Jeffree Star x Manny Mua Eclipse highlighter review

Hi honeys! I know a lot of people have been really excited for the Jeffree Star xManny MUA collab so I’m super excited to review it for you all! I had no trouble picking one up here in Australia. I went straight on the Black Swallow website and was surprised they had all of the Jeffree Star x Manny Mua collaboration in stock! I ordered, used Afterpay and it was here in around 4 days.

So, when the highlighter was first announced I wasn’t won over and it didn’t wow me, but as I saw the swatches and video reviews on it I started to like it! I thought it was quite pretty being an pale icy peach colour and decided I would order one for a review.

The Packaging:
The compact/highlighter is huuuge and I LOVE the packaging! Anyone who knows me knows how much I love black and holographic anything so this was the ultimate packaging for me. The compact has quite a big mirror inside and the powder has the Jeffree Star Cosmetics logo and the Manny Mua moon logo embossed in it. It retails for US $29 on the Jeffree Star Cosmetics website (www.jefreestarcosmetics.com) but as I said I picked this up from the Black Swallow website and paid around $43 AUS.

The product:  My first swatch thoughts were that it was gritter than I thought it would be and not as finely milled as other highlighters (say Mary-Lou Manizer by TheBalm) but damn it was BLINDING! I have no fake tan on and am super pale and the highlighter was a pretty similar colour to my actual skin tone which did make it a little hard to photograph so i did a few comparison swatches. I think this highlighter is would probably suit a more pale skin tone but it could also be used as a poppin’ inner corner highlight too!
I also didn’t experience much fallout – bonus.

All of Jeffree Star Cosmetics are also vegan and cruelty free which I thought was super important to mention.

 

Thoughts: I actually really liked the highlighter, I feel for me its pretty multi use in my kit and it was a lot prettier in real life then in the pictures. Im happy to have a more ice peach shade in my collection!

  1. Like you, I wasn’t hugely wow’d by this shade but I am toying with the idea of buying it because so many people say it’s great for pale skin babes.
    I looks really pretty on you

  2. I’m debating on whether or not I should get it! After seeing your comparison with the Mary Lou manizer I definitely think it would still suit my skin tone! I love peachy shades! The Nicole guerreiro peach shades in her palette were way too peachy for me. Looks almost like blush so this highlighter from jeffree actually looks perfect.

    Damnit Katie, lol you just talked me into buying the bundle. 😂😩

    😘❤️
