After finding Lime Crime on Instagram I became quickly obsessed with these cult lip products. Doe Deere, owner and face of Lime Crime, has some gorgeous shades in her Velvetine ($20) line, and I want to share the ones I own with you.
Just a quick description of these lipsticks. Each one is basically straight pigment meaning that what you see is what you get. They are about as vibrant and pigmented as a sharpie on white paper would be. They go on in a liquid state which sets up your lips for insane perfection and a velvet look once dried. As they dry they become completely matte. So matte and long-lasting that I could wear them all day and only have to touch up the very center of my lips when I eat. Is it magic? I think so! I've never worn a lipstick and had it last as long and look as beautiful as the Velvetines!
Top swatch shows it while its still drying.

Black Velvet, Utopia, Pink Velvet, Suede-berry, Wicked, Salem. ( I have Red Velvet but for some reason it did'nt get swatched...lol oops!)
Top picture shows me trying to rub it off...with minor alteration to the lipstick!
Bottom shows after rubbing with MACs face wipes...still holding on.
Some times all it takes is one swatch and its love at first sight! This soft but touch lipstick is the meaning of long-lasting and gorgeous! I can't wait to se the new colors Cashmere and Pansy soon! If you find them sold out on her website, you can also find them at the Urban Outfitters stores and on their website! I'll do a video collection on them and my purple tube lipsticks when I do! What Lime Crime colors do you own?
