Chanel Camelias d’Eau Lip Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Camelias d’Eau Chanel Camelias d’Eau Lip Palette ($60.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that includes lipsticks in fuchsia, pink, plum, and red. They’re in the Rouge Allure formula, though I found that they were a little bit less emollient, luminous, and hydrating compared to most shades I’ve tried in the regular twist-up tubes, which seemed to result in a bit less line-smoothing than I’ve experienced in the past, too. Nevertheless, they had semi-opaque to opaque coverage,…

ColourPop x Sailor Ultra Glossy Lips Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Christine | Updated: 2/20/20February 20, 2020 Moon Tiara Colour Pop Moon Tiara Ultra Glossy Lip ($8.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium peach with strong, warm undertones and flecks of faint sparkle throughout a cream finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied somewhat evenly but was more prone to getting into fine lines and lip lines. I typically find this formula to be more smoothing and more forgiving to lip lines, but the lighter, milkier color worked…

ColourPop x Becky G Traviesa Lip Duo Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Traviesa Colour Pop Traviesa Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes a deep purple matte, liquid lipstick and a deep purple lip pencil. The liquid lipstick was workable on its own, while the lip pencil was best paired with the liquid lipstick rather than worn as a standalone product (as some like to do). The liquid lipstick layered over the lip pencil definitely improved the overall application and opacity of the end result. We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by…

ColourPop x Becky G Payasa Lip Duo Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Payasa Colour Pop Payasa Lip Duo ($14.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a matte, liquid lipstick and matching lip pencil. The two performed similarly, so unfortunately, the liner didn’t entirely solve the liquid lipstick’s problems when the two were used together. Both had good coverage, but not opaque in one layer, and they did not apply as evenly as they should have. The two together were better than either alone, but I’d opt for a better lip pencil (something creamier and…

ColourPop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Hey Big Spender Colour Pop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) includes a satiny, blue-based red lipstick with a matte, very blue-based red lip pencil. When layered, the end result was more semi-matte and seemed about as cool-toned as the lipstick was on its own. Both shades were quite pigmented and long-wearing, while the lipstick was–unsurprisingly–more comfortable to wear on its own and was somewhat hydrating.

The lipstick layered well over the lip pencil, but the color of the lipstick dominated (unsurprisingly) while the pencil mattified the finish slightly. Both products performed consistently with past releases within their respective formulas; they were both pigmented and long-wearing, and the lipstick applied well while…

ColourPop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Go for Bold Colour Pop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) is aptly named as it is a richer, deeper set of burgundy hues. The lip liner was a little drier and less pigmented, so it worked better for getting crisp edges or adding a layer of product for the lipstick to grab onto, but it had some unevenness on its own. The lipstick was fantastic, and it didn’t need a liner underneath it to keep…
