ColorPop and Kathleen Lights – Weenie Review

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset


I’ve been seeing buzz about Kathleen Light’s new collaboration with ColorPop, “Where the Night Is,” an eyeshadow quad.  Most of the colors didn’t appeal to me, except for Weenie.  An inaptly named shadow, this beauty is described as a pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.  More pictures, and comparisons, after the jump.

Unlike her prior collaboration with ColorPop, “Where the Light Is,” which is still available the latest quad can be purchased separately.  So, with glee, I happily ordered my pinky rose goodness and awaited my Weenie.  (?)

It is as beautiful as it looks in the photographs.  It has that great ColorPop consistency, is creamy, smooth, and blendable,  and will look great mixed with shadows from the Naked 3 or my Kiko shadow sticks in numbers 5 or 6.  I think I can wear this every day at work if I blend well.  Besides, winter blues call for a little bit of sparkle.

Of course I couldn’t stop with just Weenie.  I also ordered two of ColorPop’s new crème gel eyeliners I stumbled on while perusing the site:  Get Paid and Overboard.  (Warning:  Do not twist these too far up.  In trying to swatch them, the tip of Get Paid broke off on me.  That’s probably my own fault.)

Get Paid is a metallic rose gold shade.  It will probably best be worn with a simple light matte eyeshadow shade blended over the lid because on top of Weenie, it blends together a little too much.  That doesn’t bother me.  There are several shades in the holiday the Tarte Holiday 2016 Light of the Party Collector’s Makeup Case (still available here, it appears), that I can’t wait to try with it, including sugar cookie, it’s snow time, eggnog, and what a wonderful pearl.  (I love blending out all of these shadows with rum pum plum, peach on earth, and party favored.) Overboard is a warm metallic bronze, and I can’t get enough of this with a rose gold eye look. It will look great with Weenie, and with the shade shining star from the Tarte holiday palette.

Here is a picture of Weenie, Get Paid, and Overboard.

For purposes of comparison, I swatched Weenie, Get Paid, and Overboard next to Lala and Blaze, the latter of which is from the Where the Light is quad.  (Is my skin dry or what?!?!?)

ColorPop is such a great budget beauty buy.  I’m very happy with my Weenie, thank you very much.
