ColourPop Forever Freshman & Back to Cool sets haul & Review

16 Oct

As you can see in the photo above, ColourPop sent this wonderful package of goodies with some of their new items. First off, thanks once again CoulourPop, I am so thankful for the goodies! OK, so I’ve been a fan of ColourPop since the beginning of the year. I place an order with them after Jacklyn Hill did a look using the KathleenLights quad of super shock shadows, which I love and a Highlighter in Lunch Money, also LOVE! I later purchased a few of the ultra matte lips after they launched (LOVE). A rep from the company contacted me via my email explaining they found me on social media and they would like to send me a PR package to share with my followers. OF COURSE I SAID YES! So they sent me these goodies. Now on to the sets:


These two beauties are two of their new Super Shock Cheeks (blush). The top one is Between the Sheets which is described as “A mid-tone beige pink in a matte finish”; the bottom one is Never Been Kissed described as “dusty coral in a Matte finish”. I love both colors, but at my current, some-what tan skin tone, Between the Sheets is WAY too light for me and virtually disappears when I blend it out. So I think this is a PERFECT color for you fair skin ladies ;) Never Been Kissed however is GORGEOUS! It’s definitely build-able and blends out nicely. I personally apply a little with my fingers, blend it our with a synthetic brush, and re-apply until I get the desired intensity. I think this color is great for all skin tones.


The are 2 of the individually solf Lippie Stix that came out for Fall 2015. On the top we have Dazed which is described as “berry red in Matte finish”. I wore this last week for the first time and I couldn’t stop looking at it! It’s such a GORGEOUS deep red (perfect for fall). I can’t wait to wear it again! On the bottom we have Grunge which they describe as “ool-toned plum brown in a Matte finish” and that it is! I wore this yesterday and got SO MANY compliments on it! (You can check out my Instagram for my pictures wearing some of these products ;) )


So this Lippie Stix set is called Back to Cool and this is how they come from the company (LOVE IT!) These Lippie Stix ONLY come in this set and are not sold individually, but why not get the whole set because ALL the colors are just gorgeous and perfect for fall! The set retails for $30 (that’s $5 each which is what all their Lippie Stix are sold for individually).


Each color is described as follows (L-R in photo):

Choker- Light cool-toned beige in a Crème finish; Mosh Pit- Mid-tone warm brown in a Matte finish; Baewatch- Dusty rose in a Matte finish; Out of Sync- Bright blue fuchsia in a Matte finish; Too Sexy- Deep red violet with a subtle blue flash in a Matte finish; TGIF- True brick red in a Matte finish

These Lippie Stix are a must-have. The colors are fall appropriate, and the names! GAH! So nostalgic from back in the day! Choker is the perfect, every-day wear nude that has a little sheen. I wear this color when I’m rocking a smoky eye, or when I just want to throw something onto my lips with little effort. The only other colors I have worn are Baewatch & TGIF. The latter is the PERFECT throwback color to 90’s. It makes me think of 90210, Friends, Step-by-Step (I could go on and on). The girls/women in these shows wore a color JUST LIKE THIS all the time.  Baewatch is a BEAUTIFUL color! It’s like a dusty version of your lips but better color. I have some swatches below of this set and the two previous lippie stix so you can get a better idea.


L_R: Choker, Mosh Pit, Baewatch, TGIF, Too Sexy, Out of Sync, Dazed, & grunge

Lastly is the Forever Freshman Collection which is a set of 6 Super Shock Shadows. ColourPop describes them as follows:

Crimper- Soft gold with multi-dimensional gold glitter in a Metallic finish; Koosh- Icy silver taupe in an Ultra-Metallic finish; 90210- Greyed out taupe softly sprinkled with pink and gold glitter in a Satin Luxe finish; Melrose- True rust in a Matte finish; As If- Mid-tone cool taupe in a Matte finish; Baby T- Deep blackened blue in Matte finish



They come looking SO pretty!


Top L-r: Crimper, As If and Melrose Bottom L-R: Koosh, 90210 and Baby T

I have worn all but Baby T and let me tell you, they are GORGEOUS! My personal favorite out of the set is Koosh. It has this gorgeous metallic sheen that is perfect to wear alone or with a smoky eye. I do plan on filming a tutorial using this collection, so let me know what you would want to see. Below I will post individual close-ups of each shadow.

My final thoughts on these products are that they are worth the price so I suggest you get them while you can :)

Please be sure to check out my YouTube Channel for an upcoming look using them.



I have a blog??

So I have been VERY bad about keeping this blog up to date with all my new video content (SORRY!) I’m going to post the last few that have gone up on my channel Beauty by Pinky below

This was just a quick, Get Ready with Me for a regular day where I wanted makeup, but nothing over the top. (Please excuse the lighting and sound, I am still working out technical kinks).

This is my Collaboration with the beautiful AlyJae. We found each other and became friends via Instagram and thought it would be great to do a collaboration using Morphe Brushes palettes. I used the Limited Edition Jaclyn Hill Favorites palette (which is no longer available in palette form, but you can purchase every single shadow individually on their website), and Aly used the 35W palette for her look. We had some bumps in the road getting these videos up when we wanted, but the made it up for you all to see :) I hope you like the looks!

I filmed this FOREVER ago and forgot about it. Found it the other day and did a quick edit and posted it for you all to see. Super simple visual on how I tone my blonde hair to remove any brassy-ness, between visits to my hairdresser (which also happens to be my sister. Check out her Instagram )

This is my most recent video using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette (shout out to my hubby for buying this for me out of the blue!). This video was completely unplanned as far as what look I was going to do, all I knew is when I asked, everyone wanted to see a look using this palette. I warn you, this is a LONG video (unintentionally) and other than the camera difficulties and off-colored lighting in the beginning, I am VERY pleased with how it turned out. I promise I will get these technical issues resolved in my next video.

Please let me know what you would like to see next. I have the Fall Favorites Tag I will be filming along with a couple other ideas.

Making a Come back!

5 May


Hello fellow beauty lovers! Yes, I know, I have been MIA for over THREE YEARS! I can’t believe it, but you know, life happens. I’m still beauty obsessed, and am CONSTANTLY looking for the latest beauty and fashion trend & deals.

Latest news is that my Pinterest has now been converted from a personal account to a business account! I just can’t believe it! I have so many followers on there it’s insane! With that being said, it has given me an even bigger motivation to get my YouTube channel back up and running and this blog to go along with it. I hope that you will stick with me as I make this transition back into this. Thank you for all the love and support.

Yes I know, I have been away and neglecting my blog for way too long now, and I am sorry. For now I will be posting the videos I have missed since last April in order of when they were uploaded to my Youtube channel.

So I have some VERY exciting news to share with you all. My makeup work has been published in an online magazine! So a few weeks back I signed up for a website called Model Mayhem, (which is for photographers, make up artist, hairstylists, models, etc.), and I was contacted by a local photographer needing a make up artist to do makeup for a local band she would be photographing for a magazine she works on. She also happened to see my work from another shoot I did back in January with my friend Shellie Vickrey of Broad Division Studios (check out her blog, website, and fanpage) and Kevin Kidder (facebook). So on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I met Joy Newell (photographer), the writer for the article, Promise Newell, and the member of the band, Sister Rogers. I had to do make up for the two BEAUTIFUL ladies of the group, Ericka & Jenny. The were funny and so pleasant to work with. Promise interview them whilst I applied the make up, which was fun & interesting for me to hear their answers to all Promises questions. Anyway, to see my work in the magazine visit InkMagOnline and check out pages 8, 56, 59,& 60, where the girls of Sister Rogers are featured wearing my makeup. As you may be able to tell, I am so excited for this, and I thank the photographer, Joy Newell, on how amazing the photographs turned out!
