From what I used to be advised about Golden Rose once I requested about what’s value testing, I gathered that their lip merchandise are the bomb. I used to be notably advisable to attempt their matte lip merchandise, so their Velvet Matte lipsticks and these Matte Crayons. I mentioned in my New in that I bought a number of e-mails and messages from readers and pals about actually darkish, plumy shades and I wished to seek out actually inexpensive choices, not simply that I might share my finds with them, however in fact additionally for me as I did not have a correct actually darkish vampy shade. I picked up two of the darkest shades, 02 and 03, later I additionally bought 05 to swatch as a mortgage from my cousin, who purchased it not figuring out the model.
Texture: These are very creamy for matte pencils and are just like Maybelline’s Shade Drama. There isn’t any annoying dragging with these, they glide on the lips simply properly. The formulation is definitely a bit creamier than their Velvet Matte lipsticks, which is maybe a bit sudden. Despite the fact that they’re in a pen kind, I did not get that exact, crisp edge with these. At most shades that will be unimportant, however in relation to darkish shades you’d need the nicest doable utility, so decide up a lip liner for these. They’re properly pigmented, however you may want an extra layer to get a full impression of color. The end is sort of an honest matte, however nonetheless has a little bit of the creamy shine. These do switch.
02 is a deep burgundy pink that’s similar to Mac’s Diva, however a bit extra cool, so should you ever seemed for a less expensive different right here you’ve it. Shade 23 from the Velvet Matte vary is principally the identical.
03 is a deep plum with some brown tones. I have to admit it was not love at first sight, as something purple or brown tends to look terrible on me, however I gave it a shot since I’ve nothing comparable and it is deeper than 02. It isn’t my favorite on the lips. I really feel it lacks some vibrancy and pink tones. Shade 29 from the Velvet Matte is its equal.
The final shade, 05, is a traditional burgundy color that could be a shade lighter than 02, however nearer to a real pink than that one.
Endurance: I am unable to say these are probably the most lengthy lasting lip merchandise, particularly contemplating how darkish the shades are that I picked, however it’s nonetheless very first rate and these will final hours one the lips. They will additionally survive consuming, however at consuming the perimeters are the primary to go. In case your lips are likely to get dry throughout the day, chances are you’ll discover these drying, although they are not actively drying, it is simply the the formulation is not offering any further moisture or care.
Scent: I discover no scent.
Packaging: These should be sharpened. It is good since you’ll get extra precision, however unhealthy as a result of it is a kind of annoying chores and also you lose among the product every time. Nevertheless, I’ve used these a number of occasions to date and have not sharpened them as soon as. Components right here.
Value and availability: These value an inexpensive 3.90 € (value in Slovenia) in Golden Rose retailers/stalls.
For the value these are fairly good. The feel is properly creamy, pigmentation is sweet they usually final decently on the lips. Should you’re on the lookout for low cost vampy shades, now you realize the place to test, however additionally they have a pleasant choice of extra pure trying colors. I do not fairly get why so many shades are the identical as of their Velvet Matte vary, however at the least you’ve an choice of selecting between the 2.
By the way in which, Jasmina from Make-up Enviornment swatched most of those right here and a comparability with shades from the Velvet Matte vary is right here.
Have an ideal day!
