Hi Darlings, in today’s post Julia and I are going to chat about the NEW Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Cremated Collection for Spring 2020.
This collection is very controversial, I know Jeffree is usually in the centre of those but this is the first time her makeup line has received so much hate both because people thought the colours of the palette were boring and because the death theme during this period was considered a bit insensitive.
We are also going to talk a little about that but we definitely want to hear what you think of it because Julia and I spent an evening discussing it.
The collection launched on the 22nd and it’s available on jeffreestarcosmetics.com
Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Cremated Collection: PRODUCTS
Due to Covid19, the collection is a bit smaller than his usual ones with only the eyeshadow palette and four glosses.
There are a few accessories we are not going to cover here because I’d rather have the post focused on the makeup but there are two makeup bags and a set of metal straws too.
The Gloss (18$ each)
It comes in four shades:
- Heaven’s Gate (sheer icy kiss of glistening white sparkles)
- Coroner’s Kiss (sheer tint of mysterious grey with gold sparkles)
- Funeral Parlor (sheer gunmetal with glistening white sparkles)
- Six Feet Under (sheer tint of luxurious black, with icy white sparkles)
Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Cremated Collection: OUR THOUGHTS
MIMI: I don’t particularly hate grey, I like cool-toned eyeshadows and I like grey on me but I rarely use it. For that reason only I wouldn’t get the palette. I like the marble packaging a lot and the cover photo reminds me of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way era which I love.
What I really don’t like is that the last two rows of the palette look so similar, I wouldn’t need that many shades of the same matte grey, and the price is wayyyy too high. I honestly think this palette should have been a 9pans one. I don’t like the shades of the gloss at all so I won’t buy them.
Now, the “theme”, I honestly don’t mind it, my dad was cremated and it doesn’t bother me at all. A lot of people thought it was offensive because a lot of people died with Covid19 but it’s just makeup and I don’t think he made it to offend anyone so why see an offence when is clear that it wasn’t meant like that?
JULIA: I find grey a sad colour, in general, but especially in makeup. When you look at the palette is not even ugly, but I would never use it. So many colours are the same. The packaging is terrible, I don’t like palettes with faces on top.
For the same reasons I don’t like the glosses.
I think that call it “Cremated” is quite tacky in this period, with all names that recall cemeteries, death… Mah, I would have avoided it.
