TAOS COSMETICS LIQUID VELVETINES REVIEW/ VIDEO

 I recently received the new liquid velvetines collection from Taos Cosmetics and in it are 5 beautiful dark skin friendly liquid lipsticks that dry out matte and velvety.

 The company is one that focuses on quality makeup for women of colour and i must say this new range of liquid velvetines nailed it at that. The products came in a cute white branded paper bag (as seen above) and the lipsticks come in a transparent plastic with black cover that holds the wand as in most cases. The container is thick andvery  handy, as far as smell there is no offensive chemical smell.

 One general thing ive noticed in this range is that little product goes a long way and they feel light on the lips and not tight hard like peel off mask. They are Nairobi Fever, Eko city, Gold coast, Marrakech and Jozi.

1. Nairobi Fever

  
 This colour is a deep purple colour that is just right for WOC (women of colour) if you are a coco skinned lady and you ever wanted any purple lip stain that isnt too loud but makes a statement this is what you should go for.

2. Eko City

  
 Dare to go red, this is not the average red shade, this shade has ‘depth’ i don’t know how else to explain this rich shade of red, WOC friendly too. But you have to be careful in applying this, make sure you exfoliate and moisturise your lips and apply an even lip pencil so the lipstain doesnt crease on you. And don’t pack it all on, applh layer by layer allowing every layer dry.

3. Gold Coast

  
 This is my favourite of the set, itsjust plain chocolate brown and it goes so well with my dark skin. I love the way this feels and would definitely purchase once this is empty. This works well for all skin types.

4. Marrakech

  
 This is a pretty pink colour that appears a bit darker on application. A little of this goes a long way and its beautiful for light to dark skin tones.

5. Jozi

  
 This shade is a perfect nude lipstick for medium skin tones and light tones, im dark so this came off a bit too light but mixing with with gold coast is just perfect.

Here is the hand swatch of all the shades  (L-Rgold coast, marrakech, jozi, nairobi fever and eko city)
