New Theory Lippie Stix Kit contains 6 lippie stix: Ink Blot (matte), Sike (matte), Little Tings (creme), Lullaby (matte X), Fly-Fi (matte X), and Persuasion (matte). I was really excited over the new Matte X, of course, and I was pleasantly surprised by the matte formula of the lippie stix working beautifully for me! The colors that they chose for Matte X, though, are AMAZING! I was bowled over by Fly-Fi because this color is ridiculously unique to me – I expected it to be deeper, and was super impressed by the muted quality looking so FLY! All face photos have Clock Work Pressed Powder Face Duo and the #EOTD will be explained toward the end of the post.

Butterfly Lux Lipstick Collection has special packaging, which was also hand-drawn by the graphic design team. It’s ridiculously gorgeous, and I’m all about nautical, mariner-style stripes this spring, so this really floated my boat! The collection contains 8 Lux Lipstick: Tip Toe, Carousel, Afterglow, Dream Easy, Reverie, Angel City, Unravelled, Nu Wave. The formula of the Lux Lipsticks has been discussed in the past.

Besides the 6 Pretty Fly Super Shock Shadow Set, there are 8 gorgeous Super Shock Shadows. I’m always a sucker for ColourPop’s eyeshadows, be it the original bouncy, dreamy Super Shock Shadows or the pressed powder shadows. And, how adorable is the packaging for each?
The 8 Super Shock Shadows are Bubble Bee, Exo, Superfly, Ladybird, Ripple, Buzzin, Polly and Race You.

#EOTD was created using Superfly all over lid, Exo on mid-lid to outer lid, Ripple on outer lid and crease, Soul-cialize on tear duct to inner crease, and Up in the Air in outer crease.
And, finally, we have the 3 Pressed Powder Face Duos. Again, gorgeous artwork!

This collection is definitely one of my favorites, thus far! I really enjoyed all the colors and thought put into each product and packaging. I’m absolutely a huge fan of the lipsticks – both the lippie stix and Lux Lipsticks! They are excellent, and the prices can’t be beat. Also, I was thrilled to bits with the new additions of the face palettes because they are my favorite thing and MUST-HAVES for my makeup bags, especially during travel. My most anticipated product, however, was Superfly, but when I watched it, it was extremely sheer. I’m assuming the thought behind this is to be a topper like the way a fly’s wings are sheer. It’s still gorgeous, but I do wish it were much more opaque. I’m sure if it were put over a matte shade similar to the base, it would look fantastic. There are plenty of pieces, so you can easily pick and choose what you like or grab it all!
