Liquid lipstick has made quite the splash in the cosmetic world in recent years. They promise to provide a smudge-proof, long lasting, and matte finish to the lips. But the question is, do they deliver? Oftentimes, liquid lipsticks come at a premium and you want to make sure you are getting your money’s worth. We agree!
Lime Crime makes vegan, cruelty-free liquid lipsticks that are the real deal. The Velvetines, as they are so aptly named, offer highly pigmented, vibrant colors that last all day. The above swatches (from left to right: Suedeberry, Pink Velvet, Red Velvet, Wicked) are only a small selection of the wide variety of shades that are offered. For more adventurous individuals, colors options include purple, green, and blue. The thin, saturated formula smells like cake batter. It applies with ease using the doe-foot applicator, which only picks up the smallest amount of product, avoiding clumps. Since these formulas are drying and lost lasting, be sure to moisturize your lips before applying.
