Iluvsarahii x Colourpop Collection

by - June 12, 2017

Karen aka Iluvsarahii reveals her collaboration with Colourpop and it recently launched last month. First I want to talk about the packaging! I think the print of the packaging is so cute. It reminds me of giraffe print and the gold makes everything stand out even more. This collection comes with 2 pressed powder eye shadows palettes, 3 different lippies formulas and 3 different lip liners. The shades to everything spoke to me, I thought of it as an everyday collection for either day or night. But now lets get to the reviews and swatches...

The collection starts off with 2 Pressed Powder Shadow Palettes!
CHIC-Y on the left & $AUCEY on the right.
They both retail at $18 each.
The CHIC-Y palette has 4 pressed powder eyeshadows.
From left to right: Distressed, Vivacious, Freckles & Noche.
Distressed: A Matte Shadow.
Vivacious: A Metallic Shadow.
Freckles: A Matte Shadow.
Noche: A Matte Shadow.
Review: The shades are extremely pigmented. Two things I noticed were: 1. Metallic shades are sheer but if you want them to pop all you have to do is wet the brush before  you go in with a metallic shade; you're welcome. & the 2nd thing I noticed is that there is a lot of fallout with these shades but they're pigmented! The color pay off is great!
Stars: 5/5

The $AUCEY palette also includes 4 pressed powder eyeshadows.
From left to right: Heavy Glam, Chic Happens, Lit & Razy.
Heavy Glam: A Metallic Shadow.
Chic Happens: A Matte Shadow.
Lit: A Metallic Shadow.
Razy: A Matte Shadow.
Review: The palette is exactly like the CHIC-Y palette. Pigmented but with fallout. & The metallics once wet on the brush are stunning! My favorite shade is Lit!
Stars: 4/5
The collaboration has 3 different formula of lippies with their corresponding lip liners.
Left to right: Curvii, Mamacita & 951.
The lippies retail for $6 each.
The lip liners retail for $5 each.
The first one up is Curvii. Curvii is a Ultra Lip Gloss. The gloss is a Crème formula; which means its medium coverage. From these pictures you can tell 3 things; 1. really bad quality. 2. horrible swatches. & 3. the lip liner and the lip gloss don't go together. Iluvsarahii actually made the lip liner to go with the lip gloss to contour to the lip & I though that was creative.
"Curvii" is described as "A light peachy nude in a crème finish"
In my opinion: A pinky nude.
Review: The gloss has glitter! & Its also not medium coverage. To get a medium coverage you'll have to apply 2-3 coats. The good thing is that its not a sticky lip gloss! But it is an extremely light shade.
TIP: Apply the entire lip liner on the lips then apply the lip gloss for a brown nude gloss.
Stars: 4/5
The second lipstick is Mamacita. Mamacita is an Ultra Matte Lip. The color of the lip liner obviously lies to you. The lip liner shows purple but once you apply it, it turns out to be purple although my swatches doesn't show it.  
"Mamacita" is described as "A deepened burgundy"
In my opinion: I would have to agree. Its a burgundy for sure!
Review: I absolutely love the color! But just how I said in my Galore Series #1: -Lipsticks a Ultra Matte Lip from Colourpop can be a hit or miss. Unfortunately, for me this was a miss. Mamacita was streaky/patchy. & of course like always when it comes to these matte lipsticks I only recommend one coat. If you do more than one coat then you run the risk of it flaking off the lips. After a while it starts to feel powdery as well. & It also stains your lips after removing it.
Stars: 2/5

The last lippie is 951. 951 is an Ultra Satin Lip. & Yes, finally the lip liner and the lipstick match. This shade reminds me of "Daddy" from the Jeffree Star x MannyMua collection but in a satin finish and a little lighter on the brown.  
"951" is described as "A mid-tone warm nude"
In my opinion: a brown nude.
Review: I love satin finish from Colourpop. A satin finish I definitely recommend. 951 is a darker nude for me then I would like but I recommend 951. Satin finishes are not matte but it lasts all day. & I also love the name "951" because that is my area code and I love the fact that she named it after where she was born and raised.
Stars: 5/5
Final thoughts!
Left to right, Pressed eyeshadow palettes: CHIC-Y & $AUCEY
Left to right, Lippies: Mamacita, Curvii & 951.
  
I don't love the collection but I also don't hate it. The entire collection costs $60 and there's the entire PR collection that comes a nice fancy box for $69. In my opinion, save yourself $9 and don't get the PR Collection & just get the regular Collection. The only difference is that it comes in a nice box. I thought packaging was very cute, but there was definitely some misses.  What I love about this collection are: The CHIC-Y palette, Curvii lip gloss, 951 satin lip and lip liners: Curvii and 951. What I disliked about the collection was Mamacita matte lip and the lip liner. From the palettes I recommend: CHIC-Y if you're a neutral type of gal or $aucey if you're a dark tones person. Now if I had to rate the lippies in order: 1. 951 2. Curvii & 3. Mamacita. & For the lip liners: I loved all 3 of them because they slide so easily but in order: 1. Curvii 2. 951 3. Mamacita.
