This is the fourth comparison I do between a Velvet Matte Lipstick and a Matte Lipstick Crayon from Golden Rose - today's about a fresh, perfect color for these warm days, a pink color with warm, reddish undertones. Golden Rose's Velvet Matte Lipstick 12 is actually the first matte lipstick I've gotten at Cookie's Makeup - I didn't know the range at all and Noël, one of the managers saw me hesitating and offered me one, saying that the Velvet Matte Lipsticks were one of the best sellers of the brand. This was it : I fell in love and I now have about a dozen of these lipsticks in my collection...
All Velvet Matte Lipsticks cost €3.90 for 4.2g of lipstick whereas the Matte Lipstick Crayons cost €3.50 for 3.5g.
Both formats are great to use and really creamy too but the jumbos are even creamier. Maybe this means that the Velvet Matte Lipsticks are more matte ? I like using the lipstick for a precise, on fleek lip makeup and I use the jumbo when I'm in a hurry and I just want some color on my lips without a full makeup.
The finish is almost matte hence the name Velvet Matte, a very classy finish that's perfect for day to day makeup. Both formats have the same color, a medium warm pink that suits a day or night makeup - either way, it looks great. I am more fond of cooler colors like the Velvet Matte Lipstick 14 but I was really surprised to see how well a warm color suited my skintone the first time I used this color.

Comparison - Matte Lipstick Crayon 11 vs Velvet Matte Lipstick 12
Both lipsticks have the exact same color. Later I bought the Velvet Matte Lipstick 14 and thought it was really close to number 12 but, as I said above, the shade of number 14 is cooler, pinker and darker too. As for number 32, it's even cooler and darker, and more purple than both first colors.
Do you know Golden Rose's lipsticks ? Have you ever tried their Velvet Matte Lipsticks and their Matte Lipstick Crayons ?
