8 Alternatives For Jeffree Star's Gemini Lipstick

by Jessica Willingham

I love a warm, spicy lip for summertime. First there was Kylie Cosmetic's 22, and now Jeffree Star has new orange-tinged shades in his Velour Liquid Lipstick Line. But like all the best lipsticks, it's sold out. Before you start to sob, consider shopping these eight alternatives for Jeffree Star Cosmetic's Gemini lipstick until he restocks his goods.

ICYMI, Jeffree Star created Gemini, a warm, terra-cotta nude shade, for his Velour Liquid Lipstick line. These liquid lipsticks are arguably the best formulation out there, and they've received rave reviews from all the YouTube beauty vloggers like Manny MUA, Nikki Tutorials, and Jaclyn Hill. Gemini retails for $18, but as soon as it was released, it sold out online at Luckily, there are plenty of alternative shades still up for grabs.

Gemini is a great color for summer because it's warm, neutral on almost all skin tones, and wearable enough for everyday. Not to mention, this formula lasts through summer smoothies and romances alike. There's a nasty rumor going around that matte formulations aren't summer-worthy, but if you shop a comfortable formulation, like this one, you can wear it in any season.

If you're sad you missed out on Gemini this time around, here are a few of my favorite warm, orange-brown alternatives you can wear all summer long.
