I can’t begin to tell you how much I’m disliking Jeffree Star’s Lip Ammunition glamour babes. For an $18 lipstick I was expecting better quality from your brand Mr.Star.
I recently ran out of Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick ($18) in Unicorn blood, and thought to go the traditional lipstick route since the Velour version was sold out on the Jeffree Star website. Not exactly the wisest choice on my part. I should’ve just waited patiently for the restock. Shipping it here took close to 2 weeks! I live in NY, his company is located in California. Really? I think I’ll stick with Beautylish from now on. Plus, they send confirmations and tracking notifications, which was something I did not receive with JS either. Oh well, you live and learn.
Unicorn Blood (Lip Ammunition) is a dark rusty red with a satin finish. The shade itself compliments all skin tones. FYI: L.A. Girl Makes a shade pretty similar, almost identical to Unicorn Blood. Check out their Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss in Secret ($6.00). It’s a good dupe in the Matte sense if you ask me.
I did not find the lipstick case to appear cheap or flimsy looking like some reviewers have mentioned. The lipstick comes housed in a plastic hot pink bullet casing with the Jeffree Star logo in the center and stars wrapping around the bottom. I found the lipstick tube to be a rather cute design and it is actually quite sturdy.
My main issue was the formulation. It’s very streaky, heavy/slippery feeling, not comfortable to wear, and did not go on smoothly or evenly. I had to apply multiple coats (3-4) in order to create a pigmented lip, and still felt like the shade was off. It’s nowhere near as deep as the liquid lipstick. My lips feathered and bled out like crazy after application. The lipstick also has a grainy texture. I never had this experience with a lip product before. It does however, hydrate lips nicely and smells of vanilla, but that’s as good as it gets. Eating was a mess. The color got everywhere (hands and face), as if I actually did murder a unicorn. I did not like this one bit. I love unicorns! It was removed immediately.
I have a few Colourpop lip liners that should go perfectly with Unicorn Blood. Maybe I can incorporate Jeffree Star’s Lip Ammunition as a topper? Give those lips a bit of depth and sheen. What do you think? I can’t let this lipstick go to waste!
