But the star of the show is actually this (LE) Truly Outrageous liquid lip set, and I am so glad I bought it the day it went live on the Canadian site.
The packaging is glam, with the signature JEM lightning bolt and hot pink glittery box, a little young for my taste but I am not complaining. The tubes are of decent quality but are quite small. Excuse my greediness wishing they were bigger, as they are that good!
The 5 liquid lipsticks in the set, from L-R: Fashion and Fame, Like a Dream, Music is Magic, To the Rescue and She's Got the Power.
The 3 in the middle are great on their own with completely full coverage, I could not have enough! Like a Dream is described as a mauve (supposed to be a dupe of Sephora Marvelous Mauve), Music is Magic a bright pink (dupe of KvD Backstage Bambi) and To the Rescue a berry, great for any time of year.
Fashion and Fame, with that gorgeous milky pink holographic look, is meant to be layered over the others in the set or other lipsticks/ liners. The effect is visible, fun to play around with.
She's Got the Power is a sheer blue-tinted purple, takes a few swipes for opacity. Not for daily wear, but I can pull it off with a pink or red lip liner underneath (you know my jam by now lol).
The 4 coloured liquid lipsticks feel so nice and light on, dry quickly to a matte finish (left: freshly applied, right: after a minute). They are not completely transfer resistant (leave some colour on a mug or finger) and need light touchup after a meal but I don't mind that.
For the size (0.083oz/ 2.38ml each) being more than half of a Lustre Matte (0.14oz/ reg. $20), the set is quite reasonably priced at $31. Definitely recommend it!
