[productsample/affiliatelinks] I posted about a reintroduction to Trish McEvoy last week and just have two more products to tell you about – the Veil Lip Colours. I thought ‘veil’ meant that they’d be very lightly pigmented, but in fact they’re highly pigmented but in a silky ‘veil’ like formula.
If you’re picky about how lipsticks feel on your lips (I am) then these will be a revelation because they’re made to a kind of melty formula that you just can’t really feel on your lips. I thought from the texture that they contained hyaluronic and yet it doesn’t appear anywhere on the ingredient listings. The shades I have are Wild Rose and Dressy Red – both gorgeous, enlivening shades that will suit most tones.
Wild Rose is a peachy red while Dressy Red has some blue tone to it. The finish is lightly sheeny and I found the last to be good but not to a long last level. I think it’s hard to say how long a lipstick will stay on anyone else – even the long last formulas will disappear fast if you eat oily food or are constantly sipping at tea or coffee. The art of keeping a lipstick it’s full stated time relies on not eating, speaking or drinking, I’m sure! I never mind about refreshing the colour – to me, it just seems like part and parcel of wearing lipstick.
