FIERCE MAGENTA Cosmetics review: “Turquoise Dream” and “Electra” lip colors

Fierce Magenta is an indie vegan make up brand that’s been on Etsy for some time. Since they’re still kinda underground, I was a little nervous purchasing from them ONLY because their colors looked too cool and unique to be actually true. It’s complicated finding truly unique lip colors and this brand has tons and tons of them I never thought could work. I bought two colors, Turquoise Dream and Electra.

Turquoise dream is a bright metallic blue. Here’s a photo from FM’s site.

The lightening in my photo isn’t great, but I can say that the color actually stayed true to the photo that was advertised. It’s perfect.

The next color is Electra. Here’s the photos from FM’s site.

 It’s described as black with plum and turquoise undertones. The lightening in the top photo makes it look a bit different then what it looked like when I put it on, which looked more like the bottom photo. Though this is a kind of color that changes colors depending on the angle and lightening. Still, it’s a great look.
Here’s my photos.

It’s hard capturing the really nice bits of gold/blue glitter that are in it. One day I’ll get better photos of it.

The lip sticks/glosses are about $9.69 a piece. These glosses come off very easily unless you use some lip liner and a lipstick underneath to help make it stick. Even when they do fade, they fade into cool colors so it doesn’t look so bad. They come in simple tubes with a Fierce Magenta sticker on it, nothing special. Oh, and they ship very fast. The products came in like two days.  I’ll definitely buy from them again since their colors are phenomenal.

Here’s their Etsy store.

SBS Anime Festival/Night Fever King 1 year anniversary!!!!

A few days ago on July 11th I went to a small anime/pop culture con in northern Louisiana. It was held in the same place at the Louisiana Comic Con back in February. I also celebrated the one year anniversary of Night Fever King!

Surprisingly, the event wasn’t promoted much. The turnout was smaller than I expected and not many people dressed up.:( I had a cosplay idea but due to last minute mess I wasn’t able to dress up with the idea I had in mind, but there’s another con in August/September I’ll be sure to go all out for. Since there wasn’t a lot of people I made sure to get a few photos of the people that did dress up and some of the vendors I liked.

There were LOTS of cool Japanese pop culture stuff I wanted to buy.

One of my absolute favorite vendors was the art of Jessica Von Braun. Her whimsical and dark art was great inspiration to me.

I bought a necklace of one of her prints. Right below.

Her etsy is right here!

Even more cute stuff I wanted to buy. Dammit.

More interesting cosplays.

Another cool place I stopped by was Witch Hazel, which sell witchcraft supplies and tarot readings. It’s nice to see other witches in my area.

Unfortunately, this was all I was able to capture but like I mentioned earlier there will be more cons within the next month or two!

I leave you all with this photo of my friends Sierra and Ariel dressed up as generic anime girl protagonists.

Oh wait I almost forgot! I want to say a BIG thanks to everyone who has supported Night Fever King in its first year. I know my blog is still amateurish but at least I have a year of experience behind me now. In just a year of doing this I’ve interviewed authors, indie film directors, models, artists, fashion and blogging icons and more. I wrote for a couple magazines and attended some cool events that I could share with everyone. I wonder how my second year of running this blog will work out, hopefully things will get even better. Again, thanks to everyone for being patient and supportive. As always, stay groovy.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics review of the new lipstick color ABUSED

unnamed

This shade recently came out a couple weeks ago and it already has sparked up much controversy because of the name “Abused.” Jeffree Star stated that the name inspiration came from his love of Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” Its color is described as a blue bruise-like color with slight purple undertones. Personally, I don’t find it to be an issue since it’s just a name. It’s a beautiful color and I can’t wait to wear it out often.

Packaging and shipping:

I was disappointed with the shipping. I ordered it over a week ago and the shipping kept getting delayed a few days, but I’m an impatient person. At least it got here! It came wrapped in cool blue wrapping paper.

Each packaging comes with a small poster advertising another Jeffree Star lipstick. The lipstick comes in a bright blue case.

Quality: 

Man, this is some good shit. The lipstick applied smoothly and the color was true to the photos. I also tested it to see how well does it actually stay on and it stays on so well that it’s a pain in the ass to get it off, but I like that. Who wants a lipstick that comes off just from talking after 30 minutes or getting a drink?

It dries in about thirty seconds. This was my first time dealing with liquid lipstick so it took me a little while to apply it properly.

These photos are after I went back over and smoothed the edges.

Jeffree Star’s lipsticks are pricey ($18 plus shipping for me made it about $23) but I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews that turned out to be true when I got this so if you have extra money definitely give it a try. I think it’s worth it.

Have any of you tried out Jeffree Star Cosmetics yet?
