Jeffree Star Cosmetics X Manny MUA Bundle Review
This collaboration came out about a month ago. I’m very excited to be writing a review about it and let you know what I think of it.
Just in case you don’t know, Jeffree Star is a well known makeup artist. He has his own brand of makeup and he has come out with many (liquid) lipsticks, highlighters and more. I’ve tried the liquid lipsticks from Jeffree Star Cosmetics before and I think they are really good. Now, Manny MUA is also a popular makeup artist. He worked together with Jeffree Star Cosmetics to come out with two liquid lipsticks and one highlighter. These products are limited edition.
I ordered the bundle on https://jeffreestarcosmetics.com. The bundle is all three of the products and the box that it comes in. You can also buy the products separate with a discount code but then you won’t get the pretty box with it. The bundle is going to be available again on May 13th, 10 AM PST.
The packaging looks absolutely STUNNING! I love everything about it and it’s actually the main reason why I wanted the bundle instead of the separate products. I don’t know if you can see it but the black boxes that the products are in also has a cool texture to it.
The products look like this, to be honest I was more excited about the highlighter than the liquid lipsticks. That’s because I normally don’t really go for colors like that. I was happy to add them to my makeup collection anyway because I’m a die hard fan of both Jeffree and Manny. The reddish liquid lipstick is called I’m Shook and the brownish one is called Daddy. The highlighter is called Eclipse and that’s actually very thoughtful. The logo of Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a star and the logo of Manny is a moon. The sun is a star and when the moon moves in front of the sun it’s called an eclipse. Mind. is. blown.
Here are swatches of them, the liquid lipsticks are all matte but the reddish one looks a bit shiny because it hadn’t dried fully yet. The colors look pretty good and I really like the highlight especially. The only thing that I noticed about the highlight is dat the formula issn’t as soft as I wanted it to be. It’s also not crazy pigmented and requires multiple layers before it looks like the picture above. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing. There are people that like subtle highlights and there are people that like very intense ones. This way both sides can be pleased.
Here’s a picture of the highlight applied on my cheekbones. It’s a very nice light champagne shade and I applied about three layers for it to look like this. If you want to make it more intense you can use a setting spray before applying the highlighter.
This is what the liquid lipsticks look like on my lips, I like the formula a lot. It issn’t too drying on the lips and it’s very long lasting. I thought that I would like Daddy more than I’m Shook but it’s actually the other way around now. Daddy is a cool shade but I think that I’d reach for I’m Shook more. Normally I don’t really wear reddish lipsticks but this lipstick issn’t just red, it has a bright coral shade to it that I really like.
I’m very happy that I got my hands on these products, it’s definitely a staple item to have!
