Lime Crime Velvetines

Although my love for liquid lipsticks has intensified over the past year, dabbling in Sephora Cream Lip Stains, OCC Lip Tars, Hourglass and most recently Too Faced, it was Lime Crime who first turned my attention to liquid lacquers, and made me fall in love with the dreamy formula and highly pigmented lip colour liquid lipsticks provide.

I'm a big, big fan of Lime Crime. A cruelty free vegan brand with some of the boldest and most daring shades I've ever come across, and packaging which pretty much beats every other brand out there for it's unique, playful and utterly gorgeous approach to makeup, Lime Crime is a pretty awesome brand. Impossibly difficult to source in the UK, even more so now they're pulling stock from British retailers (sob), but awesome all the same.

There's quite a lot of hype around the Velvetines range, and rightly so; although I love pretty much every brand of liquid lipsticks I have in my stash, there's nothing that quite compares to Lime Crime. First of, the packaging. Frosted circular tubes with tops that are perfectly designed to be bold, feminine and fun at the same time, with doe-foot applicators that make application an absolute breeze. 

There's 10 shades available in the Velvetines range, including everyday nudes and classic pinks and reds, to bold and bright purples and deep, sultry berry shades. I've had my eye on Pansy and Utopia for a while, but they're unavailable at the current UK stockists. I'm really hoping Lime Crime re-think pulling their products from UK stockists, because I need more Lime Crime in my life!

The formula for the Velvetines range is pretty much the most perfect formula you could ever wish for in a liquid lipstick. Just the right consistency, they glide on effortlessly and pretty quickly set to a perfect and completely matte finish. The colour pay-off is intense; Lime Crime go all the way when it comes to opaque and highly pigmented shades, with longevity that makes these beauties last from morning to night with no need to reapply!

I have three shades in my beauty stash; Red Velvet which is a beautiful classic red, Pink Velvet which is a lovely pink that's not too bright but bold enough for a beautiful impact, and Suedeberry, the most perfect coral. 

Have you tried the Lime Crime Velvetines range yet? What's your favourite brand for liquid lacquers?

  1. I am so dying to try these out! Been searching everywhere for one. I found a liquid lipstick from Sleek that is meant to be a dupe for Utopia, it's the matte me liquid lipstick in Fandango Purple that I have tried :)
    Great post, you've got me drooling over these again lol!

  2. I haven't tried these yet, though they have been on my wish list for awhile! I agree LimeCrime always delivers bold, highly pigmented shades.. so far, Kat Von D's liquid lipsticks are my favorite! :)

    1. I don't think Sephora sell Lime Crime, do they? xo

  13. I had no idea Lime Crime were vegan, I've never tried any of their stuff but as I'm trying to go vegan I think I'll give them a go. I'm not generally a fan of liquid lipsticks at all but as these are matte, they look right up my street.
    I love all three of the shades you've chosen, I think Suedeberry is my favourite.

    If Lime Crime is being pulled from UK stockists, where would you order them from? Do you have to order it from the US?

    1. Unfortunately, one they're pulled out of the UK I don't think I'll be having any more Lime Crime in my life. I wouldn't order direct from their website, though, as it's come out recently they don't have proper security on their site - it's been hacked and thousands of customers who have ordered from there have ended up with fraudulent activity on their accounts and thousands of $ being taken out! So definitely wouldn't recommend ordering from their website unfortunately xo

  14. Omg! I thought it was weird how I could hardly find any of it on the UK Stockists I used to use anymore. Shame, as I was planning on buying Salem, Riot and Cashmere. :((((((((

    I have Black Velvet and it is a thing of beauty. I love the way they feel when on!

    1. It's not just UK sellers by the looks of things - they've pulled from Australian sellers too! xo
