I recently received the Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss in Candy Drip from the Valentine’s Day Deluxe Mystery Box and I could not be happier with this product! I think I’ve found my new signature lip gloss!
Last Summer I had gotten the small Jeffree Star Cosmetics mystery box and wasn’t super thrilled with the Velour Liquid Lipstick mainly because I’m not a fan of any liquid lipstick and I got the shade Restraints which is a cool-toned grey with a metallic finish and a big yuck on me as far as color is concerned!
Luckily I gave Jeffree Star Cosmetics another try because I know from experience that I’m not going to love every product a company makes. So when I got the Valentine’s Day box with The Gloss I was more than happy to give it a try. From the first swipe I was in love.
First up, the packaging is gorgeous! It comes in a tall regal tube that feel heavy and luxurious so an A+ for the container!
The formula itself is perfect — not too thick, not to thin and not sticky or goopy. My Candy Drip shade (tinted pink with pink & blue shift pearls) glided over my 50-year-old lips like a dream and looked amazing on my face. I even had a stranger compliment my shade. I did wear it over my Urban Decay Amulet lipstick because I need a little extra shade, but it also looks amazing alone. My lips literally sparkled as the formula is luminescent! ! As a bonus it smells like light vanilla crème brûlé!
Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss currently comes in 18 shades with a price tag of $18 each. I really want to try the shades Ice Cold: sheer with purple & blue shift pearls and Shockwave: light bronze tint with pink & white pearls next.
On Feb 21st Jeffree Star Cosmetics is also launching the Blood Lust collection with 5 exclusive The Gloss shades in a purple chrome packaging.
The shades include:
Iridescent Throne – Pale icy lavender with blue and purple reflects.
Lord Star – Fuchsia with blue and purple reflects.
Sickening – Periwinkle with gold and pink reflects.
Sorcery – Light peach with pink, purple and blue reflects.
Wizards Glass – Bronze with pink and gold reflects and a minor purple reflect.
Hello Harry Potter inspired! I think I need all 5 of these shades.
