Lime Crime Velvetines are one of the best liquid lipsticks out there and definitely worth all the money you pay for them!! I own just one shade from the line "SAINT" and the color is BOMB, I tell you, it is one of the most flattering deeper shades that would look awesome irrespective of what skin tone you have!! Above all, it dries to a matte finish and lasts really long! I love how it does not transfer or budge on me!! I haven't really found any dupes for it yet, however, for being the beauty that it is I would love to invest in it all over again! It is a bit drying on my lips, but nothing a good lip balm cannot fix! The packaging is simple yet girly, I love the cap and the floral design over it, makes it look really cute sitting there in my vanity!! Overall, I love this for the color and for the amazing pay off! I'd rate it a 5/5 and would recommend everyone to try this shade out, its so so worth it!! So, what you girls waiting for, give it a grab, I cannot wait to try other shades from the line!

I didn't expect much but i completely fell in love. The packaging is super pretty but you do get less product than the Jeffree Star lipsticks. Very easy to apply with a basic doe foot applicator and dries to matte extremely fast. Once dried these are so smooth on your lips you can completely forget you are wearing lipstick although sometimes the inner part of your lip can get a little dry feeling and get some wear there where it gets wet from your mouth. They do have a weird scent mine are unscented and smell very strongly of play-dough. The colour payoff is amazing these are really pigmented and you don't need to layer them just one layer and you will have amazing lip colour for hours. If you avoid eating these will last much longer some little snacks are okay but anything oily will cause it to come off. They have a great range of shades and I've only got 3 of these so far Cement, Squash and Pumpkin but i will continue to buy more because i am so pleased with the application, pigment and lasting power. Also vegan and cruelty free which is awesome! I rate these 2nd in my top liquid lipsticks behind Jeffree Star.
I'm a big fan of Lime Crime, I honestly own the whole range of the Velvetines Matte Liquid Lipstick! You name the shade, I have them all. They have a sale going on too in their website! They have a crazy range of colours, omg, guys crazy colours! I use them as both lipsticks and eyeshadow! Super duper pigmented & totally matte! They don't dry out the lips at all!

I had purchased the shade from this range called Suedeberry as it was deemed to be a dupe of Mac's Toxic tale which I had missed as it was limited edition and I wanted badly.I had very high hopes from this lipstick which soon shattered the moment I applied it on.The lipstick was very streaky with thin runny consistency and it was very difficult to get an even layer from it even after 3-4 swipes after which it stared getting uncomfortable on the lips.So I had to take it off immediately.I next exfoliated my lips followed by lip balm then reapplied it,this time it was lesser problematic but still was a little streaky.I compared the colour with Mac's Toxic tale(which was re-released and this time I purchased it) and I found it to be a lot darker than Toxic tale.So it's definitely not a dupe!
I had purchased the shade Shroom from this range and I find it to be a very warm toned terracotta brown with strong mustardy undertones.It I see quite an unusual shade in the market to find and it was the very reason I bought it and I am totally in love with the colour as it complements my skin's warm undertones very well.It has thin runny kind of consistency in the beginning when you apply it but soon settles to a matte finish whichever stays easily on for 4-5 hours with eating and drinking but oily food can cause problem with the staying power of these.Reapplication is very easy as they don't crumble or chip off if another layer isn't applied on the previous layer.A very different shade of brown.
All Lime Crime products have very unique packaging. These Velvetines liquid lipsticks come in a frosted plastic tube with a doe-foot applicator. I love the design of roses on the cap which gives it such a girly appeal. The applicator is a bit small, but it is precise. I personally do not feel any difficulty with application since I am quite familiar with liquid lipsticks. But, for beginners, it might take some practice as mistakes can be a bit difficult to clean as the lipstick does set quickly.
Once it dries, it is completely budgeproof , smudgeproof and kissproof. It does not bleed at all. It works best at the thinnest layer, hence if you put it too thick, it will feel drying and transfer too.
FADED-The shade, “Faded”, is a gorgeous cool toned faded purple-mauve color. It is a very unique shade and complements cool toned makeup really well. Even though this shade is very different, it will still look flattering on most skin tones.
POLLY- “Polly” is a purple-tinged pink, I think it’s a fairly unique shade, not that there aren’t purple-pinks in the market. There definitely are, but still, this one is this beautiful balance of pink and purple which brightens, is super easy on the eye, and is extremely flattering. I really do like this one! I think the shade would work across the spectrum of skin tones. It would probably lean more purple on darker skin tones.
It is available on there website for $20 with shipping charges extra.
i have the colour Cashmere from the range and it is very greyed brown . It is quite runny and thin consistency lipstick but settles to a matte finish after 3-4 minutes.It is comfortable,non drying on the lips and lasts a good 5-6 hours,but oily food can take it off from the center of the lips.It is easy to reapply and has a sweet smell too
