Jeffree Star Skin Frost Highlighters Review & Swatches
There's really only one thing that could make me so excited that I feel the need to jump up & down in public- NEW MAKEUP. So I'm sure you could imagine my excitement when these babies landed in my mailbox over the weekend. Jeffree Star just launched his new highlighter formula, Skin Frost, and his new eyeshadow palette, Beauty Killer. Luckily, I was able to grab all 4 of his new highlighter shades before they sold out (which was pretty much instantly!). The Beauty Killer Palette slipped through my little grabby hands, but I vow to get it during his next restock.
Let's move into discussing the Skin Frost Highlighters. They come in a VERY large, plastic compact with a generously-sized mirror. The compact feels a little clunky in the hand, and the size makes it a little tricky to hold onto (I've almost dropped mine a few times now). However, I will not harp on the clumsiness of the packaging at all, because there is a very obvious reason why the compacts are so large: they hold a TON of product. You get 15 GRAMS of product (yes, FIFTEEN)! Putting that into perspective, a typical blush comes with about 6g of product, while a typical highlighter comes with about 9g of product. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed comes with 8g of product, Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator comes with 9g of product, and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder comes with 10g of product, just for reference.
In terms of the formula, it's FANTASTIC. Extremely buttery, pigmented, and blendable. Honestly, I can't say a single negative thing about it. The texture and pigmentation are very reminiscent of the Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows. As far as other highlighters on the market, the formula most resembles the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in terms of the creaminess and the pigmentation, although I feel like the texture of these may be even more dense (in a good way!). With that being said, I've heard that some people have trouble getting the Becca highlighters to last on their skin all day. I've never had any issues with the longevity of either formula (Jeffree Star or Becca), but that's something you may want to keep in mind.
All four of the colors that Jeffree Star released are pretty much flawless. I'm really excited to see a wide variety for all skin tones. Here are the four shades I have:
Ice Cold- An icy, white-based silver. Perfect for pale to light complexions.
Peach Goddess- A light rose gold. Perfect for light to medium complexions.
King Tut- A medium-dark copper bronze. Perfect for medium-tan to deep complexions.
Mint Condition- A frosted mint green. Perfect for anyone who is tired of "ordinary" highlight colors and wants something unique!
Now onto the full swatches!
And one more picture in the sun, just for good measure!

I can't wait to see what other colors of Skin Frost Jeffree Star has in store for us in the future, but for now, I am blown away by his initial release. Congratulations, Jeffree, and keep 'em coming!
