Hello friends! Today I'm back for another makeup-related post.
So recently I decided to purchase some items from Ulta. I knew I wanted some Stila liquid glitter shadows, but then another palette caught my eye. I've seen it before on ColourPop's website, but this time, I was set on purchasing it--the Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Dream St. palette.
I'll be honest, I've never actually watched Kathleen Lights on YouTube before. I actually unfortunately know nothing about her. However, I'm here as a makeup-lover who just wants to do some fun swatches.
This post is going to be in a similar format as my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette post, just to keep things nice and simple. Let's start out by taking a look at the packaging.
First of all, the packaging is gorgeous. It's marbled, almost, with white and rose gold foil.
And on the inside, we can see twelve beautiful, vibrant shadows. 5 shimmers, 7 mattes.
Time For Some Swatches
There are three rows, each with four shades. Let's start from the top.
The four colors in the first row include (from left to right):
Shooting Star (matte)
Star Dust (shimmer)
Feedback from the first row: I'm so impressed with the pigment of both the mattes and the shimmers. I'm actually obsessed with the rosy color, Twinkle, and the matte shade, Shooting Star.
The four colors in the second row include (from left to right):
Sweet Dreams (shimmer)
Water Bearer (matte)
Feedback from the second row: I originally expected Spark to look more pink, but once swatched, it definitely looks like more of a bright red. But, hey, red is in. I also love Potion as a neutral, burnt orange, which I'm always on the hunt for. Water Bearer took a few swipes to build up, and it was so far the only color to have obvious fall-out. I'm guessing it's because, the darker the shade, the difference of consistency. But once built-up, it's a super neat shade. And Sweet Dreams is a super cute highlight shade, in my opinion.
The four colors in the third row include (from left to right):
Mermaid Boy (shimmer)
Feedback from the third row: For some reason I expected more pigment from Kaleidoscope, but it still has a really pretty shimmer. Elfish and Mermaid Boy both took a few swipes to build up the richness, but they both look stunning. And Moony might have a shimmery sheen in it, but I really can't tell to be honest.
An Attempted Look
Since I used the cool colors when I first tried Jaclyn Hill's Morphe Palette, I wanted to try out the warm colors with Kathleen Lights' ColourPop palette. I'll discuss my steps below.
I didn't know where to begin, so I applied Moony as a base color on my lid, then Shooting Star in my crease. I then used Sweet Dreams to highlight my inner eye corners, then Twinkle on the rest of my lid. To add dimension, I applied Star Dust to the outer corners of my lid, and Elfish to the outer portion of my crease. On the bottom lash line, I applied Twinkle to pull the whole look together. As a bonus, my mascara is L'oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise and my lipstick is the Loreal Paris Colour Riche lipstick in 843 Toasted Almond. Cue the sassy brow!
As a final review, I freaking love this palette. The colors were beautiful, easy to blend, and also super easy to build on top of each other, which is perfect for someone as indecisive as myself.
Thank you guys for stopping by! Next week's post is going to be very nerve-wracking. Stay tuned!
