Koko Kollection Review

Hello everybody, today I will be reviewing the first ever Kylie Cosmetic’s collaboration. When Kylie Jenner first announced she would be doing a collaboration collection for her cosmetics line I was really hoping for her to team up with another big name in the makeup industry, so when she announced it was her sister Khloe Kardashian, I was a little bummed. With that being said though, I ended up totally loving this collection. With Khloe and Kylie being my favorite people in their celebirty filled family, I really think this “Kollection” really represents them both well.

This collection comes with 3 matte liquid lipsticks in the shades Okurrr, Khlo$, and Gorg. It also comes with 1 gloss in the shade Damn Gina. This set comes in the prettiest packaging, it is an all white and rose gold box with nice, pretty, cursive font. Of course the set name is “Koko Kollection”. The packaging of the actual product tubes have similiar design to the typical Kylie Cosmetics products but these are all completely rose gold with “KOKO” on the front. They are so pretty and glam just like Khloe can be. This set is sold all together for $40, which is an amazing price due to the fact that all seperate they would cost about $66. Currently these are sold out on the Kylie Cosmetics site and she has said they were limited edition…but with that being said, Kylie in the past has brought back all of her limited edition items, multiple times, so I wouldn’t be surpised if we saw these on the market again some time.

Now I want to talk about the actual products themselves. I find these to have the same great quality as the other original Kylie Cosmetics products. I love her liquid lipstick formula, it lasts for hours, and I mean like 8+ hours. They are transfer proof and just such amazing quality. I also really love her gloss, I do try and apply it lightly because a little goes a long way. I have reviewed Kylie products in pasts posts like this one here Makeup Haul/Review ft. Kylie Cosmetics & Jeffree Star and this one as well What’s in my bag: Lip Edition . The shades below top to bottom are Damn Gina, Khlo$, Gorg, and Okurrr.

Some specific things about this set that I was concerned with and wanted to mention was that I thought Gorg could possibly be a little patchy because I have heard similiar reviews on her shade Kourt K, and they are similiar in color. Although with Gorg, I have not noticed a problem with patchiness. I have always worn a berry lip liner underneath and I have loved this shade so far. It is a very pretty berry fall shade. The other shade I was concerned with was Okurrr. I think in swatches and photos I see on social media, the shade looks very bright pink and really vibrant and out there. I wasn’t sure if I would get much use out of this shade, but I have noticed in person that it is actually a lot more toned down. It is a very pretty pink but the brightness isn’t as crazy as I expected, I think this is a very pretty spring shade and I don’t own any color like this.

Overall I am very happy with this set. I love the Kardashian and Jenner girls, and I really love Kylie Cosmetics. Their products have yet to dissappoint me, and my collection seems to be growing bigger and bigger. If you’re interested in me trying to find dupes for these colors, let me know in the comments below and I can definitely work on it. Until next time, thanks for reading.

 

Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales

Hello everybody, and a late Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for every person who takes the time to read my blog. I know this is a little last minute but I really wanted to get up a Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales post for you all. So this is a round-up of some of my favorite sales happening this weekend.

The first sale I want to talk about isn’t as much of a sale as it is a special offer. Kylie Cosmetics on Black Friday will be doing a free holiday stocking for purchases over $100. Now, I am not a fan of the fact that you have to spend $100 but it is easy to spend on Kylie products, and the stocking is SO cute. She also restocked her holiday edition collection but for those products you have to be quick! One deal that she is offering that I love is that with certain Lip Kit shades (Candy K, Koko K, Posie K, and Exposed) she is offering a free matching gloss with purchase. For Cyber Monday she will be launching her brand new eye brush collection for only $35. Don’t forget that Kylie Cosmetics now offers free domestic shipping on orders over $40, and international shipping for orders over $60.

Now for my favorite actual sale, it will have to be Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is offering a huge sale on her official website only.  Click here to head to the website. Sale prices range from 10-60% off! I made a purchase and received 20% off Stick Foundation, 40% off Cream Contour Kit, 60% off Eye Shadow Singles, and 60% off Contour Refills. They also have 50% off Concealer, 30% off Lip Gloss and much more. Also, their new Pro Brushes were released and are 25% off as well. This sale is happening throughout the weekend and Cyber Monday. Anastasia Beverly Hills is an awesome brand with amazing quality, and I highly suggest taking advantage of this sale while you can.

Also, another favorite sale of mine is that Thursday and Friday Old Navy will be 50% off storewide. Saturday will be 40% off, with Sunday being 30% off and Cyber Monday they will have their website sale at 30% off sitewide. I wear some clothing from Old Navy but I think this is an awesome family deal, also if you have young children Carter’s is offering 60% off storewide and sitewide Friday only, but that is an amazing sale as well.

Some sales I want to mention are BOGO sales. Buy one get one free are always the best kind of sales to me, I love them. This year Target did BOGO for all jar candles, and all picture frames and photo albums. Now is definitely the time to stock up on those things, and this sale is Friday only so you have to move fast. It is definitely worth the trip down to your local Target to check out what they have left. Another awesome BOGO sale is on the Glamglow site, Glamglow is a little on the pricey side but if you use code BOGO2016 this weekend when purchasing a full-size product, you get an additional one for free. It has to be the same exact product, though. For Glamglow, that is a great value.

The final deal I wanted to mention is that Charlotte Russe has everything for $20 or less, in-store and online, as well as free shipping. That is a dangerously awesome sale. So those are all my favorite sales of this weekend. I wanted to just get this up for you guys even though it is last minute, hopefully, you can all snag some awesome sales. Holiday season is keeping me busy in my personal life and work life, but I will be spending the next 3 days working on blog posts for you all. I hope you have an awesome Holiday weekend!

Bite Beauty’s Matte Creme Lip Crayon Review

Hello everybody and happy Monday. I am getting this up a little later than I wanted, so a majority of you are probably just about done with your day now and in for the night. So, I hope you all had an awesome start to your week. This post is going to be a review of the new Matte Creme Lip Crayons by Bite Beauty. Bite Beauty and Influenster were kind enough to send me these lipsticks to review for you all. Although these products were sent to me, I will keep my reviews 100% honest. Let’s get started.

img_5886

I just want to start off by saying that these retail at Sephora for $24 a piece, and I received 3 shades, Cava, Glace, and Red Velvet. I have bought Bite Beauty lipsticks in the past myself, I believe I have 1 regular Bite lipstick from them, and then I have 2 of their duo-ended lipsticks as well. I really enjoy Bite Beauty products, I have found them to be very creamy products, that never dry out my lips, and they also last a good amount of time throughout the day, especially for not being a liquid lipstick. I really love the packaging on these Matte Creme Lip Crayons. They are a soft matte black, and they are just perfect for throwing in your bag and taking on the go. You twist the pen to make the product come out more, and then there is also a little sharpener on the bottom that you can pop out to sharpen the crayon as well. I really like the fact that it comes with a sharpener because lip crayons can get pretty dull and messy.

Now for the actual quality of the Matte Creme Lip Crayons. I think that these are really good products, just like other Bite Beauty products I have tried. They are a nice creamy texture, but they are still matte. They don’t make my lips look as dry as other matte lipsticks can do sometimes. They are not 100% transfer proof but if you are careful they last throughout the day quite well. I always keep the shade I am wearing with me, especially if I am eating, to do some touch ups. I wore the shade “Glace” out to go shopping the other day, and I wore it for 4-5 hours with no touch ups. It lasted pretty well and still looked nice at the end. “Red Velvet” is also a nice deep red shade, that I would suggest pairing with a red liner to make sure it doesn’t get too messy. I also got the shade “Cava” which is a new shade, and available online only but I also really enjoy this shade, it is a nice soft nude that looks pretty on a lot of different skin tones.

For the price tag of $24, these are a little pricey, but they are nice products so I suggest trying them out if you are somebody who likes to have a variety of lipsticks. I find these similar in quality to Mac lipsticks other than the packaging. I really do enjoy the packaging of these Matte Creme Lip Crayons so I would spend the $24 to purchase these on my own. I also think these could be a great idea as a stocking stuffer as well.

That is it today for my review, so if you haven’t checked out Bite Beauty products before I do recommend them, especially for lipstick lovers. You can find their social media, their handle is @bitebeauty on all social media, or also bitebeauty.com is their website. I also just wanted to let you all know that I have officially hit 500 followers on my Twitter (@corinnascornerx) so if you aren’t already you should go follow me, I will be posting a giveaway this week to say thank you for 500. I have a few posts coming, I am not sure what will be up first but I am thinking my next post will be a review of the new Koko Kollection by Kylie Cosmetics in collaboration with Khloe Kardashian. Thank you all for reading, and have an awesome week.

Makeup Haul/Review ft. Kylie Cosmetics & Jeffree Star

Hello everybody and Happy Friday! I can not believe we are down to our last 2 months of 2016. This year has flown by so quickly for me, but it has been an awesome year. I hope everyone else has had a great year, and we can all end it good as well. This post is getting up a little later than I wanted, and it is a fun makeup haul and some reviews, so let’s get started.

So the first product I want to talk to you all about is something I have been wanting to try out for a while. Cosmetic glitters! I am a part of a wonderful makeup group on Facebook and a lot of the girls on there (and boys) are very talented at makeup, and will do some really awesome looks with glitters. So I asked around and it seemed like a lot of them were using cosmetic glitter from bulkglitters.com as well as using Too Faced’s glitter glue. I have yet to get glitter glue, so I have not been able to wear my glitters in a look yet, but I do have some opinions on them. First, the price is awesome. I got these jars for $1.25 each, and they seem to have enough to last me a very very long time. They have varying sizes, so they even have a smaller jar for $1, and then they have bigger and bigger sizes as well. I thought $1.25 was an awesome price, especially for my first time trying glitters so I went with that. I got 8 different shades, Golden Eye, Star Struck Silver, Mint Julip, Emerald Earth, Slinky Silver, Springtime Blue, Bubblegum, and what appears to be my favorite shade of them all Black Copper Mine. The other thing I noticed about these are that they have different types of glitter, I got 7 different “ultra fine” ones, and then one “fine” glitter. I definitely recommend the “ultra fine” ones, simply because when I am looking at the “fine” one I got which is in Star Struck Silver, I can tell that the glitter specks look a lot bigger, and to me I think I prefer the smaller pieces of glitter. Overall though I am really excited to try them out and if you have any tips on using cosmetic glitters I would love to hear about them in the comments below.

Another brand I finally got to try out that I have been wanting to try is Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I know Jeffree Star can be a controversial in the makeup community but I still have heard awesome things about his products, so when he offered free shipping for 24 hours, I knew it was time to try it out. I was really just interested in trying out his Velour Liquid Lipstick formula, so I just ordered one liquid lipstick in the shade “Abused”. I got this shade which is a dark purple-ish black shade because with Halloween just passing I realized I have really never tried a really dark shade before so I figured I could try 2 new things at once. So I just received this yesterday and I have not gotten to wear it out yet, but I did try it on and I noticed 2 things about it. First, I am not sure this dark of a shade works well on me, and second, to me it had a very odd scent. I know Jeffree has some products with scents but I wasn’t sure this was one of them, but to me it almost smells like a strong root beer scent. It was such a strong scent, it made me feel like my lips were tingling. I really wanted to like this formula though, so I will definitely have to give it another try. I’d love to try his highlighters as well.

I also received 2 new liquid lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics. I have used Kylie Cosmetics before and I love their Lipkits. I think their lip liners are the best lip liners on the market, in my opinion, they are extremely pigmented, creamy, and long lasting. I also have yet to find a liquid lipstick that is as long lasting as hers. I have worn Mary Jo K for 8 hours once with no touch ups. I also own her 3 original gloss shades, which I love. So when I found out on Halloween that she was giving away a free KyMajesty metallic liquid lipstick with every order, I decided to get a new shade of liquid lipstick, so I could also receive KyMajesty and try out her metallic lipsticks. First, let me say that the new matte liquid lipstick shade I bought is “Ginger” and I absolutely love it, it is a beautiful nude, slightly brown, slightly orange shade. Now for KyMajesty. I think it is definitely a unique shade to have, although I am not 100% sure on how I am going to wear it yet. I do think that it almost has a slightly blue tint to the color, which doesn’t bother me but I did originally think it would be more black. The only other thing I can say about KyMajesty and her metallic liquid lipsticks so far is that I thought the formula was a little more clumpy then the matte liquid lipstick ones, and it was just a little more messy to work with. For free, I am very happy with this KyMajesty, if I was actually paying for and purchasing a metallic liquid lipstick from Kylie Cosmetics, I would probably go for a different shade. Overall though, this was not a bad product.

Then finally I just wanted to quickly mention some Dollar Tree products that I tried out. I think I mentioned I bought these a while back to you guys, but I finally got around to opening them and testing them out and thought I would let you know what I think. Remember I bought these at Dollar Tree so they only cost me $1 a piece, which is not bad at all, can’t find anything cheaper. So I will start off by saying the L.A. Colors shimmering loose eyeshadow was a complete waste. I am not even going to discuss this product anymore because there is nothing to discuss. With the Elf smudge pot I got the shade “Poppin Party” and I think this is really creamy, and I love the formula but I was expecting a purple shade and it was much more of like a muddy dark gray or black to me. I would definitely like to try more shades though, for $1 it is very worth it. Then the Wet N Wild eyeshadow in the shade “Creme Brulee” is awesome! This is so pigmented and it is a great base shade, or priming shade for your lid before you use other shadow colors. I will definitely be picking more of these up because I think the product was great, especially for being only $1.
