Jeffree Star Jawbreaker Collection: Pink & White Hand Mirrors, Pink Travel Bag and Pineapple Juice Velour Lip Scrub Review

Not Sponsored: I hope everyone is having a lovely Summer. I've been enjoying myself. I've purchased a lot of "Summery" things and would like to share my thoughts about them with you for the next couple of weeks. This is my second purchase from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. If you want to know my feelings about him and his past behavior, please read this post. I will say, I think he's done a lot better. He almost took the low road again, when he and Tati Westbrook ganged up against YouTuber James Charles. As a matter of fact, I was so turned off that I un-followed him on Instagram. He mentioned he doesn't want to get involved in situations like that in the future. That could be true or maybe he stopped because he didn't want to be sued. We will probably never know the truth about that situation. But what I do know, is that for the most part the truth always comes out. I remain watchful. I believe in forgiveness and second chances. I understand people fall off the wagon sometimes. I understand that I'm more understandable then some. As a reviewer of makeup and skincare, I try to remain unbiased. Jeffree came out with a Jawbreaker Collection (Summer 2019). I think everyone is familiar with jawbreaker candy. I tried one once as a child. Lovely to look at, but a pain to eat. LOL Well I instantaneously fell visually in love with this collection! I wasn't in love with the makeup (its just not my taste or color palette) but I loved the pastel splattered-colors of the accessories (hand mirrors and makeup/travel bag). I was also interested in one of the lip scrubs. The two mirrors and travel bag below are sold out on his site. They sold out super quick. I did some quick thinking and remembered that his products were also sold on a UK site called Beauty Bay. They ship to the United States and also offer free delivery after $50 USD. When you're a beauty enthusiast, its good to know where different brands are sold. Especially when something is in demand. Its good to have options. So while everyone was saying it's sold out! Its sold out! I was on the Beauty Bay website. The lip scrub is still available on both sites. His products are also sold on Beautylish and Morphe. Below are my thoughts.

Jeffree Star | Pink & White Jawbreaker Hand Mirrors - Supersweet
I missed out on his popsicle collection last year. I can get the creamsicle mirror on ebay but the firecracker bomb pop mirror is what I'm after. It's not on eBay! I'm still hopeful. Well, I'm glad I didn't miss out on these mirrors. I love both the pink & white version. The colors remind me of the vintage jawbreaker candy. They're very well crafted, sturdy and you can see the majority of your face which is great. The quality is excellent and they look great in my makeup room.

Jeffree Star | Pink Jawbreaker Travel Bag - Supersweet
He has a number of makeup/travel bags. I use my Kate Spade one all the time. Its the biggest one I have and I wanted another one around that size. So when I saw this one I knew I had to have it. It's super soft. Lovely pink with splattered paint colors. You can zip this bag to the front, side and back. It has a handle. When you open it up, there's a zipped netted compartment on the lid (never seen that before) and wonderful space in the body of the makeup/travel bag. I haven't used it yet, but can tell it holds a lot. Its a treat for the eyes and will work nicely as a makeup bag.

Jeffree Star | Pineapple Juice Velour Lip Scrub - Sweet
I'm always excited to see what special edition lip scrubs Jeffree Star comes out with when he introduces a collection. I think it keeps it fresh and exciting. I was only interested in one "flavor". Pineapple Juice is a delicious tropical blend. It's like pineapple and other fruits mixed together. A cocktail of sorts. His lip scrubs are pretty dense. They're thick. They do a great job exfoliating. It kind of lacks on providing a lot of moisture. There's some moisture, but don't expect a lot. Great taste as usual. You guys know my absolute favorite lip scrubs are from Sara Happ, Micki Song Cosmetics, Lush, Fresh and Half Caked. But I can't resist the different flavors he comes up with. So, that is what I purchased.
