Rave-ing About this Velvetine



This week has been absolutely insane! I feel like I’ve been ambushed by work on all sides, and we know that all work and no play makes LeAnn a dull girl..


So today, I’d like to add some brightness with Lime Crime’s neon purple Velvetine in Rave!


Can we all take a moment to agree to ignore Lime Crime’s controversial status for a moment and just enjoy the beauty of this limited edition shade? For the record, I purchased this color from a 3rd-party retailer at a makeup show, but I completely understand why one may choose not to purchase this brand at all.


That being said, check out the glow on this baby! It provides a smooth, comfortable soft-matte wear and finish, and lasts around 4 hours without the need for a touch-up. The shade itself is gorgeous and tropical. I also feel like my face looks – dare I say it – tan when I wear this color as well. This is a characteristic I appreciate, especially when all the bronzer and contouring in the world can only slightly diminish my paleness.


I haven’t done much testing on this one’s UV light capabilities, but with fall in the air (wishful thinking!) and Halloween right around the corner, I can see this lipstick getting plenty of use for costumes and black light parties. This bold color is definitely one to have fun with!
