Lisa Eldridge Velvet Ribbon Plush True Velvet Lipstick Colour Review & Swatches

 

Velvet Ribbon

Lisa Eldridge Velvet Ribbon Plush True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium red with cooler, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage that needed a bit more product to get to full coverage (my lip freckle peeks through ever-so-slightly). The texture was smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide across my lips without tugging but never felt slippery on my lips. If you’ve tried a silicone-based face primer, it has a similar glide (the first ingredient in the lipstick formula is dimethicone!). The color sat well on my lips without emphasizing lip texture or lip lines. It wore well for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. – $266.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a “creamy, hydrating matte with a slight sheen” that is “long wearing and non drying.” The three shades launched to-date are very pigmented with a lightly creamy, velvety texture that is thicker (but not heavy!) compared to the Insanely Saturated formula but has a similar velvety quality–smooth, glides on but doesn’t feel wet or slippery at all.

The colors went on evenly and smoothly and were more flattering on (less prone to emphasizing lip texture or lip lines) than the average matte lipstick. They wear was between five and seven hours well, and they felt neither drying nor hydrating over time. There is no scent or taste to the formula.
