I own so many velvetines..and I really love them. I can't wear them every single day because they do dry out my lips a bit but if I am careful about putting my Kiehls on my lips at night, I can swing it...but they are really long wearing and the packaging is adorable. My favorites are Happi, Siren, Polly, Seashell Bra (which I think was limited addition), and Blondie, but there really aren't any bad ones IMO. I put one on this morning at around 7AM and by 1PM (after drinking, eating something and putting chapstick over it), it was still there! Not 100% but still there. really love them and they smell like waffles! :) Also, put on a very thin coat, don't glop it on, it's really full coverage :)

Lime Crime have introduced two new 'Plushies Quads'; pressed pigment quads, which contain matte eyeshadow shades in a diffused & buildable formula. The Sweet Blends quad contains the following shades; Rosebud (rose pink), Chocolate Milk (mocha brown), Melon Smoothie (peachy nude) and Blueberry (dirty blue). The pink and peachy shades make great blushes.This is an easy product to review; all of the shades feel the same, blend the same and wear the same. They're all very creamy so apply very smoothly and evenly, they all blend out easily and I've had zero creasing or colour fade. I have deepset eyes and have had very zero transfer. There is some kick-up when I dip my brushes into the pans, but that is something that never really bothers me as long as the shadows apply and perform well, which these do. It takes some building to get the shades to match up to their pan appearance, but they all do reach the pan-shade without any difficulty. This is where I want to defend the quad a bit; these quads have a different formula to the brand's Venus eyeshadows, so obviously won't perform the same way. I understand why some people would not want to bother with shadows that need building up, but that is how they are meant to be and it was public information before the palette was released - it's not some kind of fault with the product. Personally I'm a big fan of this kind of formulation; as you can get the shades to look completely different, so it's like getting a new 12-pan palette, rather then a quad.Fresh Squeezed is a quad so there are only four shades, but the pricing is reasonable enough to excuse this, especially considering the awesome product quality [each pan is 1.67g]. The powders are a pleasure to work with; so I'd rebuy this in a heartbeat if I lost it. I highly recommend this quad.

Love this palette I think it's excellent! I have Venus xl and 3 and love them. So when I saw that this had grunge shades or 90's colours I had to get it. The shadows are very easy to blend and are quite pigmented. I love Aura on my brow bone and inner eye highlight. Venus I love as a liner and Divine is an awesome crease colour. Muse is another shade I just love. All these shadows are really good. I love how easy they are to use and how long they last without creasing or fading. About me I'm an nw20 or below and have very cool undertones and this works great with my colouring. The shadows also look great with green eyes. It makes mine look greener. Love.

One of my most favorite palettes. All are so soft yet pigmented and not powdery. Wish this had more purples instead of all pinks and dark reds. Overall it’s my staple and wouldn’t trade it for any other palette!

Well I'm kinda crazy about lipstick, etc, so had to try this brand of course, a few years ago. I have about 20 or so Velvetines and lipsticks by Lime Crime (lipsticks have super cute flowery packaging on the tube) but The Diamond Crushers knock me out! My latest favorites are Gemini, Lit, Cleopatra and Lana. I have Trip and it's too blue purple for me Choke is a lot like Lit. I've had that one longer and I guess I didn't close it well enough so Choke dried out. Gemini, which is also bluish/purple(as Trip is also purple) dries down to a better, different shade on me. Lana is a nice bronze shade. I mix up everything, all colors for different looks. Lit is very smooth and I do use my finger to smooth around the color. Cleopatra is pretty glittery and dries fast so moving it around on your lips and using sparingly helps. It looks awesome. Got to be careful the glitter stays on your lips before it dries. The best thing for me is the staying power, it lasts and lasts even though eating. It may be drying for some people but for me the trade off for staying power is worth it. I LOVE THIS STUFF !
