90’s Inspired Makeup: Colourpop Fall 2015 Collection

90s makeup look 90s makeup

Good afternoon fellow makeup lovers, it’s officially time to break out out the fall makeup looks. I am so excited for fall and the darkness that comes with it; I love dark lips, eyes, clothes, you name it. This year Colourpop Cosmetics officially stepped up their game and released an amazing 90’s inspired collection for their fall lookbook. With product names like Poison, Grunge, and Boy Band I just had to have this collection, as I’m sure many of my fellow 90’s babies will too. Not only are the names a reason to put these items in your cart, once again Colourpop’s insane quality and price point won’t disappoint. Below is swatches and all the details of this makeup look. I also threw in some 90’s fun facts about myself, feel free to share yours =). P.S. Halloween looks will be coming up as soon as October hits.

From left going clockwise: Stereo, Central Perk, and Boy Band.

From wrist down: Central Perk, Boy Band, Stereo, Grunge, Poison, Oh Snap, Grunge Lip Pencil

I picked up three Supershock shadows in the shades Central Perk, I’ve recently become Friends obsessed, so I had to have this. Also it’s my first matte shade from Colourpop and it’s a stunning coffee bean maroon-brown. I also picked up Stereo, a gunmetal purple with sparkles, and Boy Band which is a golden brown with sparkles. For the lips I picked up three Lippie Stix in Grunge, which is a matte and a super-wearable brown and is very Cindy Crawford in the 90’s, Poison, which is a to-dief-or matte burgundy red that I’ll probably wear on the daily, and Oh Snap which is more of a peachy nude, I haven’t tried this yet but it’s a very pretty neutral. I also picked up the Grunge Lippie Pencil, which I highly recommend as finding a brown toned lipliner isn’t easy. You can find all these on Colourpop’s Fall 2015 page.

Makeup Look

fall smokey eye

Primer: Smashbox Photoready Primer

Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Porcelain

Concealer: It Cosmetics Eyelift in a Tube in Fair (I’m still on the fence with this, it provides really great coverage, but it also has a tacky consistancy I don’t love. I got it during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty so it was half off).

Powder: Revlon Aqua Mineral Makeup in Fair to set.

Brows: NYX Microbrow Pencil in Brunette and their Brow Mascara in Brunette. (I skipped powder for this look because 90’s brows were a bit more structured and thin).


  • Crease: NYX Matte Shadow in Maybe Later with LORAC Pro Palette 1’s Espresso in the outer crease.
  • Lid: Coloupop Supershock Shadow in Central Perk
  • Browbone: LORAC 1 Cream and White mixed together
  • Lower lashline: LORAC 1 Black lightly smoked out
  • Inner corner: LORAC 1 Nude

Eyeliner: Maybelline Gel Liner in Blackest Black on both the top lashine and pressed into the lower lashline.

Mascara: L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black topped with Too Faced Better Than Sex (only on the upper lashes)

Blush: Tarte Get Cheeky Holiday Palette in the Shade Breathless (LE).I really wanted almost no color on the cheeks for this so a matte brown/tan works best some similar options are, L’Oreal True Match Blush in Bare Honey, for darker skin tones I’d use their blush in Soft Sun. NYX’s HD Blush in Taupe is another fan favorite.

Highlight: NONE. For a 90’s look I wouldn’t use a highlight as tempting as it may be.

Lips: Colourpop Grunge Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencil.

Vegas Nay for Too Faced Star Dust Palette Review

Vegas Nay Too Faced Makeup Look

Hello fellow makeup nerds of the world, let the Force be with you today, even if it only is the makeup force 🙂 So as I was scrolling through Instagram the MOST beautiful palette I had ever seen waltzed across my screen, I bet you can guess which palette I’m talking about? Yes, no? Well it’s the Vegas Nay Too Faced Cosmetics Star Dust Palette. This palette is everything I had dreamed about, it features deep burgundys, a matte camel color, vibrant purples and stunning coppers and browns. I immediately knew I wanted to do a look with the purpley colors because everyone uses brown and gold, and I love purple on green eyes. So I did a glam smokey eye with this 12-shadow, $45 palette which is an Ulta Exclusive and will be in stores September 6th. The palette also included a sample of the Too Face Shadow Insurance Primer, Better Than Sex Mascara and their Loose Glitter Pigment in Nude Bean. Below is everything you need to know including swatches, product photos, a review and makeup look.

Product Review:

Star Dust Palette DSC00272 DSC00275 DSC00290

This product claims to be a $192 palette for only $45 dollars. Realistically this palette is priced in the ball park of most other palettes with this amount of shadows, except for the LORAC Pro Palettes which have 4 more shadows and retail for the same price. Compared to many of Too Faces’ other palettes these shadows are significantly larger and do include the samples. This palette also features colors that can go in quads so you know which shadows work best together.

The palette features four matte shades while the rest have shimmer or extreme sparkle. Surprisingly, the sparkle shades had better color pay off than the shimmer shades, which I thought were very meh. For me Jackpot and Showgirl, the bronze shades, were beautiful but I have similar colors in my Naked palette. Unfortunately, the colors I was lusting over, Follow me (vibrant purple), Double Tap (deep red-brown with violet shimmer) and The Strip (silver mauve) all took a bit to build up and The Strip had fallout. Millennial (matte warm brown) was really nice and so was #selfie (cream-white with silver shimmer). Sin City (matte black) wasn’t even close to the best black I have, LORAC’s reigns supreme, and took a while to build up, but blended nicely.

Overall for me this palette was a let down, I will definitely use it because I love the colors but the quality just wasn’t great. No shadow was buttery, they did apply nice with the primer, but I had to build up every shade I used up. I say if you have Urban Decay’s Naked 1 palette and the LORAC Pro Palette you really don’t need this unless you’re lusting over this color combo all in one palette. I don’t regret this purchase it’s just let me down a bit, but on the plus the Loose Glitter that came with is amazeballs. Overall I’d give this palette a 7/10.
