Finally, here it is! My review of Lime Crime's lipsticks! This will be a review of the product only and not about any of the controversy with this company. I don't care about any of the controversy, I only care how the product preforms, which is the most important thing.
I should have said this in previous posts, I am still learning how to
take good pictures of swatches, products and packaging. I am also not
able to use my really good camera at this time so my pictures aren't the
best. Please be forgiving, I haven't been doing reviews with swatches and such for all that long.
I own 3 Lime Crime lipsticks in Retrofuturist, Centrifuchsia, and Poisonberry.
Lime Crime lipsticks come in this box:
The names of each color are at the bottom.
Here is Poisonberry. Don't let the color in the tube deceive you. When applied, Poisonberry is a beautiful and flattering berry color. It is very buildable so you could probably build up the color to get a deep purple.
Top to bottom: Retrofuturist, Poisonberry and Centrifuchsia. Retrofuturist is a bright true red, not orangy. The Poisonberry swatch is pretty spot on and the Centrifuchsia looks a tad bit different.
I love these lipsticks. They are very creamy and pigmented. I am very impressed with the staying power, they last most of the day if not all day without reapplying. They also leave a stain behind which I love.
They smell like vanilla, but the smell isn't overpowering. As I mentioned with Poisonberry they are very buildable, which is nice when you want a subtle color.
Lime Crime has so many different lipstick colors, many in colors that you won't normally find such as yellow and green. I do plan on getting another one of these as well as some other Lime Crime products. Lime Crime has a very good range of products which you can find at http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/ .
I own almost all of the Lime Crime nail polishes (I need 2 more!) I have not tried them yet, but once I try one there will be a review. I am dying to try the new Velvetines in Red Velvet as well. Hopefully soon or after the holidays I will be able to get one and have a review of it.
