This is such a beautiful colour. It’s a purple hue but very wearable. It’s comfortable on the lips too. Very glossy and wear more like a balm. But it’s not a soft crayon. I just love this. It’s one of the better crayon in the market. Even though I feel most lip crayon will not fail you. It’s just the colour selection that make or break the product. Plum Russian is two thumbs up!
So I read a lot of review on these Rouge Edition Velvet and all of them said that the shade 08 Grand Cru is the only one that has a weird consistency. I guess the gooey texture is what they mentioned as the weird consistency as compared to the rest of the range. It doesn’t apply smooth and I feel that I need to use lip liner to keep the color inside the lip. You can try to apply it very carefully and it will take time.
It is a beautiful dark berry or burgundy color. Perfect for fall, or perfect for dinner at least in Singapore. But I feel you can get away using this for lunch too, as long not being pair with smokey eyes. It is quite a long lasting lip color. It doesn’t transfer onto the cups, I like that. It is not sweat proof though as it will start to disappear. Even so, it will eventually start to fade after a hour half.
It is quite comfortable on the lips, not over drying. It has a matte finish and I sure would love to try the other shades and compare the texture. As in the end, the only thing I don’t like about this is the texture.
This is a blue mascara. I’ve been looking for some colored mascara for a while. I used to love ZA blue mascara. It has the perfect hint of blue, but it wasn’t a baby blue, pastel color, it’s a navy blue actually. I just cannot find it anymore. So when I see this and it’s on sale (of course, I buy everything on sale), I just had to get it.
