Jeffree Star You.Better.Work. Liquid Lipstick Collection 2017

Hi friends and all new subscribers! Today I waited anxiously by the door for the Jeffree Star Summer 2017 collection. I bought this set from Beautylish because of the issues I had trying to buy the Jeffree and Manny collab off of his site. This collection was $105 and qualified for free two-day shipping. I ordered it at 1:00 PM EST and they shipped it out by 5:30 PM the same day. Beautylish has great shipping and their customer service is so good. I didn’t grab the complete vault because $195 is a lot of money and I’m not a fan of regular lipsticks so I wasn’t going to be using a lot of the products in the vault. 

Let me start by saying that this year’s formula is definitely improved from last year’s 2016 set. I enjoyed the colors from last year but the formula made me so freaking sad. This year the metallic shades, Flamboyant and Candyass, are the only two that are scented. They smell like strawberries and, I wanted to drink them. 

Here is what it looked like in the packaging. Beautylish has the tissue paper that has all of Jeffree’s tattoos all over it.
Here is the box that it comes in. It is a pretty frosted pink box that is a decent size. It magnetizes shut which is nice.
When you open the box all the liquid lipsticks are in their own individual packaging.
When you take them out of their boxes please take note that these do not fit in very snug. Don’t go shaking the box around if you plan to store them like this. 😂😂
Here they are out of the box and looking pretty. They have chrome toppers and the dark pink logo font.
Here is the bottom of the lipsticks. I only used one since they all have the same set up. It has the shade name, brand name and how many fluid ounces it is. Keep note of the bottoms just in case you buy from another place and aren’t sure if yours is a fake or not.
This is what the applicator looks like. It is a slanted doe foot with a bit of flex to it. It picks up a decent amount of product and applies it smoothly. I apologize for my nails. Camping does that to a lady. Haha.

Before we talk swatches I wanted to show you box shots before all of that just in case all these sell out and you have to buy from a third party retailer. I used shade ‘Butt Naked’ as my reference. 

Here is the front of the box. You can see the chrome quality the box has along with the pink logo.
This side of the box describes the product as vegan, cruelty-free, matte, long lasting and extreme beauty. It has instructions to follow and the company distribution information.
This side of the box has Jeffree’s website, YouTube and Instagram. It also has the cruelty-free bunny logo.
This side has the name of the shade, a reminder to shake the lipstick and the ingredient list. There is also a UPC. 
This picture is very important. The bottom of the box has the batch codes for authenticity. For Butt Naked and You. Better. Work., the serial code is 7D1, Calabasas is 7E2, Venus Flytrap, Family Jewels and Hunty, is 7D2 and the metallics, Candyass and Flamboyant do not have serial codes.

For the swatches, I included an arm swatch of all the shades and one of those fancy lip swatch collages! Here we go!

These were taken in the sunlight through my window. They are not enhanced in any way. Okay, the lightest shade is Butt Naked. This is a matte light peachy beige nude shade. It actually compliments my skin tone so I was very with it. Calabasas got it’s name from where Jeffree lives in California. This is a matte dark plum shade that reminds me of a lighter Androgyny. Venus Flytrap is an electric greenish yellow matte. I adore how unique this shade is. It looks great on! It does take more than one coat to be really bold but it is so worth it. Family Jewels is next. This shade is a brownish plum shade. If Dominatrix and Androgyny had a baby, it would be Family Jewels. Hunty is of course, great. This dark nude compliments my olive skin tone without skipping on coverage and pigment. You. Better. Work. was the shade that had me the most excited for this launch. I adore all shades of purple in lipstick and this bright purple was a necessary purchase for my everyday looks. Flamboyant is a bright red with red and silver metallic qualities in it. Candyass is a light coral pink with gold and silver sparkles in it. Both of these metallics go on smooth and light and smell wonderful. 
Here are the lip swatches of all the shades. The top row is Butt Naked and Hunty. Row two is Calabasas and You. Better. Work. Row three is Venus Flytrap and Candyass. The last row is Family Jewels and Flamboyant.

I hope you enjoyed this really long review and reveal of the products. Hopefully this was useful if you were still wondering what to purchase. Xo
