Swatch Out! Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Color: Limbo

I love colourpop's ultra matte lip formula and the awesome affordability at $6.00 each. This color is sexy and bold. However the color is not so deep on my skin tone that it appears vampy. I am surprised that it is now a favorite of mine, considering that I have always shy'd away from brown lipsticks because they appear washed out against my skin tone. The liquid lipstick formula, goes on wet and dries down very quickly to a non transferable matte finish, that last for hours on end. I can wear it through my 8 hour work shift only retouching my inner lips after eating lunch. Perfect. (Rating) 5 out of 5. 
Suitable for fair to deep tan skin tones.

*Close lip tube tightly after use.
*The Colourpop branding on tube will rub off after a couple uses. 
*Use makeup remover or makeup remover wipes to remove.

Swatch Out! Lorac Unzipped Palette..

So I am going to be honest, the pigmentation and color payoff of these eyeshadows are terrible. Save your $42.00USD and get something worth while. It features 3 matte shadows and 7 shimmer/frost shadows that are chalky and lackluster. I like the packaging because the palette is light, thin and has a great mirror. And I also like the colors, but I would like them alot more if they weren't so hard to work with. (Rating)  2 out of 5.
