Lisa Eldridge Velvet Carnival is a moderately cool-toned, dark fuchsia with a semi-matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $32.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Lisa Eldridge Velvet Carnival True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an incredibly vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage--it seemed to have a bit more translucency compared to other shades in the range--with a slightly thinner consistency that didn't seem as flattering applied as I would have expected.
The texture itself still felt very lightweight and more velvety with that light glide rather than traditional creaminess. The color was still going strong after seven hours of wear, left a stain behind, and was 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.
