Lisa Eldridge needs no introduction, she is one of the best makeup artists that I adore so much. From sharing her knowledge, expertise, and love for makeup through her youtube channel, she has numerous clients all over the world. And same with her new makeup launches – the lip products are just superb- they are launched and they sold out – this has been ongoing since the launch. I am excited to try the newest lip kit from the diva, called Fantasy Floral Lip Kit in Velvet Ribbon.
The Fantasy Floral Lip Kits are available in five versions with different textures, finishes, and looks. The 5 kits have all the lip products for that specific shade namely lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss. Each Lip Kit contains a ‘True Velvet Lipstick', a ‘Gloss Embrace' Lip Gloss, and an ‘Enhance and Define' Lip Pencil. All the three products come in a very beautiful Luxury Velvet Makeup Bag designed in collaboration with the multimedia artist, Jon Jacobsen. The one I am reviewing in this post is the Velvet Ribbon Kit with Velvet Ribbon Lipstick, Glass Embrace Lip Gloss, and Enhance & Define Beauty Liner.
True Velvet Lipstick is a highly pigmented matte lipstick with a creamy texture and slight sheen, not a flat matte. The formula is lightweight, silky, and comfortable on the lips. It is non-drying and long-wearing. The bullet of the lipstick has the appearance of beautifully plush velvet fabric. Velvet Ribbon – True Velvet Lip Color is a vibrant, classic neutral/blue red. As per Lisa, this is the one classic pillar box red that every woman needs. “I named it Velvet Ribbon, because when I think of this shade I always think of a velvet bow.” This is truly the classic face brightening red that suits everyone. Good thing is that this blue red makes the teeth look whiter.
Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss is a smooth, non-sticky nourishing lip gloss with medium pigment coverage. I am really enjoying this lip gloss for my dry lips, it is very nourishing, lips feel soft and smooth – not just while this gloss is on but also after it has worn off. It is a true multitasker with lip care benefits in lip colour. Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss in Ribbon is a bold, universal red with a hint of blue. The medium pigment coverage looks great on its own or over the Velvet Ribbon True Velvet Lipstick. Now that I am working from home, I have been applying this gloss before sitting in front of my laptop – it just perks up my mood. It is a beautiful red lip gloss which is more of red glossy lip care.
The Enhance and Define ‘Beauty' Liner in Ribbon is neutral in tone compared to the lipstick and a little deeper in intensity to add definition. The lip pencil has a gel formula that is very smooth and glides without effort, even on my dry lips. They are long wear and stay on like no other I have tried. once set, they do not smudge.
Overall, I am truly impressed by the shades and the formula of all three lip products in this kit. I can't wait to try more from Lisa Eldridge – everything from the packaging, formula, and performance is superb. Lisa Eldridge Beauty is available here.*Press samples
