Pur Cosmetics is a cruelty free brand that carries mineral based cosmetics and skin care. The Pur Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lipsticks and Chrome Glaze Lip Glosses are newer products to the line, and we're going to be talking about them today. Like their other products, they're cruelty free, free of parabens, and made in the USA.
Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick Review
The Pur Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lipsticks are a vegan option for a liquid lipstick, which is awesome. I haven't come across a ton of those, so I wanted to make sure I pointed that out.
The applicator on the Velvet Matte Lipsticks is an angled sponge tip that comes to a point. It's also flexible, so these are super easy to apply and get a precise line with, which I appreciate. You don't get too much excess product, so you won't need to worry about making a mess with these, either.
Pur Velvet Matte Lips
There are 10 shades of the Velvet Matte Lipsticks; I have six of these to share with you.
Before we discuss the colors or get into the swatches, let's talk about the formula.
These are called Velvet Matte Lipsticks, and I think that's a good name for them. They have a mousse formula that is opaque in one swipe. They're heavily pigmented and feel soft and moisturizing on the lips. They don't travel around or bleed like a lip gloss would and they are matte, but they don't dry down. They're not transfer proof; they will wear off and they will smudge. They do last pretty well as long as they aren't disturbed, but if you're eating, you'll need to reapply. 
As I said, I have 6 of the 10 shades.

Pur Liquid Lipstick Swatches

As you can tell, they're super pigmented and pretty. When you first apply them, they're kind of shiny, but once they "dry down" they go completely matte but they never quite set.

When I first got them, I thought Oh Bae and FBF would be super similar but they aren't. Dutty Wine and Addiction are almost identical, though so you definitely won't need both. The only difference is Addiction shows up more red on me and Dutty Wine shows up more purple, but in the picture, they look the same.

On the day I did the lip swatches, my lips were pretty dry so they did sink into the cracks of my lips a bit. Normally, they don't do this. 

Let's talk about the Chrome Glazes.
Pur Cosmetics Lip Gloss

The Chrome Glaze is a High Shine Lip Gloss that comes in 6 shades. I have all 6 of these to show you.

The applicators are the same as the applicator on the Velvet Mattes. The Chrome Glazes are also pretty pigmented, which was surprising to me. I didn't expect them to be so pigmented. They're also very reflective.
Pur Lip Gloss Review

They're pretty sticky and they do last a while. They stay in place pretty well, but you'll notice in the lip swatches, they do tend to bleed a little and it's super noticeable with the dark shades, so without a lip liner those might be a mess.

We all know lip glosses aren't my jam but I wanted to show these to you anyway, and if you follow me on IG, you've seen me wear these a few times so I do like them as far as lip glosses go. Just remember, lip liner with the darker color or it's going to bleed onto your skin.

Okay, swatches!

And just to really show the shine...
Pur Cosmetics Lip Gloss Swatches

The shine is real. They're really pretty, like, really. DIY looks super light and scary, but it's the one out of the bunch that isn't super pigmented, so it comes out looking more natural.

I also received the On Point Lip Liner in See Thru with these but I forgot to take pictures of it. It's a transparent lip liner and it's also vegan. It does help with the bleeding of lip colors and I really like it, I honestly didn't even think about using it for the lip swatches. It's also Gluten & Paraben free.

Final thoughts: Even though the Velvet Mattes don't dry down completely, I still really like them. I think the colors are pretty and I don't always want something that totally dries down. Some days, my lips need to breathe.
Even though I'm not a huge fan of lip glosses, I like the Chrome Glazes and I can see myself wearing them pretty often this spring and summer. I still prefer my IT Cosmetics gloss, because it isn't sticky at all, but these are in second place for me. I'll definitely get a lot of use out of them, and again, the colors are pretty.

You can grab all of these from PurCosmetics.com for $18 each.

Which is your favorite color?

  1. I like that the matte ones don't dry down so much that your lips would look dry.

    1. Yes! It's going to be great for those who don't like the drier formulas.

  2. I love the glosses (lol, we are opposites). :) Of the mattes, I really loved Dutty Wine on you - so vampy & I'm drawn to deep dark colors.

    1. Haha! I always love the idea of dark colors and then hate the way they look on! It's so weird. I don't really have the confidence to wear them out of my house, for sure.

  3. FBF and Smarty Pants are so pretty! And do I spy a bunny behind you?!?!?

    1. Actually, it's a chinchilla. And there's 3 cages behind me with 6 of them, haha! I rescued two, a boy and a girl and those two became six unexpectedly, lol! They are super cute, though. And forever photobombing me.

  4. Gorgeous swatches. I would love to pick up several of the Velvet Mattes.

  5. Those lippies are great! I love Addiction!

  6. I like the colours, but they look a liiittle too lip-liney for my tastes.

    1. I get what you mean. My lips were especially dry which contributed a lot to it. Some colors will just do it naturally, mostly the deep shades.

  7. Ever After is gorgeous. I'm more of a matte girl myself.

    1. I'm definitely a matte girl. Glosses always make my hair get stuck to my lips and I just don't have time for that. Ever After is probably my favorite of the bunch.

  8. Loving the look of arm candy!!!

  9. Such pretty shades - I think I'd like the glosses. My mom is obsessed with Pur, so I'll have to show her these!

  10. These are some really beautiful shades, they look great on you x
