Lost In A Book TAG

some_text

Hello, and welcome to ANOTHER tag post! I’m sorry but I love to write these and answer the awesome questions that come with them. So why the hell not?! Today’s tag post is thanks to Natalie over at Simply Just Natalie, as whilst she didn’t tag me to do this post, I thought I’d give it a go anyway.

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Yeah my bed. I love to just snuggle up in bed with lots of pillows to rest against and lie there reading my book. Such bliss!

2. Where do you like to read?

I can read anywhere other than a car to be honest. Lately I mostly read at work during my lunch break, but I sometimes read in my car when I arrive at work a little early in the mornings.

3. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Random piece of paper for sure! I do have a few book marks lying around, but I like random things with good memories attached. Currently using a little Hello Kitty card that Sarah over at Raiin Monkey sent me when I won a competition of hers. It’s really nice as a bookmark to be honest:)

4. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at a chapter?

I usually like to stop at a chapter, but I usually stop at a page where the next sentence continues onto the next, so I’m not having to find out where I got to on said page. However with manga I don’t really have an issue to stop reading wherever.

5. Do you eat or drink whilst reading?

I usually have a drink on  hand to sip on whilst I read, but I don’t usually tend to eat whilst I read as I find it can be messy. Nothing worse than dropping food on your books pages!

6. E-reader or real book?

Real book!!!

7. Music or TV whilst reading?

Neither, I like quiet so I can concentrate.

8. One book at a time or several at once?

To be honest I have had several books on the go at once, and I really didn’t like it. So one at a time for me.

9. Reading at home or everywhere?

Everywhere!!! Especially abroad on holidays as I find I gain some amazing memories from it. Bridget Jones is a good example, and the Shopaholic books.:)

10. Reading aloud or silently in your head?

I like to do both sometimes, but I find if I real aloud it takes me longer to get through the book. Lately I just read in my head.

some_text

11. Fiction or non-fiction?

Both, I like either.

12. Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I have done in the past… *smacks hand* I’m terrible at doing things like that during watching a film at home too. Wikipedia gets looked at and plot endings get ruined. Woe is me for ruining the spoilers for myself.😛

13. Break the spine or keep a book like new?

I like to keep the book new to be honest! I know that sounds awfully dull. The only time I break the books spine is if it’s second hand and I’ve paid next to fuck all for it.

14. Do you write in your books?

Hell no! I find it a crime when people do things like that. >.<

15. Your Favourite book?

God I don’t know to be honest… One of my favourite books to read as a teenager was Guitar Girl by Sarra Madding which I have read various amounts of time. It shaped the sort of books I love to read and write now. But another firm favourite are the Shopaholic books, The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and It’s Kind of a Funny Story. I just love teen novels. They’re what I love the most and I don’t know why.

SO that was the book tag! I’m surprised I didn’t talk loads about manga to be honest, considering that’s the majority of what I read at the moment.

The one question that I hoped would pop up was, “What book do you wish to read next?” and my answer would have been Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. I have a “sample” of it on my iBooks to read and so far I’m enjoying it. I might buy it on my phone soon so I can read it before I start work, and whilst I’m on my lunch breaks.

Go ahead and tell me which book you want to pick up next to read!

Will you be having a go at the tag? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Redrum – Review

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 26 14 am_zpswchgxsv7.jpg

If I wasn’t bad enough last week buying Scorpio, I bought Redrum too! But after pining and lusting after it for so long, how could I not finally pick it up?! This is one of the first shades Jeffree Star brought out, and one I wanted from the very start. I won’t lie, I was too anxious to order from the official website at the time of these coming out, otherwise I would have ordered the three part bundle with Redrum, Prom Night, and I’m Royalty. Alas, no time like the present as I finally own Redrum, and boy was I excited to write this review for you all today!

These are fast becoming my favourite beauty brand at the moment, yes they’re even shoving MAC Cosmetics away. They’re just the best liquid lipsticks I have tried, and I want to own them all.

Instead of ordering from Cocktail Cosmetics like I usually do, I bought these from the official Jeffree Star Cosmetics website. My reasons being that I didn’t want to worry I would miss out on Scorpio and Redrum is I waited and went through Cocktail Cosmetics. I’ve already reviewed Scorpio which you can read here.

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 26 17 am_zpsom5cibsb.jpg

Redrum is a gorgeous glam red colour, and very vintage looking. It’s described as, “The perfect red: this matte cool toned red looks amazing on any skin tone.” I love wearing the colour red, it’s just a perfect colour that suits anyone!

First thing I want to talk about is how long delivery took from America, and oh boy did it take a while! I ordered the two shades the day that Scorpio came out, and it took three weeks for them to arrive to me! What was more annoying was I had to pay £13.00 import fees as well. That’s the price of one from Cocktail Cosmetics! Which was really annoying… I understand that I think a week was held up due to the Jeffree Star Cosmetics factory getting broken into. My friend Claire and a few other UK bloggers received their purchases nearly a week before I got mine, which really sucked! Me and Claire ordered minutes apart from one another, which is what was the most annoying part. I was devastated as I wanted to try my products on my day off work. So you can only imagine how on the edge of my seat I was to try these bad boys out?! I got them on my weekend off mind, which wasn’t so bad. It just made me incredibly anxious that my items were lost.

Finally they arrived, and were totally worth the wait! The first one I had a play with was Scorpio, chanting “be still my beating heart!” as I tried it on, which was slowly followed by Redrum. For nearly two years I have wanted this gorgeous red in my collection, and now I finally have it!

Like the majority of Jeffree Star Comestics, Redrum comes in the signature pink box and of course is in the same tube as all the liquid lipsticks come in. The applicator is a doe foot and is really fluffy, which means it picks up more product, and therefore leaves more product behind on the lips. I did find however that this doe foot was a bit different than usual and had a distinctive scoop type shape to it. I imagine this is for grabbing more product, and also because the shape of the applicator fits snug onto the lips when applying the product. The product itself doesn’t have a scent to it, which is still a shame. Even though Jeffree Star is bringing some of his newer shades out with scents! WOOP! I like having a light scent to my lip products, but at the same time due to what kind of lip product this is, I’m still pretty pleased this is scentless.

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 28 13 am_zps1jv3zj4j.jpg

Like the other velour liquid lipsticks I own, Redrum is beautifully pigmented, which by now is no surprise to me, due to the high quality of these liquid lipsticks. This was one of the first shades that Jeffree Star came out with, and I’ve seen it all over Instagram, and on beauty bloggers websites and YouTube channel for ages, so I KNEW I wanted it. I know what I was in store for when I swatched this, a red lipstick, so perfect that Marilyn Monroe herself would have worn this. Like all the liquid lipsticks this is really pigmented and therefore a little bit goes a long way. This isn’t do bad to apply without a lip liner, but I definitely prefer to use one to make sure I get a perfect cupid’s bow!

From L-R: Masochist, Hoe Hoe Hoe, Unicorn Blood, Scorpio, and Redrum.

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 34 59 am_zpst2vt5p51.jpg

From Top to bottom: Masochist, Hoe Hoe Hoe, Unicorn Blood, Scorpio, and Redrum.

I did wonder if the formula of this one would be different from Masochist (you can read my review of that here), and Hoe Hoe Hoe (you can read my review of that here) and to be honest it is extremely different! I found the formula was more watery/liquidy than the ones mentioned, but I actually liked this as it meant I didn’t need to use as much as I find I sometimes have to with Masochist due to it being a little thicker. I recently found out that Hoe Hoe Hoe has a thick formula due to the ingredients used to give it that shimmer/glitter affect inside. I also discovered that pretty much all the liquid lipstick shades are like this, so I’m no longer going to be surprised by the consistency of the formula.

Since Masochist was my first Jeffree Star shade and it stains your lips, I also worry that any shade I buy now will do the same thing. Alas though Redrum doesn’t stain, which I was really happy about. I don’t think I’ll be worrying about staining occurring anymore in the future… Yay!

As I mentioned before the first time I wore this was the day after I got it when I had to pop to the shops for a few things. I have since then worn it for work and everyone has complimented it, and said how pretty it looked. I know a couple of the girls I work with love and want Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, so I’m forever talking to them about the shades. You can’t go wrong with a red shade, especially for work.

Like all liquid lipsticks this will get worn away if you are in contact with any food (or possibly drinks) that contain oil. This lasts throughout my shift at work too, only budging on my lunch break when I grab something to eat, which of course is perfect! Re-applying this is really easy as well. You can just apply it to the parts of your  lips where needed, or even all over.

I of course used the “kiss” and “finger” test to show off that this product doesn’t come off when in contact with anything, and everyone I have shown it to has been impressed, especially my boyfriend who hates being covered in lip shapes kisses.

I have in the past found these hard to remove and have had to scrub away at my lips to remove the shade, only Masochist to be honest. I apply an oil based remover to a cotton pad and then apply it to the lips and wipe away when I feel the oil has soaked up the lipstick. Even for such a dark shade it comes off really easily, which I really do love.

As I always do, I show off my mug wearing said lip colour… By the way I attempted a jokey Marilyn Monroe look.😛

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 30 27 am_zps0gkqqbn6.jpg

Overall what do I think about Redrum? It was so worth the wait! I couldn’t wait to get this after wanting it for so long, but I did worry it would look different on me than it does online in pictures, and on other people. There’s not really anything unique about this shade as it is your classic red shade, which you can never go wrong with! I love wearing a red lip, and whilst I do have some staples and favourites in my make up collection, I can see this one becoming a fast favourite to reach for. I’ll wear this all year around, especially over the summer in the evenings for nights out.

This shade sold out surprisingly quickly considering it’s one of the first shades that Jeffree Star brought out. At the time of writing this post (12th May) it is currently sold out, both from the Jeffree Star website, however it is still available on Cocktail Cosmetics website.

When in stock you can buy this from Jeffree Star Cosmetics for $18.00, or Cocktail Cosmetics for £14.00.

I usually write on every Jeffree Star review I write three shades that I am lusting after, however this time I’m going to mention something else I’m after. A Jeffree Star Velour Lip Scrub in Strawberry Gum. “Use our delicious sugar based lip scrub to prep your lips before applying any liquid lipstick. Take a scoop out and rub your mouth in circular motions. Lick away excess (yes, it’s edible!) or wipe off with a tissue.” I got to give this a sniff when I recently visited the Cocktail Cosmetics store and I fell in love. I would have bought one there and then, but I’ll save it for next time.😛

What shades are you after, or what shades do you own? Any you recommend? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and have a great week!

The Chocolate Quarter – Review

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 05 11 pm_zpslmpa20ug.jpg

This review is way overdue on my blog and I feel bad for only getting around to writing it now. To be honest I wanted to save eating all these yummy chocolates that I’ll be talking about today for a rainy day… Today isn’t a rainy day, but I am in the mood for something sweet, and so is Dane who will help me try these chocolates today.

Back at the start of the month I attended a blog event at The Chocolate Quarter, down in the jewellery quarter in Birmingham. The event was amazing, and one of my favourites to date. We go to learn about chocolate, sample some of their goodies, as well as make some chocolates of our own! You can read all about the event here.

At the end of the event we were offered 10% a box of chocolates, so instead of £6.00 they only cost us £5.00. This including the four we made during the event, AND a special Star Wars chocolate to celebrate May 4th (or May the fourth be with you – AKA Star Wars Day) I thought this was a complete bargain for 10 chocolates.

From top to bottom I’ll talk about the chocolates I bought with a description from The Chocolate Quarter website, and then do a small review of each. Oh hello sugar rush!😛

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 06 07 pm_zpsupxmtcnc.jpg

From L-R:

Coffee & Cardamon – A lot of cardamom and little coffee. Our new mashup.

Chocolate caramel truffle with chocolate powder coating which I made.

Chocolate caramel truffle with icing sugar-coating which I made.

From L-R:

Sea Salt Caramel – Firm caramel seasoned with fleur de sel salt.

Cappuccino – Coffee caramel topped with white chocolate “foam” in a dark cup.

Irish Cream – Irish Cream liqueur drenched in gorgeous milk chocolate.

From L-R:

Chocolate caramel truffle which I made.

Freshy – Refreshing zesty lemon and lime in sweet white chocolate.

Now that I have shown them off with their descriptions, it’s onto the reviews! I will be reviewing them in the order that I have shown them above.

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 06 38 pm_zpsvwpfjmrx.jpg

Coffee & Cardamom – I LOVE coffee chocolates so I knew I had to pick this one up when I read that it contained coffee… However I was slightly disappointed because I couldn’t take any coffee! Dane could however, so maybe my taste buds just aren’t doing as good today. The centre was a nice creamy/gooey consistency, but not the sort of gooey that goes all over your chin and down your favourite t-shirt. I liked that! The look of this one was plain but also really cute with the little gold coffee bean design on top. I would buy this again, as although I couldn’t taste the coffee, it was still lovely due to the creamy centre.

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 06 50 pm_zpsdbxagqbc.jpg

Sea Salt Caramel – I love salted caramel flavoured things. The nicest salted caramel chocolate I ever tried was some that my friend Gabriella bought me from Thorntons for my birthday last year. Well I can’t decide which I like best! They’re both nice in different ways to be honest. Thorntons has a gooey centre, whilst this one is a chewy caramel centre which has chunks of salt inside. To be honest I think I do prefer Thorntons for various different reasons, but this just ticks all the boxes for me and I would definitely buy this again! The salt is really salty tasting and I bloody love it!

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 06 28 pm_zpsf5r6en37.jpg

Cappuccino – I have so much to say about this chocolate. It is the best one in the box, both for appearance and for how it tastes. As you can see this is in the shape of a gorgeous little coffee cup with cappuccino inside. It’s dark chocolate which makes the cup itself, and white chocolate to make the foam. However when I bit into this it also had some caramel at the bottom of the white chocolate, whether this was to hold it in place (which I’m sure it was…) I don’t know, but damn it was a nice surprise! I shared these chocolates with Dane, but I really wish I didn’t have to because I could have eaten this all to myself. I will be buying this one again in the future! Especially for my dad as he loves chocolate, novelty things like this, and he drinks cappuccino so it’s a win win situation!

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 06 59 pm_zpsqlxz1k43.jpg

Irish Cream – This is definitely one of my favourites from the bunch. Oh boy do I love this chocolate! It’s got a lovely strong taste of Irish Cream in there, alongside the smooth and creamy centre. If you love alcoholic chocolates, and especially love chocolate such as Bailey’s (which for the record is one of  my favourites!) then you will love this! The look of it is simple with some white chocolate on top, but I like how simplistic it is, considering it packs a punch when you eat it! Gold stars to The Chocolate Quarter for this beauty.

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 07 15 pm_zpspl2aaid5.jpg

Freshy – This was one that I pondered over buying for quite some time. I love my lemon and lime tasting things due to how refreshing they are. This is a white chocolate with a lemon and lime citrus mousse in the centre. We liked this one but we weren’t overly keen. Personally I found it was a little sickly due to the white chocolate, but I’m more of a dark chocolate lover so this is probably why. Dane commented saying that he wasn’t sure if the lemon and lime worked with the white chocolate. The one thing I like about this however is how it looked. It reminded me of a marble effect which I thought was really clever. If I was offered this I would eat it, but to buy it again myself… I would prefer to pick up something else.

Another one of the chocolates I mentioned I was given after the event was a Star Wars one, and out of the four we could choose, I decided on a Stormtrooper. This was your bog standard milk chocolate, nothing in the centre etc. It was yummy and I would buy these on their own to be honest, and keep them in a jar in the fridge for rainy days.

So what did I think of all the chocolates overall?

Like? Cappuccino and Irish Cream. These two were perfect chocolates for me, and I adored them so damn much.

Dislike? Freshy. What a massive let down in comparison to the others. I’m glad this was the first one I tried because it set me up for some amazing goodies later on.

Would I go to The Chocolate Quarter and buy from them again? A definite yes! I really want to buy the two I liked again, as well as try some of the other ones they have up for grabs, oh and the ones I got to try for Father’s Day at the event.

Here is a list of ones I want to try next time; Jewellery Porter, Smoked Bacon, Dairy Free Peppermint, Pistachio Halva, and Sea Salt Praline.

Overall I really do love the chocolates I bought! They were all yummy, and are now in a happy place in mine and Dane’s bellies.

Will you be checking out The Chocolate Quarter anytime soon? If so which chocolates do you have your eyes on buying? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a great week.

Beauty Blogger Tag

some_text

Image taken from weheartit.com

Good morning, I hope you are all well! It is the start of a new week, and I can’t believe how quick May is going by already. Towards the end of April I was tagged by my wonderful friend and fellow blogger Kirsty over at Cosmetics Beauty Rainbow to take part in the beauty blogger tag. I felt loved, and it’s only now am I getting around to giving this tag a go myself!

some_text

Image taken from weheartit.com

1. What is your signature makeup style?
Well considering I only wear lipstick… A strong bold lip colour is always my signature look. Everyone always comments about how I wear dark shades like my reds, dark pinks, and purples. Can never say no to a Marilyn Monroe red shade, or a hot pink. My favourite lipstick brand to rock are Jeffree Star Cosmetics and MAC Cosmetics.

2. Have you ever made an embarrassing beauty blunder? And what was it?
Probably back in the day when I wore thick black eyeliner and eyeshadow! I was a total emo kid, and I thought it looked amazing. What annoys me is that I got bullied for my “panda eyes” and when I stopped wearing it, everyone started to rock it again! GRR! The same happened when I was in my early teens, I would wear blue lipstick and everyone picked on me. Now what is everyone wearing??? POINT PROVEN!

3. What is your favourite makeup brand?
MAC Cosmetics and Benefit for “high-end”.

Bourjois and NYX for “high street”.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics for “indie”.

4. When did you start wearing makeup?
When I was fourteen/fifteen I really started to experiment with make up. I rocked dark green, red, black, dark purple, and blue denim coloured eyeshadows with thick eyeliner. I didn’t wear much when it came to lip products… Probably a clear lip gloss.

5. Why did you start wearing makeup?
I think it was mostly based on what I would have seen in magazines, or on singers/celebrities. Avril Lavigne and Green Day were big inspirations on my make up when I was a teenager… Oh dear I was just an emo kid.😛

6. Are you more high-end or high street (drugstore) when it comes to beauty products?
I’m a bit of both to be honest… I probably own more high-end than high street. A lot of my high street stuff I buy and then think, “meh I could have paid a little more for something better.” It depends though. I definitely prefer high end though to be honest.

7. Who’s your makeup icon?
I don’t have one to be honest. I am my own makeup icon.😉

8. How do your prep beauty wise for a first date?
I used to just put on a bit of primer, translucent finishing powder, and usually Rebel lipstick by MAC as it was my favourite when it came to dating. However, on my second date with Dane I wore zero make up, because that is me. I don’t wear make up, so why do myself up all the time?

9. Is there a certain perfume you wear that brings back a memory?
Angel by Thierry Muglar. It reminds me of my childhood. I remember when my mom first bought this and I loved the smell of it. It reminded me of her and holidays. She bought me a bottle of my own when I was a teenager and since then I have bought my own bottle and had it refilled once. I don’t actually wear this as much as I used to, but I still adore it. It’s one of my favourite scents. The same can be said for Alien by Thierry Muglar too, which reminds me of Dane. I wore it on our first date together and he commented saying how lovely I smelt. I wear it for every anniversary we’ve had so far together too. He always says how it remembers it from our first date and that really makes me smile.:)

10. Whats the best bit of beauty advise you got and who gave you it?
Probably everything my mom has ever told me! Never to pluck my eyebrows is my main one. I have big, thick full eyebrows and everyone teased me for it when I was growing up. Now people are jealous because they don’t have any.😛

Now here are the questions that Kirsty came up with for us to answer!😀

1. If you had to choose one product you couldn’t live without for the rest of your life what would it be?

Definitely lip balm. I love having soft lips and even if I couldn’t have a lipstick to wear I would still want a nice tinted lip balm of course. My Korres Lip Butter to be precise.

2. What is your favourite “go to” blush product?

I don’t wear blush… :’)

3. Do you follow a specific skincare routine either day/ night or both and what products do you use?

I follow a really specific skincare routine most days. I wash my face, apply toner, eye gel, moisturiser, primer, translucent powder, clear brow gel, lip balm, and a lipstick or gloss.:)

4. What do you think of the current liquid lipstick trend?

I FUCKING LOVE IT! I am definitely a liquid lipstick addict.😛

5. Have you discovered any new/ different beauty brands recently?

I’ve recently purchased my first NYX goodies! Two lip glosses to be exact and I love them so much. I want to buy more. WAH!😛

6. How do you apply your base products, do you prefer to use your fingers, beauty blender, brush or another applicator?

I apply my primer with my fingers. I don’t see the point in using a brush. I do of course use a powder brush to apply my translucent powder.

7. What is your favourite eyeshadow palette, past or present?

I don’t use eyeshadow anymore sadly. I never owned one either when I did wear eye make up. My favourite eyeshadows were by MAC Cosmetics, and Barry M. One palette I wanted for years was the Aquataenia by Lime Crime… But let’s not discuss Lime Crime here…😛

8. Do you have a nostalgic beauty product that you would always use in your younger years?

Miss Sporty clear mascara, which I still use to this day on my eyebrows!

9. Your favourite high-end product?

MAC Cosmetics lipstick, specifically the shade Rebel.

10. What is your favourite eyeliner product and do you have any tips to achieving the perfect winged liner?

 I don’t wear eyeliner, but one of the best I tried was by Collection 2000.:) I don’t have any tips either I’m afraid… Sorry.

So that was the beauty blogger tag! I’m so pleased that Kirsty tagged me into this as I haven’t been tagged for quite a long time, and due to that I feel loved. ^_^

I tag everyone who reads this to give it a go! I won’t make up any of my own questions as I’m crap at stuff like that.😛

Make sure to let me know in the comments down below if you give it a go yourselves.

Until next time, take care all and have a lovely week.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Scorpio – Review

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 17 35 am_zps78gxhccd.jpg

Yes I am naughty! I’m meant to be saving money, but alas I recently bought myself not one, but two new Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. These are fast becoming my favourite beauty brand at the moment, yes they’re even shoving MAC Cosmetics away. They’re just the best liquid lipsticks I have tried, and I want to own them all.

Instead of ordering from Cocktail Cosmetics like I usually do, I bought these from the official Jeffree Star Cosmetics website. My reasons being that I didn’t want to worry I would miss out on Scorpio and Redrum is I waited and went through Cocktail Cosmetics. I’ll be reviewing Redrum next week by the way!

I haven’t been so excited for one of Jeffree Stars launches since Hoe Hoe Hoe before Christmas (you can read my review on that shade here), so when he started to talk about Scorpio on Instragram, and giving us sneak peaks, I knew I had to have it.

 photo Photo 12-05-2016 11 18 56 am_zpsylmdgjp0.jpg

Scorpio is a grey purple shade, and very unique in my opinion! It’s described as, “This is what happens when grey and purple make love. Jeffree is a Scorpio so it’s only fitting he made a color in it’s honor!” I honestly couldn’t have explained it any differently myself! I love my purple shades and this is one I knew I had to add to my ever growing collection when I first saw it on Instagram.

First thing I want to talk about is how long delivery took from America, and oh boy did it take a while! I ordered the two shades the day that Scorpio came out, and it took three weeks for them to arrive to me! What was more annoying was I had to pay £13.00 import fees as well. That’s the price of one from Cocktail Cosmetics! Which was really annoying… I understand that I think a week was held up due to the Jeffree Star Cosmetics factory getting broken into. My friend Claire and a few other UK bloggers received their purchases nearly a week before I got mine, which really sucked! Me and Claire ordered minutes apart from one another, which is what was the most annoying part. I was devastated as I wanted to try my products on my day off work. So you can only imagine how on the edge of my seat I was to try these bad boys out?! I got them on my weekend off mind, which wasn’t so bad. It just made me incredibly anxious that my items were lost.

Finally they arrived, and were totally worth the wait! The first one I had a play with was Scorpio, chanting “be still my beating heart!” as I tried it on. I wore Scorpio the day after it arrived to go to Dane’s parents house for Sunday lunch. Dane’s gran complimented the colour I had on, which surprised me! I thought she would have said it was too dark, or too grey looking, so I was pleased that she liked it. After we had to pop to CEX to return a damaged item we bought but I put Redrum on for this.

Like the majority of Jeffree Star Comestics, Scorpio comes in the signature pink box and of course is in the same tube as all the liquid lipsticks come in. The applicator is a doe foot and is really fluffy, which means it picks up more product, and therefore leaves more product behind on the lips. I did find however that this doe foot was a bit different than usual and had a distinctive scoop type shape to it. I imagine this is for grabbing more product, and also because the shape of the applicator fits snug onto the lips when applying the product. The product itself doesn’t have a scent to it, which is still a shame. Even though Jeffree Star is bringing some of his newer shades out with scents! WOOP! I like having a light scent to my lip products, but at the same time due to what kind of lip product this is, I’m still pretty pleased this is scentless.

Like the other velour liquid lipsticks I own, Scorpio is super duper pigmented, which by now is no surprise to me, due to the high quality of these liquid lipsticks. In the three weeks this took to arrive I did a lot of research on Instagram to see how this could possibly look on my skin tone. When I swatched it I was pleasantly surprised, although at first I found it looked more grey than purple, but this changed when I applied it to my lips, when it went to look more like a purple with grey undertones. Like all the liquid lipsticks this is really pigmented and therefore a little bit goes a long way. I did apply this a couple of times without a lip liner, and due to how dark it is I found it didn’t look as good as it could. So from then on I have used a lip liner to get a nice defined line for my lips, especially my cupid’s bow.

From L-R: Masochist, Hoe Hoe Hoe, Unicorn Blood, and Scorpio.

From Top to bottom: Masochist, Hoe Hoe Hoe, Unicorn Blood, and Scorpio.

I did wonder if the formula of this one would be different from Masochist (you can read my review of that here), and Hoe Hoe Hoe (you can read my review of that here) and to be honest it is extremely different! I found the formula was more watery/liquidy than the ones mentioned, but I actually liked this as it meant I didn’t need to use as much as I find I sometimes have to with Masochist due to it being a little thicker. I recently found out that Hoe Hoe Hoe has a thick formula due to the ingredients used to give it that shimmer/glitter affect inside. I also discovered that pretty much all the liquid lipstick shades are like this, so I’m no longer going to be surprised by the consistency of the formula.

Since Masochist was my first Jeffree Star shade and it stains your lips, I also worry that any shade I buy now will do the same thing. Alas though Redrum doesn’t stain, which I was really happy about.

As I mentioned before the first time I wore this was the day after I got it and I wore it to for Sunday lunch with Dane’s family. I have since then worn it for work and everyone has complimented it, and said how pretty it looked. I know a couple of the girls I work with love and want Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, so I’m forever talking to them about the shades.

Like all liquid lipsticks this will get worn away if you are in contact with any food (or possibly drinks) that contain oil. This lasts throughout my shift at work too, only budging on my lunch break when I grab something to eat, which of course is perfect! Re-applying this is really easy as well. You can just apply it to the parts of your  lips where needed, or even all over.

I of course used the “kiss” and “finger” test to show off that this product doesn’t come off when in contact with anything, and everyone I have shown it to has been impressed, especially my boyfriend who hates being covered in lip shapes kisses.

I have in the past found these hard to remove and have had to scrub away at my lips to remove the shade, only Masochist to be honest. I apply an oil based remover to a cotton pad and then apply it to the lips and wipe away when I feel the oil has soaked up the lipstick. Even for such a dark shade it comes off really easily, which I really do love.

As I always do, I show off my mug wearing said lip colour… ENJOY!😛

Overall how do I feel about Scorpio? Well it was a shade I was extremely excited about and I worried that I was in fact TOO excited about it and when it would arrive I wouldn’t like it. However this isn’t the case at all, and I really love it. It is a very unique shade and one I have been after since I felt confident enough to wear purple shades. I was also concerned that the shade Miss Mauve by Aromi Beauty (link to review here) would be exactly the same, but they’re nothing alike! This is a shade that I’ll rock throughout the year, but I think during the winter months it’ll be amazing worn with winter shades like mustard, navy, and burgundy.

This shade sold out hella quick and at the time of writing this post (12th May) it is currently sold out, both from the Jeffree Star website, as well as Cocktail Cosmetics. However! If you are able to travel to the actual Cocktail Cosmetic store I know when I went there last weekend they had quite a few Scorpio’s left so maybe make the trip there if you really want to pick it up soon, as it’ll sell out fast. I would say drop Cocktail Cosmetics a tweet before making the journey mind, as if they have none left then it’ll be a journey for nothing.

When in stock you can buy this from Jeffree Star Cosmetics for $18.00, or Cocktail Cosmetics for £14.00.

I write on every Jeffree Star review I write three shades I am lusting after. So my current 3 shades I am now lusting after (STILL!!!!!) Abused (This purpled toned navy blue is one of a kind. Matte. Bold. Sultry. We ALL abuse something. Whether it’s power, love, money or beauty… Just don’t let it control you.), Doll Parts (This soft cool toned pink looks like Lindsay Lohan’s life in the movie Mean Girls.), and Gemini (Inspired by Jeffree’s best friend who is a Gemini, this terra-cotta warm-toned nude is the perfect finish to any makeup look!).

What shades are you after, or what shades do you own? Any you recommend? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and have a great weekend!

The Chocolate Quarter – Blog Event!

 photo Photo 04-05-2016 6 27 22 am_zps0j7s8zsr.png

Last week for me was pretty intense, stressful, and busy. It was mentally draining, and I hadn’t felt that way since my last couple of weeks studying my masters last year. However last Wednesday I attended a blog event organised by the amazing Suzie over at Suzie 81 Speaks (link to her blog here) and hosted by the lovely bunch over at The Chocolate Quarter.

I’m not going to lie when I say that this event was the highlight of my week, and I had more fun than I thought I was going to have. The invite said how it was going to be on for an hour and a half, it lasted nearly three hours! Not going to complain about that mind, as I had so much fun and met some awesome people!

The Chocolate Quarter has only been open since February this year, and is located in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. It isn’t rocket science when I say what kind of shop it is… It’s obviously a chocolate shop, but I found that it was a lot different than your usual Thorntons, or Hotel Chocolat. This is an independent company and their chocolate is just different from anywhere else, they have some interesting, and unusual flavours that you won’t be able to find in chain stores.

I was invited to the event by Suzie nearly a month prior to it happening, so I had a good look on their website to have a nose at what yummy chocolate goodness I was in for! I was in heaven, let me tell you, so can you imagine how I was when I entered the actual shop last week?!

I just want to quickly add, that I was in a bit of a rush to get to this event as I had finished work, had to get home and quickly get ready, and then get through traffic in the city centre to haul my booty to the event. Due to this I wasn’t able to take my digital SLR with me and get the best pictures I could. This being said, my iPhone does produce some pretty good pictures. Oh and by the way, this post is going to be hella picture heavy!

The first thing I noticed when I walked into the shop (apart from all the lovely people attending the event :P) was the amazing display of chocolates which was in front of me. I literally died and went to unique chocolate heaven! As I had already eyed up what goodies were on offer to buy I already had an idea of what I wanted, so I got to have a proper look at them in the flesh. Which by the way, I bought! But I’m going to save that for a separate post.😛

The store itself wasn’t the biggest, but it was the perfect size, and due to the decor was light and airy. Definitely nice to venture into and was very welcoming. The store itself was decorated lightly in products they sell, and I was salivating at the thought of some of them. They had hampers you could buy, biscuits, chocolates, sweets, as well as the chocolates they make and sell. So there is various options for everyone!

To kick start the event we all got to have some of the Aztec drinking chocolate that they had prepared for us. From working in a coffee shop, I’ve made some kick ass hot chocolate in my time, but this stuff was beautiful! It wasn’t made with milk, which usually a lot of coffee shops do, but instead just water, hot of course. They owners were telling us how milk doesn’t really help give the true taste of chocolate, but instead masks it and hides the taste, whereas hot water doesn’t do this and you get the full flavour of the chocolate. It was delicious, and we got to add various spices to it such as ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and even chilli! For my first cup of hot chocolate I decided to add nutmeg. It was pretty subtle, but tasted amazing!

After trying the hot chocolate it was onto finding out a few in depth details about chocolate, and how it is made, as well as how The Chocolate Quarter make their amazing chocolates! It was really interesting to listen to, and Jay who was telling us all about it was very thorough, but not like school teacher boring thorough. We got to try three different types of chocolate to try and find the key notes to each. If you don’t like dark chocolate, you would have hated this. I love dark chocolate so this was fun for me to do. You placed a couple of little buttons onto your tongue, let it melt, and then swirled the chocolate around your mouth to get a taste for it. It reminded me of tasting coffee after testing it at my old job (as well as my current one) and it was nice. I love doing things like this!

Through talking about chocolate Jay went on to show us one of their newest chocolate inventions, the cappuccino chocolate! I ended up buying one of these, but I’ve yet to try it! I mean look at it, it looks like a cute little cappuccino drink, even has chocolate sprinkles! I think out of all the chocolates I saw and bought, this one was the most impressive out of them all. It’s just so unique, and such an awesome idea for people who love coffee flavoured chocolate, like myself.

He then went on to tell us we would be having a go at making four chocolates ourselves and went on to show us the five stages that it takes to make a truffle. Technically it should be six, but they did the first part for us by creating our little dark chocolate shells.

The first stage was to inject a gooey caramel into our truffles. It reminded me of piping buttercream on a cake, especially as we used piping bags! But this caramel was pretty damn hard, and it took a bit of time to get the hang of it. I like to think I didn’t do too badly though… It could have gone worse. It would have gone everywhere! Thank God it didn’t mind.

The second stage was to start temping the chocolate ready to use for our truffles. We got to find out how they temp their chocolate, as well as be given some hints and tips as to how we can do it ourselves at home. We of course got to have a go at doing this stage ourselves, which was pretty fun to do in teams. I worked with Laura from Fill to the Brum who was lovely! We both took it in turns to stir the chocolate and make sure it was ready to use to seal our chocolates, and cover them in gooey chocolate goodness!

That’s where the third stage comes in! Time to cover and seal our chocolates! This was a pretty simple stage where you got a little bit of the chocolate and covered the whole where you had just injected all the gooey caramel so it stays there for the next couple of stages. We left this to set for a couple of minutes and then moved onto covering the truffles in creamy chocolate.

The fourth stage was pretty straight forward… Although a tad on the messy side! We could either dunk our truffle into the chocolate, move it around a little and be done, or we could do the same process and then remove with a special dipping tool. Where it is swirly you hold the chocolate covered truffle onto this and use it to remove any leftover chocolate so it gives the finished truffle a nice smooth finish and texture. I kept dropping the first one I did this to, and I felt a tad silly due to it.

Finally we got to cover our truffles in either powdered chocolate, coconut shavings, or powdered sugar. As I’m not a fan of coconut shavings I went for the powdered chocolate and sugar! I made such a mess, which you can tell by my glove on the picture above. I felt like a little kid all over again in my cooking classes… Oh dear! I’m never usually this mucky, I promise.

 photo Photo 04-05-2016 8 07 28 pm_zpsa4cqgsss.jpg

So here are my finished chocolates! I did two with a smooth chocolate look to them, and two where I covered them in yummy powdered chocolate and sugar. The sugar one didn’t work out too great to be honest, but oh well. It’s trying that counts, isn’t it?

 photo Photo 04-05-2016 8 15 24 pm_zpsjaemgdkn.jpg

After this we popped our names on our chocolates, had another hot chocolate (this time I had cinnamon and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!), and had everything cleared away so that we could move onto the next part of the event, tasting the new Father’s Day chocolates. Man, I can’t believe Father’s Day is just a month away. SRSLY 2016 can you stop going by so quickly???

There were three chocolates we were given to try, jewellery porter, smoked bacon, and “the renaissance” single malt. That was also the order we got to try them in too. One thing about this chocolate’s were is that they all had alcohol in them. They were yummy let me tell you, and would make a great gift for someone’s father or grandfather who has a sweet tooth and loves a strong drink every now and then.

 photo Photo 04-05-2016 8 15 55 pm_zpsjmczpblg.jpg

So the first one was jewellery porter, and it was the nicest one of the bunch! It’s described as, “A collaboration of two locals! Two Towers brewery provided their famous Jewellery Porter Stout and we provided the chocolate. A rich and chocolatey caramel in a thick dark shell with a sustained happy end note.” This was my favourite as it just ticked all the boxes. It looked lovely as it wasn’t too in your face, and it tasted amazing. The caramel was really gooey, which I love with chocolates like this, and the alcohol wasn’t really strong. I know some people prefer this, but personally I’m never fussed. This was more of a chocolate I would imagine a woman to enjoy though, due to both the taste, as well as how it looked.

 photo Photo 04-05-2016 8 15 59 pm_zpsg5mkd4yf.jpg

The second was smoked bacon and whilst this wasn’t horrible, it was really weird and I’m not sure if I liked it or not… I wouldn’t chose it myself, but if someone gave it to me I would eat it. If that makes sense? Out of the three I found it was a the prettiest to look at. The description for this one was, “Bacon in a chocolate?! – You can’t do that! O’ yes we can. This caramel truffle contains actual salty bacon and a dash of laphroig single malt to give it a smokey kick start.” This was a strange chocolate… The gooey caramel was amazing, of course it was! But to then bite into and taste bacon was strange, in a somewhat nice way. I didn’t dislike it but I didn’t love it either. I can’t say I didn’t like it when I’ve eaten Marmite chocolate…😛

 photo Photo 04-05-2016 8 15 51 pm_zpsd0c0asfe.jpg

The third and final one was “the renaissance” single malt which wasn’t my favourite out of the three. It’s described as, “Recommended by the experts at Hard To Find Whisky this chocolate is made with pure Glen Garioch single malt whisky. Notes of butterscotch, ginger and orange interlaced with caramel and barley are balanced with a Belgian milk chocolate shell.” This wasn’t a horrible chocolate, but it really wasn’t my cup of tea. It was really strong due to the whisky which was off putting for myself, and to look at it, it wasn’t anything special. I don’t expect mind blowing chocolate, my reason for putting this is due to how they wanted us to rate them. I’m not THAT mean!

After the chocolate tasting was over, it was time to begin the final part of the event which was a chocolate fondue, with lots of yummy food to dunk in, as well as some prosecco to wash it down! There was lots to choose from with various fruits like banana, strawberries, and satsuma, and some naughtier choices with gingerbread men, turkish delight, doughnuts, and honeycomb. As I’m either allergic or not a fan I didn’t eat any of the fruit, so I mostly ate the naughty treats. My favourite was the doughnuts! I didn’t try the turkish delight, sadly. The honeycomb was really yummy, but it stuck to my teeth, haha!

I already had an idea what chocolates I wanted to buy, and as we were given 10% off any purchases, I decided to grab some goodies to take home with me for me and Dane to share. I’ll be doing a full review on these the weekend to be honest, but I’ll definitely show off what I picked up here.

As well as my own four chocolates I made, I also picked up cappuccino, lemon and lime, Irish cream, and sea salt caramels. As well as that due to the event being on the 4th of May, which is known as Star Wars day they made Star Wars themed chocolates! I went for a Stormtrooper, because why not?

Overall what did I think about the event and The Chocolate Quarter? I LOVED it! I had a really crap week and this was the highlight of my week. Making chocolate, and getting to find out some more in depth details and information about how chocolate is made etc is really interesting and it was so much fun. It was also great to network and talk to some lovely fellow bloggers, especially food related ones.

If you love the sound of the chocolate making then you can book a chocolate experience to have a go yourselves with a minimum of 3 people but from memory the price was £50. This would be great for team building for work, maybe if you study a food related subject at college or university then it’d be great to learn about something new! My friends want to have a go, so it might be something I look into around Christmas time, or for birthday’s.

I’ll be visited The Chocolate Quarter again as there is so much more I want to try!

A massive thanks to Suzie for once again being a total beaut for inviting me, and always being so lovely and welcoming. If you haven’t heard of her, make sure to go and check out her blog. I’ve popped the link near the start of this post.

I also want to say a huge thank you to the guys at The Chocolate Quarter for being so welcoming and friendly to all of us! You were great hosts for your event and your hot chocolate is very yummy!

I’ve had three of my friends already ask me if we can go to The Chocolate Quarter soon to go and buy some goodies, so I already know I’ll be going again very soon.

If you aren’t local to the store like I am and really want to try some of their chocolate, then don’t fret! You can go to their website and look at what they have on offer, as well as make orders. I’m going to pop all the links for The Chocolate Quarter down below for you, so don’t worry.
