Long lasting matte liquid lipstick in a true black hue.

What it does: Makes your lips feel luxurious and velvety, like a rose. Lasts all day with minimal touch-ups, even through meals.

What it won't do: Bleed or transfer. Dry out properly moisturized lips. Ruin the perfect kiss.

TIPS: Apply lip balm 15 minutes prior; pat off excessive oils with a tissue. Apply Velvetines directly to lips (use a lip brush to refine edges). Remove at the end of the day with waterproof makeup remover or oil.

    I love it

    Extremely opaque, I don't even feel it on my lips when I wear it. It looks amazing.

    PERFECT!

    I love lime crime and everything they have produced but this is by far my favorite item. From the application to removal it does everything you want and STAYS where you want for hours. Only black lip product I will use.

    Black is

    So I’ve been on the hunt for a really good matte black lip cream and I finally found it. This color is amazing. And it does feel sticky when applied nor do you really need more than one coat. I even use this as eyeliner If i forget mine. It’s that good. And it doesn’t transfer which is a super plus for me. I love this color and the quality of this product.

    The Best Black Lipstick Ever 🖤

    This is the best black lipstick I've ever had and the formula is the best I've ever tried. The lipstick is long lasting, pigmented, non-streaky, perfectly matte, and layers fairly well. Buy this. 🖤

    ^_^

    I purchased Black Velvet and have only had the opportunity to wear it once within the last week, but it's great. It didn't crack or dry my lips out as much as other matte lipsticks I own. It did fade a *tinge* when I ate, but what lipstick doesn't? It wasn't noticeable to anyone else, but I did check it so I could leave this review. It lasted 8+ hours and it smelled like cake batter! Haha. I love it. I'll definitely be purchasing more!

    LOVE the color, hate the smell

    I have a bunch of these lippies and I know they all smell sweet on purpose, but for some reason the black one is this side of nauseating. I love the color, but the smell makes me sick sometimes.

    Great Formula!

    The formula dries down very quickly and lasts all day! The smell is slighty chemical, almost like play-doh.

    Love!

    Firstly my order was a Black Friday order, and it shipped within a more than reasonable time frame! Which I really appreciate, as I am STILL waiting on a certain companies lipstick that I also ordered on the same day. But I ain't saying any names... 🌟 Secondly the packaging is adorable, LOVED IT! Third, the product. I was a bit skeptical as the formula is more wet than I am used too. But application was fine, and it dried great. No crumbly mess around the inside of my mouth or, stickiness. It's a really good formula! Didn't feather, not splotchy, and stayed put without causing excessive dryness. Will buy again. First time buyer here. Thank you.

    ADDICTED to Velvetines

    Great Product - Great Rainbow of Colors. It's high maintenance but long lasting. Would love to see a conditioner balm product for the Velvetines collection. I am actually a walking LimeCrime ambassedor in Dubai - I have the full reds and nudes range and everybody loves it on me! Sending lots of love and sparkles to the creatives and staff behind the fabulous brand. xxoo

    Underrated

    One of the most underrated shades! It's almost always on sale during an event, and it's an amazing investment! The perfect black and it is very multi-purpose.

    Black Velvet

    I love This Lipstick/Liquid Lip. The One Thing I Don't Like About This Product Is The Way it feel when you first apply it as it feels quite oily but once it dries it doesn't feel bad At All! It doesn't feel too dry and it stays on amazingly throughout the day! I completely reccomend this product!

  21. 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Cute but messy

    Perfect

    It's really a true black ! It lasts all day (or at least many hours) and is really pretty and comfortable to wear. Just a little bit harder to apply as it is a really dark colour

    Black Velvet

    I've seen a lot of these colors on Jeffree Star's cosmetics page, and pretty much found the exact same shades here, and so far, SO GOOD. There is definitely something for everyone here, you won't be disappointed! I love the soft finish, the sweet scent and the fact that it lasts a log time before you need to reapply. As far as I'm aware, these products are also cruelty-free, which is another plus. I want to have as many of these beautiful shades as I can get my hands on! And thank-you to the rep I spoke with before I bought the product! You were awesome! I would recommend Lime Crime to anyone, and have been :)

    Amazing!!

    I love love love this lipstick!! I've been longing for a black lipstick like this. Dries matte and doesn't smear, smudge, or stain!! A little hard to get it off, but nothing a little vaseline can't fix. Shipped super fast to California. One of my absolute favorite lipsticks now

    I love Lime Crime to death!! This lipstick lasts me hours and is extremely pigmented. It also smells nice, which is a pleasant suprise. If this ever gets discontinued I will be doomed. I have never found a better black lipstick. This is better than Kat Von D's and Jeffree Star's

    My daughter rocks it!!‰÷¼•ü

    My daughter is 13 and adores Melanie Martinez so I bought her Salem, Beet It and Teddy Bear a while back and she loves them! So she wanted Black Velvet and I said she could have it but not to wear it in public lol. So of course she shows up with it on at my work lol and all the young girls I work with said she was absolutely beautiful and rocked the black lipstick. So now this mama lets her wear whatever lipstick color she wants because at the end of the day she a great kid and I don't worry about her because she's at home at night. So I've learned to pick my battles. Thanks Lime Crime!!! You have fantastic products!!! But I told my daughter next one we get I get to choose the color because I love the nude/neutral colors like Marshmallow!

    Best black lipstick ever!

    Most back lipsticks are either very waxy and have little pigmentation or wear off so easily. Most black lipsticks were only sold around Halloween when I was younger (especially where I live in the US... Kentucky) but this lipstick is the bomb! Feels like I'm not even wearing anything on my lips!

  48. 5.0 out of 5 stars

    This is the absolute best

    This is the absolute best black lipstick I have ever worn. It does not bleed and covers my own lip colour perfectly. I would definitely buy again. Well worth the price.

    Love them all!

    I purchased Jinx, Salem, and Black Velvet and I seriously love them all! I have a medium tan skin tone and they all compliment my skin very nicely. They dry really quick and I don't really need to reapply at all. Love these lippies will come back for more colors!

  60. 5.0 out of 5 stars

    great product!

    I love this product! It goes on smooth, dries quickly, and stays all day long. Would recommend this and any of the velveteens.

  61. 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Love this product!

    I absolutely love this product. When you apply the lipstick it goes on very light. You only need one layer of the lipstick to get a nice even opaque look. It wears really well and passes the kiss test. I am very happy with my purchase.

  62. 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Black Velvet

    This is the best black lipstick you could buy. I was worried putting it on that it was going to transfer on everything but once it dried it lasted and didn't move the entire day! Also, these products don't dry your lips out they are SO creamy! I highly recommend if you need a black lipstick in your life.

  63. 4.0 out of 5 stars

    It's pretty good

    Doesn't last that bold for a long time. But it's pretty good and smells really good

  68. 5.0 out of 5 stars

    So good

    Wasn‰Ûªt super dry, didn‰Ûªt dry too fast, didn‰Ûªt really like the smell (kinda sweet and fake smelling but eh if you‰Ûªre into that), colour was great, lasted long, perfect for that matte black lip. Only problem - smudges are hell to clean but it‰Ûªs a black liquid lipstick, what do u expect

  69. 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Wand?

    Love the color and formula! But the wand seemed different than the other two that I have, which makes it slightly more difficult to put on. But other than that, I love it!
