I’ve had my eye on the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick range for ages. Loving matte lips and looking for a replacement for another brands matte liquid lipsticks, these were very much on my radar and I’ve never heard a bad word about them. If you love to experiment with colour the range is incredible, but it wasn’t until his recently released Christmas collection that I took the plunge and ordered Androgyny a beautiful matte plum mauve shade. I’ll warn you now, this is limited edition and so far as I’m aware is no longer available in the UK, I could be wrong. I purchased mine from Cocktail Cosmetics who are, I think, the only UK stockist of Jeffree Star’s line. It is however still available from Jeffree Star’s site http://www.jeffreestarcosmetics.com/, where international shipping is $10.95 (watch out for customs charges!).
While you can’t easily buy the shade I’m reviewing, you can take this as a review of the formula in general!
The packaging, both exterior and interior, is beautiful. This white version is just for the holiday collection, but otherwise it is the same for standard products, but pink!
And tucked within is is Androgyny. Again, I love the packaging.
Below isn’t a great photo, if you look at my skin colour it’s off, but the lip colour is near on perfect and it shows the finish really well.
Honestly this is perfection. It’s really easy to apply. I’ve had issues with some liquid lipsticks and doe foot applicators not being accurate. This goes on very easily. The shade is beautiful. While it is matte, its not completely flat, it isn’t quite satin, but somewhere between matte and satin. Most impressively this doesn’t suck the moisture out of your lips. I had a slight panic as it dried down, it felt a bit odd, but once dry it felt great, could hardly feel it on.
The wear time on this is AMAZING. It lasts for hours and hours without budging or smearing. I applied as soon as the post man delivered it yesterday morning, I noticed fading only at 7pm when I looked in the mirror after my dinner. Very impressive.
First thing Chloe said when I picker her up from school yesterday was “I love your lipstick” and she’s not the only one, I love it too! I will most definitely pick up more of these at some point, the application and wear time is perfect.
I paid £14.00 for mine, and while you can’t get this shade, definitely do go and check them out using the links above!
