First Impressions - Jeffree Star

For those of you that don't know, I'm obsessed with makeup. I think it's such an art and the fact that you can take it off and do it all over again makes it that much better. You can do your makeup however you want and if you don't like it, you always get a second chance to redo it. Eyeliner, for example, is my arch nemesis because although I love how great it looks, I constantly have to keep redoing it so it looks nice. But, I enjoy doing it because it gives me practice. That being said, I am not a big fan of lipsticks, primarily because the second I put food in my mouth, it washes off. I was told by a couple coworkers that Jeffree Star makes really great ones and they last all day. I wanted to try them out so I ended up buying 3 of them.

When I received them, they all came in little pink packages with Jeffree Star's logo on them:

To be honest, when I took them out of the box, I was a little disappointed in the size, as I was expecting them to be bigger. They each come in a 0.19oz tube as shown above. They can each fit into my palm and my palm isn't very large. I do wish they were bigger, but for $18 a piece, I was really hoping they were worth it.

So far, I've tried all 3. My favorite would have to be Androgyny. I know that everybody has raved about it and I couldn't figure out why, but after using it a couple times in the 1 day I've had it, I can definitely see why. It's a very mauve color. It's almost a dark nude with some dark purple undertones. I find that it fits my complexion very well. Celebrity Skin is a very nude color. I had to put on a few layers to get the desired color that I wanted. Unicorn Blood is a very dark, true red. It does not make your teeth look yellow as most reds do. I would say it has blue undertones that help with that. It's a really great dark red color.

As for my thoughts on this, I am in love.
Whole-heartedly. I put some on last night before bed and forgot to take it off. When I woke up this morning, it was still on my lips, same texture and same color. If that doesn't prove to you that it's long lasting, then I don't know what does. I am not a fan of Jeffree Star, I don't follow him or his videos or any social media, but I will give credit where it's due. I am a fan of these liquid lipsticks and highly recommend them to anybody that wants a lipstick that lasts a long time. I also recommend doing a lip scrub and putting some sort of chapstick on before, so it doesn't dry out your lips.

Have you tried his velour liquid lipsticks?! What's your favorite shade?!
