Lime Crime Velvetines in Suedeberry - Review, Photos, Swatches

I've heard and read a lot about Lime Crime. I was supposed to get some of their opaque lipsticks years ago, but upon reading the review of my ultimate favorite beauty blogger, I passed. Lately I've been seeing a lot of ladies raving about their Velvetines.

Velvetines are liquid lipstick; creamy when applied, dries out matte. It's almost similar to NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, but the former's consistency is less creamy. As a beauty enthusiast and blogger, I had to try them. I have Red Velvet (review to be posted), and Suedeberry.

Lime Crime Velvetines in Suedeberry is a coral / orange type of red. It has warm undertones, and looks a little more girly as compared to red velvet (which looks more foxy). This is a brighter, friendlier type of red, perfect for daytime. 

Opacity is okay. Just like any other liquid lipsticks that I've used, I had to apply 2 coats to be able to achieve my type of opacity. 

It's pretty long wearing since it's in matte finish. But it's the type of matte that's not the most comfortable. I think you can tell even in my photos since the lines and crevices on my lips are pretty apparent. If you think the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is drying, Velvetines is a notch or 2 more drying.

It has a distinct sweet taste and smell, like a dessert. It actually reminds me of a cupcake!

PROS: it's the type of red that's a little more friendly, bright and perfect for daytime, it has decent hours of wear, it has a cupcake-y scent and taste

CONS: opacity is just okay, lip products with wands is not the most hygienic, a little pricey, hard to find


VERDICT:

 I will definitely repurchase!

    1. I agree! But it's a but fragile since the tube is made of glass. And it's more of a liquid lipstick than lipglosee :) thank you!

  3. I love Lime Crime products' packaging. It's so unique and the designs are so intricate. This one looks promising but since it's drying, I think it will not work for my severely dry lips. Have you tried their lipsticks? Do they have lippy that's moisturizing?

    1. I haven't tried their lipsticks yet. But I'm planning to. :) The only "moisturizing" lipstick that I've ever used was Avon's Vitalicious lipsticks. >.< I usually go for matte ones kasi eh. Will let you know when I get Geradium. Haha! Thanks, Gen-zel! Mwah!
