#TheBloggerMadeMeBuyIt | Jeffree Star & Ofra Liquid Lipsticks


The struggle is real, when you're an actual peasant but you also have a burning shopping addiction that won't quit. And this problem is intensified about a million times when you're regularly exposed to the Blogisphere and press releases - you guys all have such amazing stuff and I'm sat here with my Smart Price Baby Wipes and a bowl of pasta, weeping at the state of my life. 

Every now and again, I fall spectacularly off the wagon and buy stuff I can't afford. Beauty Bay has become my biggest downfall in life. Like, I might not be able to eat, but at least my contour will be on point, you get me? Well that's what happened [again] to inspire this post. I did a boo-boo and three new liquid lipsticks ended up in my possession. Soz NatWest. Blame the bloggers who totes influenced / enabled me to buy these sexy new products - two of my faves actually, EmmysBeautyCave and FrannyMac.

I mean, just look at them. They're that beautiful, it kinda nullifies the pain of having literally one pair of leggings to wear and Smart Price pasta for tea everyday. And they are, hands down, some of the most pigmented rich formulas I've ever tried - especially the Velour Liquid Lipsticks from our Jeffree. I know Jeffers has a pretty dodgy rep and some of the stuff he's said is defo not okay, but after reading Fran's review on his products [and realising they're cruelty free] it was like my brain ruled out all sensible thought processes and just went for gold. And that's how Prom Night and Masochist ended up in my life.

At £16 each, they ain't cheap - but their formula and pigmentation is so insane, it kinda justifies it. They apply pretty liquidy and then settle on the lips for a gorgeous matte finish - and because of this, they're not super drying; so your lips won't be left looking like some mad, scaly-ass dragon. They also last for AGES - there's no amount of J√°ger you can slurp to make these bad boys shift - I've very kindly tested this theory out for you.

Prom Night is my fav. It's the brightest, girliest shade of pink ever - it's almost fluorescent. It applies a bit more liquidy than Masochist but dries into a lovely matte finish. A little goes a long way and the applicator is perfect for a precise application. I'm obsessed, impressed and deeply in love. Jeffree, you might have made some questionable life choices, but holy sh*t, you make a good lippy.

Masochist is a totally different shade than I'd normally go for - I was expecting it to be a bit more magenta toned than it actually is, but it's so vampy and amazing that I will make an exception time & time again for it. It's a sexy, deep rose / red colour, with [I think] slightly blue undertones; so it doesn't make my teeth look pyarrrr yellow. It's pretty amazing and I can totes see why this particular shade is one of Jeffree's bestsellers. An out-out kinda lippy.

Laguna Beach is the most perfect everyday nude liquid lipstick ever. I knew I'd love it after spotting it on Emmy's blog - we are ridiculously similar and I can always rely on her to find the latest and greatest in beauty [and then totes enable me to buy it, haha.] Since it arrived with me, I've worn it most days with my Mac Soar lip liner; for that extra bit of definition. It's a slightly drier formula than our Jeffree's offerings, but it definitely lasts the test of time and applies evenly / easily.

The only bug-bear I have with this Ofra lipstick is its fragrance. It has a very sweet, vanilla ice cream scent - which smells like the Ice Cream Chewits I used to devour and make myself sick off as a child. 

For this reason, the fragrance does make me feel a little bit sick every time I apply it. But once it's on, the fragrance fades and normality resumes. The end results are worth the smell. It's not unpleasant at all - this is totes just a personal preference of mine, but I couldn't not mention it; in the interests of total disclosure and all that. You might love it. I'm just an overly sensitive old bag.

There we have it - three very different, yet equally striking matte liquid lipstick shades. All purchases influenced by bloggers. And do I regret them? Not at all - I've worn Laguna Beach pretty much every day since it arrived with me [holding my nose during application] and the Jeffree lipsticks are a thing of beauty which I can't quite believe I even own.
