Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I’m so excited to be writing this post right now, you guys really don’t even know.. I basically just received these beauty products in the mail yesterday and was itching all night while I had to take pictures and type out all my feelings to finally bring you this post! So, without further ado, let’s just dive right in to my Jeffree Star Cosmetics Summer Chrome Collection Review!
So as some of you may know, Jeffree Star recently released his Summer Chrome Collection and I just couldn’t resist the hype.
I have never order from this brand before but here’s a very quick opinion of the process just based off of my experience.
I really love the website, it’s vibrant and easy to navigate so although there are a lot of colors going on, you can easily find everything you are looking for as well as the prices being super transparent. So not only are the prices easy to see, but they are affordable as well.
Although I am a lipstick girl at heart, I have wanted nothing more than to try Jeffree’s skin frosts. So that’s exactly what I went looking for, as well as the lip scrubs because, I’m not gonna lie, every time I saw the flavors, I just genuinely could NOT pick one. They are basically three of my favorite things, whether it be from childhood or the present so I splurged and just went for all three (**spoiler: I do not regret it).
So by the time I added everything to my cart, it was almost $100 and I was surprised to see that there was still a shipping and handling fee that I had to pay. Honestly though, it’s super affordable and what I didn’t know is that it is 2-day shipping so you’re order is going to come to you superrrr fast, which as a girl who does not like to wait, I appreciate (:
Then, once the package came, I really didn’t have any expectations as to how the box would look like, but I was so pleasantly surprised with all of the packaging.
The products were delivered in a hot pink box sealed with clear Jeffree Star tape and inside each item was individually wrapped in tissue paper as well as bubble wrap.
I loved this touch because it made me feel like all of my items were super safe while being transported and it also felt like there was thought and time put into not only the product but all of the “background” stuff too.
So, as for my initial thoughts? I’m sure you can guess that so far the products and brand are getting an A+++ for me! So let’s jump into the actual products..
Velour Lip Scrubs
1. Watermelon Gum
Okay so I’m should probably have saved this one for last (because in my opinion it’s the absolute BEST, but I’m not in the business of patience today), but I absolutely LOOOOOVE this!
So this is totally random but literally like 5 years ago I tried a lip scrub from Lush and it basically totally blew my lips up. Yeah, trust me, it was not a pretty picture. So since then I have sworn off lip scrubs, but when I saw these flavors, it was like something overcame me and I just couldn’t say no!
Well let me tell you that I do not regret it. Obviously I’ve only had them for approximately 24 hours but I am most happy to report that there has been no reaction to the product what-so-ever!
So not only does the product feel super gentle and really high quality on the lips, it both tastes and smells amazing.
Throwing it back, this smells IDENTICAL to Bubble Yum watermelon gum from my childhood. Honestly, it tastes like it too. It’s delicious and it’s the most fun bubblegum pink color, perfect for summer!
I’m excited to keep trying this out and to see how this really helps not only my natural lips as well as how it helps with lipstick application (specifically matte liquid lips)!
If you could pick any of the three flavors, I would recommend this one first!
2. Blue Raspberry Sucker
Okay so this one is probably my least favorite, but that’s only if I absolutely HAD to put them in order.
The same goes for this lip scrub as the watermelon one. To put it simply, it WORKS and it’s AMAZING.
Just like the watermelon gum, this smells just like it says: like a Dum Dum Blue Raspberry lollipop!
It’s a light blue shade that tastes just as good as it looks, smells, and sounds, and this is another one I would highly recommend if you’re able to get your hands on it!
The down side to this one is that I did check the JSC website this morning and it’s looking like it’s sold out; however, maybe you might stumble across this sometime/where else and you’ll be able to add it to your collections (:
3. Orange Soda
And now because this is the last one, I’m sure you already know that this (by default) is my second favorite!
I just loooooove orange soda. I know it might not be everyone’s favorite, but I love to break up my love affair with Coke every now and again with some Fanta/Sunkist and this lip scrub smells just like the first whiff of a freshly opened can.
This one does have an orange-soda-y taste; however, it is probably the one that resembles the flavor the least, but obviously, this doesn’t bother me at all.
It is a light orange color and again, does all of the same wonderful things the first two advertise to do and more.
Gist of the story for these guys? I love them and I am so happy to have been able to grab them. I know that getting all three is excessive but they are so fun and flavors that I genuinely thought were so unique. I feel like although they are ‘summertime flavors’, I won’t get tired of them and will be using them all throughout the year. Plus, I know I’ll be giving at least one of them to my mom (:
At the price tag of $12, I do think they are worth it. You’re getting a lot of product for your money and it is quality so in my opinion, it is 100% worth it! So check them out if you’re interested or have been in the market for an awesome new lip scrub!
1. Summer Snowcone
Okay, so like I said I really have just been dying to try some JSC skin frosts and that is basically the reason I even picked this one.
I feel like just by looking at it, it is not a shade I would normally just pick on my own; however, I couldn’t be more pleased with the way it performs in person.
First of all, I just adore the name of this product, and I think it is a really unique and fun shade, especially for the summertime. This is definitely a color you can wear no matter the time of year, but for me (as I have really pale skin), this is best when I’m nice and tan.
It has beautiful, gold color payoff and is pigmented as fudge to say the least. It is buildable, but honestly, a little goes a long way and you’ll be practically blinding someone with your highlight with just one swipe onto the cheek bones.
In this case, the blinding highlight is a good thing. Even though it is definitely there because of makeup, it has a natural-ness to it that I really appreciate. It is just beautiful AND glam all at the same time.
Secondly, the amount of product you get is huge (for only $29, shut. up.) and I know I won’t feel guilty when I start dousing my body in this highlighter because I feel like it has the potential to last me basically forever.
And, P.S. I think this looks the most gorgeous as a dusting on collarbones and shoulders, ugh, I die.
But to sum everything up.. I have nothing like this and am so happy to have been able to add it to my collection. Check it out!
2. Crystal Ball
Now this one is a little more in my comfort zone. It is an icy white highlighter that I feel would go good with my skin tone no matter what the season is (AKA, I don’t need to be kind of tan).
I love this one, even though I might light the Summer Snowcone more, especially as this one seems to have a duo-chrome shift to it.
Just like the previous skin frost, this is so pigmented and beautiful on the skin. I think this one is a little less natural but still very unique and definitely something to add to the collection.
This is another highlighter I had nothing like, so for me, this was worth the purchase. Like I mentioned before, you are getting a lot of product for what you are paying for, and the quality is honestly outstanding, which makes me feel like it’s all worth it in the long run!
All in all, I’m so pleased with the products I got from this collection. I love the metallic, chrome packaging that everything came in and I think that everything I got is super unique and something that will not only last but add to any one’s makeup collection.
I think that Jeffree has an amazing brand that he built and I really can’t wait to see all of the future collections that will be coming out.
I know that I can definitely say that I will 100% be purchasing more from this brand and I hope it has inspired you guys to maybe check some of the products out as well!
P.P.S. Get them before they’re gone!
But until next time..
