    Hello everyone! I put the new Jeffree Star x Morphe brush collection to the test, comparing it with brushes from AliExpress. I also try out the Morphe Fluidity Foundation, Concealer, Powder and Primer, and to top it off I also try the James Charles Palette!
    This is a full day wear test, so stick around till the end to see how the makeup held up (as well as to hear how to enter the giveaway). Yes, that's right, i'm giving away the James Charles Palette and the Jeffree Star Makeup Brush Collection!
    Let me know your thoughts and which side you think won. I think that the $7 brush set performed really well for the price! I also realised that I forgot to update you guys on the concealer right at the end. It held up much better than the foundation, because the concealer was still there under my eyes at the end of the day, and the foundation around it was all gone. That could also be because of the setting powder though. I'll try these items out on their own as well so I can come back and update you all later!

      Why would you want rectangular brows? That's a very frowned upon thing. Ppl with brows like that are considered trash at makeup and cringy. It's also very bad when ppl overline their brows like when there is no hair there and you are just drawing on your skin is a sign of you don't know how to do makeup. Arches are a good thing and it's good you gave yourself those. Don't be ignorant and over line you look silly.

    If you didn’t receive the sponges and they weren’t on your invoice then you clearly DIDN’T PUT THEM IN YOUR CART! The amount of shade and sly comments that you keep throwing out are so immature. Just admit that you forgot to put them in your cart. Your mistake. So frustrating to watch. 🤔😒

    You used his highlight brush wrong. Which is why the flatter one worked better for you. You're supposed to apply the product almost to the side of the brush and buff the side on your face. You don't use the direct tip like that. Also with foundation stipple to get rid of the streaks.

    Just like u don't want people to "come for you" for this video, I'm going to use it as an opportunity to speak my mind as well.... That bird is so annoyingly in the way....always. let Archie take a day or two off every now and than.

    • 2013dLo
      2013dLo Month ago

      But than again it's the same creepy, obsessive, wierdos wanting more of Archie. Or every video they make a suggestion on what he should do next... Boggles my mind

  • Ida Melien

    Pro tip! For a honest review you should use your daily makeup that you know works for you when you test out brushes/sponges. And brushes/sponges you would normally use to review new make-up. That way you know what product does or does not work. Right now it could be the powder, it could also be the brush. 🤷🏻‍♀️ we’ll never know.
    I love your videos btw! 😍 Archie too! I could never ever have a bird like that though, when I’m stressed out trying to put on my make-up.. girl
    I had a cockatiel when I was younger, and he was so light he just stood on my makeup brushes. Only problem, he only liked me.

    I don’t k ow if someone commented this but Jeffree released a video back in 2016 I believe with a sneak peek of the brushes that he said he was working on but since then people have started using that style. I don’t know if he is the ‘creator’ of the diamond handles on the brush but he was probably one of the firsts

    So it wasn't until watching this video..... that I realized why I love Archie so much. I have an Elf Ear Sphynx cat and she behaves JUST like him. Into EVERYTHING, trying to constantly 'help' me, opinions for days, and very involved in my videos. XDDD I love him almost as much as I love my cat.

    A few years ago when Jeffree originally was working on the collab with morphe to do a brush set he showed a quick sneak peak of them with those handles. He even shows that clip of the original sneak peak in the reveal video for this brush set. Not long after all these different sets started popping up with that handle design. Just like after the original unicorn brush set came out it didn’t take long for tons of of copycats, or any new unique beauty product that comes out, others are going to try to capitolize on it.

    I'm usually not someone who is about brand named makeup or 'special' eyeshadow, but I LOVE the James Charles palette. I do a lot of costuming in Cosplay, so I need colors and pigmented eye shadows especially in reds and pinks and purples and blues and blacks, and THIS palette is one I ACTUALLY enjoy. I love the colors and I love the pigmentation. And I'm hard to please.........

I think you're great at doing makeup, better than me 🤓 Oh yeah, I'm not happy with Morphe at all. I ordered the Jeffree Star brush set from morphe on Feb 8th & they DOUBLE CHARGED ME & I never got my brushes, my foundation, my js beauty blenders & setting spray. It was almost $200. I hate that store.. BTW I'm 46. I only said that cause you said you looked like a 40 year old 😏 anywho I really like your content &.the brushes I've been wondering about those as well, if they were the same cause I couldn't afford js brushes. I got that$$ for my birthday. Ok, I'm done🤓😂😂😂
