Jeffree Star Cosmetics Celebrity Skin | Review

jeffree star cosmetics celebrity skin review
Hi Flamingos
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas break, I know I sure did. I have had a bit more time off my blog than what I would have liked but I'm back in business and expect to see more blog posts from now on. Anyway back onto todays post;  I have always wanted to try makeup from 'Jeffree Star Cosmetics' but it wasn't too easy to find in the UK and I wasn't keen ordering on the Jeffree star cosmetics website because I wasn't sure how much the customs charge would be, so I pretty happy waiting for it come to the UK(eventually). Thankfully they are much easy to find now because they are on one of my favourite makeup sites 'Beauty Bay. My mum bought me this for Christmas and it came within two days which I think is brilliant for free delivery. 

Jeffree Star Cosmetics was founded by the one and only 'Jeffree star'. I remember seeing Jeffree on my Myspace 10 years ago and also the music too. This cometic brand is relatively new and has a few different beauty products including; velour liquid lipsticks, highlighters, eyeshadow palettes and more.

 First Impressions
The packaging is very nice and it is packaged in a gorgeous hot pink box with the lipstick shade on top of the box and five jeffree star embossed rose gold stars on the front on the box. I love when things are packaged well especially then they cost so much more than a cheaper lipstick, because I like getting my moneys worth if you know what I mean.

The lipstick tube locks with a click too which is oddly quite satisfying and to be honest the reason is that so many lipsticks I have tried before have a top that easily comes off.

I had no idea what the scent was until I looked it up online and it said it was root beer scented like a few of the other jeffree star lipsticks. I actually like the smell its kinda sweet and is not overpowering at all.

It has a curved applicator which kinda looks cool and it goes quite well into the shape of your lips. Every time it has given me the right amount of product for each and every application with no need going back into to the tube for more product.

The liquid lipstick is true to the name 'liquid' it almost feels like liquid because of how light if feels on the lips. Once its on your lips you wait a few minutes until it dries into a matte finish which looks so frigging cool, I love it.

My mum took ages to choose a lipstick shade for me as she thinks I suit nude shades the best, she finally  chose 'Celebrity Skin' which is a pink toned brown shade which is a lovely nude shade. 

My thoughts 
I just love how intense and how opaque the lipstick is, as soon as its applied to the skin you can see how intense the colour is. I looked on Jeffrees Star social media and its suggested to use a lip scrub before applying this so I applied my Lush bubblegum lip scrub before I put this on and it is a good idea to actually do that beforehand since this is a matte lipstick, it helps reduce a matte lipstick being 
as dry. 

I have worn Celebrity skin a few times and I just love it and I will tell you all the reasons why I love this so much. The first reason it has a lovely effect on the lips, it isn't too drying like quite a lot of matte lipsticks. Another reason is it lasts along time, I've had it last nearly 6 hours before needing another application. Lastly is how opaque and how super lightweight this is with just one coat, it almost feels like you're not wearing anything on your lips at all.

I will be adding more liquid lipsticks to my makeup collection soon as I have sure been converted to them now haha.

    I love the formulation of Jeffree Star lipsticks too! They are the best ones out there when comfort, pricing, opacity and longevity are compared! :) x

    Celebrity Skin was a shade I really wanted when I made my order but it was out of stock. I like the lipsticks but they don't blow me away x

    I love that neutral colour. I have a really old lipstick that is very similar and I would love to replace it!

  • This is a great nude shade and I can see it will be appropriate for so many different occasions :)

  • Love how it dries to a Matt finish, looks that a fab shade too!

  • I have never come across this brand before but would look out for it now - I too like the pink shade but not too pink as tend to wear browns a lot
