Lisa Eldridge Velvet Affair & Velvet Carnival Velvet Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Velvet Affair

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.

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 Carnival

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.
