Happy Hump day my doll hearts! A while back I won a give-away held by Georgie, creator of Beauxoxo & I won!! Beauxoxo is full of the cutest hair accessories & I've been a fan of them for a very long time. I wrote about them so long ago when I practically first started my blog & I still love them now. The prize of the giveaway was one of Georgie's gorgeous red glitter bows and a tube of Lime Crime's Velvetine Liquid to Matte lip stain. I had never used any Lime Crime products before (Though I have some now thanks to Kim *wink* Will share on the blog soon) but seen them on everyone really. I had been wanting a red that suited me, so I was interested in this one.
The lip stain goes on like butter really and has such a sweet delicious scent, I loved that. It dries in seconds and believe me this lips stain is going no wear, no budging or anything once it dries. I've read that some think it's a little pricey, but for not having to use a lot throughout the day because of it's longevity & wear, I can understand it's justification in buying it, but I'd like to see if I can find cheaper-just as good alternatives, also as long as they have no more buying issues online. But, I'll definitely enjoy the ones I got from Kim now!! The only thing I would warn against, is make sure you use a good lip scrub as everything shows up, I purposely didn't use my lip scrub beforehand to show the bits of flakiness on my lips. The matte formula is quite drying as well, so you may need to moisturise your lips before applying this or dab a bit on top of the lips while wearing it out.
My bow is so gorgeous, I love glitter and the red is very striking in these last moments of winter we're having. I love how it stands out against my dark hair!! It came beautifully wrapped & with little sweeties as well, love touches like that! I shall definitely get some bows in other colours from Georgie soon & enjoy my Lime Crime lippies that I received from Kim!!
I give both of these products a Sizzling Heart ♥ As I loved them & would buy from again!
(Rating scale: Sizzling Heart - Go & buy it, Hot Hot Heart - It's good, but not perfect, Lukewarm Heart - there were issues, I might buy it again, Frozen Heart - Do not buy, it was terrible)
Be sure to check out Georgie's site & Lime Crime's too!! Have a great day beauties,
Loves & Loves
p.s. I'll have a load of beauty reviews in the coming weeks, as I have drawers full of goodies, haha!
