Editor's Review

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.

Claims / Ingredients

Paint your lips as an artist would with these highly pigmented True Velvet Lipsticks. Described as 'A phenomenon... a work of art’. Each bullet has the appearance of beautifully plush velvet fabric, a ‘trompe l’oeil’ that has to be seen to be believed. This is matte lipstick revolutionised with a saturated technicolour formulation and a creamy texture with a slight sheen that’s 3-D and luscious, not a flat matte. So intensely pigmented, it’s easy to create either a one-swipe graphic lip statement or pat gently for the ultimate subtle lip stain. Cutting edge lab tech has enabled the creation of a very long-wearing, non drying crème which feels lightweight, silky and comfortable to wear.

This came across as a beige-y peachy nude and I really liked the finish. I would say the color is easily duped but the formula is not! This isn't the most unique color, per se, but it's a very universal and everyday color which is what I was going for. I noticed that I have amassed a huge collection of lipsticks, many of them very bright and bold, but not always wearable. I barely wear them and I always reach off peachy nudes instead. This is why I wanted to try Lisa Eldridge's lipstick because they seem like very wearable and flattering colors. This was matte without looking drying which made my lips looks fuller. I think it's a great everyday lipstick and I think she does nudes well!

This is the most unique red lipstick I own. It's a perfect blend of cool and warm tones, the lasting power is great. I love the finish and it doesn't bleed. It makes my teeth look very white despite not being a really blue based-red. It's not very bright, but it's very saturated, it's a muted color but still very bold. It's very opaque and consistent. I can't wait to wear this more. I have fair skin with neutral undertones, brown hair and eyes for reference. No scent too!

Picture on Lisa's website is inaccurate. Temptalia has a more accurate picture of the color Velvet Petal. This color is nothing special. The texture of the lipstick is nearly identical to Pat McGrath Mattetrance--I wouldn't be surprised if it is from the same manufacturer. However, Lisa's version comes in cheap looking packaging compared to McGrath. If you like McGrath's mattetrance lipstick formula you will like Lisa's Velvet. As for me, I do not like this formula--it applies streaky and feels a bit gritty on the lips. Also, wear time is nothing remarkable. I prefer a Mac Amplified, Bobbi Brown Luxe and even Colourpop's glowing and blotted lipsticks to this type of formula.

Nearly perfect! I got this as a late Christmas gift. And I treasure it. I love the feel of the bullet; very luxurious. I got the Velvet Ribbon shade, I love that it's pretty neutral and looks good on everyone. I love the texture, which I usually wear regular moisturizing lipsticks and lately, lip glosses, so this was my first try at a matte lipstick, and I think I may be spoiled now. The thing is, because I love it so much, I keep it in my purse. And, one day, I opened it up and it had wriggled all the way to the top, smashing onto the cap and actually breaking. I still wear it though, using a brush. I thought this was a one time thing, but I, continuously, find it all the way to the top of the cap. It's pretty frustrating, because I KNOW I put it down the last time I used it. Sigh. Nothing's ever perfect.

I adore the color of this lipstick. Lisa has an exquisitely nuanced sense of color, and understands formulation, luxury experience, and can evocatively convey vision. Once this is on, it doesn’t budge and it fades very evenly, despite eating and drinking. While this remains one of my all time favorite lipsticks, I do find it drying and difficult to apply on its own. I done that I need to diligently prep my lips abs apply it on top of a lip balm to make it work. I much prefer the luxuriously lucent formula. That said, it’s the only matte lipstick that I can make work, and the color and experience are out of this world.

This is one of my favorite formula. It's super smooth and "sillicony" . The effect on the lips really look like velvet, similar to a liquid lipstick without the super drying aesthetic that the liquid lipstick give. It's super long wearing too and super matte so it's a little bit drying after a few hours. It's still more comfortable than most of liquids.

There's no lipstick bullet more beautiful than Lisa Eldridge's velvet lipsticks. I normally don't view my makeup as a collection (more things I use! than collect), but these lipsticks are stunning and def worth a spot as a collector's item (that is still used!) In her overview of this range, AmyLovesMakeup compared Beauty to Mac Mehr which is a forever favorite of mine. LE Velvet Beauty is a bit deeper; against my very light skin this shade reads as a medium (like on a scale of 1-10, light to dark, it would be a 6 or 7 for me) pink. It applies beautifully, a true matte without a heavy or dry feel. On my lips, which are a bit dry/sometimes chapped, the formula is slightly drying but not remarkably so especially compared to other matte lipsticks on the market.

This lipstick is so absurdly beautiful. I have cool “summer” coloring and this lipstick may as well have been made for me. Beyond the color, though, the lipstick is extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear, even when worn “full coverage.” I typically wear it as a light stain, but when built up all the way you can barely feel it on the lips. I have extremely dry lips which pretty much require constant chapstick, especially in winter, but this does not dry out my lips. I also have the tendency to chew on my lips and it lasts through that too. One-swipe opacity, and it lasts forever. Equally beautiful tapped onto your cheeks as a blush!

This formula is unparalleled. It fades gracefully, you can use it on lips and cheeks, it feels hydrating, it’s gorgeous.
