Posts Tagged ‘Jeffree Star’

It seems every post is a new Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, I know! I swear I’m almost through the initial review process with them 😂 This is another home run for me!

As with the Alien palette, I have one con– it is so clunky. Even moreso than Alien. It’s set up like a trunk which is a cute concept… But it’s so thick and bulky. The good side to that is that it’s very sturdy! The outside box is a white sleeve with the star emblem. Then the actual palette is faux red leather. There are two metal clasps that hold it closed much like on a typical trunk.

There is a mirror inside. I covered it because I was getting a bad glare from my ring light, but it’s there! The initial draw are the reds, of course. But I was pleasantly surprised at how many color combinations there are! There are neutrals, pinks, purples, as well as the reds! So far I have not had any staining, but I am pretty sure this is a vegan palette, which means the reds are dyes and have the potential to stain (if you’re not familiar, non vegan reds use beetles which do not stain…some red dyes can stain sensitive skins).

My surprise I love this shade shades: Cake Mix, Tongue Pop, Prick, and O Positive. To be clear, I love all of the reds… But these three looked so boring to me in the palette but swatched/applied sooo beautifully. O Positive looked grey to me but it’s my favorite kind of neutral–a greyish purple 😍

Everything has blended perfectly so far and no complaints with any shades! Here are so looks so far. Please keep in mind I’m a beginner and I unfortunately have to do quick makeup due to baby and work time constraints lol

What do you guys think of this palette?

I’m slowly making my way through trying out all of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palettes! This is the first brand that I have all of their palettes, and it’s interesting to see how the brand evolved from first to last.

This was the first palette from the brand that really caught my attention. The packaging is cute, but it was the actual shades that drew me in. But this is a much more stacking/handling friendly palette than the Alien one. It’s very slim and durable with a mirror inside.

I’m not sure how my picture ended up off center lol but here we are. (I’m hoping to up my blog picture game soon once I get my vanity done!)

I love these shades!! It’s probably not the most usable looking palette to a lot of people, but I’m so excited for those pastel colors! I’m so into Bitch!, Submerge, and Splash! And Divine is a perfect silver sparkle.

This will be perfect for summer if it ever comes back lol.

What do you guys think? Interesting or intimidating?

So for Christmas my wonderful husband bought me a whole set of Velour Liquid Lipsticks from JSC’s Thirsty release plus one from his most current Alien release.

Like with his other products, I love the packaging. It’s all very pretty and looks expensive.

These go on very nicely, mostly due to the way the doe foot applicator is shaped. It literally fits on my lips perfectly and I can just glides it on. The colors really don’t need a second coat; they were all very opaque on first application. Some are matte and some are metallics, but they all felt very comfortable on! They did experience some wear off throughout the day, but it was a very even wearing off which I love.

A lot of these are colors I will mostly wear for Instagram looks, I’m not going to lie lol. I’m not bold enough to wear a lot of these outside of the house. They are all very pretty though!

So far I’m liking the formula! Do you guys have any of these? What’s your favorite shade? Out of these, I love Cherry Wet and Fudge Pop

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien Palette was the first palette I opened from my Christmas gifts, and I would have been happy only getting this! I wanted it the second I saw pictures of it 😩 There are so many shades that I loved, and there was more than one green! Greens are my favorite shadow color.

I forgot to get a picture of the box, but it’s a pretty shimmery pink. My only complaint on the whole entire palette so far is that it is a little not-stacking friendly. I don’t want to say it’s clunky because it is a thin palette, but the eyes pop out on the cover. It looks and feels good quality and I think that adds to that feeling, but I could have gone for flat eyes.

The palette is held shut with a magnet, and there is a decent sized mirror in it. And look at this shade range!! 😭

I was initially so drawn to it for the obvious greens: Alien, Area 51, and Abduction. However, Phone Home and X-Files are my favorite kind of neutral mattes, and I also fell in love with Martian Soil, Space Cowboy, and Probe upon usage.

There’s a perfect “setting” color (Titan), a good brow/inner corner highlighter (Pluto), and darker mattes (Black Hole and Ghost OG).

Some of the swatches look wonky but I think it’s me because all of the colors I’ve used so far are great. They are pigmented, and they blend. I didn’t notice any patchiness. I actually managed to use a lot of colors so far. Please keep in mind I do my idea of “mom makeup” in that I have limited time in between mom things like baby crying haha…so they are not blended to perfection.

If you get the chance to grab this, I highly recommend it! What do you guys think of this palette?

I hope everyone had a great holiday! Or if you don’t celebrate anything, I hope you had a great normal Tuesday haha. If you don’t follow my Instagram (Avlovesmakeup), let me fill you in on what my amazing husband bought me: lots and lots of Jeffree Star Cosmetics!

The best part is that I only talked about really wanting to try his makeup because I had heard such great things about it. And the Alien palette (his most recent) came out right after I swore no more eyeshadow palettes for a long time. And I was so sad because it looked right up my alley lol.

The first package I opened from my husband was the Alien palette and I was so excited. I then proceeded to open every palette JS has as well as lip scrubs, a set of liquid lipsticks, the infamous star mirror, some highlighters, and a makeup bag

He also bought me a Wet n Wild box set from the Fire Dragon vs Ice Dragon! I was just blown away. He’s the best gift giver and just so generous to keep my addiction to makeup going 😂

So I’m excited to start doing reviews of all of my new makeup products! I know JS is controversial to a lot of people, but I’m going to focus on the makeup. If you really don’t like him, I will apologize ahead of time (I dislike someone enough that I don’t buy their products anymore, so I get it).

On an ending note, my husband’s last gift to me was an actual vanity! The lighting is terrible in my room right now, but I’m working on setting it up and fixing that 😊

Are you guys interested in JS Cosmetics? Do you own anything?
