Jeffree Star Cosmetics | Skin Frost Review

Hi Beauties!

If you don’t know who Jeffree Star is, then I’m going to assume that you have been living under a rock for the past few years! Although he is constantly surrounded by controversy and drama, there is no denying that he has been smashing it when it comes to his cosmetic line (his liquid lipstick formula is without a doubt the best I have ever tried). Back in May 2015 Jeffree released his Skin Frost line and has been continuously adding more shades throughout the last year. Some of the shades are a little out there, but the best part is that almost all of the shades are eye safe; as well as vegan and cruelty-free; meaning that you can actually use these products as eyeshadows as well. The Skin Frost line will set you back $29 USD per product (approx. $38 AUD), if you are buying within the US, shipping is free for orders over $100, but for me here in Australia, shipping set me back $10.95 USD (approx. $14.41).

I have seen hundreds of positive reviews on the Skin Frost line, as well as an equal amount of negative reviews. The negative reviews on this line are the main reason I never really found myself wanting to try any of these products, as well as the price to get them in Australia. However, I took advantage of the rare sales that Jeffree Star places on his website and ordered 4 Skin Frost shades to try out and share my thoughts on with you guys. So, let’s get into swatching and reviewing!

Firstly, let me start by saying the size of the compact the Skin Frosts come in is huge! (It barely fits in the palm of my hand). Secondly, the colour of the products in the compacts are also impressive however, I feel like the finger swatches are what really lets them down. What you can’t see from the photos is that all the shades were super powdery. After each swatch I was having to scrub my finger as the powder from the products would stick and clump up each time, the worst shade in relation to this being Ice Cold. Princess Cut was probably the least pigmented shade out of the 4, I had to work a little more product onto my finger in order for it to show up nicely in the swatches.

The big question for me would be, am I going to purchase any more of the Skin Frost range? My honest answer would be no, not unless I saw a shade that really made me fall in love, and even then, not unless the shades were to go on sale again. The shades are very powdery when applied on the skin they can bring out any imperfections. They are a little more on the expensive side, and I feel as though I can get the same quality out of a less expensive product.

Have you tried out any Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost line? How did they work for you? Leave me a comment and let me know! 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!
