Hi again everyone,
I hope those of you who are in Australia are not freezing to death. As for you who are in Queensland and Western Australia and in the northern hemisphere, no pity for you! haha!
I wanted to share with you all another review. Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Lipstick.
It's a liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish without being too drying. It comes in two shades, Suedeberry and Red Velvet. It is also Vegan and Cruelty Free if that is a concern for you. I tried Red Velvet which is a lovely deep, blue red.
Let me tell you the longevity of this product on the lips is unbelievable! I put it on at 8.00am, with a lip liner (my lips are a little uneven), went to work, ate all day (including oily foods), went to the gym (looking very glamorous I might add!), sweated alot and came home at 7.30pm and I still had a full lipstick on. No bleeding, no smudging and most of all not drying! When I did take off the lipstick (which incidentally came off with a tissue, no rubbing or scrubbing required), I was left with soft lips. Bonus!
I was pleasantly surprised. It feels really lovely on the lips. Not like other lip paints that claim 12 or 24 hour stay on. Those make me feel like I can't move my lips and still come off after eating an oily meal.
I think for the price it is well worth at least trying. I'm not a young girl by any stretch and I get a little bleeding even with the mattest of lipsticks. This for me is a godsend!
Unfortunately, I have yet to find a retail store that sells Lime Crime Velvetines in Australia (at least in Melbourne). I purchased mine online from www.makeupandglow.com.au for $21.95. MakeupNet, www.makeupnet.com.au is the official supplier of Lime Crime for Australia and New Zealand. There are quite a few different online stores that sell the product. Just let your fingers do the walking!
All in all I love this and have worn it every day since my first trial. A huge thumbs up for me!
Until next time
