GRWM| Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne Eyeshadow Palettes

Let me tell you a funny story about the other day.

The other night I had a bad dream that involved my boyfriend. A very upsetting dream. And naturally, because my boyfriend was asleep, I couldn't express my frustrations about him in my dream to him. He wasn't awake to reassure me it was all a dream and I was just being loca. Because let's be real, it really was just a dream and I really was being loca. But alas, he was still sleeping so I went back to bed angry we couldn't talk things over. Big no no, but I was TIRED.

Can anyone else relate?

Naturally, I woke up that morning and explained my bad dream which he laughed at me for and did what any boyfriend would do, he told me it was just a dream and I was crazy. I knew he was right but sleepy grumpy Rosie still held a little grudge towards him. IT IS THE GEMINI IN ME, OKAY?!? It took me about an hour or so to get over it and he and I both went about our days at work. I went home to edit and wait for him to come home for the night.

He came home and apologized for Dream Jessy and gifted me a surprise on behalf of  "D.J" for upsetting me. It was two palettes. The two latest palettes from Urban Decay and Kristen Leanne! I almost cried tears of happiness because I was legitimately shocked by the kind gift and because I really wanted the Kaleidoscope Dream Palette.

A little more backstory to why he decided on those two palettes!

As most (some?) of you know, one of the latest trends on YouTube is "I Followed ______ Makeup Tutorial." Jessy, being the overachiever, decided he wanted to follow his own makeup tutorial. So he decided to follow Kristen Leanne husband Ryan Morgan's tutorial. This happened to be with the same palettes he bought me. So we both had the chance to enjoy them.

Want to see his video? Click here.

Moving on. I was so excited to use these palettes I recorded a video and came up with this look which you also saw in my previous post. (Read here)


I love colorful looks so much! This one was no exception. Of course I have to ask. Would you rock it? Honestly it reminded me of Beetlejuice and I wouldn't change a thing. Watch the full video on the look below.



Don't have 10 minutes to watch? Here's a mini breakdown until you do.

New New| Palettes and Looks

As usual, it has been about a year (not really) since I've posted a blog. I keep saying I am going to be more consistent, but that never happens so I will just disclose now that I will try my HARDEST to post more, but no promises.

So most recently I bought/gifted a few palettes that I am dying to create looks for. Four new palettes to be exact. I thought it would be a good start to share what I am working on currently.



Since this is my FIRST Lime Crime Palette, I will admit that I am intimidated af. It's so pretty! I have had my eyes on the others for awhile now, but when this one came out I felt it was a sign to just go for it. I plan on recording tomorrow (Sunday 3/4). That means the video will probably not go up for about a week.

As for the other palettes, I've created looks for the Kristen Leanne X Urban Decay.



AND the Jeffree Star Blood Sugar palette

I have full intentions to do separate posts on both palettes, btw! In fact, that might be what I post tomorrow or Monday. Again, TRYING to be more consistent. No promises.

But my questions currently is, have you tried any of these palettes? Send me looks for inspo!

Project Pan 2018 | Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer

Welcome to my first blog post of 2018. I've been slacking! Okay, not really, but yes. I've had so much going on. First two weeks of January I spent sick. And now I am dealing with personal family issues. Bless your soul if you are reading this and have sent condolences. You are a gem. ♥

So this year, while being an uphill battle, I decided to take on Project Pan. Project Pan dates back to..... lord knows when.... I honestly couldn't even find that well of a backstory. I found posts as old as 2011 on Beautylish and I am pretty sure it dates back further. Basically, there is a community (panning community?) that takes on the challenge of hitting pan on their makeup. Some do all face items such as blush, highlights, contours, and of course, eyeshadow palettes. The point is to finish all of a product before buying your next. As a blogger, I can't necessarily STOP buying makeup. Heck, I get new makeup sent weekly. So my challenge is FINISHING some of my makeup.

I decided to start a Project Pan 10. Some would define Pan 10 as 10 different project items such as the ones mentioned above, but I instead chose a palette with 10 pans. As you know by the title, the palette I chose was the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer palette. When I first decided to do this challenge, I immediately wanted to use this palette, BUT since I have an amazing family of Instagram followers and subscribers, I wanted to give them the choice. I posted a poll to my Instagram with the options of Beauty Killer and Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance. I know how extremely popular Modern Renaissance is and since I would be sharing more looks and videos with whichever palette won, I knew the MR would be a good choice.

The battle of the palettes began. Below, a photo for reference.
As some (most?) of you know, Instagram polls run for 24 hours. It became apparent that Beauty Killer would stay head of the race. It stayed pretty close, but I decided to jump the gun anyway. I had already promised my IG followers more wearable looks with the Beauty Killer palette so I decided f it. If Modern Renaissance pulled ahead, at least I would have a wearable look tut for everyone, right?

I went with my go to basic look using the Beauty Killer palette.

I was so dang impressed with how far along I had come with this particular look. It's one I've done many many times before, but I was really in my zone with this one. Full face below.


In case you're wondering, 'Rosie, how do I get this look?!?" I gotchu. Watch my full video and introduction to MY Project Pan 2018. 

                         
I think it's possible to hit pan on this palette. It's such an amazing challenge in two ways for me, one to hit pan, and two to help my followers find basic fun looks! So that's it. Have you ever done project pan? WOULD you ever start a project pan? Let me know!

And of course, if you don't have time to watch the full video, here's a quick one minute break down.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics| Holiday 2017 Glitter Collection Swatches, Compar...

It is finally here!! For those of you not following me on Instagram or subscribed to my channel (you should be!), I thought I would do my usual blog recap. All posts can be found on Instagram as well. Don't forget to double tap!

On November 18th, the 2017 Jeffree Star Cosmetics Holiday Glitter collection was released. Again, I was fortunate enough to be sent it as PR for review purposes. As a fan of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics brand since day one, I cannot express to you how thankful I am for my followers and subscribers for making this goal possible for me after almost three years of putting my heart into reviews and posts.

So let's get right into it!

This collection has to be, by far, the most gorgeous packaging they've ever released. It was a pink frosted glitter packaging that would bring glitter lovers like me to tears.The collection featured 4 Lip Ammunition (sold for $18), 8 Velour Liquid Lipsticks (sold for $18), 3 Lip Scrubs (sold for $12), and the newest Skin Frost Pro palettes (sold for $40).




Are you in love yet? Okay well let me share some swatches.


I was in such a hurry to swatch and review this collection, the day I received it I could hardly focus on work. As soon as I clocked out I rushed home and started getting ready to record! Shoutout to Jessy for supplying the caffeine (he knew I'd need it). I got to recording by 9 pm and didn't finish with it and it's editing until after 3 am. But boy was it worth it. Check out my one minute recap of the shades below. And puhleeeeeeze don't be cruel. I've had my fair share of complaints about my smile to take care of all of 2016 and 2017 since starting my blogging in one repost! All my love to Jeffree Star Cosmetics for sharing my video! It brought me so many amazing new followers and subscribers that have me feeling BLESSED. ♥




I honestly could not pick a favorite! I've worn Human nature the most so far and was able to pair Mermaid Blood with Alien Ice from the Platinum Ice palette. Honestly, the combo was to die for! That is of course, if you're into bold looks!


As a San Jose Sharks fan, I can not stress how much in need of a teal lipstick I was! I have a shade from Melt Cosmetics that is a lovely tealISH shade, but it wasn't liquid lipstick. And I LOVE liquid lipstick.

Now let me share some of the Skin Frost Pro palettes. These came in two versions. One was a warm toned set called 24K and the other was very cool, duotone shade palette called Platinum Ice. Some would say it's a dupe for Anastasia's Moonchild, but we will get to that later.



So as I type this, the 24K is sold out. And to be honest, I COMPLETELY understand! It is a STUNNING palette for everyone. I know it might be intimidating for the fair skin ladies and gents, but it can be subtle with a light application. I bought DIED when I applied Legendary to my face. It was so pretty I could cry. If you can get your hands on this one, you NEED it!

Then we have Platinum Ice palette. So as I mentioned before, this is said to be and ABH Moonchild dupe. I swatched them side by side in my video. And while they have two similar shades, they are not an exact dupe. Differences? A few dollars less for Jeffree Star's and the Pro palette comes with a mirror. You can actually see them side by side in my video.

Both palettes $40. Both pretty damn stunning.

So how does the packaging look in comparison to past packaging? Take a look below.

Now  let me ask, what's your favorite packaging? Did you pick anything up from the collection??

Watch my full video and comparison swatches below.



If you watch my video after this blog, send me some emojis and say hi!! ♥

Limited Edition Sugar Cookie Jan Marini Holiday Exfoliator Review

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to check in and share an amazing product I was fortunate enough to review and try. The Jan Marini Holiday Exfoliator, this year in the Sugar Cookie scent, was recently sent to me for review.


My first impression?

When I smelled this it was like HEAVEN!! Imagine opening a container of sugar cookie dough. Absolutely amazing.

My second thought?

Will this irritate my skin? Will the smell be overwhelming? This might be too good to be true.

Final thoughts?

OBSESSED! The exfoliator smelled like heaven but wasn't overwhelming in the slightest. It didn't leave any coating on the skin after rinsed. In fact, it was the most amazing my skin has felt after exfoliating. The website does mention possible slight tingling but I felt nothing. The next morning my skin appeared brighter and definitely felt amazingly smooth. I did apply a moisturizer, but the difference between what I paired it with before and after with the Jan Marini Exfoliator was extremely noticeable.

You can find it here. Or copy the following link: https://www.janmarini.com/skin-care-products/special/marini-holiday-exfoliator.



The beauty of this exfoliator is a little goes a long way. I don't find myself going through it anytime soon and for the price you pay, it is worth the money. It sells for $90.00.

Once again, I was sent this FREE for review. Over impression was I LOVED it. While it is a little on the pricier side, I can see the benefits and would recommend it if you're okay with splurging a little.

Have you tried it? Let me know below!

BH Cosmetics GRWMs And Favorites

BH Cosmetics
I really feel this post is long overdue. If you have been following me from the beginning, you will know BH Cosmetics was one of the first brands to notice me on Instagram. It was with their simple "like" that I was able to hit 500 followers on Instagram. I remember that day perfectly. It's almost embarrassing lol. But hey, it's a moment to be proud of.

I can honestly say BH Cosmetics is a brand you do not want to sleep on. It's affordable, it's high quality, and you know what? IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER.

Since starting my blogging/ IG/ YouTube journey I've been able to try new things here and there from BH Cosmetics, but of course I can't afford it all! I was very fortunate to have a package sent to me of amazing goodies. I remember opening the box, my heart was RACING with excitement. Even my male coworkers were impressed with such a generous package. Take a peak,



I wasted NO time digging into this box of goodies. I recorded a GRWM with the Bronze Paradise palette and immediately fell in LOVE. Such a gorgeous summer palette. The look I came up with is below.



Want to know how I go this look? I recorded it! Using mostly BH Cosmetics products, I was able to put together one of my favorite summer looks. I just love a good pop of color and the Bronze Paradise Palette is perfect for that. Check out how to get the look below.




BH Cosmetics
Need the one minute breakdown? I gotchu.




Next, they released the Solar Flare palette which was the sister to the Galaxy Palette which is one of my favvvvvvorite palettes from BH Cosmetics. I LOVE this palette. Seriously, it's a must have. Anyway, the sister palette, Solar Flare consisted of a bunch of metallic and baked shadows. Its one of those palettes that you get a little fix plus happy trying to see just how metallicy you can make your look look. Here's a look at it.




I quickly paired this look with the BH Cosmetics Modern Mattes palette I was sent and came  up with this look.



I loved this look SO much. The glitter blew my mind. I was not expecting it to be so amazing. It looks white in the container and applied almost teal. It's STUNNING. Full video below.



Another too long video? Here's the one minute breakdown. Also, Yes, my foundation was wayyyyy too light, but it was mostly my lighting at the end. FFFFF it. Ya know? ;)


So that's my quick recap. You can shop BH Cosmetics by clicking on the BH link* below! What's your favorite BH products?
