ColourPop always seems to really nail it with their fall collections, so when I saw this year's theme, I knew I had to pick it up and try it out.
My eye look was super simple. I really wanted the focus to be on the liner. I used only three colors from the palette. I buffed 'Copy Cat' all over the lid and then did the same with 'Pass It On' but kept it tighter to the crease. On the very outer edge of my eye, I tapped on some 'In Bold' to give my eyes a little bit of definition. I finished off the eye look with the Joy Ride Crème Gel Color for winged liner, and used the pencil version on the tightline and waterline. I grabbed my tried-and-true Lash Paradise for my upper lashline and used the BFF mascara on the bottom lashline. I will say that the BFF mascara is not my favorite and one I think you should honestly pass on. I find that it smudges a lot and doesn't build very well. I'm not able to get the volume and definition I want with it, and I find this particular color doesn't show up very well. If you aren't sure if you should spend money on any of the eye products in this collection, I'd really pass on all of them except for the gel liner. I've always been a big fan of those. The palette is great as well, but if you're not in the market for one or have something similar, you can definitely skip it.

Once I figured out how to best use the Super Shock Blushes, a few years ago, I really fell in love with them. And these fall colors are right up my alley. For this look I used 'Underclassman' and topped it with 'Drop of a Hat'. I've been using 'Drop of a Hat' almost every day since I got it. It's a pearlized finish which makes it the perfect mix of blush and highlight. I've really been trying to streamline my makeup routine as much as possible and 'Drop of a Hat' is really a two-in-one product for me.
I've never been a really big gloss person, but I'm glad they chose a gloss over a liquid lipstick for this fall collection. Liquid lipsticks feel a little overdone for fall at this point so I was excited for the glosses. Out of the six in the collection, I think 'Lesson Learned' and 'Crushin'' are my favorite. The others either are too light or too dark for my skintone.
