Wow long time no see!
But in all seriousness, it's been a while since I've written anything on this blog and that's for various reasons. The past 6 months have been super busy for me with taking on new responsibilities, as well as one of the toughest school years in recent memories. (I'm a teacher for anyone new, and this year has been quite a challenge. Also, for context I teach elementary Spanish, and this is my fourth-year teaching.) But I'm glad to be back and I'm excited to share some of my thoughts on my recent makeup purchases.
I'm trying to curb my makeup purchases this year and not buy too much or overspend. My makeup collection already is quite large, and I enjoy my large makeup collection, but I don't want to spend too much on makeup this year or purchase things I don't need. With that in mind, I've been very selective about my makeup purchases so far this year and have only been purchasing items I think will add something to my collection.
So today I'm going to share some of my favorite products so far this year! Let's do it!
First up - Colourpop x Avatar the Last Airbender
How excited was I when it was announced that Colourpop was collaboration with Avatar the Last Airbender? Very, very excited! I am a HUGE fan of Avatar the Last Airbender. I watched it as a young pre-teen and enjoyed it some much that the show has cemented itself as one of my favorite shows of all time! This collab is my dream collab!
So, how did Colourpop do with the collection? - It's pretty nice! I did really enjoy the packaging and the products quality wise are pretty solid. I'd definitely recommend the lip mask, palette, eyeliners, and lip stains from this collection. I did also purchase the highlighters but didn't love those as much. The main issue I had overall with this collaboration is the fact that some of my favorite characters weren't featured as much. Mainly Sokka and Azula, who did not get their own products and were barely featured in the packaging.
Pros: Cool packaging, solid quality products, affordable, nostalgic
Cons: Didn't include some of my favorite characters
