ColourPop x Alexis Ren collaboration
If you don’t know who Alexis Ren is, I’m going to clue you in: she’s a modern day jetsetting perfect tan-goddess. The kid has almost 8m insta followers and the body of a siren, but don’t be quick to hate on her physique: she works hard for that tiny waist too. She’s the latest collaborator to the ColourPop saga and is bringing back the focus to glowy sun kissed skins and effortless pouts that go from day to night at the flick of a wand. A liquid lipstick wand that is.
The lineup includes the first ever blotted lip product that is meant to be a sheer MATTE wash of color. The shades are far from basic becoming the “your lips but better” product for the summer. They are lightweight and have the feel of a balm – comfortable and almost as if you aren’t wearing anything. I didn’t exactly find them moisturizing nor drying. Will test wearability this week.
DEJAVÚ IS a mid tone pink shade that blended with my natural lip color rather well:
In the sun (as I dream I’m on a beach somewhere)
EROTIC is a coral red
TOPAZ is the first pressed powder face product palette that ColourPop releases, breaking the wave of CREME to powder and straight up dropping a product we all love: a bright gold highliter – and it’s friend the bronzer. I found these to be very layerable and smooth to apply. The highlighter had a tad of glitter on it which is not what I prefer on a highlighter product but it was still pretty and gave me a glowy complexion.
These are some different angles on the set applied on medium toned skin.
I think my favorite item was the LITTLE WEAPON lipstick – as much as I’m a highlighter gal, this lippy just had moxie and it’s the perfect coral red that can dress my face with no other makeup (yea ok, I’m totes wearing the bronzer and highliter here but you almost thought I just came from the beach amirite!?!?! )
