Jeffree Star Nudes – Celebrity Skin, Posh Spice, Androgyny, Scorpio and Dominatrix Review & Swatches

Jeffree Star Nudes – Celebrity Skin, Posh Spice, Androgyny, Scorpio and Dominatrix Review & Swatches

Jeffree-Star-Celebrity-Skin-Posh-Spice-Androgyny-Scorpio-Dominatrix

I love the formula of Jeffree Star’s Velour liquid lipsticks. I still feel they’re some of the best formulas on the market. They cost £16 from UK Suppliers or $18 from Jeffree’s website.

I find all of these long-lasting, very comfortable to wear and they don’t overemphasise my lip texture. I do think these are well worth the cost. Today we’re looking at 5 of the more nude shades, Celebrity skin, Posh Spice, Androgyny, Scorpio and Dominatrix.

Jeffree-Star-all

Celebrity Skin is a pinky nude on me. He calls it a soft brown with a peach undertone and I can totally see it. I like this as a nude on me.

Next up os Posh Spice. This is your griege shade with a hint of taupe. I like it but the grey bit seems to get lost on me. I like this for when I want a lipstick that makes me look dead on the outside too.

Androgyny is the shade of my dreams. Slightly grey, slightly plum and suits me so well. I adore this colour.

Scorpio is a grey-toned purple that I love. I have a few issues with coverage with this colour as you can see but I do love it. A second layer clears that up but does make it a little bit drying.

Dominatrix is a deep chocolate brown. It’s a stunning colour on the lips. Dark but warm for when you need a dark colour that isn’t black. I found this one to be a little dryer in the formula but not on the lips.

They cost £16 from UK Suppliers or $18 from Jeffree’s website. Shipping costs from $8 and increases with the package size. It does not include customs charges so expect an extra £8 and 20% on top of the cost.

I find all of these long-lasting, very comfortable to wear and they don’t overemphasise my lip texture. I do think these are well worth the cost. Today we’re looking at 5 of the more unusual shades, Mistletoe, Dirty Money, Blue Velvet, Abused and Weirdo.

Jeffree-Star-Mistletoe-Swatch

Mistletoe was a limited edition shade which is a primary green colour. This one has great coverage as you can see. It was perfect for the Christmas season

Jeffree-Star-Dirty-Money-Swatch

Dirty Money was one of the first shades and it’s a dirty green colour. If you’re American it’s apparently the same colour as money. I really like this shade on me.

Jeffree-Star-Blue-Velvet-Swatch

Blue Velvet is a bright primary blue. I adore this shade. It has little coverage issues and doesn’t really smudge.

Jeffree-Star-Abused-Swatch

Abused is one of the more controversial shades. It’s a navy blue and could be considered the colour of a bruise. This is not the only reason it’s controversial though. It smells like aniseed and apparently, there is a bruise cream in America that smells like it. Again I like this shade as it’s on the deeper end when black is too much.

Jeffree-Star-Werido-Swatch

Speaking of black meet Weirdo. Despite the picture showing it as shiny (I clearly didn’t let it dry long enough) it’s not. It’s matte black. My little Goth heart loves this shade. It doesn’t smudge or budge.

They cost £16 from UK Suppliers or $18 from Jeffree’s website. Shipping costs from $8 and increases with the package size. It does not include customs charges so expect an extra £8 and 20% on top of the cost.

Speckle Nail Polish by Illamasqua Review

Speckle Nail Polish by Illamasqua Review

Here is a swatch of Illamasqua’s Limited Edition Speckle nail polish. Unfortunately it is no longer available from the Illamasqua website.

Speckle is a lilac nail polish with small black glitter in it. They are the to simulate the effects of egg shells.

It has a good opaque finish in two coats is a lovely lilac colour. Due to the black glitter, it is slightly uneven when placed on the nail. If you want high shine and to smooth the surface you’re going to need a top coat.

The advantage of it being textured is it’s slightly more chip resistant than your basic polishes.

The disadvantage is it’s a nightmare to take off. It’s the same with any polish with glitter in.

I do love this polish though and if you can get it. Go for it.
