Lime Crime Velvetine In Wicked

Last week, I finally managed to get my hands on Lime Crime’s Velvetine in the shade ‘Wicked‘ and I only regret not picking it up sooner. It looks a lot lighter in the photo but this shade is actually a very dark red and can be intensified by adding more layers on.

The staying power is very impressive, lasting up to 4 hours without reapplying. Although it fades really slowly, it does fade patchy but it really isn’t too bad and seems hard to avoid with a lot of darker lip colours. It’s also not the best if you have dry lips or dry patches so if possible, exfoliate or prep your lips beforehand. It is insanely pigmented – a little goes a looong way. It photographs beautifully so if you’re looking for a red for a special event, I’d definitely recommend this. It dries completely matte around a minute after applying and does not transfer whatsoever!

When it comes to removal, I actually thought it would take a lot of effort but I used a makeup wipe to remove it and after a few good swipes it came off! If you couldn’t tell already I’m completely in love.

  • Wow- this colour is stunning! Definitely going to be asking for this for christmas, it's such a perfect winter shade! xx

  • This looks gorgeous on you! May I ask where you purchased it? I've had a look in my local Gorgeous Cosmetics but they're always out of stock.

  • Such a gorgeous deep red! I really love the look of the Velvetines and they sound amazing, though I'm not sure if I love the idea of them wearing off patchily. Still though, the colours would be totally worth it!

  • I've never seen this brand before but I love that lip colour on you. Since it's started feeling more like autumn I've been reaching for my deep reds rather than the corals I was wearing all summer.
    I love the matte finish and it's surprising to hear it comes off easily, that's something I really need in a lipstick, I hate having to spend ages taking off my make up when Im tired at the end of the day!

  • I've been wanting to try this, I've seen it everywhere over the blogosphere at the moment! Loovvee the shade of yours!
