It’s Saturday! Hooray and stuff! I know that I usually have more elaborate Swatch Saturdays planned, but today I want to do a quick post. Have no fear, I have a few really awesome reviews on new products coming up! I did a bit of shopping. Okay, a lot of shopping, but with all these new releases happening all at once, can you blame me?
Something that I picked up virtually in the midst of my pajama friendly shopping spree I ended up picking up “Posh Spice” by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I only picked that one up because I ordered quite a few colorful things from Colourpop. I originally wasn’t going to order it, but the free shipping deal sucked me in, and I saw several swatches on Instgram that made my heart flutter. Instagram made me do it.
This shade is described as a “greige taupe” and I feel that’s a very proper description.
I will link my previous review of this brand at the end of this post, but can we talk about how gorgeous this shade is? It’s a darker nude that I feel will suite many skin tones. As always, I swatch in natural light and I have very fair skin with cool undertones for reference.
Just as a quick overview though, the Velour Liquid Lipsticks are very pigmented and apply smoothly. They also don’t dry down fully and stay about 5% tacky so that they wear comfortably and won’t crumble. They are transfer proof, and kiss proof. They are not make out proof though, just a heads up.
The applicator on these are my favorites as well. They are very “brush” like, which makes applying so much easier, in my opinion. I typically don’t have to go back in with a small lip brush to perfect anything, unless we’re getting up close and personal like we are today.
These are $18 a piece, which is higher end, but I honestly feel these are worth it. There’s a lot of product in these, and this formula is probably my all time favorite. I wear “Unicorn Blood” constantly.
I will definitely be sporting this shade as the weather cools down. Have you picked up any amazing and unique lipstick shades lately? Tell me about it!
I hope you all enjoyed this quick swatch post! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days!
