BLUSHBOSS REVIEWS: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick
Posted on 01 February 2017
There is just something about Jeffree Star Cosmetics that makes our makeup-loving hearts race with glee. Maybe it's the look of the brand; bold and unapologetically Jeffree. With Jeffree Star Cosmetics, it's go big or go home. Colours are unique, one-of-a-kind and pigmentation is intense...
The scent of these liquid lipsticks are unlike anything I have ever smelt before. It is hard to describe what it smells like, but is strangely addictive.. A few have said that it smells like root beer, but I reckon it smells like a minty grape candy. I know the description may sound a bit weird, but it probably doesn't even matter anyway because the scent is very, very mild, and not hardly noticeable at all.
FORMULA AND LONGEVITY
My favourite thing about this product, apart from the unique colours, are how comfortable they are on the lips. Now, I am not going to sit here and tell you that they are super moisturising, because they aren't super moisturising, because they are liquid lipsticks. You cannot get a liquid lipstick and have it feel like a lip balm! BUT, there are many drying liquid lipsticks out there, and this isn't one of them.
These go on non-streaky on the lips, and very wet yet not too liquid-like, thus making application and precision very easy. They then dry completely within 60 seconds, and feel extremely light weight on the lips, almost like you're not wearing anything at all.
What's the ultimate test for seeing if a liquid lip is tacky or not? Put your lips together and then part them...
Your lips shouldn't feel sticky, like glue, when you're parting them. These Velour Liquid Lipsticks absolutely nailed it. No tackiness or stickiness.
NO BUTT HOLE LIPS. They are not a cute look. These Jeffree Star liquid lips are budge-proof. They don't budge even with time. Granted, the liquid lip on the inside of my lip had faded a little after an entire meal, but nothing drastic at all that would leave you with butt hole lips.
We tried the Velour Liquid Lipsticks without first exfoliating or moisturising our lips (we were too excited), and everything worked out better than well for us. So if you're not lazy, exfoliate and put on a bit of lip balm before applying the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks on your lips, and get ready for an intense colour that stays on all day, and you they are so light weight that you might even forget you have on a liquid lipstick in the first place.
