Swatches: Eclipse, Daddy, I’m Shook

Back when I first saw swatches of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics X Manny MUA Collection, I just knew I had to make it all mine. I don’t know much about Manny. I’ve seen maybe one of his videos? I just wasn’t interested in keeping up. I have seen him a few times on Jeffree’s channel and that’s about all I can tell you about him. I’m not a fan of his, but I am a fan of Jeffree. I love his products and can’t contain myself when it comes to his new collections. Especially his lipsticks!

First of all, the packaging is perfect! I love the silver on black. It makes for a nice elegant look.

First up is the Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse. Eclipse is described as a blinding pale icy peach. This is my first Skin Frost so I was surprised to see just how huge it was! It would probably take me a lifetime to hit pan on this bad boy! It’s a really gorgeous shade. I don’t know if I’d say it was blinding, but it sure did give me some serious glow! I suppose if you layered it a bit more you would achieve that blinding effect. But that’s not what I was going for. Not this time around anyway.

Daddy is described as a cool toned brown. It applied just as beautifully as all of my other Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks. It’s a really pretty shade, but I don’t think this one is for me. I couldn’t even get a decent photograph hence the awkward pose. I’ll experiment with it a bit more before deciding on whether or not to pass it on to someone else.

I’m Shook is described as a medium toned burnt coral. This is easily my favorite lipstick from Jeffree Star Cosmetics! I haven’t been able to put this down since I got it. Even my husband can’t help but compliment me every time I wear it. The fact that this shade is still in stock amazes me. Because it’s the best item in the collection! I should probably order a backup while I can.

I think this collection was very nicely done. I’d love to see more collabs in the future. But maybe with someone I’m more familiar with?

Swatch

It’s been a little while since I’ve purchased anything from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I really wanted the Beauty Killer Palette and one (or a few) of the Skin Frosts, but after reading several mixed reviews I decided not to get either of them. But when I saw the Watermelon Soda Velour Liquid Lipstick I just knew that I had to make it mine!

Watermelon Soda is a very unique shade in my collection. It’s a super bright shade of watermelon/coral, but somehow still wearable. Or at least it is to me. I mean it’s not neon like some of the other shades I purchased and applied only to be stunned by my own reflection. It’s the perfect bold shade for Summer! And it smells like watermelon! It comes in a Limited Edition yellow packaging that I’m not too crazy about. I prefer the pink! The applicator is very soft like some of the other Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks that I’ve tried in the past. My only real issue is the formula. It applied really streaky! No matter how many times I went over it with the applicator I couldn’t get it to even out. A lip brush didn’t help much either. From a distance you can’t really tell, but up close you definitely can.

It still made for a comfortable wear. It lasted through dinner and drinks without budging. But after about 6 hours it looked rather patchy. It definitely wasn’t a good look. It’s a beautiful shade and I’m really digging the watermelon scent. But $25.00 ($18.00 + shipping) for a streaky lipstick is one hell of a letdown. I’m pretty forgiving and can work with just about anything. But how can you work with something that flat out refuses to even out? I’ll keep trying to make it work. The shade is just too pretty to sit at the bottom of my toolbox collecting dust.

You can see Watermelon Soda in action below. I posted a close-up so that you could see what I mean.

Swatches (Top to Bottom): Androgyny, Masochist

When I purchased Androgyny I picked up another shade I had been eyeing. Actually there are quite a few I’d like to get still, but if I don’t limit myself things get out of hand.

Anyway, the shade I’m referring to is Masochist. Masochist is described as the color of crushed berries on ice. It’s one of the most beautiful, vibrant pinks in my collection. And let me tell you, once you put this bad boy on it’s not going anywhere! Even after removal it left behind a bit of a stain. Thankfully this one didn’t smell like anything. But as the lovely Amanda pointed out, it was just the raw ingredients and nothing to worry about. I just thought I’d mention it since Androgyny did have a strong scent.

Masochist applied perfectly. I did use my lip brush to line my lips because I find that I can be a bit messy with the darker shades. It felt very comfortable and lightweight and seriously lasted the entire day. I’m really digging the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks and it’s quickly taking over my liquid lipstick drawer. And I think Masochist just might be my favorite.
