Review: Jeffree Star Summer 2016 Limited Edition Velour Liquid Lipsticks in 714 and Watermelon Soda
Jeffree Star Cosmetics just revealed their summer line, which includes five Velour Liquid Lipsticks.
The limited edition collection features yellow and matte pink packaging and includes the return of beloved shade (714). Four of the shades, with the exception of (714), are flavored to taste like watermelon Jolly Ranchers.
The lipsticks retail for $18 individually or $75 for a five pack bundle.
I personally got attracted to the colors 714 and Watermelon Soda so I immediately pre-ordered the two of them from the Instagram shop named @nailsandvanity for Php 1,100 each + shipping fee. Here in the Philippines, there is a price increase due to tax rates and of course the "tubo"of the onine seller. So far, this is the online store who is selling JS products the cheapest.
After 2-3 weeks of waiting, my lipstick finally arrived!!! Ta-dahhhh!
Long-lasting, extreme beauty, matte finish, cruelty-free, and vegan! Smile! Ready for your close up?
Our liquid lipstick goes on opaque, dries completely matte and stays on for hours! This product is 100% vegan & cruelty-free! (tips before use: exfoliate with lip scrub then apply to bare lips! Avoid food with oil… and no making out, kisses are ok!)

Jeffree Star Watermelon Soda and 714 from Summer 2016 Velour Liquid Lipstick Product Review:
I absolutely adore the color of these two - bright, bold, and a li'l bit neon! Totally stunning on their own indeed!
This is my new FAVORITE shade to wear! It's a bright neon coral that instantly brightens my face. It was said to be a universally flattering color for both light and dark-skinned people!
Its formulation is also a winner: opaque, very pigmented, and ultra long-lasting. It stayed on my lips from 3-9 pm without budging. It will only start fading from the inside if I eat oily meals. Drinking a bit from the water bottle doesn't affect the color and it doesn't transfer easily.
It is non-drying but not totally hydrating either: it doesn't give me dry, chapped lips. I totally recommend it to anyone who loves coral lippies!
It is a bright neon light coral pink. I have a love-hate relationship with this color coz its appeal on my face would depend on the total look of my eye makeup. With bare eyes, it looks "too out there" but with neutral or colored heavy smoky eyes, it looks striking! I find it nice to mix with different lipsticks though for a new twist of color!
As far as the formulation goes, not too impressed. It went on kinda streaky on me. I had to apply 2-3 layers before I even get this color to have an even finish! Compared to Watermelon Soda, this one is a bit more drying, my lip lines were showing.
If not a fan of bright neon colors maybe you can pass on this one and choose a more muted shade instead but if you like the lips to be the center of attention, this is worth a try!
I find the colors bold on their own so I decided to match them with light neutral make-up to make my lips stand-out! However, with the shade 714, pairing it with a smoky eye shadow can make you look stunning as well. Again, that will depend on your personality thought and your level of courage to wear such neon lip colors! Hehe!
Watermelon definitely enhances my skin tone instantly whether or not I am wearing an eye make-up! It is the kind of coral shade that I can just pick up when I am on a hurry and will never ever go wrong with!
