I have been wanting to purchase from Jeffree Star Cosmetics for quite some time now, but I just never have. I’ve been watching Jeffree on YouTube for a while now, and have seen numerous videos featuring the line, but I just never made that decision to purchase! When the Summer Chrome collection came around, I fell in love with the packaging and knew I HAD to have something from it.
If you aren’t familiar with Jeffree Star Cosmetics, it is a line of beauty products featuring the infamous Velour Liquid Lipsticks, Velour Lip Scrubs, Lip Ammunitions, blinding Skin Frosts, and two (soon to be three) eyeshadow palettes.
The most recent collection — the Summer Chrome Collection — includes everything except an eyeshadow palette. There are:
- 2 Skin Frosts (Summer Snowcone and Crystal Ball) — $29 each
- 3 Velour Lip Scrubs (Watermelon Gum, Blue Raspberry Sucker, and Orange Soda) — $12 each
- 5 Lip Ammos (Star Witness, Birthday Suit, Birkin Suede, Thick As Thieves, and Skin Tight) — $18 each
- 8 Velour Liquid Lipsticks (Calabasas, Candyass — sold out, Family Jewels, Butt Naked, You. Better. Work., Hunty, Venus Flytrap, Flamboyant) — $18 each
- You. Better. Work. Liquid Lipstick Collection featuring all 8 Velour Liquid Lipsticks — $105
- The Lipstick Vault: Chrome Collection featuring all 8 Velour Liquid Lipsticks and all 5 Lip Ammos — $195.00
One of the great things about the collection that I love is the fact that all of the prices are the same as the products in the regular line. It’s nice that they didn’t hike up the price just because it’s a summer chrome collection!
Now, for what I actually got and what I thought about the whole process. I ordered from the collection the day that it was released — June 24, 2017. I received my shipping confirmation email two days later — June 26, 2017. I was super excited to see that it was shipping so fast! BUT, I didn’t receive my order until almost 3 weeks later — July 14, 2017. After attempting to contact the company a few times in between then, I finally found out that my package had gone missing. They offered to either refund me or send out a new package. I chose for them to send me a new one, because I really was excited to get it! They sent it out immediately after I confirmed my email, and must have threw in free 2-day shipping because I got it just two days later.
Although the whole process of trying to contact them and my package going missing was frustrating at the time, I don’t hold any bad feelings toward the company at all. Accidents happen and I’m sure they were extremely busy with all of the popularity of the summer chrome collection! I’m very grateful that they resolved the issue for me and shipped me out my package.
The three products I ordered from the collection were: a Velour Lip Scrub in Blue Raspberry Sucker, a Velour Liquid Lipstick in Hunty, and a Lip Ammunition in Skin Tight.
I’m obsessed with the lip scrub. I get really dry lips, and so far the scrub has done a really great job of fixing that for me (we’ll see how it does during the winter months, though)! It tastes and smells SO yummy… it’s one of the ones that you can lick off of your lips, which I absolutely love because it’s so much easier.
I also really like the Lip Ammunition. It’s not something I’ll be reaching for all the time, but it’s a gorgeous color and I was surprised to see how pigmented it is. Most lipsticks I own are pretty sheer, but this one isn’t at all! It wears pretty long, but comes off very easily when you eat, which is to be expected with a lipstick.
Lastly, I got the liquid lipstick. If I’m being completely honest, the color wasn’t my favorite from the collection, but I really needed it for the name because I love it. Lol! I’m really not a huge fan of the color on me, but it would be nice on someone else. However, I am a HUGE fan of the formula. In my opinion, it’s not too drying, and it lasts SO long. You have to physically scrub it off yourself if you want it coming off! I will definitely be buying more in the future in colors that I actually want.
I wish that I would have bought a skin frost, but I will definitely be buying one in the future!
Did you buy anything from the Summer Chrome Collection — or Jeffree Star Cosmetics in general? What are your opinions? I’d love to hear them!
