Lime Crime Mini Velvetines Holiday Sets – Frosted Daze and Holly Daze – Review and Swatches

The Frosted Daze and Holly Daze sets cost $21 each from Lime Crime or £17 from UK Suppliers. They have three mini Velvetines shades with 1.7 ml each. They are vegan and cruelty-free.

Try us under the mistletoe and pucker up in the limited-edition mini Velvetines sets. Included are classic holiday hues – ranging from a festive pop of metallic finish along with 2 matte liquid lippies. The glittery ornament with window display adds the extra touch of holiday sparkle to come your way.

The packaging is in the shape of a bauble with a ribbon on the top, so if you were so inclined you could put this on your tree. It’s covered in glitter but that doesn’t come off so you have no worries there. I’m not 100% sold on the packaging, it’s certainly in the same Plain Jane design they’ve been using this past year. The bottles are just mini versions of the full sizes with again a smaller applicator.

These are mini sizes of the regular Velvetine formula. You get two shades that have already been released and one that’s exclusive to the set. It’s no secret that I love the Lime Crime Velvetine formula and these are no different.

Frosted Daze

Lime-Crime-Mini-Velvetines-Frosted-Daze

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Mimi-Lip-Swatch

Mimi: Metallic bright bubblegum blue. A lot of the metallic Velvetines have an issue with opacity, this one is no exception. It is how not patchy, just sheer. It’s very wearable if you’re brave enough.

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Moonstone-Swatch

Moonstone: Lilac grey. This one is fairly true to colour on me. It loses a bit of the grey but the coverage is very good.

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Gigi-Lip-Swatch

Gigi: Taupe mauve. Again with the mauve that just doesn’t look mauve on me. I can see the grey-ish undertone of the Taupe but this is browner than either of the colours it’s described as.

Holly Daze

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Prized-Lip-Swatch

Prized: Metallic lime green gold. Definitely matches the description even on me. it suffers a little from patchiness but it’s not bad.

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Paulette-Lip-Swatch

Paulette: Cool terracotta. This one pulls straight red on me. Lovely finish, great opacity.

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Elle-Lip-Swatch

Elle: Apricot nude. This is a nice peach nude, that stays true to colour on me.

These sets aren’t really worth it unless you don’t have the bigger sizes of the regular colours. Only the metallics are new and they are okay but not the best. It’s a nice gift if you want to introduce someone to the formula of the Velvetines.

If you’d like a set they’re available from Lime Crime for $21.
