What if I told you that I have a product that is so pigmented and bright, and stays put for hours and hours. You can rub your face, change and try on clothes, drink and (still carefully) eat without having to worry about it wearing off? No way? Let me blow your mind.
These beauties are Lime Crime Velvetines. If you know your makeup, you would know this cult brand, and would absolutely know about their love for the bright and daring. You may have even heard about these bad boys. Velvetines. Ah, why have you taken so long to be in my life?
These apply like a gloss, but be careful not to use too much, and then dry to a spectacular matte finish. We all know how drying and unforgiving matte lip products can be, but these ones don't feel drying at all. It's like paint, for your lips. Once it's on - it's on!
Want to see how they look on the lips? Of course you do! (Lips pics aren't mine - taken from the Makeup and Glow site - but I can assure you that the colours are spot on!)
So, now that you've decided you need these in all the colours - you can get them either directly through Lime Crime if you are in the US, or through the faboosh ladies at Makeup and Glow if you're here in Oz. Of course there are other retailers but I got mine from M&G, but go for what's closest to you.
Lime Crime have been teasing us devotees with three new colours - a deep red, a black and chocolate brown - due out next month. They've cutely names these Goth-a-tines.
So, who wants them? Or already has them? What do you think - do you love them as much as I do?
