SugarPill Cosmetics “High Tea” Liquid Lip Bundle

HighTea_bundle_grande   I bought the Little Twin Star Collection but didn’t really review it here mainly because I used the entire collection in my last photoshoot and have been tweeting with the fabulous people at Sugarpill on how much I loved that collection. Yesterday I received my Sugarpill “High Tea,” Liquid Lipstick collection and I’m already in love. Every color is something that I would wear on a daily basis and of course the liquid lip formula is fantastic. Sugarpill and Jeffree Star Cosmetics are my two favorite brands that have the best liquid lip formulas.

Here is my NEW YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOUT MY LOVE FOR SUGARPILL COSMETICS! Also are the beautiful swatches and names of the gorgeous “High Tea” colors. I’m wearing “CLINK” in my pictures here! Thank you Sugarpill Cosmetics for another fabulous product and for being my favorite makeup brand.

Here’s a BIG TIP AND TRICK to BOUNCE BACK YOUR SKIN

images

You all know I try ON A LOT OF BEAUTY PRODUCTS and doing MANY BEAUTY REVIEWS. Anyone who wears or tries a lot of skincare and makeup products that they have never tried before and don’t know how they’ll react to your other products and skin need to remember that not all products you try will react perfectly with you skin.

If you notice your skin getting dry, dull, noticing new acne popping up, etc., IMMEDIATELY STOP USING YOUR NEW PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE USING A BUNCH OF PRODUCTS AT ONCE. ESPECIALLY ONES THAT YOU’VE NEVER HEARD ABOUT BEFORE AND/OR JUST STARTED USING.

After you stop using the beauty products that are affecting your skin in a negative way, go back to your normal skincare routine. This will definitely balance and bounce your skin back extremely fast right after you stop testing your beauty products.

******ALSO YOU MUST ALWAYS STAY HYDRATED! DRINK WATER AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. I’M NOT SAYING OVERLOAD YOUR KIDNEYS BUT WATER IS THE FASTEST WAY TO GET YOUR SKIN LOOKING BACK TO NORMAL AND HEALTHY.

HOPE THIS BIG TIP AND TRICK HELPS YOU ALL! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS, LIVE THEM BELOW!  THANK YOU FOR READING AND FOLLOWING MY PAGE HERE!! LOTS OF LOVE!

Makeup for the Spa

I love wearing makeup and being creative but whenever I get a spa treatment done, I’m obviously not going to do a full face of makeup. Especially if I go to get a facial (duh) and when you I get massage, even if I’m wearing eyeliner, my makeup still sometimes get smeared or giving me a “heroin chic” look.

Here’s how I do my face up after my skincare to get spa treatments, depending on what treatment I get of course, facial, massage. Also my spa necessities I bring with me.

For makeup if I’m getting my massages, my go to is Bare Minerals matte loose powder foundation and loose original mineral veil loose powder. If I’m skin is acting acting up, I’ll bring my MAC studio fix powder foundation compact just curl lashes, put clear brow gel on my brows, and a lip treatment.

For a facial I just bring a toner that will soothe my skin like Fresh Rose Water Toner. I’ll also bring my MAC powder foundation to use ONLY if I’m feeling self conscious.

The most important thing is for me to have my sunglasses. Especially coming out of a soft lit spot and then going into the bright light. Always bring them with you.

Here’s some spa beauty tips for ideas if you’re feeling self conscious and can’t go into these spas without anxiety. Thank you for reading.

Tips and Tricks on How To Stop Your Foundation from Oxidizing

Because I wrote that short but harsh recent article,“Major Beauty Misses!” 

    I decided to do a tips and tricks post on how to keep you foundation from oxidation. I already provided two previous tips in my “Major Beauty Misses” article, don’t buy those two products.

5b

1. USE A PRIMER– This should be a no brainer because almost everyone uses primers now a days.

A primer will create a barrier between your skin and the foundation, which should help prevent it from reacting with your natural oils which stops oxidation. 

If you have combination skin, consider using an oil-controlling primer on your T-zone and a hydrating primer on the rest of your face.

Speaking of Primers,  here are some good things to remember when buying and using primers depending on what you skin you have:

A Mattifying Primer would be great for your T-zone, with a Nourishing Primer on dry areas on you face. 

2. Blot your SkinAfter you apply your primer, take a half-ply of clean tissue and use it to blot your face. Do this again after applying your foundation—it will remove any excess oils and moisture to help the foundation colour to stay true.

3. Go Oil-Free- You will most likely have luck switching to an oil-free formula foundation, as fewer oils might mean less chance of an oxidative reaction on your skin.

4. Balancing Your ph Level- Depending on your skin care routine, the products you may use, exfoliators, moisturizers, or depending on your skin type if it’s dry, or oily, your ph level may be off. 

HERE’S A GREAT TIP ON HOW TO RE- BALANCE YOUR PH LEVEL:

An idea for your skincare routine is apple cider vinegar as a toner. Since oxidation can be triggered by skin with an acidic pH level, you could try balancing it with the ACV.  According to Dr. Karen Hammerman, a New York dermatologist, “Skin is naturally acidic but when vinegar is used as a toner, it helps skin find the ideal balance between dry and oily.) Make sure to dilute it, though—say, one part vinegar to two parts water—and apply with a cotton pad.

HOPE THESE TIPS AND TRICKS WORK ON HELPING YOUR SKIN AND TO KEEP YOUR FOUNDATION FROM OXIDIZING.

Blood Sugar Palette from the LOVE SICK COLLECTION

Whenever Jeffree Star puts out a new collection, I always get excited and the collections are always fabulous. When he revealed his latest makeup collection,
“Love Sick Collection,” I absolutely lost it with my ecstatic excitement. The whole collection is in my favorite color which immediately caught my eye and then I saw the new ” Blood Sugar” eyeshadow palete with other products on his reveal video and instantly couldn’t wait for the launch date.

   **At the very bottom of this article, I included Jeffree’s reveal of the LOVE SICK COLLECTION including this palette plus other products from this collection, such as other lipscrubs, lipsticks, and more.

When he launched “Love Sick”, I pre-ordered the “Blood Sugar” palette and bought a few other goodies from the collection such the sexy new red cosmetic case that can hold a full sized palette which is very cool. I also bought the new “Candy Necklace” velour lip scrub which is so yummy and a great addition to my lip scrub collection.

I received my “Blood Sugar” palette last week and I’m so in love with it. The packaging is the absolute best. It’s a one of a kind red faux leather box with metal clasps. It comes with 18 gorgeous shades, in 3 formulas, metal, matte, and pressed glitter. The names of the pigmented shades are so cute and very appropriate for this palette. The details of this palette is so cute with the stamps of some of the shadows such as medical needle and a medical symbol, which I included a closeup picture here.

The best thing about this palette is that I can create so many looks and styles with just this palette from traditional, vintage, pinup makeup, to sexy smoldering, psychobilly, natural, and more. I’m an artist and I always love being creative and like to create art in the makeup genre. Makeup is definitely an art form.

    I wanted to write this article to give and share my first impressions and review on this makeup collection and I definitely plan on posting pictures of me with different makeup looks using just it in the future.

 The “Love Sick” collection is yet again another fantastic collection of makeup and products from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Everything Jeffree puts out I love but this collection is my favorite from him and out of all the eyeshadow palettes he’s put out, the BLOOD SUGAR PALETTE IS my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PALETTE!

It’s obvious that I recommend this  collection especially the eye shadow palette. The palette sells quickly but you can still pre-order at jeffreestarcosmetics.com and at beautylish.com.
