New Makeup Brand Alert! Introducing Velvet 59.

Have you heard of the VELVET 59 line yet? I’m not sure if the line is called Velvet 59 by Paris Manning or just Velvet 59. Anyway, the creator is a 22 year-old world traveler that grew up around cosmetics her whole life and looked up to the classic beauties of yesteryear and wanted to create a brand that captured that glamour but with a modern twist. All the products are vegan and cruelty-free and she uses some really unique ingredients in some of them.

Choose from lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, an eye shadow palette, contour palette and lip glosses.

First up, The Malibu Sunset Lipstick Collection. These creamy lipsticks in the metallic rose gold cases lasted about 4 to 5 hours on lips and each gave off a matte velvet finish. The four shades are totally wearable for a lot of skin tones. See anything you like?

Thanks for sharing an alternative cosmetic line that's vegan! I'm wondering how well you saw these lipsticks last for when you wore them? Looking to alternatives for bridal clients that wish for vegan products and cruelty free! Thank you for sharing again!

Hi Olivia, as I said in the review, I got about 4 to 5 hours. These are transferable though so I would be wary when it comes to bridal clients. I just picture getting it on a white dress by accident! I got longer wear but a matter finish with the MAC Matte and Retro Matte Lipsticks. Really like those a lot the more I wear them. :)
