The History of Lipstick

The History of Lipstick

One of my favorite products of all time is lipstick, specifically liquid lipstick. I find it fascinating to see how far various cosmetics products have gone over the course of the years. Five years ago I would never think lipstick would come in anything other than a cream. If it was in a bottle and liquid, it was a gloss not lipstick. And now I can’t imagine not having a dry matte lipstick that lasts all day without any touch-ups. So I thought I would do a little series here on the blog about the history of cosmetics products. Today in particular will be all about lipsticks.

Trying Not to Let a Haircut Kill My Confidence

Trying Not to Let a Haircut Kill My Confidence

Over Thanksgiving break I decided to get my haircut, and I wasn’t planning on doing anything major. The plan was like one or two inches to keep the lob (long bob) and layers to take weight off and let my natural waves come back through. Well… that didn’t happen. My typical hair dresser showed up twenty minutes late and didn’t listen to a word I said. Suddenly seven inches were gone and the back was maybe an inch in length. On top of that she put a ton of gel or something in my hair to make it look wet, and she took rat’s nest to a new level. I never wanted to be one of those girls who cry in the chair after a haircut so I held back the tears and tried not to say anything. As the worst was already done and you can’t put back on the hair you lost.

I’m Broke and Hungry, So Today We’re Eating Loaded Nachos

Haven’t posted in a week, because it was getting a little sad in our fridge. To the point where I was basically eating only popcorn or ice cream. And though payday happened, we weren’t able to restock the fridge that much. We managed to get a few things including a pound of meat and since I got to stretch that out few days I made some taco meat since I can make it last. And use it in several different ways. So for today’s post is one of the ways I used that meat which is loaded nachos or modified tacos since I don’t have any tortillas. And it was completely non-stressful to cook.

Is Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette Worth the Hype?

Is Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette Worth the Hype?

Alright final post of the week on the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette. If you missed it I also did a 3-Looks-1-Palette, Compared the Difference Between Eyeshadow and Pressed Pigments, and Every Swatch Imaginable of the palette in my previous posts from this week. So to wrap this Blood Sugar week up, we’re going to dig into the pros and cons of the palette to determine if it is truly worth it. Along with all the hype since this palette is selling out every time it gets restocked and many have called it “Palette of the Year.”

Swatches of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette

Swatches of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I’m spending the entire week minus Wednesday on the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Pressed Pigment palette. I’ve never done an entire post dedicated to just swatches so I’m doing every type of swatch you can image in this post: brush, eye, finger, and perfect. The perfect one is more just for the display photos for this post, but we’re going to get into every shade and stain my lids to new levels from Red#40 that’s in a bunch of the shadows. I tried to limit the number of swatches I did on my lids every day so they weren’t too bad, but I kind of liked doing this type of post though I know I’m not going to be a whole lot of this in the future as my lids were not happy with all of the eye swatches though they show off the shadows the best. Also before we get into the swatches, I did not clean off any fall out in the eye swatches so you can really see what happened when applying the shadows using an e.l.f. fluffy brush.

Difference Between Pressed Pigment and Eyeshadow

Difference Between Pressed Pigment and Eyeshadow

This is a topic that has been discussed a lot recently with the release of the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette… which I do have and just haven’t gotten around to playing with. Since it contains some shadows that are pressed pigments and a user on Twitter ranted for two minutes about getting hives and stained skin due to one of the pink shades in the palette. As I have not played with that palette, I cannot speak to the formula. However, I have been playing with the Jeffree Star Blood Sugar palette, which also includes pressed pigments and has a vegan formula. Plus I’ve been researching this topic as I wanted to attempt making a palette myself from scratch. So what are the main differences between eyeshadows and pressed pigments?
