#394; Lime Crime Velvetine Wicked

I'm back from my exams with a brand new post on the Lime Crime Velvetine. This was bought quite awhile back and were awfully expensive for SGD$35 for one. It was all the rage then and I guess I just had to try this after reading many reviews about this.

It comes packaged in a metallic red box with printed roses and the cutest font adorning the packaging.

The velvetines come packaged in a frosted tube and features the same rose pattern on the cap. On the top of the cap is the Lime Crime logo. Fanciful unicorn. I love. 

I like how the whole packaging is very attractive and sleek. The frosted tube is made matte to perhaps give a sneak of the finish of this lip stain. 

The applicator is a doe-foot applicator that applies the product easily on my lips and the tip of which can reach the inner corner of my lips. I don't really know how to describe the scent of this, but it reminds me of pancakes. It isn't a sickly scent and I quite like it because it is mild.

The color is true to the tube and to review and swatches from online. It goes on like a liquid lipstick and dries to a matte finish. This was bought during the time when I was first experimenting with red lipstick and I wanted to try a dark vampy shade. This is it. A very beautiful maroon that looks good on almost all skin tone. If Lime Crime Velvetine Wicked is a fruit, it would be compared to a cherry. In fact, this is a shade really suitable for cold and cooler season to give more depth and mysteriousness. 

Since this was touted as a lip stain, I applied it sparingly on my lips and love the effect. It gives a cherry bitten lips like what Koreans are most fond of. It felt light weight on my lips as a stain and the lasting power is seriously amazing, lasting all day and only needing a slight touch up after having an oily meal. 

I used the applicator to apply a few dots on my lips before patting it with my fingers to give a more natural finish. What I didn't like about it, was how much it accentuated my lip lines. Like it didn't matter if I exfoliated, this will still show off 'em lines proudly. 

I tried using this like a liquid lipstick and I am on the fence about it. You have to be very cautious when using the doe foot applicator as it might go all over the place. This feathers crazily so get a lip liner to use with this. I didn't like how heavy it feels on my lips. The application was uneven and patchy. Ugh.

However, it is a dark shade that complements my skin tone. Would I wear it as a liquid lipstick? Nope. Prior to this, the Lime Crime Wicked dried out my already dry lips so badly, I had a lip sore and had to lay off the lippies for almost a month. But that is my personal opinion. 

Do I think this is worth repurchasing?
Nope. I'd probably give this a pass because it is easily dupe-able especially with the new Colourpop matte liquid lipstick. This does not justify the price that Lime Crime is charging and you can easily get the same color for a lot less or if you're mad crazy about this colour, look out for Colourpop Avenue. 

That's all for today! Over the exam period and the GSS, my stress buys included a whole bunch of makeup products but I will clear the pending ones before I start with my new purchase. I hope you enjoy this short and sweet review and I will post real soon!
