Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour - Survivita
Application - 4 1/2 | Pigmentation - 5 | Longevity - 5 | Comfort - 5 | Packaging - 5 | Overall - A
Packaging: The packaging is gorgeous, it looks like a piece of jewelry. It comes in a black box with a silk ribbon attached to the top. It's just a very special piece.
Scent: Yes it has a faint sweet scent.
Application: The formula is very creamy and smooth and went on beautifully. I did use a brush on my bottom lip just to get a sharper edge. Also the weight of the packaging took a little getting used to at first.
Transfer-Proof: No, but it didn't get on my teeth as much as I expected.
Comfort: It was very comfortable.
Reapplication/Layering: I had no issues reapplying.
Longevity: It wore really beautifully throughout the day. After eating it faded minimally in the center of the lips. It settled slightly into the lines on my lips, but pressing my lips together fixed that. It continued to look lovely the rest of the night, not fading much more. I wore it again with a liner and really didn't notice too much of a difference in the longevity.
Removal: Easy to remove with @thebodyshop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover.
Overall: Again the packaging is simply stunning, it went on smoothly, felt very comfortable and the longevity was fantastic! While I do think many lower priced lipsticks compare to this formula, you're really paying for the beautiful design of the packaging here and as a makeup collector I feel very lucky to have it in my collection.
Brand claims: This intensely rich color goes on with full coverage and sets with a soft touch matte finish. Formulated with a complex of natural oils and seed butters to enhance moisturize for up to four hours, it provides a protective layer against dryness. These lip colors are available in a universal shade palette, ranging from light to deep tones, across mid-tonal and bright hues of pinks to berries, reds and corals, and nudes and browns.
