REVIEW: Skin by John Robert Powers' Velvet Matte Liquid Lip Shades

John Robert Powers is a well-established intellectual property specializing in the teaching of personal development, personality enhancement and imaging, as well as communications, modeling, and acting.

In 2017, they launched Skin by John Robert Powers. It's minimalist skincare and beauty products provided for us to be more confident in ourselves; from toner to day and night creams, to moisturizing lip colors, to facial wash, and now to their newest velvet matte liquid lip shades.

Packaging: The packaging is completely discreet, and the box is classy. I like that there are cards inside with my name on it, and a short message from them—felt special to be addressed on. The velvet matte comes from a tube with a twist-off cap and with an applicator stick. They indicate as well the ingredients of the mattes, how to use it, and where to find them.

Scent: I can’t describe, but I love the smell.

  • Yes, it's highly pigmented, lightweight and comfortable.
  • Ultra long-wearing, yes! I swear! It stays on my lips the whole day. Plus it doesn't fade right away because it leaves a stain on the lips.* Non feathering, yes, but the non-bleeding, no. I'm sure it's because of how I always lick and rub my lips.
  • Powdery finished. 
  • It's true to its claims. It's non-feathering and non-bleeding.
  • Overall, I love it because it doesn't dry out my lips. Plus it's cruelty-free too!
