Matte Lipcolors are something which  I recently started experimenting with and my research for World’s best matte lip color picks ended up in getting Lime Crime Pink and Red Velvet for myself… I absolutely adore this shade and towards the end of this post, you will realize why I am a fan of this product. There are 7 shades of velvetines out of which i grabbed the most appealing ones..

These ultra-matte lip colors apply like a dream lip-gloss and dry out as totally matte. As Limecrime claims – “ Lip stain that goes on like a liquid and dries completely matte. Touch-proof, long-wearing and utterly addictive!” . Matte coral red. {LIMIT 2 PER CUSTOMER PER SHADE.}

Ground-breaking formula that goes on liquid and dries completely matte. Touch-proof, transfer-proof, long-wearing and utterly addictive!

Now the million dollar question is where to get it if you are shopping from India.

The lip colors are as dreamy as they claim. They are super easy to apply and live upto the expectations. The formula is lightweight and feels like you are a barely putting anything on. But don’t let this thin formula fool you; you only need 2 coats to achieve perfectly opaque lips. This is super pigmented and yes, once you have applied a velvetine shade to your lips and have allowed it to completely dry, it’s on for good. Waterproof, kiss-proof  🙂 Tried and Tested!!! :D….lol

The best part is that when you are wearing a Lime Crime Velvetine, you will feel like there is nothing on your lips. With amazing color payoff, They are just perfect for brides who want their lip color to lasts the whole day! Just make sure you have properly prepped your lips before applying a Velvetine. I use a Forest Essential Lip scrub- scrub my lips well- line my lips  and then fill in using my real techniques lip brush. Now the wear time….Out of these two – I get the maximum wear time from Red Velvet…

The only negative I could say about them is I personally found is  – it’s a little difficult to get neat lines easily without using a lip liner, This can be easily solved by cleaning up the edges with a little bit of stick concealer.
