Celesti – May 2017
It’s a little bit later than usual that I’ve decided to share my Celesti for May. I’ve had the products laying around in the makeup bag for such a long time that I almost forgot that I received them. What can I say, the exams that I had last month have been stressing me out so much that I didn’t find any time for the blog. But, the worst part is finally over and I can get back to my old blogging schedule. May’s theme is all about being “trés chic,” embracing the pink colors and creating a beautiful, stylish and classy look. To be completely honest (and I know I say this every month) I think this is my favorite bag so far.
I received 5 items as usual:
- Colourpop – Super Shock Shadow in the color ‘Muse’
- Lookx eyebrow pencil in the color ‘Brown’
- Lola’s Apothecary – Sweet Lullaby Soothing Body & Massage Oil
- Colourpop – Ultra Matte Lip in the color ‘Thursday’
- Chella – Passionate Pink Lip Pencil
I swatched all the products with the exception of the body oil (would be quite hard to do that), to give you an idea of what the products look like on the skin.
The first product on the left is the eyebrow pencil. The thing that I love most about it, is the fact that the color stick (crayon, whatever you call it) is thin, which makes it much easier to get a more natural look. At the same time, I can control how much color I want on my brows and that is a huge plus! I don’t like when there’s too much product coming on at the same time because then I have to do more cleanups. The second item is the eyeshadow from Colourpop, and oh my Goodness, it’s beautiful. The pigment, the amount of shimmer and how easy it is to work with, there’s nothing to complain about. I’m a sucker for bronzy colors, so this one will definitely become a summer favorite of mine. Now, that I think about it Eid is not that far away either.
The next two products are lip products. The first one on the left is from Colourpop and to be completely honest, it’s the first time that I try anything from Colourpop. Both the eyeshadow and the lipstick are completely new to me. However, there’s nothing bad to say about the lipstick as well. It’s a gorgeous purple with a hint of pink. It’s a matte color that doesn’t dry out your lips – definite plus.
Whereas the second one is more on the creamy side. It’s from a brand called Chella, which is also completely new to me. It’s a nice pink that doesn’t go on too strong. At the same time, it’s buildable, so you can get the perfect shade of summer pink. My mom really liked this one, so she already claimed it as hers. Last, but not least is the massage oil and let me tell you something. This oil came at the right moment! After all the pressure from last months exams I definitely need a good old massage. I just hope my mom agrees to give me one.
I think what makes this bag really interesting is the fact that I got to try out some products from Colourpop. But, just in general Celesti really knows how to pick out new and interesting products. I’m the type of person, who hates when there’s no variety and there’s only so little to choose from, but with Celesti it’s different. I think the people at Celesti are doing a great job choosing the right products for their customers. I’m super satisfied at least.
