Lime Crime Velvetine in Pink Velvet | Review & Swatches

How gloomy is our usual sunny Southern California right now? Let's kick it up a notch shall we? There's no better time to introduce to you a beautiful, long wearing pink liquid lipstick that will brighten any mood!

Pink Velvet is the newest addition to Lime Crime's Liquid Lipstick Collection. It runs alongside Suede Berry and Red Velvet that I reviewed HERE. I wrote about how long lasting Red Velvet was and Pink Velvet is no different.

The packaging is nothing out of the ordinary, however they did change the look of the applicator to roses instead of its usual swirl. Not sure if it's going to be permanent but nevertheless it's very cute and very functional. It comes with a doe foot applicator -- nothing special, but with this type you need to be careful in how you apply it around your lips.

See what I mean by being careful with the applicator? It is not precise around my lips at all! Pink Velvet is a very hot pink that would match perfectly across different skin tones. It doesn't lean too cool or too warm that one might find difficult to wear. It goes on like a lipgloss at first and within seconds it dries to a matte finish. The reason why I said to be very careful in application because once it dries... it DOES NOT budge. It is very long lasting, opaque, and it did not hydrate my lips nor severely dried it out. I suggest if you have flaky lips to exfoliate first and add a good amount of lip balm for hydration.  Another suggestion: Don't try to just wipe off the product with a napkin because it will leave your lips raw and dry. Since it's so long wearing and matte, you may need a baby wipe, makeup wipe or even a makeup remover to successfully take this all off... I guess that's a good thing right?

This liquid lipstick can be found and bought on their website (Google: Lime Crime Cosmetics) However, I bought this on Amazon for $20.00. 

Have you tried any Velvetine's? Which one is your favorite?

Until Next Time! :)
