It always happens.
Every dang time.
ColourPop releases a new item or collection and it's like they become my oxygen.
I literally need these items to breathe.
This happened to me when the Lumiere 2 Ultra Matte Lip was released.
It happened again when the Trust Me Matte X Lippie Stix was released.
Wouldn't you know it, it happened one more time when the KaePop Collection was released.
Each of these items only a week or so apart.
I am proud of myself, though.
When the KaePop Collection released I only picked up three items out of the whole collection.
I skipped (for now) on the eyeshadows and Lippie Stix.
I picked up the the blush (Flush'd), Bronzer (Bronze Me), and the Highlighter (Glo Up).
Swatched below from left to right - Flush'd, Bronze Me, and Glo Up.
They were calling my name so I got them all.
Here they are with flash. Aren't they stunning?
Lip swatches of the Lumiere 2 Ultra Matte Lip (the follow-up to Kathleen Lights Lumiere Lippie Stix).
Pretty much the same lip swatch, different angle.
Same lip swatch, different angle, direct light, and that highlight!
Lip swatches of Trust Me Matte X Lippie Stix.
Same thing as above, same swatch different angle.
And one more for the heck of it!
As always ColourPop doesn't disappoint! I am a ColourPop addict for life.
All of the KaePop face items are gorgeous and I am very pleased with them.
Initially, I thought the Bronze Me Bronzer looked a little dark for me, but we shall see. It doesn't look as dark when swatched. It is probably best to use a light hand and just blend, blend, blend until I can't blend no more.
My favorite item that I got from the collection is the Glo Up Highlighter. I am all about that highlighting life. It is so pretty and sparkly, pictures can't do it justice.
Lumiere 2 is a beautiful shade just like Lumiere. I like ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lips. You just want to remember to exfoliate your lips, use a good lip balm, and your good to go. If it still feels too dry for you, you could also top it off with a gloss or another lip balm.
The Trust Me Matte X Lippie Stix is really the bees knees.
It is so popular that it keeps selling out, but don't worry it will restock (just keep stalking their website).
It glides on so smooth and is insanely pigmented, so much in fact that it stains quite easily.
It dries matte and lasts for hours.
I can't wait to see what other colors they release in this formula.
Did you pick up any of these items? Which is your favorite?
I also filmed a Youtube video on these, check it out at https://youtu.be/tucvHe_krUA.
