The original trio the pitch Black Velvet, bubblegum Pink Velvet and true Red Velvet have since expanded into a range of 29 shades that last hours through talking, drinking, eating, singing and laughing.
Their best selling Venus palettes, which started the reddish grunge rage with pigmented, buttery shadows in glitter, shimmer and matte finishes, are a cult get. They've expanded the range to include the giant Venus XLpalettes that offer gorgeous colour stories for a huge range of looks.
One of Lime Crime's most exciting offerings is their award-winning Unicorn Hair Colour range.

Along with muted mixers and pastel toners, you can create unique hair art and paint your rainbow mane!
Lime Crime's Unicorn Hair dye is a gentle and conditioning semi-permanent formula that will slowly fade with washing so the amount of time it lasts will depend on multiple factors. It will stay brighter for longer if you've pre-lightened your hair and you can keep it as bright as possible by washing with colour shampoo and conditioner, rinsing in cold water and extending times between washing with dry shampoo.
Velvetines are super easy to apply but there are a few things you can do to ensure a perfect pout! First, apply a lip scrub to ensure you have a smooth surface. Next, apply the Ghost Veil lip primer to smooth your pout and create a canvas for your lippie. Next, line your lips if you like with a Velvetine lip liner. Finally, apply your Velvetine in smooth strokes starting from the middle and moving out to the corner.
