Liquid Lipstick | Lime Crime Matte Velvetine Review

I must admit Liquid lipsticks have taken over the makeup world. From drugstore to luxury, every color brand has there own liquid lipstick. I have tried NUMEROUS versions and have been disappointed with the results on me. I feel like 5 minutes after I apply a liquid lipstick, I want to immediately remove it because my lips are either burning or my lips look 100 years old. However, I continue on this liquid lipstick journey.

For the first time, I have found one that I can wear for at least 4 hours without any transfer or severe dryness. *Insert angels singing* Lime Crime Matte Velvetines has become the new IT product for my lips. With 40 shades to choose from, I thought I would go outside my comfort zone and pick up a darker more moody color, Saint. (FYI, this cranberry shade makes your teeth look very white.)

Process

I first apply a lip balm and blot it off with a tissue. I find that doing this helps decrease exaggerated lines on my lips. No matter if my lips are dry or not, I always do this step. I apply Saint directly onto my lips with the doe foot applicator. However, if you have a lip brush, this would be greatly helpful to make the edges of your lips more precise with color.

Packaging

This product has a very typical lip gloss or liquid lipstick packaging. The doe foot applicator is small enough to apply product to the corners of your lips. Like I said earlier, if you do have a small lip brush you can use this for application as well. For myself, I find using the doe foot is simpler for me.

Formula

Comparing this to other popular liquid lipsticks, (Anastasia Beverly Hills,ย Kat Von D, Huda Beauty), I found this formula had more of a watery consistency. What this means to me is that a little product will go a long way and you do not need to keep dipping the wand and reapplying. I have also found that while this product does dry down it does not dry out. Obviously it isn’t as moisturizing as a lipgloss or balm, however, it doesn’t my the skin on my lips peel *cringe*.

I hope you enjoyed my little liquid lipstick review (and slight rant).

Please check out Lime Crime Matte Velvetines and let me know what you think!

  1. Love this! I DESPISE dry liquid lipsticks. I tend to stick with satin finish long wear lipsticks. I’ve never tried Lime Crime before but Vanessa has and loves them. I’ll have to pick one up and try for myself!!

    1. Yes, I was shocked that I liked this so much. It is a major improvement from Anastasia or Kat Von D. Please let me know which one you pick up! Lime Crime now has a new collection of Plushies that are long wearing that I will be trying out next!
