Quick swatch time Lime Crime Red Velvet (original batch) vs Jeffree Star Redrum vs MakeUp Academy Reckless vs MakeUp Revolution Keep Trying For You.
The Lime Crime Velvetine and Jeffree Star Velour Lipsticks are both liquid based. The MakeUp Revolution And MakeUp Academy matte lipsticks are both creme based. Drying time is shorter for the liquid versions. Wear time is better for the creme versions.
Even though Redrum has run on the back of my hand it didn’t on my lips. If you have fine lines you might find the liquid formulation is a problem though. A good concealer or clear lip liner will stop that from happening. Jeffree Stars formula is much more forgiving on the lips and has better coverage. The creme based versions are slightly harder wearing and more forgiving on the lips.
Here’s some good news both the MakeUp Revolution and MakeUp Academy ones only cost £3 whereas the Lime Crime costs $20 (roughly £14) and Jeffree Star is £13.
