In recent years, Colourpop has truly emerged as a leader in the makeup industry. Perhaps my favorite part of their line is their countless, large, and high quality makeup palettes – of every imaginable theme!

One of their newer palettes is the massive and lovely Stone Cold Fox palette.

It contains 30 well-milled eyeshadows. Although it does contain a few scattered warm shades, this palette leans mostly cool, with plenty of mauves, grays, taupes, and silvers:

The packaging is sleek – light and compact. It is actually quite thin, which works great to help fit into a makeup drawer!

Without further ado, let’s review each shade – shall we?

1) “So Fine”

This is a Cinderella shade – or, rather, perhaps a fairy godmother shade! It is a silvery baby pink, which would be ideal for the lid, inner corner, or brow bone.

2) “Trip”

If you are looking for a subtle, barely-there pinkish taupe, this is the shade for you! It also contains silver sparkle. Suitable as a crease shade or all-over lid shade.

3) Lux

A creamy shade with rare silver sparkle, “Lux” is quite pigmented. It is ideal for the lid or brow bone.

4) “Dreamful

“Dreamful” is a truly gorgeous snow white color, with abundant silver sparkle. The hue works as a lid color, brow bone, or even inner corner color. However, one downside is that this one is quite powdery.

5) “I Dig It”

“I Dig It” is a silvery glitter taupe. Beautiful as a lid color.

6) “Mystery”

A glittery mauve – again, an ideal lid color!

7) “Stranger”

“Stranger” is a natural-looking crease color – a light taupe which is slightly darker than “Trip.”

8) “Quarry Days”

“Quarry Days” is a matte warm-toned taupe, deeper than “Stranger.” Another great crease shade.

9) “U Rock”

“U Rock” is a cool-toned matte gray. Excellent crease shade.

10) “Magnetic Moon”

“Magnetic Moon” is my favorite shade in this palette! A glittery silver, this shade packs a punch in terms of pigment and has an almost foiled appearance. A stunning pop of color in the center of the lid!

11) Enigma

“Enigma” is a light warm-toned taupe. A crease color, for sure!

11) “Ghost Town”

“Ghost Town” is a deep, cool-toned taupe crease shade, with hints of mauve and plum.

13) “Stone Age”

Lighter than “Ghost Town,” “Stone Age” is a light mauve crease or lid shade – stunning on green eyes, I must say!

14) “Hard Place”

“Hard Place” is a mauvy bronze – best suited as a statement lid shade.

15) “Sediment to Be”

A pewter shade – ideal for the lid. This color reminds me of a moon rock!

16) “Rumor Mill”

“Rumor Mill” is a dark matte gray – best for deepening the crease or outer corner.

17) “Baby Doll”

“Babydoll” is a silvery taupe with a hint of mauve.

18) “Gneiss Guy”

I expected to love this shade but didn’t! A reddish mauve, “Gneiss Guy” contains glitter which is far too chunky and suitable only as a lid topper.

19) “Gravity Hill”

“Gravity Hill” is a deep matte mauvy plum – best for the deep crease or outer corner.

20) “Truffles”

“Truffles” is probably my second favorite in this palette – it is a highly unique shade. It’s a matte taupe infused with silvery blue sparkle.

21) “Bould Type”

A light matte grayish taupe.

22) “Caving In”

Silvery taupe with a touch of mauve.

23) “Fascinated”

Light matte grayish taupe. Useful as a subtle crease color!

24) “For Granite”

Deep brownish plum doused with delightful pink sparkles!

25) “Play It Coal”

This mauvy plum shade also contains pink sparkles, similar to “For Granite.”

26) “Fickle Fate”

This matte shade is a marriage between eggplant and plum. Suitable for deepening the crease or the outer V.

27) “Cult Classic”

Matte grayish brown. An outer V shade, for sure!

28) “Rock Bottom”

This is your classic matte black shade. It works to deepen the crease or outer V – and could also serve as an eyeliner shade.

29) “Drama Mama”

Probably my third favorite color in this palette. This shade is a mix between rich cocoa brown and eggplant. I love it for the outer V.

30) “Obsidian”

This shade is very similar to “Fickle Fate,” only darker and leaning more towards brown than eggplant or plum.

Now, for side-by-side swatches…

First Row:

First Row (L to R): So Fine, Trip, Lux, Dreamful, I Dig It, Mystery

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow (Swatches and Review)

Today I’d like to review Charlotte Tilbury’s “Eyes to Mesmerize” cream eyeshadow (complete with swatches!).

These cream eyeshadows are housed in the typical sleek Charlotte Tilbury packaging, which screams elegance, sophistication, and Hollywood glamour.

The consistency is quite creamy and gel-like. I’ve tried applying this with a brush and have come to the conclusion that it’s best applied with the fingers. Patting it onto the lid, adding more to heighten the intensity, and then rubbing it into the crease works best.

It is difficult to explain, but these shadows, when applied as described above, create the illusion of a complex eye look, which involves several different shadows and took a long time to create. It is also a perfect eyeshadow for quick, on-the-go looks.

I’ve featured swatches below:

I’ll discuss each shade individually below, along with eye swatches!

1) “Oyster Pearl”

This shade, previously called “Marie Antoinette,” is a perfect blend of taupe, gold, and bronze. It is universally flattering, but is particularly appealing on blue eyes.

2) Pillow Talk

As part of Charlotte’s iconic “Pillow Talk” line, this shade is a dusty mauve with a sheen, and is actually very similar to the lipstick color of the same name. Gorgeous on all eye colors.

3) Rose Gold

“Rose Gold” is an airy, more cheerful cousin to intense “Pillow Talk.” It’s the same shade as a penny. Flattering to all eye colors.

4) Sunset Rose

If “Pillow Talk” and “Rose Gold” had a baby, “Sunset Rose” would be it. This combines the femininity of “Rose Gold” and the passion of “Pillow Talk” – perfect for the office or a date night.

3 Naked 3 Mini Looks (Plus Review!)

As a mega-fan of the Original “Naked 3” Palette from Urban Decay, I was thrilled to hear about the “Naked 3 Mini” – and it has not disappointed me!

This little gem of a palette is compact – in fact, it could fit in your pocket! Thus, it is a perfect palette to pack while traveling:

These colors are in the rose gold family similar to the original “Naked 3” shades; however, these shades are unique enough to differentiate them from the namesake palette.

SHADES:

  1. “Glassy” – This shade is a gorgeous champagne, which is ideal for placement on the browbone or the inner corner. It is also perfect as an all-over wash to the lid.
  2. “Public” – Stunning rose gold. There are no words to describe the beauty of this shade. It provides subtle glitter, with no chunkiness.
  3. “Laced Up” – Matte dusty rose. This color is the quintessential crease shade.
  4. “Stolen” – Shimmering dusty rose; ideal for lid application.
  5. “Right Time” – Dusty purple/mauve; excellent for crease application.
  6. “Spiced” – Very deep eggplant purple shade with pinkish sparkling specks. This shade dials up the drama and anchors the palette. It is perhaps the most versatile – as a liner, deep crease shade, or suitable lid color on a date night.

I have 3 separate looks utilizing this remarkable palette:

Bare Minerals Loose Eyeshadow Round-Up

1

NOTE: This post contains affiliate links, which means I’ll receive a small commission if you purchase through my links, at no extra cost to you. I only recommend products that I love. Please read my full disclosure here for more information.

Today I’d like to review and swatch my Bare Minerals loose eyeshadow collection — and then communicate my thoughts regarding their uses. This post will focus on Bare Minerals’ shimmer shades only since the matte shades are too numerous — those will be saved for a later post 🙂

1) “Bare Skin” – Gorgeous peach sheen. It’s beautiful applied all over the eyelid for a one-shadow look. The peach tones particularly compliment blue eyes.

2) “Rapture” – Beautiful copper shimmer, with just a hint of coral.

20131016-180054.jpg
3) “Soul” – Buttery white satin shade, which manifests a subtle iridescence when applied. Perfect as a base color over the entire eye.

20131016-180422.jpg
4) “Satin Ruffle” – Grey-white pearl. This shade is actually the most sheer of these shadows and might work best as a brow bone or inner corner highlight.

20131016-180744.jpg
5) “Magnolia” – Glistening baby pink. This shade is pinker than the photo allows, perhaps too pigmented to use as a highlight color. Great for a one-shadow look on the lid itself. The rosy undertone makes green eyes pop.

20131016-181103.jpg
6) “Citrus Twist” – Stunning coral pink with golden shimmer. If the Nars “O” blush had an eyeshadow equivalent, this would be it. Very flattering to green eyes!

20131016-181448.jpg
7) “Celestine” – Dainty pearlescent silver. Beautiful as a one-shadow look applied on the lid.

20131016-181813.jpg
8) “Queen Tiffany” – Rich mahogany shimmer, with a warm undertone like burnt copper. Beautiful on blue eyes.

20131016-182145.jpg
9) “Drama” – The most gorgeous taupe eyeshadow I’ve ever seen. Period. Universally flattering — a must-own shade! Better than MAC’s “Satin Taupe,” in my opinion.

20131016-191129.jpg
10) “Glamorista” – Olive green sheen. I love this shadow since it’s the color of my eyes! 🙂

20131016-193134.jpg
11) “Brocade” – Glittering indigo. This is arguably the most striking – and unique – shade in the collection. It possesses a 3-dimensional quality, with navy, purple, black tones. It reminds me of the starry night in Van Gogh’s painting. This shade has all the makings of a killer smokey eye! 🙂

20131016-193808.jpg
12) “Dark Chocolate” – Shimmering golden brown. Similar to “Queen Tiffany” — without the warm russet undertone.

20131016-194201.jpg
13) “1990s” – Royal purple with golden and silver sparkle. Another fantastic “smokey eye” shade!

20131016-194502.jpg
14) “Sapphire Sky” – Shimmering navy. For some reason, this shade applies less evenly than the others, although it certainly has “smokey eye” potential as well.

20131016-194733.jpg

What I love about these eyeshadows is their luminous three-dimensional quality, in which one can discern multiple different pigments and undertones. This makes for some truly unique and complex shades, which can not be easily duped. On the negative side, one must be very careful with the loose pigments since a spill can cause a dreadful accident on the carpet or dresser. (I have learned this fact through experience!).

Nevertheless, I think it’s well worth picking up a few of these shades since they are one-of-a-kind and do not crease, even without primer 🙂
