Review & Swatches: Lime Crime Velvetines

Hey guys and dolls,

Sorry it’s been a while but I’ve been road tripping around California and havent had a chance to blog. But I’ve been at the home base for a few days now and ready to coninuing review some of my most recent purchases. Today I’d thought Id share my thoughts on the Lime Crime Velvetines in Red Velvet and Suedeberry ($16.99). My Europeans can purchase here at cutecosmetics.co.uk and my Americans can purcahse dircertly through here at limecrimemakeup.com

LimeCrime_VelvetinesThe Velvetines come in super cute red and purple packaging with the Lime Crime Logo. The product is housed in a clear matte frosty bottle with a doe foot applicator.

This product is a liquid lipstick formula meant to go on like a gloss but dry to a matte long lasting finish.

LimeCrime_Velvetines_RedVelvetLimeCrime_Velvetines_RedVelvet_SwatchRed Velvet: A matte cherry red. This is just the most perfect and classic in your face fire engine red. With one swipe you can achieve a full fierce red lip but also easily sheered out with your finger for easier wear (remember to clean your finger afterwards or it will remain stained for hours!!). Either way the product lasts for hours, around 5 including drinking and even leaves a stain for a few more hours.

LimeCrime_Velvetines_SuedeberryLimeCrime_Velvetines_Suedeberry_SwatchSuedeberry: A matte bright coral with pink undertones. This one is definitely fun for summer. Again, with one swipe you can achieve full opaque coverage. It can also be sheered out for a more subtle look. As with Red Velvet the longevity on this bad boy is amazing about 5 hours wear plus 2 hours of stain afterwards.

THE VERDICT:

9/10 for the Lime Crime Velvetines. The formula is amazing on these bad boys, creamy and soft. They can be a bit drying but a good base-ting of your favorite lip balm should do the trick. They are super long wearing, extremely pigmented, yet easy to sheer out for a more subtle look. The doe foot applicator makes it easy and mess free. The only down side to this product is the smell. Its reminiscent of burnt butter…it kind of grosses me out but the odor disappears once the product dries after 30 seconds. I’d definitely recommend these babies for any gal or guy out there looking for vibrant, full proof, long wearing matte lip products.

Have you tried the Velvetines? Whats your take on them?
