Same great color in the Velvet formulation
This is a glycerin base formulation. It is of the same concentration of Aqua. It also has a cream base; creamier than the Aqua because of the carrier and manufacturing processes. This formulation works very well with all different types of machines. However, it does work best with the hand method due to it being a thicker consistency. Velvet is a popular choice for those performing the Micro-blading technique do to the fact it stays wet longer due to the glycerin base. Beginners tend to work slow at first and therefor may also prefer the Velvet formulation due to it will stay wet longer. Some techs find it too thick for machine use especially if a single needle is being used. Aqua is NOT a quick dry formula but Velvet will stay wet longer due to the added glycerin. Velvet works well on all skin types; however, it does NOT work as well on oily skin types because of the glycerin base. Due to the added glycerin in Velvet and the fact Li uses an expensive high grade, Kosher, Vegan glycerin…Velvet is more expensive than Aqua.

¹Neutral signifies no substantial temperature bias. However, all color results are dependent upon skin undertones.
Cool and warm designations indicate the basic temperature bias of the pigment’s undertone.
²A temperature designation does not necessarily indicate absolute cool or warm properties; rather that the primary bias leans toward either cool or warm. There are different degrees of cool and warm. Some cool pigments may be only slightly bias to cool or warm,
Some may be very cool or warm. Each technician must work with L/I pigments and the client’s individual skin undertones to determine the appropriate temperature bias of the correct pigment selection for each client.
³Note on color descriptions: The second word describes the most influential Hue; the first word describes that color’s influence.
Example: brown-BLACK signifies the color is mainly black but has a brown influence.
