Product Review: Lime Crime Velvetines

I received these Lime Crime lip colors a over a month ago but I haven’t worn it. I swatched it when I first got it and loved it, I used it on a few of my clients and loved how it looked but I still hadn’t tried them. About two weeks ago I decided well I can’t let these lippies stand so I decided to try them.

Swatches of the Lime Crime Velvetines

When I first put it on it felt really glossy on my lips, and I thought well aren’t these suppose to be matte? After about ten minutes it turned matte and looked amazing! I loved the pigmentation and how matte it is. Yes it is a bit pricey but it looks really good so why not splurge? Another great thing I discovered when wearing this was how long it stays, you could eat a whole steak and sip mocktails the entire night and it would just stay as it is! If you happen to fall off to sleep, you will wake up with it looking exactly the same as how it was when you just put it (not that I fell asleep with it). A facial wipe doesn’t just remove the lip color, you will need makeup remover and a lot of cotton swabs. I always like my lips to be moisturized, it doesn’t have to be the whole bottle of Vaseline but I do like it to be moisturized. The glitch on the Lime Crimes is that after a few hours your lips don’t feel as moisturized, and might actually feel dry even though the pigmentation is amazing. I put a bit of Vaseline just to get a bit of moisture and I was good to go. Apart from that little glitch, I do still think its amazing.

Verdict: 3.5/5 because of the small glitch apart from that its worth the purchase.

It’s a bit pricey if you mostly buy drugstore products, but it doesn’t cost as much as other high-end products. Its very matte, the colors are amazing; they are also extremely pigmented and long lasting. Are there better lippies out there? There’s always a better one, but for the price you getting a really good lip product.Worth the splurge? Definitely
