Jeffree Star x Manny MUA – Skin Frost – Eclipse

A beautiful rose gold tinted highlight!

This is my first ever Skin Frost and I fell in love with Jeffree’s collab with Manny MUA so had to grab this bad boy! The packaging is black and holographic, compared to the usual Jeffree Star pink packaging – and it’s absolutely stunning!

The highlighter is extremely powerful, and a little goes a long way. One thing I’m not too keen on is the size of the glitter – it is a tad on the chunky side – but the highlight powder itself is very fine allowing a build-able glow!

One thing I can’t get over is the size! Its £25 for this massive pan and I’m totally in shock – I wasn’t expecting to have this much product from a premium brand for this price! It is an investment and a half!

It has totally opened my eyes to the amazing Skin Frost collection which I’m sure will become a staple in my travel bag.

Bottom Line: There is a reason why Jeffree Star has such a large cult following – and it’s because of these unbelievable products. Also they’re vegan!

Price: £25.50 @ BeautyBay.com
They currently have a 3 for 2 on Jeffree Star at the moment!

Jeffree Star – Velour Liquid Lipstick – Androgyny

FullSizeRender_1(7)

A luxuriously creamy, long lasting liquid lipstick that packs a punch of colour!

This is my first dabble in the art of Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and wow and I hooked. I’ve been a fan of Jeffree Star’s cosmetics since the MySpace days (really showing my age now…) and after seeing the numerous swatches of the shade Androgyny, I decided to take the plunge.

My first impressions of this lipstick is that the packaging is amazingly cute. It’s a lot smaller than I imagined, for some reason I heard that the lipsticks were chunky, that is not the case!

My first impression turned sour when I first applied this lipstick, as I was a bit annoyed at how patchy it was. It’s £16 a pop, it shouldn’t deliver so poorly for a premium product! It couldn’t deliver the same bold colour consistently across my lips and kept leaving parts watery. Turns out in my haste to try it, I didn’t read the packaging – you got to shake it for 5 seconds to mix it again as it settles and separates.

After doing the “shake for 5 seconds“, I tried again – A LOT BETTER! This time it felt like it was properly mixed, and delivered bold colour in every stroke. So remember guys – shake it like a Polaroid picture!

I let this bad boy dry for about five minutes before putting it to the test – I ate my dinner, drank a whole lot of water (without a straw), and it held remarkably well. It did leave my lips in the centre, but the edges stayed neat – no smudging to turn me into the Joker.

One bad thing was that it felt sticky for a while after application, which I’ve noticed with my Nyx Liquid Cream lipsticks. On reapplication it didn’t build up and go flaky – it still went on smoothly and didn’t clump.

Bottom Line: There is a reason why Jeffree Star has such a large cult following – and it’s because of these unbelievable products. Also they’re vegan!
