If you’re a fan of matte shadows but find that most mattes have too much drag upon application, you might like this collection since the shadows do apply very smoothly even over primer. But if you’re a lover of rich saturated color with some oomph, this collection is not for you. I will continue to cherish my beloved Stopping Traffic but the rest of the Velvet collection is a big NO for me.
And for those of you who like velvety matte eye shadows, I did swatch some of the colors (the ones I liked the best) on my arm for you. But if you want a true velvety plush textured eye shadow in the light to mid-tone range, I highly recommend Aromaleigh's "Eye Plush" collection. I own and love every single eye shadow in that collection. However, my personal favorite is Sunny Disposition.
