Long lasting matte liquid lipstick in a ruby red 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.

    Pretty, but not as shown

    This shade is very pretty, but it is not as shown. It is not ruby. I wouldn't call it red at all, it is more like fucsia.

    Good but not amazing

    This color is much more pink/fuchsia then red. It's also really thin, but really pigmented and buildable.

    Nice but...

    I knocked off a star because, unlike the swatches on the website that show a rich, ruby red, on my skin it looks like a deep hot pink. Not expected or wanted at all. The product itself is the same as others I have purchased from Lime Crime-long lasting and vibrant color. Just not the color I was hoping to get.

    Rose red

    It looks so much prettier in person than online. I love it!

    Not perfect but still amazing

    The liquid lip is pretty liquidy, so it's a tad hard to apply, and it takes a long time to dry. Stays slightly tacky but nothing to obnoxious. Color is very rich with one swipe, and it lasts a pretty long while. Not my absolute favorite liquid lip, but one I'll definitely use often!

    Ruby red

    The lipstick quality is amazing and it stays on all day but it's alot Pinker than it looks in the photos. I'm not all too sure how I like it on me personally.

    Berry not Ruby

    Gorgeous color. Definitely not red, but it's beautiful. I picked it instead of Red Velvet because it looks like a deeper red in the stock photos (and it was on sale), but it isn't. It's a berry pink color. A little thinner in the formula than say Red Velvet, but it still gives nice pigment and coverage.

    Not-so-red rose

    Nothing like the pic. Not red. Dark hot pink. Most of the shades are very close to as pictured, but this one was waaaay off. It's a great color- if I had wanted pink instead of red.

    It's amazing

    I had a car accident in February and the day after I passed the night in the hospital it was still there 10/10 would buy again

    A perfect blue-red

    Dear LimeCrime, I was so upset when you discontinued Retrofuturist, and then Utopia - I stocked up on both but really didn't fall in love with any of the other colors on your site in quite the same way. However, Red Rose is absolutely perfect - such a rich and saturated blue-red. I can see how this would have pinkish tones on other people, but my light olive skin turns even some cool-toned reds into orange, so, on me, this is just a beautiful rose red.

    My favorite blue red ever!

    This color looks stunning on my cool-toned skin. I have troubles with reds, but this one is absolutely perfect for me. It wears very comfortably and lasted five hours before I wanted to touch it up. It went on very opaque and was not patchy or streaky at all. It layered seamlessly after five hours of wear and looked so crisp and velvety afterwards. Definitely one of my new go-to colors.

    Not the real color

    The swatch on the web site is gorgeous, but in real life, it doesn't look the same. It's a pretty color, but not what's expected. I love ime crime, but this color stains the lip so much!

    Red Rose is Everything!

    I thought I had enough red lipstick, but I decided to give Red Rose a try. It's beautiful! It has a hint of pink/fuchsia, but it's still very red. It's perfect for the holidays!

    Amazing red shade!

    I LOVE this shade. With my skin, some reds are very extreme, which is fine sometimes...but Rose Red is classy, more cool, and can spice up a look without turning it to 11 if I'm not feeling it. One swipe with this color and it fully covered my lips. Very little product is needed for fully coverage, so this will last a long time!

    Red Rose Velvetine

    I think for my skin tone it has too much blue in it but lovely colour. I am really missing the texture and smell of the original red velvetine from early 2014. I have olive/dark skin and I find this red has too much blue in it not enough orange for a true red. Please make a true RED velevtine.
