I was über excited when I came across the Lime Crime velvetines range. I am a sucker for matte lipsticks, in fact I’m sort of an addict. As Lime Crime are an American brand, I could only find it in the UK for £13.50 excluding postage. A little bit steep for a student.
I looked around for ages trying to find a cheaper alternative until I found MUA Velvet Lip lacquer. Like a true lipstick junkie I bought the whole range and it cost me EXACTLY £15.
At £3 each I just couldn’t say no.
The MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer is a thicker formula than the original, but that really doesn’t bother me. The colours are so similar to the Lime Crime range and at a fraction of the price, I am definitely not complaining. It’s kiss proof and it doesn’t smudge. BONUS!
As you guys can probably tell, this has to be my favourite buy of the year so far.
Here’s a link to the MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer. The only thing is on the website most of the colours are out of stock so I’d go on Superdrug instead. Get yourselves these lipsticks before they go out of stock soon.
From the Left to the Right we have: ‘Reckless’, ‘Kooky’, ‘Atomic’, ‘Criminal’ and ‘Funk’
I am actually in love with the product and the price. I pretty much got 5 items for the product I had bought for £16. Best Dupe.
Here is a picture of ‘Reckless’ deep red shade which is very similar to Lime Crime ‘Red Velvet’. The shine you can see in the middle is the flash, it’s actually really matte and has a beautiful red rose colour.
