This is my first ever Jeffree Star cosmetic to try so I was super excited to find them on Beautylish. I got it for $18. I love the crazy unique names he gives his shades! I also really want to try the “Deceased” and “Designer Blood” shades soon.
The shade, Candyass is a shimmery pinkish mauve shade and contains a lot of gold microglitter, which I noticed more when I wiped the swatch (shown below) off.
I think the product goes on smoothly with the applicator it comes with. Sometimes though, the color comes out in a clump you just have to even it out I’m guessing that’s why the directions on the tube say to give it a good shake for 5 seconds before using.
A problem I have with this is the sticky feeling it leaves on my lips once it dries. I don’t know if its because I have yet to get a good lip primer or not, but I usually have to top it off with some clear gloss. It’s hard for me to complain about how long the color stays put, because I vape nearly all day and most of the lipstick either comes off on my e-cig or cups of soda…lol. This color on me personally, is a little too loud for my line of work (medical records department) so I will use this on the weekends or at night. From what I can tell by looking at his line, I am actually pretty certain that most all of his unique colors would be too much for day to day wear! I really don’t think I could pull off the Black Onyx body frost on a normal work day!
I recently put in an order from Sephora for a lip stain to try since I’m hard on the sticks, so I can’t wait to see how that compares to traditional creams and glosses.
