I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a Jeffree Star collection than I was for this year’s summer collection.
My jaw literally dropped when I first saw the Jawbreaker palette. Have you ever seen anything this beautiful! I’ve only played with this palette once so far, but I’m already obsessed.
I’ve also purchased the Mini Breaker palette. I love the concept of mini palettes, and the colours in this one are stunning.
I’ve never tried the Supreme Frost highlighters before, but when I saw the shade Diamond Wet swatched, I knew I had to give it a try.
Last, but most certainly not least, I purchased four of the limited edition Velour liquid lipsticks. The shades are (from top to bottom) Fully Nude, Strawberry Crush, Yes Ma’am, and Purple Urkle. The colours are brighter in real life and oh so pretty.
When Beautybay had a sale recently, I obviously had to get a ‘few’ things. I got two more Velour liquid lipsticks from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Holiday 2018 collection. I picked up the shades Jeffree Who? and Can’t Relate, and I love both shades. I also picked up three more of the Velour lip liners; the shades are Allegedly, Androgyny, and Dominatrix. Then I picked up a couple of eye shadow palettes; I got another Wet n Wild palette which is a neutral palette called Nude Awakening, and then I had to get the Sola Look Flashdance palette. I mean, how cute is that packaging! From Wet n Wild I also picked up the Photofocus pressed powder in Warm Light, and I added two more Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows (Wanderlust + Enchantress) to my collection. Last but not least, I got the Ofra highlighter in the shade Glazed Donut (made in collaboration with NikkieTutorials), and it is blinding!
In my most recent 5 favourites post, I mentioned that I went to see the new Aladdin live action film, and I loved it. MAC has come out with a limited edition Aladdin collection, and of course I had to get my hands on a few of products.
I purchased two lipsticks; Rajah and Princess Incognito. I haven’t worn Rajah yet, but Princess Incognito is a stunning rosy nude shade. And look at that packaging. So pretty!
I also bought the Always One Jump Ahead highligter which is a beautiful gold shade. I don’t wear gold highlighters very often, but this one is really pretty and not too dark on my fair skin.
The last official month of spring is over by tomorrow, and summer is officially here (hopefully the summer weather will arrive as well). It feels like May went by so fast, and I really can’t believe that it’s already June; a busy month for many teachers out there (myself included). But let’s not talk about that now. Let’s talk about some of my favourite things from the month of May.
Navy quilted jacket: I’d been on the hunt for a great spring jacket, and I definitely found it in this one from Monki. I’ve worn it almost everyday throughout May, and as long as the weather is not getting much warmer, I’ll continue to wear it.
Zebra print jeans: I’ve been absolutely loving these zebra print jeans from Asos. They’re the perfect pair of statement trousers, and I’ve worn both at work and on a night out.
MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow): This product has actually been a favourite since December, when I started using a sample size of it. I loved it so much that I had to buy the full size (even though it’s quite expensive), and I wear it most days mixed with my Wet n Wild Coverall primer. It just gives the skin such a pretty, natural glow.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blue Blood palette: This one probably doesn’t come as a surprise. I’ve been obsessed with blue eyeshadow these past couple of months, and this palette is all you need to create beautiful blue eyeshadow looks.
Aladdin (film): As the huge Disney fan that I am, I was very excited to watch the live action version of Aladdin. There might have been some controversy regarding this film, but I loved it! The colours and scenery was stunning, the actors were great, and the music was beautiful.
It’s been a while since my last H&M haul, so I thought it was time to do another one.
I know I already own several Friends T-shirts, but in my opinion you can never have too many T-shirts with prints related to your favourite TV series.
As you might have noticed, I’m obsessed with everything Disney, and I thought this Donald Duck T-shirt was so cute. I love that it’s brown too.
But I love cartoons in general, and H&M has made several pieces with Garfield print (I’ve got more pieces coming up). This T-shirt is the same shape as the Donald Duck one, and I love the baby pink colour.
I thought these long oversized T-shirt dresses were very interesting. I got one with Donald Duck and one with Garfield (I’m sticking to the cartoon theme). I think they’ll look really cute over jeans, or maybe paired with cycling shorts in the summer.
The last Garfield piece I’ve got is this pair of jeans. They fit so well, and I can’t wait to style them.
I’d had this snake print skirt in my basket for a long time, and I finally decided to get it.
Lastly, I purchased this white belt with the prettiest pearl buckle. I’ve already worn it several times (I’m wearing it here).
I’ve collected some new make-up over the past month (maybe a bit longer), and I thought I would share with you, what I’ve got. I’ve purchased six new liquid lipsticks (like I need any more lipsticks); the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour liquid lipstick is in the shade Allegedly, the Dose of Colors Minnie Mouse matte liquid lipstick in the shade Irreplaceable was to cute to pass on, and then I found some Essence Vibrant Shock (06 Black Widow) and Metal Shock (01 Belladonna + 02 Hemlock + 06 Poison Ivy) lip paints on sale that I thought I would give a try. I’ve also bought a new universal transparent lipliner; this one is the Max Factor Color Elixir lipliner in the shade Universal 000. When I wanted to buy a back-up of my Wet n Wild Coverall primer, I couldn’t find it where I usually buy. Instead I found the Wet n Wild Photofocus matte face primer, and I’m going to see if it’s similar to the Coverall primer.
I finally decided to try out Essence Must Haves single eyeshadows (they were also on sale), and I bought a four pan palette to pop them in. The shades I’ve got are (from left to right) 09 Chilli Vanilli, 23 Mermaid At Heart, 22 Holo-Holic, and 14 Purple Clouds.
Lastly, I purchased this beautiful irridecent powder from the MAC Electric Wonder collection. It’s in the shade Serenity Seeker, and it’s a mix of peach and gold. And look at the stunning packaging!
