Jeffree star cosmetics velour liquid lipsticks : my new addiction

L-r : Celebrity skin, androgyny, doll parts, masochist, unicorn blood, dirty money


'Doll parts'

I remember exactly when I switched on to liquid lipsticks, I think it was around the time Kylie Jenner started that huge lip craze, and I remember trawling the internet looking for shades of lipstick that could offer a matte coverage to allow me to make my own pout slightly fuller. Now don't judge me here - I can't be the only person who's discovered a lip product and set themself the unspoken task of owning all shades whoops. Jefree star has been on my radar since the myspace era, I remember some pretty rad pictures of him covered in milk and fruit loops, but who would have known he would go on to create one of the greatest lip products my makeup space and face has met. I've previously tried lime crime's velventine matte lip product offering and we just didn't get along - the colour transferred and cracked and just wouldn't stay on my lips. I first purchased 'celebrity skin' from a seller on depop, being an american brand the JS liquid lips are fairly difficult to get over here, for me, it was love at first sight, and I don't believe I've ever had so many compliments on a lipstick before. The formula of these ingenious products is thick and creamy, I like to prep with a bit of vaseline to avoid them sticking to dry patches, and then i apply, the only shade I've had a problem with running wise is unicorn blood, but every other shade doesn't require a lip liner, just a steady hand and some patience. Drying wise these are pretty quick, I can apply this as I'm leaving for work and they will be dry on my lips by the time I get in the car. I can even kiss with these on - result - as theres no colour transfer! the only time I've felt some graininess and struggle was when eating. I've picked up a fair few shades now, its so nice to find a range that offers so many wearable colours - however Jeffree offers some pretty other crazy colours including a bright blue named 'jaw breaker' and a bright white named 'drug lord'. Getting my paws on these has been never been easier thanks to finding a UK website that is selling them now - cocktail cosmetics  , I HAD to share this with you - and my now my collection is growing double whoops. Would you believe I'm reaching for these over mac now!?
Jeffree star is in my life to stay and every payday is seeing a new one of these hit my stash!
What do you think of these?
