    If you're a thorough reader of my blog then you must know I'm crazy about the Turkish brand Golden Rose. I haven't talked about it very often yet but I do want to review every single product I own from the brand (many of these products are right here, by the way). My goal as a blogger is to share the things I love and speak my mind about the products I try out. Today, we're talking about something many of us love : matte lipsticks !

    Let me remind you that Golden Rose offers matte lipstick jumbos and matte lipsticks that are both the same color - or maybe almost the same according to what you see. I always see a slight difference between the two formats.
    You may have read my comparison between the Velvet Matte Lipstick 02 and the Matte Lipstick Crayon 10. Today, I'm focusing on the Velvet Matte Lipstick #14 and the Matte Lipstick Crayon #08.

    Those are products I bought in Cookie's Makeup, the official Golden Rose reseller in France. The Velvet Matte lipsticks cost €3.90 for 4.2g while the Matte Lipstick Crayon lipsticks cost €3.50 for 3.5g. They're to be kept for 18 months max once they've been opened but I'm pretty sure there won't be any left by that time !

    Aside from the shape of the lipsticks, the main difference resides in the texture : the Velvet Matte lipsticks are just a teeny bit drier than the Matte Lipstick Crayon. Don't get me wrong : it's really easy to apply the Velvet Matte lipsticks but the Matte Lipstick Crayon lipsticks glide even more smoothly on your lips.

    There's no indication of which color you've picked when you have a Velvet Matte lipstick in your hand, just a number which can be useful when you have several lipsticks of this range and they're all in the same place. As for the Matte Lipstick Crayon lipsticks, the bottom of the jumbo is the exact same color as the lipstick. Given they are kind of big, I do appreciate that because I put them all together in a pot and then I can easily see what I pick.

    The packaging is really beautiful and sober in both cases. I really like how easy the jumbos are to apply but I do prefer the burgundy, black and golden packaging of the Velvet Matte lipsticks, of finer finish : they are like small jewels to me.

    When you look closely, you might find a slight difference between the two colors. Number 08 looks like it's cooler than the Velvet Matte #14 but it may just be the different textures messing with our eyes.

    On Cookie's Makeup website, this lipstick is called "Cassis" which means Blackcurrant. I haven't eaten blackcurrant for a very long time and don't remember precisely its color but for a reason, I think the lipstick is aptly named.

    COMPARISON BETWEEN THE VELVET MATTE LIPSTICK 14 AND THE MATTE LIPSTICK CRAYON 08

    The fact I've used an artificial light to take my pics may be the reason the two colors are a bit different on my face (not enough light outside to get the exact shade pictured). Anyways, the colors seem similar with #08 a bit cooler.
    Both can be worn without a lipbalm but I'd advise wearing one if you have dry lips : since the lipsticks are matte, they emphasize dry patches of skin !

    WHAT DO I THINK OF THIS VELVET MATTE LIPSTICK AND THIS MATTE LIPSTICK CRAYON ?

    These colors are some of my favorites : I wear them a lot and I love this pink with purple undertones color, even though they're not nude at all.
    Both are really easy to apply : the jumbo makes it quick to apply lipstick since it glides so smoothly. As for the lipstick, its drier texture allows us to be more precise and stay in control of the lipstick when we're in a hurry.

    These last a crazy long time, several hours in a day. If you eat an oily meal or one with gravy, you're going to have to apply some again before you get on with your day ! Careful though : when wearing a lipbalm underneath a lipstick, the lipsticks tend to move around even more !

    I'm writing some more comparison articles between the Velvet Matte lipsticks and the Matte Lipstick Crayon lipsticks that I'll publish soon as well as a general presentation of the Cookie's Makeup store !
    While you wait, just go right there to see all the colors that Cookie's Makeup offers, it's a dream come true - and so cheap !
