ColourPop Haul and An Announcement

ColourPop stuff is way to addictive.  Oh my goodness.  I've placed two orders recently, and I thought I share with you what I got.

The first order (well, the second with the company) was 3 Lippie Stix (cute name for a lipstick, right? or is it too cute?), and 3 Lippie Pencils (I kind of like the word "lippie"), and 2 Super Shock shadows.

The Lippie Stix I chose were Fancy, Frieda, and Fetch.  The Lippie Pencils I chose were Fancy, Frieda, and Lumiere.

First off, lemme just say, I think selling lipsticks with corresponding lip pencils that have matching names is pretty genius marketing.  Also, the lip pencils are usually just different enough in color from the lipsticks that it isn't totally superfluous to own them both.

I like the Lippie Pencils better than the Lippie Stix.  I find the scent of the Lippie Stix to be too sweet and cloying for my liking, but they are still quite nice.  The Lippie pencils are really creamy, and they apply and wear beautifully.

I decided to give the Lippie Stix in Fancy to my sister when I saw her in Chicago because it was too darn orange on me.  Not flattering at all.  However, she popped it on, and it looked perfect on her.  She told me a few days ago that she's been wearing it frequently, and it's a wonderful spring shade.

I also gave her the Lippie Pencil in Frieda because it was more brown than I was hoping for, and it seemed like it was really similar to the Lippie Stix in Frieda in color, so I didn't think it was as necessary to have both.  Plus, I wanted her to try a Lippie Pencil.

Fetch is a wonderfully bright, happy pink, and I really like that one.

I also bought a couple more Super Shock shadows.  This time I chose I Heart This and Sequin.  Sequin arrived kind of messed up, but the nature of the product is such that even if it is broken it is still usable.

I love these shadows.  Glitter bombs and right up my alley.

The more recent order I made just arrived a few days ago.

This time I bought 2 Super Shock shadows, 1 pressed pigment, 2 Lippie Pencils, and 1 Lippie Stix.

The 2 shadows are Chipper (mint green), and Ibiza (turquoise).  The pressed pigment is called Too Shy (bright blue).  The pressed pigment is not approved for use around the eyes (certain neon pigments are not FDA approved for use around the immediate eye area), but I'm going to try using it as an eyeshadow anyway ('cause what the heck else am I going to do with a bright blue pigment) and hope that I don't have a reaction.  Like all of the other Super Shock shadows I have, these are sparkly.

The two Lippie Pencils I bought are Easy (mid-tone warm pink) and Monkey (mid-tone cool pink).  I also bought the matching Monkey Lippie Stix (bubble gum glossy pink).

You all know I am a huge fan and celebrator of Monkey Day (December 14th), so buying the Lippie Pencil and Lippie Stix in Monkey was a no-brainer.

So that's all the ColourPop stuff I bought recently.  I have yet to try the new blushes.

Something that amuses me: I keep my haul photos in a folder in iPhoto that I named "beauty booty."

Okay, now for the announcement.

I am attempting to do the whole Instagram thing.  You can expect photos of my garden, makeup, cats, and anything else that tickles my fancy.  I'm going to try to post different pictures than what I post here so that it isn't redundant for you to follow me here and on the Instagramz if you choose to do so.  I added a little Instagram button on the sidebar for your convenience if you want to follow me.  My Instagram handle is nentas_frivolity.

Have a wonderful day, friends, and thanks for reading!!
