I am going to break up my Lime Crime haul from IMATS into a few parts. First up are the new Velvetines. I had seen a lot of promo pics of these and thought they looked nice but it wasn't until I seen the actual product on a friends lips that I was sold. I got both colors, Suedeberry and Red Velvet. I picked up Red Velvet at IMATS and Suedeberry later on. They retail for $16.99 and you can purchase them here . They are currently sold out and sell out pretty quickly when they are stocked so grab them when you can!
The actual product is called a gloss but personally I would not use that term only because it dries down to be the complete opposite of a gloss. This stuff is really cool. It applies liquid and creamy and dries to be totally matte and smudge proof.
Lime Crime Red Velvet Velvetine
After wearing Red Velvet all day my lips did feel quite dry. I normally apply lip balm throughout the day. This product is definitely not hydrating to the lips at all. I will note that it was windy that day and I drank a decent amount of champagne which also contributed to the dry lips.
Have you tried the new Velvetines? If so, what did you think?
EDIT: One of my friends who got Red Velvet told me hers wore all day long without reapplying. Woot! She also said hers smelled like a Vanilla Cupcake. My nose doesn't work too awesome because I can not really smell anything when I smell mine. I had a smell test with my kids and half could smell something, half could not. They all thought it smelled like chapstick so the jury it out. I just wanted to edit in case someone wanted a truly unscented product.
Thanks for reading,
