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.

Looooooove

Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

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

Love it!

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!
      Im a huge fan!

      SO dry and patchy!

      By Snay

      from USA

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

      Like a lot of others have said, this is one of the worst liquid lip formulas ever. It's incredibly dry, to the point where it burns and makes you feel crusty all day. And the color goes on super patchy and there's no chance of you being able to touch up. You're better off avoiding these. I really loved the bloodmoon color too. Oh well

        Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

        Amazing! Now I have really dry lips, I always make sure to apply lip balm first, finish rest of my face, then lightly remove the balm residue and THEN apply any liquid lipstick as with us dry lip folk, anything matte can tend to crack and dry your lips. However, in my experience, Lime Crime's Velvetines are the only ones that haven't been super drying! I do my little routine every time and they've lasted all day. I'm very pleased and honestly don't like any other liquid to matte lipsticks!

        Terrible formula! Limecrime is a rip off.
        There are better options such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Jefree Star, Ofra, or even Colourpop. Don't risk buying from this fraudulent company.

        Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Matte Velvetine Lipstick:

        But not the worst either. the color lasts through my busy server shifts but by the end of the night, my lips are so dry! I wish they weren't so drying because Lime Crime really has the best color selection.

        • 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

          Hi! Does this feel comfortable on your lips? I'm looking for something matte that isn't tight/drying. Thanks!

            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.
