BLK Cosmetics by Anne Curtis Velvet Lip Cream Swatches and First Impressions


And the third (and last for now!) installment in BLK Cosmetics' lip products! Anne did hint that there are a lot of releases set for 2018, although she didn't say as to what kind of releases they were. So for now, this is the third collection from the brand that I am featuring. 

To recap, Anne Curtis has a brand called BLK Cosmetics now, and they launched just last month. She currently has 3 lip lines in her brand, namely the All Day Intense Matte Lipstick, which is a matte lipstick through and through. She also has a Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick line, for those who are looking for something unapologetically matte. 

This is her Velvet Lip Cream, which is a lipstick (like her all day intense matte lipstick), but differs in the sense that it's a lot like intensely pigmented lip balm instead of a lipstick per se. It's very emollient, and provides a soothing effect on cracked lips. 

I am guessing that since this line has a soothing effect, and consumers will tend to swipe on a lot, Anne chose shades that lean towards natural everyday looks. Her whole lip collection is all about bringing in the pigment, and this is super super pigmented as well, that I think she made up for it by creating lighter and less intense shades. I can see myself swiping this like crazy everyday without fear of looking overtly done or trying hard. 

Okay! So there are four shades for this! There's Alluring, Classy, Flirty, and Refined.

A strong brownish red, a lot like burgundy. This is more intense than BLK Intense Matte Lipstick in Fearless.

A cool pinkish nude. This, for me, is a deeper and bluer mauve version of BLK Liquid Lipstick in Sassy.

The brand describes this as a coral pink, although I find this to be a mix of nude and hot pink. This is a rosy pink to me...

A peachy nude. This is the lighter, muted version of All Day Intense Matte Lipstick in Elegant, if you ask me. Elegant is what I'd use when I want a stronger and edgier look, Refined is what I'd use for everyday.

And here are the swatches! As you can see, the shades are what most people would reach for everyday. I'm not too sure about Alluring, but for the other 3 shades, they're so wearable.
