Reviewed: Jeffree Star Cosmetics - Velour Liquid Lipstick

My friend, Paije, recently went to RuPaul's Drag Con and asked me if there was anything she could
bring me back from the Jeffree Star booth. Of course I thought of about 20 things, but successfully used self control and asked her to get me the always-out-of-stock Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin!
Everyone and their mother (and possibly their father) knows that the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks are the formula to try. With a high standard for quality and a mix of stand-out and on trend shades Jeffree has set himself as a notch above the rest in a land of start-up/indie brands that are hitting the market these days. When I shop from a indie brand and I am paying high end prices I expect that quality and with Jeffree at the helm I expect magic.
I am happy to report that this liquid lipstick has soared beyond my high expectations. It is a much thinner formula with all the pigmentation. This makes for a much more comfortable wear and less of a thick, dry look. Celebrity Skin looks amazing on every skin tone I've seen it on and lasts forever. I'm not even kidding when I say I ate a burger and just needed a light touch up. Paije got a different shade and it survived a bowl of Pho when we went out. 

Impressed would be an understatement with this formula. I am...I don't know...I standing ovation, hailing the Queen, because Jeffree has hit this one out of the park and maybe the world. I can not say enough good things; from the unique, curved doe foot applicator that gives a precise application to the 100% Jeffree packaging, and the pigmentation that is one coat quality. The only draw back is that due to the indie status of the brand and the killer quality many shades are often out of stock and fly at light speed of the digital shelves as soon as they are restocked. 

This is by FAR my favorite liquid lipstick formula. I got 10 hours of comfortable wear with eating without one touch up and I think that says everything. If you can get your hands on one of these shades then I suggest it. 100% Vegan & Cruelty free there is nothing to turn you off about this kick-ass lipstick.
