Velvet Midnight

Lisa Eldridge Velvet Midnight True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep burgundy with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single, fluid stroke, though it seemed to struggle to adhere as strongly to the inner area of my lip compared to the rest of my lips.

The texture was smooth, very lightweight (to the point where I forgot I had it on), but it lacked the traditional slip of a creamier lipstick; instead, it was more velvety and silicone-like as it glided across my lips. It wore well for eight hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "creamy, hydrating matte with a slight sheen" that is "long wearing and non drying." The three shades launched to-date are very pigmented with a lightly creamy, velvety texture that is thicker (but not heavy!) compared to the Insanely Saturated formula but has a similar velvety quality--smooth, glides on but doesn't feel wet or slippery at all.

The colors went on evenly and smoothly and were more flattering on (less prone to emphasizing lip texture or lip lines) than the average matte lipstick. They wear was between five and seven hours well, and they felt neither drying nor hydrating over time. There is no scent or taste to the formula.

Velvet Myth

Lisa Eldridge Velvet Myth True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly on my lips. The texture was dense but velvety, so it glided easily across my lips without tugging but didn’t feel slippery or even “wet” as it went on. It stayed on nicely for seven hours and was non-drying while worn.

As much as I’ve fallen in love with Velvet Midnight, I’ve got to stop myself. I have more rich, vampy lipsticks than I’m likely to ever use up. It actually makes me feel a little sad that this one is so perfect for me, because there’s Nars Siouxsie, MAC Media, More Than A Woman, Deep Love, UD Disturbed, etc. Oh, and PMG Deep Orchid on its way, too.

Oh, forgive me, but that quality just looks POOR. your beautiful smile definitely helps them, Christine, but from what I see.. I cannot justify the price point. I always seem to be the odd one out here, but I’m always that way! You can rock anything tho, girl.

Both shades look beautiful on you, Christine. The level of pigmentation is astounding. It’s good to see Velvet Midnight leaning more burgandy than purple. I purchased both but have not had a chance to try them on.
