Honest reviews


its a lip stain

Was not sure what this item was. Thought it was a gloss or liquid lipstick. But its a lipstain. But it also is like a lipstick. Its hard to explain. I gave it 5 stars because the pigment is lovely and long wearing. I ordered the red velvet. Hopefully lim crime will come out with more colors. Lime crime is vegan and made in the United States. So that’s good to know also.

Rip off

This product is awesome don’t get me wrong but the price that this vendor is charging is excessive especially because you can get this same product for 17 dollars on the lime crime website!!!

HG product

I’m a ceaseless red lipstick wearer, so I’m always on the lookout for the perfect product. And honestly (not to sound dramatic) I have been looking for this product my whole makeup wearing life. It’s opaque like non-other, transfer resistant without feeling heavy like all the liquid lipsticks I’ve used in the past, in fact it’s so light I forget its on. Perfectly matte without being drying. The most perfect shade of red. And a yummy cupcake smell. I’ve never found a product that was this perfect for me and truly a holy grail product.

Betty Grable lips!

This is by far the best bright blue-red lip long-lasting product I’ve ever tried. The texture out of the tube is very thin and liquid. Working quickly is a must. Also, if your lips are dry, peeling or cracked, make sure you exfoliate and hydrate them before using this gloss.The color saturation is massive. This is no sheer lip! It dries down in about 30 seconds to a lovely soft matte finish. So if you’re looking for that glassy-glossy texture, this is NOT what you want.If you are looking for a matte, non-shimmer, flat color that looks like it came off the silver screen in Hollywood’s Golden Age? Then buy this gloss!Goes on like a gloss, wears like a stain but looks like a strong matte lipstick.

Love Love Love Love Love!!!

Fast shipment and a beyond amazing product: perfect shade of red, highly pigmented, easy application, dries on matte without drying out lips, long lasting, and adorable packaging! Honestly, it’s red velvet magic! Buying any other product for red lips would be a mistake.

Just like I had hoped

Perfect matte red lipstick, applies like a lip gloss and dries like cover-up. It’s fairly wearable but does come off a bit when eating, drinking (and kissing! ;P ). Overall I’m happy about it, I wear it everyday and it’s not oily and won’t melt off my mouth in the heat. Big plus, comes off easily unlike many of the 18 Hr lipsticks you can buy at the drugstore which will stay on you mouth for days without a thorough scrubbing.

Best gloss ever. Hands down.

I also bought the Suedeberry color, which is lighter than this. I am now officially a Lime Crime fanatic. It goes on evenly with a brush applicator. You have to let it dry for 30 seconds, but after that it’ll stay on until you scrub– and even then, you’ll have pink lips left over. I didn’t realize it was a matte gloss, and it has the same consistency as the NYX matte lipgloss, but is definitely a better quality.

Not Quite Sure :-/

Okay, I can’t decide if I like this or not. It goes on really liquidy and is messy. And I thought it would be a deep, sexy red and it is really a bright, fun red. Not really me. Is good as a base to other reds. I would not buy it again.

i can’t explain or express other than that this is perfect. i have super dry lips and it goes on like a gloss but dries like a matte. will order the other color ASAP!

Samantha Bayside, CA

Perfect red

This matte red liquid lipstick stays on for hours and hours. It has a pleasant scent and I like it a lot. You might want to use your own lipstick brush because it’s very vibrant and if you mess up it’s obvious.

Lee Crowder, OK


I bought this on Amazon because it was sold out on the Lime crime website! I absolutely LOVE the color. This is definitely a going out lipstick. It is VERY red!

Lawanda Jonestown, MS

Whomp whomp

This product is deceiving. It looks like the perfect red, but when I received it it is a super bright red that looks clownish on my medium deep skin. Pretty upset since I spent $20 especially since the formula is super drying! If bright red dry lips are your thing I highly recommend, but if not buyer beware!

Ellen Nahunta, GA

Not Again..

I was very excited to learn about this product and was very excited to try my own. Most reviews I read or watched were positive and expressed how moisturizing this product is. While this is true, I find that it bleeds, takes much longer to dry than expressed and transfers more easily than I would have hoped. Over all a good product but I will not repurchase!

Shelly Deane, KY


this is the PERFECT red! love it. the only thing is… you do have to exfoliate before you apply. otherwise you’ll see every crack, crease, crevice in your lips. other than that… LOVE IT!

Angelica Southbridge, MA

Love it!

I would deff. recommend this Lip gloss! It’s matte! and it’ll actually stay on throughout the day, I had been looking for a perfect matte red lip gloss and this is deff the one. I’ve tried a good amount of lip glosses and this one right here is the winner! deff. worth the $20.

Gabrielle Hanover, WV

Best yet

Everybody went crazy over Macs RiRi woo but this Velvetines beats them out , it is the most amazing lipgloss(lipstick) I’ve everrrrr used. People say its to drying but it goes on better with a primer or lip balm.

Petra Eliot, ME


Best lip stick on planet earth. Dries matte and lasts 8+hrs. I’ve bought 3 now. I will never stop using this.

lame lame crime

The lime crime is so not for me. This is for 12-15 years old girls I swear. Worst line of products that I have ever buyed…

Tammi Essex, CA

I like it!

I love how bold the color is. I love that it compliments my skin tone very well. It is lightweight and feels like nothing is on my lips. I really had higher expectations on it’s staying power though. 🙁 It does fade and feather on me through out the day. I end up having to reapply it at work half way through. The look and feel makes the con of having to reapply okay with me though. I might repurchase.

Michele Rush, CO


it doesnt rub off, it dries matte but keeps your lips smooth not dried out or powdery feeling, color looks great on various skin tones. I love it
