New Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks from the Summer Chrome Collection

So last night I decided to treat myself to a few of the new Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks from his new Summer Chrome Collection from Beauty Bay. Was so excited for them to arrive this morning, as I got free Next  Day Delivery for spending over £40 (winner!). I chose the shades; Butt Naked, Candyass and Flamboyant, as I have nothing like these shades in my collection at the minute.

Here are the swatches I did with the shades. Butt Naked went on like a dream, this shade is very opaque and doesn’t require layering at all! It dried down super quickly as well. However, Candyass and Flamboyant took a lot of layering to reach full opacity. The 2 metallic shades in this collection (Candyass and Flamboyant) have a strawberry scent (almost smells like strawberry laces). With the Jeffree Star Liquid lipsticks, I do find that the metallic finishes are not as opaque as the others finishes and do require 2/3 layers. I have the shades Pussy Whipped and No Tea No Shade and find that these are very sheers well, as they have a metallic finish (No Tea, No Shade isn’t as sheer as the others as it is a darker shade, however, it does require a second layer). Even though both metallic shades are quite sheer, they are such beautiful colours when they reach full opacity! Flamboyant is my favorite shade, I’ll be definitely be taking it on holiday with me this weekend!

Butt Naked

Butt Naked is a warm peachy nude with a matte finish. This shade would look stunning on anyone who has very fair skin!

Applying this lipstick too A LOT of work. Even though this shade is super opaque, this shade was very streak, so therefore required to go over certain areas to smooth out the streaks. Other than that, this shade is BEAUTIFUL! Super natural, perfect for everyday makeup, and is so comfortable to wear, doesn’t feel dry at all!

Candyass

Candyass is a coral pink shade that has a tone of gold reflex, with a metallic finish. I feel anyone could full with shade off, no matter what your skin tone is! This shade is definitely for everyone!

As I mention in the swatches, this shade is quite sheer, and therefor require at least 2-3 layers. This shade felt very comfortable on the lips and didn’t feel drying at all! Once the colour had been built up, I fell in LOVE! This shade would be perfect for any prom or bridal makeup to add a bit of sparkly to your look!

Flamboyant

Flamboyant is bright metallic coral/red shade with chunky gold reflex. This colour definitely will make a statement! Would look stunning on darker skin tones, and anyone will a tan; perfect to take with you on holiday!

As I said before, the metallic shades are most definitely on the sheer side, but are VERY easy to build up. However, I did find this shade to be quite thick, gloopy and the chunky glitter made the lipstick feel a bit uncomfortable on the lips, in my opinion. Maybe if a lip balm was applied underneath the lipstick, it may make the lipstick feel a bit more comfortable. I will be sure to try this out and report back! Even though this shade has its bad points, it is a stunning colour, I absolutely LOVE the shade!
