I finally went online to Beauty Bay and placed an order for the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. I haven’t tried any Jeffree Star Cosmetics products until now and I don’t know why it took me so long. Jeffree Star Cosmetics is verified cruelty free by PETA and Leaping Bunny, so you can be 100% sure that your products haven’t harmed any animals in the process.
I purchased two shades of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. The first one I chose was ‘Gemini’ and the second, the popular ‘Unicorn Blood’ shade. I’ll start with reviewing the packaging, longevity, applicator, consistency and then the shades themselves!
The packaging of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick is bright and popping with colour. The box is bright pink with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics logo on which is so recognisable. The end of the box has the shade name and a box of colour. The lipstick itself is in a clear bottle which is great because you can see exactly how much product you have left.
Before applying the lipstick, I prepare my lips with a Lush Lip Scrub. Matte lipsticks, especially liquid lipsticks, can really dry out your lips so it is important to take care of them!
The applicator of the lipstick is quite different to the other liquid lipsticks that I have. It’s a lot more slanted so it curves to fit your lips perfectly, making it so easy to apply. It genuinely glides on. I’ve been wearing the lipstick without a lip liner and it looks flawless.
The consistency of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick is so lovely. It feels really thin and light yet on the lips it doesn’t require more than one layer. I can’t feel it on when I am wearing it which I love too, though I do forget I’m wearing lipstick when I am about to eat sometimes. It dries matte almost instantly which is great for when you’re in a rush!
I have tested these lipsticks from 12pm to 10pm and the lasting power is pretty good. After eating, the lipstick doesn’t rub off too much at all. It can definitely go unnoticed! I reapply anyway, but even then I only need a thin layer on my bottom lip. I would definitely give the longevity of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks a nine out of ten.
The pigmentation of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks is purely brilliant; they are boasting with colour. However, the colour you see in the lipstick in the packaging is lighter than what it appears on the lips. I expected ‘Gemini’ to be a dusky rose nude colour but it is actually a lot darker. I still love it but it isn’t what I was expecting. Just remember that when purchasing!
