Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick ($18 USD) in Christmas Cookie is a limited edition colour (although still available on JSC.com and beautylish) that was anniversaried from holiday 2017 into 2018 (and hopefully 2019 and beyond!)
In typical Jeffree Star velour liquid lipstick fashion, his formula is matte, opaque, creamy, pigmented (but not blotchy) and most important of all, comfortable! This was my biggest issue with liquid lipsticks – how tight, dry, heavy and uncomfortable they would feel. When I gave the JSC formula a try, I was pleasantly surprised as this is the only liquid lipstick I can wear.
I have dry lips so regardless of how good the formula is, I always need to exfoliate my lips before wearing a matte lip colour. Matte lip colours are always the least flattering so ensuring that the base is smooth will create a far superior application and just look better on!
The applicator is a dome foot with a scoop in the center to capture the product. I really love this applicator and wish more lip gloss companies made these! I’m over the flat paddle dome foot applicators
Christmas Cookie is an insanely beautiful medium dusty rose that has the perfect blend of brown and rose to that looks super natural on. My lips are quite rosy to begin with so while this colour looks quite dark swatched, when applied, the colour is a lot softer.
I did a review of Celebrity Skin (linked here) that is similar but more brown, less rose than Christmas Cookie.
Overall, this is a beautiful colour and amazing formula – I cant ask for more! <3
