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?…

ColourPop Summer “The Main Stage” Pressed Individual Shadows Set Review & Tutorial

It's probably no surprise if you've been following my blog for a while that I'm a massive fan of the ColourPop eyeshadows especially their individual shadows.

ColourPop Fall Eyeshadows & Ultra Satin Lips

ColourPop Fall Eyeshadows & Ultra Satin Lips

One of my favorite brands is ColourPop, they're products are typically really good quality and are drugstore prices. So I love trying almost everything they come out with that I know I will use. So when I saw they came out with their fall collection that was made up of ultra satin lips, pressed powder shadows, super shock shadows, and blushes. I don't really reach for super shock shadows that I got as I don't really love cream eye products and I hardly wear blush. So I skipped these items from the fall collection by ColourPop.…

ColourPop Summer Single Pressed Eyeshadows Review

ColourPop Summer Single Pressed Eyeshadows Review

I first got ColourPop Pressed eyeshadows a few months ago when I was trying to finish filling up my Z palette of single eyeshadows. And I fell in love with them, so when they released their summer shades I got all of the 12 pressed eyeshadows. Each shadow is $5, but when I purchaed them they were on sale for $4 and for every 5 purchased you got a empty palette. Which I used to hold some other single blushes I had from Tarte. And got myself a large empty palette to hold all of the pressed eyeshadows from ColourPop so I could get more in the future and house them there as well.…

ColourPop Pressed Eyeshadow Haul

ColourPop Pressed Eyeshadow Haul

I haven't done a haul in a long time and since I am beginning the 100 Days of Makeup on Instagram, I thought it would be a brilliant idea to get some of ColourPop's pressed eyeshadows so I would have a variety of colors to play with. In addition to the NYX Hot Single Eyeshadows that I already have. So I got myself just enough to fill in the rest of my double-sided Z palette that I store my NYX shadows inside of after I depotted those.…
