Review | Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick


First post of 2015 is a good one! With this particular product you must believe the hype!

When Jeffree Star stated that he was releasing a range of lipstick products, the little MySpace girl in me was beyond excited. While apart of me really wanted to buy the bundle pack of the three lipsticks I was in the midst of quitting my job and looking to live quite cheaply, so splurging out on makeup products is a big deal and a thing I have to really think over. While I love all three of the colours he has released I felt 'Redrum' (red) was very suited to my style as I own thousands of red lipsticks (God damn you MAC)! 


Okay, so the packaging is beyond cute! Neon pink with cute gold stars! beautiful! The bottle itself shocked me, I didn't think it would be this big, you get a lot of product for a cheap price. It's so handy and easy to fit in your handbag, although, you don't really need to take it anywhere as one application in the morning is all you need, yes really! 

The lovely thing about this product is that it applies wet but dries matte and boy do I mean matte! The texture is so odd, it feels like you're applying water! The product doesn't really have a smell, which would have been a nice little extra! It stays beautiful and doesn't look drying on the lips, which is great as I have super dry lips! The product states that it dries in 60 seconds, which it doesn't, I would say around 3-5 minutes before it completely dries, where you can press your lips and no product will transfer. That is probably the only teeny tiny little flaw I can find with this product, which isn't really a flaw!


 The applicator is better than what I thought it was going to be. When I first saw it I was thinking "great, like a lip gloss" which I can't stand, but it was easy to use! I still used a lip brush to really define the lips and this is why it's great that it doesn't dry so fast as I think I (and many other people) would find it very difficult to get that sharp lip line. You don't need anything to enhance this product, I wore a lip balm while making up my face then wiped it off with a make up wipe and applied this straight on. It is VERY pigmented and a little truly does go a long way!   

The day I got it me and boyfriend were going out for a meal so I thought I would put the product to the ultimate test! That meant, drinking with no straw, eating a full meal and kissing! I was absolutely amazed! Little product was coming off and it didn't affect the look at all. I kept looking in my pocket mirror to see and every time I looked it just looked the exact same as that first application in the morning! What is so mind blowing is that it is so easy to take off at the end of the day. I used a regular make up wipe and it came off as if it was just any other lip product. Which it isn't, this is one of a kind and you need it in your life.
