Lisa Eldridge Velvet Affair True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging (though it needed a touch more pressure than a more emollient formula would).
I'd recommend exfoliating prior to applying, as I find it can emphasize larger flakes a bit, though minor imperfections are not. There was a smidgen of product that settled into my deeper lip lines over the five hours the color lasted for and felt non-drying.

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.
