The ColourPop Lux Velvet Liquid Lipsticks are just one of the ColourPop Lux lip formulas they have available. I bought the ColourPop Powder Room Lux Liquid Lipstick Duo in one of their sales last year, and the set has already been discontinued.
However, both shades within the Powder Room Duo are available individually, so I thought I’d still share them with you, incase you wanted to see swatches, and know if the formula was worth trying or not.
In addition to the ColourPop Lux Velvet Liquid Lipsticks, there’s also the Lux Lip Oils and Lux Lip Glosses too. Inside the ColourPop Powder Room Lux Velvet Liquid Lipstick Duo, the two shades are Can U Even and Casual Dress, and it was the lightest of the duos available, with both shades looking super pretty.
“A plush, velvet liquid lipstick with medium buildable coverage that creates a soft, diffused look. features an innovative whipped formula that contains a blend of antioxidant rich ingredients pomegranate, goji fruit and grape seed extract to nourish lips.“
When writing reviews, I always try to include a comparison in terms of formula, finish or shade, to make the review as helpful as possible, but I honestly can’t think of any other liquid lipstick which has a formula like the ColourPop Lux Velvet Liquid Lipsticks.
It’s a very thin liquid lipstick, which feels powdery once dried down, which I guess is where the ‘Velvet’ description comes from. I really like how thin and light it feels on the lips, and it’s so easy to apply.
The doefoot applicator is long and thin, which applies a light and even layer on the lips, and they last for around four hours before any signs of fading too. I’d read negative reviews on the ColourPop Lux Velvet Liquid Lipsticks formula, but I think it’s a lovely liquid lipstick formula.
In terms of shade, these two look seriously identical on the lips, so you definitely don’t need them both. ColourPop describes Casual Dress as being a honey nude, whilst Can U Even is a pinky nude.
Honestly, on the lips they’re the same, which might explain why the duo was discontinued, but it’s a really pretty shade, and it’s the kind of lipstick you can apply, and not have to worry, as it doesn’t feather, crumble or look patchy – it just gradually fades, and I’d definitely buy more shades.
