Recreating Aishwarya's Cannes look Using a 2$ Lime Crime Velvetines Dupe !! Review, Price, FOTD

Hallo Lovelies....
Now that the fashion world is going gaga over the Cannes Red Carpet looks ans Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is receiving compliments (less) and criticism (more)..
I couldn't stay untouched and unaffected!!
This you guys is my first ever attempt at recreating a look so pardon me if you find things a lil' off :P ;)
I found her second day look as the best out of all and thus thought to give it a try!!
For putting up the look together, I hunted my stash high and low. Few lip colours had a similar shade but the matte texture was lacking..
And finally this Lime Crime Dupe in Wicked came to the rescue!!

I don't have an original Lime Crime so I cannot compare it with the real one. BUT guys...this is aaahhhhmmmaaaazing!!
It glides on smoothly, applies super creamyand dries to a matte fininsh. Its pretty similar in texture and pigmentation to the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams or the Miss Claire Matte Lip Creams. 
These are highly pigmented and the staying power is awesome..5plus hours easily! 
It does mention the ingredients and rest of the details but I cannot vouch for their reliability since they are dupes only.
The shade Wicked is a mix of deep maroon with brown undertones..kinda oxblood...I know that's confusing but that's how it is :D
And this is how it looks on me!! 
I got mine from Ali Express but these are available here through Facebook and Instagram sellers at a much much higher (more than double) price.

It was a first attempt..hope you liked it :)



  1. Incredible ADITI di.. You nailed it :D

    1. Thank youuu sissy.. I was a bit skeptical posting it to be true :/

  2. My god...so gorgeous... what are you eating these days..share some secrets for glowing skin.. And that shade is great..I wish like a mattifying nail paint top coat there was a mattifying topcoat for lips also.

    1. Agni I'm actually eating a lot these days.. weight gain,better skin..lol
      And yeah that mattifying top coat would have given all the matte lipsticks and lip creams a run for their money.. superb idea!!

  3. You look super gorgeous and the lip color is awesome.

    1. Thanks for dropping by Maya and I'm glad you liked the look and product!

  4. The color is beautiful dear. Please tell me more about Ali express, did you pay any customs duty ?

    1. Thanks Shampita and no they offer free shipping on most of the products though it does take forever to reach us.

  5. Are you kidding? You just look hotttt! Rather, breathtakingly hot! When I saw the snippet in my dashboard my first thought was 1. She is unfairly beautiful. 2. This is the closest I ever saw.

    You should do more of these Aditi.

    1. You have NO IDEA how happy your comment has made me Nivs..
      I was actually pretty hesitant to post this but now I guess it turned out okay :)
      Thanks is too small to say :D

  6. Awesome... nailed it...loved the look and thank you for dupe :)


I would love to listen from you and will surely reply you back :)
