Jeffree Star Cosmetics | Velour Liquid Lipstick Collection | Part Eight

Hi Beauties!

Welcome back to another blog post! Today’s post is part eight of my Jeffree star Cosmetics velour liquid lipstick collection series. As you may or may not know, Jeffree Star Cosmetics velour liquid lipsticks are by far some of my favourites. I love the comfortability of the formula, the colour range, and the fact that he is constantly releasing more and more shades. Due to the fact that I own almost every shade that he has brought out (minus a few early shades) I thought I would make a series looking at these products.

This month I am going to focus on some of the pinky nude shades in my collection. Let’s get into it!

A few weeks ago Jeffree Star Cosmetics released their newest ‘Alien’ collection which includes a new eyeshadow palette, velour liquid lipsticks, lip scrubs and makeup bags.

In true collector style I set my alarm for 5am so that I could grab everything I wanted from this collection. I will have a blog post going up soon which focuses on the Alien Eyeshadow palette, so make sure you are following so you don’t miss it! But for today, we are going to look at the newest 8 shades in the Velour Liquid Lipstick range!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow | Foiled and Duochrome Shadows

Hi Beauties!

Makeup Geek is such a popular brand in the beauty community. These were some of the first eyeshadows I ever purchased when I started taking makeup seriously, and I have loved adding more to my collection ever since. However, I haven’t touched my Makeup Geek eyeshadows in a while, so I thought I would do a blog post dedicated to them in order to rekindle my love and hopefully give me some inspiration to create more looks using the eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek was founded by the amazing Marlena Stell after fans of her YouTube channel basically demanded that she started her own line. So in 2009 she did just that! Makeup Geek started with a bunch of eyeshadows and blushes, but quickly expanded to include contouring, eyeliners, pigments, glitters, highlighters, brushes and much more!

Today we are going to focus on my own customised Makeup Geek palette! This palette is made up of some of their foiled shadows, with a couple of duo chrome shades thrown in.

Let’s get into some swatches!

IMG_0035
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Shades (top to bottom) – Starry Eyed; In The Spotlight; Legend; Flame Thrower; Mesmerized; Steampunk; Showtime

In The Spotlight – soft pink with coral undertones and a foiled finish

Legend – warm bronze with a foiled finish

Flame Thrower – true brightened warm copper with a foiled finish

Mesmerized – deep medium taupe with strong purple undertones and a foiled finish

Steampunk – deep blue base with rich cooper reflects, duochrome finish

Showtime – rusty brown with warm undertones and a foiled finish

IMG_0036
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Shades (top to bottom) – Charmed; Havoc; Ritzy; Take Two; Epic; Houdini; Curtain Call

Charmed – muted silvery light olive green with taupe undertones and a foiled finish

Havoc –  orangey-brown base with some teal reflect

Ritzy – warm red-brown base with green and gold reflects, duochrome finish

Take Two – olive green with a foiled finish

Epic – emerald green with a metallic foiled finish

Houdini – deep emerald teal green with a foiled finish

Curtain Call – cranberry red with a foiled finish

IMG_0037
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Shades (top to bottom) – Nostalgic; Whimsical; Daydreamer; Caitlin Rose; Plot Twist; Hype; Masquerade

Nostalgic – bubble gum pink with a metallic foiled finish

Whimsical – silvery pink with a foiled finish

Daydreamer – cool lavender/lilac with silver shimmer, foiled finish

Caitlin Rose – bright amethyst purple with a foiled finish

Plot Twist – medium periwinkle with a metallic foiled finish

Hype – amethyst purple with a metallic foiled finish

Masquerade – bright medium plum with warm undertones and a foiled finish

IMG_0038
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Shades (top to bottom) – Limelight; Pegasus; Sorcery

Limelight – lime green with a metallic foiled finish

Pegasus – light, bright aqua with a foiled finish

Sorcery – deep slate with a metallic foiled finish

As you can tell by the swatches, these eyeshadows are PIGMENTED. They seriously look like metal on the eyes when applied with a little bit of fix+. I love using these shadows all over the lid to elavate a makeup look to the next level!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow | My Ultimate Palette

Hi Beauties!

Today we are going to focus on my own customised Makeup Geek ‘holy grail’ palette! This palette is made up of some of their signature eyeshadows with a couple of foiled shadows thrown in.

What’s in my Makeup Bag | July 2018

Hi Beauties!

Alright Beauties, I need to admit to something. This is hard for me to admit to, I have really been in denial for a long time. But here it goes…

I own way too much makeup!

Okay, that was a little dramatic, but it is still true. I have been collecting makeup for many years now, and even though I do go through it every now and then and donate some of the products I don’t use, I also keep a lot in hopes that I will eventually use them one day. Because of this, I have decided that I want to start rotating items in and out of my ‘everyday’ makeup bag each month or so. I am hoping that this will get me to find some new favourites as well as rekindle the love I have for some of the older products I have in my collection.

Today’s blog post will not only give you a look inside my ‘everyday’ makeup bag but also a look into what I tend to take away with me when I don’t have loads of time to pack or space to put my makeup in. Just a small disclaimer, I don’t usually wear makeup on a day to day basis. If I am having an off day I might chuck on some concealer and mascara but that is usually it. However, I was away from home a bit this month and therefore wanted to make sure I had enough makeup to be able to apply a natural look or a more dramatic look, depending on where I was going.

Let’s get into my July makeup bag!

IMG_4248
Still One Step Correct Primer; Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops

Primer 

Stila One Step Correct – this helps to even out my skin tone and brighten my skin.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops – this is a beautiful face oil that leaves my skin looking so radiant and glowy.

IMG_4249
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation; Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer; Too Faced Born This Way Mini Concealer

Foundation & Concealer

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – my holy grail foundation! Simple as that.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – I love using this alone to hide the fact that I have a shocking sleep schedule, it is also my perfect pale skin colour.

Too Faced Born This Way Concealer Mini – I love carrying this with me when I travel because I can use it alone just to makeup myself seem more awake, or I can use it with a full face of makeup to give a nice highlighted effect to the face.

IMG_4250
Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow To Go Palette; Face of Australia Blush; Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder; Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer

Face Powders

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow To Go Palette –  who doesn’t love a handy little travel palette which contains an amazing highlight shade as well as a go-to contour shade. Added bonus that it takes up barely any room in my makeup bag!

Face of Australia Blush – I love this affordable blush, it blends super nicely on the skin and gives the perfect wash of colour.

Australis Fresh & Flawless Powder – this is one that will always be in my makeup bag, my all-time favourite setting powder!

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer – my favourite bronzer shade for both pale and fake tanned days.

IMG_4251
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara; Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz & Brow Powder Duo; Tarte Maneater Palette; Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara

Eyes and Brows

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – as you can see, I keep 2 mascaras in my makeup bag at all times. This one is used for a more thicker and defined looking lash for days where I decide to wear some kind of eyeshadow.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – this product helps me on my lazy days when I don’t want a super defined and bold brow look.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo – I love using this product when I am wearing more of a dramatic eye look, it still keeps my brows looking natural, but adds more depth and definition then a pencil would.

Tarte Maneater Palette – this is a small, yet sturdy eyeshadow palette that allows you to make a natural look or a more dramatic look depending on what you are going for.

Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara – I love this mascara for my more ‘everyday’ natural looks as it isn’t too thick on the lashes but it still adds length and definition.

IMG_4252
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Finishing It All Up

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – I love how this setting spray melts all the face products into one and makes everything sit nicely on the skin, as well as keeps everything put until you are ready to take it off.

You are probably wondering, Emma, where are the lip products? Well, I always carry a lip balm in my handbag. And as for lipstick, I will chuck in whatever lipstick colour I am feeling for the night, and let’s be honest, it is almost always a nude shade.

What products have you been loving this month? Leave me a comment and let me know! 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!
