ItsMyRayeRaye X ColourPop Collection | Swatches + Review

These products are only available until midnight then they will be discontinued, so I figure I had better get my review up. I've had these since the original launch when I purchased them, the price is $5-6 each. They were developed in collaboration with ItsMyRayeRaye, a beauty content creator, and are only available online.

 Rayezor Lippie Stix
 Rayezor Lippie Pencil
 Stingraye Ultra Matte Lip

 Rayezor Stix, Rayezor Pencil, Stingraye
Rayezor (liner on edges blended with lippie stix all over the lips)
Stingraye

  • Stingraye isn't as dry as the original formula, but it also more matte than their ultra satin formula
    • Wears all day without drying out the lips
    • "Cool toned mauve brown"
  • Rayezor 
    • "Warm peachy nude in a matte finish"
    • The liner is a lot darker and more of a mauve than peach
    • Same classic beloved formula
    • Not so matte, still has some moisture
  • Wears an average ~6 hrs without liner but can do ~10 with 
Overall, if these shades are the kind you like to wear then I would snatch them up before they disappear!

Anastasia Cream Contour Kit | Fair | Review + Swatches

There are many contour options from single shades, palettes, powder, cream, but rarely do they cater to fair skin tones. This cream contour palette is in the shade fair, retailing for $40. There are three highlight shades in the top row, and three contours in the lower row.

  • The consistency is creamy but on the drier side
    • Can mix with a facial oil if desired
    • Still blends out very easily on its own
  • I usually apply with my fingertips to desired areas and then blend out with a beauty blender
  • Soft Light is a more peachy pink "pale peach" toned concealer / highlight
  • Lustre is an iridescent clear shimmer "sheer porcelain"
    • Not my favorite shade since it is not intense enough as a highlight and the product still needs to be set in place
  • Fair is more yellow toned "pure sand" and is concealer toned on my skin
  • Fawn is the lightest cool contour "cafe latte" and is my preferred shade to contour with
  • Shadow is more of a bronzer shade, it is a warm orange toned contour "caramel latte"
  • Mink is the darkest contour "toasted almond" and is a bit too dark for fair skin, in my opinion
  • For a light natural contour do before foundation and then use a sheer foundation
  • For an intense contour apply directly after foundation and blend together
Overall, 
I highly recommend this palette. It may seem expensive at $40 but due to the quality and shade selection I would definitely say it is worth it.
