Shimmery Silver/Purple Eyes and Mauve Lips Featuring Ciaté London Pin Up

Have you ever been digging though your makeup for one product only to get completely distracted by another? That’s what happened here. I was searching for ColourPop’s Hustle, intending to do a warm smokey eye, but then I saw Meow, and, well, ’tis the season for glitter, ain’t it? Meow was one of my very first ColourPop eye shadows, and as a cat-lover I pretty much had to have it. It’s a gorgeous shimmery pink/silver/purple tie dye with loads of silver glitter, which is why I don’t reach for it very often. Holy glitterbomb Batman!

I also wanted to try out one of my new lip colors from Ciaté, which I received for Christmas in a cute little trio of minis. So far, I like it, but it does that thing (I know, I know, very sophisticated term) where it starts to go a little patchy if you smack your lips together, kind of like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams sometimes do. The formula is a thick cream similar to the Ofra liquid lipsticks, but I would definitely say that I prefer the Ofra formula because those feel like nothing on the lips and look a little less dry, whereas with the Ciaté formula, you can definitely feel that you have something on your lips. It didn’t feel drying, just a bit heavy. I like it enough that I would probably purchase more shades, but I don’t see it ever replacing Ofra or Jeffree Star as one of my favorite liquid lipstick formulas.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
