I cannot even describe my immense amount of excitement when Lime Crime announced that a beautiful bold pink would be joining the Velvetine family.
Velvetine lip stains are known for their amazing staying power, lasting all day and night. They are described as a lip stain which goes on liquid, like a lip gloss with out that stickiness, and then dries completely matte. One of my favourite things about this product is that you get a dried, matte colour that does not move one inch from your lips, but it doesn’t have a drying feeling to match like some other very matte lip sticks do. It also sets on your lips very quickly so you are not having to wait around to eat, drink or do a big yawn.
I’ve never been a red lipstick kind of girl, but this shade of pink gives you that kind of signature look, so its a great alternative if you feel that pink just simply suits you better.The bold berry shade definitely becomes the focus of your face, so I team it up with simple contouring, classic black eye-liner and doe-eyed lashes.
To have a smooth lip line and make the colour stay as bold as possible I use a matching lipliner. My two top picks are the ChiChi lipliner in Bimbo and the e.l.f lip liner and blending brush in Fuschia. Both are affordable, good quality and easy to get a hold of. Make sure you have make up wipes and remover ready for the end of the night though, because Velvetines + lip liner = could stay for a week if you left it (not even lying!)
My Pink Velvet has stayed true and still through long, busy days at work and even longer nights out dancing and partying at summer festivals. It’s my fav times a million!
