Jeffree Star Summer Delight Lip Box from Beautylish
Good morning, everyone! Today we are talking about Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick. I held off a long time on playing with these- many of the original shades just didn’t interest me and to be honest, I still don’t care for the aesthetic of the brand. However, when I saw Beautylish was offering a Summer Delight Lip Box, I pulled the trigger. Please note that the Lip Box is currently out-of-stock but should be returning soon. I did contact customer service but they were unable to give me an estimated date. In the meantime, the shades are available individually on Beautylish.
Side note – the reason I am recommending Beautylish over Jeffree Star’s site is that I love Beautylish’s customer service. That’s just my preference!
Anywho, the Summer Delight Lip Box has three shades: Virginity, Nude Beach and Watermelon Soda. There are two more shades in Jeffree’s Summer collection – 714 and Queen Bee – which are not included in the box. All of the summer Velour Liquid Lipsticks have a watermelon scent.
My favorite thing about the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks is the applicator. Unlike the standard doe foot applicator, this one has a little groove in the middle that helps guide a clean lip line. The formulas of the three shades I tried are all different; I will describe them as we go.
OK, so let’s start with my least favorite – Nude Beach. Nude Beach is a light coral shade. The formula feels thick but still manages to become extremely streaky upon application. When I tried to build the color up through multiple coats, my lips just looks cakey and gross. Additionally, this is not a great color for me.
Virginity, a very light lavender, has a nice formula of medium consistency. It applies fairly opaquely for such a light color. It is not a superb color for my skin tone, but I can make it work with a variety of lip liners.
Watermelon Soda is my favorite of the bunch. It is a very unique coral-pink. This one has a thinner consistency, but you wouldn’t know it when it is applied. It has wonderful pigmentation and just makes the lips look so full and pretty. Watermelon Soda is the most wearable shade for me.
Unfortunately, I’m not a huge fan of the way these Velour Liquid Lipsticks feel on the lips. They just feel very heavy and my lips experience almost a numbness that is a bit uncomfortable. The wear-time is very good, however. These last many hours before fading.
The Beautylish X Jeffree Star Summer Delight Lip Box is a great way to try Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick line. The three shades are very different and unique. While the lipsticks themselves are not my favorite, you may have a different experience!
