No. Really, just freaking no!

Maaaan…look, this is not going to be good, like at. all.

When I first saw that these had finally dropped, I was so happy. They just appeared on the Sephora site all quiet like. I immediately grabbed Hansel & Gretel because that warm terracotta shade called to me, and then I saw Morticia and Gomez and not only for the colour but the name friend, it had to be mine. Nothing can really describe the disappointment that I felt upon finally opening my package, but first let me tell you what these are supposed to be.

Lena Lashes Liquid More Matte Than Matte Liquid Lipsticks.

IMAG3351_1

 

I think I’m low-key trying to own all the liquid lipsticks. This might be my desperate cry for help.

I first heard of Lena Lashes liquid lipsticks through social media cause does anyone do actual adverts anymore? Like do brands hire PR firms and have advertising budgets still? I mean more power to them cause Bloggers and Vloggers are free (for the most part) so…Anywhoo, I saw these swatched by Jackie Aina on her YouTube channel that I follow. I love Jackie, she’s funny as hell, she’s honest and she’s not afraid to tackle the big stuff like representation in the beauty industry, perceptions of beauty. Unlike a lot of beauty guru’s she’s fearless and unapologetic.

A Sexy 3Sum With Guerlain.

IMAG3036

 

After my great experience with the Guerlain Meteorites compact, I decided that maybe I needed to explore the brand a bit. I actually had one thing tucked away in the back of my “Never Gonna Use But What The Hell Do I Do With It” drawer, we all have one, don’t front. This is something that my mum had given me a while back, I want to say a year ago, but it may have been longer, the plastic on the box hadn’t even been removed. To tell the truth I have no idea where she got it, she and my sister disappeared for like a week to Miami I think and she came back with this knowing my finishing powder obsession, but like I said at the time I’d thought of Guerlain as a very dated brand, and getting it from my mum did nothing to diminish that perception.

The Luxury Makeup Rampage Continues With Chantecaille

IMAG2632

 

I got the Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation because I’d heard nothing but seriously excellent things about it. But legit? When I first tried it, I friggin hated it with a cold a brittle passion, because it seemed it had no coverage whatsoever. I did a “Yo, are you frigging kidding me right now? For $76 this is what I effing get”?

Then I calmed the hell down, and decided to work with what I had, so to speak.

Makeup Revolution X British Beauty Blogger Fortune Favours The Brave Eye Shadow Palette.

IMAG0196_1

 

I’ve been banging around with this chick for around a week now, and let me tell you it’s been fun, but I was completely unprepared for the pigmentation and subsequent blending struggles. Completely my fault tho, so…

I don’t know if you guys are familiar with her, since the name seems rather generic yeah? But British Beauty Blogger is one of my personal favourite bloggers. I like her because she gets a bit of everything, skincare, hair care, makeup and she’s thorough. She covers all skin tones and skin types, drug store and high end brands. The lady Jane knows her stuff.

So I was pretty stoked when I realised that she and MR had got together and had a love child. Listen, I wasn’t prepared. I thought I was, but really? I wasn’t, not for all that colour. First tip, don’t dig your brush into the pans, you’ll regret it. You’re just not grown enough for all that pigmentation.
