It's no secret how much I love the Zoeva brushes and I really do like quite a few of their makeup products as well. When I first saw these were launching, I was really wanting to give them a try as I was yet to find a liquid lipstick formula that I like but these have to be one of the best formulas on the beauty market at the moment.
Swatched: Faint of Heart, Pale Plethora, All is Calm, Natural Aesthetic, Clear Message, Matte Chat, The Outsider & Blue Blood.
These are the brand new Pure Velours Liquid Lipsticks which are available in eight different shades all with a matte finish. These can be purchased from the Beauty Bay website individually or in a box if you do want all of the shades. This box set includes very shade from the line with a great mixture of nudes and slightly darker shades perfect for the Autumn/Winter. I really like the applicator on these lip products as it is a tapered doe food wand which allows you do get precise application each and every time. The eight shades are:
- Faint of Heart: Nude Mauve
- Pale Plethora: Soft Pink Nude
- All is Calm: Dark Rosy Brown
- Natural Aesthetic: Peach Toned Nude
- Clear Message: Blushed Nude
- Matte Chat: Brownish Red
- The Outsider: Red with Brown Undertones
- Blue Blood: True Red
I have to hand it to Zoeva, they have got the formula of these spot on and I am a huge fan! These have a non-drying formula, with Vitamin E to moisturise and condition the lips, and do slightly set on the lips without drying them out, however they aren't transfer proof. The applicator picks up the perfect amount of product to make application that little bit easier and these glide onto the lips with minimal effort. These matte liquid lipsticks have the best light weight formula, I have ever tried and you can hardly even feel them on the lips and it stays like this for the duration of the wear. These are very long lasting on the lips and I haven't found any of the shades to bleed outside the lip line even without lip liner but the darker shades do need a little touch up after eating.
For someone who hates matte lip products, I really love these. My favourite shades for everyday are Natural Aesthic and Faint of Heart. But I was really surprised how much I loved the look of The Outsider as it is such a dark shade and so different than anything I would usually go for. But, I loved how it looked with my skin tone, almost Casper the Friendly Ghost, and it wasn't streaky at all on application. These are definitely worth checking out if you love a matte liquid lip.
