A Tale of Two Lippies – Act I

And I said, “What about breakfast at Tiffany’s?” ?

That song always comes to mind when I see Tiffany Blue! I love this shade because it’s a perfect hybrid of femininity and masculinity. Whether you’re sporting the iconic color with clothing, jewelry, or on your face, it’s sure to be eye-catching!

 

When I saw promos for this lipstick, I knew I’d have to have it. I hadn’t purchased any Jeffree Star lip colors before, but I’d heard great things about the quality of the formula. More importantly, I recently re-established my crush on Jeffree after watching a YouTube video featuring him and NikkieTutorials. What a throwback to the days of Myspace! I even saw Jeffree live with Warped Tour in 2009 or 2010. Am I showing my age yet?

 

When the package arrived at my doorstep, I didn’t even give the delivery man time to drive away before I opened the door and greedily grabbed it. Normally, I have a queue of products lined up to review, but I pulled this sucker out of the box and put it on immediately!

 

The packaging is cute, and I really liked the doe-foot applicator. Shockingly, what impressed me most wasn’t the outside, (as you know, I’m a sucker for cutesy) but the inside! I’m talking about the formula, of course. Breakfast at Tiffany’s applied with such precision and opacity that it looked perfect almost instantly. The texture is soft and velvety, which is a welcome difference from a lot of matte liquid lipsticks on the market right now.

 

In the photo above where I’m wearing the shade, I first lined my lips with Pool Boy from OCC. This does make it photograph a little bluer, so you’ll get the truest color impression from the swatch on my hand.

 

The color is gorgeous and super daring – so if you’re not a Bold Betty, it definitely isn’t for you. If you do love your lipsticks with lots of color and a side of fun, be warned that I think this is a limited edition release.

I know it’s early, but I can say for sure that this formula is one of my very favorites. Just a heads up, Jeffree’s instant cult-classic neutral shade Androgyny is re-stocking Feb. 12th. Make sure you get your hands on it before it sells out again!

 

Now that you’ve seen a fantastic liquid lipstick, stay tuned for a review of a popular formula that could use vast improvement. See you soon!
