Lip Swatch: Jeffree Star Cosmetics “Posh Spice”

Hey lovelies,

It’s Saturday! Hooray and stuff! I know that I usually have more elaborate Swatch Saturdays planned, but today I want to do a quick post. Have no fear, I have a few really awesome reviews on new products coming up! I did a bit of shopping. Okay, a lot of shopping, but with all these new releases happening all at once, can you blame me?

Something that I picked up virtually in the midst of my pajama friendly shopping spree I ended up picking up “Posh Spice” by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I only picked that one up because I ordered quite a few colorful things from Colourpop. I originally wasn’t going to order it, but the free shipping deal sucked me in, and I saw several swatches on Instgram that made my heart flutter. Instagram made me do it.

This shade is described as a “greige taupe” and I feel that’s a very proper description.

I will link my previous review of this brand at the end of this post, but can we talk about how gorgeous this shade is? It’s a darker nude that I feel will suite many skin tones. As always, I swatch in natural light and I have very fair skin with cool undertones for reference.

Just as a quick overview though, the Velour Liquid Lipsticks are very pigmented and apply smoothly. They also don’t dry down fully and stay about 5% tacky so that they wear comfortably and won’t crumble. They are transfer proof, and kiss proof. They are not make out proof though, just a heads up.

The applicator on these are my favorites as well. They are very “brush” like, which makes applying so much easier, in my opinion. I typically don’t have to go back in with a small lip brush to perfect anything, unless we’re getting up close and personal like we are today.

These are $18 a piece, which is higher end, but I honestly feel these are worth it. There’s a lot of product in these, and this formula is probably my all time favorite. I wear “Unicorn Blood” constantly.

I will definitely be sporting this shade as the weather cools down. Have you picked up any amazing and unique lipstick shades lately? Tell me about it!

I hope you all enjoyed this quick swatch post! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days!

Review: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks

jeffree star

Today I want to talk about my favorite thing…lipstick! I’m always down to talk about lipstick, but more specificially, liquid lipsticks. They seem to be talked about everywhere at the moment. I own quite a few different brands myself. Honestly, I’m addicted to liquid lipsticks. I love trying out new brands and seeing their color ranges. Is it a problem? Maybe. Am I gonna stop? Never.

I like liquid lipsticks because they are just easier to me. If they’re long lasting and easy to apply, I can put them on and still look glamorous without having to worry about lipstick being all over my teeth 5 minutes later.

Jeffree Star has released his own line of liquid lipsticks, and they are blowing up instagram! When I saw that he was releasing a bundle that included a true red, a deep red, and a nude…I almost died. I knew they would sell out quickly (less than an hour later, to be precise) so I stayed up and painlessly snagged my bundle at 3 am est. Honestly, that was the least painful makeup release I have ever endured. The site didn’t crash, I didn’t get my shit stolen out of my cart…or my bank account *COUGH LIME CRIME* So, thumbs up for that.

I wanted to do this review mainly because these shades will be available again next month. So, if you’re on the fence about whether or not to buy these and need a bit more insight, you’re in the right place.

Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipsticks are vegan and cruelty free. They are also $18 a piece, but the bundle I purchased was $46, so it was discounted a bit.

Packaging: Lush. It’s so cute. I love the fat tubes, honestly. They’re so bold, yet sleek in their own way. Different than many other lipstick packages I’ve seen lately.

Application: These come with a doe foot applicator, but I did notice that the brush has a bit of movement to it. I like that. I like that I can easily maneuver the brush in tight spots and get the most crisp line possible.

Formula: This formula is incredible. It’s probably my new all time favorite liquid lipstick formula. It’s so light on the lips, it feels like I’m wearing nothing. It’s not too drying, yet this formula is super matte. It’s rare to find a liquid lipstick that’s super matte, yet not super drying at the same time. It almost feels like velvet.

Color Payoff: Freakin’ intense. These are very opaque. Even the nude “Celebrity Skin” is very opaque, which is different for me considering my natural lip color tends to throw most nude shades off a bit.

Longevity: Ya may want to sit down for this, but these are truly everything proof. I have said with LaSplash’s lipsticks that they can get crumbly after a bit, and most do, but Jeffree Star’s do not. They are truly kiss proof. Yes, I used my boyfriend for lipstick research. Kiss your boos in this lipstick it won’t budge.

Overall Thoughts: It’s probably obvious at this point that I’m legitimately #obsessed with this line of liquid lipsticks. I didn’t order the two newest pastel shades, because pastel shades on pasty skin just isn’t my thing. I love my nudes and reds, which is why I ordered this bundle back in February. I believe this bundle (or at least the colors in the bundle) will be restocked in April! So, if you missed out on these, you will get another chance to order these soon. I really do love this line, and I hope that Jeffree Star’s cosmetic line continues to soar and expand, especially if everything will be this high quality.

Here are some photos and swatches of the bundle:

This is the shade "unicorn blood" by far my favorite of the bundle. A warm burgundy red. Aka perfection.

"Celebrity Skin" a very beige nude color. Doesn't flatter my pale skin the best, but it pairs well with lip liners to change the color a bit.

"Redrum" an extremely true red shade with more orange undertones than blue, but it's a good in between. I adore this bright red.

Favorites Friday

Another week of favorites!
For those that are new to my blog this week, I post my weekly favorites on my blog. It’s a fairly new thing, but I hope to continue it. Some of it may be beauty related, some of it may not be.
So, if you’re interested in what tickled me pink this week, keep reading!

1. First thing I want to mention is this deliciousness in a bottle. I have tried a few Bolthouse Farms drinks before, but I tried a veggie drink and it was awful so I assumed all of them were just as nasty. However, a friend on twitter was raving about this particular drink and I thought I would try it, mostly because it is completely lactose free. Fun Fact: I’m lactose intolerant. But I’m bad and eat dairy a bit too often and it’s killing my stomach and making me feel bloated and lousy. I’m hoping that yummy things like this will help me keep on a healthier path.

2. All of the snow and ice in my city has me dreaming about Spring, which is unusual for me. I’ve been loving all of the pointed flats, so I bought 2 pairs for myself from Forever 21. I needed some new flats, anyway. I’m really rough on shoes. The watch was a $10 find from JCPenney a few weeks ago, and I love it! I’m normally not a watch person, but I love the chevron pattern on it. The Juicy Couture earrings are a $3 (yes, you read that right) find from Kohl’s! The fresh citron perfume was a sample I received awhile back and forgot about. It’s actually a very lovely scent! I don’t feel like a basket of oranges and it doesn’t smell like kitchen cleaner either.

3. My favorite foundation combo since I receieved this in the mail has been my new Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation (shade Vanille Claire) topped with my Laura Geller balance and brightening powder. It gives my skin such a bright and healthy glow. On my nails this week has been “Comfy in Cashmere” by Essie. It’s from their new matte collection, but this matte goes above and beyond any matte nail polish I have ever tried. It’s not flat and one dimensional, it almost has a color shift to it. It’s GORGEOUS.

4. Along with the black flats, I picked up the “nude” shade. I just figured it would end up being a staple pair of shoes for Spring. I got an email saying that “Vampira” by Kat Von D was finally back in stock, so I went ahead and ordered one, and I’m glad I did since it’s once again out of stock. I’ve been wanting this shade for so long! My Jeffree Star Cosmetics order also came in the mail, and I’ve been wearing “Celebrity Skin” since the moment I saw it! It’s such a gorgeous nude and I can’t wait to show you all what the other two look like! My go-to blush has been ‘Tea Rose” by Milani Cosmetics. These rose blushes are superb and this color is the perfect everyday color for my skin tone. That and it’s just so damn gorgeous?!?!?

5. Need I say more? My cat is a total fuzzy weirdo.

Those were my favorites for the week! What were some of yours?
