Swatch

It’s been a little while since I’ve purchased anything from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I really wanted the Beauty Killer Palette and one (or a few) of the Skin Frosts, but after reading several mixed reviews I decided not to get either of them. But when I saw the Watermelon Soda Velour Liquid Lipstick I just knew that I had to make it mine!

Watermelon Soda is a very unique shade in my collection. It’s a super bright shade of watermelon/coral, but somehow still wearable. Or at least it is to me. I mean it’s not neon like some of the other shades I purchased and applied only to be stunned by my own reflection. It’s the perfect bold shade for Summer! And it smells like watermelon! It comes in a Limited Edition yellow packaging that I’m not too crazy about. I prefer the pink! The applicator is very soft like some of the other Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks that I’ve tried in the past. My only real issue is the formula. It applied really streaky! No matter how many times I went over it with the applicator I couldn’t get it to even out. A lip brush didn’t help much either. From a distance you can’t really tell, but up close you definitely can.

It still made for a comfortable wear. It lasted through dinner and drinks without budging. But after about 6 hours it looked rather patchy. It definitely wasn’t a good look. It’s a beautiful shade and I’m really digging the watermelon scent. But $25.00 ($18.00 + shipping) for a streaky lipstick is one hell of a letdown. I’m pretty forgiving and can work with just about anything. But how can you work with something that flat out refuses to even out? I’ll keep trying to make it work. The shade is just too pretty to sit at the bottom of my toolbox collecting dust.

Swatches (Top to Bottom): Androgyny, Masochist

When I purchased Androgyny I picked up another shade I had been eyeing. Actually there are quite a few I’d like to get still, but if I don’t limit myself things get out of hand.

Anyway, the shade I’m referring to is Masochist. Masochist is described as the color of crushed berries on ice. It’s one of the most beautiful, vibrant pinks in my collection. And let me tell you, once you put this bad boy on it’s not going anywhere! Even after removal it left behind a bit of a stain. Thankfully this one didn’t smell like anything. But as the lovely Amanda pointed out, it was just the raw ingredients and nothing to worry about. I just thought I’d mention it since Androgyny did have a strong scent.

Masochist applied perfectly. I did use my lip brush to line my lips because I find that I can be a bit messy with the darker shades. It felt very comfortable and lightweight and seriously lasted the entire day. I’m really digging the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks and it’s quickly taking over my liquid lipstick drawer. And I think Masochist just might be my favorite.

Swatches (Top to Bottom): Androgyny, Masochist

I’m so happy to see the Jeffree Star Cosmetics line expanding. I’m even happier to see some really nice wearable shades. Like Androgyny. The swatches really sold me on this one. It’s the perfect shade! It looks beautiful on everyone I’ve seen wearing it. I was so excited to finally make it mine. I actually ordered from Beautylish this time. Shipping was so fast! I was really impressed. Ok now onto the good stuff.

Androgyny is described as a plum mauve. It was exactly what I was expecting! However, when I leaned in for a sniff (am I seriously the only one who does this?) it smelled really bad. It was pretty strong too. It wasn’t a rancid smell. It smelled very strong of chemicals or something. And it smelled just as bad when I went to apply it. However, once it dried down the smell disappeared. I really hope it’s nothing to worry about. I’ve never experienced anything like this before. My husband claims he couldn’t smell anything and insisted it was my upper lip (seriously).

Strong scent aside, it applied perfectly. I really love these applicators. They’re so soft and make for the perfect application! It felt really lightweight and comfortable. It started to feel a little dry around 6 hours, but not overly so. It lasted through a day of walking trails, Mexican food, and coffee. When I went to wash it off before bed there was still a hint of it there.

I really don’t know what to make of the scent, but it’s the most gorgeous lipstick! And my friend assures me that it’s nothing to worry about. Honestly, that’s all the convincing I need. You can see Androgyny in action below.
