Little red Velvetines

Ho hohoho - Happy new year all of you lovely readers who have sticked by me! I know I haven´t been really here, but I´ll try to change that right now! Why am I saying happy new year in the beginning of June? Because I actually made this post last christmas :'D Blogger screwed me over and I haven´t been able to upload any pictures here, for months! FINALLY this problem has been settled, so now full throttle into blogging, I promise! ;-)

Firstly we can talk about the new Lime Crime products I ordered (now like 7 months ago..)!

 I waited for a long time to see any swatches of these online, to figure out if I would buy them or not. But NONE, NADA (at that time at least :D)! (Maybe it has something to do with the LC haters.. AND for everyone who reads this - you do NOT have my permission to quote me nor use my photos. You may link my page but I do not want to see everything here ending up like the last time. You know, when my LC post got totally trashed and I had people WHO DO NOT KNOW ME calling me a liar and a empty minded idiot etc. I´m again reviewing these products as I see them myself and yes - I did purchase them myself. As I like to think, if you don´t have anything nice to say - shut the hell up.)

Well on to the purchases. I took a leap of faith and ordered both of these Velvetines. The Red Velvet is obv the darker one. Their texture is same in both of lip...stains? They're not really stains, but you cannot call them lipsticks or glosses either. When applying it feels like putting on melted cream. They´re rather easy put on, but if you mess up, you better clean up quickly! It takes about 20 seconds to try and the result is a pretty matte lip color.

Yeah, we had snow back then :D

In my use it did fade in couple of hours tho.. Even when I wasn´t eating. It looked like an ombre lip style.It also felt really dry all the time. Nothing that a lip balm cannot fix. I read some reviews where they tought that the product didn´t feel dry, so I´m hoping our Finnish -15 climate had something to do with it.

The package was pretty and shiny...

 ...but why the big package? It almost had me feeling like I would find a bigger tube inside, so opening it was a bit disappointing.

Aha! There were some tips inside. Don´t really know about the 'moisture beforehand' part. I have to try.

Lime Crime - Snowsicle gloss
Then onto the real disappointment. I had maybe too high hopes for this.. If you are in need of a lip exfoliater, use this. I´m not sure, maybe others will like this, but this lip gloss is like sheer blue gloss mixed with cheap glitter - too big glitter particles! It does look pretty and it is easy apply, especially on lipsticks, but the glitter felt so annoying on the lips :D I think LC might have tried too hard here. Maybe it´s just me?

Lime Crime - Poisonberry
This honey instead was a big surprise! Same texture as other awesome LC lipsticks, it´s smooth, moist and opaque color.
