Hi sweetheart! How are you today? I`m not a huge fan of glossy and glittery lipsticks and lip glosses. I prefer to use matte finishes on a daily basis, even though matte lipstick is complicated to maintain. That`s why in my first summer blog post I`m going to review and talk about two gorgeous matte liquid lipsticks Velvetines by Lime Crime. I`ve stumbled across these lippies while purchasing `Opals` - a highlighting palette made for unicorns and decided to try them out and share my thought with you.

Lime Crime is vegan and cruelty free makeup brand and it is famous for its cute and fun packages. Velvetines come in a classic lip gloss packaging - frosty glass tube with a spongy applicator inside. The applicator is small and dome shaped, for an easy and precised application of a product. Velvetines by Lime Crime are a matte liquid lipsticks and they dry to a flat matte finish. This finish is tend to emphasize fine lines and wrinkles, so I recommend to apply Velvetines on a well moisturized and polished lips. They have a pleasant creamy consistency, more on a runny side. It is very easy to apply and work with the texture, though if you find it hard to control you can always use a synthetic lip brush for application.

I purchased two amazing shades - `Rave` and `Cashmere`. Rave is a bright magenta shade, described as `electric lavender`, but Cashmere is definitely my favorite. It is a very soft and `muted` purple brown shade and it reminds me of a very dull, rainy day. It doesn`t look so amazing on my picture, but believe me it is a very beautiful and unique color. Both shades have a very yummy scent of vanilla chocolate. Once these lippies dry , they have the softest and smoothest texture. Vevetines are smudge proof, and you can wear them all day long with no worries and touch ups!

Overall, I loved Lime Crime`s Velvetines! They are the most resistance and unique lipsticks I ever owned. The whole collection is incredible, there are so many gorgeous shades, starting from a soft nudes for an everyday makeup and finishing with black velvet shades for a crazy night occasions. I enjoyed the smooth application, incredible color pay off and the extremely opaque formula. Velvetines is a dream of a lipstick junkie and I`m so excited to try more colors from this collection.

Have you tried Lime Crime`s Velvetines?

Lots of love,
Liz
