intro

Hi and welcome! This is Black Saliva, a style focused blog written by Viivi Vanessa R.

I'm a 24 year old girl from Helsinki, Finland and this blog is my own little space on the internet where I can share my thoughts, outfits and write a bit about my life and stuff that I do.

For first timers, I'd say take a quick look at ABOUT ME and get to know me a little before browsing through my posts.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and leave me a comment.
Enjoy your stay!

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick review + tips for lip lining


Yooo! I have a product that I want to review for you. It's a velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star and you've already seen me wearing it in a couple of my previous posts. I follow Jeffree on Instagram, not because of his music but because I like the makeup stuff he posts, so when he first started posting about his own cosmetics brand and these lipsticks, I took a mental note to keep an eye on the process because it seemed interesting.

After the long wait was finally over and these were released, there was 3 different colors to choose from and a bundle that included all three colors. I was first thinking about getting all three, but changed my mind because one of the colors was neon pink and I felt like I might not have use for it... So in the end I only bought my favourite color of the bunch, which is this gorgeous shade of purple; I'm Royalty. I love purple lipsticks so much.

The packaging is really cute and reminds me of Barbie for some reason, but it doesn't feel cheap at all when you hold it. I was really sceptic about the applicator and if you can do sharp lines with it, but you can! So you won't be needing a different lip brush for lining.

But if I have to give critique about something, it's the size of the cap you hold on to when applying. I wish it would be a bit bigger so it would fit better in my hand when applying the lipstick. But that's the only thing, hehe.

So! The package says you should allow about 60 seconds for it to dry and after that, it has become completely matte and cool. I filmed at little clip showing how well it stays on after it's dried:


Remember to activate the subtitles/CC if you need them!

Amazing right? I've actually been trying to eat different things while wearing this, so I could see how well it stays on :DD What I usually find the hardest ones to eat while wearing a lipstick, are salads and with oily dressings and other greasy food, because my lipstick always likes to run outside the lines.

This one on the other hand doesn't do that! The only thing I noticed is that when eating, it might start crumbling a bit from the inner parts, but that's super easy to fix when you're done eating.

Other good points are that it feels like there's almost nothing on your lips when you wear it, and if it's windy outside, your hair won't get stuck on your lips because it's matte.

The removal is a bit harder than with a regular lipstick, because you can't just grab a piece of toilet paper and rub it off. You have to use makeup remover to get it off, but even my non-waterproof remover works fine.


I also wanted to include a little lip lining tutorial to this post about how to make your lips look bigger and fuller, because I've gotten questions if I took lip fillers recently (the answer is no, I haven't :D) and requests for tips. So, here we go!


1. Start with bare lips! As you can see, my upper lip is quite small and I'm okay with that, but it looks a bit silly with lipstick if I don't over-draw the lines a bit.

For a matte lipstick like this one, it's recommended to scrub and moisturize your lips well before using it. So go do some scrubbing and put on lip balm when you start doing your makeup, BUT remember to wipe it off when you get to the part when you do your lips. Otherwise the lipstick might not stay on so well.


2. This step is optional. If you feel like you need some help figuring out where the lines should be, start lining your natural lip line first. Then start rising it slowly till you're satisfied with the size/shape of your upper lip.

I didn't have the exact same color of liner as the lipstick is, but it doesn't matter because the coverage is amazing as it will be opaque in one coat and will hide this liner completely.


3. Go over your lips and the lines with the lipstick. Let dry and you're ready to go!


I might've gotten a bit too excited about this lipstick, because I made an order to Lime Crime few days ago and bought 5 new lipsticks.... (3 of them are liquid ones like this and 2 are regular) I hope I will get them soon! If you wanna see the colors I ordered, go see my Facebook page, I posted a pic there.

Anyway, I hope you found this post helpful! See ya!

  2. OMG! Arvaapa joutuuko tilaamaan? Rakastan huulipunia mutta kaikki huulipunat tarraa suoraan hampaisiin jos edes yritän puhua, saati sitten hymyillä. Mun huulet on niin sairaan ohuet! Tätä on pakko kokeilla vielä viimeisenä keinona :). Ihan ylikauniita kuvia taas (onko nää otettu uudella kameralla?). Upeat meikit ja nuo hiukset. Mulla ei mahdu aivoon miten sast ne pysymään tasavärisenä. Mun hiusten väri vaihtuu joka pesussa :).

    1. hahaa, arvaan että joutuu! :D mutta ei huono idea, koska veikkaan että tää ei tartu hyvän pysyvyytensä takia hampaisiinkaan (itsellä tosin ei sitä ongelmaa ole normipunienkaan kanssa).

      joo nää on sillä uudella otettu! ihan huippu laatu näissäkin kuvissa, ei oo tullut ikävä mun isoa canonin rouskua :D

      tää onkin varmaan ainoo "shokkiväri" jota jaksan ylläpitää kun se ei mene pesussa miksikään... ainoo taistelu on tyven värjäyksen kanssa ja oon hyväksynyt kohtaloni... :D

      kiitos taas paljon<3

  4. Kiitos paljon tutoriaalista! Tekisi hirveästi mieli itsekin satsata vähän rajumman värisiin meikkeihin, ehkä tästä inspiroituneena voisi vihdoinkin käydä ostamassa jonkun upean tumman punan. :D

  8. Miten yleensä saat meikit pysymään hyvinä läpi päivän ? Ehkä tää on vaan joku mun oma ongelma, mutta tuntuu aina, että päivän päätteks ripsarit iha tuhrussa silmien alla ja näyttää jollekki lokaalille mafioosalle ... ja käytän arkena meikkiä vaan vähän ripsissä enkä muute oikeen mitään, joten en ees uskalla aatella mitä tapahtuis jos alkais kunnolla käyttämään.

    1. hmmm, hankala sanoa, ehkä oon vaan onnistunu löytämään sellaset tuotteet jotka sopii mun iholle/naamaan? koska en oikeestaan käytä edes mitään pohjustustuotteita yms jotka antais paremman pysyvyyden.
      mut tosta ripsarista tuli mieleen et oon huomannu et ainaki itellä pysyy ripsari leviämättä naamalle jos levitän luomillekin jotain meikkiä. muuten rasvottuvat luomet suttaa ripsarin aina.

  10. Nice! Great tutorial. That product seems high quality. I do my lips the same way, I have so thin upper lip that you can barely see it so if I would put lipstick only on my real lips, it would look like I have lipstick only on my lower lip LOL. Goddamn white girl genetics, amirite.

    I imagine that you like that curve in the middle of the upper lip to be strong and pointy, but have you tried to make it softer? It would be cool to see how that look would work on you. Althought I agree that the pointy line really suits your style :)

    Ps. Your eyebrows are on point!

    1. hahah same here, so i totally know how you feel! :D
      i do like it strong and pointy indeed, but i actually haven't even tried it any other way :D maybe i could do that, just to see how it looks like haha.

      thank you so much!<3

  12. Nice review! I loved it, and you made me wanna buy it so much :333
    No, btw, srsly :D I just bought a matte liquid lipstick from LimeCrime and I'm in love with everything liquid AND matte ♥
    Thanks for the tutorial, I was sooo needing one! My upper lip is small and funny when it has a lipstick applied so I always thought of redrawing it :/

    Love your latest blogposts! (eventho you say you're not gyaru, it doesn't matter!)

    1. thanks!! i'm happy to hear you liked the post :D and it's a great product so i really recommend it! that's good to know! i can't wait to recieve my lime crime order!!
      seems like there's many people with similar problems to mine, with their upper lip :D but luckily that's easy to fix with makeup ^^

      glad you think so :) i mean, my makeup is obviously still very strongly inspired by gyaru (and i think neo gal fashion is kinda cool) but i wish not to categorize myself :)
