Product Review: Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Mint Condition!

Hey Guys,

I’m so excited to be back and I have some great posts lined up for you guys in the near future. Just to update you I have now finished my undergraduate degree and I am fully flexible to focus on this blog in the Summer so I am super happy!

I thought I would kick this off by reviewing one of my favourite presents from my birthday in April which was this gorgeous highlighter by Jeffree Star Cosmetics that my best friend nicely gave to me.  The colour is called Mint Condition and is available on Beauty Bay here.  The packaging for this product I think is very high quality it definitely is iconic with the bright pink colour. The price is quite reasonable for a mid-range brand I would say (not quite high end but not drugstore) as the highlight is £25.50 but for the size of the pan, which is probably bigger than my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and that’s quite big so you get your money’s worth. It also has a huge high quality mirror which I absolutely love for using in my make-up bag it’s just right.

I know that the colour looks a bit daunting if you haven’t used this type of highlighter before but I have to tell you it’s absolutely stunning. I did do a swatch for you guys on my hand and that is just from dipping my finger in very lightly as I really don’t want to ruin the pattern in the pan (typical me). I found the swatch to be beautiful but not half as intimidating as what you probably first thought.

You can use this product sparingly to give a beautiful glow or go all out which is what I did in one of the pictures today just to show you how gorgeous it is on. As you can probably see the green is not really that visible, in real life it only reflects green in the light so I feel like this is a really wearable product. The undertones look sort of champagne colour when it is on the skin so I feel this would suit a lot of skin tones and I can’t wait to try this colour in the summer! Also, I have tried it using my finger as an eye shadow for the centre of the lid and it is so pretty too.

I feel like this product is best using a fan brush which is what I used as using a finger to apply would leave quite a green colour but using a fan brush or blending brush just to blend it nicely onto the cheeks was stunning. This product has officially kicked off my highlighter addiction and I now want hundreds more!

Overall I would highly recommend this product and would love to get the Manny MUA collab one that is also on Beauty Bay and looks super nice!

Hope you enjoyed this post and I’m looking forward to posting a lot more regularly than before.

Thanks for Reading

Review: Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick Doll Parts!

Hey Guys,

So this is an exciting post I’ve been waiting to do for a while now, my best friend went to America and got the chance to go to warped tour one of the days Jeffree Star was there. I obviously begged her to get me a liquid lipstick and she was kind enough to do that for me.  I asked for any sort of colour, maybe a nude but they were out of pretty much all the new stuff so she was able to get me Doll Parts. I have to say from looking at the reviews and pictures after she bought it and wasn’t here yet, I was expecting a very bright pink and was a bit scared. When I eventually saw it I was actually very pleased to see that its actually more of a dark purple toned pink colour. It’s really a beautiful shade and I thought I better be able to make this work!

Packaging

I’ve got to say the packaging was a little simple and flimpsy. The cardboard has not held up well and it’s only been in cases and a bag but all the pink is coming away already! Their delivery must move them very carefully! Other than that it’s what I was expecting, the bottle is super pretty and is about the size of a normal lipstick without the lid on top.

Applicator

I’ve got to say this is my favourite thing about this lipstick, the applicator is the best I’ve seen. Its such a nice round shape and a small little thing that makes application super easy without a lip liner! Definitely a plus if you have small lips like I do!

The Colour/Swatch 

I did put it on my lips but it was an awful picture so I thought I’d do a big swatch. I have to say it didn’t dry very quickly on my hands but it did on my lips. The colour is this beautiful dark pink that I’m really struggling to pull off but hopefully I will find some way of doing it.

Did it meet my expectations? 

I’ve got to say I haven’t had many liquid lipsticks only the sleek ones but I have had a lot of matte lipsticks in general. From watching Jeffree Stars videos and seeing how much he criticises other brands for how “transferable” their product is and how “drying” they are. I have to say this lipstick was way more transferable and drying than any other matte product ever. My lips felt so sore half way through the day I had to get a lip balm. I know liquid lipsticks are known for this issue but considering the sleek ones feel like butter and don’t move all day. I think I was just expecting a little more pay off from this product due to his videos being so critical of other brands. Saying that, I still would use this product as I do like the colour and easy application but I wouldn’t buy another colour when I can get some nice ones from sleek and other cheap brands that last the same.

Hope this was helpful!
