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. Well, I have seen people from different instagram groups, FB groups etc selling this for almost triple charges of its original cost…Now, I am sharing with you from where I purchased mine and how much did I pay for international shipping

I ordered Pink Velvet directly from Limecrime website. happy news is that, they ship to India. My order details as follows.


Within 24 hours of placing the order , my order was shipped and tracking number was provided. I paid 30.95 $ incl shipping ( around  1897 INR)limecrime2

I received my order on the 7th working day after it was shipped


Now, I purchased Red Velvet from a website called Order details as follows. I got a free intl Express shipping 🙂 <3 Thanks Dollskill for this! Also, got a 2$ discount coupon code- After all discounts + shipping – 18 $  ; some 1100 INRfor red velvet! Amazing deal, isn’t it?




I received my order on the 3rd day of placing the order.



Isododecane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Synthetic Beeswax, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Flavor (Aroma), Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate. May Contain [+/-]: Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Red 7 Lake CI 15850:1, Red 6 CI 15850, Red 30 Lake CI 73360, Red 28 Lake CI 45410:2. VEGAN/CRUELTY-FREE.


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.

Now the swatch time! This is hands down a must have perfect red lip color for EVERYONE. It pairs perfectly with any skin tone and is the perfect Hollywood red. Single swipes 🙂 Love the color payoff!


Pink Velvet is the perfect hot barbie  pink lip color and is a very versatile hue. It goes well with any skin tone


Superb colors that match every skintone..Go shop girls!

Which is your favorite among these two

Lovely LOTDs!! Did you have to pay any customs charges for both websites ? Do they accept debit card payment or only paypal?

    renjianooj · November 10, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    They accept only credit cards… and paypal
    I didn’t pay any customs…

      birdy · June 7, 2015 at 4:53 pm

      Hey, I also want to buy few of these shades. When you bought from dollskill, your item didnt get stuck in custom in India?

      My many packages have lost due to no tracking outside US and on top I dont know where to pay custom duty so they held up my item and I never found them. I personally will pay a little more to get these, if I have gaurantee that it will be delivered at my doorstep.

        renjianooj · June 8, 2015 at 2:57 am

        no…I received very fast….dollskill is awesome!
