So I was going to post this on Christmas Eve... and then New Year's Eve... and then the beginning of January... but now here we are at the end of January and I'm just getting around to reviewing Kathleen Lights' latest collaboration with ColourPop Cosmetics.
This collection features two different bundles that can be purchased separately or together. The first bundle is the Twinkling Lights Lips ($20) that includes two glosses, a satin lip and a matte lip. The second bundle is the Twinkling Lights Eyes ($18) foursome that includes four of the original Super Shock shadows that first made ColourPop popular. It's also possible to buy each product individually — $6-$6.50 for the lip products and $5 for the eyeshadows — if you're only interested in a few shades. If you're interested in the full collection ($38), you can purchase it all together.
I've posted a few reviews on ColourPop products before and my thoughts haven't changed with this particular collection. ColourPop is one of the best affordable makeup brands you can find. Their satin lips are one of my favorite lipstick formulas and I really enjoy the glosses even though a gloss wouldn't be my first choice of lip product. The Super Shock shadows are a great, easy formula to use and can really be built up to create a dramatic eye look.
To create the eye look I'm wearing in all of the photos, I first put Vela ($5) on the inner and outer corners of my eye. Then I placed Light Up ($5) in the center and layered Glisten ($5) over that. I also placed Glisten in the very inner corner. The only color I didn't use was Blitzen ($5). The great thing was that I did this eye look completely with my fingers... no brushes required with these shadows. I actually find that these shadows work better with your fingers compared to a brush.
Now for some lip swatches.
Little Star — Ultra Matte Lip ($6.50)
Night Light — Ultra GLossy Lip ($6)
Lucky Star — Ultra Satin Lip ($6.50)
Étoile — Ultra Glossy Lip ($6)
