Jeffree Star Cosmetics x Manny MUA Collection...

I was lucky enough to get hold of some of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics collaboration with Manny MUA. Unfortunately, I didn't get all three items, but I managed to get two. Hopefully I'll get hold of the last one soon!

So yes - I managed to get hold of the Eclipse skin frost, and the Velour Liquid Lipstick in 'Daddy'. I'm so sad I didn't manage to get 'I'm Shook' as it was such a gorgeous gorgeous colour - I'll come across it one day though!

First Impressions

The packaging is obviously one of the first things that catches your eye. The little boxes it comes in has a really pretty marking on it. Almost like little triangles in a mixture of matte and glossy finishes. It looks pretty awesome! And I loved the black as well - makes such a difference to the pink!

For the actual products... the lipstick was incredible. It really carries the benefits of all of Jeffree's other liquid lipsticks, and I was so happy about that. I've actually worn Daddy every day since getting it last Sunday and it stays all. day. It comes off a little bit in the middle of your lips when you eat, but everything else it stays on (AND DOESN'T DRY OUT). Such a great formula, and such a great colour - a colour that would match everyone I'd say! The picture below is the swatch with absolutely no editing whatsoever so you can see the real colour.

Isn't that a gorgeous dark nudey brown! *Heart eyes*

Now for the highlighter... This is where I was completely let down. Jeffree Star and Manny MUA are known for being glowing goddesses, but when I swatched Eclipse, I was so disappointed.  

On the right was a finger swatch, and the left applied with a brush. How disappointing is that!? Again, this has no editing at all.

However, saying all of this, when you apply it to the face with a brush (I use the Morphe B13 brush) and layer it up a bit, it does have a really nice pay off! I don't like to be glowing so that aliens up in space can see me, I just like to have a nice little glow to my cheekbones. And it does stay all day even if your foundation slides all over the place. So overall, it's not all that bad! I just wouldn't buy this again.

Keep an eye on my insta for a photo of both products on my face - @makeuptish

Did you have any of the collection? What did you make of it?
