L’Occitane Peony Collection

LOccitane Peony Collection

The L’Occitane Peony Collection aka Pivoine Flora (if you wanna get all fancy) is new and features a variety of options all with the delicious flowery scent of the peony. And they also have a new skincare and cosmetics line called Pivoine Sublime.

There is a Mediterranean legend of a beautiful nymph named Paeonia who was so courted by the gods that a jealous goddess transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals: a peony. Since then, this symbol of beauty brightens every spring with its dazzling show of colors and scents.

The Peony collection includes Beauty Milk, Hand Cream, Beauty Cream, Shimmering Oil, Shower Gel, Petal-shaped soap, Eau de Toilette Roll-on, a candle, Perfecting Essence, Perfecting Cream, CC Cream, Perfecting Mist and Tinted Lip Balm. The top notes are blackcurrant, bergamot and pink pepper. The heart notes are peony and freesia. The base notes are white musk, sandalwood and peach. All come together and smell fantastic!

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Fringe & Get Lucky

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow

The other day I posted some swatches of the Where The Light Is ColourPop Super Shock Shadow set and now I have two more for ya!

I decided to pick up Fringe and Get Lucky because I had seen some photos on Instagram of people wearing them and they looked positively illuminating and pretty. As I mentioned before I had a really hard time narrowing down which ones to get. I literally want 99% of all of them! But since I hadn’t yet tried the formula, I figured I better stick to a smaller number of them in case I didn’t like them. Well I like them, and my fingers feel itchy to order more.

ColourPop Lippie Stix Swatches & Review

ColourPop Lippie Stix

As I promised you on Instagram, here are my swatches and review of the ColourPop Lippie Stix!

These are the first ColourPop products I kept seeing on social media and since I am a lipstick-whore, they’re what I was the most interested in trying out. Plus they are only $5.00! Then again they don’t have a ton of product in each one, but I very rarely go through a whole lipstick anyway, so the price for amount is well worth it in my book.

Lippie Stix come in five finishes (and about 10 million shades) including Glossy (medium-full coverage with a glossy finish), Satin (full coverage, hydrating and modern satin finish), Matte (full coverage, long-wearing in a matte finish), Hyper Glossy (full coverage, very creamy and super glossy finish) and Pearlized (medium to full coverage with reflective pearls for a pearly finish). I have some from all finishes except Pearlized. They contain vitamin E, mango, avocado and shea butter for comfort and moisture. You can also buy a matching Lippie Pencil for each shade, but I rarely feel the need for liners so I didn’t get any of them.

ColourPop Where The Light Is Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Where The Light Is

Good afternoon/evening!

The ColourPop Where The Light Is Super Shock Shadow collection is my first experience with the brand after hearing/seeing a whole ‘lotta hype about them on Instagram. I decided to finally check out what all the buzz was about so I bought this set created by YouTube vlogger Kathleen Lights, a couple other shadows and a ton ‘o’ lippies (swatches coming soon). They are a cruelty-free company and made in Los Angeles.

I kept hearing how some people loved the odd texture/consistency of the shadows and some people didn’t care for it. It feels like a squishy sponge when you press down on it. Almost like it’s a creamy wet gel/sponge. I happen to LOVE that feeling so I was immediately a fan when I touched my first one. I have a thing for weird textures so I could literally touch these for hours. 😀 But the payoff was pretty darn good too, which only makes them better. I have yet to try them on my eyes as I just got them, but on the hand I was pleased with the results.
