Review // Lime Crime Velvetines

For the last year I've seen randomly on the Tube and Internet the craze that's surrounded these lippies from Lime Crime. It wasn't until I found a reviewer that was wearing a deep, matte red from the company that I finally decided to go on ahead and give em a try! 

On their website, Lime Crime is totally a trippy, yet beautiful place. LOL. Laced with puffy clouds and unicorns, it was fun navigating around the site. The Velvetines come in over 15 color selections and I decided I was going to swoop up two: "Wicked" (the deep red I'd been lusting about) and "Trouble" (a new color, sort of a khaki green). 

 

Once receiving my order, the thing that stuck out the most was the packaging. So friggin cute! And finally to the actual lippies. 

The staying power of the Velvetines lived up to the hype. I had to legit use a makeup remover and slight prayer to get it completely off. I loved the color payoff of "Wicked" and I definitely see it as a staple in my stash. "Trouble" however did not compliment my skin tone. I still appreciate the color, but it'll be in my kit to use when I have the right face to pul it off.

All in all, very impressed with the quality of Lime Crime and these colors!
