A luxuriously creamy, long lasting liquid lipstick that packs a punch of colour!
This is my first dabble in the art of Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and wow and I hooked. I’ve been a fan of Jeffree Star’s cosmetics since the MySpace days (really showing my age now…) and after seeing the numerous swatches of the shade Androgyny, I decided to take the plunge.
My first impressions of this lipstick is that the packaging is amazingly cute. It’s a lot smaller than I imagined, for some reason I heard that the lipsticks were chunky, that is not the case!
My first impression turned sour when I first applied this lipstick, as I was a bit annoyed at how patchy it was. It’s £16 a pop, it shouldn’t deliver so poorly for a premium product! It couldn’t deliver the same bold colour consistently across my lips and kept leaving parts watery. Turns out in my haste to try it, I didn’t read the packaging – you got to shake it for 5 seconds to mix it again as it settles and separates.
After doing the “shake for 5 seconds“, I tried again – A LOT BETTER! This time it felt like it was properly mixed, and delivered bold colour in every stroke. So remember guys – shake it like a Polaroid picture!
I let this bad boy dry for about five minutes before putting it to the test – I ate my dinner, drank a whole lot of water (without a straw), and it held remarkably well. It did leave my lips in the centre, but the edges stayed neat – no smudging to turn me into the Joker.
One bad thing was that it felt sticky for a while after application, which I’ve noticed with my Nyx Liquid Cream lipsticks. On reapplication it didn’t build up and go flaky – it still went on smoothly and didn’t clump.
Bottom Line: There is a reason why Jeffree Star has such a large cult following – and it’s because of these unbelievable products. Also they’re vegan!
