This is my go to liquid lipstick for a matte finish. It lasts for ages and does not smudge off even after eating and drinking. Favourite lipstick to use.

Lime Crime Velvetines
Lip stain that goes on liquid and dries completely matte. Touch-proof, long-wearing, and utterly addictive!
Lime Crime is such an exciting and colourful brand. Love that they’re vegan and have such a huge range of products! But I was disappointed with my Red Velvet Matte Velvetine :(
Great packaging of course! And easy-to-use applicator. The shade was also to die for.. my only problem with it was the quality. I found that I was comparing it to matte lipstick products that were 5x cheaper, such as Colourpop. I could easily wear any of my Colourpop lipsticks for an entire day, eating and drinking, and would not need to reapply whatsoever. Whereas with my Velvetine it was cakey and didn’t stay on very long at all.
In the end I’d rather have it displayed on my makeup mantle than actually wear it out.
This one of my absolute favourites for liquid lipsticks I probably own around thirty different colours. They last almost all day and come in such a fun range of colours.
Additionally they don’t require a lipliner and are super full coverage. Lime Crime also regularly does sales on their velvetines.
The only negative is that they only have 2.6ml worth of product compared to a Kat Von D one or a Jeffree Star which has 6.6ml and 5.6ml of product respectively
My favourite item in my makeup bag! It doesn't move, and is super smooth to apply. I find I dont need to lip line as it doesn't seem to bleed on me and requires minimal re applications. As my tubes run out, I mix them with a bit of plain lip balm and they make a nice lip stain
Tips: Be super accurate when applying as once it's on it can be hard to correct.
These are super pigmented! I have this in three colours, they literally last all day and night. They can be drying so i apply a thin coat of lip balm throughout the day. They have a nice sweet smell that dosent linger too long, they are easy to apply and have a smooth texture. Pricey but the quality makes it worth it. Easy applicator to use. Always have one in my bag, on my shelf and in storage. Love these!
I love most of the Limecrime products I’ve used!
I love the Velveteens - good colouring giving a good coverage in usually just one application. I do find they can be quite drying though, so always use a good quality lip balm before application. Most colours I have used stay put, only needing a light touch up after eating or mid afternoon.
I do like the lighter colours to use as a base for the Diamond Crushers
Tips: Use a good lip balm before application
Use a lip liner - some colours I have are a little runny, and a lip liner helps stop them bleeding.
Use as a base colour for more depth when using the Diamond Crushers
I bought this after being recommended it by a friend and it quickly became my favourite! It went on beautifully with high pigment, was long wearing and didn't smudge! I ended up buying many different colours so I'd have one to go with everything!
Tips: I found I needed to use actual make up remover on my lips to get this off and is quite drying so apply sparingly and use a good hydrating lip balm when you remove it!
This is the perfect blue based red, it's a bit drying but I love matte lipstick and it lasts all day. It doesn't last through meals very well though, but it's the longest lasting lipstick I've ever used. I haven't found a pale pink that would be nice In this range though
Tips: Only apply once very sparingly as it's super pigmented.
I didn't purchase my lime Crime from the official Lime Crime website. I got them new from Trademe and they swore they weren't fakes and were authentic time crimes. However I'm not sure because I did t find the quality all that great. The lipstick went quite flakey and cracked and the colour smeared quite a bit. I wasn't pleased with the result however I must try ordering from the the lime Crime website and compare the quality as they may have been in fact fakes.
I didn't want to try these and I definitely didn't want to like them. I had heard that they were drying and not that great, and after all the negative press about the company I just never bothered. Then, one day, I found myself in the clearance section of Nordstrom Rack in Honolulu, looking at $6 Lime Crime Velvetines, and .... well I had to.
I now regret only getting one.
I chose the shade 'Polly' - a pink-mauve matte that is subtle, pretty, and infinitely wearable.
The packaging for these is gorgeous - a frosted glass tube showing the colour, with a rose-printed cap; this looks classy. The applicator is a short-wanded doe foot.
The formula is thin but not runny - I do find I need to scrape the applicator ad too much comes out at once. It's easy to apply and one thin layer is sufficient. It takes a little longer to dry than I would ideally like, but once dry, passes the 'touch test' with flying (lack of) colours, not transferring easily at all.
After eating and srinking and life for a few hours it starts to fade, but this is true of all lipsticks - I'm yet to meet one that can handle hours with no impact at all. Lips are left noticeably retaining colour, though , and the way this wears off is a lot more even than some in my collection.
In short I'm a big fan, and kicking myself for not buying the other shade there I wanted - Wisteria.
Tips: thin layers - the thick ones don't dry easily!
