e.l.f. Beauty Squad Velvet Matte Lipsticks | Review & Swatches

I recently had a surprise package from e.l.f. show up at my door, and I thought it would be really fun to share it with you all. This is not the first time that e.l.f. has sent me free stuff for being an e.l.f. Beauty Squad A-lister. Last year they sent me a bunch of new colors of their moisturizing lipsticks, and I have a post dedicated to them that you can check out if you have not already.

The two new shades of their velvet matte lipsticks that they sent me are completely exclusive for e.l.f. Beauty Squad members that have A-lister status. These colors will not go on sale to the general public, and will not be given to those in the other Beauty Squad tiers. However, it is super easy to become a Beauty Squad member and to reach A-lister status! All you have to do is to make a free account with e.l.f., and be sure that you are signed in every time that you make an online purchase. When you are starting out at zero points, every $1 you spend will give you two points, putting you in the Glow Getter tier. Once you reach 101 points, you enter the next tier where every $1 spent gives you four points. This is the Rising Star tier. Finally, you become an A-lister when you hit 401 points, and you get six points for every $1 spent. You can also redeem your points in exchange for full-sized products, as well as many other perks. The e.l.f. Beauty Squad reward program is a lot more generous than other beauty reward systems out there. It is free to join and to participate, so why not?!

I have two other velvet matte lipsticks that I purchased on my own, and I have to say that they are very impressive. The colors that I swatched in the past swatched just like these new shades. The velvet matte lipsticks are incredibly pigmented in just one swipe. The pigmentation is also very bright and intense. Being that these are lipsticks, you do not have any dry down time involved. The formula is matte right off the bat. While I have not yet worn the velvet matte lipsticks on my lips, I can say that the swatches are not drying by any means. I would fully expect them to feel comfortable on the lips, and possibly moisturizing like their moisturizing lipstick line.

 I think that e.l.f. really did a good job with Brick. This Brick red color truly is the color of any red brick building that I have ever seen. I have way too many reds in my collection, but this one is quite a unique beast for me, since it is not a red-red. I think that it is perfect for fall and extremely wearable.

 Orchid is a bright fuchsia lipstick, and I love it to pieces. I adore vibrant fuchsias just as much as I love nudes and mauves. This lipstick will be filed in my collection right next to Urban Decay's Firebird, among others. I also think that Orchid will be great for fall. Hats off to you, e.l.f.!

I hope you enjoyed this post that was a little bit different and on the shorter side. My final thoughts on these exclusive e.l.f. Beauty Squad goodies are that I am digging these shades with every fiber of my being, the formula is nice, and I am thankful for e.l.f.'s kindness. Are you a Beauty Squad member? Have you tried any of the velvet matte lipsticks? Let's chat in the comments. Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.

  2. This velvet matte lipstick review is really nice. Thanks to share this beautiful velvet matte lipstick review. I believe makeup is an important part of women's life and a perfect lipstick gives a great look of hole makeup. I can't imagine a single day without my makeups. I love to use my favorite Liquid Matte Lipstick for my lip.
