The colour is gorgeous but I don't find the formula of this Bite Beauty shade as smooth and creamy as some of their other lipsticks in the Amuse Bouche line. It's not unwearable, but I find that because of the shade in combination with the slightly patchy formula really emphasizes lip texture/lip lines. Sadly I think I will be returning this shade.

Not a horrible palette, but not one I find myself reaching for very often - this palette looked gorgeous in swatches/photos, but once I got it I was unimpressed. I find it very difficult to create eye looks using only this palette, and that I only use about half of the shades in the palette. The pigmentation could be better on 3-4 shades, and while I like the colour selection the palette is not very cohesive overall. Also, there's something about the packaging of this particular Colour Pop palette that I don't find very appealing. Knowing what I know now, I don't think I would purchase it/repurchase it.

My favourite eyeshadow from Colour Pop! Glass Bull is a gorgeous unique shade that can be used on its own or to transform other shades! Semi-sheer duochrome that looks gorgeous layered over other eyeshadows, or just sheered out on the lid! Side note - in swatches it looks more blue-toned (and cooler) than in the pan.

Very pigmented and wears well, this used to be one of my favourite shades but now I find it's just too unnatural/bright pink on me, but if you want a bright cool-toned Barbie pink then this affordable matte lip shade may be worth it for you!

The colour is gorgeous but the pigmentation is NOT there...it is chalky and patchy and is very difficult to build up. If you are trying to use it in a look, the colour blends away into nothing and is not visible...I will likely declutter this soon it just doesn't perform well enough to bother keeping.

I don't get the hype with this product...it's not a horrible primer, but I don't notice any difference using this primer as opposed to no primer...not worth purchasing for me.

Good highlighter, very pigmented - I find it to be a bit powdery at times and I prefer a cream highlighter, but it is a good staple highlighter if you like champagne powder highlighters!

My absolute favourite holy grail palette - a gorgeous mix of warm and cool-toned shadows that I can use to create endless variety of looks. From natural work looks to dramatic gala looks, this palette can do it all - my favourite palette for travelling because of how versatile it is! I wish a few of the shades were a better quality, however, I'm able to work with them and blend them out.

Gorgeous smaller palette for year-round looks, both day and night! I love this palette for travelling! There are some gorgeous matte and shimmer shades in this palette that I can use to create natural or glam looks! I do find that this palette has quite a bit of fallout on the matte shades, and that a couple shimmer shades could be more pigmented. Overall, however, I believe that this palette is definitely worth purchasing!

I don't understand the hype of this product - it is very thick, but I don't find it makes much difference to my lips. They don't feel more hydrated after I've had it on for a few hours or overnight. Not worth purchasing in my opinion.

Very pigmented liquid to powder highlighter - I find it a difficult to blend out well before it dries, and the shade is a bit dark for me in the winter. I'll be using up my deluxe sample, but I will not be repurchasing the Cover FX Highlighting Drops in any shade, as I find it too glittery/harsh.

My holy grail red lipstick - a gorgeous matte cherry red that's velvety, not dry, and is gorgeous for glamorous look, or everyday wear. This is the only red lipstick I need - once I finish off my other red lipsticks, I will definitely be repurchasing this!

While I didn't like this concealer the first couple times I used it, this concealer really grew on me and is now one of my favourites! It is very pigmented and long-lasting - I wish it was a tad creamier, but it blends out very well with a buffing brush.

Good product for when you need your makeup to last longer! The smell can be a bit off-putting at times, and it doesn't make your makeup last "all night" but it's worth purchasing for nights out or special events!

Gorgeous contour shade - very bendable and natural-looking, wonderful for creating a sculpted look - gives you cheekbones! My only complaint is the my pan shattered after a couple months of use - I wish it had been pressed better so it wouldn't break on me.

A great highly pigmented palette with a good variety of neutral and bold shades to create a wide variety of looks, and it can be used for day-to-night looks!! The red-based shades feel a little gritting, but blend out very well and still have good pigmentation...I just wish there was more of a difference between the 3 red shades (they are different when swatched but too similar to go in the same palette, in my opinion).
