The pink religion collection from Jeffree Star Cosmetics came as most of his collections were surrounded with drama this one was portrayed mirroring the Catholic religion. I usually don’t care about the drama but this one did annoy me I am not Christian but was raised like one and felt was bad taste to do that on his part towards offending Catholics. This is my favorite brand! I felt turned off 😑
Holaa beautiful you out there! Days go so fast right! My week was good, I have been enjoying creating makeup looks and diving into reels on Instagram haha I have seen there really nice people that share the love for the beauty world. How was your week? Are you excited about this new month? Spooky season is here 👻 let’s start this episode 🙃
First of all, do you know what an Indie brand is? I did not until last year 😳 and let me tell you I love Indie brands they are amazing! An Indie brand is independently owned and operated by an owner not owned by a parent company some are handmade. In my experience so far with Indie brands, I found their formulas are really good even better I would dare say than mainstream brands. The mattes are more pigmented and shimmers are what dreams are made of! They are a true contender to Mainstream brands. 💪
Jeffree Star through his Chanel introduce me to his world full of color and pigment that I have not seen at the drugstores where I would buy always my makeup back in the day, and open the door to indie brands 🙃 Since Jeffree star cosmetics is my favorite brand even though I have found other indie brands that do make me rethink if JSC is still my favorite brand, well for now just for the lipsticks alone it is so I decided to start reviews of makeup I have bought with JSC cosmetics.
I am not a cancel culture type of person I value the quality of the products and not make it about the person behind the brand so even though I felt turned off I decided to go with my beliefs and bought the Pink religion palette along with 3 lipsticks and the setting spray from the collection. I must confess I said my prayers to our creator asking for forgiveness due to not wanting to offend.
I had played with the palette and got a good feel to it. I do like the colors in it I feel some colors are a bit repetitive like the purples, a brighter orange would be nice. The palette could have been smaller, I think is too many for a pink monochromatic palette it can feel daunting to think about what to do with so many or confined if that makes sense.
The mattes are good they are easy to blend and are pigmented. Saint star needed to be built up a little this is because I have medium skin so a white base helps. The shimmers are ok not mind-blowing sparkly or super fairy-like shiny. One thing you should know about me is that I Ioveee high shine super sparkly out of this world shimmers 😎. The palette claims to have a duo-chrome finish on one of its shimmers and that is for Princess Crown had well is super subtle and I barely see it other indie brands do blow your mind with duo-chrome shimmers but looks beautiful as an inner corner highlight. My favorite shimmer in this palette is Candy Cathedral is really beautiful.
Here are the swatches of this palette on my medium skin tone arm, forgive me I am not a pro in arm swatches 🙈 and a video 😊
The lipsticks I bought I like and don’t like haha I am not a big fan of his velvet trap formula and to be more clear some colors are creamy and pigmented while others are patchy and weird in this purchase I got both types. Confessional was the best in an application for me creamy and pigmented. Always faithful is creamy and just a little patchy but fixed with building it up a bit more. But Pink Messiah is terrible at least on my lips is patchy and will not look all good with building up I don’t know if lighter colors like these are hard to make but I think he should sell colors like this when he finds the perfect formula. I prefer his liquid lipsticks over this formula even though some of his liquid lipsticks are not perfect when applied.
Swatches of the lippies I bought
I also bought the Holy mist setting spray. I like that you don’t need to shake it every time you apply. The smell is not as good, smells okay but not out of this world wonderful wish the smell would be a bit stronger. The mist sprays too little I have to spray a lot to get the amount I want on my face.
Overall I do like the Pink religion Palette is nice and one can make some cute looks with it. Wish Jeffree will do non-monochromatic palettes to have more possibilities with it when creating looks but I do recommend this palette to buy. The lipsticks I could pass in my opinion best to buy his liquid lipsticks and I also would pass on the setting spray, you can find better choices in the market. I would rate my recommendation from 1 to 10 an 8
I did three looks for you and I am including how I planned them with drawings haha. You see I plan the looks for the week on the weekends, I write them on my phone notes and if needed I would draw the idea. This is to save time in the mornings, I have a full-time job so the time when getting ready counts I save the thinking part by having it all planned out 😇
First look: I did a very simple look I tend to do this on Mondays since are the hardest for me in the sense of starting the week after the weekend like getting up late and running against time to be on time at work! haha. I only put the shadow under the waterline at the bottom lash did a splashed color moment at the bottom. Here are the steps I wrote like a tutorial and the final look.
Second look: I did some lines in the outer corner area and focused mostly on the corner. Here is the drawing I did to remind me how I pictured it lol, the mini tutorial and final look.
Third look: I also did some lines like lashes among lashes kinda look haha. Here is the drawing, the mini-tutorial, and the end look.
And there you go gorgeous! I hope you liked this episode. I will review more palettes in the upcoming episodes I will do for the remainder of October Halloween or spooky themed palettes I bought for my collection 👻
