Testing and Review: Lime Crime Velvetines

Hey Beauties,

At the moment there is the trend of matte and velvet lips which is quite the opposite of the normal glossy and juicy lip. A few weeks ago I discovered the Lime Crime Velvetines which is a liquid lipstick which has a very matte and velvet finish. I ordered it from ebay from the seller makeupemporium1. 


I received it a couple of days ago and decided to test it over a 9 hour period, to check how long it lasts:

First impression as soon as I opened the package was, that I really like the packaging and the tube itself. As one can notice from the photo below, it is not clear plastic like all the other lip products, but it has a sanded finish to make it seem velvety. Also, the box itself has instructions on the inside that tells you how to apply it and how to take it off properly, since it stains quite a lot. 

Lime Crime Velvetines: Red Velvet


I first applied the product around 10.00am without applying any lip liner. It is liquid type of product, if not applying it carefully it can become quite messy. After a few seconds it settles to velvet finish. There is no risk of it bleeding when compared to other lip products.

10.00am application
At around 1.00pm it was lunch time, so I ate and drank, which resulted in some of the product fading. So it has to be reapplied after eating a meal. 

1.00pm lunch time
 At about 7.00pm it was almost all faded, however my lips still had that slight tint to them.

As a conclusion, one would need to obviously reapply it during the day. However, it does has a longer span of time then other lip products. I like it because it is a unique product which not many brands produce, and also the color is perfect. The only disadvantage it has is that it is quite expensive, especially for those, including myself, if it needs to be shipped in Europe. That is why I chose ebay, to save some of the shipping costs ;)

That is all for today,

Hope you found this review to your liking,

Let me know what you think about this product, if you tried it,

Until next time,

Take Care,
