Jeffree Star recently released his second eyeshadow palette, the Androgyny Palette! It includes 10 shades, and is vegan and cruelty free. Of course, being the eyeshadow addict I am, I swiped this up as soon as it launched so I could test out the formula and … Continue reading Jeffree Star Cosmetics ANDROGYNY Palette Review and Swatches
On my most recent Sephora visit I decided to pick up one of the new-ish Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Oil Glosses in Papa Don’t Peach.
This gloss retails for $19usd / $24cdn and contains 0.14oz of product.
“Pucker up with our silky, smooth, peach oil infused lip gloss that smells and tastes like fresh picked peaches.”
The packaging itself is very sleek and I personally find it very visually pleasing. The individual glosses themselves are colour matched to the lid making it easy to figure out what shade you’re using, as well as the clear plastic tubing showing off the product itself.
This gloss as a very obvious peach smell to it, reminiscent of peach candy. It is a rather strong scent so if you’re very sentisive these glosses may not be for you. The peach smell lasts for about an hour once applied on the lips, then slowly dissipates over time. By about the two hour mark there is no scent left over.
The formula of these glosses is very true to name. These glosses are Oil based, so they are very hydrating and aren’t sticky at all. They remind me of the Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lips in the sense that they don’t stick when you press your lips together and they’re very long wearing, but I have to say this Too Faced gloss is more hydrating to my lips overall.
“Includes: Lip-loving PEACH OIL, COCONUT OIL and VITAMIN E to soften and moisturize lips.”
The gloss itself isn’t overly pigmented or overly sheer, it’s a perfect medium coverage, and the shade itself is a gorgeous brown toned peachy nude.
For glosses I’m normally not one to care about longevity because I don’t mind reapplying, but surprising these glosses last a long time. For me, without drinking or eating this particular shade will last up to four hours on me before needing touch up. If I press my lips together a lot or eat and drink I’ll need to touch up sooner, by about the 2-3 hour mark. Again, I’m not overly bothered by this.
I think if you can pick up one or two glosses from this range, you should do it. They aren’t cheap, but in my opinion the formula is worth the price point. Would I pick up them all? Personally I wouldn’t simply because I don’t like all of the shades, I would however pick up the darker shades and I do hope they further this line in the future to feature more shade selection.

Juvia’s Place has released the Saharan Palette which retails for $28usd. You can use a discount code and get roughly 10% off which brings the total down to around $25usd.
Now for some background on the palette itself; The inspiration for this palette comes from African culture, as does all of the other palettes in the line. This palette was specifically inspired by the Wodaabe festivities of the Fulani culture.
This palette contains the same amount of product as the original Nubian palette (18g/ .63oz) with the Saharan palette being slightly larger with the pans more spread out. (Personally I love the way the shadows are laid out within the palette.)
Every shade in this palette is extremely pigmented, including the black matte shade called Chad which swatched terribly but in application applied beautifully.
Personally I didn’t find the mattes to be chalky or have incredible amounts of fallout, same goes for the metallics and Satin shades, all of which performed perfectly when applied to the eye and lid area.
My personal favorite shades from this palette are Wodaabe, Bororo and Fula. (Of course these are all metallic shades) These shades for me are the ones I can see myself gravitating towards.
This is the makeup look I did using the Saharan palette. The shades I used were Fula, Sokoto, Jamila, Katsina, Iman, Bororo and Zoya. These shadows applied extremely pigmented and had little to no fallout. They blended effortlessly together without becoming muddy, and as you can see all of these shades worked beautifully together to create this pink/burgundy toned eye look.
All in all I would recommend this palette if you enjoy these types of shades. The formula is one of the best on the market, with all shades being very buttery and highly pigmented.

Hey everyone! Today I decided to tell you my favorite lipstick shades from each brand I own. Trust me when I say it was not an easy task, but I did it!
* Bite Beauty ~ Pepper
* Jeffree Star Cosmetics ~ Celebrity Skin
* Kat Von D ~ Magick
* Buxom Cosmetics ~ Rosè
* Urban Decay ~ Backtalk
* Bite Beauty ~ Mauvember (LE)
The reason I chose these as my favorite tube lipsticks of all time, is because each has an amazing formula, and colour pay off! I typically don’t wear lipstick on the daily, but when I grab for a tube lipstick these are the ones I gravitate towards.

Today my friend Marie passed on her Mini of Kylie Cosmetics Love Bite Liquid Lipstick and I thought I’d do a review for you guys!
First off, the colour is amazing! It’s this dark, purple, brown shade and honestly is a super sexy, sultry shade in my books. It doesn’t apply patchy, and for a dark shade like this I was surprised at how easy I was able to line my lips with the applicator.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of the formula. It dries very quick, and you only need a layer for it to be fully opaque. I’m normally not one for Matte liquid lipsticks, but I may be hooked!
