A month or so ago, I wrote an article about the difference between Colour Pop and Kylie Cosmetics. At the end of the article I said that I wanted to try Jeffree Star Cosmetics to see if there was a difference between the three. During Christmas I was fortunate enough to receive two Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. Here is my first impression of the lipsticks.

My first impression of the packaging was that I loved it! The lipsticks came in a pink box, and on the inside the lipsticks were wrapped in Jeffree Star tissue paper with holiday colors. In the box were the two lipsticks, and a laminated piece of paper with swatches of all the lipsticks in the holiday collection. I was so excited to try them on.

I asked for a lip color called Deceased. The picture above is what the color looks like, The first thing I noticed right away when I applied the lipstick, was how smooth it was. I didn't need to apply a lot and it was very pigmented and not streaky. Sometimes with Kylie products, the darker shades tend to be a little streaky where in some parts the color is darker on your lips than others. With this product it wasn't like that at all.

The lipstick dried quickly, but did not make my lips feel dry at all. I was pleasantly surprised because although I do love Kylie's products, sometimes my lips do dry out fast. Another great thing about the liquid lipsticks is the price of them. Then liquid lipsticks are 18 dollars. Kylie's matte singles are about the same, but not all of her lipcolors are sold separately. Each Kylie Lip Kit comes with a liquid lipstick and a lip liner. Jeffree's shipping rates are also cheaper than Kylie's.

Overall I loved Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipstick. I would recommend this brand to anyone that likes bold colors and also to people who are looking for a product cheaper than Kylie's but still has a really good quality. I still love Kylie Cosmetics of course, but I also like to keep my different options open. Jeffree Star has some colors that are somewhat like some of Kylie's colors.They are both really great indie makeup companies.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Tips And Tricks For Thrifting For Clothes

Thrifting: cheap and cool

141
views

Goodwill, Savers, Salvation Army; thrifting for clothes is a great way to find cute looks on a college budget. Not only are things cheap, but you can also find things that are unique and one of a kind.

1. Hand sanitizer or gloves

Before you leave for your thrifting adventure, make sure you bring hand sanitizer or gloves! Clothes are usually not washed or not washed thoroughly before being put out on the rack, so it's a good idea to ensure your hands are clean after you dig through the piles of clothes.

2. Dress to try things on over it

If you're planning on trying on clothes before you buy, consider wearing leggings, a tank top, or a zip-up hoodie. When you find something you like, it's easy to slip a pair of pants on over your leggings or throw a jacket on over your tank top. This way, you won't get dirty from the clothes, as well.

3. Check clothes thoroughly for rips, tears, or stains

When you find an article of clothes, keep in mind it likely has a few blemishes. Check everywhere for torn seams, rips or holes, or stains. If there are, be sure you're ok with it the imperfections before you commit to buying it.

4. Considering altering clothes to look better

If you find something that has imperfections or just isn't quite your style, consider channeling your creativity and altering it! You can try to cut, sew, or paint to individualize your clothes and improving it. My personal favorite is cropping baggy, size XL shirts.

5. Visit often

Thrift shops will restock often with new things that people will snatch up, so be sure you frequently check. Find out when your favorite thrift store restocks so you'll be there when they cycle new items onto the shelves.

6. Reselling Apps

Consider buying from reselling apps such as Depop or Poshmark. Even though they are marked up higher, sellers on these apps have already done the searching in thrift stores for you. Even though you don't get the hunt, it's quick and easy to search for exactly what you want.
