A recent beauty steal I came across is the Velvet Finish Lip Gloss by Forever 21. It comes in four colors (natural, rose, red and fuchsia).
I love a matte lip, one of the main reasons being that I feel like it last longer than a glossy or creamy lip. I don’t like feeling that I need to constantly need to reapply my lipstick/lipgloss. Another thing I like about the matte finish is that they tend to be very pigmented so leave a tint on your lips after it has worn off by the end of the day, which is something that I really like.I am not a fan of overly glossy and sticky lips ,which is why I really like this product it goes on smooth and dries to a matte finish. For those of you who like a glossy lip this product may not be for you.
Since some people might find this product to be drying I suggest you apply vaseline or any lip balm of your choice before apply the velvet gloss. Other brands have similar lip products that dry to a matte finish such as Sephora Brand, Lime Crime and NYX. I will do a post on my favorite cream stains, lip stains & matte glosses soon
The best part about this product is that it only cost $3.80! Which is perfect for those of you who aren’t sure if you would like a matte finish, you can try this product with out breaking the bank.
How the colors look on the site aren’t exactly how they look in person so below are swatches and what the colors look like on me:
I love the natural, rose and fuchsia those are my favorite out of the four. The red is nice too but I prefer a deeper red. I hope they come out with more colors I would definitely get them.
