My Pretty Zombie Lipsticks and an Eyeshadow! Swatches Here!

Hi readers! I got a package today! My Pretty Zombie recently had an awesome sale to celebrate their seventh year in business. They released a bunch of new products like lipsticks, hand sanitizer, eyeshadow, finishing powder, contour, highlight, and there is a fun set featuring the B-Horror movie, Dolly Deadly. They also ran a sale from July 1st to July 8th. The best thing is that they threw in a free eyeshadow, named 43. 

I opened my bubble package to these two cute bags! I adored this skull bag so much I kept it as my new sample bag keeper lol.
I seriously have never been so excited to open these bags. It made me smile so big. The sample bag had so much nice stuff in it! Grape Pez (yass!), a sticker, a pin, makeup samples, a cat figurine, and the full-size eyeshadow, 43. If somehow the owner of this company is reading this, thank you ❤
Here is a photo of all the makeup including the samples I received today. There is a sample of Pickles’s Miraculous Beauty Dust in Gold Glow, Rabid Weasel eyeshadow and Reclusa, a pretty orange blush. The full-size items are Exsanguinate and Rabid Weasel lipsticks and 43 and Revenge is Sweet eyeshadows. I have done swatches and reviews on the full-size items. 
Here are the back labels of the two lipsticks and eyeshadows. Both of the eyeshadows are vegan yet only one is lip safe. The distribution information and website are on the bottom and the weight is 1.5 grams. The lipsticks are both cruelty-free and they are not vegan. 
Here is a close-up of the eyeshadows 43 and Revenge is Sweet. Check out how pretty these look! Revenge is Sweet is a pretty magenta shade with purple sparkle. 43 is this beautiful teal shade with a slight shimmer.
Here is a close-up of the lipsticks. Exsanguinate is a bright and bold red with a pretty shimmer to it. Rabid Weasel is a blueish gray.

Here come the swatches! I have done arm swatches of all the full-size products and labeled them like I usually do with finger swatches and brush swatches.

Here are the arm swatches of all the products. 43 is this beautiful teal frosted shade. When used with a brush, it is more bold but I love how subtle it looks when brushed with my finger. I’m in love with this. Revenge is Sweet is a magenta reddish shade with purple sparkles that offer a gorgeous shimmer. Rabid Weasel is a transparent gray that makes a nice subtle color. Exsanguinate is a gorgeous red with subtle gold sparkle in it. All four of these shades are pigmented and very easy to work with.

Next are the lip swatches of Rabid Weasel and Exsanguinate. I also used Revenge is Sweet on my eyes today. Check these out below!

I loved this shade so much. Rabid Weasel is this beautiful transparent gray. It gives off such nice dead girl vibes. This shade is scented like lemon and lime. Revenge is Sweet compliments this lip shade as a pop of color.
Exsanguinate really makes a statement with how pretty and bold it is. It smells like strawberry lemonade and really makes beautiful warmth on your face.

That’s all for my review on these new products! If you haven’t checked them out, please do! The lipsticks were $6 each and the eyeshadow was $5! Give them a try! Xo

Jeffree Star Cosmetics 2016 Summer Collection Swatch!

Hi everybody! Happy Friday! I stepped out my door and it was disgustingly hot outside so I decided to swatch Jeffree Star’s summer collection from last year. The entire collection was five shades and cost $75. I was really excited when this came out but was slightly disappointed in the pigmentation and texture. I loved the colors and names but they were really streaky. All the shades were scented with the exclusion of (714) which was brought back as a previous limited edition shade. Unfortunately,  I threw away the boxes that these came in so I can’t show photos of those. Sorry 😓😓😓

Here are the shades from the 2016 collection. They had a pretty bright yellow and hot pink theme going on. There was also a great variety of shades included.
Here are the bottoms of the tubes. They have the shade name, company information and ounces. Each tube has 0.19 ounces of product. 
Here is a quick shot of the applicator. This is the usual Jeffree doe foot he uses for his lip products. They have flexibility to them but nothing crazy. The applicators pick up a decent amount of product. 

I have swatches for you of this collection! Yay! I have arm swatches and then a collage of all the lip shades on. Doing multiple lip swatches really kill my lips. They’re sore haha. 💋

Here are the arm swatches for you all. The first shade is Nude Beach. This reminds me of a beige peach shade. The next shade is (714) and is a light coral pink shade. Virginity is next and is a beautiful Lilac shade. Queen Bee was the most unique shade in the set being bright yellow. Watermelon Soda is my favorite and applied the best and has the best coverage. I would say this is a bold dark pink shade. 
Here are the lip swatches. The first row is Nude Beach and (714). The bigger picture on the bottom is Virginity and then the top is Queen Bee and Watermelon Soda. I would have to say that Queen Bee was the most difficult shade to work wirh because it was so streaky and a thick formula. (714) needed about three coats to make it stand out because it was very thin and streaky.

These were the colors for last year’s summer collection. I would say if you collect makeup, buy it but honestly, you’re not really missing much because of the inconsistent texture and pigmentation.

Too Faced La Crème Unicorn Tears Review!

Hi friends! This product has been out for a while and it has also had it’s share of being sold out off and on. I’m not a huge fan of Too Faced but I really wanted to see what the hype about Unicorn Tears was about. This lipstick color shifts which Is pretty cool and I would have to say it reminds me of LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs and their Lacrimosa shade. The last time I went to Ulta, Unicorn Tears was in stock and cost $22. 

Here is the packaging for Unicorn Tears. I do enjoy the design and how feminine it is. This product is 0.11 ounces.
On this side of the box we have the ingredient list. It has jojoba oil in it 🙂 
This side of the box has the website information and states that this product has lip conditioners in it. 
The bottom of the box is where you find the serial code (7D1) and the barcode. I’m not sure if this product is duplicated or not but I would rather be safe.
This is the lipstick tube that the La Crème line comes in. These are made of metal and feel very durable.
This is what the bottom of the tube looks like. It has the shade name and distribution information.
Here is what the lipstick looks like in the tube. It is a frosted blue that has sparkle in it. I tried to capture the sparkle in the picture.

I have an arm and lip swatch for you all to enjoy so you can further see the color shifting in the lipstick. 

I took this arm swatch using the flash to further bring out the blue sparkles. As you can see, it applies pink and has a blue shift and sparkle.
Here’s what Unicorn Tears looks like applied to the lips. It has a faint orange cream scent and is a lot more blue than it was on the arm swatch. I do like this as being a unique sheer shade.

There you guys have it! Like I said before, I’m not a huge Too Faced fan but I did enjoy this product. Xo

Jeffree Star You.Better.Work. Liquid Lipstick Collection 2017

Hi friends and all new subscribers! Today I waited anxiously by the door for the Jeffree Star Summer 2017 collection. I bought this set from Beautylish because of the issues I had trying to buy the Jeffree and Manny collab off of his site. This collection was $105 and qualified for free two-day shipping. I ordered it at 1:00 PM EST and they shipped it out by 5:30 PM the same day. Beautylish has great shipping and their customer service is so good. I didn’t grab the complete vault because $195 is a lot of money and I’m not a fan of regular lipsticks so I wasn’t going to be using a lot of the products in the vault. 

Let me start by saying that this year’s formula is definitely improved from last year’s 2016 set. I enjoyed the colors from last year but the formula made me so freaking sad. This year the metallic shades, Flamboyant and Candyass, are the only two that are scented. They smell like strawberries and, I wanted to drink them. 

Here is what it looked like in the packaging. Beautylish has the tissue paper that has all of Jeffree’s tattoos all over it.
Here is the box that it comes in. It is a pretty frosted pink box that is a decent size. It magnetizes shut which is nice.
When you open the box all the liquid lipsticks are in their own individual packaging.
When you take them out of their boxes please take note that these do not fit in very snug. Don’t go shaking the box around if you plan to store them like this. 😂😂
Here they are out of the box and looking pretty. They have chrome toppers and the dark pink logo font.
Here is the bottom of the lipsticks. I only used one since they all have the same set up. It has the shade name, brand name and how many fluid ounces it is. Keep note of the bottoms just in case you buy from another place and aren’t sure if yours is a fake or not.
This is what the applicator looks like. It is a slanted doe foot with a bit of flex to it. It picks up a decent amount of product and applies it smoothly. I apologize for my nails. Camping does that to a lady. Haha.

Before we talk swatches I wanted to show you box shots before all of that just in case all these sell out and you have to buy from a third party retailer. I used shade ‘Butt Naked’ as my reference. 

Here is the front of the box. You can see the chrome quality the box has along with the pink logo.
This side of the box describes the product as vegan, cruelty-free, matte, long lasting and extreme beauty. It has instructions to follow and the company distribution information.
This side of the box has Jeffree’s website, YouTube and Instagram. It also has the cruelty-free bunny logo.
This side has the name of the shade, a reminder to shake the lipstick and the ingredient list. There is also a UPC. 
This picture is very important. The bottom of the box has the batch codes for authenticity. For Butt Naked and You. Better. Work., the serial code is 7D1, Calabasas is 7E2, Venus Flytrap, Family Jewels and Hunty, is 7D2 and the metallics, Candyass and Flamboyant do not have serial codes.

For the swatches, I included an arm swatch of all the shades and one of those fancy lip swatch collages! Here we go!

These were taken in the sunlight through my window. They are not enhanced in any way. Okay, the lightest shade is Butt Naked. This is a matte light peachy beige nude shade. It actually compliments my skin tone so I was very with it. Calabasas got it’s name from where Jeffree lives in California. This is a matte dark plum shade that reminds me of a lighter Androgyny. Venus Flytrap is an electric greenish yellow matte. I adore how unique this shade is. It looks great on! It does take more than one coat to be really bold but it is so worth it. Family Jewels is next. This shade is a brownish plum shade. If Dominatrix and Androgyny had a baby, it would be Family Jewels. Hunty is of course, great. This dark nude compliments my olive skin tone without skipping on coverage and pigment. You. Better. Work. was the shade that had me the most excited for this launch. I adore all shades of purple in lipstick and this bright purple was a necessary purchase for my everyday looks. Flamboyant is a bright red with red and silver metallic qualities in it. Candyass is a light coral pink with gold and silver sparkles in it. Both of these metallics go on smooth and light and smell wonderful. 
Here are the lip swatches of all the shades. The top row is Butt Naked and Hunty. Row two is Calabasas and You. Better. Work. Row three is Venus Flytrap and Candyass. The last row is Family Jewels and Flamboyant.

I hope you enjoyed this really long review and reveal of the products. Hopefully this was useful if you were still wondering what to purchase. Xo

Tarte and Sephora Birthday Exclusive Reward!

Hi friends! My birthday is in six days and then I kiss my 20s goodbye. When I did my last Sephora purchase I decided to cash in some points and grab my birthday gift. They had the Fresh skincare set, a Jack Black skincare set and this new Tarte blush and lipstick mini that I’ve never seen before. I was intrigued and chose this cute guy.

Look at how cute this little duo is! Both are very light shades that compliment every skin tone. 

I took a bunch of photos of this cute bundle and yes the shades are exclusive to the birthday set. 

The back of the box shows that this set is vegan and cruelty-free! Yay! It has an ingredient list of both the blush and the lipstick and their names!

This was a pretty shot of both products. My vanity is proving to be a nice place to take detailed photos. 

Now for the swatches. I did a brush and finger swatch of the blush and a lip swatch of the lipstick. Enjoy!

Here is the arm swatch of the blush. If you notice, it is very subtle when a brush is used. 

And now for the lip swatch!

Please excuse the discontent on my face. It was in the middle of a year wave and I wasn’t too happy. Haha. This shade is a darker nude that works great with my skin tone. 

There you all have it! I enjoyed both products and this nude lipstick actually doesn’t look awkward like some of them do on my skin. Xo!

Fantasy Allure Liquid Lipstick Swatch!

Hi friends! Today I decided to swatch Fantasy Allure’s only liquid lipstick shade, ‘Enchanted Rose’. This was originally a kickstarter campaign from last year. If you donated a certain amount of money you received the lipstick and a fun gift. I did the $30 donation for the lipstick and a compact mirror. 

They describe this shade as a ‘deep red with gold glitter’. It also has a faint vanilla scent and completely dries down in about three minutes. It is pretty long lasting but if you are eating, you may need to reapply. This is also vegan and cruelty-free! Yay! 

I like this shade and seriously wish there were more colors. I know they stated in their campaign that if they raised more money than they were asking, they would release more colors. I’m still silently hoping it happens. 

Here is what the tube looks like for the lipstick. I love the crown gold topper and it is a clear tube so you can see the gold sparkles in the red lipstick.
Here is the bottom of the tube. It has a very pretty rose design in the middle with the name of the shade. There is also the LLC of the company, the lot number and the location where it was made.
Here is what the applicator looks like. It has a hard doe foot. It is a good applicator and grabs a decent amount of product for coverage. 

For the swatches, I did an arm swatch for you all and then a lip one so you can see it applied!

Here is what the arm swatch looks like. It is definitely a red and you can see how subtle the sparkles are yet so pretty.
Here is the lip swatch of Enchanted Rose. I love how dramatic and so subtle it is. This doesn’t dry out your lips and it stays for a decent amount of time.

There you guys have it! This is for sale on their website along with some fairy claw thingies. Grab both if you Like! Xo

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Holiday 2016 Liquid Lipsticks!

Hi friends! Sorry I got my posts up so late today but my daughter is finishing up Kindergarten and I had some random things to do today. This came out last year around the Christmas holiday. It retailed for $99. In Jeffree Star Cosmetics’s Holiday Collection there were seven shades that could be bought together or separately for $18 each. If you have been reading my posts for a bit now you know that Jeffree’s lipsticks are my go to. His new Summer Collection is launching June 24th. So before that launches, I wanted to put up more of his shades.

Here is the collection all tigether looking cute. I purposely separated Deceased and Sagittarius just because they are so close in color.
Here are the bottoms of the lipsticks. They have the name of the lipstick, how many ounces it has (0.19 ounces, and the company information.
Here is what the applicator looks like for each lipstick. This guy is a pointed doe foot that has a nice flex to it which makes application smoother.

As usual for you all, I have arm swatches of each shade and a nice collage of all the lip swatches! Enjoy!

Here are the first four shades. Chrysanthemum is a light pink with tiny gold sparkles in it. This is a very cute spring shade that is very flattering and subtle. Deceased reminds me of Makeup Monsters and their Wolfsbane shade. It is a greige gray shade that is pigmented and lasts very long. Crocodile Tears is an awesome matte dark green that I love. It isn’t for everyday wear but I do enjoy when people ask about it. Checkmate was named by Nathan. This neon red smells like cherries and is very bright. Sometimes this shade has some flaking but that’s after a few hours.
Here are the last three shades in the collection. Sagittarius is a light purple mixed with gray shade. I love this one. It has great pigmentation and long wear. Designer Blood is the exact dark cranberry red as Unicorn Blood but when this color dries, it has a subtle gold shift to it. The last shade, Pumpkin Pie is a burnt orange with pink and purple sparkles in it.  I’m such a fan of orange lipsticks. 

Here is the collage of the lip swatches!

As you can see here this collection has a very nice variation of color. I love different shades especially if they’re versatile. Xo
