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.

  1. Olaaa mama, that is a stunning shade indeed! I was just thinking through my lipstick collection and somehow I don’t have much mauve, I think it’s time to change that.

  2. Was it the only shade of the range that smelled like this to you?

    • Yes! That’s why it was odd. None of them have a scent. But this one is just really bad. It does go away after it dries down though.

  3. You weren’t kidding- the shade Androgyny looks like the perfect shade for everyone! I think u made me neeeedddd it!!!! ;)

  4. I had a similar experience with the Bourjois liquid lipsticks – smell really, really chemically but once dry seem fine.. It’s off-putting though. Looks great on you! x

  7. So what I’ve heard is that the scent is the raw ingredients. Meaning they didn’t add a scent to mask the smell. They have now been adding scents like cotton candy so the smell isn’t so in your face. Masochist is amazing! I want it. <3

  9. VERY pretty… though I gotta “wtf” at your husband’s comment. Do you have a bad habit of swigging bleach before smooching him or something?? Lmao. Must be something in the dye.
