Lime Crime Velvetine in Sueberry

Lime crime came out last winter with a 2 color lip creme collection  called Velvetines. One is a vibrant red color called red velvet and the other which I have on through out this post is sueberry. Sueberry is an amazing strawberry red color. The formula of the velvetines are amazing. They are considered lip stains and lip stains are a pain but this is highly pigmented and so smooth and easy to work with. You could even layer it and it won't smudge or flake like most lip stains.

Priced at $16.99 and only availableon Lime Crimes website or ebay, I'd say its worth giving a try. Here I paired it with Mac's Nightmoth Lip Liner.

Dupe Alert!!!!

Recently I had purchased the Viva Glam Nicki lipstick from Mac and did a post on it because I have never seen such a pretty color that was both vibrant and pigmented  before.


                  Mac Viva Glam Nicki                             Wet n Wild in pinkerbell  

 The color is a coral pink, which I've seen but nothing compared until I found Wet n Wild's long wear lipstick in pinkerbell. Now this is dead on compared to Viva Glam Nicki. Pigmentation and vibrancy is Amazing!!!! For the price and quality, they mind as well switch the lipstick tube and call it Viva Glam.

             Mac Viva Glam Nicki swatched                  Wet n Wild Pinkerbell swatched

I honestly think Wet n Wild's lipstick is much more opaque then Mac's lipstick and is a 60 percent cheaper. Mac lipstick is $15 and Wet n Wild is $2.95.

Drugstore Edition- Setting Powders

So it is important to set your makeup because it will prolong the longevity especially throughout the summer. I did my research and tested some great drugstore setting powder finds.

You could go for something translucent, pressed or loose powder or you could go with something tinted in color or a powder foundation even. Now these powders could be used to set all over the face and underneath the eyes as well.

Loreal true match dependable powder

Nyc smooth skin loose face powder

Dermablend loose setting powder

Milani multi task face powder

Black Opal deluxe finishing powder

Iman Second-to none semi loose powder

Maybelline mineral power finishing veil translucent loose powder

Ben Nye Luxury Powders

All these drugstore friendly products are great for setting your face especially in the summer heat.
