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 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!
