Hello and happy Tuesday! Sorry this post is a bit late and I've been a bit slack with my posting. I was a bit rundown and had a rash on my arms and face and that is not conducive to much at all, really!
Still, much better now. I bought Lime Crime's Wicked Velvetine just before I went away, and it shipped when I was back so I probably could have waited till I returned, but I wanted to make sure I got it before it sold out. Lime Crime's Velvetines in Red Velvet and Pink Velvet are basically my favourite lip sticks of All. Time. and I've been looking for a very dark red for ages – literally years – so when I saw they had this darker red coming out, I was very excited. (It's ok, Babycat wasn't as excited and she didn't sniff or lick or bite the wand! She just gave it a stern look.)
And I am happy to say it is AWESOME! There was a tiny worry at the back of my mind that it might be too purple/blue, which wasn't what I was looking for, and then when it arrived and I opened it I thought it might be too dark pink-y-ish, but I needn't have worried about either. It is a perfect, for me, very dark wine-y red with pink undertones, although I do find it a bit lighter than in the website pics. But. Love it.
One thing I've noticed is that the texture of it is a little different to my Red and Pink Velvelts; it's a tiny bit thinner, and feels a bit stickier. It also doesn't last in the same way as those first two do. But please, do note that I am being *extremely* picky about this. It is still SO good, and I will definitely be buying it again when this one runs out – although they seem to last for ages. I bought two Red Velvets way back when, and am still on the first tube even after using it as my go-to everyday lip stick as much as I have. So. Praises for this sung loudly!
And because there has been so much Serious Face in this post we need some silly smiley pics. And Babycat was more than happy to help Mummy take some!
