Color Concept glitter eyeshadow palette Swatches + Reviews

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog! If you're new here my name is Jessica & I'm a blogger (nope not vlogger cause I'm too shy to talk on camera) haha so for now I'm here in word form only. Ohhh gosh I'm so funny. (wait... or was it cause I'm not that funny... or maybe it's a mixture of both who knows)

Anyways, today I'm going to show you my favorite glitter eyeshadow! Yay! Like, it's not too fancy, but I like them cause they get the job done. (Hope you can relate)
These glitter eyeshadow are from the brand "Color Concept"

Here's a close up of both palettes so you can see how glittery they are.

Do you see all that glitter tho. Oh my gosh ♡

Here's swatches to the first glitter palette:

Here's the second color concept glitter eyeshadow palette swatches:

REVIEW: These palettes are absolutely beautiful. As you can see both of them are extremely pigmented which is always a good thing. Who doesn't love a pigmented palette? The price is really affordable too. I believe that these palette came in a package deal. You know those package makeup deals that you get around Christmas time. The ones they sell at Walmart. Depending on which one you get the makeup package doesn't cost you like no more then $15. Fifteen dollas for a whole bundle of full sized make up? Sign me up! Like I don't like spending that much on makeup if I can look flawless for less lol.

The bad things about them is that they don't blend as nice as I would want them to blend, but I'm gonna blame it on the fact that I suck at makeup still lol. The other negative thing is that.... remember that glitter I was telling you before? Ummm yeah that gets over everywhere if you don't prime your eye. I found out that if you prime your eye with like eyeshadow primer it stays on longer, the colors seem to pop more & well the glitter falls less. (The eyeshadow primer that I use is from Hard Candy & I got it at Walmart for like $5)

Another negative is that the colors kinda look powdery like you know a bit chalky, but it looks ok on the eye

This is with the primer 

Would these be my palettes of choice when doing my makeup? No... but do they get the job done? Absolutely 

So that's it for today's blog post. I hope you enjoyed it. If you did make sure to let me know in the comments below. Also, while you're there let me know what you think of glitter eyeshadow? Do you love it? Hate it?

Top 10 saddest movies + saddest Moments

Do you ever feel sad and you watch a sad movie for the soul purpose of crying? No? just me? haha *nervous laughter*.

Yesterday, I was feeling pretty sad for no reason. You know like suddenly a wave of sadness just washed over me and I just wanted to cry. But instead of crying (well I did cry cause I had to look for the videos of these sad moments but we're just gonna pretend I didn't cry haha) I compiled a list of the top 10 movies that for sure 100% make me cry. They are in no paticular order I just wrote them down as they came to mind. So grab your tissues and let's get started....

Hachi: A Dog's Tale
Wow this movie is an absolute roller-coaster of emotions. First of all puppy Hachiko SO CUTE! The part that always gets me the most is when Hachi doesn't understand that Parker is dead and keeps waiting for him for years. The other part that gets me is when Hachi passes away.

Hachi: A Dog's Tale Sad moment

The Fox and the Hound 
I don't even have to explain what scene makes me cry cause we all know which one it is. I'm just gonna show you. And I'm warning you know bring your tissues.

The Fox and the Hound Sad Moment

Marley and Me
People who know me warned me not to watch this movie. They said "Jessica don't watch it" but what did I do, I went home and watched it. And oh boy I wish I listend. This movie made me Kim Kardashian ugly cry. The part where it gets me is when they have to put Marley down. I think this makes me think about my own dog and how she's getting older. Makes me sad just thinking that one day I'm not gonna have her anymore and it scares me.

Marley and Me sad moments 

A Dog's purpose 
I remember when I saw the trailer for this movie on tv and I kid you not I cried EVERY single time it was aired. When I finally saw the movie my heart wasn't shattered not once, not twice, but five times! YES FIVE times! In my opinion, the movie was beautifully made. Some of the parts that get me are as follows: when Ethan was going to college and he throws the football to Bailey and he gets in his car and drives off. When Bailey says something along the lines of "We're playing fetch, it's been so long since we played" I felt my heart shatter into a million pieces. Also, when Bailey is at the vet and Ethan's grandpa says that he's gonna call Ethan and then Bailey was like "Ethan's here where is he I can't smell him" and the other part when just as he (Bailey) is just about to pass away he says something along the lines of he didn't wanna leave Ethan feeling sad because his job was to always make him feel happy. I was such an emotional mess after the movie ended.

A dog's purpose sad moments 

The Fault in our stars 
This movie had so many good scenes that o don't even know which one. Some of the scenes that get me is when Hazel tells Gus she's a grenade & she doesn't want to fall in love with him cause she doesn't want to hurt him. Another favorite moment is when Hazel and Gus are having dinner and... well just see for yourself haha below are the 2 moments I was talking about...

The fault in our stars sad moments

Toy Story 2 & 3
For Toy Story 2 there's a song where Jesse is looking out the window and starts to sing about her old owner. And I don't know but that scene is so beautiful just watching how her owner grew up and Jesse was forgotten. That scene always brings me to tears. 

Toy Story 3... ohhh man I remembered seeing this in theaters and trying not to cry, but crying so hard my face felt numb. You know which scene I'm talking about... The one where Woody waves good bye to Andy. 

Toy Story 2 sad moment

Toy Story 3 sad moment

Inside Out
"Take her to the moon for me" not even gonna explain it.

Inside Out sad moment

The scene where Max goes to the coffin of his dead owner, cries & lays down next to it. Ohhh do you hear that? That's the sound of me crying like a little baby.

Max sad moment

This is in my list of THE BEST movies I've seen. It captured my cultures tradition so perfectly! Loved it. This movie reminded me of my grandma who passed away. I was like I wonder if this is what actually happens, I wonder if my grandma is reunited with her husband who died sooner then she (cancer). I guess maybe that's why I cried so much throughout the movie.

Coco sad moments

Have you seen any of these movies? If so which one was it? Also, if you enjoyed this don't & want a part 2 let me know in the comments below as well. Goodbye. Take care. Stay hydrated ♡

Help! I'm addicted to Love Island!

Love Island is a British love reality show that airs on ITV2. This show takes 12 single participants and sends them to a villa where they spent 8 weeks; to see "sparks fly" when they couple up with each other. 

Then there's this thing called recoupling... this is where they have the option to couple up with someone else or stay with their current partner. But here is the twist... NEW PEOPLE are sometimes added to the game. This sometimes leads to heartbreaks and people getting dramatic as hell. Lol! 

There's also challenges and news that are announced when the islanders get text  they have to say they "got a text" and read it outloud. 

And of course like many games people get eliminated which is unfortunate because at the end of the season which ever couple is left standing will win £50,000 which according to Google is $65,000. The host has 2 envelopes and the winning couple each choose one envelope. One envelope has £0 and the other has £50,000. The person who chooses the envelope with £50,000 gets to choose if they keep all the money or share it.

Ok so now that we're familiar with what Love Island is let's move on...

I became familiar with this shows name due to British youtubers talking about this show a lot... and I mean A LOT. So, one night I was watching youtube videos when I look on my reccomend tab and see a video called Love Island 2018 first coupling.

I saw the name and was like "hummm Love Island, I know this name... let's see what the hype about this show is" so I clicked on the video and little did I know I was hooked!!

That night I kid you not I went to sleep like at 2AM catching up on episides. Since this is a British tv show and I live in America, I couldn't see the whole show I just saw clips.

(According to some people; full episodes are available on Hulu but ya girl don't got money for Hulu)

Then when I thought my addiction couldn't get any worse, youtuber Joe Sugg was uploading videos to his gaming channel about the Love Island game. I was like "this is such an interesting game" and because he wasn't uploading long episodes I was like I NEED to find out what happens next. So, I raced to the Google Play store to see if it was there and unfortunately the app wasn't there *sad face*

Then on July 8th everything changed and I was able to download the game. 

Notice the time? You better
believe that I was watching love island
clips before I found the game 

Then I became addicted to that too but that a whole other story.

Then on July 20 aka the BEST DAY EVER not only did one of my favorite youtubers liked one of my tweet, but I found an app that allows me to watch Love Island here in America. I was so happy I nearly cried. So that day I watched my very first full episode of Love Island. 

The app I used is called "TVCatchUp" it looks like this 
This app has a bunch of British tv stations you can watch live, which is so cool! #NotSpon but I wish it was lol.

My favorite female in the start was Samira. She was my favorite because she was so awkward and didn't know how to flirt with the guys. She reminded me of myself so I guess this is why I loved her from the start. 

Later on she had to go home cause she fell in love with one of the new islanders (his name was Frankie) and since he went home she figured there was no point in her staying. 

My favorite male in the start was Alex he was so nice and respectful of all the women there it was nice seeing that. At first he was pulling the sympathy card and making everyone (viewers and islanders) feel sad that he couldn't find someone. He would say things like "I really want to find someone here" "I want a girl to come in here and like me for me not because I'm the only single one here." 

So, FINALLY here comes a girl named Alexandra.  She directly comes into the villa saying she fancies Alex. That he's "so fit." They then couple up. And as a viewer I was like "Awww finally." Then Alex unfortunately started to act like a total ass. 

Later on in the show, new people are added and Alex thought it would be a good idea to tell Alexandra that he isn't ready to be exclusive. Why? Because he wanted to get with a the new islander (her name was Laura). 

It really made me mad when Alex wanted to leave Alexandra for new Laura. Like is he blind? 

When they did the "lie detector" (notice how I put it in quotes cause I know it's absolutely fake as hell) Alex's answers to the questions Alexandra had made me so angry. Like the one where she asked if something about how if he thinks Alexandra's feelings toward him are genuine. The way he answered pissed me off so much like it's clear as day that she likes him like WTF??

After the July 26th episode, I'm so fucking angry. Ok so, Alex has been dragging Alexandra along for so many week giving her false hope and making her think he loves her. Guess what happens? He broke up with her and told her he doesn't love her. Like why WHY would you drag someone along making them think you like them. He not only waisted her time, his time, but everyone else as well. And the bitch had the NERVE to dump her right after they've been on a romantic date. He is officially CANCELLED in my book. 

When Alexandra told him he's pathetic for wasting her time (when he broke up with her) I got up my seat and clapped! I'm just really upset how Alex dragged her along making her think he loved her. 

You guys should've seen how when she was talking about him to the other girls she would talk about him with so much love in her voice and the way he talked about her with the other guys was so "cold."

I hope Alexandra can find someone who actually loves her. She's such a Queen. 

One of my other favorite females is Dani. She's so genuine and funny. She is the daughter to English actor Danny Dyer. In the villa she & her partner Jack (who is now my favorite male) are always looking out for everyone that the other islanders were calling them "parents"

Jack & Dani are so CUTE together. I wish they got their own reality show after Love Island. I would definitely watch. Also, Jack is so smart, funny and treats Dani really well.

As for their "lie detector don't even wanna start with how their "lie detector" results went. Ugh like ok... I'm a new fan of this show and I can tell you 100% that lie detector is FAKE!!! First of all I remember that when Shane Dawson made a video using a REAL lie detector guy.

The man said once you're hooked up to the machine you can't move or else it affects the results and the guys were moving! It's actually so sad that they had to make Jack and Dani fight for views.

One thing I didn't like about Jack and Dani is that when they were picking which couple to go home in July 27ths episode. They didn't want to send Alex and Alexandra home because they were their mates. Like guys! This is Love Island NOT Best Friends Island. They aren't in a couple send them home!

When they had to take care of plastic babies. Oh my gosh! It was so cute seeing everyone being parents. 

Haha and seems like Alex's job doesn't rest even when he's on love island. Here he is being a doctor to the islander's babies 

And here's the most funniest moment in my opinion... poor baby Prince getting his arm torn off 

Do you watch Love Island? If so who's your favorite & why? I'm so addicted to this show I'm definitely going to be watching the next season. Let's just say "babes I'm loyal" to the show hahaha people who watch the show will definitely get that reference. Lol

  • Hydra Zen Anti Stress Moisturizing Face Cream
  • L'Absolu Lacquer 

Review of each product:

Tonique Confort Re Hydrating Conforting Toner with Acacia Honey

REVIEW: I absolutely LOVE LOVE this toner. As soon as it came in contact with my skin I instantly felt the my skin feeling so refreshed and hydrated. The only thing I didn't like about this is that the application process is kinda messy if you don't use a cotton pad. The hole on the top is kinda big so alot of product comes out if you're not careful. This is definitely something I'm going to continue using; especially during the fall & winter times. 

Lancôme says: 
"Our miracle toner: a silky soft moisturizing toner that gently purifies and immediately rehydrates completion. Full of active ingredients to nourish your skin and deliver deep hydration: calming rose water, plumping hyaluronic acid, and soothing acacia honey. Use twice a day after cleansing. Great for sensitive skin"
Rate: 9.6/10

Hydra Zen Anti Stress Moisturizing Face Cream

REVIEW: This has to be THE BEST moisturizing cream I have ever tried. You know how sometimes some moisturizing creams leave your face feeling oily, kinda gross and kind of sticky? This is definitely NOT the case with this one. As soon as you apply it on your face it absorbs into your skin almost instantly. My skin instantly felt clean & very hydrated. I will say this if you aren't a fan of moisturizers with sents then this definitely isn't for you because this moisturizer has a light sent. In my opinion its not that strong, but I did see some people express how they didn't like the sent in the reviews on Sephora's website. Oh well we're all different right. That's what makes us unique. But I will definitely be buying this as soon as this one is finished. 

Below are pictures of how the product looks on the inside.

Lancôme says:
"Rose powered hydration: intense 24hr hydration in a light gel texture, rose infused and oil free. Recharge and replenish your skin by giving it the moisture boost it needs. *Use every morning after applying Tonique Confort"
Rate: 10/10

L'Absolu Lacquer

REVIEW: There are so many positive things about this that I don't even know where to start. First of all I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it's extremely pigmented. One coat of it & you'll definitely see the color right away. I also love how you can keep coating it to get an even deeper color then the original shade. So it's like 3 lippies in 1. I know you're probably thinking that the price is a little too expensive for your pocket but this is absolutely a must have in your makeup Collection! It doesn't leave your lips feeling dry nor sticky like most other brands do. This leaves your lips feeling hydrated & fabulous! And wait! I haven't even gotten to the best part. It doesn't come off that easy with water. I discovered this when I was drinking water and noticed that it didn't come off that easy. I was in absolute shock. Love that I didn't have to reapply hours later. 

Below are some more pictures of the product along with what I was saying when I was talking about the "coats"

This is the color I got

Do you guys notice how the color keeps getting darker as I applied more coats. This is so cool!

If you don't see the color gradually getting darker from the swatches I provided; here's some that came in the voxbox...

Lancôme says: 
"This new brilliant lip lacquer combines the comfort and shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick and the lasting power of a stain. The high shine finish and vivid color payoff are buildable from sheer to full coverage in 1-2-3 coats"
 Rate: 10/10

*If you don't have money to buy the toner & the moisture don't worry. I felt like I didn't notice that huge of a difference when I used the toner & moisturizer vs when I just used the moisturizer alone :)

Thank you so much to influenster & Lancôme for sending me these products for FREE in exchange for my honest review.
