Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Hi all,

 

Wondering if the Lisa Eldridge lipsticks are worth hunting down? Thoughts?

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom So I played with Decade tonight.  And, I like it...but...  There is definitely a but.  As I feel like increasingly palettes are not beginner friendly, Decade requires real work.  

The shade is pretty.  Not too brown or harsh - on me.  The texture is like a powdery silicony balm.  I also ordered the three MUFE lip pencils Lisa mentioned in her video and let's start with that.  Having a good pencil to define your lips first makes this shade perform much better.  Then, it does apply better blotted on or smoothed with a finger to warm up the oils if applied from the bullet (hence the need for defining and outlining the lips first).

If I go through these steps, the shade really is a lovely crushed velvet shade which plumps up my lips.  If I try to apply it straight from the bullet, without softening the formula with the warmth from my fingers, it does not perform nearly as well.

Hope that helps.  I like the shade but think it is very high maintenance.

I have not yet tried other shades.  Will get to them.

And, I will mention, on my lips Decade does not feel like lipstick.  It is more like a lip powder (if anyone knows what those are) and is very light.  I get almost no transfer.  Interestingly, no one has commented on that in the videos I have seen.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

I agree with you on the texture of Decade @meganlisa . It reminds me of the Mac lip powder kiss formula also. The other older shades feel heavier to me compared to the new. Even Myth is a bit lighter. Didn’t feel like a balm to me however vs more drying. Maybe your lip pencil helped with that feel. Yea if so! Did it really feel plumping after awhile? I never noticed they at all if so. Lol. My lips are probably older and more dry!😫😭

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom Plumping, yes.  These are a little dry and powdery.  I see the "velvet" in them.  I like the 2 I have tried so far (see my thoughts on Fawn below) but can see that they aren't for everyone and can be a little high maintenance.  They can be patted on and then really don't look like i am wearing lipstick.  Kind of cool.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Yea I’m so glad they are working out well for you @meganlisa ! I bet Fawn looks good on you. I think it’s just hit or miss depending on color how they turn out. I really prefer a blurry easy lip look vs having to use a liner but I’ll be giving it a go if I am trying to salvage using Decade! I dearly love LE and her lipsticks, and the velvety feel and look on the reds is so pretty thankfully! 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

As always Great info and great review @meganlisa 

I just knew you would be on this thread 😉

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@PaletteAddict99 All over this thread.  Wearing Fawn this morning and I love it (not everyone will!).  Super subtle, powdery, velvety and surprisingly a little more transfer proof than Decade - but still not nearly as much as most lipstick. A very soft color, like angel lips in my imagination.  And it has enough warm brown and pink to not wash me out.  These definitely work better with a lip pencil.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

I’m glad you like it @meganlisa .  I played with it a bit more tonight doing all you mention but not the liner. I’ll try that too. I did warm it up first and also tried blotting it also. I can make Midnight work much easier but Decade just doesn’t suit me nor can I get it to not be patchy no matter what. Maybe a liner will help me but it may be it just isn’t good. I did get a great new VB liner  but it’s prob too cool for it. I’ll try another. The other thing I don’t love is the way it sits on the lip looking so dry and showing lines within lip. And I see it on a lot of others’ pics online also. Must just depend on people’s tolerance levels. Lol. I’m just not a fan of my lips looking that dry.  I’ll just try to sell it I think and enjoy her other ones that I do like. Just a shame as Decade was really the one I looked so forward to besides Myth which I adore. It does look good on others so that’s good.  I do feel like tho that the formula is a little different , more dry than first and second releases. Must be more tricky for these deeper shades. I can get a better similar effect with the new Guerlain lip and new Chanel lip inks etc so that’s good! I prob just need cooler shades as well so these work better. And Myth. Thanks for your suggestions! I will try lip pencil for fun before I give up on it! 🤗🥰

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom, this is so disappointing. I watched a YT video last night by Allison Chase who tried on 3 LE lipsticks, including Decade. I think it looked best when blotted on lightly vs. applying for full pigmentation. I was hoping that Midnight would be a gorgeous shade for us. Sadly, I won't see mine until Sunday as I'm out of town. I got the Soft Velvet and the Blue Velvet collections (so Myth and Midnight will be in my order). I'm glad you like Myth, at least! 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

😕 @TraceyEB . I’ll look for her video. I did try that with Midnight also, helps but its still quite dull purple and just not ideal. Decade is just plain horrible on me. Lol. Am sure others can do it but not me. And so patchy. Worst of bunch sadly. Will be good to hear what you think. You’re usually not as extreme as I am on my thoughts. lol 😆 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom, You should definitely return the ones you don't like and give Lisa E. feedback on them. I ordered Naya, a brown from Natasha Denons that didn't have any red in it, and it looks horrible on me. It's a milk chocolate shade that gathers in the lip lines and is patchy when reapplying. I tried mixing it with a bright orange but have decided to give it away. Definitely return Decade. Maybe Midnight would look better with a gloss over it...

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Yup I think I’ll have to @TraceyEB though I wonder return shipping ! And I got the darling little bag also. Hmm 😕

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom, hmmm indeed. You could call customer service to see what your options are or maybe post to Sephora's trade group.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Thanks @TraceyEB I am going to do just that. ☺️Thanks for great idea to post on trade group also. Anybody else can PM me too! 🤗🥰 ( oops can I say that on here ?! Delete delete if not! 🙊🙉🙈). 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom I got a bunch.  Watched them go out of stock with the reds then the pinks because I couldn't decide.  I got all but Myth yesterday - Myth was shipped separately and seems to have taken a side trip to another part of the country before coming to my state (??? according to the tracking information....).

I had a work event last night and got home late so didn't take a look.  Meant to grab one on my way out - even wore neutral makeup so which one didn't matter. Forgot...

I am really not thrilled with the Midnight shade based on your swatches.  So much wrong with it (hard color to wear for most, patchy, stiff looking).  Decade I would need to see on but the formula does seem to have issues. Sorry to hear that you are disappointed.  She did so well with releases one and two.  Tonight I will actually look at mine and tell you my thoughts.  When Myth returns from its vacation (if it isn't really just lost) I will let you know my thoughts on that one as well. 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Yup @meganlisa you said it, the formula on the dark shades is not good. I hope Myth has only been on a mini holiday and shows up asap because I know you’ll like that one. And I’m sure any other red or pinks .☺️Will be good to hear your thoughts so I won’t think I’m too crazy. ( too...lol ) 🤗🥰

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom Can you believe I haven't even had time to take a look yet. Crazy.  Lisa E. did a video about making dark shades more wearable.  Maybe with this formula, that is what needs to be done (blot them on).

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Yup @meganlisa it probably is tho I did try that and I’m still open to keep trying anything!   @TraceyEB also mentioned this so I’ll look now thank you guys! 🥰 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Sunnysmom thx for posting.  Sorry to hear that.  I want Myth and Skyscraper Rose but i'm too slow and Myth sold out.  Well i have to wait until next batch then.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@blackkitty2014, Lisa is restocking now only once a year, so any shades not posted will be available this time next year.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Hope they come back into stock for you @blackkitty2014 ! Those you will love :). Want these others of mine?! 🤣😕
