Happy weekend lovely people!!
I am so happy that I am able to do this blog post because I have been wanting the products that I will be talking about for a very long time. I am talking about my two lip items from Lime Crime makeup. I have been in LOVE with neutral colors lately. That being said, I bought a lipstick in the color “Coquette” and a Velvetine in the color “Cashmere”. Both of the colors are beyond gorgeous and beyond my expectation. “Coquette” is very creamy and has a pale orangey neutral base with a slight pinkish taupe pop of color. It glides on to the skin and on top of my brown skin is so complimentary! I’m obsessed!!
Cashmere is an absolute favorite of mine now. First off, for those that are not aware what Velvetines are, Lime Crime describes them as “ground-breaking…goes on liquid and dries completely matte. Touch proof, transfer proof, long-wearing and utterly addictive”. I would venture to say that I agree with every word of these two statements. The formula is excellent and the color is magnificent to say the least. I was shocked because I thought “Cashmere” would look too cool on my skin but it actually translates to a wonderfully neutral based color. I am now on the site looking to see what other colors of both Velvetines and lipsticks I want to purchase next. I can’t wait for “Riot” (Velvetine) to be released. Hopefully, it is released around the time “Wicked” is restocked.
My only but big complaint about Lime Crime? The shipping is awful (in my opinion). I ordered on the 8th of January and I just received it on the 23rd of January. That can be a problem if you have an upcoming event and need these products. My advice: order a month in advance. Anyhoo, please share your review and experience with Lime a Crime makeup below, what do you think of the swatches?
