Product Review -- ColourPop No Filter Natural Matte Foundation, Setting Powder, and Sheer Pressed Powder



It's been fun to see ColourPop gradually expanding their product line to include pretty much a full range of makeup. Foundation seemed to be one of the final frontiers for them (I think all they're missing now for a full face is mascara?), and with the introduction of the No Filter Natural Matte Foundation, it appears they've finally conquered that.

Along with the world of setting powder -- No Filter Setting Powder -- and pressed powder -- No Filter Sheer Pressed Powder.

I'm a pretty big fan of the No Filter Concealer that came out about a year ago, especially since they've expanded the shade selection, so I was pretty excited to give the foundation a try.

I have to admit that I did get a little nervous when I saw the word "matte" in the product name, though. My skin is normal to dry, so matte foundations aren't usually the best fit for me. This one describes itself as natural matte, though, which did make me feel a little bit better -- and for only $12, I figured it was worth a try.

Product 411 -- ColourPop Fame and Fortune Shadow Palettes


It's pretty hard to keep up with all of the new products that ColourPop puts out.

Don't get me wrong... I certainly try to, but they put out new items at a pretty prolific rate, so it's impossible to stay on top of all of them.

I have done a pretty good job of keeping with their shadow palettes (I think there's only one in the line that I haven't snagged yet), though, so I picked up the Fame and Fortune Shadow Palettes that ColourPop put out for their birthday.

One of them features cool-toned shadows! How could I possibly resist?

Product Review -- ColourPop Lux Lipsticks


When they first started out several years back, ColourPop's lip products are what really put them on the map.

Well, the Lippie Stix and the Super Shock Shadows anyway.

So it's been pretty cool to see how their lip products have evolved over time. Their Lippie Stix are still great, but now they have a ton of liquid lip products to choose from too.

At the end of the day, though, I'm more into traditional lipsticks than liquid lip products, so I was really excited to hear that ColourPop was introducing their Lux Lipstick line.

Product Review -- bh cosmetics Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer



Several years back, I bought a brush set from bh cosmetics.

The main selling point for me was the adorable polka dotted handles, but the brushes themselves turned out to be quite nice. They have shorter handles, so I use them mainly for travel but they've come in quite handy over the years.

Yet, despite that pretty positive experience with bh cosmetics, I never purchased any actual makeup from the brand. I had it in my head that they just sold those 88 shimmer eyeshadow palettes and the like that you can get from a bunch of websites, so I never really felt the need.

 In recent months, though, I've bought quite a few items from the brand, and I've been pretty happy with everything I've tried.

Case in point: the Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer.

Sure, I need another concealer like I need a hole in the head, but I couldn't help myself.  Just as with foundations, I'm always game to try a new concealer.
