Lisa Eldridge’s New Velvet Lipsticks debut.
Celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge is building on the success of her Velvet Lipsticks with a new collection of the buzz-worthy formula in deep, warm winter-friendly hues. The UK artist’s lipsticks are in such demand that they literally sell out in minutes when they arrive on lisaeldridge.com She’s a beauty sensation.
So why all the fuss? It’s the formula. Eldridge has been creative director for Lancome makeup and has spent countless hours working with the brand’s top scientists to get the texture, pigment and wear she desires. Having working with dozens of celebrities and pop stars over the years, she knows what makes a good lipstick great. All of that experience and expertise has gone into her own collection.
The lipsticks themselves are highly saturated and pigmented with a beautiful true velvet effect on the surface of the bullet. It looks like the lipstick is wrapped in velvet fabric. The formulation is a creamy, hydrating matte with a slight sheen – it’s not a flat matte. The colour is long-wearing and hydrating.
This month sees six new shades that are ideal of holiday and winter wear.
The deepest of the shades, this dramatic blackberry shade lends itself perfectly to its velvet colour.
A wildly vivid mulberry shade inspired by a vintage silk kimono Lisa bought on her first visit to Japan.
A beautifully vibrant light pink berry shade, this lipstick hue was inspired by pre-Raphaelite paintings.
Inspired by classic 90s shades in Lisa’s vintage makeup collection, this warm neutral is modernized with skin-lifting, lively undertones to make it ultra-flattering.
This is the ultimate sensual, smoky rosewood nude shade. It’s a good wearable mix of brown and dirty rose pink undertones – flattering to a wide range of skin tones.
Inspired by early photography and hand-tinted portraits, this shade is a chic, rich deep cocoa brown with both warm and cool undertones. It looks wonderfully dramatic on fair-to-medium skin tones and the most perfect nude for deep and rich skin tones.
For travel or gift-giving, Lisa offers lipstick trios with a velvet cosmetics bag complete with her brand logo.
