JSC- Holiday 2017 Collection Pt.1 πŸŽ„ πŸ’š

I’m so excited to finally get my hands on some of Jeffree Stars 2017 holiday collection 😍. I feel like I’ve waited a lifetime for Beauty Bay to stock Jeffree’s new range, as expected the collection has pretty much sold out so I only managed to get two shades πŸ™„. Each shade retails at Β£16 and you can purchase them from Beauty Bay (when they come back in stock) which is Jeffree’s ONLY official UK retailer so don’t be scammed by fakes!

I purchased the shades Poinsettia and Berries On Ice but before I got into detail about these beauties I need to address the lipstick packaging first 😍! I’m seriously in love with this years lipstick bottle design, it’s so sparkly it’s unreal and I feel the photo’s don’t showcase how glittery it really is. I’m so obsessed with the pink sparkle and I love the fact the lipstick literally looks it’s been dipped in the glitter 😍.

Here is my swatch of Poinsettia and Berries On Ice:

I love both of them shades but my favourite has to be Poinsettia as it’s a true red that has the most beautiful metallic finish and the shade just reminds of Christmas. However the shade Berries On Ice is a deep magenta and I kind of have similar shades to this already but it’s still really pretty and it gives me major fall/winter feels.

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I’ve brought so many of Jeffree Star’s lipstick so I don’t feel the need to really talk about the formula because I personally find that his products are always consistent. However you may notice that this is only part 1 of my haul so stay tuned as I’m planning on expanding my collection and I’m defiantly getting his mirror 😍.

Fall Velvets By Kylie Cosmetics <3

I cant’t believe how fast November has passed and now we are just four weekends away from Christmas it’s crazy. Due to poor health recently I haven’t been able to post as much reviews as I would normally but I can happily say I feel a lot better then I did.

Anyway I know i’m pretty behind in reviewing/swatching Kylie’s new fall velvet lipsticks but I wanted to post about them because the shades are so stunning.

A month or so ago Kylie released eleven new shades to her velvet lipstick collection, these only consist of the liquid lipstick instead of the full lip kit that normally includes a lip liner too. Each liquid lipstick retails forΒ $16 which I think is pretty good.

The new shades are:

  • Basic
  • Birthday Suit {this shade has made a return from the Vacation collection}
  • Boy Bye
  • Brat
  • Commando {this shade has made a return from the Vacation collection}
  • Goals
  • Karma
  • Low Key
  • Punk
  • Savage
  • Surprise MeΒ {this shade has made a return from the Birthday 2017 collection}

I must admit i’m quite the fan of Kylie’s matte black packaging as it gives me major fall/winter vibes and I think the shade names are so fun and sassy too.

I only ended up purchasing five shades because I have so many lipsticks and I wanted ones that were different to ones I already own. The shade I purchased were:

  • Boy Bye {this is a pinky mauve}
  • Basic {this is a midtone taupe}
  • Goals {this is a soft strawberry}
  • Karma {this is a midtone raspberry}
  • Brat { this is a terracotta plum}

Here is my swatch:

As you can see from my swatch the shades are packed with serious pigment and the range of colours are stunning. I love the velvet formula as its so hydrating and I personally find that they last just as long as the mattes. The only shade i’m not so keen on is Goals as I found it too similar to the other velvet shade Dazzle so I wish I got the shade Punk or Savage which is sold out now :[.

What did everyone think of Kylie’s Black Friday sale, did you mange to pick up any bargains? Comment below and let me know :] <3.

πŸ₯œ Hazel πŸ₯œ

Guess who finally got their hands on the Hazel lipkit from Kylie Cosmetics πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ». I managed to purchase a genuine lipkit for a seller on depop for only Β£26 which I’m super happy about!

The shade Hazel is part of Kylie Cosmetics Fall 2017 Collection.

The shade Hazel is a warm nude, I’ve done multiple blog posts about Kylie’s formula so I don’t feel the need to go into massive detail. However as we all know matte lipsticks can be drying and as it’s so cold at the moment my lips have really suffered so instead I’ve just done a swatch on my arm, check it out:

First things first I love the smell of Kylie’s lipsticks they are so lush 😍. Also I do quite like this shade but I find it’s just a warmer version of Kylie’s shade called Brown Sugar.

When Kylie done her Black Friday sale I managed to get her purple palette and two lipkits which unfortunately I can’t swatch or try until Christmas as my boyfriend brought them for me 😌.

Let me knows in the comments what you purchased from Kylie Cosmetics.

The Ultimate Blow Dry by PROBLO πŸ’‹

I’m thrilled to be reviewing a hair related product as sometimes it’s nice to have a break from constantly reviewing makeup (even though I’m obsessed with it πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ).

Last week I purchased my first set of rollers from Pro Blo and I’m literally in love 😍!

I purchased the Ultimate Blow Out All Small set for Β£46 which has more value then the other sets. In the set you’ll receive:

  • 12 Small Barrels
  • 12 Hair Clips
  • 2 Handles
  • 1 VolumizeME
  • 2 Travel Bags

However just a quick disclaimer the rollers can’t be used on hair longer then 22 inches. Luckily my hair extensions are only 18 inches long so I was lucky that they would work.

I’ve always liked the idea of using rollers and this was my first time attempting a big bouncy blow dry.

I found the process of attaching the rollers and detaching the brush really easy and hassle free. Although once I had all the rollers in my head felt so heavy but you got to take into consideration that I have so much hair πŸ˜‚.

Once I had all the rollers in I allowed them to cool down for an hour.

When removing the rollers you need to do it in a upwards motion and then keep twisting the curls when they are released. Here is how my hair looked after I took the rollers

I love how my hair turned out it was super voluminous and I had really big bouncy curls. I wasn’t overly keen on how my top layers looked but I think that has more to do with how I applied the rollers to my hair so I think I need some more practice.

Although a few hours later I felt my hair had really dropped and didn’t stay as long as I had hoped.

As you can see my hair wasn’t as big as it was in the previous photo. Perhaps I should’ve used hairspray or other special products to help maintain my hairstyle.

Overall I do recommend the ProBlo rollers as they are good and I don’t think the price point was bad considering all the stuff I got for my money.

Ciate London- Glitter Flip βœ¨

As Christmas is looming we are in full swing for the party season which means plenty of glitter.

I’m so excited to finally get my hands on a glitter flip lipstick from Ciate London as they had been sold out for ages especially after when high profile bloggers like Laura Lee and Jeffree Star reviewed them.

There are seven shades in the glitter flip range with each lipstick retailing for Β£17 each. I purchased the shade “Infamous” which is a lovely berry colour which is perfect for the fall/winter season.

The whole idea of the Glitter Flip lipsticks are that when you first apply the lipstick you get a metallic layer which you leave to dry and then after 1 minute you rub your lips together to get a full glitter lip. Does it work…keep on reading below to see ;)!

When I first applied the lipstick I was so surprised at how pigmented it was I literally only had to dunk into the product once and it covered my lips perfectly. After the product dried for a minute I started rubbing my lips together and look what happened:

I’m literally shook I have no idea how this stuff works! To go from metallic to glitter in seconds is seriously epic. Here is a picture of my lips after they transformed into a beautiful glitter masterpiece:

As you can see there is a huge difference I felt the photo doesn’t do the glitter flip a lot of justice but in the video above you can really see the lipstick in its full glitter glory 😍.

I really recommend these lipsticks as the formula is long lasting and it’s super pretty. I think it’s a really great concept with the whole metallic that changes into glitter and I’m defiantly going to get some more shades!

πŸ’¨ Smokey Obsessions πŸ’¨

As you might’ve already seen Huda Beauty has recently released four new eyeshadow palettes that look so lush. I picked up the Smokey Obsessions palette for Β£25 from Cult Beauty.

However before I go any further I want to always keep my reviews real and honest. For Β£25 I was expecting at least a medium size palette but I was so shocked when I received the palette as it’s so small!

In my opinion I think the price point for this product is way off and for the size I would’ve personally been willing to pay Β£15 maximum!

The Smokey Obsessions palette has four matte and five shimmer shades that includes a intense black, warm shades of dark brown, taupe, champagne, gold and silver

What I love about the palette is that as the shades are quite versatile you can use this palette to create a banging Smokey eye or you can even create a beautiful neutral look for everyday.

Check out my swatch:

I’m seriously shook with the pigmentation of the 9 shades in this palette. I’m living for he shimmer shades as they feel so creamy I love the formula!

Overall I love the shades in the palette and I think they are so stunning but I just can’t get over the price point! I know I keep going on about the price but it’s only because I’m a huge believer in getting value for your money!

Mini Break πŸ’œ

Hey everyone I would like to start off by apologising for the lack of reviews. Unfortunately I’ve got a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst that has been causing me some bother for a while now and this last week has been dreadful for me pain wise :(.

However slowly but surely I’m getting myself back on track and I feel a lot better then I did (thanks to the old pain medication πŸ˜‚).

But on a happier note my lovely boyfriend surprised me by asking me to move in πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ.

Plus I’ve got loads of new makeup to show you guys so keep your eyes peeled πŸ™ŒπŸ».
