Just in time for the holidays, the Lisa Eldridge The New Velvets Collection has launched and includes six new shades in the Velvet formula, though half of them are sold out last I checked!

I only trust your reviews Christine!
I succumbed the last time to the fear of missing out and I bought “love of my life” after watching some influencers on YouTube.
Your swatches came a week or so later and they were much more true-to-the color and I remember thinking that if I had seen them, I would have saved my money. Also, having makeup products that I do not use always feels like a burden to me.

I promised myself this time around that I would not give into the hype and FOMO and I wouldn’t buy anything until you upload your swatches. I congratulate myself for my instincts. None of these lippies work for me, from what I see from this post.

Thank you for all the wonderful, objective and scientific work that you do.

I received Velvet Beauty on Tuesday and have been wearing it every day! It’s such a lovely finish. A bit darker than it seemed from the (possibly overexposed?) studio pictures, but I actually prefer it to the color I thought I was getting. I would definitely like to get another in the future.

I have bought a set of three and I really like the colours of these, vibrant and nicely pigmented! Muse is especially flattering, Beauty is more common and warmer than I thought, Fawn will probably be too light on a number of people unless you use it with a darker lip liner (the kind of look I personally never go for). My only complaint is the lasting power of these, I have to reapply after 3 hours even whithout eating or drinking, was expecting a bit more since these are mattes…

I made my first purchase of a Lisa Eldridge lipstick this time and I picked Velvet Myth. I am so glad I did! Your swatch is pretty close to what I see, but Myth is also a bit of a chameleon and looks redder at times. I love it so much. I put it on last night and the beautiful stain it left lasted through dessert, a bunch of water, washing my face, brushing my teeth, and was still faintly there when I woke up this morning. Also, I hate matte lip products, but this formula is so comfortable and not-quite matte. I really cannot day enough about how much I love this lipstick.

I can’t wait for your dupes as I went for Myth, Beauty and Midnight as they are usually not my picks but I didn’t wand to go for Fawn and Muse as I think I already have a lot of lipsticks, that are similar in colour, even though these are such a stunning formula.

So, I picked up Velvet Decade for my daughter. It is a “her” shade if ever there was one. For myself, I picked up Skyscraper Rose since I didn’t buy it last time. They arrived two days ago and I have worn my shade and really love it. It is a very comfortable matte to wear and is definitely a “me” shade.

I can’t wait to see your dupes for Velvet Beauty because I really, really wanted that one, but it sold out too fast! I DO have Velvet Myth and wow, it’s really gorgeous. I have 3 Lisa Eldridge lipsticks (Jazz, Ribbon, and Myth) and I really enjoy them!

I purchased all shades except Decade after watching Lisa’s video. I’m out of town and won’t see them until Monday. I enjoy Lisa’s matte formula and invested the lipsticks as a Christmas present to myself. Your swatches look close to what I expected except for Decade, which was good to see the red undertone that’s not visible when worn on the lips. I passed on Decade after buying Natasha Denona’s Naya lipstick, a milk chocolate shade that lacks any red tone and looks horrible on my lips. I trust Lisa’s would be better but I also didn’t like the contrast of the lip shade with the inside of the mouth in her video, so passed on that shade.

Hi Tracey
I too bought Naya, think it looks wretched on my lips and I ordered Velvet Decade to replace it. It’s scheduled to arrive on Monday. I returned the Denona this afternoon.

I splurged for my birthday and bought all of them. I do love her eye for color and these are amazing but sometimes a little too matte for me which makes me sad but I can always put gloss over to help if needed. Remind me of the Pat McGrath formula but maybe a little less drying.

I have all of these. I have a no-buy rule and broke it for these. Her formula is exceptional and at least for me – it lasts a good while without the need to reapply (leaves a stain at the end of the day)
