Zoya London

*Purchased by me*

Hi! Today I have Zoya London to show you. It is a polish that is their awesome PixieDust formula and was released in 2013. Now, I know a lot of people are over the texture polish trend but I am still totally obsessed with it and love it as much as the first time I saw it!

As you can see, London is a gunmetal gray shade. When it is in the sunlight it has some seriously sparkly silver bits that pick up the light. It reminds me of asphalt and I love it!

Now, supposedly Zoya is discontinuing the PixieDust line but it is still on their website. So if you like it, run and pick it up.

What do you think of textured polishes? Do you love them or loathe them? Let me know below!

Colour Pop Swatches

Hi! So, unless you've been totally absent from the makeup world recently you've more than likely heard of Colour Pop by now. I was finally able to place an order to see what the hype was about and color me impressed!

First off, I love the packaging; it's simple, graphic and the inside has a cool pop of color. (Ha! Pop of color, Colour Pop... get it?) Anyway... onto the swatches. First up are the eyeshadows.

L-R: I Heart This, 3, Partridge, Hammered, Bae

This was one swipe of each color on bare skin. The color shift on these is amazing and the texture is so cool. It's a semi-moist consistency that feels really bouncy to the touch. Then it dries down to a powder that stays on like nobodies business! I tried to wipe these off with a dry paper towel and they didn't go anywhere; even after soap and water I could see the stain of the color. When I actually wore them I used primer I didn't have any staining though. 

And now on to the lippies...

Top pic is Grind which is matte.
Bottom pic is Corset which is semi-glossy.

Top pic is I Heart This which is matte.
Bottom pic is Wet which is semi-glossy and slightly metallic.

The formula on all of the lippies was great! They all feel comfortable and wear really well. Bonus: they smell like cupcakes!

So there you go. I am a Colour Pop convert for sure! The eyeshadows, lippies and matching lip pencils (which I haven't yet tried) are all $5 and the new blushes (which I also haven't tried) are $8. It is such a great price for awesome products! They offer free shipping with a $30 order and you can use the code THANKSBABE with your first order for $5 off. 

Have you tried Colour Pop? Do you have any favorites? Let me know!
