So the other day I was looking on the App Cute by Wish and had bought some of the Lime crime Velvetines ( which is a big mistake do not do!) After believing I was not going to get my dupes I ordered another batch from Ebay. The next day the one from Cute arrived and all the colors were the same color of pink and smelled horrendous. A month later I received the ones from ebay, to be honest as I opened them at first I thought I was going to be very disappointed but I was pleasantly surprised how pigmented and how close to the colors they were!
On the Left is my arm with the colors that I got from Ebay in the photo, but as you can tell The colors are very very similar but is it spot on? Let's See.
- Cashmere original is lighter than the dupe, the dupe is just a bit darker.
- Shroom is honestly spot on.
- Riot is a bit more reddish in the dupe, though it's more pigmented in the red side it's not as bright as red velvet and wicked.
- Salem is almost just as the photo but a bit darker but pretty spot on!
- Last but not least, Faded the original is very close to cashmere in the muted color aspect but the dupe unfortunately is not very close.. I would say maybe it's a mixture of cashmere and utopia, that isn't really a bad color.
Now for the pros and Cons:
- Color is very very close
- Very pigmented
- Packaging and the bottling looks just like the original
- Kiss pecks proof.
- Must apply translucent powder on the lip glass in order for it to kind of become matte, also will be very sticky if you do not do this.
- Drying, unless you wear chapstick before hand.
- Does not last more then four hours unless you do not kiss or eat.
- removing is difficult, you must use lotion to help remove it.
- Long shipping time.
So in the end I do say yes, I believe this is worth a buy if you want to see how the colors of the actual Velvetines would look on yourself for only $2 a piece, and would I buy more colors? I believe I would, even thought the wait is a bit unbearable, I just pretend once I get a package it is a surprise gift from a far away friend.
