and is very velvety, so it came as no shock that these were just the same. My favorite color from the collection is Kathleenlights, it is just gorgeous on any skin tone and flattering for any occasion. Here’s a review of these shadows, which might I add, is $5 for one, total of $20USD. I mean its a win-win situation. Click here to buy.

1. Kathleenlights– this pearlized color is the most gorgeous blend of bronze, copper and gold. I have worn it in the daytime as well as the night and it is flattering all round. This color can be worn everyday, bridal looks or for special occasions. A lot can be done with this color and I’m noticing that the more I experiment with it. As most of Colourpop Super Shock Shadows, it is better to be applied with your fingers as it gives better pay off that way. One swipe is all you need for this stunning color. The only thing I can say about this color is that it is an exact dupe for MAC “Amber Lights”, so I’m not sure if that was intentional or what. Although, I’m not complaining because Amber Lights is $16 and Kathleenlights is $5.

2. Blaze– this is a metallic color, and as most metallics I have my reservations because of the tremendous fall outs and sensitivity to flash photography. HOWEVER, this shadow does not have much fall out but you do get some flashback, not a lot with flash photography. There are specs of silver sparkles in this shadow, it is a beautiful gold color. I do believe that this color is similar to “So Quiche” from Colorpop, So Quiche has more pink metallics and Blaze has silver metallics, but the base color is similar.

3. Cornelious- this is such a perfect shade of taupe is not even funny. I would usually use taupe from the Lorac Pro palette, but this one has better pay off. I use it as a transition color, but it would be pretty as a base or even a lid color. Its super creamy but still maintains a matte finish.

4. Glow- I think this is a really versatile color, I’ve never seen any color like it. Its like a great mixture between white and cream (like a creamy vanilla). Its great for the inner corner or base or my favorite, the brow bone. I think this color is too light for tan skin tones, however you can make it work. It is a matte shade but its creamy, and also whats great about it is its versatility.

Overall, these eyeshadows are such a great buy as you can use it for any occasion. Golds and coppers are flattering on every skin tone so you wouldn’t have to worry about if it would look good on you. The packaging is not the best as its a bit bulky to store in your makeup kit, but if thats not an issue for you, then I’d highly recommend this foursome. Colourpop is one of the best shadows I’ve seen, other than Makeupgeek Cosmetics, and they’re a affordable and long wearing.

DIY Turmeric Face Mask (Acne & Dark Spots)

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog. Today, I will share my favorite most natural way to get rid of acne and dark spots from on your face. You can also use this mask on the rest of your body to get rid of body acne or discoloration on the body. It’s easy and inexpensive so here’s what you’ll need:

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

  – 1 tbsp turmeric powder

  – 1 tbsp plain (Greek) non-fat yogurt 

  – 1 tsp honey (pure)

  1. Mix all ingredients together.

 2. Apply to clean face with clean foundation brush or with    clean hands.

3. Leave for 10-15 mins and then rinse with lukewarm water. Moisturize!

DISCLAIMER: This mask did not cause my face to stain however, every one is different and you need to wash it off thoroughly. It is also a natural mask, so in order for it to be effective, you must use it 3-4 times a week and be consistent. 

Why these ingredients: 

  • Turmeric– lightens overall skin tone, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial (ACNE/LIGHTENING)
  • Yogurt– contains zinc, lactic acid, calcium, and B vitamins which are all good for the skin (NOURISHING)
  • Honey– moisturizing, will add rehydrate the skin naturally (MOISTURIZING)

If you have tried this mask, comment below. We’d love to hear how this DIY mask has worked for you 🙂

Love,
