Today is my attempt at a makeup related optical illusion. Now, I want to preface this by saying this really isn’t my strong suit at all and I really don’t have all of the tools for this challenge. I still wanted to give it a go anyway and even though I think this is a complete fail, I wanted to share it with you. I also thought that I should finish all of the FACE Awards challenges because I’d set out to try them all regardless of how challenging they may be for me. So, I hope that we can all have a laugh at my lame attempt at this challenge haha.
By now, I’m sure that you’re aware of how much of a fan I am of Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I am constantly posting about the products and constantly buying most of the newly released items. Today, I wanted to share with you what I have as well as swatches of each item. I hope that you enjoy!

For my first post of 2016, I thought I’d share with you my makeup for the New Year’s Eve party that I attended! I accidentally made all of my outfit blue themed haha. I have had so many wonderful opportunities in 2015 and I have so many more in this new year. I’m so excited to share it all with you! I have also worn a lot of Jeffree Star in 2015 and I’ve been absolutely loving it. Hopefully this year I’ll expand my collection even more! On to the makeup.
Today, I’m sharing a very special post with you guys! I collaborated with my best buddy Zoe from NewbytoBeauty to show you guys how Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny looks on each of us. We are both quite pale girls but we both have different undertones and we do our makeup quite differently. I also have dark hair and she has blonde hair so there’s always that. I know a tonne of people who are pale were worried that this colour wouldn’t suit them but because it was limited edition in the Christmas collection, they still bought it or wanted to buy it. A few days ago, Jeffree told his followers on Instagram that he’d be making Androgyny permanent and it is set to be rereleased in Februrary! I purchased my lipsticks from the holiday collection from Rouche Boutique and they should be stocking Androgyny when it is rereleased 🙂 So, lets get on to the swatches!
When swatches started appearing in the beauty groups, I was so worried that this shade wasn’t going to suit me. It was advertised as a dusty rose colour, which is pretty much the most popular lipstick colour of the minute aha. However, personal swatches were showing that the shade was much more brown than anyone had first anticipated. In fact, all of the shades (except Drug Lord) were darker than how they were originally advertised. I know that lip colours look different on different people and they’ll especially look darker on light skin tones but there was quite a big difference in actual lip colour versus advertised lip colour.
The colour is really beautiful and even though it was different to what we were expecting to receive, I still don’t regret purchasing it at all and I think that it is still quite wearable. I don’t own anything quite like it and I love the way that it looks on me. I also love the way that it looks on Zoe, but she can pull off pretty much any lip colour, I’m so jealous haha.
To me, I think that the shades that were released in this Christmas collections aren’t of the same quality as the other permanent colours. They transfer more than the others and seem to wear differently but that could also be due to my lips not being in the best shape over these last few weeks since starting my intensive course. If you picked any of the colours up and noticed the same thing, let me know.
I hope that those of you who were able to get Androgyny with this Christmas collection are enjoying your lipstick! I hope that those of you who are still looking to get it when it is rereleased don’t have too much FOMO (fear of missing out) over not getting Androgyny with the small amount of people who were able to pick this shade up.
