Yesterday was my birthday (21..ahh old) and me and my Bf went on a shopping trip and one of the things he bought me was some Lime Crime lipsticks which as you may know already have recently been launched at SpaceNK.
Now with all the controversy spreading over the web of the repackaged eyeshadows Doe Deere of Lime Crime sells on her website. I still decided to pick two of the lipsticks because I love the colour range and I don't think it would be possible that the lipsticks are repackaged as I'm sure SpaceNK wouldn't sell them. :)
Strange enough only the lipsticks are available at SpaceNK.
Each lipstick costs £14.00 and there are 10 daring shades to choose from.
Packaging- Is really nice and some have been comparing it to the long ago MAC Heatherette collection. I have two lippies from this collection and I can see a few similarities but nothing major.
Lime Crime's lipsticks are bigger and fatter with much more of a purple pink shade, featuring unicorns.
Texture- A little dry probably because they have too much pigment in them. :)
I have heard that some of the shades are more moisturising than others.
I was expecting it to be a little like MAC's Amplified lipsticks. You do have to remember to exfoliate the lips before applying which I didn't do and maybe a lip balm underneath. I reckon Nivea's Light Kiss would be perfect.
Scent- A vanilla scent like MAC's but lighter and there's no horrid taste to the lipsticks.
Longevity- Colour wears very well and leaves a even stain which I like.
(Sorry for the small lip pics ahead as it looks pretty atrocious as I didn't prepare my lips as recommended by Doe Deere)
D'Lilac- Pure milky lilac with no pink undertones at all.
No She Didn't- The Brightest milky blue, just like the colour of Bubblegum Ice-Creams you got from the Ice-Cream Van. I do think it would look better on me mixed with black lipstick, so I might give this a try.
Miss Sporty's Punk It Up! Lipgloss over No She Didn't- Doesn't wear as well, probably because the gloss is too slippery!
