For the longest of time, no exaggeration here I promise you! I have wanted to get my little beauty mitts on some Lime Crime lip products and guys that moment has finally happened. From the minute I saw my favourite beauty gurus wearing lip products that came wrapped up in gorgeous packaging I was obsessed; I just knew they were going to be something that I loved whenever I got the actual chance to try them out.
Now if I had an endless amount of spending money then I probably would have bought everything there and then on the Lime Crime website. Unfortunately thats the kind of things dreams are made of and I had to limit myself to just two things when placing my order, I really can't afford to go wild now, especially with baby sparkle on its way. As matte lipsticks have to be my favourite kind of finish I decided to pick up two of the Lime Crime Valentines in the shades Faded and Wicked. Faded is one of these really pretty nude shades, but it has a slight hint of purple running through it which makes it really different to any other nude shade I own. Wicked on the other hand is one of my favourite lipstick shades, it's a deep vampy red, making it perfect for this time of year. Both shades look amazing on.
As for the actual product, again I'm in love. Like I said, I love lipsticks that have a matte finish so the Velvetines are right up my street. When I first apply them they actually feel really wet and glossy but within a matter of seconds the product dries out and turns into this gorgeous velvet matte finish which literally lasts all day; There're even food and drink proof which is perfect. The actual formula very much reminds me of the Boujois Rouge Edition Velvets (review here) so if you're a fan of those lipsticks then you'll love these too.
Now that these two Velvetines have become my go too lipsticks I really want to add some more to my collection. I was so tempted to pick up the shade Cashmere, which everyone seems to rave about but was worried it wouldn't suit me with its grey tones to it. But I've decided this has to be my next Lime Crime purchase.
Have you bought anything from Lime Crime? Let me know what I should add to my basket next time I go shopping on the Lime Crime website.
Lots of Love
