Typically when I do a 3 looks 1 palette, but today I’m just going to be using a single collection for each of these looks. Now I don’t have the blush or highlighter from this collection so I will be using other products for those two areas. But the rest I do have including ColourPop x Zoella Creme Gel Liner, Brunch Date Palette, Ultra Matte Lips, and Supernova shadows.
One collection that ColourPop released that I initially was going to do a hard pass on was the Zoella Brunch Date collection. One, I’m just not a massive Zoella fan anymore after all the scandals and just grew out of her channel on YouTube. And two, it just isn’t that exciting. But as you can guess by the title, I ended up getting a good chunk of the collection. The only things from the collection I skipped on were the lip liners, blush, and highlighter as I don’t use lip liners and don’t need any more of the other two items.
I don’t typically do book reviews, I leave that to the book bloggers. But this one I just had to share my thoughts on. I used to watch PointlessBlog and Zoella’s videos on YouTube all of the time until this year. When Alfie Deyes posted a video about going an entire day without spending a pound but ended up getting tons of free things, complaining about not being able to have filtered water, and doing shopping anyways. It kind of pissed me off. And I stopped watching both of their videos as they just didn’t seem to be in the real world anymore so it just wasn’t something I wanted to spend my time on anymore. Before that all happened Zoe Sugg announced she was going to be releasing a book called Cordially Invited, and I pre-ordered a copy as it sounded like something I wanted to read about. That being how to host a party, something I wanted to getting good at especially since I’m starting to get out of the college/broke time in my life (I think, fingers crossed) and I wanted to get some tips on how to host adult parties. Something I see Zoe throw a lot and they always look incredible and Instagram worthy. So I wanted to learn how to do something similar myself.
This is the first time I’ve ordered the entire collection for Zoella Beauty, and that was mainly because of the fact I was ordering beauty products from the UK. Not everything can be shipped, but now it’s available online at Ulta so I got everything… well almost everything. I didn’t get the makeup bag only because I have so many from Ipsy. Other than that this is literally every product in the Jelly & Gelato collection!
One of my biggest fashion/style inspirations at the moment would have to be Zoella or Zoë Sugg as she has such a retro or airy feel to her style. Which is perfect for any time of the year. So for this Fashion Friday, I’m going to go into some of my favorite outfits that Zoella has worn that inspire my everyday wardrobe.
