Hey everyone! I feature today Anastasia Beverly Hills Catnip and Lime Crime Buffy Velvetines, from the 2 brands I adored in the liquid lipstick world. I bought Anastasia Beverly Hills Catnip a couple months ago but didn’t get a chance to right something about it due to being busy with the holidays and work. Lime Crime Buffy is part of a set of 3, it’s the closest sister to Lime Crime Cashmere. I got washed out with the color when I used this on its own, so I’d rather wear this either to lighten up a dark shade or as an accent.
Lime Crime Buffy Velvetines is characterized as a “buff nude.” It appears as a cool light tan. It lasted for 3 hours of wear which is pretty average for this shade. It is a non drying, non hydrating formula. It never turns flaky even in the driest weather. The formula is very lightweight, almost watery which dries quicker than the average liquid lipsticks out on the market today. It may take some “getting used” if you are unfamiliar with the formula. I prefer using this as either an accent or a shade lightener. It works like a charm on shades that are too dark which can be categorized as “Not Safe For Work” – NSFW shades.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Catnip Liquid Lipstick appears as a warm fuchsia rose. It lasted for almost 6 hours of wear and left a stain which lasted for an extra 3.5 hours. It is also a non drying, non hydrating formula. It also never turns flaky or patchy throughout the day. The formula is more on the creamy side than mousse or watery. It fully dries in about 45 seconds. I love how flattering this shade looks on brown skin. It brightens up my face which is a very effective lip color to wear if you feel dull. Call me “cray” but it actually not only will lighten up your face but also your mood.
The Bottom Line:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Catnip was launched last Black Friday and was believed to be a limited edition shade. There are rumors in the inter webs that it is making a come back sometime soon. Anastasia Catnip is one of the popular and hot shades this season – The Mauves. It is a very dupable shade so if you missed it, no regrets. The closest shade is Tarte Fomo. Lime Crime Buffy is all about and nothing but a “buff” shade in all its glory. Shades like this washes me out. I just look sick wearing them. But these shades come in handy if you wanted to do some magic with other deeper shades which tends to either make you look like you are growing horns, too early for Halloween or simply just Not Safe For Work. Until next time…
