True Velvet Lipsticks
And she’s back!
It’s hard to be a part of the beauty community and to not have heard of the legendary Lisa Eldridge and her one of a kind True Velvet lipsticks, they really have set the industry by storm.
With the first launch of her True Velvet Lipstick Reds collection this time last year and the Summer Pinks Collection in July of this year, Mrs Eldridge and her lipsticks have been the talk of the beauty town.
Well, the await of the nudes and restock of the now infamous reds is upon us. With it, I thought I’d take you through each of the True Velvet Lipstick Red shades, just to tempt your fancy.
Choosing your shade of True Velvet Lipsticks
It can be difficult to know whether a lipstick will suit you or not when buying online but what Lisa Eldridge being a world-renown makeup artist has done well, is provide images of the shades on multiple skin tones, showing just how universal each shade is.
Below I’ve shown images on myself, however, do check out lisaeldgride.com for more swatches.
All lipsticks are cruelty free.
The every girls perfect red. A shade which adds a sparkle to the eye, a brightening to the face and teeth thanks to its blue hue. It oozes confidence. It’s classic. Timeless. Ageless. Wonderfully bright and beautifully bold, this is a beautiful red.
Think Spanish sunsets, flowing dresses and fluttery lashes. A rich orange-red hue that lifts a complexion. With a pigment that is rich and texture that is soft and buttery this is a dream to wear.
Take me to the 1920’s and dance with me flapper girl style. It’s sophisticated. Sexy. Grown-up, vintage glam with a modern twist. Deep and rich, this brick red is, as described by Lisa as “something of a chameleon and ranges from an intense brown/red to a soft, brick red, depending on skin tone and method of application”.

True Velvet Style
They are festive and fancy. Can be worn full on or blotted on as a stain. Both sultry and sexy, yet modern, vintage and glam they are a wonderful oxymoron if ever there was one. The True Velvet Lipsticks are insanely pigmented, incredibly longlasting and a demi-matte formula that is comfortable to wear. A beauty to behold, these lipsticks look like true velvet fabric, something that has never been achieved before. I am in love. No, I am besotted. my favourite reds.

Read my review of the True Velvet Reds in ‘Truly Velvet Lisa Eldridge True Velvet Lipsticks” and the Pinks in ‘Lisa Eldridge Lipstick Summer Pinks Collection”
Those look so nice on you! I haven’t been brave enough to try red. I have this weird insecurity about it.
thank you!Oh really? You could try a balm formula, something like Benefit’s chachabalm which is light and therefor less opaque and easier to wear.
I don’t wear al it of makeup but that lipstick looks gorgeous on you! Makes me want to try it for sure!
Thank you! They’re really beautiful lipsticks and make me feel like the ‘real me’ inside when I wear them!
I’m so scared of red lipstick!
Oh no! Don’t be, it can be tricky to find the right tone for you. But if you start with a more sheer formula, like a balm, it can be easier to wear and less scary! I might do a blog post on this!
I am reaching for my red lipstick right now! great blog post, thank you x
they’re a fav colour of mine too! Thanks for reading, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
I love anything makeup and this color looks relly good on you. I will have to check it out.
they’re beautiful lipsticks!
Love a great red lip over the holiday! Thank you!!!
me too, it’s perfect isn’t it!
You look awesome in red 🙂 Thanks for the post!
thank you and thanks for reading!
All three of these lipsticks look so pretty on you! I lean toward the berry shades. I have been a Mary Kay consultant and Director, and I remember when we did skincare classes, we would have everyone in the class use the same shade of lipstick, to show that it looks different on everyone, due to the acidity in your lips. Nice post!
that’s so interesting to hear! It’s fascinating to see how colour works on a range of skin tones isn’t it. Thank you, they’re beautiful lipsticks!
Ah I love the Velvet Ribbon! I need to get this for my mother!
it’s such a stunning shade! It’s sold out twice before also so very popular!
