Hello Everyone!

Here’s a look I did recently, Even with my current situations going on, I started playing with makeup and doing things I enjoy. Things aren’t were I want it to be but with perseverance I will get there!  I created a look with Jeffree Star Cosmetic’s Beauty Killer Palette along with Juvia’s Place’s Masquerade Mini palette.

I tried out Burt’s Bees tinted lip oil and was annoyed by the red outline it gave me on my lips! Other than that it moisturized my lips. 💖

Life is certainly throwing me lemons!

Hello beauties,

I’m so sorry I’ve been on and off with journaling and documenting my makeup looks and hauls. I’ve been stuck in a bind! I feel like ever since my grandmother passed, Life has been snowballing. I’ve had one problem after another. My dog that I’ve had since middle school has passed, other things have affected our house hold, and I’m trying to move into our new home and it feels like something is stopping me, I received awful news yesterday and I feel like the Devil is trying to tear me down, but I know with the support of God and my boyfriend, I can get through this. I won’t let this win, I won’t back down! Please, if you can I’m in need of unspoken prayers, Thank you.

Love,

MomoxMonroe

Jeffree Star Beauty Killer Palette+Sidenote

Hello Loves,

I’ve been absent on my journal and documenting my makeup looks, I haven’t really done any looks due to a passing in my family, forgive my absence but now I’m back, thank you for understanding. 

xoxo


I’ve been wanting to try The Beauty Killer palette for so long, but I was so hesitant on purchasing the palette. Whenever Jeffree had his Winter Sale, I immediately added it to my cart along with 2 different liquid lipsticks in Crocodile Tears and Pumpkin Spice. When I received my package I was shocked! That palette is huge and so are the eyeshadows. Each Shadow weighs 2.52 grams each, which is very generous. These shadows should last you a long time, this palette is also permanent so don’t worry if you hit pan.

I’m loving the red packaging for the liquid lipsticks!

I love the detailing into the shadows.

All swatches were done with fingers and only swatched once! I’m really impressed with the pigmentation, some of it feels a little dry or chalky but doesn’t apply chalky at all. I haven’t been able to do much makeup lately but I’ve used Courtney and China White for my go to look and I honestly can say that nothing beats those two colors for me, I will be posting looks with this palette once everything goes back to normal in life for me.

Crocodile Tears and Pumpkin Spice swatched a little streaky, so I applied another layer to get a better photo of the colors. My only complaint with the these two is, it stays wet a little longer than what I want it to. but none the less, these two colors are gorgeous!

The Ulta eyeshadow in Silk is so pretty as a highlighter, You can see how much payoff I get as a highlighter on my cheeks and nose. The best of all, I got this on clearance for a $1. Be adventurous with makeup, just because it’s labeled as a blush doesn’t mean you can’t use it on the lids or as eyebrows 😛 I hope you have a good day.

Happy Early Valentine’s Day Everyone!

I hope tomorrow is filled with love, not just tomorrow but everyday for you all. Even if you’re single at the moment, celebrate the day with loved ones or friends. I believe everyday should be a day of love. My boyfriend and I won’t be celebrating until next weekend. We want to avoid the crowds, I can’t wait. We’re supposed to try out a steak house and have a movie date. It’s our usual but I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but anyways, I hope you all have a lovely day.

I seriously only had 30 mins to get my makeup done and 30 mins to dress and take makeup photos. My neighbors probably think I’m vain as heck because I’m snapping away in the front yard and also as we’re pulling off, with the FLASH ON! Lmao! I’m sure they think i’m a little selfie crazy, no worries, I just like taking makeup photos lol. Saturday was such a fun day, My boyfriend and I went to the movies in attempt to watch John Wick 2, which we both saw the first one on Valentine’s Day last time and loved the first one. When we arrived 2 other couples had walked out the theatre. There was no seats for us. That’s 6 people with no seats! Robinson was so frustrated, He had ordered ahead of time on Fandango as well as the other couple did. We ended up being able to switch to watch Lego Batman, which honestly was perfect, we were wanting to watch it next weekend anyways. I loved it! it was so funny and cute. It felt like more of a movie for the adults, not saying it was bad content for the kids, but it felt like a movie for the “big kids” and I’m certainly a big kid.We ended up going to the mall afterwards and I purchased some goodies from F21, Zumiez, and the Hanes Outlet! I did so much shopping, not just at the mall but on Amazon, But no more! lol, I usually don’t spoil myself so it felt good. Until next time, have a good day.

Kick Push♥ The Weekend Pickups-

Does anyone remember this song? When Lupe Fiasco’s first album Food and Liquor came out, I was obsessed. I’ve always wanted to learn how to skate, but I was so scared of getting hurt, I still am. But, I know in the back of my mind, it’s going to happen. I’m going to have bruises and scrapes but hopefully I don’t give up. Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to Zumiez to pick out a board for me, of course I had one in my mind already, the Sanrio collab with Girl, that came out awhile ago:

dsc06958_mh1486878473157

Today, I went to Zumiez once again in Nashville and bought myself a nice pair of skate shoes from Lakai. Be aware that these are men shoes hehe, so if you’re a girl, look up the size online or try them out for yourself in the store. My boyfriend also got a deck from Blind:

dsc06968_mh1486878864561

His came with a red stocking that is sitting on the floor next to him on the right. His was on sale from Christmas, I thought it was cute how the stocking was big enough for the board. Here goes my adventure with learning how to skate, he’s going to be teaching me so let’s go! And by the way, I already busted my ass. Lol! And guess who’s gf got their first skateboard? Louis from FunforLouis on youtube, He’s making me want to visit California so much more, it just looks so pretty and honestly, she’s doing so much better than me, hopefully I gain more confidence getting on the board. hehe.

 Earlier today I tried doing a cut crease! I haven’t done a cut crease in ages, I wanted to do something new that I usually don’t do, I wish my liner in the inner corner would have been cleaner but overall, I’m excited that I did it! I need a lot more practice but with time and patience, I’ll get there!  I created this look using Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 palette. I love the pigmentation in this palette, it’s too die for! What are your favorite looks to do?

Masquerade Mini vs Nubian 2 palette.

 

photogrid_1486259929903

Swatches courtesy of my boyfriend’s arm. 😛  The Masquerade Mini Palette, From Left to Right:

CHI, MALI,DALIA,ZOLA, MAKEDA,ZOBO,CALABAR, BORI,GIZA,BURKINA,CAIRO,ADA, DAHIA, ZULU, CASABLANCA, FULANI.

The color payoff in this palette, were so-so, if you can tell in the photo, most of the lighter or neutral shades didn’t swatch too well and maybe 2 of the brighter colors. I only swatched these shadows once. I wanted to show the true pigmentation of these. I did not use a base or any type of primer. These were also swatched with fingers and no brushes. Note that this palette is cheaper than the Nubian 2 palette, even though it has more shades, I’m assuming this is due to the pan sizes. Which is comparable in the photo above. I would say the pan sizes are about the same sizes as your standard MAC shadows.

Retail price- $30.00

The Nubian 2 palette, swatches from left to right:

MOROCCO, MADAGASCAR, SHEBA,YAA,JEZEBEL,ZURI,CLEOPATRA, NEFERTITI,NAIROBI,LEYLA,KENYA,EGYPT.

 

The color payoff in this palette is amazing, Most of the shadows were swatched only once. There were 2 colors that I messed up swatching, so I ended up doing it twice, but otherwise these shadows within this palette is nothing short of amazing, I can’t wait to do a look with both of these palettes, My face has finally calmed down after the weekend (if you read my last post) Yay! Can’t wait to do one.

Retail price- $35

You can always catch a deal on these palettes and watch out for bundle deals, they have them on sale now! 

This company is cruelty free and most of their products are vegan! The only palette that is not is the Saharan Palette.

Ordering and Shipping-

I placed an order on January 27th and received my palettes on February 1st. That is amazing to me! It came in so quick, I would definitely order from them again. ♥
