Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Liners Review & Swatches – Minx, Petunia, Poison​ & Poppy

Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Liners Review & Swatches – Minx, Petunia, Poison​ & Poppy

I decided it was time to bring in some more of the new Velvetines lip liners to my collection. I bought four new shades to use with my lipstick collection.

Lime-Crime-Lip-Liners-Petunia-Poppy-Poison-Minx

The liners cost $16 each from Lime Crime or £14.50 from Cult Beauty. They’re vegan and cruelty-free. They have 1.2g of product and 24-month shelf life from opening.

Everything you love about Velvetines — from its transfer-proof performance to its soft-as-a-rose-petal touch— now in a waterproof lip liner. Wrapped in the iconic Velvetines roses, our vegan and cruelty-free lip liner has the perfect velvety matte texture and clean-line precision to create the pout you dream about. Define and design, fake a fuller shape and hold the line on feathering. This pencil liner glides on creamy smooth and easy, then dries down to a matte finish that won’t smudge, budge or bleed.

The boxes are the same as the Velvetines, bright pink with red roses on them. Keeping with the theme. They’re cardboard so easily recycled.

Now clearly I like these because I bought four more. I find them very comfortable to wear and long-lasting. I have to say I didn’t really have any patchiness issues with these. However, let’s see each one individually.

Mix

Lime-Crime-Minx-Lip-LinerLime-Crime-Minx-Velvetine-Lip-Liner-SwatchMinx is greige nude. Described by Lime Crime as Mushroom Nude, it’s pretty much my perfect nude lip colour. I really like this colour and bought it to go under my nude lip glosses and liquid lipsticks. I find this one is very comfortable to wear and easy to apply. It doesn’t have any coverage issues.

Petunia

Lime-Crime-Petunia-Lip-LinerLime-Crime-Petunina-Velvetine-Liner-Lip-SwatchPetunia is a soft pink-toned purple
and is described by Lime Crime as Orchid Blush. The formula like the others is soft and easy to apply. It has little coverage issues and lasts very well. This pulls a lovely delicate pink shade on me, going well with my pinky nudes and lighter pink shades.  It goes really well with the new blush from Lime Crime called Petal.jpg.

Poison

Lime-Crime-Poison-Lip-LinerLime-Crime-Poison-Velvetine_lip-Liner-SwatchPoison is bright cool red, described by Lime Crime as Ruby Red. It’s your classic pin-up red with a blue undertone. Again no issues with coverage or wear time. This one will go well with all your classic red lipsticks and help extend wear time.

Poppy

Lime-Crime-Poppy-Lip-LinerLime-Crime-Poppy-Velvetine-Lip-Liner-SwatchPoppy is a true orange colour
and is described by Lime Crime as bright coral red. This one is the colour of poppies and is very good for either your orange-based reds or your orange lipsticks. Again, no coverage issues here and it’s just as long-lasting as the others.

I love the formula of the lip liners. they’re not drying and do extend your lipstick. I’d like them to be cheaper but to be honest, it takes me so long to use them up that the value peruse isn’t all that bad really.

If you’d like to get some they’re available on Lime Crime for $16 each or from UK suppliers at £14.50.

Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Liner Review & Swatch – Magic & Plastic

Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Liner Review & Swatch – Magic & Plastic

One of those things Lime Crime had been missing was lip liners. Well, finally they released a set of colours. So, of course, I had to buy a few to see if I liked them. Today we’re looking at only two of the shades. Magic and Plastic. One I bought directly from Lime Crime and the other I bought from a UK supplier Cult Beauty.

The liners cost $16 each from Lime Crime or £14.50 from Cult Beauty. They’re vegan and cruelty-free. They have 1.2g of product and 24-month shelf life from opening.

Everything you love about Velvetines — from its transfer-proof performance to its soft-as-a-rose-petal touch— now in a waterproof lip liner. Wrapped in the iconic Velvetines roses, our vegan and cruelty-free lip liner has the perfect velvety matte texture and clean-line precision to create the pout you dream about. Define and design, fake a fuller shape and hold the line on feathering. This pencil liner glides on creamy smooth and easy, then dries down to a matte finish that won’t smudge, budge or bleed.

At the time I bought these, they had an offer of a Lime Crime sharpener, so it is included in this post but I do believe it’s now over.

The boxes are the same as the Velvetines, bright pink with red roses on them. Keeping with the theme. They’re cardboard so easily recycled.

Generally, like these. I don’t find them drying, I do find they make my lipstick last longer and they don’t bleed. However, as you can see each colour works differently. I’m going to note here that they were both bought shortly after the launch and therefore there isn’t a difference in how long they had been made for.

Plastic

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Lip-Liner-Plastic

Lime-Crime-Velvetines-Liner-Plastic-SwatchPlastic is bright pink. Described by Lime Crime as Candy Pink, it’s pretty much the colour that the ‘Plastics’ would wear or Barbie pink. I really like this colour and bought it to accompany the Sour Cherry gloss.  They are the perfect match and make the sheerness of the gloss not so sheer.  I find this one is very comfortable to wear and goes on well without being patchy.

Magic

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Lip-Liner-MagicLime-Crime-Velvetines-Liner-Magic-SwatchMagic is a true purple colour
and is described by Lime Crime as Pansy Purple, matching the sadly discontinued Velvetine of the same name. While I love the colour as it the same as that Velevetine it is very different from Plastic. The formula is not as smooth by any means. It does on patchy and it’s actually quite dry. Now while it does extend the life of the colour you put on top of it I won’t get this one again just due to the application issues.

So while overall I like Plastic, I am not a fan of Magic at all. I feel some of these are going to be hit and miss. I do suspect that the more unusual colours are where there will be issues, so maybe avoid those.

Lime-Crime-Sharpener-1I was lucky enough to get the pencil sharper with my purchase. It’s just the perfect size for these and very sharp. Sadly they don’t sell these but I would love to see them do accessories like these. I’d certainly repurchase this when this one breaks or goes blunt if it was available.

If you’d like to get some they’re available on Lime Crime for $16 each or from UK suppliers at £14.50.
