Jeffree Star Gemini Review & Swatch

I know there has been a lot of controversy surrounding Jeffree Star at the moment but I've had this post drafted for a while - so I've decided to bite the bullet and post it. In no way am I condoning or agreeing with Jeffree Star and this is just a review and swatch of his product alone. 

My lovely friend Laura kindly let me jump in on her Jeffree Star order and since I'm lacking in liquid lipsticks I just couldn't say no. I decided that I really wanted Gemini and so we patiently awaited for the restock! I've never tried a Jeffree Star lipstick but I had heard lots of postive reviews that I just couldn't wait to try them out myself. Also in case other people haven't tried Jeffree Star cosmetics, they are 100% vegan & cruelty free.

Gemini | $18
Gemini is a matte lipstick and rather quick drying which is just what you need out of a liquid lipstick! Overall, I don't find the formula dries my lips, however, I can feel that the product is there, it's as if it almost dries sticky. It is a warm toned nude with hints of brown and I just think it is a perfect shade. I don't have anything even similar to this colour in my lipstick collection and my first impression of this brand is definitely positive. 

Reading the website suggests for application to exfoliate with lip scrub and then apply to bare lips, so I will definitely give this a try for the next application and see if this makes a difference to the feeling of stickiness.
