Limecrime Velveltines- Liquid matte lipsticks swatches on black dark sin
Just recently, I found myself on the Limecrime website screening through their different products and I immediately got attached to these velveltines liquid lipsticks from them. I just had to get some for myself to try out. I wanted to use this lipstick for a while before I come with a full length review on what I think about them. These are the three lipsticks that I got. It's Trouble, Cashmere and Salem. What I like about limecrime is the unique colors they offer. I only got three of the lipsticks to try with. And i made sure I got odd colors because that always defines the quality of a good brand.
NOTE: The lipstick swatches are applied without lipliners to complement them.
Packaging: These liquid lipsticks comes in very cute and simple packaging. The content itself is in a frosted plastic tube with an applicator. I love the way the applicator is being designed. It picks up just the right amount of products needed.
Price: At $20 a tube, or less if you get it on a sale, this lipstick is worth the money. To ship to Sweden cost me around $6 and which was not too bad. It stated on my order confirmation that I wouldn't be able to track my products once it's outside the USA but I could do that even after it left the USA. Shipping took 7 days.
Formula: The velveltines are quite thinner in consistency than my other liquid lipsticks. Hence, the feeling of nothing on your lips. This for some people is a good thing, others might struggle with adapting to that since it'd mostly require you to put one or two more coats. They apply liquid and dry to a matte finish just like other liquid lipsticks and I love the fact that it dries quickly. They are liquid mattes so they don't feel moisturizing but it's bearable. These liquid lipsticks are quite long lasting but their longetivity depreciates after eating and you most definitely will feel a tolerable bit of dryness at the corners of your lips. They stay on for up to 6 hours without eating but if I do eat, it'll only last 3 hours.
I also love the fact that they do not transfer but like i said if you do eat or drink with a straw, it'll wear off a bit.
Smell: They all definitely have this vanilla smell and which tends to be stronger in some of the lipsticks than the other. When applying it, it might feel a little bit overwhelming but the smells goes away after the lipstick is dry.
To do: I would recommend you to always start off by applying a lip balm before putting these on. Also make sure to take care of your lips by gently exfoliating as regularly as needed.
Finally, I would recommend these lipsticks to you as they do meet my requirements. But be sure to put all the pros and cons I have left in this post while deciding to purchase these lipsticks.
