My first experiences with these new lip velours were good but having now swatched the entire range I can tell you there are definitely good and bad shades. That’s not unusual in any line (budget or otherwise) but there are some serious standouts you NEED and some I’d very much recommend you skip.. although you can probably guess which from the pictures. The texture is, as you’d expect very velvety however I was expecting more of a matte cream (apparently they do those too and I missed them) and they really don’t set. They’re kind of matte in finish but they don’t really ‘dry’ do they’re really comfortable to wear. That being said they don’t last as long as I’d hoped because of this.. still better than a regular creamy lipstick but worth mentioning as they have a long wear claim.

I’m really not keen on the names Makeup Rev come up with.. who thinks of them? Way too long to remember for the most part and often just weird. I don’t know about you but I’d rather my lipstick not be called ‘what will it take to make me love you’ – mmm. Anyway.. that aside, packaging is basic but sleek, the product is heavily scented with a sweet vanilla we’ve come to recognise with these kind of lip creams and the secondary rose gold packaging – very swish indeed. My stand outs woudll be All I Think About Is You, Can’t We Just Make Love Instead and Don’t Bring Me Down. The deeper colours have better pay off, some of the very pale ones look plain awful, really sheer and streaky but the ones worth having are REALLY worth having for the tiny £3 price tag!
