Reviewed: Jeffree Star's Watermelon Soda

If you read my post on the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade Celebrity Skin (here) then
you already know how much I love the formulation from this brand; it outlasts all others is the most comfortable to wear and smells nice without being sickly. What's not to love? Jeffree, of course comes with controversy with some people, but I am here for the makeup and that is where I know he comes through!
A couple weeks ago Jeffree announced the launch of a Limited Edition Summer '16 range which includes five shades. The one that grabbed me was Watermelon Soda. It's such a unique shade of summer-time pinky/coral/rose (or watermelon haha). The packaging sports a bright pop of yellow on the lid instead of the year-round ranges pink.
I wanted to swatch the shade on top of my tattoo so you could see the coverage. I did one swatch and it covers quite a bit. It is even more opaque on the lips. I haven't found my tripod in the mix of moving so I couldn't model it for you, sorry about that. I like seeing lip colors on. As soon as I find it I'll do a makeup look around the lip!

Overall:
I was so impressed, yet again, with the formula. It's not drying, it lasts like a champ (Literally had to only do a tiny retouch after eating soup and a grilled cheese.), retouches don't get heavy or chunky looking, everything is top notch! So, here's to you Jeffree Star, you have done it yet again. ;)

I hope you enjoyed this summer-y lip post! Have you tried the Velour Liquid Lipsticks from
Jeffree Star Cosmetics? Tell me what you think of this post in the comments! If there are any shades you want to see me try from this or other brands let me know!
