Jeffree Star just recently released his new summer 2019 collection and if you haven’t seen it then you most definitely have been living under a rock. He came out with his biggest collection yet all surrounding the theme of Jawbreakers and everything tasty and sweet! after looking through the whole collection I definitely sat there and thought ” why do you do this to me Jeffree Star ?” and I also had to text my mum to ask if spending £107 on two makeup products was acceptable. In the end I decided that I only needed (lol, did I actually need it?) the highlighter palette and a lipstick.

The packaging of this highlighter palette is everything as it really goes well with the theme of sugary treats. The packaging has a light blue holographic vibe to it and it really catches your eye.
The packaging of the actual palette is quite nostalgic, as it reminds me of slush puppies. I used to have these all the time as kid. The bright colours really make the palette stand out, there is no way that this palette will get lost in all of your other palettes. The size is very big for a highlighting palette, however, the pans inside are very big which I really like.
There is a big mirror inside, which is normal for a Jeffree Star palette.
C O L O U R S
All of the colours in this palette are creamy and SO pigmented. The colours are consistent and perform the same. The longevity on these colours is actually insane. If I apply one of these to my face, it will last all day! The highlighters are so buttery to the point where they will move a little in the pan. The colours are VERY blinding and not really for those who might like a subtle highlighter. I honestly reach for every. single. one. of these colours and I definitely think if you are a highlighter lover, this palette is definitely for you!
A duo chrome white silver with blue reflects. This shade is more blue than white. VERYYYYY PIGMENTED!
A unique shade with all of the shades into one. This is something different from what we have seen from Jeffree and I like it. At first I was nervous to use this colour as I thought it was going to be really dark, however, it is quite a light champagne peachy colour. This colour is essentially all of the other colours in this palette into one, they are blended really well together.
A peachy shimmer shade. This is definitely a medium toned peach shade. if you are super super fair, then It might be a little dark for you. When I have a tan, this colour is great as a highlighter for me.
A rich orange copper shade with gold reflects. This shade is STUNNING!!! it is too dark for me to use, but I use it as an eyeshadow shimmer. It is so blinding and honestly perfect to wear with a brown smokey eye. This colour is different to anything I have seen before and honestly such a unique shade.
A baby pink shimmer. This colour is one of my favourites. I don’t really wear blush much, so this shade is honestly perfect because the pink tone acts as my blush. This is such a flattering shade and perfect for a pink shimmer on the lids.
A blinding icy shade. This colour is completely different to the first blue shade. It is a blue highlighter, but definitely is more on the white side (even though it doesn’t look like it in the pan). I use this for my inner corners, brown bone, cupids bow and nose. It definitely is blue, but it isn’t as blue as the first shade.
From the swatches you can see that the colours almost look wet, that is how insane they are. I have previously brought one of Jeffree Star’s highlighters before, it was the skin frost in the shade Peach Goddess so I definitely knew what to expect. However, this palette honestly is incredible that I was completely blown away ( even though I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed because Jeffree Star cosmetics never fails )
Is this highlighter palette for you?
YES.. YESS AND YESSS! – I don’t care who you are you need this palette. lol.
This palette is definitely not for those who love a “natural glow” or a subtle highlighter” you buy this palette because you want the full shabang. This is so blinding you will be glowing to the gods!
If you are someone who loves being a little bit adventurous with highlighter colours, or even loves creating wacky looks. Then yes sure, this palette is also for you. It doesn’t have any greens, purples, or black highlighters.. but it does have bright blue shades. But it also has more natural wear able colours such as white and peachy colours.
If you love Jeffree Star and are thinking about getting this palette. GET IT. because you will not be disappointed and it is incredible for the price. If you think about his Skin Frost single highlighters they are £25, in this palette you are getting 6 different highlighters for £37. That is fantastic in my opinion.
Now onto the lipstick!
I got the shade strawberry crush because I was drawn to it and knew that it would look wicked with a tan (after tanning and wearing this, I can confirm that it does) I have multiple of Jeffree Star cosmetics liquid lipsticks and they are by far my favourite formulation of liquid lipstick. The liquid lipstick is matte and dries down very quickly. You dont need to reapply, it depends on what you are eating and drinking of course. The lipstick doesn’t smell of anything and it is super opaque.
Strawberry Crush Velour liquid lipstick details –
– It is £16 and can get it from Beauty Bay / Jeffree Star Cosmetics.
– Shelf life of 12m
– 5.8 ML of product
– Vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, gluten free. wow.

I love love love! the lime green packaging. I think it looks exceptionally good with this neon red colour. The lipstick comes in the normal box packaging as all of his other liquid lipsticks.

This neon red colour is gorgeous! it is such a lovely flattering colour that will look perfect on any skin tone! For Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks you can also use them as eyeliner as they are eye safe, which is really good. You can use them to create a wicked wined liner or even use them in your waterline for a bright red moment. This colour is super bold and you can definitely wear it during the day, or even if you are going out in the evening.
It is so opaque and so bright. This colour is stunning!
Is this liquid lipstick for you?
If you are obsessed with Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks than yes of course, you need this lipstick. If not this shade, then definitely one of the other shades. He came out with a bunch of different shades and they are all very different.
If you love a liquid lipstick then this is perfect for you. It lasts all day and is so comfortable to wear.
If you love the colour, yes duh you need it!
If you love getting creative with your looks and can see yourself wearing it on your lips and maybe as a liner too, definitely worth it.
Did you get anything from the Jeffree Star Jawbreaker collection??
