Color:Riot (red-brown)

Lime Crime's liquid matte that started it all. Conceptualized and developed by CEO Doe Deere, Matte Velvetine Lipstick draws inspiration from her favorite flower - a red, red rose. Richly pigmented formula glides on liquid and dries down to a velvety matte finish that lasts for hours. Cruelty-free & vegan.



Apply lip balm 15 minutes prior; pat off excessive oils with a tissue. Apply Velvetines directly to lips (use a lip brush to refine edges). Remove at the end of the day with waterproof makeup remover or oil.

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

      I originally bought it on the limecrime website but they will NOT post bad reveiws..so here I am. I HAAAAATE this color Im so pale and usually colors look dark on me. This color had Literally NO pink in it what so ever it was the color on foundation. I assumed that "hey I must have gotten a bad batch, right?" ..to me it looked like a lighter version of shroom,(more orange..no pink) it was so ugly..so I contacted them and asked and they sent me the same exact one and Im sooo livid at how much its different from the photo. so I contacted them AGAIN and they said "well it looks different on everyone" i ask they'd refund me for shipping if I sent both back and they said no.. so my mom is getting two free lippies..if she even wants the crud next time I see her. everything else i have from them Love..which is about 25 other velvetines, v3, vxl, and 2 highlighter pallettes.. a long term customer and they couldnt fix thier mistake..gomna order from here from now on.

      These smell like cupcake frosting, go on smooth (after moisturizing a little bit ahead of time), and last all day through eating and drinking. I forget I'm even wearing it.

      My All-Time Favorite Liquid Lipstick

      By Lisa

      from Florida

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

      I never do reviews, but I saw that these were only at a 3.5 star and felt like I had to. I have been buying these liquid lipsticks for years, when Like Crime was still being hated on by the Internet. These have the best consistency and stay power than any other liquid lipsticks in my opinion. they last more than 24 hours and are not drying. I could not recommend these more.

        Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

        I was looking for a long wearing transfer proof dupe for Nyx butter gloss in Rocky Road and this fit the bill. I did a lot of research into the company first because I've heard a lot of negative things over the years and highly recommend others do the same before purchasing.
        As for the actual product I am very happy with the color Salem. It makes a lovely nude for dark skin tones. I was surprised at how thin the formula is compared to other liquid lipsticks but the color is opaque in one swipe and had only come off of my inner lower lip after eating. I was then able to touch up that spot with zero of the issues you'd expect like crumbling or color intensity difference. The only negative is that it smells like play doh which I honestly find kind of funny and the scent fades after a few minutes anyway.

        from Menifee

        Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

        After reading mixed reviews, I took my chances and bought bloodmoon on a whim. Oh my goodness. This color is everything. This formula is fantastic. I was terrified especially buying at full cost, but I'm so glad I did. I have dry lips and like every liquid lipstick I've tried (like 20+ brands and formulas) it is drying to a degree, but far less then others. I looove that it dries down completely and doesn't feel tacky, it doesn't feel like anything at all. If I have Especially dry lips and my skin is already peeling then skin will peel and the color will obviously come off too but I've have that problem once in the dozens of times I've worn it. Oil based removers are pretty much the only thing that take it off, so keep that in mind and avoid greasy food if you can't reapply. This doesn't feather for me and I don't wear liner but it is very watery and I can see how it would be a problem for some, grab a clear liner and I'm sure it'd be fine. I'll be adding a bunch of these to my collection as soon as they go on sale or have a point multiplier.

        I love all of the colors. Amazing range, extremely pigmented and there's a lot of product. Idk what the bad reviews are about so I'd recommend trying it out first! I do have dry cracked lips, but if I use Chapstick or a lil lip scrub it's fine. No transfering and it'll last all day

        By Lynn

        Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

        I got this in the color Red Rose(Ruby Red). The color goes on smoothly, has a pleasant smell and is very pigmented. I received many complements. When smudged or after eating oily food it leaves a bright pink stain behind (which makes it difficult to cover). There is little to no transfer. Initially I disliked the product but after some practice I ended up loving it. This lipstick is very comfortable and doesn't over dry my lips. When applying this product do not layer it or rub the lips together as this will create patchiness and a sticky feeling on the lips. This lipstick is prone to bleeding; however I found that wiping some product on the side of the tube and using the side edge of the applicator when lining the lips will prevent it. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

          Jinx is a great color on me. Unfortunately, it's got issues. It applies thinly and very watery. It also dries down fast, so you need to apply a 2nd coat within 10 seconds and hope the applicator doesn't push the liquidy product around into patches.

          Once it dries down, it makes my lips feel beyond dry. They feel chapped. That happens no matter which lip balm I use beneath this stuff. (No, my lips weren't chapped beforehand.) The only way to fix that is to dab a bit of balm on top of the dried-down lipstick. Doing this makes the lipstick patchy, no matter how careful and gentle I am about it. But patchy coverage is far better than stingingly dry lips.

          With or without a top coat of lip balm, Jinx isn't long lasting. I'd rate it a 6 on the long-lasting/no-transfer scale. Honestly, I'd rather just wipe it all off than reapply it. So I'd only wear this for an event/outing lasting 1-3 hours, tops. (If I was actually going to wear it again.)

          Color wise, Too Faced Melted Matte in Wine Not is very close to Lime Crime Jinx, and it's a much better formula—especially for this price range.

          After buying Jinx, I found another Lime Crime Velvetine shade, Teacup, at another store. Teacup's even worse than Jinx: super watery and streaky application, and just as painfully drying. I won't give Lime Crime's liquid lipstick a 3rd chance.

            I love Lime Crime products -I have tons of lippies! Mostly Mattes, few Plushies, bunch of beautiful Diamond Crushers & the Pocket Palettes are AWESOME! I get most thru Ulta, but even my bundles thru LC have been
            The colors of these Mattes are GORGEOUS & MOST apply easily & even -a few are a bit patchy, but another coat cleans that up! Long lasting thru food!

            • Q:

              I recently purchased Teddy Bear and love the color, but I was wondering is there was a liner (by any brand) in a similar color? I prefer using a liner with liquid lipsticks to make for a more precise application.

                A:

                Thanks for asking! The Velvetines do not require lip liner. Our doe foot applicator is designed to help with a smooth precise application. In fact, we advise NOT to use liner as lip liners can break down the Velvetines formula because of the wax/oil in the pencil. If you were to use a lip liner we would suggest an invisible lip liner around the mouth to create a barrier and help with bleeding. XO

                A:

                Thanks so much for asking! They do not dry out the lips, but they do dry down to a transfer proof formula, within about 30 seconds. For professional performance, exfoliate, apply lip balm 15 minutes before Velvetine application then wipe clean. You are now ready to apply your Velvetines.
