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 swatched these for you all! I did an arm swatch and then on the lip! Enjoy!
Either way, grab these. They’re a great consistency, great shades and an overall pretty collaboration. Great work, guys ❤❤
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.
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.
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!
For the swatches, I did the face shades first and then three eyeshadows at a time by row.
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!
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!
And here’s the finger swatches of this!
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.
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!
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!
