Love of my life

My beauty resolution for 2020 is to pan makeup; I'm not on a makeup ban, but this girl's beauty space is expanding.... and I forgot to swatch the lipstick.

I wanted this post to go live in 2019 but I didn't feel like blogging even though I wanted to...so 2020.


Lisa Eldridge launched her first True Velvet Collection with Velvet RibbonVelvet Jazz and Velvet Morning back in November 2018. I added Velvet Ribbon to cart and procrastinated for about ten minutes, and bam! It went out of stock. I wanted to have it because it is similar to Ruby Woo.

Then I forgot about it, about everything. I was too busy to even look at the swatches of her next launch, but I had a glimpse of Go Lightly. How I overcame my impulsiveness, I do not know. Rainbow spill was my choice but I could hardly make use of it everyday. Then...

I chose Love of My Life because I wanted a colour I could wear everyday and finish it off within few months. I knew it I'd love the texture, and I want to experience what hitting a pan or finishing off a lipstick feels like. I still want Velvet Beauty and Velvet Muse and maybe even Velvet Fawn. I thought these would turn out pale on me but looking at the swatches on medium-olive skin tones, I regret! I don't know if Lisa will restock them.

This shade is truly universal. I am sure this will look good even on darker skin tones. A soft rose pink with a neutral undertone in lucent finish. Love of My Life is cruelty-free and 100% vegan. To put down in one line: This formula is quite unique. I know of lipsticks that form tides because of their balmy textures; this does not and that makes me reach out for this even more, even though I wore this only twice because I was waiting for the moment. :D

Here is how Love of My Life looks on medium-olive skin tone:

The finish, Luxuriously Lucent, in Lisa's words, indeed feels luxurious and lasts for about 4 hours and leaves a soft rosy tint. I love love love the pale gold and magnetic lipstick case. I have not yet gone lip liner hunting for this one, but I want to find a cruelty-free lip liner to go with this colour. Lisa's suggestions are Lancôme - Le Lip Liner - Pourquoi Pas 317 and Barry M - Lip Liner - Dark Pink 2.

What is the best thing I like about this lipstick? The colour.
The camera fails do justice to the colour and lip swatches here. So I tried clicking under both lighting conditions with all sort of settings. The colour looks deeper in the pictures. In person, this colour is more soft and not as deep and vibrant as in the pictures. Probably a kind of pink that'll flatter all looks from soft to smokey.

To conclude, I love Lisa Eldridge's Luxuriously Lucent Lip Colour in Love of My Life, and I also want the aforementioned shades. I am resisting to get the True Velvet Collection because I cannot wear reds everyday. I am really hoping to finish this one off soon, so I am wearing it everyday, even though I don't wear face makeup everyday and it still flatters my bare face. This alone got me excited enough to spend a fortune to get hold of this.

I paid the shipping, and I had to pay custom duty, and I wasn't happy about it.

But Love of My Life sounds so cheesy! 😏
