Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette

Jaclyn Hill X Morphe
Last week I had a belated birthday celebration with my girls, and one of their gifts to me was the Jaclyn Hill palette. I wish someone had filmed my reaction to me opening this, I was in absolute shock. My girlfriends had said that they had gone in a joint gift and I had no idea what to expect. All I can say is that I was not expecting this. I have wanted this palette for so long but I'm not the most comfortable purchasing things from overseas and when it was finally available in the UK (via Beauty Bay) I was broke (typical Sod's law).

This palette has been one of the most talked about collaborations in the beauty community, both good and bad. It had so much hype around it and very mixed reviews. But even with the bad reviews I still was eager to try it myself and I was finally able to. So if you wanna hear my thoughts on the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette keep on reading.

Well long time no blog. It has been a while since I've been on here, for those of you that still come and check out the blog even without up to date content...THANK YOU!

So Taraji P. Henson aka Ms Cookie Lyon, is someone who has been doing her thing for a long time. But in recent years has been slaying the game, and I couldn't have been happier when I saw that she was gonna be launching again with MAC Cosmetics, this time with Viva Glam.

I have never purchased a MAC collection...not through lack of wanting but due to lack of funds. When I found out that fans had started a petition for MAC to create a Selena line I was HELLA EXCITED! And when the petition had proven fruitful I was like, regardless of my financial situation I was gonna save up and buy the collection. I sat in anticipation watching all the bloggers attend the Selena release in Corpus Christi, just waiting for the collection to make its way to England. You would not believe how fast I ran to my laptop and got my hands on some goodies.

If you know me, then you know how much I love Selena. I came across her because of the Selena movie (one of my faves btw), after seeing how she was portrayed and hearing her songs I was HOOKED! She seemed like such an amazing person with a kind soul. You could only imagine how sad I was at the end of the the film, to not only see her die but to know it was based on a REAL person. I think if she was still alive today that she would've been very successful.
