Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny, liquid lipstick, review, beauty,

Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a brand that I discovered through Instagram (the power of social media) and I instantly fell in love with this shade 'Androgyny'. It is the most perfect dusty rose colour which looks different on nearly every single skintone. This shade is legit one of my holy grails and I'm so glad I picked up two. Jeffree released this shade as limited edition but it became so popular that he made it permanent, which I am more than happy about as my first tube is nearly finished.

I purchased mine from Cocktail Cosmetics and I hope they start sellling the new shades Jeffree has released recently because I need Gemini! Anyways, the packaging is really sleek and feels quite sturdy even though its glass so I know its prone to smashing, which I hope it never does. I really like the limited edition packaging and don't know which one I prefer more.

As you can see, my Androgyny is very much truly loved! It has a doe foot applicator but it's slightly bigger than Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks in that the end of it is bigger and I feel like this affects the way that I apply it a lot because I have to be so careful applying Androgyny as otherwise I can apply wayyyy too much. That's the only thing that lets it down because this lipstick lasts through everything and I mean everything. It lasted through me drinking through a straw, and even though it did leave a tiny bit of a stain, it looked more than perfect on my lips. It even lasted through me having two burgers and some chips and usually grease tends to remove liquid lipsticks so I was more than shocked when I saw it stay put. I did find it strange how it only took me one wipe of micellar water to remove it though considering it lasted all day.

It feels a bit heavy when it dries. I mean, I definitely feel it throughout the day but it's nothing bad. I've read reviews of how layering the liquid lipstick results in it being flakey and streaky etc., but I did layer it even though it looked more than perfect so I could test this and it didn't turn flakey or streaky or whatever than me. All in all, Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny is worth every penny. Heck, if it cost more than £14 and was near the £30 mark I'd still purchase it!

Have you tried any liquid lipsticks by Jeffree Stars? What did you think of them?

April Favourites

monthly favourites, april favourites,

This month has gone by so fast and so much has happened this month too. I went to Brighton where I discovered hm's beauty range! I picked up a few eyeshadows and the one that has really stuck out for me is gingerbread. It's a beautiful warm brown shade that I use as a transition and a crease shade! These eyeshadows are so ridiculously soft which allows them to blend easily but it does have a tonne of fall out but I guess we can't always get what we want. From Brighton, I also picked up DKNY's Pure Perfume which just smells amazing and I cannot get enough of it. I picked it up on sale for half price so I hope it doesn't get discontinued soon. Another perfume I also picked was YSL's Black Opium which is the best perfume out there, I cannot stop wearing this either. I think this will be my go-to perfume this year.

I've been all about liquid lipsticks this month and have been wearing Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Iced Mocha. It's a muted brown shade on my skintone and looks so natural, almost like a nude. I wear this shade interchangeably with Jeffree Stars Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny which is one of my holy grails. It's such a beaut shade!

I recently picked up Soap and Glory's Kick Ass Powder and have been setting my under eyes and my entire face with this. I totally get the hype with this powder as it just perfectly sets everything. I also picked up Lipcote Lipstick Sealer which mattifies your lipstick. I did make the mistake of wearing two layers of this the other day and oh my god, my lips felt drier than the Sahara desert. I do highly recommend this but don't make the same mistake as me because your lips won't love you for it. Another product I've bought recently was Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel which makes your skin feel baby-bottom soft. I use a pea-sized amount and just apply it to my face as if it was moisturiser. The texture is kind of weird as it feels like oil but it's not oil and at the same time it's like gel? It dries clear within a minute or so and then the next morning you wash and cleanse your face and it feels so soft, like it's never been before.

What have you been loving this past month?
