Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick Review: Is it Worth the Hype?


Jeffree Star velour liquid lipstick

Everyone is talking about Jeffree Star and his makeup these days. I don't personally care about the drama and chaos, just makeup. 

While the rest of the world is discussing his new powders and concealers, like usual I am late to the party to testing even his most known makeup, namely the liquid lipsticks.

To be honest, I never was inclined to buy a liquid lipstick myself from the brand as I thought that I could get something similar at the drugstore. Nevertheless, my dear friend gifted a lovely velour lipstick for my birthday. I had to take this opportunity and review the lipstick for you guys.

For this review, I will be talking about Jeffree Star liquid lipstick from the Alien collection in the shade “Hi, How are Ya?” 


Packaging

The first impression that I have got from looking at this product is that its packaging is quite large (maybe it’s just my eyes?).

Furthermore, the tube is covered in gorgeous glitter. At first, I thought that this was the intensity of the actual colour.

Overall, I think that the quality of the packaging is fantastic.

10/10

Colour

This lip colour is described as ‘red-berry with red glitter reflects’. I think this colour was released specifically for the holiday season and it shows – this shade screams festivity.

Nevertheless, the fact that this lipstick is not full-on red but somewhat muted pink, it can also work in the spring season.

Another thing that I like about this shade is that it is not covered in glitter – you know what I mean, the chunky horrible glitter in lipsticks. In this case, the glitter is subtle, it’s there to add dimension to your lips. Make it more exciting I guess?

While I would never usually go for a glitter lip look, this in-between shade is perfect for experimenting. The only downside of this shade is that it’s not as wearable compared to an everyday sort of nude or classic burgundy.

7/10

Sensation

Sensation – you know the way the product feels on the lips. That’s what I meant! Before trying this lipstick, the main complaint I’ve heard about Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks was that they are quite drying. This meant that I had some expectations about how this lipstick would feel on my lips.

When I first applied the lipstick on, its matte formula was not as drying as I thought it would be. However, as the day went by, the drying sensation of the product sort of kicked in.

Unfortunately, I think the drying aspect of this product is the negative side of its longevity. Do exfoliate and moisturize your lips before applying the product to avoid the dreadful bum hole lip look.

At least in my opinion, I feel like this lipstick does not make your lips look crusty – there are some products that do this (no matter how much you exfoliate).

5/10

Longevity

The main reason I think that liquid lipsticks have become such a cult classic in the beauty world is due to their longevity compared to standard bullet lipsticks.

I was not surprised to find out that the longevity of this product was far greater than say my NYX liquid lipsticks (it’s far more expensive after all).

On the day I wore this product: I had greasy food, kissed, drank numerous cups of coffee and at the end of the day the lipstick still looked half decent. I have also noticed that it does not leave as many cup marks compared to what I’m used to!

Of course, after a long day the lipstick starts to slightly fade eventually, but compared to other liquid lipsticks I have tried – this one is definitely a winner.

10/10


Final Verdict

So, are Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks worth the hype? YES. Although this depends on your lipstick preference.

If you constantly suffer from dry, chapped, painful lips – this product may not be for you. It would make your lips feel worse (but you can try your luck with exfoliating and moisturizing).

If you are on the look out for longevity – Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks are definitely a beauty product that you should consider investing in.

After all, it comes in so many different shades. There is a shade for every taste, for every skin tone. I have also noticed that some makeup artists use these lipsticks on their eyes – so their versatility is endless. This just emphasizes that makeup is art.

8/10
