Velvet 59 in a Nutshell

Velvet 59 is a new-to-me beauty brand founded by young beauty aficionado, Paris Manning. Her line was inspired by her love of vintage glamour (we share some of the same favorite silver screen starlets it seems), her worldwide travels and a desire to remain as eco-conscious as possible. Velvet 59 is even vegan, paraben-free and gluten-free!

While the line is fairly small, it consists of an enticing variety of lipsticks, lip glosses, liquid lipsticks, shadows, complexion products and mascara. The colors are fresh and trendy and the packaging is thoughtfully unique.

Prices are around the mid-high range for beauty.

The entire line can be viewed and purchased at Velvet59.com

Velvet 59 was lovely enough to send along a great selection of their products, which I'm currently working on swatching. Be patient with me, between a flood of new incoming products and my youngest having some medical things going on it's a bit slower than usual. In the meantime, take a peek!
