If you have read my blog for any amount of time you will know that I love high end and drugstore cosmetics equally. If it is a quality product then I want and need it in my life. Sometimes I am skeptical when a new brand comes along because there are usually NO reviews on it, no knowledge of the quality and so on and so forth. That was true for me with Velvet 59 but I am extremely happy to say that everything I have tried so far has been of the best quality and actually surpasses many known brands that I have in my arsenal. I wanted to touch on a few items from the brand and show you what Velvet 59 is all about.
The Exotic Lotus Palette
Eyeshadows are my absolute favorite makeup item so I am going to start with The Exotic Lotus Palette.
She is the Queen of beauty, the most exquisite flower of the river; the exotic smoked lotus. Let these ultra-pigmented colors transport you to a far away land where the lotus blooms in vast misty waters under a silver moon. These shadows have a velvety feel for maximum blending. Create a cut crease, smoky or a natural look with these vegan, paraben, gluten and cruelty free shadows.
The shadows are mostly made up of warm shades, The pigmentation is undeniable. The metallics are super gorgeous and the mattes are perfect. The black in this palette has silver glitters running through it and actually resembles a night sky. Each eyeshadow pan is fairly large and I don’t forsee you running out of any shade, at least I know I wont. I think that this palette is perfect for people that wear neutrals and it is perfect for daytime and nighttime looks.
Contour is a Girls Best Friend
One thing that is certainly hot these days is a contour palette. It is all the rage and it really seems like it is really mainstream. Even makeup beginners are venturing into the contour and highlight life.
No matter your face shape wether it’s square, round or heart shaped contour is a girls best friend! From Marilyn to Kim this hollywood tradition will make you picture-perfect for every occasion. This cream to powder kit makes it ultra easy to blend your contour and highlight. It sets as a matte powder so your contour will stay all day!
These are actually cream highlighters and they are extra pigmented. I don’t think I have ever come across a cream kit, even stage makeup, that has creams formulated with this much pigment. The swatches below are just one swipe in the pan. Obviously one person may not have the need for all 6 shades but as the seasons change and our skins change colors having a variety is definitely convenient. These are really perfect.
Matte to the Max Liquid Lipstick
Liquid Lipsticks have been around for a few years now but just recently the matte liquid lipsticks have been super popular, and with good reason. They go on weightless and stay put.
Want a classic Hollywood pout? This liquid to matte vegan lip color promises starlet glamour and so much more!
Matte to the Max is infused with Sacha Inchi oil from the Amazonian rainforest to lock in hydration and a rich source of vitamin E to help keep your lips moist yet matte all day!
Directions: Swipe once to deliver a liquid opaque color that softens into a rich matte long-wear lipstick.
For a diamond, glossy effect, follow with your favorite shade of Velvet Rose Lip Gloss!
The swatches in the picture above are fresh and haven’t dried down yet so they still have a sheen to them but on the picture below it has set. It left a flat, matte lip and it SERIOUSLY stays put. I tried wiping this off with a makeup remover wipe but I ended up having to take a cleasing oil to it to get it fully removed. Amazing. I am obsessed. They only have 4 shades right now but I am anxiously awaiting more. The shade Kai-Lea (pictured below) is a perfect fall shade.
Velvet Rose Lipgloss
I am a gloss lover and I always have been. I keep one in my purse because they are usually way easier to touch up than other lip products and I personally like a shiny/creamy lip look.
This confection of Parisian pink with iridescent sparkle will have you on a sugar high from the first swipe. Don’t just stop and smell the roses – Wear their beauty on your lips. You will fall in love with our velvet rose gloss. It’s radiance and lustrous consistency makes your lips not just look but smell as fabulous as the classic rose.
There is one shade that has no sparkle but the rest of their shades have a healthy dose. They remind me a lot of MAC Dazzleglass, so if you like those you will love these.
The Malibu Sunset Lipstick Collection
I love beautiful, bright lipsticks just as much as the next girl but a good nude shade has my heart for life. Luckily I don’t have to choose within this set of lipsticks. There is something for everyone.
These lipsticks have a satin finish and are the flirtiest shades I have ever seen. There is no shimmer in them and the opacity is wow. They feel good on the lip, almost hydrating even. Super great formula all the way around.
My Fair Lashes Mascara
Mascara is another one of my favorite products of all time. If I don’t wear a stitch of makeup and apply a coat of mascara I instantly feel prettier. There is something about gorgeous lashes that set off a look for me.
Want show-stopping lashes?
Now your lashes will make the ultimate entrance with our extreme lengthening My Fair Lashes Mascara!
This fast drying, flake and smudge-proof formula creates long lasting length with our new innovative wand! The flat side allows the tip to get those tiniest hardest-to-reach lashes without smudging your makeup!
This cruelty & paraben free unique formula works with the mascara wand to provide incredible lash definition and length!
With this ultra lengthening & thickening mascara you will have the fairest lashes of them all!
The wand on this mascara is pretty unique. I can’t quite capture it in a photo but there is a weird bend on the top part and the sides are a little more flat. I like having different options available to me on the same wand because I feel like some sides are better at applying product and some sides are better at combing said product into the rest of the lash.
Like I said in the opening, I don’t think there is a dud in the bunch. Every. Single. Thing. I tried from Velvet 59 is really great and totally worth trying. You can find their products on their website velvet59.com and on Amazon.
