Happy Valentine’s Day my pretties. Even though it was yesterday but if you’re in a different county it maybe today! But my darling partner came home on his work lunch break holding a beautiful red rose and a box of chocolates for me. He’s so sweet, I’ve eaten the chocolate already which is probably no surprise to anyone but I had one of those moments where I didn’t realise the box was empty and I reached in for more and my body was overcome with a feeling of sadness/regret/embarrassment/shock. Do you know the feeling?
Regardless I created a Valentine’s Day inspired makeup look! I’ll list down what products I used down below and link the site where I purchased them for you all! Let me know what you think in the comments! 💋
This post was a tricky one for me. Do I love this palette? I dunno. But I don’t hate it! Does that even makes sense? This is what happens when your up all night with a baby projectile vomiting everywhere. What’s sleep? Should I arrange an exorcism? I don’t know, I’m tired as fuck! But Hayley does not disappoint! I created a look using this adorable little palette for you all so keep reading if you want to read my thoughts and I promise I wont mention projectile vomiting again… Starting from now…
Does anyone elses family do Kris Kringle? I think that’s how its spelt or also known as ‘Secret Santa’? Well for anyone that doesn’t know, everyone puts there name in a hat and who evers name you get, you have to buy them a present and not let them know you have them. I got my sister in law and I got her,Velvet teddy mac lipstick. Aren’t I the best! BUT her boyfriend had me and I 100% know she helped him out with the present because he got me the ‘Too Faced Chocolate Chip Palette’! Hahaha does he know what Mecca is? Regardless. Thank you steven!
This palette is super cute! Its of course chocolate scented and while putting this on, my daughter legit came over and asked me if I was eating chocolate and if she could have some. Which isn’t an unusual question because I will quite frequently hide and eat chocolate but that just helps describe how good it smells!
They picked 11 shades out of the original ‘Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette’ and turned them into mattes to create this little guy! I love the colours in this and I love how it has more then one transition shade. I wasn’t quite sure about the cool toned shades in this as they are foreign to me but they are so pretty and can definitely see myself playing with them when I grow some balls!
They swatched so well and the pigment was definitely there! I was a bit disappointed in the shade, ‘Matte Gilded Ganache’ and ‘Triple Fudge’ as they weren’t as Khaki as they looked in the pan. For some reason while swatching these I liked my finger, maybe because I was hungry and sleep deprived but I shit you not they taste like chocolate!!! You could eat these but I wouldn’t suggest doing it hahaha!
I did a eyeshadow look so you can see how it is on the eyes!
I used the shade, ‘Matte Crème Brulee’ in the crease and blended the colour up just above the brow bone. I then dipped into the shade, ‘Matte Cherry Cordial’ and packed that into my inner and outer corner. I blended that in and dragged it up into my crease leaving the centre of my lid. I then packed the shade, ‘Strawberry Bon Bon’ onto my lid for a matte halo eye look! I then used the shade, ‘Semi-Sweet’ on my lower lash line!
The shades I used were a lot cooler toned then I anticipated and they were a bit tricky to blend out then I thought they would be! I had trouble getting the colours seem less just on the outer part where I blended them. I’m not sure if its because they were a bit chalkier of an eyeshadow then I’ve used in the past!
Overall I had a lot of fun creating this look! I love first impressions reviews! It may not have worked out this time round but I’m definitely going to give it another go in the future!

Happy New Year’s friends! What did everyone get up too?? I don’t really celebrate it like most. With two kids I tend to just stay home. Like last year I was watching the fire works on tv while my fiancé danced to Madonnas ‘Like a Virgin’ as he drank alone! It was pretty tragic but I’m literally a fun sponge. I don’t drink and when I do I have like two and lose interest. I’m an actual Nana but I’m just as dumb sober let alone drunk so I still fit in! I also think I may have over done it when I was younger as most alcohols smell like that one time I almost died. Remember the drink ‘Pulse’ which is now called ‘rhythm’ or something. Suppressed memories….
But today I bring you the ‘JEFFREE STAR HOLIDAY COLLECTION FIRST IMPRESSION’. Now I didn’t buy the whole holiday collection. I don’t see the point in buying things you know you will never use. Unless it’s free then hand me that blue fucking lipstick and lets go!
I purchased the ’24 KARAT HIGHTLIGHTER PALETTE’ and the liquid lipstick ‘CHRISTMAS COOKIE’! I was fully stalking every single one of ‘Princess Polly’s’ social media accounts to find out when this was released. I’d love to buy off the ‘Jeffree Star’ site but with overseas shipping and the added price I don’t mind waiting for an Australian release. And Princess Polly have afterpay lel. But today I’ll show you photos, swatches and it applied on my pin head for you all to see!
I actually have a brother in-law called ‘Christopher’ and every time I write ‘Christmas’ it autocorrects to his name and I actually sent a message saying ‘Merry Christopher’ the other day and it was hilarious and I didn’t even correct myself. But back to the subject. I purchased the gorgeous liquid lipstick shade in ‘Christmas Cookie’. First of all. As you can see, the packaging is fucking adorable. The glitter and baby pink are so beautiful. He did such a good job of designing this collection.
The shade is a stunning nude with a slight pinky undertone that I’m all for. I tend to have a lot of trouble finding the right nude shade as some can be a bit too light for my skin tone and wash me out a bit or match my skin so it looks like I literally have no lips which looks like a horror show! But I feel this shade would be perfect for any skin tone! Its so versatile! I love the applicator for Jeffree’s Liquid Lipsticks too as the little doe foot tip is perfect for applying product to the lips!
24 KARAT SKIN FROST PRO PALETTE
Now before purchasing this I knew very well that all of these shades would not suit my skin tone as highlighters but it was too stunning not to buy and I will be able to use them all as eye shadows as well! The package is so beautiful! I love the gold and how he still used pink for the writing on the front!
This highlighter palette is stunning! I love how different each shade is and can be used in so many different ways!
Each colour is so creamy in consistency and what I love about the formula of these highlighters are that they don’t have chunks of glitter through it and go on the face so smoothly!
In the picture above on my cheek bones I used ‘Sarcophagus’ which I am in love with! Its my new favourite highlighter!! Its not chunky at all and so pigmented. You’d definitely be able to build this up for an even more intense highlight. I’m not one to douse my bod in shimmer but if you are the Jeffree Star Hightlighter Palettes would be perfect for you! I will say the Platinum Skin Frost palette would be a lot more beneficial for you if you were just wanting it for highlighting if you had my skin tone.
So this concludes my first impression! I hope you enjoyed it and I’ve once again made you spend money on makeup so you’re broke like me! Haha! Who wants to see an eye look with the 24 Karat Palette?? Comment below if its something you’d like to see!
I’m so sad this year is almost over. My daughter starts school and my fiancé goes back to work. There is nothing I love more then having my family together, spending time with friends and laying in bed at night listening to my fiancé yell when he dies on Call of Duty. It’s the little things… but big and better things to come in 2018 and I’m excited to continue to write this blog for you all! Please don’t forget to hit that follow button and follow me on Instagram for updates! Love you all so much and I hope you all have a safe and happy new year!
