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!

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?

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. ♥

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!

Wet n Wild Beauty Reviews♥

photogrid_1485679788266_mh1485679956121

Wet n Wild has been in the makeup industry since 1979, The prices have remained incredibly low since the beginning of it’s launch. it was founded in NY, and was moved to Los Angeles, California. The brand has always been cruelty free, which is seriously brownie-points! You can find this brand online and in different drug stores such as Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Walmart etc. This is one of the many first brands I’ve ever had as a younger girl and definitely during my teenage years. Not to say that this brand only caters to the younger audience but this can cater to all different ages. I’ll be doing some reviews on my latest purchases. 20170128_134650-02-1

I would love to start out by reviewing the Photo Focus Foundation and Powder. 1 plus factor of this foundation that it has a spatula connected to the lid. This makes it easier than thumping the bottom of the bottle and pouring it on your fingers, brush, or beauty blender. The foundation has a thin creamy texture and applies evenly. This is a light to medium coverage and is build-able. It did have a slight smell, not a chemical smell but something like wax. It’s not bad but it’s there. I did find myself needing some concealer and this did sink into my pores which I was not a fan of. I did use a primer before applying this foundation. You can see a before and after photo below: There isn’t any filters applied and both were taken in daylight.

My skin in my opinion isn’t that bad, I have some imperfections and I do have 3 pimple spots. You can see them in the right photo, one on my chin, right next to my eyebrow and one on my left cheek. The foundation was not forgiving on my imperfections and made my skin look a little rough. Did it last for 8 plus hours? Yes, did it melt off? No. Will I try it again? Yes, I might need to try a different type of primer but my skin doesn’t look this bad usually with foundation on. Now onto the powder, What I didn’t like about it was…it was POWDERY. when I swirled my powder brush into the product, it went everywhere. You could see a powder cloud around the compact while I swirled. It did do it’s job on the skin but I just did not like how it made somewhat of a mess. it felt really cheap.

Photo Focus Foundation- $5.99 Photo Focus Powder- $4.99

The Megaglo Illuinating Palette in Catwalk Pink is huge, it has 11.5 grams of product in it which is the same amount of product in a MAC sculpt and shape powder. The palette has 4 sparkly shades which range from a white gold, light pink, dark rose shade and then a gold. It does blend well, I used all 4 shades on my cheeks pictured above and as my cupid’s bow as well. I only used the white gold on the tip of my nose,  Which honestly there’s not much of a difference. is it worth it? It’s not one of those over the top “blinding” highlights but the payoff is there. I think it’s a good highlighter but I wouldn’t say it’s a favorite. I feel good about it, it is sitting inside my makeup bag. I also purchased the cushion highlight illuminateur. Which I will do a review soon.

Megaglo Illuminating Highlight Powder- $4.99 

The Color Icon Eyeshadows  , I really don’t need to do much of an introduction to their shadows, they’ve been around for a long time and I’m never disappointed in them. They have a really good color pay off and I never regret buying them ever. The only thing about their shadows-a lot of them are shimmery. but still has a strong swatch. They’re affordable and if you don’t want the bigger palette, they have small individual shadows  or the 3 eyeshadow trios.  and finally, my wrap up for this review is the gel lip liners, they are so pretty! They glide on so effortlessly and is crazy-pigmented. I love them. and they are not hard, they go on softly. The Color Icon lip gloss are a little sticky but nothing too much where it was uncomfortable or annoying. I think overall it’s something I would repurchase.

  • (8 shades) Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection- $4.99
  • Individual Shadows $0.99 (holy cow!!)
  • (3 shades) Color Eyeshadow Trio- $2.99
  • Color Icon Lip Gloss- $2.99
  • Gel Lip Liners-$2.99

Overall, the products were so-so but good enough to keep! I hope you enjoyed this review, see you soon lovelies!
