Lime Crime i have 2 moods (On Sale): Marshmallow & Raven Velvetines Review & Swatches
Sunday, January 8, 2017
This weekend I'm featuring some lipsticks that I own, but never reviewed on AVSB. They are now on sale. Lime Crime came out with a liquid lipstick duo, i have 2 moods last year. I loved the packaging. The girl on it, kind of reminded me of the singer SIA. I also loved the play on words ... i have 2 moods ... because honestly who doesn't! Plus, I had never tried Lime Crime. I didn't think the light pink / cotton candy nude (marshmallow) would work for me, but had hopes for the super dark purple shade (raven) ... described as the 'darkest color ever made without being black'. Well let me tell you the good points! The packaging is super cute! The lipsticks have the sweetest frosting scent! When I swatched both colors on the back of my hand they looked beautiful and very promising. Well (for me), that is where the magic ends (LOL). These are very liquidity! So you have to be really careful how you apply them to your lips. They easily go outside the lip lines and I found myself going over spots that needed more color (if not your lips will look patchy). Raven, the darker color, was extra challenging! I love dark lipsticks, but this was a nightmare to apply. So the formula for these is tricky! Once you apply (and if everything goes right), they dry down. They will dry down and STAY IN PLACE! So that brings me to my next issue. They don't feel good on the lips! They're called Velvetines! And that is exactly how they feel on the lips ... LIKE A HEAVY PIECE OF VELVET CLOTH MATERIAL! I felt the color was glued on my lips. HaHaHa And don't talk about removal! These did not come off gracefully. This formula is just too heavy for me. Now, I am NOT trying to knock Lime Crime. I just recently purchased some of their metallic Perlees, and hope to have a better outcome. Anyway, this is on sale (if you're interested)! I think I'll keep the box, but that is it. LOL Have you tried anything from Lime Crime?
