Lime Crime’s Velvetines range is a collection Lip Colours that apply like a lip gloss and dry with a matte velvety look. They have been incredibly popular, causing other brands to try and replicate their product. They have become a huge trend in makeup. However if you don’t have the $20 (about £13) PLUS shipping, here’s a cheap dupe for you:
It’s Makeup Academy’s Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer and it’s just £3!
To apply, start with clean, product free lips
Line lips with a matching colour. I used Mac’s lip liner in Currant
Fill in the lips with the Lacquer
Tidy the edges with a q-tip or some concealer.
It will dry matte and you’ll be left with long lasting lip colour.
It is a bit sticky while it is drying but once its set it will be dry and unsmudge-able. Seriously, it takes some elbow grease to get it off.
Now go treat yo’self with the money you’ve saved!
