Baby Update and Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks Reviewand Swatches

Long time no blog post! I've been so busy preparing for the baby's arrival and finally having my baby girl that I haven't had much time to sit and blog. I have still been trying new products, well mostly before I gave birth because honestly I haven't had time to try makeup let alone wear any since I've had her. In case you were wondering I had her on April 17 at 12:07pm. She was 7lbs 14oz and 19 inches long. We named her Alexia Margaret Pallan. The crazy thing is she was born on my oldest sons birthday, so they share the same birthday, 11 years apart! 
As real as it gets! 
4 Moms MamaRoo! I'll have a review on this soon because I have some things to share about this! 
Here is my sweet little Princess! I'm so in love with her! :)

So of course having a newborn hasn't given me much time to blog but I finally got a moment to sit and write so I'm here sharing some great new lip products!

I'm sure you have all heard who Jeffree Star is and his cosmetic line of liquid lipsticks, unless you live under a rock lol jk!! 

I've known his name since the myspace days! Yes I'm taking it back lol! I remember seeing his pics, hair, makeup, and just visually loving what I saw. The bright bold colors of his whole persona drew me in! Although I never really followed his career or what he was doing but that recently changed through instagram. His images started showing up on my feed and I learned that he was coming out with his own makeup line. For some reason I didn't really jump at his products right away. I decided to finally take the plunge and ordered some lipsticks with his last launch.

I ordered the two new shades that he released in Queen Supreme and 714 and I also ordered Redrum.
Queen Supreme, 714, Redrum

Wearing Queen Supreme

Queen Supreme has quickly become my favorite pink lipstick! It's my go to pink at the moment. It's such a fun bright cool pink. It's perfect for Spring!

Wearing Redrum
Redrum is a gorgeous classic red. I love this shade as well! This is a great neutral red. It's not too orange or blue based. It's perfect!

714

714 is a bright neon apricot shade. This is my least favorite of the bunch. I feel like the color doesn't work well with my complexion. It also has a very thin watery texture and requires more than one application to get even coverage. It doesn't apply as opaque as the other two. 

Queen Supreme and Redrum both apply very opaque and evenly. They dry down to a matte finish quickly, while 714 takes quite a bit longer to set. 

As you can see it tends to settle into the lines of your lips. If you have very dry lips this is going to make for an unattractive look. I don't have dry lips but it sure appears that way with this shade. 

These have a very flexible sponge tip applicator. I was kinda iffy about the flexible applicator but I found it was easy to get a precise application. 

The packaging is adorable! 

These are $18 each and can be found on jeffreestarcosmetics.com

Overall I'm loving Queen Supreme and Redrum and definitely recommend these two. I just ordered two more Velour liquid lipsticks in I'm Royalty and Prom Night and will have swatches and a review on those soon! 

Have you purchased any Velour Liquid Lipsticks? What are your thoughts on these??
