Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Watermelon Soda


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.

  1. Oh I was just going to say that the LE packaging looked really cool! But then I don’t really like pink… Too bad it’s uneven, although it’s hard to tell even in your closeup.

  2. I’m sorry to hear that the application was so streaky! For what it’s worth, it still looks rather good in your closeup, but for the money you spent, I would probably be frustrated as well.

  3. Awww :( I would have been disappointed as well, after all its not that cheap. Maybe you can apply it over the lipbalm, it wont be matte but will give that juicy pout :)

  4. You did an amazing job with the application, even though you mentioned that it’s un-even. I have to say that the color is super pretty ~ a lovely color for summer.

  7. It looks rather good in the close-up, but I agree, patchiness after that money you spend shouldn’t be an issue.

  9. It’s a pity that it was streaky – especially at that price! It’s a pretty colour but I wouldn’t want to buy anything from Jeffree Star! xx

    Sorry to hear that it is not up to your expectations, at the same time I am sure you’ll find a way to this problem.

  11. The shade is so freaking pretty so it’s a huge shame that it applies streaky and goes patchy after 6 hours, do you know any dupes for it?

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one having problems with the streakyness. This is my first time buying a light bright shade I have a few of his deeper colors and I don’t have a problem, so I’m kinda bummed out cuz it’s such a pretty color!

    • I have a few of his other shades too and they applied beautifully. This one unfortunately didn’t. Sorry to hear you had issues too. :(

  14. Lovely shade… Thanks for sharing. posted :
