My affair with this brand started only last year in 2016 and I am in love with it.
I did a Lime Crime lippies haul, say, 7 of them, different finish. And I love almost all of them except suedeberry. Red Velvet, Dreamgirl and Scandal being my favourite. I will show you every colour and swatch. Bit of wait 🙂

Application Tips –
Apply lip balm 15 minutes prior; pat off excessive oils with a tissue. Apply Velvetines directly to lips (use a lip brush to refine edges). Remove at the end of the day with waterproof makeup remover or oil.
Red Rose –
I start with my favourite out of the lot. Such a lovely bright colour it is, so true to its name, a particular variety of rose is same colour and I adore it. The website describes it as ruby red shade and it stands true to its colour. It lasts all day. It is such a colour which can brighten up anyone instantly. And you get floored with compliments :).
It is a long lasting matte liquid lipstick in a deep rich plum hue. This Lime Crime shade is so full of depth and drama, it’s perfect for the bold and daring. Get this if you like to flaunt bold purple lips. No patchiness or feathering or bleeding, this lipstick is paisa wasool!! And you can mix it in light pink shade to get various levels of pretty pinks :).
Red Velvet –
What a lovely red it is!! It looks great in office as well as for brides. A rich red colour with cool tones which never fails you. Again no bleeding or chipping and superbly long lasting. For professional purpose, Indian brides, this lip color is perfect!!
It is coral red lipstick and is very bright, bit orangish. For fair complexion, it is great. For medium or dark complexions, it takes some attitude to pull off this colour. It is most patchy of the lot and doesn’t stay that long. May be mine is old or expired sort of. Or I am not that lucky in orange coral shades. Colourpop Succulent has already failed me. Anyways, it is my least favourite.
Bundle – Dreamgirl Lip Trio
The website describes it as deep cranberry shade. It is one of my fav colour. What a rich luxurious beauty. It suits all tones and age group equally. If you like dark hues, you can’t fail with this.
Red Hot –
It is metallic cherry red shade and again superb. Now, who doesn’t love super hot red with metallic touch!! Texture wise and staying power, all is good. Great for night time.
Cheap Thrill Diamond Crusher –
It is a lip topper with sunset/ rose shift. I so badly wanted to have this in my kitty. This seemed so beautiful online. In reality, let me tell you, it is great as topper. Though you can’t apply it on its own and it is bit difficult to pull off. Never a stand alone shade, but as topper, it is fine. You can see swatches below, I have used this on some of my Velvetines.
