Dupe of the Day - Lime Crime Velvetines vs. Le Femme Colour Lip Stains

by 7:56 PM 1 comments
I know you guys love a good dupe, and with the US dollar as high as it is, we Aussies are feeling the pinch when it comes to buying our favourite products!

I love my Velvetines. Lime Crime scandal (after scandal, after scandal) aside, they were the first to create a product that I love and and I am genuinely heart broken when I either run out, or lose one while I'm on set.

So I've done a bit of research (ok, ok, I've done some shopping, sheesh) and I've found a product that I think is easily comparable. And the best bit? They are $14.95 (cheaper if you have access to pro discount)!!!! So you can get heaps, or all. There's no judgement here. I'm getting them all. No one can stop me!

L-R: Choco Lover, Blood, Berry Awesome, Spicy Orange, Pandora Violet, Vamp Purple 
L-R: Vital Red, X Red, Paper Moon, Sunset Orange, Tomato, Fusia Fusion, Pastel Fushia, Pale Pink (Sorry this swatch is a little blurry - it was the best of a blurry bunch)
Pigmentation is top shelf and these dry completely. The best example of this is the top swatch. I applied these and took the photo about 10 seconds later. This is one single swipe of product too, believe it or not. One thing I can assure you of is their pigmentation and staying power. When I tried to wipe the batch with Pandora Violet and Vamp Purple off, I used an oil based remover and still had an arm the looked like it belonged to Barney the Purple Dinosaur for two days. So it is safe to say that they are an excellent lip stain.

I've found a few others in my "research" that didn't entirely dry, which means they can transfer, start travelling to other parts of your face without your realising... Anyway, it's bad. Trust me on that. 

The colours are great, very rich and creamy. And as an added bonus, not as drying as the LC ones, which makes me a happy camper.

So what are you waiting for? Run! Don't walk! You need these. All of them. And you can get them here - Makeup and Glow

In case you're wondering, nope, not a sponsored post - I honestly just love them!
