I've been a fan of Lime Crime's Velvetines for a few years now. I remember purchasing my first tube of Red Velvet after it had first been available to purchase in Australia stores (official stockists) hoping it would be the perfect red lipstick for me... and boy was I right! As Lime Crime introduced each new colour to their Velvetine range; first Suedeberry, followed by Pink Velvet, then along came Wicked, Salem and Black Velvet, I had to buy and try each and everyone of them. Naturally, I was very excited to finally pick up their latest release yesterday afternoon, Utopia.

Utopia is Lime Crime's answer to a bright purple Velvetine and I couldn't be more impressed with the colour and durability of the formulation. As per usual, the formula is nice and thin, quickly drying and very, very matte. I've found the formula of Utopia to be a lot more pleasant to apply then the three previously released colours. The formula has definitely changed over the past few releases but this seems as close to the original as I could ask for. 

As you can see, Tayla (pictured) got her hands on my tube of Utopia before I even considered wearing it. I think the colour looks incredibly flattering on her and wold suit all skin tones. I'm still a little wary of wearing this one out myself as I think it looks a little weird with my lighter hair. I definitely think if you have pale skin that having slightly darker hair would suit Utopia a little more- but that's just my personal qualms and I'm probably just being as fussy and self conscious as always.

Sunglasses- Tony Bianco
T-shirt- Zimmerman

That's all for today! Thank you for reading, love Maddie xo
