Sorry about the lack of posts this week, I’ve been fighting an annoying cold and lacking energy. Today I’m pretending to not be sick though, which hopefully will trick my body to get the hint and fire back up to my usual self. Anyway, I wanted to go into detail about a lipstick I have been absolutely loving lately.
I picked up the Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Christmas Cookie a couple weeks ago. When the collection was revealed, this was described as a shade between Mannequin & Celebrity Skin, I was sold. There have been times when I have seen someone wearing both of those shades and wanted them, but couldn’t decide between the two. JS Cosmetics marketing was almost scary specific… and right on point to sell me.
Christmas Cookie has been a great purchase and I have to stop myself from reaching for it every time I do my makeup. The formula of this lipstick is pigmented, long lasting, do not flake off, and one of the best I own. I would compare it to Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stains, which are top notch in my opinion. This one is probably even a little better than those, but a bit more expensive at $18 each.
The color is a basic neutral nude. The first day I swatched it when I was pale and it came off a bit peachy, very similar to MAC Lady Be Good. When dried down all the way, Christmas Cookie has a tad more light pink and less brown than Lady Be Good. If I was wearing them though it wouldn’t be a noticeable difference. It took me quite a lot of swatching to find any exact dupes in my collection. I think this is because usually I buy what I consider “interesting” nudes that have a grey, mauve, red, or brown undertone. This one having a peach pink color makes it a little unique in my opinion.
I am drawn to sleek sophisticated packaging on cosmetics usually, so the sparkly pink packaging was a little over the top for me. It is beautiful though, and the sparkles fade all the way down to the bottom. If you have been thinking of getting this lipstick, I would definitely say go for it. It is extremely wearable and the formula is comfortable. The quality makes me more likely to purchase more lipsticks from this line. I have included photos of a makeup look I did while wearing this so you can see the lipstick how it looks on my lips. Sorry about the sideways photos… ever since I switched over to self hosted they are uploading like this.
