Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on

So…Victoria’s Secret is jumping into the matte liquid lipstick game. As I consider myself something of a connoisseur of liquid lipsticks, I had to add one to my last bra order.

Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain is $14 (practically a steal) and comes in 14 shades. I chose “Obsessed”, a bright cherry red/pink. The formula is thick and smooth, and applies well. The formula is an enigma – it lasts all day – 12+ hours – but it gets ALL over EVERYTHING. It was on my teeth, on my coffee cup, on my fingers…I don’t even know how it got on my fingers. I don’t even know how it stayed on my lips all day, looking good, while simultaneously getting all over everything else.

It doesn’t dry out your lips – no cracking or dryness, but it is truly a stain. After “removing” it for the night, my lips had a faint pink stain (similar to Benetint) for a day or so.

This is a good product – I’m thinking I need to try other colors – maybe a good add when I need to hit a shipping requirement on an order.
