Review: Lime Crime Velveteen Red Velvet

Hello cupcakes.
Brr the weather this weekend has been slushy, cold and yucky. On top of that everyone in my house was sick. Oh fun times. Today was the first day all week I was able to do anything, so when my girlfriend asked to meet for lunch I was all for it.

I threw on an outfit and did my makeup. I kept my eyes pretty soft so decided to do a bold red lip. Of course I reached for one of my favorites, Lime Crime’s Velveteen lipstick in Red Velvet. Let me just tell you it’s been love at first sight since the first time I tried it.

I never thought I would be able to pull off a red lipstick until I found this one. I think a big reason I love it is because it goes on wet but dries to a matte. I’m all about matte lipsticks lately. I can’t say it’s completely stain proof, some will come off here and there but not like regular lipstick. I’ve eaten complete meals with drinks and dessert and not had to touch up my lips. That’s a plus in my books. Sometimes if I don’t want such a bold red I take a dark burgundy lip pencil and fill in my lips with it a bit mixing the colors before it dries. By far this is one of my favorite purchases and I’m going to be buying more from the line.

As you can see it is bright red but still kinda of flat I guess is the way I would describe it. The perfect pop for those special days out. Hope you all are keeping warm. Till next time.

What’s your go to lip color? Do you prefer lipstick or lipgloss?
