An Out of This World Collection
Despite the beauty community constantly being up in flames from controversial releases, copyright-questionable mimicking, and general criticisms from the endemic racial insensitivity from influencers and brands alike, Jeffree Star seems to be the one brand and influencer withstanding it all.
His releases of Blood Sugar and Thirsty were as successful as could be, both selling out before I could get my hands on them. And on November 9th, he debuted a highly-anticipated collection: Alien.
As seen below, the concept is absolutely cool and really sticks itself out from the many unicorn, fairy, and cutesy-themed releases.
The collection itself is a colorful, space-inspired one containing lip scrubs, bullet lipstick, some liquid lips, and a palette. Of course, the packaging takes things to another level, breaking away from the regular rectangular palette shape. Jeffree opted for an alien-head shape (and Estee Laundry, of course, gave him a call out, as it resembles a palette from Hot Topic).
The palette comes with 18 shades, with metallics, mattes, and a color story that beats the boredom of the constant warm-brown nude palettes that are flooding Sephora. The palette retails for $52 and has the same reliable formula of his former palettes. The glittery shades have a duo-chrome shift, which will for sure step up your makeup game.
I’m mostly excited for the lip scrubs, which Jeffree Star Cosmetics has won my heart over. His lip scrubs smell and taste true to their names, and he with this new release he is introducing new lip scrubs such as pumpkin pie and eggnog. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer if you’re looking to holiday gift shop early!
I purchased two products from this line and am currently loving them. The Salted Caramel lip scrub and the liquid lip in “Jeffree Who?” are my most recent obsessions. Both are the highest quality products I’ve used in a while, bold and unique, finally breaking away from my inveterate loyalty to Glossier.
I’d recommend Jeffree’s release video to really get yourself hyped for this collection.
