Lime Crime Velvetines - Suedeberry - Review

I am really loving the Lime Crime Velvetine Collection - Lime Crime's 'liquid lipsticks'.  On first glance you imagine them to be like a gloss but they aren't at all, they are a different texture, non sticky and the formula dries almost instantly on the lips.  The formula is waterproof and it literally sticks to your lips.  It seriously does not budge, giving your hours of long lasting colour.

At the moment there are only 2 shades in the Velvetine collection- Red Velvet (which I am also lucky to own), is very deep red and the one I am reviewing today.

Suedeberry is a light red however on my lips it looks like a warm strawberry shade and I adore it.   It has a matte finish but if you prefer more of a sheen, simply apply some gloss over the top.

 The Velvetine Collection have a very 1950s/Marilyn Monroe feel about them which makes me feel quite glam when I wear them on a night out.

I adore the packaging, Lime Crime always put such effort in to the design of each of their products.  The lid is embossed with the Lime Crime name on one side and on the other it simply says Velvetines.

You can buy these from Cocktail Cosmetics priced at £11.50 and they will last you forever.  These would be fab Christmas presents for your girlfriends too. Yes I know, I said the C word - but it is only 13 Saturdays away!

I think it would be fabulous if Lime Crime were to bring out more shades in this collection, perhaps some purples and pinks - they wouldn't go a miss.    Oh yeah forgot to mention, in case you didn't know - I am currently giving away 'Red Velvet' as part of my blog revamp celebration, so please do enter to be in a chance of winning one of these little gems.
