Jeffree Star X MannyMUA Liquid Lip Swatches!

Hi all! Did you all purchase anything from this launch on Saturday? I had a bit of a fit on Saturday with this launch. Let me set the scene for you all. Typically when I know there’s a huge launch, I log onto the site about five minutes before, set up my login credentials, and see if there’s anything else I could buy. 

To be honest, I didn’t need anything but the bundle so I sat and waited. One o’clock rolled around and I put the bundle in my cart. I clicked checkout and PayPal and then a message came up. A message that said, there was a lot of traffic in the site and to hold on tight and it would process you through to your purchase. Basically a queue line. Let’s just say I hit checkout at 1:01 PM and was stuck there for 30 more minutes. When the page cleared, the bundle was sold out and in my opinion, completely messed up.

In complete frustration, I went on Beautylish and purchased the two lipsticks because I don’t wear much highlighter and it would have been a waste of money. I scored free two day shipping and now we’re here! I’m so happy with these. One nude shade and one gorgeous red. Let me show you all the things!

I love ordering from Beautylish, especially when it is a Jeffree item. The wrap is flash of all of his tattoos. It included a sticker of the collaboration logo.
Here they are in the boxes! The boxes have this really neat holographic shimmer to it. Love.
I wanted to capture how beautiful these are in the sun for you all. I love the black packaging with the holograms all over.

I swatched these for you all! I did an arm swatch and then on the lip! Enjoy!

Here they are! All labeled and gorgeous! These swatched very nice! They’re super smooth!
This nude is awesome. It wasn’t patchy and went on super smooth. Please excuse my face in this picture, I think it looks funny but at least the shade showed up. Just look at my lips haha.
Yes. This is my new favorite color and I hope it becomes a permanent shade! I love oranges as we all know and this is just fantastic. I think I rock colors better than nudes.

Either way, grab these. They’re a great consistency, great shades and an overall pretty collaboration. Great work, guys ❤❤

Jeffree Star X MannyMUA lawsuit with Black Moon Cosmetics Details! (Lawsuit Settled) 

You know how I said that Jeffree bring a lot of drama because of things that are said and done? Well, it’s happened again but to a huge legal degree. 

On April 3rd a lawsuit was filed by Black Moon Cosmetics stating that Jeffree and Manny’s collaboration is a blatant copy of their design and logo. To be honest, the similarities are uncanny. If you want to read the full complaint, you can find it right here. (You will also see the screenshot of Manny gushing over their packaging so he’s aware that the company was around even before him using the logo with his Makeup Geek Collaboration.) The black background is a sure copy. They could have used pink with a hologram or anything. 

This is my personal Cosmic Eyedust Vault showing the holographic logo. There are some of my Jeffree liquid lips to the side.
Here are both of the brands side to side to note the similarities.

Considering that their collaboration was due to launch on April 8th, nothing has been said if it is delayed yet. 
Black Moon Cosmetics started in 2015 by a mother and daughter. They have their own website to purchase their liquid lipsticks and cosmic eyedust right here. They also are huge on Instagram and feature a bunch of their customers wearing their products and reviewing them. They are a vegan and cruelty-free company that has a killer formula. To be honest, they’re one of my favorite brands. I love them so much. I’m not an affiliate or paid to say so. I paid for all the makeup you see me swatch out of my own pocket so I form MY OWN opinions rather than being paid for them. 

If you know me personally, I’ve always recommended Jeffree’s products as I love his formula on eyeshadows and of course the liquid lips. I can’t live without Unicorn Blood or Androgyny, I’ve tried. The first huge blow for me was the mini feud between him and Kat Von D. A lot of people sided with their favorite and stopped using the other. They both made video responses to each other and stopped talking. I kept using both products because I love them both and I thought, hey, it happens. Some people are more dramatic than others. Now this. And I’m going to leave it at this. 

Edit: As seen on Manny’s Snapchat, he said that this lawsuit is settled. 

Tarte X Grav3yardgirl Swamp Queen Palette Swatches!

I know this palette has been out for a while, but I just started a swatch blog and it is in my collection. I have a bunch that I’m going to upload for you all for awareness on how things swatch by brush and finger for an accurate representation of shades and shadows.

This palette is a collaboration with beauty influencer Grav3yardgirl. It is a limited edition full face palette and still in stock for $45 on Tarte’s website. Basically, I love her.  Not only does she do makeup looks and fashion views, but she does a really funny YouTube series called, ‘Does This Thing Really Work?’ Where she reviews As Seen On TV products! Yes!

Here it is! I love the design on here. An alligator with wings! The look and feel of it being wood is great also.
Here’s the back of the palette. There’s no preview of shades or anything on the back except for the serial number and the net weight of the products inside.
Here’s the inside of the palette! It has a bronzer, blush, highlighter and nine eyeshadows! There’s a brush and an awesome mirror that says, ‘Believe in Yourself. Love Yourself. Embrace Your Individuality.’ The palette also smells like chocolate 🙂 to be honest, it’s not an obnoxious scent or overpowering. It is pretty nice.
Here’s the brush that comes with the palette. I decided to do the brush swatches for this palette with the brush provided 🙂

For the swatches, I did the face shades first and then three eyeshadows at a time by row.

First we have the bronzer, ‘Sweet Tea’. It has sparkles in it for extra shine. It is a bit dark for my tone but I can blend it out quite well. The blush, ‘Does This Thing Really Work?’ is a deep rose shade with sparkle in it. I love it. Last, we have the highlight, ‘Gator Wings’. I love the shade of this. However, the fallout is insane. When I used it on numerous occasions, it got all over my shirt, face, coat… everywhere. Pretty but hard to work with. :/
The first row has the shades: #SFS, Big Baby and Haunting. These are your base shades. #SFS is a shimmer base for browbone usage or eye. Big Baby is a beige shade and Haunting is more up my alley being a slight matte purple shimmer. All three of these swatch nicely by finger and brush.
These three shades include: Natural Peaches, Sassy Bun, and Uncommon. These are some really nice lid shimmer shades. Natural Peaches is a really subtle peach that can be used for a crease or base. Sassy Bun is one of my favorite shades in the whole palette. I love how gold and shimmery it is. Uncommon is a shimmery purple shade.
Here’s the last row of the palette. The three shades are: Dogman, Sippy Sippy and Mancat. Dogman is a nice burnt orange shade with sparkles. Note the difference between the finger and brush. The brush is lighter and brings out more orange which I love. Sippy Sippy has a difference in shades and has really nice sparkles in it. Mancat and Sippy Sippy are quite similar but Mancat has no sparkles and is more of a matte purple.

That’s it for all the swatches and review of this collaboration! Besides the highlighter, I love this palette. I reach for it for nice orange looks and completely reminds me of fall. I have no idea how long Tarte is going to keep this in stock so if you were curious about it, grab one!

Anastasia Beverly Hills X Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit Swatches!

Hi! I think the only palette that I have left to review as far as Glow Kits go are Sweets and of course Aurora when that comes out on April 4th. (Have you seen how pretty it is?!) I’ll be adding a post about it soon! This kit is the most recent from ABH, sold out everywhere, and it was a collaboration with Nicole Guerriero. Nicole is a YouTube beauty influencer. This highlight palette is rad. It has a nice variation of shades and they’re buttery and shinyyy… ohhh. I get majorly distracted by shiny things.😂😂 anyways, let’s get on with the photos!

Look at how glittery this is! Also, the words are a hologram rainbow! The same holds true for the Moonchild palette and still adorable!
The back of the kit looks the same as the others that I’ve reviewed before. The serial code is there for your buying needs. Also, note the cruelty-free bunny and…. THE VEGAN NOTE! Yes! A vegan glow kit ❤
Here are the shades! The pans are still decent size! They’re smaller than the ones in the original kits but hey, you get six shades instead of four! The shades are: Kitty Kat, Forever Young, Daydream, Forever Lit, Glo Getter, 143.

And here’s the finger swatches of this!

Here they are! In my opinion, Kitty Kat is awesome for a slight highlight. Daydream is this really unique orange tone that blends pretty well with blushes. For the extreme highlighters Forever Lit is bright and possibly blinding! Remember, if you’re not big on highlighting, you can use these on your browbones, eyelids and your inner corner.

As it seems, ABH is putting out glow kits at a fast pace. They’re beautiful and always sell out. Do not sleep on their glow kits.

MannyMUA X Jeffree Star Collaboration Details!

Finally! There were details given! I’ve been waiting for the big reveal since Manny and Jeffree showed the boxes on Instagram about almost two weeks ago! So the only thing that we all knew was that it was coming with two liquid lip shades and a highlighter. The shades, price and release date were a mystery. Today around 1 PM or so Manny uploaded a video on his YouTube channel you can see right here.

Okay first things first. The entire bundle is a steal at $50. One of the really awesome things is that if you didn’t want all of the collab and wanted to buy things individually, on Jeffree’s site you can use the code, MANNYMUA and get 10% off!

Second, this beauty is being released on April 8th at 10 AM (PST) 0r 1 PM (EST). Here are some pictures of the highlighter and liquid lipsticks!

Here a preview of the highighter. The shade is called ‘Eclipse’. I’m so excited to add this to my collection. It was described as an icy peach shade. Excited.
The first liquid lip they showed was named, ‘Daddy’. It was described as a cool tone medium brown shade. It looks very 90s grunge and very complimenting on them both.
The other liquid lip is called, ‘I’m Shook’. Yass girl 😉 it was described as a burnt coral shade which is everything that my dreams are freakin’ made of. 🙂

To be honest, I couldn’t be more excited for this collab. The colors are so awesome and can be used for everyday wear. Remember… April 8th!
