Lime Crime Time!

I don't know what took me so long but finally I have ordered some Lime Crime products and of course I want to show them to you guys! :)

Lime Crime are probably most famous for their lipsticks so I will start with those.

Recently a new kind of lipstick was introduce to Lime Crimes makeup line; the Velvetines. These lipsticks are more like lip glosses in appearance except for one significant difference - they are completely matte! Due to the matte-ness they stay on very well. Believe it or not, I wore Red Velvet for a whole day, through both lunch and dinner, and I didn't need to reapply! Ladies and gentlemen, that sure is worth an applause!

The cons with the Velvetines are that they feel very dry on the lips.

Longevity: 5/5
Texture: Very dry
Price: $16.99 here

Glamour 101 has, except for Styletto, been my dream-lipstick from Lime Crime. My expectations on this lipstick was sky high and I can't really say that I was disappointed with it, but it didn't quite live up to these expectations. The pigmentation wasn't as good as with the other Lime Crime lippies and it didn't stay on as good as I had expected either. I had to reapply twice during my day at work to keep it looking perfect.
But enough with the negative stuff now; the color on this baby is to die for and it is very moisturizing so your lips feel soft and nice.

Pigmentation: 3/5
Longevity: 3/5
Texture: Soft and nice! 
Price: $15.99 here

Like a neon sign Countessa fluorescent will light up your face and send echoes of the 80's through the minds of everyone who has the luck to lay their eyes upon it. :)

Pigmentation: 4/5

Price: $15.99 here

Coquette is a pretty peachy nude with an opaque, creamy texture. 

Pigmentation: 5/5
Longevity: 4/5
Texture: Creamy and very opaque
Price: $15.99 here

And now on to the eyeliners. I very much wanted to try out the one called Blue milk but it was out of stock when I ordered my stuff so I didn't get the chance to do so. The ones I got were 6th element and Orchidaceous, which are both very much to my satisfaction. :)

I can't say that they are as insanely pigmented as Scribe by Illamasqua but honestly, they don't really have to be, they're awesome anyway! You might have to apply two layers to gain the best out of them but that's definitely not any major problem. The colors are awesome and correspond very well to the swatches Lime Crime have provided on their website.

None of these colors are anywhere near waterproof so don't do any advanced makeup masterpieces with them before jumping into a swimming pool, ok? ;)

Pigmentation: 3/5
Longevity: 4/5
Texture: Rather thin but dries into a matte opaque finish.
Price: $13.99 here

Well, that's that for now! :) Have you ever tried out Lime Crime's products and what are your opinions about it?

NOTE: I'm not asking what you think of Lime Crime as a company or of what Doe Deere has or has not done in her past. It was long ago, this "drama" with Lime Crime, and to be honest things tend to get blown way out of proportions on the internet. Besides, everyone can make a mistake. My point; as far as I am concerned Doe is a very sweet and kind woman and until she proves otherwise to me I will continue to believe so. :)

  1. I was a bit leery of Lime Crime (So much drama!) until I won an eye shadow palette in one of those blog giveaways. I was so impressed with the quality of the shadows, that I ended up buying a second palette and a bunch of other stuff. My current favorites are the eye primer, Retrofuturist lipstick & Rhyme & Reason eyeliners. The Carousel Glosses are also lovely. :)

    1. They sure are impressive! I haven't tried out their eyeshadows yet (couldn't decide which palette to get...) but I'm looking forward to do so. :) Retrofuturist is on my wishlist as well. :)

  2. I have appreciated for a long time how hard s to find a creamy lipstick that can simply resist the whole day. I love permanent colours, but they simply feel to dry for me. From your review I understand that it is the same case with Lime Crime. That´s kind of a pity, because Red Velvet looks like an amazing shade.

    1. It is extremely hard to find such a lipstick, and especially a cruelty-free one! Red Velvet is an amazing lipstick though. :)

  3. Muy buenos swatches, los labiales te lucen hermosos :D


  4. Hallå tjejen!!:) skuggorna från mug jag köpte var peach smoothie, cupcake, crème brulee mercury och cocoabear! Älskar dom:) kan du inte tipsa om några andra billiga ögonskuggor? kram på dig!! /Lynn från Åhléns. Lägg till mig på Facebook om du vill! Lynn Jensen!

    1. Hej! :D Aha! De är fina allihop. Creme brule är ju verkligen bra crease-färg. Jag älskar ju Sugarpills skuggor som är billiga men de har mest galna färger. Älskar Inglot men de finns ju bara utomlands så skall du till England eller dylikt är de väl värda att kolla upp. Kram på dig! :)
