As I told earlier that I was eyeing lime crime Pink Velvet but never got the chance or the opportunity to buy it as either I bought some other makeup stuffs or the velvetines remain out of stock on their website. But this time luckily one of my friend who is also a seller was taking orders and I immediately ordered shade red and pink.
I never tried velvetines before but read loads of good reviews. Coming to the texture velvetines are lip stains. It is very obvious that it will settle into a true matte color and so people with dry lips may find it very drying. It emphasizes lines on lips but those who love to wear mattes, velvetines are truly made for them. The applicator that comes with the lip stain is just ideal to use. I personally love the velvetines a lot. They are true to the claim that they are touch-proof and transfer-proof. Infact removing these is only possible if you manually tend to remove it with some oil makeup remover or else they are resistant to water too!
Coming to the pigmentation, velvetines are famous for its pigmentation, as the pigmentation is awesome. One swipe and you are ready to go.
The velvetines tends to dry the lips so proper exfoliation of lips along with moisturisation prior to application of this lip stain is suggested. Pink velvet is a bright pink shade that will suit warm skin beauties mostly NC 35-NC 40…The Velvetines stay for a really long time and it survived heavy Punjabi oily food too(lol), no transfers, no fading at all! This is definitely going to be my go to lip shade for those occasions where I have loads of food to taste 😛 hehehhe…

“INFO ON A SILVER PLATTER”- Despite of the cons I must say that the pink velvet is so pretty that no one can ignore this shade. The velvetines are famous for factors like long staying power, touch proof and transfer proof. The shades are pretty dupable so if you are a matte lover then only go for it otherwise you can easily skip this.
