Hi everyone! I’m a lipstick addict. I got interested in these affordable lipsticks because of such unusual and eye-catching colors like violet and black.
The color range is really wide and includes 34 colors. But this review is dedicated to only six of them.
Golden Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick
These are quite attractive red bullets with a glossy black ‘belt’
They arrived in a plastic protective wrap.
There is no information on the bullet itself but I doubt I need it at all
The lipsticks are solid, the top is slanted and caved in. Unfortunately I don’t have any initial photos to show you.
As I’ve already mentioned, I own 6 shades.
First of all I was curious to try out the shades 28 and 33.
However let me tell you about each color in my collection and show you some photos.
Some say it’s a dusty rose, but on my lips it looks unexpectedly bright and even dark. I kind of like it, it’s attractive and suitable for everyday wear. But since colors 02 and 07 are ordinary, it makes no sense to show them in the whole makeup.
My fiasco. It’s too pale for me, I’ll wait till summer to try the shade with tanned skin or I’ll simply get rid of it.
A gorgeous red. Unbelievably awesome. Great for nights out or if the color matches your mood.
Photos on my face:
I wouldn’t call this “a look”, since I simply painted my lips and nothing else.
My violet dream. I’ve longed for this color for a really long time, even though I already owned a Lime Crime fake.
As I can foresee all those ‘Argh! How can you wear this!’, I show the color on my lips.
It’s pretty wearable!
Honestly, it looks much better on the swatches on the web than it does on my lips. It’s an ordinary burgundy with a greyish undertone
Oh yeah! Black! It’s so unusual and edgy. Of course it’s not for everyday, but for special occasions - why not?
Now when all the shades have been shown let me tell you a few things about the lipstick quality!
Even though the manufacturer claims these are matte, I’d rather say the lipsticks are satin. The finish is neither matte nor glossy, and the formula is pretty thick. The pigmentation is great, especially in the case of dark shades. After removal, the lipstick doesn’t leave any tint or eat into the lips.
I apply them with lip liners of different colors. With the black lipstick, I wear a black lip liner.
The lipstick don’t settle into wrinkles or bleed. The lasting power is pretty good. Not throughout the whole day, of course, but the lipsticks will look good within 4 hours at least.
Due to the thick formula the lipsticks aren’t easy to apply. It’s not the kind of lipstick that glides like oil.
The lipsticks have a slightly perceptible sweet scent. I barely notice it and it doesn’t irritate me.
In the case with darker shades one should be careful, because gaps may appear after drinking water, and the lips will need a touch up. Everything is OK with nude shades, since these are barely visible anyway.
The lipsticks are easy to remove with micellar water or wet wipes. As I’ve mentioned above, the lipsticks don’t eat into the lips.
These don’t dry lips out. But they can emphasize any imperfections on the lips, though.
Conclusion: These lipsticks have impressed me with both a wide color range and great quality. 5 stars and highly recommended! Don’t be afraid of bright and unusual colors!
