REVIEW: VELY VELY Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick (Orange Butter)

I was recently introduced to the beauty brand Vely Vely by Imvely last time when I tried the No.19 Red Rouge Lipstick (review HERE) and instantly fell in love with the brand! I've literally been obsessed and wanted to try even more, but it's still a relatively new brand and hard to get here in the United States. Luckily, I was sent a few products from the brand to test out thanks to BNT News and I am so stoked to introduce to you guys these fun products~ :D 

Today, I'll be reviewing the Vely Vely Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick in Orange Butter! The Vely Vely Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick comes in 6 vivid and gorgeous shades!

VELY VELY SLIDING BUTTER CRAYON LIPSTICK

Like most of Vely Vely cosmetic products, the Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick comes in a unique triangular, baby pink box with a cool black zigzag print on the side. I absolutely adore the fun packaging Vely Vely products always has because it's never the boring traditional square or rectangular boxes! The Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick itself is a long, black cylindrical crayon stick with the same fun black and pink zigzag print along the center.


The Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick is actually double-sided! Both ends can be pulled off revealing one end which is the actual crayon lipstick, while the other end houses a soft rounded cushion sponge. The sponge tip can be used to blend out the crayon lipstick for a more smooth and even finish. It can also be used achieve a natural smudging effect, or to blend the lipstick when trying to achieve a gradient lip, or a two-toned ombre look!

I actually really prefer crayon-type products above all else because of their ease of use! The Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick is no different and is a piece of cake to use and control even for a beginner. The crayon is about the size of a jumbo pencil, like the ones we used in Kindergarten when we were kids and still learning how to write! It fits perfectly into the hands of most, if not all, sizes and is easy to get a grip on. Plus, it's a breeze to maneuver when tracing your lips!

At first glance, I was really surprised at how bright and vivid, Orange Butter is -- It looked almost like a neon orange highlighter! This shade is definitely bold and not for the faint of heart. It's more of a fiery orange when initially applied, and once blended out with the sponge tip, it transforms into a soft orange hue with a semi-matte finish.


I have a love/hate relationship with the texture of this lipstick. What I love is that it is made with a silicon complex that fills every lip crease and fine lip lines, so you get a very even application. All you need is one swipe over the lips, and they're fully coated with opaque color. The texture is ultra creamy, hence the name "Butter",  and also moisturizing on the lips despite its semi-matte finish. It has a unique water-holding system that locks in moisture and keeps your lips hydrated. However, the creaminess of the lipstick is a little too much and therefore causes it to cling to my dry patches, even when I use lip balm underneath it. I highly advise that you use a lip scrub before using this product in order to exfoliate away the dead skin cells and allow for a smooth application!

The formula is highly pigmented and I mean it's super intense! Plus, the color payoff is amazing -- you get long-lasting color that doesn't easily wipe off or transfer easily. However, I dislike how the lipstick has an un-refillable cushion sponge. :( I love how it really blends out the product well, but I wish there were replacement tips for hygienic reasons. The cushion sponge is used so close to your mouth and can get a lot of product build-up which can get really dirty and it's impossible to clean!



FINAL THOUGHTS?

I absolutely adore the Vely Vely Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick! The lipstick is double-ended with the lipstick on one end and a cushion sponge on the other that's meant to smudge out the lipstick for a natural blended look. The formula is as creamy as butter and evenly hugs the lips with a moisturizing coat. The lipstick doesn't emphasize my fine lines and it doesn't dry out my lips despite the semi-matte finish, but I do recommend that you exfoliate before using this product because it tends to cling to dry patches of skin. I do wish, however, that the Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick came with replaceable tips for the cushion sponge since it gets dirty easily and is impossible to clean well. Not to mention, Orange Butter is such a bold and bright shade that it's not for the faint of heart! I definitely recommend this lipstick shade for those that want to make a statement or rock a bold lip. ;)


The Vely Vely Sliding Butter Crayon Lipstick retails for $18 and is available at Imvely.com, HERE!
