Peripera & Colourpop Swatches


Happy July 4th!  Since it was my birthday last month, I treated myself to some beauty goodies. Haute Look was selling Peripera products so I splurged and purchased some unnecessary necessary things… I also decided to try Colourpop! Check out what I picked  below.

A common problem when picking out cosmetic shades online is they never look the same in real life. So of course after receiving the lumi pangs I realized PK 10 and PK08 were very similar. Oops! I also picked up a lavender shade cream blusher. I LOVE blush and never tried anything in this shade so into my shopping basket it went. Come to me my precious…

It's like cotton candy pink! I’ve only tried it twice so far and don’t feel comfortable wearing it on its own. Applied with a light hand you get a subtle brightening effect, but no flush. Applied with a heavier hand and you look like a barbie doll. I need to play around with this one more to figure out the best way to use this on my face. Maybe I can use it under foundation as a brightener? Onwards to Colourpop…

As part of my never ending quest to find the perfect nude lip, I ordered Colourpop’s lippie stix in Lumiere. The shade seems a bit more fall appropriate for me so my quest continues…


Since I’m a blush addict I also ordered their super shock cheek blush in between the sheets. Not bad, not bad! This gives me that “I just went out for a run” look, which is quite nice. They added a freebie eyeshadow in Birthday Boy so that was fun to try out too! See swatches below. I’m quite pleased with what I got from Colourpop so I think I will be trying other products from them.

The last 2 things I got were Laura Mercier products. I finally used my Sephora VIB points to claim this set:



I had been waiting for something that was worth to spend my points on. Since I never tried any of the products that were in this box, I was super excited to pick this up. Prior to getting the sample set from Sephora, I was shopping online at Nordstrom and saw they were discounting the entire Laura Mercier range. I got it in the shade Bronze 02. Compared to Benefit’s Hoola, Too Faced bronzers, Physician’s Formula bronzers, Urban Decay Naked bronzers, and my MUFE bronzer, this one is very subtle and applies light.

That's all for now! Hope everyone has a wonderful day and a safe 4th of July!
