It's been a while! But summer is here so I have a bit more free time without the stress of classes, finals, home work, and studying! Being a college student is not easy on the stress levels!
If you all know who Jeffree Star is (famous from the Myspace days, had a singing career, known for his androgyny and passionate attitude) then maybe you know he is a successful entrepreneur who owns his own cult favorite makeup brand: Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I've been waiting to try his liquid lipsticks which are a hit in the beauty community for their long wearing capacity, ultra pigmentation, and non-drying formula (unlike other liquid lipstick brands). I purchased the newly released color on 6/8/16, "Rose Matter" on Beautylish which I heard great things about! On Instagram, you can find tasteful pictures of their ultra trendy tissue paper, brown gift wrapping, personalized notecards, and burlap bag with a free sample. With a $35.00 purchase I received free express shipping! They are located in California, so my package arrived to New York in 2 days! They shipped out the same day I ordered which is amazing!

Let me talk about the Velour Liquid Lipstick in Rose Matter. I had been patiently awaiting its release for weeks because it looked like such a flattering color. If you go to his website: http://jeffreestarcosmetics.com you'll see how almost everything is sold out!
I'm not disappointed! This is a beautiful rosy-pink color. I tried it on my lips and it has a very wet consistency, allowing me to smooth it over my lips with ease. It dries down to a nearly budge-proof, matte finish. It's a stunning color, and what makes this amazing is that it smells like root beer! Apparently only some shades are scented right now, the root beer is a relatively new addition to the lipsticks.
The one thing I have to warn people about is that liquid lipstick in general, defines lip lines. The product clings to your lips, emphasizing lines. It is important to exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub (Jeffree sells that too) and use a primer and chapstick to moisturize and condition. If I ever find a liquid lipstick that doesn't define lip lines, I'll be sure to post it!
