For years I thought that every lipstick had a spurious sheen. That was until Lime Crime showed me the light – and the light was matte with a velvety finish.
I treated myself to these two contrasting shades; Suedeberry and Cashmere. Both of these come from Lime Crime’s Velvetines range. Cashmere seems to be a favourite with the fashionistas. You know the ones who dress like unicorns and wear plastic platform shoes, whilst suedeberry looked like a colour I needed to brighten my wintry pallor.
What else can I say? I’m going to sound like a gushing idiot either way so I may as well get on with it. You ABSOLUTELY need these lipsticks in your life. They dry matte, they smell gorgeous (kind of like a vanilla dessert) and guess what? They’re long lasting and don’t end up all around the rim of a glass. I kind of grew an unnatural hatred towards lipstick marks on glasses through my time as a barmaid. Plus, I think it looks trashy.
Anyway, here’s my face with them on:
I was surprised to find that this shades suits pale skin. I can also wear it with pretty much any outfit too without it looking overly glaring.
Suedeberry is like a staple orange-hued red lipstick. The orange undertone to this red as opposed to the blue undertones associated with the iconic red lippie lifts most skin tones.
It can’t quite easily be teamed with anything and everything but it looks best with black and greys (on me anyway).
Have you got any Lime Crime colours? Which shades do you recommend?
