If you made it to this page, you more than likely appreciate vintage and retro looks.
Well today I want to talk to you about this new pinup inspired makeup brand...It is brand spanking new, and a 22 year old gal by the name of Paris is behind it. Though, I don't know Paris personally, I am extremely proud of her and the brand she has created. All of the Velvet 59 products are Cruelty Free, Vegan, Gluten Free, and Paraben Free. She deserves a round of applause.
Let me give you a little glimpse of the makeup goodies that showed up on my doorstep courtesy of Velvet 59.
Contour Is A Girl's Best Friend contour palette
The Contour Is A Girl's Best Friend contour palette includes matte and shimmer shades that are cream to powder. What I find impressive in this palette of only 6 shades is the color range. You'll get a fair ivory to a deep rich chocolate brown to four other shades in between. Makes me happy, because a lot of the contour palettes that we see nowadays lack deeper shades of brown. So thanks Velvet 59. :)
Matte to the Max liquid lipsticks
Confession. This was my first time trying out a liquid lipstick. And I'm happy that Velvet 59 was the one to pop my cherry lovin' heart.
It was really fun seeing how this liquid lipstick went from liquid to matte in just a few seconds. I imagined it to be a very messy application and thought it would bleed, especially the Gigi color.
But I am extremely pleased with Gigi! Gigi is a brick red, so like a redish orange and slightly rusty.
(here I am wearing Gigi, if you follow me on Snapchat then you've seen me rockin' it a lot lately.)
It's beautiful and think it will compliment many skintones, from Maryilyn Monroe to Etta James.
The longevity in wear, I can't really say because I haven't kept track of how long it lasts on my lips. A couple of hours? I don't know. And I honestly don't mind because it's fun to apply. :)
Pictured above is the liquid lipstick in the shade Pink Cadillac, I would describe it as an uber mod Barbie pink. It goes on lighter than what it looks like in the photo.
Very pretty, but too light for my complexion. I'll probably mix it with another shade . :)
Fun fact: Matte to the Max liquid lipsticks are made with Sacha Inchi Oil from the Amazonian Forest. Sacha Inchi Oil is a powerful virgin seed oil
All of the Velvet 59 creamy lipsticks pay tribute to the Malibu Sunsets here in Los Angeles, California with cute names like Coral Canyon and PCH. Adorable. Pigmented.
And I adore the packaging. well done.
There are also some other cute Velvet 59 products you guys should check out.
The mascara! I can dig it!
I think Paris is on to something with Velvet 59.
But what do you think of this makeup line so far? Will you be shopping this vintage glamour cuteness?
If you do, let me know if you get the mascara and how it works for you.
