Today I wanted to talk to you about this gorgeous Lime Crime Velvetine. Riot is describes as 'marsala', a warm rosy brown.
The lime crime velvetines come in 21 different shades. and is a liquid to matte lipstick.
"The texture of a rose petal... in a bottle! Velvetines go on liquid, but dry matte. Touch-proof, transfer-proof & utterly addictive"
The packaging is a thin frosted tube so you can see the product, and a red lid decorated with pink roses. The applicator is quite small, so it is a really good size to apply the product easily.
I have used this for over 4 months now and I really love the look this gives me. The formula is really smooth and you can build it up once it dries. I don't think it dries completely matte and it does transfer.
Although it does wear off after eating/drinking it is only in the centre of the lips so you don't need to do any difficult reapplying throughout the day. It is also drying but that't to be expected, to keep that at bay Id recommend using an defoliator and a good lip balm.
The velvetines are £13.95 and then you have to pay packaging and postage (I bought mine from Love Makeup). This was more of a luxury item for me and I do really think it was worth the money.
The swatch on the right is the velvetine.
This has really quickly turned into one of my favourite lip products, it's very complementary to the colours I usually wear. It glides on smoothly and is easy to reapply. They have a big range of colours and I think I might pick up more of a summer shade nearer the warmer seasons.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and I'll see you next time,
