The name 'velvet' suggests to me a lighter finish, but let me tell you once these have dried they are full on mattes with a bizarre powdery finish. Now I love this, I am a big fan of a matte lip. Layering is not that much of an issue, however after three coat I find the finish feels tacky on my lips. I actually struggle with the application of these products as I find they tend to bleed slightly despite the applicator nip being slightly pointed. One thing I will give to Bourjois is that these lipsticks do not budge. You'll have no Miranda Sings smudges to be seen her. They really do last all day. Anyway who wants to be touching up their lipstick all day? Not this girl!
The lipstick comes in at £8.99 each and like I said the range has eight shade and can be picked up in drugstores. So in conclusion I probably just need to try some more shades.
Lots of Love
