Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick Review
Hi guys and gals! Since I have a JS Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin, might as well make a review of this baby because.. why not? Packaging: The packaging is actually stunning! It is a pink box with gold Jeffree Star logos printed it. :D
But beware of fake JS lipsticks that are going around. I took a snap of the sides packaging because the fake JS liquid lipsticks have different sticker of the shade name, doesn't have a bar code, doesn't have that some kind of a batch code (6B1 for me). These are the ingredients. jeffree Star claimed that his products are cruelty free, vegan, and safe to use in the eyes (some people using these as liquid eyeliner). No making out. Gotcha! The bottle is small but a bit bigger than the container of a traditional lipstick. Another indication of genuineness. Fake JS liquid lipstick have different font and layout at the bottom. The doe-foot applicator on this one is the best one I've ever experienced! 10/10. It is a medium sized transparent wand and the tip of this applicator is really flexible. I bet first timers in using liquid lipsticks will find it easy to use this. Long story short, this is a really ergonomic wand. First of all, sorry for my red, sparkly hand. (lol) I've been swatching eyeshadows earlier and I cleaned it with a micellar water (we all know glitters and hard to remove and my hand turned red when I really tried my best to remove it hahaha).
Anyway, the formula is superb! It is thin but oh so pigmented! In fact, you only need one dip to cover your whole lips. It is not too drying which is a plus for a matte liquid lipsticks and it feels light and comfortable on my lips (no tacky feeling).
On the other hand, it has a very strong smell, he stated in his website that it is a rootbeer float scent. I do not like it one bit. It is so strong that I'm not breathing while applying it. The smell fades after a while but girl, it is really strong. Sorry for bad lighting but this is me trying out Celebrity Skin at night and using only indoor lighting.
This shade is lighter than my skin tone. I honestly don't think I can pull off this shade because it washes out my face and make me look pale. This is how the shade looks on me during the day. (Please excuse my face, I'm too lazy to glam lol) Verdict: 4/5 stars!
I think I picked the wrong shade. Nevertheless, it is still a really good liquid lipstick. Just research carefully for the shades you want to buy. ≧ω≦

Over and out!
