It’s been hot these past few days in Southern California, with high temperatures surpassing 100f . Made me think of how I enjoy eating watermelons during summer months it’s so refreshing and sweet! So I decided to swatch up some liquid lipsticks in a watermelon painting.
The liquid lipsticks to create the watermelon swatch were from Colourpop Cosmetics and Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Colourpop Creeper is such a pretty vibrant matte red, mixed with a little Colourpop Vice liquid lipstick to get the pink edges. Colourpop’s Dr. M is the only green but made a nice contrast against the red. Jeffree’s Star Weirdo in black is such the perfect bold black, I loved how the seeds turned out. It was my favorite part plus the bite marks.
I finally ordered Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks because of the recent color they launched in Mannequin. I was always hesitant to buy them before because testing them at the Morphe store in Burbank, CA they seemed to not be completely transfer-proof. Also I was not a fan of the packaging, just reminded me of a kid’s toy. Well finally I ordered a couple colors in Mannequin (nude) and Weirdo (black) from beautylish.com Instead of buying from Jeffree’s site because weirdo was still out of stock and shipping is $6. Beautylish offers free express shipping for spending $35, so I ordered it through there. It was my first order and they shipped super fast! I got my package within 3 days (including the weekend) The packaging was nicely wrapped with tattoo pattern tissue paper, then wrapped in brown paper with a string bow, and included a thank you card.
It was a great experience with Beautylish because this month 2 1/2 online orders I made with either colourpop or ipsy all had issues with shipping the wrong item or completely different order. Beautylish was on top of their game!.
