Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks in Celebrity Skin & 714

Hey guys! I ended up liking the formula of my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Blue Velvet so much that I decided to add two more shades to my collection, 714 and Celebrity Skin. I’m just going to gloss over the formula here since I’ve already done a more in depth review of Blue Velvet. If you want to see my review of Blue Velvet (and the Jeffree Star Extreme Beauty Tour deets) you can check it out here!

Let’s star with the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in 714! 714 is an absurdly gorgeous pinkish coral shade that doesn’t really resemble any other shades in my stash. I think it’s a really unique color and am 100% in love with this shade! I did find that it applied  a tiny bit patchy at first but I just let it dry, applied another thin coat and it was perfect.

714 is what dreams are made of!

4th of July Makeup!

Happy Independence Day to all of my fellow American’s out there!

I just wanted to take a minute to share my 4th of July face with all of you today! I decided to take the red, white & blue route but blue eyeshadow & red lipstick together is a real fine line. In an attempt not to look like an 80’s high school tragedy, I decided to darken up the colors a little by adding neutrals to my blue eyeshadow and choosing a darker red lip.

On my eyes, I’m using my Morphe 35U & 35S palettes, Glitter Injections Out Of This World glitter & Creme 102 lashes.

I’m also wearing one of my favorite drug store lipstick formulas, NYX Matte Lipstick in Alabama.

My brows are Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown & Clear Gel.

Also my cute little ring here is the Sophie Harper Pavé X Ring in Silver from Rocksbox! Rocksbox is a designer jewelry subscription box where they send you 3 pieces of jewelry (valued at ~$200) at a time. You can keep it for as long as you like and when you’re done, just send it back and you’ll have three new pieces on the way! You get one piece from your wishlist each month and then they choose two other pieces to suit your style. I think they did a really job awesome at picking out my box & I’m really excited to see what I get next! 🙂

It’s $19 a month after the first month but you also get $10 of that back in Shine Spend each month to put towards the purchase of a piece if you fall in love with one of the items in your box that month!

Use code “suburbiamakeupxoxo” for your first month of Rocksbox free!

Creme Lashes – The Frugal Way to do Falsies!

I’m not sure how many of you have heard me preach the wonders of Creme false eyelashes yet but for those of you who haven’t, listen up! 😛

Creme 102 lashes

Even if you haven’t heard of Creme lashes, you still may have heard of Red Cherry lashes. Red Cherry lashes are pretty popular, mostly because they make nice lashes for a really low price.

A couple of years ago, when I was still trying to figure out the ropes of lashes, I decided to order a few packs of some random Asian branded lashes on Amazon. They were like $2 for 20 pairs of falsies and I figured they would be great to practice with! No. No, no, no.

Each style of those crazy cheap lashes were literally useless. One band was impossibly thick and stiff, another style had a weird hollow band that didn’t hold glue well and, believe it or not, one of them actually had a WHITE band! Who would make a white eyelash band? I tried coloring over them with eyeliner before just giving up on the lot completely.

And then I discovered Creme lashes.

Blog Parade! Theme: Green Summer!

Hi, loves! A couple of weeks ago I was approached & asked to participate in this months German/American Blog Parade hosted by the lovely Isabell of Morgan LeFlay Beauty! The Blog Parade is basically several German and American bloggers coming together to collaborate on a makeup theme and share some love!

Green Glittery Eyeshadow

June’s theme is Green Summer! Have I ever mentioned that green is my least favorite color? Because it is. 😛 Despite me having a weird relationship with the color green, I figured this would be a great opportunity to push myself to do something that I normally wouldn’t so I was actually kind of jazzed about the theme once I got to thinking about it.

So I present to you, green glitter halo eyes!

Jeffree Star’s Liquid Lipstick in Blue Velvet and Extreme Beauty Tour Update!

So as some of you probably know, I recently went to the Jeffree Star Extreme Beauty Tour in Detroit and as promised, I’m back with an update!

I’ve got to start off by saying it was an all around amazing experience from start to finish! We had some extra time to kill in Detroit so we went out for delicious food and drinks, did a little sight seeing and even found an amazing little “beach” area downtown! Now we all know Detroit has a pretty bad rep and I only stayed in one specific area of the city the whole time but I loved what I saw! Cute and delicious restaurants and bars around every corner, the area was super clean and beautiful and seriously like every single person we spoke to was incredibly & unusually nice!

So let’s get on to the class!

Jeffree Star’s Extreme Beauty Tour

Jeffree himself was super amazing! He was so friendly, chatty and personable, encouraged us all to ask him questions or offer each other suggestions, answered each question someone had, and did a great job at not only explaining each step he was doing on the model but also the products he was using and why he was using each product for each specific step. He also gave suggestions personalized product suggestions to people throughout the whole class. All in all, very informative!

It was a 4 hour class with a break 2 hours in with snacks and refreshments. The class was pretty small, probably 30-40 people so it was really intimate and nice. Jeffree did a full face demo on his model including her base, eyes, lashes, lips, contouring, the whole shebang! He even made her cry glitter. 😛
