I got them at last!

There has been a lot of hype around the company Lime crime. On their website the company is described as:

‘IF YOU LIKE TO LIVE UNAPOLOGETIC ALLY, LIME CRIME IS FOR YOU. WE ARE AN INDEPENDENT TEAM OF MAKEUP RENEGADES FROM LOS ANGELES, COMMITTED TO PRODUCING THE MOST KICK-ASS, TRUE-TO-COLOR, CRUELTY-FREE COSMETICS.’

With their quirky purple packaging which features a unicorn motif and lime crime written on the side it really appeals to any lipstick fanatic. You can find some unique and different colors in the range different from mainstream makeup. This is what makes Limecrime pretty cool.

The lipsticks have major pigmentation and a matte finish on the lips. They don’t feel drying when on however you must work the lipstick in when applying to get a truly full coverage look. Everything about this brand i love! You can be as wild or conservative as you like and totally express yourself.

The texture of these lipsticks feel thick on the lips if you apply too much some of the color wipes off in places when building. The color is true to how they look in the bullet. If worn consistently you would need to use a lip balm.

The range consist of quite a few different lipstick  colors you wouldn’t find on the high street. I have 8 of the colors which i think are all pretty wearable. On the website there are yellow and blue lipsticks too, i wanted to wait to see if i like the textures first before buying the crazier colors.

Below are close ups of the colors and swatches on my lips enjoy…

BABETTE 

The color is a light brown based nude, the lightest nude in the range and great with a smokey eye. I love this one and coquette which is below for a day to day nude.

AIRBOURBE UNICORN

A bright true blue purple tone, i have been on the lookout for a great purple tone lipstick after falling in love with MAC lavender whip. Airbourne unicorn is slightly more blue tone and richer in color. Love this!

COQUETTE 

A light orange based nude. This is slightly darker than BABETTE but on the same tone. Is a great nude on medium skin tones and very flattering.

GERADIUM

This is a bright almost luminous pink which is great worn as a statement lip  paired with neutral eyes. One of a favorites for a hot summery day.

COSMOPOP 

More color than BABETTE this is like a pastel orange but it comes off bright in real life. I love this shade for summer and is a unique lipstick.

D’LILAC 

A light grey purple tone which looks almost blue on the lips. This is quite difficult to wear as it could drain your face. A lot of blusher and bronzer is needed to rock this lipstick

CHINCHILLA

This is a light grey toned lipstick, which is one of the most unique colors from Limecrime. Great for a Halloween or editorial look

POISONBERRY

This is a deep berry color and one of my favorites. Its great going into autumn/winter and i will be rocking this color a lot. It did go on a little patchy so i would wear with a berry lip liner underneath.
