More Jeffree Star Cosmetics

As many of you may have seen that I did a blog post reviewing the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks. It was my first time ever trying them and I absolutely LOVE them. (Again, I am not a fan of his, I don't follow him on social media, nor keep up with anything he does). I am a huge fan of the velour liquid lipsticks that I decided to purchase 3 more when he was having a sale on December 28, 2017. In fact, I love them so much that I even set an alarm on my phone to be sure to purchase them on time. The liquid lipsticks are normally $18 a piece, but the sale allowed for a select few to be sold at 50%, which would then be $9 a piece. I ended up purchasing Rose Matter, Redrum, and Doll Parts.

Rose Matter is a coral shade of pink. When I first swatched it, I thought it was a pink color on its own, but swatching it next to Doll Parts, you can tell that it's more of a coral pink, than a true pink. I think this one goes well when I am wearing orange shades or anything with orange undertones. I actually tried to coordinate it with a pink outfit and in my opinion, it did not match well.

Redrum is a cool toned red. I have always been in the market for a good truly red color and I would say this is a great one. The wonderful thing to cool toned reds is that they do not make your teeth look yellow! I know sometimes (even with pearly white teeth) your teeth can look yellow if you are wearing red lipstick. The trick to that is to get a red lipstick that is cool toned, not warm toned. The warm toned color in the lipstick will want to draw out other warm colors (yellow & orange), while the cool toned color will want to draw out cooler colors (blue & green). This isn't saying your teeth are blue or green, but more so the neutral or cool tones of your teeth. Just trust me. It works. It's science. (haha!)

Doll Parts is a cool toned pink. The color reminds me a lot of Valentines Day. According to Jeffree's website, it's suppose to be a pink similar to the shade in Mean Girls and I would have to agree. The pink is such a soft color that it's not overpowering nor super light that you can't tell it's on you. I would pair this with a 'Mean Girls' pink outfit as well. I would recommend the true pink colors, rather than the pinks with purple or red undertones.

Overall, I am still a very happy customer. These velour liquid lipsticks are super amazing and I still highly recommend them to everyone. They stay on all day and look absolutely great. There's no cakey look when you wear them and they don't come off easily. 5 out of 5 stars!

Ahh the month of love. I've always loved Valentine's Day because it brought so many people closer together. Going through elementary school, everyone would give each classmate a card with maybe a lollipop and you would be overfilled with joy when you got your little mailbox full of Valentines. I remember my biggest joy was not seeing what the candy was, but rather who got me a valentine and what kind it was. It made me feel special, as if somebody cared for me. As we got older, instead of each person getting a card, they were only given to friends. I remember seeing so many flowers, stuffed animals, candy, and cards going around but not much for me.

This is my first year that I had a Valentine and to be honest, it felt like any other day- Yes, we did go to Cheesecake Factory and enjoy a very nice meal together (I got a delicious bowl of white chicken chili and he got a yummy fresh grilled salmon!! It was SO good). And yes, he did buy me flowers, a stuffed animal, a heart-eyed emoji balloon, and lots & lots of chocolates, but I've realized that I get treated like this every time I'm with him. He always spoils me by going out of his way to buy me chocolates that I love, or going to the restaurant I've been dying to go to - even though it's Olive Garden about 270 times. (Seriously- I could LIVE at Olive Garden) He even is okay with going to a place that I want to go, even if he is not really wanting to go.

Why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake? You know I love to go there...

I guess my point is, when you are with the right person, every day is Valentine's Day. It might not make sense but if you have experienced love - true, unconditional love - you will be able to relate to me. For those of you that have not gotten there, I promise you, you will. Every song on the radio, every time you think of something they like, or every time their name lights up in your phone, you will know what I'm talking about. Until you find your soulmate, enjoy you. I was single a long time before he came along and swept me off my feet. Well, I can say that the wait was definitely worth it.

Flowers, Chocolates, Stuffed Animal, and LOVE :)

Alright. Alright. Enough with the mushy love stuff. I'm sorry for not being able to post. I recently got a new job, as I mentioned in my previous post, and I have not gotten time to post more blogs. I will continue to try, as I do love blogging and sharing my thoughts. Look out for the next post.
