Jeffree Star Lipstick Swatches and Review

Hello loves!!

I’ve always been a huge fan of Jeffree Star. I discovered him on myspace in 2006. His music was INSANE and I loved it. He recently launched his lipsticks last Fall. He has more makeup coming out this year. I met him in April of this year and was just amazed by him. Emerald and I attended a makeup class and learned how to do a certain makeup look. He is so humble! He was extremely down to earth and sweet! We could ask plenty of questions and we got a free lipstick!

I currently have 3 of his liquid lipsticks, there are currently 13 out and available online. All of them are 100% Vegan and Cruelty free! They are only 18$ each, shipping from what I remember is around 4-6$, and I got the lipsticks within a week! I made a list of Pros/Cons.

Pros:
Long Lasting
Highly Pigmented
True Color
Vegan and Cruelty Free
Multiple uses (lipstick and eyeliner)
Dries Matte

Cons:
Hard to remove (kind of a good thing)

To remove them, I literally had to SCRUB them off my lips with a mix of soap and water, makeup remover, AND coconut oil. It’s kind of a good thing, because I ate with these lipsticks (avoid oily foods though) and they were fine! Jeffree also says they are kiss proof too 😉 xo

From top to bottom, I swatched the three lipsticks: I’m royalty, Prom Night and Abused. The picture on the left is with flash, the one on the right is without.

I know these lipsticks are bright and bold, but anyone can really rock the color. It doesn’t matter if you are light or dark, they will look good on anyone! I remember asking Jeffree a question on what looks good on who, and if certain colors look better on certain people. He told all of us in the class that we can rock anything we want to because we can do what we want. He said not to care what others think and their opinion is irrelevant.

I plan on getting a couple more of his lipsticks and can’t wait till his new other products come out! I know I’ll be reviewing more as I purchase them:} I’ll also be posting more pics of me wearing these lipsticks!

Hair essentials for Summer

Hiiiiiiiii –

It’s summer and I live in central Texas, It gets hot, humid and literally hellish. I have naturally wavy hair, so maintaining it can be quite a pain. Everyone knows putting heat on your hair is bad for you. During the summer time, it’s pretty much pointless to straighten your hair because it’ll frizz up due to humidity.

My holy grail of all summer hair items has come down to Sea Salt spray. Sea salt spray refreshes your hair and helps it stay controlled during the humidity. I spray it all over my hair and then scrunch the ends.

I use two different kinds of spray, the Marc Anthony Dream Waves spray and the Moroccan Sea Salt spray.

The March Anthony spray smells like coconut and the Moroccan Sea spray smells like fruit! There is no need to add any other product to your hair after using these items. The sprays are ideal for all hair types and lengths.

Let me know if y’all end up using these, they are both failry cheap and can be find at online or instore at Ulta. I haven’t checked but they might be at Walmart or HEB aswell.

DreamWaves: $8.99

I’m back! and BLONDE!

HELLO MY BABIES!

First let me say I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I AM SORRY I have been on almost a year hiatus. I’ve gone through a lot of personal issues that have kept me away from blogging and posting. It makes me really upset. I’ve had a hell of an end to 2014, but 2015 is already halfway over! I’m doing my best to make the most of it. I went through a loss of a friend, relationship and a loss of focus.

I am back and better then ever! I promise to be updating more frequently. I miss you guys! I promise videos to come, I’m still in the process of getting new equipment. That shtufff spensiveeee!!!

I also got selected to be a model in a hairshow! My modeling career has taken off this year. I’m really happy. If you are in the San Antonio area, please let me know so I can show you the link to buy tickets! It’s a showcase for RAW and there will be lots of makeup artist and hair artists present. A great networking opportunity. 😉

I LOVE YOU ALL. SEE YOU TOMORROW 😉

P.S. I’m BLONDE now! What do y’all think?

♡ SEPTEMBER IPSY BAG ♡

HI BABIES! ♡

It’s that time of the month again! Ipsy has sent me 5 products this month for me to try! I was super excited for this bag because Fall is beginning and I couldn’t wait to see what Ipsy had in store. If you already don’t know what Ipsy is, it’s a monthly makeup subscription. It is 10$ a month and you can cancel your subscription anytime! You take a beauty quiz and describe products you use/like, along with your skin tone and hair color. I’ve had Ipsy since March and I still love it! You get some full size and some trial size products. This month I received two full size products AND a double ended brush!!!!! If you would like to become an Ipsy member, please use my referral link by clicking HERE. I would greatly appreciate it 🙂

Isn’t the bag so cute? Super soft material with a little rocker-type studs near the zipper. I will definitely be reusing this for travel! This month I received the following:

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask. (1 fl oz)
Pacifica 100% Vegan 7 Free Nail Color in red red wine. (FULL SIZE!)
Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss in 08 love affair (FULL SIZE!)
Leeanni Eco 3 in 1 Revolution: Toner, Serum and Moisturizer (no size)
Crown Brush c476 Crease/Shadow double ended brush.

I’m very impressed with Ipsy this month. Good Job Ipsyiers.

I swatched the lip tint and nail polish. They will definitely compliment each other when worn together. Reds are always sexy, especially for fall! Can’t wait to try these on. I use to be very hesitant to try reds because I am very fair skinned, I have to be careful with what colors I wear. I’ve become more confident with wearing what I want. Lip products are my favorite and I don’t want to limit myself!

Here is a closeup on the brush I received from Crown: It reminds me of the brush that comes with the Naked 3 Palette from Urban Decay, but This brush is more dense and not as flexible. It’ll be great for crisp lines. Super ready to use this.

Videos coming soon! I also had a photoshoot earlier this week. I’ll be posting those pictures up also! I love you all and thank you all for your support! I am not the best beauty blogger/youtuber but I am trying to build my brand slowly but surely. Being a full time student and working full time drains me, but I love it. The dreams that I have will take hard work and I know I will get there…one day 🙂

♡Boots♡

Super Duper Amazingly IN LOVE with these combat boots I snagged from Target!

They were 34.99!!! A definite must have for Fall and Winter. I’m technically “cheating” since I am wearing them already and it’s still as hot as the devil’s house in Texas, but I’m hoping by me wearing them, Texas gets the hint 😉

♡ FALL NAILS ♡

HEY BABES-

I apologize for the lack of posts…I started classes again and have been super busy :(. I’m working on it, I swear. Anywho, Happy September! Fall is just around the corner for most people. Here in Texas, it’s still about 104. I’m not letting this heat stop me from my transition into Fall though! I went to get a fill and decided to go a dark, plum color. The color is from OPI (my absolute fave nail polish brand) and the name is “Everyday Is Oktoberfest.” It has a bit of orange shimmer, and it looks so great with gold accessories. I plan on keeping my nails this color for a while, if I change it up, this color will definitely be a color I will be coming back to this season! Gold ring is from Forever 21 and silver/bronze is from Charming Charlie.
