Okay coming to the packaging: -
 Lime crime Velvetines comes in a beautiful rosy red carton with frosted glass kind of tube through which you can see the shade and the level of how much it is there in it. The tube is sleek and it comes with a doe-foot applicator to apply the lip stain.

Lime crime velvetines are described as matte lip stain that will insanely stain your lips for hours without any fading. They are available in 6 shades and a new one that going to be launch very soon. Among all the 6 shades I grab red and pink the most hot selling lime crime velvetines. These two shades are most of the time remain out of stock so I have to order it through one of my friend.

My experience:-
Lime crime velvetines are famous for cruelty free, pigmented, long staying power and for drying properties. It is very obvious that when it comes about lip stain that lasts long it should be drying a bit so as to hold the shade without fading for hours on lips it has to be dry and lime crime velvetines just justify the point. So dry lips people should avoid these lip stains whereas matte lip products lover can jump to grab it. I personally love a lot matte lipsticks so these velvetines just click right for me. The shades are much pigmented, one swipe and it is enough to cover your lips. And the staying power? I seriously don’t think to describe that whereas lime crime are just famous for its long staying power, it stays beautifully 7-8 hours unless and until it is manually remove by some oil type makeup removers. It easily survives heavy meals and it doesn’t transfer here and there madly at all. The Velvetine are scented like some yummy cookies…I know it is not a good description of smell of a lip product but trust me atleast I found it smell like cookie which stays hardly few minutes after application. The velvetines has tendency to dry out quickly so it is suggested not to try to line your lips with it, otherwise you might end up with uneven dry lines so what I do …I simply draw outline with a red lip liner for red Velvetine in this case and followed by fill up with red Velvetine so it became very easy to draw the line over lip pencil and fill it quickly before it dries out. Proper exfoliation of lips before applying the velvetines is suggested else one might end up with uneven scaly lips showing all the fines lines of the lips too.

Here are few hand swatches of the Red velvetine along with few Lip swatches...lolzzz.... loads of pictures....:P

So here are the “ohh so good” and “ohh so bad points”:-

Good points:-
·         Nice sleek frosted glass packaging.
·         Pigmented.
·         Stays for hours.
·         Smells like freshly baked cookies.
·         Survive heavy meals without fading.
·         Doesn’t transfer here and there.
·         Never bleed or feather in summers.

Bad points:-
·         Availability.
·         They are not suitable for dry lips people.

My ratings: - 4.5/5

 And finally it is me with my favorite velvetine ....tadaaaaaaa !!!

My final verdict: - Despite of all the cons I just simply love the Velvetines as they are so pigmented, mattes and survive heavy meals…. so simply for these three points I will re purchase these Velvetines once I end up these, else the shades are pretty dupable so if u hate drying up your lips and love to flaunt your juicy or glossy lips then you can happily skip it.
