Jaclyn Hill Favorites by Morphe Brushes

I know you've all heard the hype over the Jaclyn Hill Favorites palette. The preorder was available on New Years Day and so many people had issues ordering theirs. There became so many issues that people just didn't bother ordering. I was lucky and hopped on the site on January 2nd and I had very little issues ordering. I was going to keep this beauty to myself, but I heard they will be releasing more of these palettes in February so I wanted you to know if it it's worth it.

Two words - HELL YES!!!


These eyeshadows are smooth, VERY pigmented, and blend easily. These eyeshadows are a dream!! I can't get over how BEAUTIFUL and affordable(around $28) this palette is!

Here are some amazing review videos WITH swatches.

Did you get this palette already..? 
Do you plan on ordering it when it's released again in February?

Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Lip Colour

 Long wearing lip colours have been 'on trend' lately and I'm loving it. I love the process of applying makeup, but having to touch up several times a day just annoys me. 


Here to save my lip colour day is Rimmel Provocalips.
 I LOVE these lip colours from Rimmel! It's pretty rare that I want to own EVERY color in a collection, but with these lip colours that's exactly what I want! 

Here are the two colors I own from the collection: I'll Call You & Kiss Fatal.
 
Up to 16 Hours of lip liberation. Wild without a trace!
• Kiss proof, transfer proof, food proof high impact endless colour.
• No tight feeling or dry lips. Lips feel smooth and moisturized all day long.
• Easy removal with Oil based makeup remover

STEP 1: Apply colour and keep lips apart for 60 seconds until the product sets.
STEP 2: Apply topcoat to lock the colour, moisture and add shine.

10 available shades

Swatches
Kiss Fatal & I'll Call You 

Pros
-Pigmented. You only need one coat to get the color you want.
-Affordable.  About $6-$8 at the drugstore.
-LONG lasting. I get about 4-5 hours of wear with these, even with eating.
-The top coat is truly hydrating, no dry lips! Plus it smells and tastes like candy.
-They do not transfer!! I can kiss Kaley & my husband as much as I want and these stay on my lips. 

Cons
-This is VERY liquidy, which can make it hard to get precise application. A lip liner solves this problem.
-After 4-5 hours you get the dreaded crumbly lip issue! However you can dap that part off and apply some more lip colour and that issue is gone. 

Overall
I think these are a hit! The few issues I do have with these are solved easily!

Have you tried these lip colours yet?
