I have not tried the Lime Crime Velvetines but I can imagine this product would be a great dupe at a fraction of the cost. Makeup Revolution have definitely created an amazing product here - it goes on so so opaque and dries perfectly matte. The product is so easily to apply too with the help of a lip brush to make clean lines. Another plus for me is that the product stays on for so long however if it does come off (I do not see how) your lips are left stained therefore still providing colour. I can totally see how some people would find this annoying though.
The only negative about this product is that you can really feel the product on your lips. So sad to find a fault is such a pigmented, matte, long lasting product. It clung to the inside of my lips and was so dry there which made eating very uncomfortable. Maybe I just had dry lips? I have no idea but it really made me want to take the lip lacquer off...
Anyway this product is amazing for £3, I now just have to decide if I can handle the horrible feeling on the inside of my lips again. I guess just a lot of exfoliation and lip balm will be needed before I next apply this product!
Have you tried a Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer?
