Alternative to Christmas red: Lime Crime red Velvetines – Raisin Hell

Cristmas ideas


I only recently started their acquaintance with cosmetics or Lime Crime, and of course it was not without its famous “Velvetine”. For Christmas I wanted to try on lipstick with a metallic effect Metallic Velvetines, and shade Raisin Hell immediately caught my attention. I think this rich cherry metallic is a great alternative to a traditional red lipsticks that are so popular this time of year.

I have a full-sized version of the lipstick, although many other manufacturers may argue that the volume of 2.6 ml is more appropriate for the thumbnail.😁 I was not too concerned about this fact, so I’m not going this shade to use on a daily basis. I think even that’s enough for a long time. Lipstick was originally Packed in standard Velvetines box with roses. Unfortunately, the photo I have of her has not survived. The tube is quite heavy and made of thick matte plastic with a beautiful lid, which repeats the pattern of the boxes.


Long ends melkojacheistym applicator sponge, which is convenient to draw the contour of the lips even in this bright color. The limiter returns the number of the lipstick, which is enough to completely paint over the lips. However, the applicator and the neck of the tube remains slightly “smeared”. The lipstick is twisted tightly, so no worries that it will open or flow.

The lipstick is Lime Crime Velvetines Metallic sweet pastry aroma, characteristic of all velutinum (can only compare with a couple, so correct me if I wrong). Smell only when applied, so I have nothing against β€” in my opinion, it’s better smells like vanilla chocolate than gouache (Colourpop, take note). This lipstick is probably the most liquid of all that I tried, but this allows you to lay her on the lips with a thin layer that is not felt ‘putty’.

Color Raisin Hell β€” this is dark cherry metallic with a neutral glare. I was a bit apprehensive that such a finish may look a bit old-fashioned, but it turned out that the flare is quite muted and does not look like the mother of pearl lipsticks from the ‘ 90s. In addition, thanks to the metallic shimmer, this dark lipstick does not “eats” the volume of the lips. Shade, in my opinion, pretty neutral and can suit both warm and cold color type.

The lipstick feels very comfortable on the lips and pleased with their durability until the first consumption of any fatty foods. At the same time, it goes from the center of the lips quite evenly, not “chunks” and makes it easy to apply a new layer on top of the previous one.

Wash Metallic Velvetines is a fat β€” containing means of a two-phase liquid, a balm or a simple cosmetic oil. Maybe to leave a little tint on the dry spots of the lips, but does not stain the skin around the lips by washing, which can not but rejoice.
