I’ve known about Jeffree Star since the good old days of Myspace and Livejournal (oh how I’m starting to date myself right now)
Since I’ve always been heavily into makeup, I really appreciate his avant-garde aesthetic. I wish that I could rock the glam looks that he does on a daily basis!
For those of you who don’t know, Jeffree has created a liquid lipstick line and I was fortunate enough to snag one recently…they are pretty much all sold out everywhere and I can’t wait until he restocks!
I ended up picking up the color Celebrity Skin, and I’m kind of in love with it. I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect nude matte lipstick for a while now, and so many of the ones that I’ve tried end up looking incredibly chalky on me.
I think what I love about this color is that it has a real brown/pink base to it, which gets rid of any chalkiness that would otherwise be present in a “true nude” on me.
As for the lasting power, it does pretty well! The longest lasting liquid lipsticks that I’ve found are made by Kat Von D (those suckers don’t budge at all!) and while Jeffree Star’s lipstick will last quite a while, it will come off while eating or if you wipe your lips. This doesn’t flake off or feel drying at all, which is a huge plus.
All in all I’m really happy with this and I can’t wait to pick up some more colors when they are in stock!
Below is a quick look that I did the other day featuring the lipstick…I wanted something simple and pretty, but a little smoky and sultry at the same time.
