Lime Crime Black Friday Buys: Pink Velvetine and 6th Element Eye Liner

Lime Crime Pink Velvet Velvetine and 6th Element Liquid EyelinerI scored Lime Crime’s newest Velvetine – Pink Velvet – on Black Friday at a 20% discount. I saved $4, which isn’t much but still excited me! =)

Velvetines are lip stains that dry down matte, are long-wearing and pretty much touch-proof. They come in 3 colors: Red Velvet – a deep, rich red, Suedeberry – a brighter, strawberry red, and Pink Velvet – this gorgeous hot pink.

I’m not a huge fan of mattes, as I feel some of them are too drying on my lips and will flake off. This was not a problem with Pink Velvet. I applied a balm and a clear lip liner all over, then applied Pink Velvet. The color hugged my lips and did not budge, transfer or smear for hours. It wasn’t too drying, although I did have to reapply lip balm half way through the night, but that is normal for me when using mattes.

I drank, ate, laughed and talked throughout my evening wearing Pink Velvet, and when I came home the color was almost as vivid as when I first applied it.

I only wish this came in more colors. I’m one of those people who fear red, so I always opt for a nice pink, purple or orange. Radiant Orchid would be an awesome Velvetine for 2014! =)

Along with my brand spankin’ new Pink Velvet, I also ordered this super pretty 6th Element Liquid Eyeliner. I was looking for an orange liner that wasn’t muted and would pop, and luckily for me this was the only available liner on (until they restock).

6th Element is a smudge-proof liquid liner that brightly lines my eyes. The color is a vivid orange and definitely makes a statement, albeit not quite as loud as Pink Velvet. Even though it is smudge-proof, it’s waterproof enough to get me through a few hours without smear, but not completely waterproof that I can wear it worry-free throughout my day thanks to my watery eyes. The outside corners of my eyes will lightly smear if my eyes are especially watery that day.

Still – I love this color and love to use it in a double line above black. As soon as Orchidaceous comes back in stock, I plan to buy that one, too!
