This shade always remind me of the very famous-“ooh la la  ooh la la ” song from ‘The Dirty Picture’ as it is the perfect bold red to carry !!!!

???????????????????????????????

I love how creamy it is ,yet matte and super reasonable!!!

Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: Rs.225 for 4.23gms but now they have increased the price to rs.275..:(

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: The packaging is is bit boring with a plastic outer covering and the shade name and number at the bottom.A shade indicator is also provided which helps in finding the shade you are looking for incase you have more than one Velvet Mattes which I am sure everybody has!!:)

SHADE: Red!!! Bright red!!! Bold red!!!  Statement Red!!! These describe the shade very well.It has slight blue undertones and gives a warmer feel on my skin tone but an Instant Brightner!!!

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: This range has one of the best formula.The lipstick is matt but nit drying.They feel comfortable on lips and stays on and on.

All the shades in this range are a Hit!!

???????????????????????????????

The shade Hot Hot Hot is incredibly pigmented.One swipe will give you  a decent amount of colour but Two swipe will provide a blast of shade on the lips.

???????????????????????????????

I suggest keeping the eye look soft or neutral eye makeup and natural flushed cheeks with this lip shade else it can look a bit OTT.

???????????????????????????????

The staying power is around 4-5 hours .This shade stains a lot and leaves my lips almost reddish which needs a proper makeup remover to remove!!

  • bright shade.
  • reasonable.
  • creamy texture.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: Yes,this is a great shade of red and flattering on all skin tones.The formula is great.

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the I-glide eye pencils is really soft ,it is very creamy so prone to breakage.Although they are smooth but dry to a smudge-proof & long-wear finish.

???????????????????????????????

I like how i can smudge it easily during the initial seconds of application and blend it like anything because of its creamy texture.This way,i often use it as an all over lid eyeshadow and it looks very pretty.The purple-pink shimmer adds zing to the shade!!!!

???????????????????????????????

Staying power is around 5 hours after which i could see slight fading around the crease.Also,as an eyeliner,it stays for about 5-6 hours.

PROS:

  • a very pretty purple shade.
  • the shimmer present isn’t gritty and harsh on eyes.
  • can be used as an eye pencil as well as an eyeshadow.
  • decent staying power.
  • once set,it becomes smudge-proof.
  • water-resistant.

CONS:

  • the texture is very creamy to prone to breakage.Also,a lot of product is wasted due to sharpening.
  • cannot be used on the waterline.

RATING:4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:Yes.definitely!!!There are more shades in the range and those in hurry can always use as an eyeshaodw too!!!
