Review & Swatches: Jouer Skinny Dip Collection + More

skinny dip palette

Along with the many other cosmetics that I have ordered this month (RIP my bank account), I got the new Skinny Dip collection from Jouer Cosmetics. I was super excited because I had never tried their eyeshadows or liquid lipsticks before. I have had their highlighters and they are to die for. I got two new ones of those (although that was a lot of disappointment, we’ll get to that later). I figured since this is my first go at Jouer’s other products, I’d do a little swatch fest and review for you all who are interested and trying out the brand.

So, I’ll go ahead and let you guys know now that I did not swatch the highlighters. That being because mine came shattered. I know that Jouer’s highlighter formula is veryyyy soft and it crumbles easily so it probably just got tossed around too much during the shipping because it was shipped in very nice packaging and wrapped well. I did email them but have not got a response yet. Hopefully, I will get that soon so I can use these babies. Now, on to the swatches!

Skinny Dip Ultra Foil Shimmer Shadows (from left to right: Midnight Swim, Magic Hour, Tan Lines, Skinny Dip, Bikini, and Star Light

Excuse the massive amounts of glitter on my arm as I swatched the Stila Magnificent Metals glitter eyeshadows right before this and… that wasn’t my best idea. ? So, these are extremely pigmented and creamy shimmer shadows. I am obsessed with this formula. My favorite is probably Star Light just because it is sooo shiny. The only disappointing shade would be Bikini, which is the light, baby pink color. It’s not that it is not pretty much it feels like a much different formula than the rest of the shadows. Maybe it was packed too tightly but I couldn’t get a lot of product off when swatching it.

From left to right (lip crèmes): Cabernet, Brique, Lychee, Tawny Rose (my personal favorite so far and the one I tested on my lips)

Now, first impressions, I am obsessed. These are an amazing mousse-y formula that is super opaque on the lips. I tested out Tawny Rose to see how it wore and it stayed on like a dream and looked amazing on my skin tone. The only one that surprised me, though I am not disappointed, was Cabernet. Due to the color in the tub, I excited something deeper and darker than the shade after (Brique), but it was just as bright and just more violet in my opinion. Still a gorgeous color!

Overall, I am very pleased with the new products I’ve tested. Hopefully, I’ll be able to do a Jouer highlighter post to make up for the lack of swatches in this one. I think I’ll have four total once I get replacements for the two that came broken. So, what are your opinions of Jouer Cosmetics? Do you use their products?

Review & Swatches: ColourPop Summer Collection

ColourPop has been coming out with waaay too much here lately. I cannot keep up! I did, however, get a few little tidbits from collections they’ve released, the summer one being the target of this blog post. I don’t know that I have all of the products in the summer collection in here, because I only buy what I think I’d use, but they’ve got some GORGEOUS stuff in this collection and I’m obsessed. I do think a couple of these shades aren’t actually part of the collection but they were ones I didn’t think I had so I just included them in here.

So, the first ones I swatched were my go-to Super Shock Shadows. Now, everyone who’s been using ColourPop for awhile knows that these were what basically made them huge among the beauty community. I love their SSS and they will always have a special place in my heart… but these pressed shadows, oh my gosh… they are amazing! Below are swatches of all the shadows, with captions telling you what the shades are.

I am beyond excited that they brought back Ibiza, after everyone and their mama was asking for it to come back. I think they were just waiting for the exact moment, knowing them and their “last call sales”. 😉 #iseeyoucolourpop

So, what do you guys think of the collection? Did I miss something you love in the collection? Let me know in the comments!

My ColourPop Collection: Super Shock Shadows

One of my favorite affordable brands would definitely have to be ColourPop Cosmetics. They have amazing products at such an affordable price point. Not only are their products affordable… they are some of the best quality I have ever tried. Some of my favorite products by them include their eyebrow pencils, their Ultra Satin lips, and, of course, their eyeshadows – which is what I’m going to be talking about. Today, I’m going to share with you all my ColourPop Super Shock shadow collection! I definitely don’t have as many as some people, but I have a good start going with some of my favorite shades that I’ve seen of theirs. I definitely want to add to my collection (and, of course, I’ll do an updated collection post once it grows more!) but I wanted to show you all the quality and amazingness that is ColourPop!

Single Eyeshadows

From the top row down and left to right we have, Nillionaire, La Le, and Kaepop’s Sunset Blvd. Next is Birthday Boy, Liberty, and Krinkle. Last, but certainly not least, is Flower Shop, Empire, and Coconut.

I only have 9 of their single shadows as I started off only buying quads with them because I wanted to test out multiple formulas, without being biased to one that looked super amazing (because I have a habit of getting all shimmery shadows… if you couldn’t tell ?). Below are swatches of the above shadows!

I currently have three of their eyeshadow quads and they are all in collaboration with famous YouTubers! The three quads I have are Where The Light Is and Where The Night Is by KathleenLights and Jenn Ne Sais Quoi by Jenn Im (If you couldn’t tell, I LOVE KathleenLights.) As I said above, I got these because I wanted to try more formulas in shades that I knew I’d love. Plus, supporting YouTubers is always awesome! Below are the swatches of these lovely quads.

And that is ALL of my current ColourPop Super Shock Shadow collection. I adore these eyeshadows and will continue to keep purchasing them as long as they continue to have this quality. I love that they support YouTubers and do collaborations with them as well as offer a wide variety of products. They’re always have limited edition items and new products being released so they’re definitely staying on top! Check out their website if you’d like to shop some of these I have mentioned!
