Jeffree Star Magic Star Concealer & Setting Powder Review

One of my favourite You Tubers Jeffree Star recently released two new additions to his makeup line, the Magic Star Liquid Concealer and the Magic Star Setting Powder. I, of course had to order them, and try them out and give you my thoughts on them.
There are 32 shades of the Jeffree Star Magic Star Liquid Concealer available including a pure white, and two colour neutralisers - a green and a peach. I would have loved to get the peach as it is great for concealing darkness under the eyes but unfortunately it was sold out, as were quite a lot of the fairer shades. I ended up ordering the shade C11 which says it is for medium skin with rose undertones, and I probably could have done with a shade or two lighter, but this is still fine as due to me having quite light skin, it is better for me to choose a concealer shade that matches my foundation. The packaging is stunning, and in true Jeffree Star style, with a faceted tube, chrome gold, a large pink 'diamond' and a little gold star on the top. I must admit that the little star does dig into my palm when I am removing the top but that's a minor issue. The wand has a sponge applicator, which has a little hole in to gather plenty of product and I must say that even going on the concealer alone, I cannot wait to try Jeffree's foundation when it is released. This gives you full coverage, it isn't greasy or oily, and it dries down matte without looking chalky. It can dry down quite quickly, so I would recommend blending it in an eye at a time just so that you can get the best from the concealer. The Magic Star Concealer retails for £21.00 and you do get 3.4ml of product so I think this is a fair price compared to other concealers and even though it isn't the cheapest, it certainly works amazingly well.
Moving on to the Jeffree Star Magic Star Setting Powder, this comes in eight shades and I was a little unsure whether to go for Fair or Rose. Fair is recommended for Fair to Light skin tones with natural undertones, and Rose is recommended for Fair to Light skin tones with rosy undertones, and I probably should have gone for Rose, but I played it safe and went for Fair. You get 10g of the Setting Powder, which comes in a transparent pot with a reddish pink chrome lid complete with 3D Jeffree Star logo. Once you unscrew the lid, there is a section which you can open or close, to ensure product doesn't escape if you are travelling with it. The powder does smell faintly of cotton candy which I think is really cute and the powder is really finely milled so it doesn't settle in clumps on the face. I have combination skin and I find that when I use this Setting Powder, I don't get any oiliness on an afternoon which is when I would normally see it start to appear and it locks my makeup in place all day long. Just like the Concealer, this too costs £21.00 which is higher than a drugstore Setting Powder, but a lot less than a higher end version. I paid £42.00 for the Hourglass Veil Setting Powder, and this one works just as well for half the price.
