I've had these beauties since they first came out - I'm Royalty back at the beginning of the year, and 714 a few months on. I have worn these to death, and I am constantly reaching for I'm Royalty, as I've never seen a purple shade like it! These lipsticks are the children of the fashion and beauty icon, Jeffree Star. I'd followed some of his music as a teen, so it was really cool to see him making a name for himself in the beauty world. The packaging is really girly, but still keeping classy. I've dropped these many times and never had problem with chipping or spilling - so a good lipstick to throw in the bag!
I'm Royalty is one of my most worn shades. If you follow me on Instagram, you will see that most of the time I am rocking this gorgeous shade of purple. I am a huge wearing of purples, so to find one that I adore completely is saying something. This takes a few times to get the hang of how to apply. Since it dries so quickly and because of the insane pigmentation, it can be tricky. I recommend using a brush to start with, but for the sake of the product and these pictures I applied it using the wand. These go on liquid, and within 15 seconds dry into a matte finish. This product stays on all day, with no need for touch ups.
I love 714, and it's a perfect balance between a neon and a pastel coral. It's the perfect holiday colour, and this will see me right through the summer. As much as I love this shade, it can be a bit of a nightmare. Because it's not as dark as I'm Royalty, this has a tenancy to streak on me - but only slightly. The problem is avoided with careful application, but it can be a bit of a hassle when in a rush. It has the exact finish and staying power as I'm Royalty, the only difference is the colour!
Being an American brand there's few places to grab these from. I recommend Cocktail Cosmetics, as that's where I bought mine and they're always restocking new colours. I have my eye on Weirdo and Anna Nicole next! I really recommend these lippies if you're on the hunt for more unusual colours that really do live beyond the price tag. For £13, you get a well pigmented colour that stays on your lips all day without fault - What's not to love?
