Lime Crime Velvetines: Review and Swatches 

Hey guys! In the past, I’ve done a couple of collective posts on liquid lipsticks, but the posts/pictures didn’t survive the move to a new website, so I will be reviewing them by brand over the next few months, and I will probably do a best-of post later in the year.

Today’s post will be a review of LimeCrime’s Velvetines. If I remember, they were one of the first brands, if not the very first to popularize the matte liquid lipstick.

I have to say, the formula of their lipstick is amazing. It lasts all day, it is comfortable, it is not overly drying, and it doesn’t crack and crumble. It also doesn’t hurt that it smells like chocolate, and that their packaging is bomb!
I feel like the wand is the perfect length. Not too short, but not too long, and the applicator applies product with no issues. I would probably give  them a 10/10 based solely on the quality of their products.

I have three shades: Salem, Riot, and Wicked as shown below and I love them all.

Have you tried any LimeCrime Velvetines? Do you like them?

PS: This brand is rather notorious. I don’t really want to get into the dramatic specifics of it all, the information is out there if you’d like to Google it. But I just want to say, if you’re considering buying from them, always use Paypal. This is available to purchase at and they ship to Nigeria.

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I really like Lime Crime’s packaging, but with my dislike for matte liquid lipstick plus LC’s unending controversy, I’ll have to pass. Funnily enough, these days whenever any lipstick catches my eye, I merely admire it from afar. The ones I really want (Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche & Urban Decay Vice) aren’t available here, so I’m holding out until I gain direct access to them later in the year. Wish me luck, and please keep the great reviews coming.

    1. Yes! I’ve got my eye on the Amuse Bouche lipsticks and the Agave Lip mask. Tbh I want the entire Bite Beauty collection. I also really want the Urban Decay Vice liquid lipstick in the shade 1993, and Kat von D’s Hawkwind. I think that’s all I’m buying this year as far as lipsticks go. And maybe Smashbox’s True Grit or Miss Conduct.
      LimeCrime really mishandled that whole situation from the get go and it’s very off-putting.
      Good luck 😊, and thank you for all your lovely comments.
