It’s been a few weeks since I have posted anything. So I figured you all would be wanting a new post. Or maybe no one reads this or gives a crap. I mean either way today I’m doing a new post.
Who here has heard of Jeffree Star? Show of hands?
I honestly had no idea who he was just had heard of his makeup line. Everyone kept telling me I needed to try his makeup. But honestly I didn’t realize he as a person was so popular too until I started watching him on YouTube recently.
After a couple weeks of watching him I’m like okay I need to look at his makeup. Unfortunately it’s only sold online. Bummer. Because I like swatching before I go out and buy something. But I decided for only $18 a tube (yes I said only I have some pretty expensive lipsticks in my collection) I needed to try at least one. Also his highlighters look killer. But I feel figured lipstick was a good place to start. I wanted originally to get one lipstick and his new eyeshadows. But when I went to order it was sold out! Bummer again! So I decided to order 3 shades and a lip scrub.
Ordering is super easy. But if he has a new product come out girl you better get on it because they seem to sell out fast. I ordered and had my order in like 4 days. So pretty fast! I also love that they send you notifications when your package has been delivered. Very very nice in my opinion.
Packaging was killer. Like beautiful. Each item was wrapped in tissue paper sealed with a sticker. All in a pink box. That wasn’t labeled all over as being Jeffree Star witch I can appreciate. Because we have had an issue with something being stolen in the past because the company had their name on the box and they knew what was inside. I forgot to take a picture of it in the packaging. Don’t kill me. I was excited.
I ordered these three lipsticks and the one lip scrub. The lip scrub is Spearmint. From left to right the lipsticks are Breakfast At Tiffany’s (blue shade), Pussywhipped (copper shade) (also I appreciate his names so much), and the last one is Anna Nicole (red orange shade).
Something I noticed upon opening these that the blue shade smells like mint. The other two have a very gross like nail polish kinda smell. Not sure why or it that’s normal just thought I’d note that.
I’ll start with the lip scrub. Honestly when I opened this and smelled it I just wanted to eat the entire jar. I was warned that I’d want to. haha My husband wasn’t as impressed. He thought it smelled like toothpaste. If you don’t like mint like my husband though then this is not the lip scrub for you. Luckily he has several other non mint flavors.
Inside it’s a light green shade. And you can see all the little sugar crystals. I wanna make note though that the size of his lip scrubs are huge. Like I’ve tried several other brands and most are tiny little jars and aren’t able to be eaten. His are!
I tried this last night and totally didn’t read if I was supposed to wet my lips or not. (His website doesn’t say to I just looked) So I did it dry and it was a tad bit hard to rub around because it is slightly crumbly but once you get moving it it works a ton better. I did opt to lick it off rather then wipe because let’s be honest this crap smells damn good. So keep that in mind. It taste as good as it smells. (I had to go make a cup of mint tea afterwards!)
Overall it definitely did make my lips a ton ton smoother. So I’ll definitely be buying other flavor options.
Next up we have the lipstick in the shade Breakfast At Tiffany’s. This was the one that was the reason for my order. This shade is absolutely beautiful in the picture on his website. Normally I go for darker blues but this one was kinda a teal and it just spoke to me.
Upon first swatch I noticed this one goes on super pigmented! Like bam! In your face! Blinding teal blue color. So if you aren’t into crazy colors I’d say steer clear of this one. I though love Crazy shades. Like I need a crazy blue color in my life.
This color on the face though is killer. Like absolutely killer. It’s beautiful! And it literally never budged all day! The look I created with this one is my favorite look I’ve ever done. I definitely give this one high praise. It is very drying though so if you don’t like that I’d shy away from his lipsticks.
Next we Have Pussy Whipped.
The copper shade. Honestly I don’t know about this one. Is so gorgeous swatched and in the tube but on my lips it just didn’t show up. Totally could of been because I had just scrubbed them to death trying out a long lasting lipstick I don’t know. But I had to use about six coats to get this. And I’m not even very happy with it.
I wanna love this color though so maybe I’ll give it another go later and see what I think. Also ignore my eye makeup I had done a completely different look and decided to switch lipsticks even though it didn’t really go. This one is sticky. But could of been the 15,000 coats I did.
Next we have Anna Nicole. The reddish orange shade. Swatching it I was iffy. Not on the color itself but the color on me. I look terrible in red but good in orange. It’s a strange deal.
I had a difficult time deciding on a look for this one. So I just took a picture of what it looks like on.
It honestly looks very thin! But after it dried I love the way it looks. It just is very hard to apply because it does look watery when putting it on.
Overall I do love his lipsticks! Definitely worth $18 a tube. As a bonus here is dirty money too!
It’s definitely a fave!
And as always stay beautiful!
