In this video, I show you and swatch some new shades from UK Makeup Artist, Lisa Eldridge’s True Velvet Lipstick Collection!
I adore Lisa’s lipsticks as they’re flattering and highly pigmented 🙂
I hope you enjoy the watch, I mainly wanted to focus on the shades for you to see – in case you were interested in what they look like!! I also show you how exactly I picked my shades.
If you want to see the swatches, then please watch the video! Texture shots are down below 🙂

(An orangey-red). Quite unique, I’m hoping it’ll suit my yellow tone instead of blending in with it.
A nude shade that I am quite fond of. I don’t think it’ll flush me out, but will instead subtly enhance the lips while I can go ham on the eyes.
Very nice unique colour – it’s like a dusty rose. Really think it would make the lips look flushed.

This is the previous Youtube video I uploaded swatching some of the original True Velvet Lipstick Collection!
This here is Velvet Blush – do you see how the bullet is cut in a way where it looks like fabric?
Velvet Affair Texture:
You can see it looks like fabric here (it doesn’t effect the feel of the lipstick on the lips! And of course the texture does fade away with increased rubbing against the lips.
Velvet Blush Texture:
The cold metallic gold contrasts with the ‘blushing’ shade. It looks like carpet texture to me.

My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
