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’m loving the extraness with the little cleaver.

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.

 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?

Ouch. ;(

In the picture above, I have my go to anti-itch and calming cream along with the glam glow minis-Supercleanse and Thirstycleanse daily clearing cleanser (mattifying and hydrating) and a full size Thirstycleanse daily hydrating cleanser. All of these can be used daily. My skin ranges from a combination of dry and oily, or sometimes dry. It just varies. I was going to post a thorough review of the pictured items but…that stopped dead last night. Last night was my 3rd or 4th day using the supercleanse mattifying (white jar) Maybe I should have switched up the products, and used the hydrating cleanser..who knows..all I know was, after my shower my face was so dry. it was very itchy and red. My boyfriend tried it as well, his skin is more sensitive than mine so I didn’t really pay much attention, he just switched back to his normal cleanser. It did not do anything to my skin at first. Well…….here’s some awkward angles of my face.

photogrid_1486225246617photogrid_1486225187042 This was earlier this morning at the early times of 5 am when I woke up. last night there was redness all over, not as bad now but it still itches and a few white heads popped up 😦 it’s kind of hard to tell in the photos, but it’s there and it sucks. So, no makeup will be applied this weekend. I was so excited too, I have new goodies I wanted to try, but it’s best that I let my skin breathe and heal. After these photos were taken, I rushed to the nearest Wal-Mart to buy some Aveeno anti-itch cream. Has anyone tried these products and broke out? If so, please let me know. Have a good weekend lovelies.

Every time I open up my makeup drawers, my old palettes look me straight in the eyes and say, PLEASE USE ME!! I swear I can hear them saying that! lol So, with that being said, I busted out my Urban Decay Electric and Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Tamanna palette. I’m so glad I decided to create a look with both of them. I really need to do this more! It kind forms as a bad habit of buying so much and ignoring what we already have. One thing for sure is,  I didn’t really appreciate the quality of Anastasia’s eye-shadows until I used the palette again, some of them are buttery or applies well. It’s so easy to blend too! I’m inspired to create more looks with my older palettes. I hope you enjoyed this post and is inspired to dig into your makeup drawers!

ahhhhh! My glorious UV-B! I’m infatuated with this lipstick from Urban Decay! I wish I could have had better lighting, I really need to find my ring light or invest in a better one, that thing was crappy anyway. lol if anyone has any recommendations on a ring light, besides Neewer please tell me! I didn’t get to photograph my makeup that well, but on the bottom photo it’s closer to the actual color, the marvelous periwinkle shade! I might grab another vintage vice lippie soon, do you own any?

Bold Makeup♥♥

I’ve been trying to get back into doing some creative or bold looks, I need to practice more. I’ve been wanting to do more looks with different lip colors. I have so many Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks that I need to experiment with. And yes, before you bring up the drama surrounding J. Starr and his brand, I’m completely aware of his past allegations, Even though I do not agree with it, I think that people are allowed chances. and I will admit, I love watching his makeup videos. What looks should I create?
