First Impressions Of The Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks

First Impressions Of The Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks

Recently I made a US order through Mymallbox and because the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks seemed to always be out of stock in any normal-ish shades I decided to purchase two and have them shipped over with my order. I have no idea for any more liquid lipsticks, in fact my collection is growing so fast I now have about 30 all of which bar 2 have been purchased this year alone, oops #sorrynotsorry

After asking for recommendations and browsing swatches I settled on Androgyny which is a shade I do own quite a few of, it’s a plum mauve and quite dark and Scorpio which is lilac grey colour. There’s a lot more I could have got including Unicorn Blood and Redrum but I didn’t want to go overboard.

Visually the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks are nice sturdy bottles of a decent size, they’re quite interesting in design and you can see a lot of the colour through the tubes which is always good. I don’t get why any brand would make an opaque/semi opaqua liquid lipstick tube, or is that just me?! In all honesty, I’m not that fussed about what the product looks like from the outside it’s all about the formula of course.

Jeffree Star Swatches

A lot of people rave about these liquid lipsticks and I have to admit they do live up to expectations as the colour applies evenly and easily, they dry quite quickly on the lips yet don’t feel too dry on. I have high expectations when it comes to the longevity of a liquid lipstick and if it starts coming off at around the 6-hour mark then I don’t consider it great. My favourite formula comes from Anastasia Beverley Hills (when oh when are they coming to the UK?!) and I compare everything to these and the Jeffree one’s didn’t surpass. Yeah, the colour stayed looking good but considering they’re a similar feeling formula they did seem to fade quicker than other counterparts.

There’s nothing bad about the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks and they’re great for those unusual colours which other brands just wouldn’t produce but I don’t think they’re anything crazy special. I know there’s a Cocktail Cosmetics store just outside of Birmingham so one day I might pop there and swatch some just so I don’t end up with anything too similar to what I already have.

Have you tried the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks?

    I have so many of these but stopped purchasing after the controversy but I always got compliments with the chosen colours especially the blue shade. I’ve yet to try ABH and would probably prefer giving my money that way x

      Yeah I don’t think I’d buy any more after all the issues, KVD and ABH can have all my money x

    I hear people talk about his cosmetics a lot they seem to be a bit like marmite. I wouldn’t mind swatching them to see for myself though.

    I’ve heard quite a lot about these! I love the shades, and for me, six hours is actually quite impressive, haha.

    I’ve heard so much about this brand but never tried it myself! I’d really love to try the abh you compared it too x

    We’ve never tried Jeffree Star but like the fact they do unusual colours. We’re always worried that liquid wouldn’t last but infact 6 plus hours would be good going for us!

    I would love to try one of the Jeffree Star lippies, even though they’re not really my kind of thing, I just wanna try the hype for myself! xxx

  12. November 19, 2016 / 2:21 pm

    No I haven’t. Would love to try a liquid lipstick.

  13. November 19, 2016 / 3:35 pm

    I’ve not tried any of Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks and I probably wouldn’t any time soon as I can get hold of them easily here. I do love that plum coloured on you have though, it’s so pretty!

    I always wanted to try some Jeffree star cosmetics but when Kat von D realeased her tell all video about him and the way he conducts his business it really put me off! The shades do look lush though!

    No, i have yet to try these lipsticks although the shades look great. It’s good to hear they dry fast and apply well.

    I am always a bit nervous to buy cosmetics online from the US. I think matte lipstick is fashion . Nice shades R

    I’ve been after one of the MAC liquid lipsticks for a while but they only come in limited shades so I’ll definitely be checking these out. x

    Love these shades, my fall kind of colors. I usually gravitate to these shades during the Fall and Winter time.

    Oooo I heard about Jeffree Star not too long ago and I loved the shades on offer.
    These two look perfect for Autumn. Fast drying is a must for me and not leaving my lips dry too. So it sounds perfect.
    Thanks do much for sharing hun
