I absolutely love the rouge edition velvets so was excited to try this. If you have tried the Nyx butter glosses it is exactly like that. Creamy and smooth in texture, completely non stick and a nice coating of colour, not completely opaque but not completely sheer either, a nice in between. The formula feels nicely hydrating and it doesn’t stick to any dry patches that I may have. It isn’t overly glossy, it just adds a nice sheen, again much like the Nyx butter glosses.
The packaging is pretty with it’s mirror effect top in the corresponding colour to the product. I also like that the packaging is clear so you can actually see the colour of the gloss properly, this is helpful when picking out a shade and for storage.
I really am very impressed, so much so I definitely want more but seven more beautiful colours in the range it is going to be hard to decide. Rosé on the rocks is a beautiful, we all know what’s coming, your lips but better shade. It is almost identical to my natural lips but more pink so adds a nice girly touch to my make-up look and it means I can pretty much wear it with any eye look.
Wear time isn’t amazing, without food I would say 2 – 3 hours, with food not a chance but it is a no fuss application, you don’t need a lip liner with this shade and it doesn’t fade weirdly so it really is no bother when it fades and you can’t be bothered to re apply, it won’t look dodgy is what I’m tryna say!
I can’t wait to add to my collection. This the perfect light weight non sticky formula with a nice sheen for spring/summer and the colour selection is on point too with pretty pinks, a coral and a red. Will you be giving these a try? – Amy x
