Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Reds and Pinks Bundle (Love Sick Collection)

The Jeffree Star Cosmetics Love Sick collection dropped a few weeks ago and it went quick! The Blood Sugar Palette sold out 100,000 units in 3 minutes, which is absolutely insane! I wasn’t able to get my hands on the Blood Sugar palette (which looks beautiful) but I did grab the Mini Reds & Pinks Bundle and I am really exited about it!!!

I reviewed and swatched the Mini Nudes Bundle Vol. 1 that came out a few months ago and I absolutely loved it! I still wear a lot of those shades to this day and I haven’t run out of product in any of them. (See my previous blog post “Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Nude Vol.1 Swatches & Review” for more on that bundle) That post discussed the packing and pricing, which is the exact same for this bundle (except red) so I am not going to touch on that too much, just a quick rundown.

Pricing

This set is $52 for 8 mini Velour Liquid Lipsticks, which makes them $6.50 each. For a high end brand like Jeffree Star Cosmetics, this is a fantastic price. I know something over $50 seems like a lot for makeup but if you wear liquid lipsticks often this is definitely a great deal for 8 shades! The shipping was $5.95, which is typical for beauty products.

Packaging

The bundle come packaged in a really nice box which has individual slots to showcase the lipsticks. I absolutely love the attention to detail this company includes with their launches. This box is gorgeous, sturdy and overall makes the product feel even more high end.

Shades

Mini Reds & Pink Bundle includes 8 shades:

  • Doll Parts
  • Calabasas
  • Wifey
  • Watermelon Soda
  • Anna Nicole
  • Prom Night
  • Redrum
  • Unicorn Blood

Texture

All of these shades are the traditional Velour Liquid Lipstick formula- matte and opaque! These wear so beautifully on the lips. I would recommend a lip scrub first to remove dead skin before any liquid lipsticks (see my previous post “Prepping for Liquid Lipsticks” for more on extending wear time and comfortability with matte liquid lipsticks).

Swatches

I know these swatches are far from perfect, but I wanted to try something new by show these on the lips, instead of my normal arm swatches!

The timing of this post is pretty coincidental, being that Jeffree Star Cosmetics Instagram shared a photo of my swatches yesterday! I am over the moon that they saw my post and like it enough to repost. Here’s the screenshot of their page with my post!!!!

I am so beyond excited! I did these swatches pretty quick (and now I’m wishing I had taken more time to make it perfect and less messy), but I’m just so ecstatic that Jeffree Star’s team reposted it! I used each shade to write a letter, starting from the shade of the far left and working across the set.

Overall

These bundles are awesome. I’m a sucker for travel sized products in general so of course I’m drawn to mini Jeffree Star Lipsticks since they are my favorite Liquid Lipsticks. The colors are so unique, the formula is fantastic and the price isn’t overwhelming for the amount of product you receive. Hands down, I would recommend this to any red lipstick lover.

Has anyone else grabbed this bundle or anything from the Love Sick Collection? Let me know in the comments, Im so curious about the items I didn’t grab this time around!

Ipsy Member Rewards

If you have Ipsy, make sure you’re using your reward points! I didn’t know about this for a while and now that I do, I’ve already earned enough to redeem them for makeup! 


If you’re unfamiliar with this Ipsy rewards program, listen up! Every month, after you open your Ipsy bag, you can go on the website to review each item. The review ask 2-3 questions per product, usually “How much do you like this brand?” “How much do you like this product” and occasional “How much do you like the color”. The scale you are basing your answer on is little emoji smiley faces, super cute! There’s a small box if you want to leave a comment, but you don’t have to. 

Each review earns you +15 points. You can also do a review of the bag overall, which gives you +10 points. Here’s an example of the points I earned for March


There are other ways to earn points, such as following certain bloggers on IG or YouTube. You can also recommend a friend to subscribe and get 250 points! 

Once you get enough points, you can redeem them! Just be warned, these sell out QUICK! I had to check the website pretty often, but I did find his beauty for 400 so I redeemed some of my points! 

I haven’t received it yet, it will be shipped with my April Ipsy bag. I am very happy I found out this rewards program when I did! Reviewing these products helps the company know what the costumer wants, so why not give your personal feedback?!
