Jeffree Star: Velour Liquid Lipstick

7.6.16




Top - Celebrity Skin, Bottom - Gemini.

The lip products that I've been lusting after (for longer than I care to admit)finally landed on my door last weekend. Jeffree Star first came on my radar after my weekly YouTube session, when I saw him on NikkieTutorials' channel.  A quick browse of his channel and the love affair began, albeit with majority all the love coming from my end.

To get my hands on my Velour Liquid Lipsticks was not easy. I was constantly stalking any Jeffree Star social media to find out about the next re-stock, and when I eventually found one I set many alarms to ensure I got my hands on the shades I wanted. Although I was advised not to - I ordered the products directly from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. The postage was only £7 ($10) so I wasn't too worried about having to spend customs as the postage had come in much cheaper than planned. However, when they arrived I didn't have to pay anything - huzzah! I was quite possibly the happiest girl in Liverpool. 

I ordered the shades Gemini and Celebrity Skin which are both highly sought after and both from the more nude spectrum of the shades on offer. I was delighted to open the classic pink packaging to discover the products smell incredible. And the formula is so thin and easy to apply. The applicator isn't like that of a normal gloss, it has a little curve in the tip that allows the product to be perfectly applied across the lips. And speaking of the product - it applies like a dream. One sweep across the lips offers a fully opaque colour, I am talking pigment for days! And a massive perk of being a liquid means you're not dragging it across the lips constantly (like some of my usual matte bullets). 

The shades are both so flattering on the skin - Jeffree doesn't lie when he said they're made to suit any skin tone. And although the formula is incredibly matte when dry, it doesn't dehydrate my lips, and it really lasts. After eating and drinking I did find a small amount of product came off from the centre of my lips - but it wasn't enough that it was extremely noticeable. 

All in all I'm so happy with my purchases - sure they took a little longer to come than they would've had I ordered them from the UK, but over all the pricing wasn't that different. My first liquid lipsticks have gone down extremely well, now to keep my eyes peeled for the next re-stock! 

What's your take on liquid lipsticks? A. xo

    1. I know I literally had to stalk all Jeffree's social medial to get them! They're a little drying (as all mattes are) but nothing compared to the likes of Ruby Woo by MAC and they don't go bitty because of them being liquid. They're amazing! xx

    1. They're both so flattering! I'm desperate for Rose Matter too but I'm also toying with the idea of a bold one next. I'm loving the look of Prom Night but not sure if I'd wear it as much as a neutral. xx
