Jeffree Star x Manny MUA Collaboration Review

I was counting down those damn seconds to get my hands on this bad boy. Just LOOK HOW PRETTY. I’m a sucker for packaging and I am totally just not throwing this box away. Ever.

I absolutely love the detail and effort that went into the packaging for this collab. It’s not just a flimsy lil cardboard box, it’s a proper box with a magnetic close, with a protective sleeve, embossed with the two emblems DAMN they thought about this. And that’s before you’ve even opened it. Because BAM, you’re hit with shiny rainbows. I’m equally in love with the individual boxes too. Honestly I’m so sad. I’m keeping the individual cardboard boxes. What’s wrong with me? Even the packaging on the products is new and pretty and lovely. This is my first Skin Frost, partially because I’m not a massive fan of the pink and I didn’t fancy a massive pink highlighter, so this pretty black packaging I am so far down for.

Daddy

As soon as I saw this colour in the collection reveal, I knew it had to be mine, with the collection or not. It’s a cold, 90’s style brown and I adore it. I just love cold colours on my lips. I’ve found that with almost every Jeffree Star liquid lipstick I’ve tried, the formula and applicator has been slightly different, but here I’ve found my favourite. There isn’t too much on the brush, just enough for ya whole face (well, lips) and it dries all the way down, super quickly. No sticky, no smudging, nothing. What a liquid lipstick miracle.

I’m Shook

fullsizeoutput_13b8

Oooh now isn’t this a summery number. I’m not usually one for bright colours but oh HELLO. This is such a lovely bright coral colour, when I opened it, I thought I might even have preferred it over Daddy, but when on, Daddy still takes the top spot. This will definitely be one for holiday. It’s a bit lighter than I thought it’d be, but everyone seems to hate bright reddish colours on me, so maybe that’s a blessing in disguise.

Eclipse

fullsizeoutput_13ba

As my first Skin Frost, I’m not quite sure how to feel about it. The colour is a cold peachy colour, which I love, but the part I’m not sure about is the texture. I’m so used to ABH highlighters, and the formula is just SO different. My ABH ones are so smooth and buttery, while this one feels really – gritty. I’m also finding it quite hard work to get that BLINDING highlight, although that could be because I’m using a fan brush and I keep seeing people using those nice fat fluffy ones. Maybe that’s the secret for that glow and not to have bits of it flying all over the pan…

All in all, the lipsticks are definitely my favourite part of this bundle, the highlighter is yet to convince me. Buuuut, I’m ordering some new brushes next week, one of which includes a lovely fluffy highlighting brush, so watch this space, my opinion could be about to change…

    I absolutely love the names of these products! “I’m Shook” is fab! Both of the lipsticks really suit you, it’s great to hear that they’re non-sticky and don’t smudge either! Gorgeous photos as always!

    The packaging is gorgeous! I’m not a fan of the pink packaging, and it kind of puts me off buying the products, but this one is perfect!

    Omg I loved that brown toned liquid lipstick from Jeffree Star, this made me want to go purchase a new lipstick from that line, I only own one but I absolutely LOVE the quality of it – it’s like a taupe gray color. I like those cool toned lip shades! Thanks for sharing!

    The packaging is as pretty as the product! I especially love the eclipse colour!x

    Those lipsticks look fab. I like Daddy too. Takes me back to my teenage days.

  11. May 14, 2017 / 9:50 pm

    I actually love I’m Shook more than Daddy on you! But that’s just an opinion from a stranger, haha! Thank you for sharing this! I’m still not sure if I am going to buy it anyways! xo

    I wanted that collaboration so bad. Hopefully they restock soon. Reading your post gave me life & now I have to have it.

  13. May 15, 2017 / 5:06 pm

    Loving how those liquid lipsticks look on you! Daddy is such a nice colour!

  14. May 15, 2017 / 5:07 pm

    This collection looks insane! I don’t blame you for keeping the box, it’s stunning!!
    I love the look of both they lipsticks and they really suit you!
    I’m not sure I’d like the skin frost if it has a gritty texture as like you, the highlights I use tend to have a buttery texture!

    You’re not the only one who saves pretty packaging! I have a thing about beautiful boxes and things. I think marketing execs see me coming with glee haha.

    Hi, the packaging is something special. I want to try the lipstick.

  17. May 15, 2017 / 5:23 pm

    I love liquid lipsticks that have quick dry effect! I’m not sure if I can pull off ‘Daddy’ like you do though. I love the colour nevertheless! And the packaging looks expensive! 😉 x

  20. May 15, 2017 / 6:20 pm

    I’m shook looks divine on you! LOL it’s funny that you mentioned packaging, I’m the same way. I always think “I wonder how they thought of this or how many prototypes they had before this one was chosen.” I guess it’s the marketer in me.

    Anyway, great post – everything looks amazing!

    Oh my this is so pretty I would definately be keeping the boxes too. I am a huge fan of the colours and you look stunning. I would have never opted for a brown however I like the way it looks so you may have turned me! X
