Review for: STONE FOX - DEEP GREY WITH BLUE UNDERTONE more...
I’m somewhat torn on these. The coverage of Stone Fox, a very blue-toned gray, is decent but it does need some patience and work. Stone Fox is a gorgeous grey, and I love the color of it, but I’m not super crazy in love with the formula. Despite being marketed as a cream liquid lip, I find these leaning much more liquid than cream. They dry somewhat satin-matte, so they can move and smudge, but I guess that’s where the “suede” comes in in Liquid Suede. They’re kind of drying but not as badly as others I’ve tried, and not my die-hard favorite formula, but I didn’t have issues with crumbling so that’s a plus. These might be one of the more polarizing formulas on the market.
I absolutely adore these lipsticks. I have this in 1993, a very 90s nude. Super creamy without being slippery, comfortable, not drying but not particularly hydrating. It’s everything I want in a traditional lipstick. I’m madly in love with the color, it’s an excellent nude with lovely coverage when I want something a wee bit darker. I have the lipliner (I bought the duo pack) which pairs perfectly and is also creamy but that’s another review.
I have a very love-hate relationship with this foundation. It’s a matte, full coverage foundation; awesome, right? It oxidizes so badly that it’s not worth it for me. 0.5 starts out as a great shade for me, but then it goes orange after some time. Yikes. 4 stars for that coverage, but it’s a 3 for how it oxidizes and my other issue: the way it would become cakey looking after some time. It did wear pretty well, I will admit, but when it became cakey, it really just ruined it for me.
Sadly this didn’t work so hot for me. I liked the cream, but it all made my tattoo fade while it healed. The skin peeled off insanely fast, like 3 days later fast. Yikes. My friend who used it didn’t have this experience, so I think it’s just me. Even my artist was surprised.
I’m obsessed with this honestly. It’s easy to use, emulsifies quick and easy. My skin feels great after using it, since this isn’t a particularly harsh peel. Never see any dry patches after I use it, and I do personally feel my serum and moisturizer go on better after.
This is my first Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette and the packaging is massive, but I love it just the same. Neutrals, reds, purples, pinks, everything you could need. Some shades need to be built up (namely Root Canal and Prick), but they blend excellently and I don’t have much issue with application. I don’t personally mind having to build shades, because sometimes you want a little subtly. There is fallout but not horrific amounts; frankly, all shadow will have fallout. It’s not a deal breaker to me and I very much love this palette.
I need refills for this! Fawn is the perfect contour if you’re super pale. Mink is a bit dark but could be used if blended heavily and Shadow would be an excellent bronzer (but I don’t use bronzer). Soft Light and Fair I could likely conceal with, but I’ve never really tried. Lustre is nice if you like a dewy highlight but I don’t use it personally. It doesn’t blend super easily over powder so be warned, but it blends like a dream over just foundation or clean skin.
It’s okay. The contour and bronzer are decently pigmented, but kind of stiff. The highlight shades are worthless. This doesn’t really stick around, whether I layer it between my foundation and powder or on top of my powder. I much prefer NYX’s Taupe blush if I’m going to use a powder contour.
This is my holy grail foundation. 100 is a perfect match, since these oxidize just a little bit. This goes pretty easily up to full coverage, looks like skin and I don’t have much issue with it clinging to any dry patches. It’s a thinner, runnier formula than I’ve used before but it’s fantastic once you get used to it. It does set but not super fast. I work in sections personally, to make sure it’s all blended. It wears nicely, which is more than I can say about other foundations I’ve tried. I honestly love this foundation with all my heart and that’s hard to say for me.
