I always wanted to try the Lime Crime Matte Velvetines and finally my sister got three of them for me. This post is going to be all about beautiful shade called “True Love.”
The original liquid matte lipstick inspired by rose petals. The liquid matte that started it all. Conceptualized and developed by Lime Crime CEO Doe Deere, Velvetines draw inspiration from her favorite flower – a red, red rose. Doe used to cut out rose petals and paste them onto her lips as a child. Richly pigmented, French vanilla-infused formula glides on as a liquid and dries down to a luxurious, velvety matte finish that lasts for hours and hours. Touch-proof, kiss-proof and utterly addictive.
My Experience with Lime Crime Matte Velvetines Liquid Lipstick True Love:
This liquid lipstick comes in a frosted plastic tube with a doe-foot applicator. The cap has a lovely design of roses over it which makes the packaging look so pretty. The applicator is easy to use. You can apply the lipstick easily and reach even corners of your lips. It lets you have precision and control, which is a great thing.
One thing I would like to highlight here is the quantity. I didn’t know the brand offers just 2.6ml product for $20. I mean, that’s kind of not fair and my lipstick is almost over.
This is one of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks ever. I always exfoliate my lips and apply a lip balm beforehand, though. This is a super lightweight lipstick. I think this is the kind of texture Colorbar was aiming for when they created their rather patchy formula of liquid lipsticks (no offence). Even though the lipstick is light and dries within seconds, it does not look patchy or dry on the lips. It also does not feel sticky after application. Once it sets, it becomes completely matte and budge proof. It also does not transfer.
My shade is called “True Love” and this is a vibrant red shade. It has a slight pink undertone but it disappears as soon as I apply this on my yellow-toned complexion. Still, the shade is very pretty and you’ll love it if you like bright lip colors. I can easily carry it anytime, even without makeup, and it looks pretty. “True Love” is a very pigmented shade and I need one swipe to spread the product all over my lips and then another swipe to even out the product.
It lasts pretty long on my lips. It can easily survive non-oily meals and drinks for around 5-6 hours and then it disappears from the inside of my lips. Most lipsticks last just 5-6 hours on my lips, so that’s okay with me. It disappears completely with an oily meal but does not leave any stain behind. I must mention that it does not dry out my lips. It gets removed easily with an oil-based remover, by the way.
Overall, I love this lipstick. The color is so pretty and the formula is to die for. I have tried a lot of liquid lipsticks so far and this is one of the best formulas ever. Even though the quantity offered is quite less, still it is one amazing buy. I must confess, I feel only a few red lip colors suit me well and this is definitely one of those. 🙂
