Jeffree Star Holiday Collection: My Picks

I’m obsessed with Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I’ll admit it. I first tried one of his liquid lipsticks back when the launched his Summer collection. Then, more recently I tried out his very first eyeshadow palette, Beauty Killer. But now, I have three amazing new shades of his Velour Liquid Lipstick to try out! The holiday collection recently launched on Beauty Bay, and here are my favourites!

The three I had to get my hands on from the Jeffree Star collection were Checkmate, Pumpkin Pie and Designer Blood. I’m a sucker for red lipsticks, but I don’t have any liquid to matte, so when I saw how bright and festive Checkmate was, I really wanted to add it to my collection!

Originally, I was only going to purchase Checkmate from the collection. When I saw Pumpkin Pie swatched on the Beauty Bay website, I didn’t think much of it. It wasn’t until I went onto the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Instagram page and saw it swatched that I fell in love. It was the perfect terracotta orange brown and it has pink specs of glitter through it!

Unicorn Blood is (I believe) Jeffree’s best selling liquid lipstick. I always wanted to get my hands on it, but it is always (ALWAYS) sold out. When I saw Designer Blood swatched I thought it was so beautiful! It’s not a straight deep burgundy red, but it has a gold sheen to it in the light, perfect for this time of the year.

As typical per Jeffree’s formula they take a few minutes to dry down completely on the lips, but one they’re dry they really are extremely long lasting. I wore Pumpkin Pie for at least 12 hours (and had two meals in this time) and it was still on my lips.

Checkmate is the only one that is scented, I’m not exactly sure what the ‘official’ scent is, but to me it smells like strawberry milkshake. It’s very nice! The other two just smell of general cosmetics,  a little bit chemical-like but it’s definitely not overpowering or a ‘bad’ smell.

As you can see they crack just a liiiiiiittle bit. But I think this is partly my fault too, as my lips are dying in the cold weather. I think out of these three Pumpkin Pie is my favourite! Mainly because I have nothing like it in my collection!

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you did, please leave a like! Did you see all the shades from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Holiday Collection? Which were YOUR favourites? x
