Jenn Im X ColourPop - Jenn Ne Sais Quoi Review

In the summer, Vlogger Jenn Im collaborated with ColourPop to release a stunning range of makeup. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Jenn Ne Sais Quoi eye shadow palette and it's a fantastic one at that. A mix of neutral mattes, metallics and satins, giving you a great choice of looks for day and night.

If you haven't heard of ColourPop, listen in. They were founded in 2014 and they pride themselves on being bunny approved and kind to your wallet. They have a huge range of makeup with an extensive choice of shades. Unfortunately for us British folk, you can only buy from the US and with high shipping costs, it's not something you would want to order regularly. I'm keeping my eyes and ears open for a UK launch.

Shades in the set:

Un - Metallic light gold
Deux - Satin chocolate brown
Trois - Satin deep red
Quatre - Matte dark brown

This was my first experience with ColourPop eyeshadows and I'm pretty impressed. They are highly pigmented and super creamy. As you can see from the usage, I tend to go for Un and Quatre mostly. I work Un into the inner eye, blending it out into Quatre. Blending is so easy and doesn't require much work. I then use Quatre underneath my lower lashes to finish. Trois is a great shade but as it's satin, I feel it doesn't get the justice it deserves. I will always go towards metallic shades and I wish this was. Having said that, If you're looking for a autumn rusty red, this would be perfect.

Left to right: Un, Deux, Trois, Quatre (Of course!)

DIY Copper Home Decor On A Budget

Unless you've been living on Mars, I'm sure you've noticed that copper is the colour of the moment. Whether it's make up, homeware or clothing, copper hues can be seen pretty much everywhere. When it comes to copper home decor, it can be quite expensive and you can soon find yourself spending £40+ on just a couple of items. With copper homeware wish lists up to my ears, I went down to my local Hobby Craft to see what was on offer.

DIY Copper Letters
I picked up these Mache letters and Acrylic copper paint for just over £10. I knew these would just sit on a shelf at home so there was no need to use a hard wearing, expensive paint or to top coat them. The Hobby Craft own brand paint is £2 per tube and this copper shade was perfect.

I gave the letters a first coat of paint and let this dry for around 10 minutes. I repeated the process and gave each 3 coats in all, carefully applying each coat without leaving brush marks. I let them all dry overnight and this is how they looked the next day....

I was super happy with the final result. You really can't tell they are cardboard just by looking at them! I love how they look metallic but are still matte.

DIY Copper Plant Pots
I'd been looking for some copper pots to put my growing succulents in but all were really expensive. I had quite a bit of copper paint left over from the letters so I went to my local discount store and picked up some plain terracotta pots for 60p each, bargain! The acrylic stuck really well to the terracotta and I only needed one coat. I loved the rough, brush marks that it left and gave a really nice effect. If you want a more hard wearing finish, you can always apply a top varnish or sealer.

And here's how it all looks! We are currently decorating our front room and painting our furniture so it ties in with the copper decor. Keep an eye out for the finished look!
