Ah I’ve been so looking forward to showing you these little beauties!
The Lime Crime Veletines have been selling out over and over since they hit UK shores but things seemed to have calmed down a bit down and you can buy them more easily. But why would you want to? Well if you’re looking for Matte colour, that’s vibrant and fully opaque and wears for a long time on the lips, look no further.
Meet Suedeberry and Red Velvet.
Suedeberry is described as a warm light red and Red Velvet, which is, a rich red, like velvet of course!

In terms of how these look it’s phenomenal. Truly impressive. Suedeberry is a true orange on me, rather than a light red, and red velvet is just gorgeous. Here’s how they look.
And Red Velvet.
LOVE! In terms of formula, because of their matte finish they can be a little drying (although actually I only found Suedeberry drying) but it’s easily remedied with a slick of lip balm about ten minutes before applying (I just apply lip balm before I do anything else and then crack on with my foundation and eyes etc).
In terms of wear, they are not transfer proof, they’ll come off on anything you touch with your lips but they were extremely well on me. I’ve heard one or two other people say they don’t wear too well but I really can’t find fault at all. They were exceptionally well and as they fade it gets a little bit patchy, nothing too troublesome though and I’m talking about over a period of hours.
These are £11.50 each and only come in the above two colours, but I know a hot pink one is imminent!
