JSCXMANNY Collab Collection- Review&Swatches

Photo on 11-05-2017 at 19.39 #3

I apologise for my photo being backwards and shitty. I’m trying my best with my Macbook air photobooth whilst I save up for a new camera!

When I found out Jeffree Star and MannyMUA had done a collaboration,I screamed with excitement. Its no secret that I love Jeffree’s products and Manny’s collab with Ofra Cosmetics. It seemed like the perfect pairing to me. When they first went on sale I was unable to grab them in time but when I was browsing beautybay recently,to my surprise they had the entire collab in stock!

Without hesitation , I added all three items to my basket (along with a few other bits) and clicked checkout. They arrived just two days later and I couldn’t wait to test them out.  I rushed my base make up,eyeshadow etc just so I could get to the best part-highlight..obviously.

All the packaging is holographic and black which I love and has the traditional Jeffree Star logo and MannyMua’s Moon. I’m sure everyone knows by now what the names of the products are. The Skin Frost,Eclipse, is slightly smaller than the normal JS Skin Frosts but we all know they’re ridiculously huge so its no big deal. The moon and star are engraved on the highlight as the star usually is.

I’d describe Eclipse as a frosty champagne blinding highlight. Its definitely more chunky and glittery that some other Skin Frosts I own but I still love it and have used it every day since I got it.

Daddy is a cool tone brown shade and its 100% a me shade so I had no doubts about the use I’d get.

The other liquid lipstick,I’m shook, is a gorgeous darker coral shade. I was hesitant about this as I tend to stick to nudes and browns but holy shit I am so glad I got it! I’ve actually got more wear out of this one,which I didn’t expect!

Both liquid lipsticks are incredibly creamy,velvety and matte-everything you want in a liquid lipstick right? Just one application is enough and when removing the product from the tube the perfect amount comes out so you don’t have to dip back in for more. These.Do.Not.Budge. I can wear these and kiss my boyfriend and not worry about it coming off or smudging!

Just for reference these were taken on my very old Macbook Air photobooth and look at the pigmentation of those lipsticks and the highlight!!

There is a restock on the 13th (May) and it’ll be your last chance to grab them if you’re still undecided-grab them!!

Willow’s Eighth Month Update

I can’t believe shes 9 months already. Its killing me that in 3 months (more or less) she’s going to be ONE.

Anyways little madam has two little teeth,she likes biting everything and everyone with and laughing her head off.

We’ve also started brushing he lil peggys with her own little pink toothbrush-she hates it and pulls a disgusted face. I think it must be the texture?

Trying to stand on her own two feet without holding onto anything and then getting overly giddy when she does and falling over.

She now likes to sing ‘la la la’ whenever someone else is singing a song-its so cute.

She sits on the floor dancing to her ‘If you’re happy and you know it’  music sing a long book and its the cutest thing ever.

The only word she ever says nowadays seems to be ‘Mama’ she can also say “Dada” and “Drink?”-well something close to that,more like “Drin Drin”.

She also does high fives!! Now we need to work on blowing kisses.

Peek-A-Boo still remains her favourite game.

She has also decided that under a very tiny side table is her new den. She likes to hide under there and come up with mischievous monkey plans.

Recently,shes been quite poorly which means over the past few days shes just been napping all the time. She’s had a horrible temperature and lots of calpol.

Unrelated to that,shes also been having ‘absences’ where she goes limp/floppy and stares into space or she just passes out. Its horrible and very scary. However,we’ve been told its normal and some babies do this when crying but we won’t know for definite if its that until our upcoming Doctors appointment.

We took her to the farm for the first time and she didn’t give a single flying duck about any of the animals. She was just looking around in utter disgust-probably at the smell of poop,such a princess. The one animal she was somewhat interested in was all the budgies and parrots they had,she kept waving and trying to get to them.

She’s currently obsessed with empty lucozade bottles..she just likes playing with them. I don’t even bother questioning her anymore.

She has a dolly my Grandma got her for Easter,which she carries around with her like her own little baby and oh my god its adorable. She also gets really jealous when I cuddle it and call it ‘my baby’,she’ll throw dolly on the floor and fake cry til I pick her up and cuddle her instead.

She takes after me and loves her fruits and veggies but she really really really doesn’t like chocolate pudding. I’m not being funny but as a parent you try the foods you’re giving your child to check its not to hot etc and the chocolate pudding is SO GOOD. Its the kind of thing I’d eat in primary school? Strange baby.

When Willow was smaller,her Daddy would stroke her hair as I fed her bottle to help her fall asleep. Miss Independent strokes her own hair when her Daddy isn’t there now and its the cutest thing ever-that or she rips my hair out instead.

She started drinking water out of her beaker by herself but still cant take the weight off the milk bottle-or she is just lazy..really lazy.

They’re all the things I can think off at the top of my head! I really need to start making note as I go along rather than rushing and using my Mum brain(known for its bad memory) at the end of each month!

Hope you all enjoy the low quality Macbook photobooth photos! I’ve not got a phone or camera at the moment so this has had to make do.She still looks hella cute tho.

Update: Since this post,Willow has been to the Doctors and we’ve been told to “keep an eye on it”. She also has a deep dimple at the bottom of her spine thats been there since birth and she’s been referred to a specialist about it as they want to check theres definitely skin at the bottom of it.(Which there is because when she was a newborn the hole was a lot bigger and not as deep! Just a safety precaution really so no worries there.)
