Lime Crime is lime crime color liquid eyeliner collection known for its vegan friendly and cruelty free products.  Their line of lip products and eyeliners are amongst some of the most colorful items in the industry.  My all time favorite product (and my only product) from the company is Red Velvet Velvetine Lip Stain.  Recently, Lime Crime released three new colors in the Velvetine family: Wicked (burgundy wine), Salem (chocolate-brown), and Black Velvet (straight-up black).   ( USD/ 2.6ml) was the color that immediately caught my attention.  Would this burgundy wine stain measure up to my decadent Red Velvet Velvetine?  You’ll see 🙂

The Pros of Lime Crime Wicked Velvetine:

  1. Gorgeous deep burgundy wine color.
  2. Opaque coverage in one swipe.
  3. Thin-medium consistency.
  4. Sweet delicate candy scent..reminiscent of Revlon Color Stay Liquid Lipsticks.
  5. Small amount needed to obtain full opacity..therefore one tube will last awhile.
  6. Paraben and mineral oil free.
  7. Amazing matte finish appears within 20-30 seconds of application.
  8. Pairs beautifully with Shiseido Lacquer Rouge (reviewed ).
  9. Removal is easily achieved with any oil or makeup remover.
  10. Directions for usage are included beneath the ingredient list on the back of the box.

The Cons to Lime Crime Wicked Velvetine:

  1. Wicked’s formula is very dry..I’m talking Sahara Desert Dry–not recommended for more mature lips.
  2. I have not been able to wear Wicked on its own for more than 20 minutes.  A moisturizing product must be applied over Wicked for more comfortable wear, therefore, I cannot speak of its longevity on its own.
  3. Glosses/lip balms (or food) that contain any natural oils or mineral oil will break down the stain.
  4. Slight tacky texture when it sets..some color transfer on cups.
  5. Adding a new layer over an existing layer will result in patchiness and very dry lips.
  6. Price/amount ratio is rather expensive.. USD/2.6ml…when compared to Shiseido Lacquer Rouge ( USD/6ml).

My favorite way to wear Wicked is paired with Shiseido RD702.  The two formulas combine beautifully to form a long-wearing, moisturizing and highly pigmented concoction.  The brown tone of RD702, tones down the depth of Wicked, making it more alluring and wearable.  However attractive this duo may appear, this lip combo is not for those who prefer lipsticks with sheer coverage.

My stain/liquid lipstick hybrid concoction lasted 6 hours before I felt an overwhelming urge to remove what was left of my lip color after my meal.  I simply cannot tolerate the feel of faded lipstick on my lips.

Buxom Lip Color in Kir Royale also paired nicely with Wicked.  However, do be mindful that too much gloss will break down the stain and the color will bleed into fine lines.

Comparison between Red Velvet (old formula) vs. Wicked:

My tube of Red Velvet has been used very sparingly for the past three years.  Boxes are kept for reference purposes and/or when I feel it will aid in the preservation of certain products.  I happen to like the design of the older packaging more so than Wicked’s packaging.

I adore the thin formulation and applicator head of my Red Velvet.  The fibers on the newer applicator head, are not cut as precisely as the older applicator, therefore, application is a bit more challenging, but not impossible.

Comparison of ingredient lists would reveal Petrolatum and Avocado Oil (possibly responsible for the more comfortable feel) were present in the old formula and removed from the newer formulation.  Personally, I find the older formula more to my liking–it is less drying and more compatible with other lip products.  I am able to wear Estee Lauder Ruby Glow High Intensity Lacquer (reviewed ) with my Red Velvet without any feathering into my fine lines.  However, when Estee Lauder Electric Wine High Intensity Lacquer (seen ) was paired with Wicked, the stain broke down within an hour.  Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick (reviewed ) pairs well with Wicked, however the resulting finish is more satin rather than glossy.

Another use for Wicked would be to mix it with your other Velvetine stains.  The above photo contains Red Velvet as the base color and Wicked layered lightly on top.  I happen to think the resulting hue is a perfect balance of depth and brightness.  How comfortable was this pairing, you ask?  More so than if I were to have worn Wicked on its own.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Lime Crime Wicked Velvetine is not for the faint of heart.  Personally, the overly dry texture was an unexpected disappointed, but I have found ways to make Wicked work for me.  I have a weakness for dark lip colors and as the saying goes, “Where there is a will, there is a way.”  For this color, I have found my way.  What colors in the Velvetine line will you get?  Be well and stay safe.
