Back in my twenties, I worked behind the counter selling cosmetics for top cosmetic brands. I was used to selling lipsticks for $20-$30 and eyeshadows for $45. Conditioned to accepting these price points, I paid a lot of money for my makeup addiction. Now a mother of two, and a bit more savvy, I'm ready to explore other makeup brands sold outside of the traditional department stores. In search for affordable and quality makeup; I turned to Instagram. One brand that stuck out in my Instagram feed was Colourpop.
Colourpop is based in Los Angeles and a cruelty free company with no testing on animals.
I went to their site and the first thing that popped up was a sign up and receive $5 off your first order. I figured you can't go wrong with that, a perfect opportunity to try a new cosmetic line.
I purchased their Supershock Eyeshadows in Nillonaire and Bandit. Liquid Matte lipstick in LAX and Ultra Satin lipstick in London Fog.
Mornings are hectic for me as I have 2 sons to tend to; one 4 year old and a 4 month old baby. When I have 10 minutes to spare, I pull myself together as fast as I can. Today's makeup look is very natural and easy to do. Majority of my time is spent on prepping the skin as it is the canvas to my art work.
Here are the products used:
The latest addition to my red lipstick collection is from Charlotte Tilbury. I've been anticipating the arrival of her cosmetic line since I've heard about the launch of her stand alone store in Covent Garden, London.
I happened to be at Nordstrom, Valley Fair Mall and noticed her line. I spent 10 minutes there, not enough time to play with everything.
So Marilyn paired with Lip Cheat lip liner in Savage Rose.
