Jeffree Star Cosmetics 2017 Holiday Collection Review

Glitter packaging. Need I say more?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, I love pumpkin spice and Hanukkah as much as the next gal, but that’s not what I’m talking about. It’s time to reveal the Jeffree Star Cosmetics 2017 Holiday Collection!

Jeffree posted a YouTube video on November 12th revealing the entire collection, which includes 8 Velour Liquid Lipsticks, 4 Lip Ammunition lipsticks, 3 Lip Scrubs, and 2 Skin Frost highlighting palettes.

As important as the actual products are, we all know why we’re here: packaging.

Jeffree Star truly outdid himself with packaging this year, encasing every holiday item in pink gradient glitter components. They look magical and truly scream holiday spirit!

Let’s start with the original liquid lipsticks.

You all know how I feel about Jeffree Star’s matte liquid lipstick formula, and I don’t think this particular collection will disappoint. I was a bit concerned that Jeffree had run out of creative colors for his makeup line, but he proved me wrong once again!

The first liquid lipstick is a shade called “Mermaid Blood”. Jeffree revealed this shade on his Snapchat a few days before the official release, and it definitely made a statement. This bright teal is sure to turn heads!

The next shade is called “Human Nature”, and it looks like the sibling to the famous JSC shade, “Androgyny”. It is a mauve neutral shade that isn’t too bold or bright.

Get ready for this next shade! It’s “First Class” and it’s a pure gold metallic lipstick! This is not a lipstick for the faint of heart. Again, I will not be rocking this shade but it could be useful for creating lip art if that’s more of your jam.

Hallelujah, a nude lipstick! “Christmas Cookie” is a pinky tan color that looks just like Jeffree’s natural lip color. This would be the perfect lip for someone who’s dying to try a new product but wants to just dip their toe in the water. I might get this one for myself since I haven’t yet found a staple nude that doesn’t wash me out. #palepeopleproblems

My favorite shade from the collection, “Poinsettia”. Who can resist a red lipstick? Certainly not this girl, and I know I need to have this pure metallic red. Perfect for the holidays.

“Berries on Ice” is an absolutely gorgeous purple shade. It looks kind of like “Santa Baby” in the bottle, but they could not look more different on the lips! I don’t know how I feel about wearing purple lipstick as an everyday look, but honestly, I may just try it. Lipstick is supposed to be fun!

“Medusa” is a teal gray color that will definitely turn heads. This one is a bit out of my wheelhouse, regardless of how many crazy colors I wear. But hey, if this seems intriguing to you, give it a try!

The final shade is “Santa Baby”. It’s a pink-toned purple shade that looks similar to another liquid lip that we’ll go into later. It looks absolutely gorgeous in the reveal video and I’m sure it would look incredible on a lot of different skin tones.

Now onto his cream lipstick formula.

Jeffree’s best liquid lipstick (in my opinion) has been transformed into a Lip Ammunition stick formula as well! “Redrum” is a beautiful classic blue red that truly can’t be beat.

The other new shades include “Gargoyle”, a gray shade, “Allegedly”, an orange nude, and “Champagne Tears”, a shimmery opal lipstick topper.

It’s not a holiday collection without a blinding highlight!

For this release, Jeffree Star has created not one, not two, but eight new highlighter shades! They can be found in two new travel-friendly palettes, 24 Karat and Platinum Ice. 24 Karat features gold shades specifically for medium to dark skin tones, while Platinum Ice features some crazier shades for those who are adventurous enough to try. These colors include a yellow, blue, and even a green highlighter! Jeffree has never created highlighter palettes before, and I think these will become very popular.

And finally, the lip scrubs.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics is releasing three new lip scrubs for the 2017 Holiday Collection: Candy Cane, Marshmallow, and Lemon Icebox Cookies. Jeffree is known for creating delicious flavors (all of his lip scrubs are edible!) and these new products certainly fit the bill!

All of the products will go on sale on November 18th on his official website at 10am PST. Here’s a tip from personal experience: if you don’t know your time zone, look it up!
