Another ColourPop product I’ve hit pan on! This is a beautiful color and I love the formula of the brands blushes.
I loved it so much I have rubbed off the logo on the lid! I like to apply this blush with a stippling brush. Either the one from e.l.f or the Sigma F50 Duo Fiber Stippling Brush. Really I reach for whichever one is the cleanest….
I know its a little teeny tiny sliver of the bottom of the container but I’m so proud that I was able to get through!
As you can see the color is beautiful Coral Pink that is matte. This was a part of the 90’s collection that came out last summer and as the writing of this blog post is still up for purchase on the ColourPop website. Check out the website to see pictures of this blush on different skin tones. I love that ColourPop does that as its nice to see a variety of skin tones represented.

I’m a big fan of Colourpop’s products. One of my favorites is their eyeshadow. This color is a Vanilla Matte and was first only available n the Kathleen Lights collection but is now also available by itself. I like to use this as a base for an eye look and/or as a brow bone highlight. Right now I am not going to repurchase as I have a ton of other eye shadows and base products to go thorough but I would highly recommend it and I’m sure at some point I will buy it again.
Colourpop Supershock Eyeshadow in ‘Glow’ — $ 5
I picked this up when Ulta was having a buy one get one 50% off on Maybelline products a few months ago. If you are a regular reader you know that my skin is super oily and nothing I’ve tried so far keeps my oil at bay for a significant period of time. This has oil control in the name so I thought why not!
My biggest problem with this is that it looks very powdery. Funny I know its a powder… but even with a light hand this makes me look like I’m flat, matte and wearing powder which is not a look I’m going for. If you have dry skin this will be a not go as I can imagine it would cling like crazy to any dry areas. I still use it, just not on its own. I will use this up but I won’t repurchase it in the future.
FIT ME!® MATTE +PORELESS FOUNDATION
IN CLASSIC IVORY 120
Beyond matching skin tone, it fits skin’s texture.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Flawless. Beautiful. Fresh. With Fit Me!® Matte +Poreless powder foundation you can make visible pores and shine disappear while still getting perfect buildable coverage.
WHAT IT’S BEST FOR
- Normal to oily skin.
- Erasing pores.
- Mattefying shine.
I do think that this powder helps to matteify however I’m sure that it does not “erase” pores. First off I’ve never tried a product that “erased pores” maybe filled them in and made them less noticeable but not erased. Second, I don’t think for the price of this drugstore powder I will be repurchasing. I think that the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder works just as well for less then $5. The only advantage to this product is the packaging. It is in a compact with a mirror and sponge but that is not a selling point for me personally. Overall this is a good product but I have used other powders that are just as good and not as expensive.
When I notice that I’ve almost used something up, I feel compelled to use it as much as possible so I can be done with it as soon as possible. About two week ago I noticed a tiny ‘hole’ in my Bahama Mama bronzer and thought, ” Have I hit pan on this? There’s only one way to find out…” and yes I have hit pan on this product and I probably won’t used another bronzer until I’m done with this one hahaha 🙂
If memory serves correctly I believe that this was the first “high end” bronzer that I ever bought about two years ago. I mostly use this for bronzer but I have also used it as an eyeshadow as it makes a great crease color. Lets see what theBalm has to say about their product…
Finally, a Caribbean getaway in a compact! This matte bronzer creates the look of beautifully tanned skin without any orange undertones for a fresh-off-the-beach glow. Bahama Mama also doubles as the perfect contour powder and matte brown eyeshadow. Yes, this tropical beauty keeps busy!
I do have a back up for this bronzer but I’m not planning on breaking it out just yet, I’ll try and use up at least one more of my other bronzers before I break into it. Overall, this is probably one of my favorite bronzers and I would suggest giving it a try if you like matte brown (with no red/orange undertones) bronzers.

Over the next month or so you can expect to see blog posts in my new series “Products I’ve Hit Pan On”. I’ve somehow managed to use up or nearly use up a number of products around the same time and thought that this would be a good way to share them with you. Because if I used it up, it is probably something I really like and you should know about it!
