Manic Panic Collection {Review}

More well known for their bold hair colors, Tish and Snooky (sisters and singers in the original Blondie lineup) also have a Manic Panic collection which includes a lot of great cosmetic items. 

Their eyeshadows are vegan and cruelty free and did I mention super adorable? If you are a music lover or child of the 80s, these are going to just make your day! I was so excited to get the chance to test out this brand and was giddy when I saw the awesome cassette tape compact which retails for only $12 and includes 2 shadows. I got the  Pretty in Punk eye shadow compact Side B which contains the below silver and blue colors. The shadows are magnetic and exchangeable.

About: This collection features an 80’s influenced refillable eyeshadow palette that is shaped like a cassette tape. This compact is perfect for a night out on the town since it can replace a clutch. The cassette tape compact has a mirror and a wristlet and features a small pull out drawer for your money, cards, and ID. Compacts are also available blank and can be filled with any of our eyeshadow shades, inspiring you to create your own 80’s mix tape! Manic Panic Eyeshadows are highly pigmented, long-wearing and easy to blend. From http://www.manicpaniccollection.com/
I may be missing it but this is suppose to have a forget me knot strap so you can use this as a clutch since there is a hidden drawer to stash a card or cash. There is also a small mirror and brush included. 
Hidden cash stash!
Magnetic pans are interchangeable 
Refill eyeshadows for the kit in Corraline Dream (pink) and Purple rain. Retails $4/each. 
Magnets hold these in place. 
I am extremely impressed with the pigmentation and ease of use of these colors. There was minimal to no fall out, these were easy to blend and easy to apply. These were really creamy and good quality, especially for $4/each, I think these are an amazing value. 
Mystic Heather lipstick 
About: Lip locked and loaded Manic Panic’s smoldering shades of lipstick make a dramatic impact! Leaving no shade unturned, Manic Panic’s assortment of colors and textures tempt you to stray from an otherwise predicable palette. The luxuriously creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with vitamins A, C and E.

Pretty, fun and cool Manic Panic’s lip locked lipstick offers bold, vibrant colors from a matte to shimmer finish. The silky smooth formula diminishes fine lines and creases while moisturizing your perfect pout. One application is all you need to deliver the perfect amount of color pay off. Ensure complete versatility and total confidence with this vitamin rich lipstick. Packed with antioxidants it’s the perfect accessory to create your total look. Keeping in perfect Manic Panic integrity, these enigmatic colors are 100% vegan and cruelty free. So don’t wait a minute longer, unlock the color and prove that lips form a powerful message!! From

I love this color and if you put it over gloss or a balm, you can tone down the color if needed. The formula is very smooth and moisturizing and has great staying power. This retails for $8 so its a great find for not that much money! The color is really vibrant and pigmented. As you can see below when I used makeup remover, there were some remnants which can attest to the staying power. The only issues I had is that I had to do a lip scrub in order to wear this without the dry skin on my lips being made more apparent. It has been below zero here all week, so my lips are not in the best condition. Also if you have an insane amount of lipsticks like I do, I found the packaging although adorable to be a little bulky and wide. Maybe its just me but I have a drawer and another container over flowing with lip product so space is at a premium for me. 
You can see the remnants after 3 swipes of a makeup remover.
I always listen to music while blogging and I thought it was especially fitting for this review! Here I am at 12am in all my glory :) And the lipstick is still going strong. I was wearing this with a sparkly purple liner and mascara. I like pairing a bright lip with a simple eye look. 

Thoughts? I was super excited to bring this to you guys and you know when you see a lot of pictures like this that I was really inspired by the product and I hope you all are too! 

Yours In Trubeauty, 

Jessica
