Review: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick

Hey guys!

I think that you guys are well aware of my obsession with Jeffree Star’s Blue Velvet Velour Liquid Lipstick. Well, I thought that it was about time that I bought a few more shades so that I could make a little bit of a review and swatch post for you all! I know that this won’t be my last Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick post because there are a few more shades in the current line that I want to pick up and there will probably be new shades that I will need over time. Sorry, Mum.


Rouche Boutique sell almost every colour available and because they are Australian based, I purchase my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks through them. Also, when you convert the USD to AUD and then add the extra shipping, it works out to be a similar price anyway. I just purchased I’m Royalty, one of their newest shades, Masochist, and Blow Pony. I love my purples and believe it or not, I don’t own any colours that even come close to any of these shades that I purchased.

Here are all of the colours swatched on my arms

So now I’m going to show you all what the colours look like on my lips!


Here is Blue Velvet on my lips. You’ll recognise this one from my Liptember posts because it was quite a popular shade for me to wear. It was such an odd first choice of lipstick but I didn’t own any Blue lipstick quite like this at the time of purchase and I just thought that it was so pretty. I didn’t expect to get anywhere near as much wear out of it as I have. I really love the way that it looks on me and I’ve so far loved how it looks on everyone else! Something about it just looks awesome on everyone.


A lot of people have said that the Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lipstick in Jellies is a dupe for this shade and while it may be in the same colour, not all blues were made alike #50ShadesOfBlue. I have a comparison swatch here for you guys so that you can all see the difference. CP Jellies has a much warmer base to it and for that reason, I do not like the way that it looks on me. I still think that it’s cool but it isn’t everything that I had hoped for. Blue Velvet, however, was everything that I’d hoped for. It just sucks that it is vastly more expensive than the Colour Pop Ultra Mattes haha.


Here is I’m Royalty on my lips. I don’t own any purple that is as purple as this lipstick. I swatched it on my arm next to MAC Heroine, Australis TOK-I-O, etc. and they all looked pink compared to this colour and I always thought of those shades as too purple to suit me even though I love them. However, this is surprisingly wearable! It is totally a statement lipstick, that’s for sure, but I think that it will really suit a lot of people because it is so cool toned purple.


Here is Masochist on my lips. When I first got my new package from Rouche Boutique, I just had to put this shade on. It is so gorgeous and I can’t stop looking at this photo. It is basically my new favourite photo of myself because I can’t believe how much I love this colour on me. It is a medium-dark pink and I just think that it is super flattering. The only negative that I have about this product is the name. I know Jeffree tries to push boundaries with shades and names but yeah, I’m not so down for this name, like I wasn’t down for Abused. Regardless, this is still a beautiful shade and I would highly recommend it!


Here is Blow Pony on my lips. I really love this colour! I totally tried to match my jumper to my lipstick in this photo and I suppose that it paid off because the one and only Jeffree Star liked my photo and my instagram blew up. My boyfriend really loves this lipstick on me too, which is a total bonus, in my opinion. If you love your purple lips and aren’t game enough to wear as purple a shade as I’m Royalty, then I’d recommend giving this shade a go 🙂

The coolest thing about this product is that it is vegan, cruelty-free and lip and eye safe. You can wear any of the lip sticks as eye liners. That is so cool!!! I was thinking about doing an eye liner look with Blue Velvet but I wasn’t sure if I could. So now you can pretty up your lips and your eyes with this gorgeous product!


So that is it for my current collection of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. I am really looking forward to the Christmas collection, namely Doll Parts and Androgyny. Are you excited for any of the Christmas shades and which currently available shades would you recommend that I pick up next?

I hope that you’re having a lovely day!

Big, Bold and Beautiful! Liptember Recommendations

Hey guys!

In a week’s time, I will be starting my month of bold lip colours, Liptember. I didn’t realise it was so close! The colours that you can choose for Liptember are; blue, green, orange, red, purple, yellow and pink. I’m ready and I’m going to share with you some shades that can help you to be prepared for the big, bold and beautiful month of September!


Australis Velourlips in MAL-I-BOO, NY-CEE, TOK-I-O and RIO-D.


Picture from Ma Sucree’s Makeup Musings

It has been very evident on this blog that I adore the Australis Velourlips, so naturally, I’d want to wear them as much as humanly possible and incorporate them into my Liptember challenge. I actually don’t own MAL-I-BOO and RIO-D, which is why I wanted to use another photo to share them with you all but I think that at some point during Liptember, I’ll probably pick the shades up. I wear the other two shades regularly and can’t recommend them enough. Make sure you apply a lip balm before applying these so that your lips don’t dry out too much! You can purchase these from Australis or Priceline!


NYX Macaron Lippies


I own Blue Velvet, Violet, Pistachio and Chambord and I would recommend all of them. They are a cream finish, which can be problematic when you are trying to not get this kind of colour all over your face haha. The shades that I own are very pigmented and I’ve only heard that Citron and Key Lime have pigment issues. All of the colours that I own stain the lips, so you can even dab them with a tissue and they should still be opaque. You can purchase these from all over the place, unfortunately they don’t sell this line at Target in Australia, from memory. They do, however, sell the Wicked Lippies, although I don’t know that I would really recommend them. They do have some nice colours but the pigmentation is all over the place hahaha.


Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Blue Velvet, Redrum, I’m Royalty and Anna Nicole



Zoe from NewbyToBeauty owns pretty much every colour of these Jeffree Star Lipsticks and I just recently bought Blue Velvet for myself. These lipsticks have so much hype online and I think that it is very deserved. The colours are stunning and they’re great quality for the money that you play. I buy my Jeffree Star lipsticks from Rouche Boutique but you can also buy them directly from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I’d recommend buying them from Rouche though because they are based in Australia, they have great customer service and they have fast shipping! What more could you want?


Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lips in Mr. Blonde, Jellies, Dr. M and Be-Dazzled


There are so many more shades of these Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks but I thought I would just stick to the most recently released shades, which are actually shades that I picked up! I’m actually waiting on Jellies, Dr. M, Clueless and Midi, which I will be doing a review post on very soon. Just waiting on good ol’ reliable AUSPost (can you feel the sarcasm?).
I’ve heard some mixed opinions on these, most of the criticism comes from the fact that they are really drying but I don’t mind that. I’ve dealt with those Me Now Lip colours so I think that these will be fine. All matte lipsticks are drying, it comes with the finish but it is something to think about. These are incredibly cheap, which is why I wanted to mention them. But the shipping to Australia is rather expensive. You can purchase these from Colour Pop Cosmetics.


There are a lot of other brands bringing out similar colours like Pretty Zombie Cosmetics, LA Splash, Coloured Raine, etc. but I haven’t tried out the brand and neither have any of my close friends. Even BH Cosmetics have just brought out a line of Pop Art lipsticks, which feature similar colours, which might be of interest. I also know that MAC does amazing reds and has just brought out a blue with their recent Mattes collection.

I hope that this has helped some of you get ideas for Liptember or might just help you find where to buy unusual lip colours! I hope that you’re all having a beautiful day!

Review: Australis Velourlips + Lip swatches

I’ve been working my way through this brand since the start of this year and I am absolutely loving every minute of it. Recently, I have been testing out the Australis Velourlips, a matte lip cream.


Top to Bottom: TOK-I-O, PA-REE, NY-CEE.

These are very similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, Bourjois Lip Creams, Saavy’s Matte Creams and Lime Crime’s Velvetines. They are designed to be a highly pigmented lip colour that dries completely matte. All of the colours in this line are quite bold, except maybe the nude but even that colour stands out quite a bit! I’ve purchased TOK-I-O (purple), PA-REE (nude), and NY-CEE (red), and I love them all.

Each of them comes with a doe foot applicator for ease of application but you’ll want to be extremely cautious because these are very pigmented so you will want to avoid making a mistake at all costs haha. You may want to line your lips before if that helps you. They smell like Cherry flavoured Starburst lollies or Raspberry Schweppes, which I adore. The colours I own are very pigmented but I think that the nude may be a tiny bit less pigmented than the rest, but it is certainly still pigmented. These last absolutely AGES, I have wore all of these for an entire day and it took a lot of eating to take this off. I didn’t even need to reapply. These have a fantastic staying power and in my experience, once fully dry, they don’t transfer at all.


Worn: TOK-I-O

This is my most recent purchase and I bought it because I really love purple and I had loved the others I’d purchased. I didn’t think I was going to like this much on me because I didn’t think the Saavy lip cream in the purple shade suited me all that well and it was certainly a more wearable colour but I actually prefer this one because its a solid purple where the other is more pink purple.

Worn: PA-REE

This was my first Velourlips purchased. I bought it after watching Brittany Saunders talk about it on Youtube and it looked similar to MAC Modesty and NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu, two nudes that work on my skin tone. I like it a lot but I don’t wear it too much because I think some days it doesn’t suit me but I’m working on it haha.

Worn: NY-CEE

This is my favourite of the three I own. It is a perfect red on it me and because it stays on so long, I am so comfortable just wearing it on uni days and not thinking about if my lipstick is disappearing on me. I would recommend trying this one if you like reds or are looking to try and of these. This seems to be the safest option as far as the bold colours go.

I would definitely recommend this product. I only wish that they had more colours! They are only $9.95 at Priceline and they are currently on sale for $6 or $7, so I’d definitely go check them out if you haven’t. They are a little bit drying so just put a lip balm on five minutes before applying this lip product.

Hope you’re all having a good day.


RIP Robin Williams ❤
