Jeffree Star Cosmetics' Weirdo: The Best Damn Liquid Lipstick You'll Ever Buy.

Hey, friends! So, yesterday I was minding my own business, enjoying my day off when BAM, two knocks at the door signaled the delivery I had been waiting for with inappropriate enthusiasm. After restraining myself from kissing the Postman who delivered my little bundle of joy, I tore open the packaging to reveal my Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Weirdo, then promptly fell in love.

Irritatingly, I had taken the day's make up off not even an hour before this arrived, but that wasn't stopping me putting this straight on my face. Determined to put out a review, and too enamoured to remove it, I kept this baby on all night to test it's performance - here's everything you need to know!

Let's talk formula, which is for me the most important part of a liquid lipstick - particularly one this dark. There's nowhere to hide with a bold lip; if your formula is weak, your lip game is weak. As soon as I started applying the colour I audibly squeaked over the consistency; this is the thinnest, smoothest liquid lipstick I have ever used. The doe foot applicator slid over my lips like they had never seen a dry patch in their life. Moreover, the sheerness in viscosity is not at all mirrored in opacity - one swipe of this and my lips were jet black. Can you half tell I'm obsessed? Ten points to you, Jeffree Star, you've officially taken out top spot for my favourite liquid lippie.

Application-wise, this couldn't be easier; all of the swatch photos in this post were taken sans liner - in my haste to get this bad boy on my lips - and I managed to achieve pretty clean lines with minimal fuss. Personally, I like to use a lip liner whenever I wear lipstick, which works too! If there isn't a black lip pencil in your arsenal, fear not, kohl eyeliner will do the trick!

Before I dared to wear this beauty out in the real world, I put it through its paces around my house to see how it stayed and reapplied. Spoiler alert, no re-application was needed. At all. I wore the lipstick for a total of six hours and it didn't budge; even through eating, drinking and chatting animatedly with my best friend, there was nothing worth patching up. This thing is like beautiful cement. I was beyond impressed, and naturally took this as a personal challenge to see if I could cause it to wear off. In the end, I wore it into the shower, which only removed patches from the middle. So, in other words, I have no qualms about wearing this colour on a long day out.

At this point I was beginning to fear for the removal process, picturing myself rubbing my lips raw only to find a black residue still left behind - I'm happy to report I couldn't have been more wrong! A swipe or two of a cotton pad covered in micellar water wiped the colour right off with no staining or smudging. Hear that? That's me weeping tears of joy.

In the interest of keeping these reviews reliable, I also like to include any faults I see in a particular product, but in this case I am yet to find one - unless you count the strictly online availability, but I'm used to that given that I live in Australia. I cannot recommend this product highly enough! If you're not ready for a black lip, head on over to the website and browse the gorgeous range of colours available - you won't regret it, scouts honour.

Do you have any favourite black lip products? Let me know!
