A Pink Glow Using Colourpop’s Super Shock Cheek Highlighter in “Over the Moon”

Colorful highlights are so pretty in photographs. Not that they’re unappealing or lacking in real life, but they tend to be less wearable than our neutral tones. I’ve been loving the glittery pink glow given by Colourpop Cosmetics’ Super Shock Cheek in Over the Moon, so I decided to create a wearable look using this disco-worthy highlighter.

Why You Need Bite Beauty’s Prismatic Pearl Multistick in “Oyster Pearl”

Bite Beauty is one of my favorite brands — they are innovative, on-trend, and skin-conscious. Using natural food-grade ingredients, Bite has released “Multisticks,” or products meant to be used as lip, cheek, and eye products (think NARS Multiples!), in a range of beautiful natural hues.

I was so excited to see them create a Prismatic Pearl line of Multisticks – they are amazing duochromatic, glittery washes of color that can be subtle or bold.  I picked up the shade Oyster Pearl, described as “metallic taupe with silver shimmer.” Honestly, that shade description does not do this baby any justice! I see a lot of plummy-red and teal in the mix, making this a dynamic color that you probably don’t already have in your collection.

Stunning. I was so wowed by how multi-dimensional the shade looked both in the tube and swatched out. In texture, it’s thin and has a slight oily slip, but dries down to almost a powder-like finish. Keep in mind that if you’re oily, this will slide around, especially in the eyelid area.

I like how this product transforms based on what it’s layered on top of. You can really experiment and get different effects using just this one product!

The packaging is nice – Bite does a great job of creating sturdy, clean-looking, and minimalist components. I love the satisfaction of the magnetic closure on the tube! While it doesn’t seem like you get a lot of product for $24USD, the stick should take quite a long time to get through, even if you use it quite frequently. It’s compact, convenient, and easy to travel with.

A Minimal Look Using Oyster Pearl

Here’s a simple, glossy look using Oyster Pearl all over my eyelids and as a topper for the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow.

Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne Swatches + Review || Kaleidoscope Dreams Eyeshadow Palette and Beauty Beam Highlighters

Very rarely do I find myself purchasing a non-neutral palette. Bright colors and experimental looks are not part of my everyday makeup arsenal. For me to splurge on a fun playtime eyeshadow palette, it has to meet certain criteria. The color selection has to be cohesive, the shadow quality has to be top-notch, and the packaging has to be both functional and visually appealing. Enter the Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne collab. I scored the Kaleidoscope Dreams eyeshadow palette and Beauty Beam highlighting palette for 50% off at my Sephora. After both watching Youtubers rave about the shadows and seeing beautiful swatches on all of my feeds, I decided that the collab lived up to my non-neutral palette standards.
