Lime Crime Velvetines in Cashmere

Friday, 20 February 2015

Lime Crime Velvetines in Cashmere is the only Velvetines I'm keen on trying... (and Riot, but it's not out yet!) I would love to have Wicked too, but only if someone gives it to me as a gift as they are pretty expensive :p



If you did not know, Lime Crime Velvetines are matte liquid lipsticks. They are creamy when they go on but after 30 seconds turn completely matte. Needless to say, you need to prep your lips really well before you wear something of this texture, because they fill the crevices of your lips and accentuate the lines. They are so similar with Sephora Cream Lip Stains but this one feels a little bit more sticky. Even the scent is very similar. After a while you don't feel like you are wearing anything at all which makes them comfortable. Velvetines are incredibly long lasting so oil make up remover would come in handy. (edit: reapplying after a meal may be necessary)

Lime Crime describes Cashmere as a greige, aka grey-beige. This colour looks different on everyone. You cannot really tell how it would look on you until you actually try it out. I bought it only because of the colour. It is like nothing I have ever seen. I looked for swatches online and it looks gorgeous even on darker skin tones, although I find it looks best on light to very pale skin. At first I was disappointed with how it looked on me, maybe it has something to do with my yellow undertones or because it is very unique and I was not used to it. It definitely took a while for me to find a makeup look that suits this lip colour, and I haven't found enough courage to actually wear this out (I have spent hours wearing this in my house haha), but it's definitely growing on me. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Is it wearable? If you have light to pale skin I think it would look great as an everyday colour, although it is unusual!

You can only buy these online. So if you are looking for something similar in texture and wear but in different colours check out the local Sephora, theirs have a lower price as well.

Much love.
