These liquid lipsticks are controversial, pretty neat, wannabe indie, and do what they gotta do. They stay on with minimal touch ups and honestly that’s so amazing.
However, each colour seems to look different or seems to have a bit of a different formula. Furthmore, every picture of the same colour seems to look different–how annoying is that? So I decided to swatch every colour I have with minimum make-up and no filters.
It’s just plain me, the velvetines and my bathroom (yes, my bathroom).
Here’s a list with my thoughts on the colours. If I ever buy more, this list will expand.
The website describes this colour as a “true black hue”. Do you agree? I think it looks black!
Considering how darker colours usually feel dry and patchy, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this colour feels really smooth. Like what the actual ding-dong. Furthermore, it makes my teeth look really white.
The application wasn’t the best. I think that it’s a bit tricky to work with.
This colour is describe this as the”deepest blood red hue”.
This colour… Well I think it’s supposed to be a dark-red but it I think it looks far too purple to a dark red.
It’s a beautiful colour, but the application is terrible. It dries extremely fast and it feels clumpy, which makes it hard to apply.
Furthermore, it dries the lips like really badly in my opinion.
A deep cranberry colour? It looks nothing like the Limecrime’s picture, but I think it’s a pretty colour nonetheless.
Despite the fact that this colour dries fast while applying, I love it. It feels slightly tight as well, which is obviously uncomfortable, but I think Dream Girl is worth it.
This is supposed to be a deep plum hue. I suppose it comes close. It looks like the website describes.
I have no complaints about this colour itself. The formula is all right and the colour is okay too. It’s just a right kind of purple for me, in my opinion (I tend to avoid bright “odd” colours).
Honestly I’m not sure if I like this colour. It’s from the Girls Girls Girls Bundle and it’s a “peachy beige” according to the website. Perhaps I should have gone for a darker colour like Elle?
It looks alright on the selfie, but in real life it’s streaky and it makes look either ill or sort of cute?
I think it is useful to have a colour so close to my own skin colour to change the form of my lips if I wanted to.
Pumpkin is one of my favourite LimeCrime colours. It’s a nice auburn colour that is great for daily wear.
While it’s named Pumpkin, the website describes it as “brick red”–what’s up with that lol?
This colour is named Raven, “the darkest purple”. I suppose it’s pretty dark.
The colour is hard to put apply and is streaky.
I suppose the end result isn’t so shabby?
Red Hot (Metallic)
This metallic lipliquid is honestly my favourite lip product. It feels incredibly comfortable and smooth.
The website describes it as Cherry Red, but I don’t really think it looks cherry.
Red Velvet is honestly such an amazing colour. It’s a true red hue.
I don’t have much to say about this colour except that I love it. I don’t wear it often, because I tend to wear Pumpkin more often. I need to change that.
LimeCrime describes this as a red-brown hue, but I think that’s a bit off.
It’s perfect for daily wear and I wear this as often as Pumpkin.
It doesn’t crumble and it goes on smooth as hell.
A cranberry red liquid lipstick.
It looks rather purple in real.
This colour doesn’t crumble and looks pretty rad.
I bought this colour for my mother, but she felt like it didn’t suit her.
I’m not sure it suits me.
However, for a darker colour the application went pretty smooth and it feels great as well.
It seems as if Limecrime has a problem with dark red colours.
Shroom is described as 90s brown. What is that supposed to mean?
This colour went on a bit streaky.
Overall, it looks all right, but it’s not something I wear a lot. I feel it might make me look pale or ill.
Squash went on streaky as hell. I wasn’t pleased at all.
The colour dries slowly.
This is supposed to be a “light orange” hue, but I think LimeCrime could’ve added bright to that.
While I don’t like the application, I do like how it looks on the selfie.
(Hello there makeup wipes lol)
This colour is “lilac brown”, but I think it looks more like taupe purple.
I don’t wear this colour a lot, because I think it takes a lot of colour away from my face.
This colour is briiiiiiiight. It’s a bright pinkish red. I’m often too scared to wear it, but a friend and I bought it in a bundle containing Cupid and Saint.
I suppose it doesn’t look so bright on the selfie.
Wicked is described on the LimeCrime website as a “blood red” hue, but it is very similar to Bloodmoon.
While the colour is pretty, it is also streaky and I don’t like applying it.
It’s hard to apply it opaque.
So these are all the LimeCrime Velvetines I have. These liquid lipsticks used to be one of my favourites, but lately I’ve been having tough luck with choosing right colours to wear. I hope that changes soon, because with strong rivals they gotta keep up. However, I do realise that matte colours are tricky, because they are inherently drying for the lips.
LimeCrime does have one the best formulas for matte non-transferable liquid lipsticks and that’s why I love them so much. They have tons of colours and I think that’s admirable.
