I havn't blogged in a while because i have been away on holidays in Western Australia...but i am officially back into it as of 2day :)
before i went away, i recieved my Lime Crime order so i thought i would share my thoughts on this brand that is very new to me...
so this is the box that my order arrived in, i thought it was a really sweet touch
i am covering my address there :)
i was so excited i un-wrapped it real quick and made a mess of it :)
i loved how the items came wrapped in tissue paper so they wont be ruined in post!
so here is the packaging of 3 lipsticks and 2 eyeshadow dusts
here are the beautiful eyeshadows i ordered and they are SUPER pigmented if you wear them on top of an eyeshadow primer ( a primer is what you put on first and it creates a base so that your eyeshadow will last all day without creasing or fading)
these colours are
these are the lipstick cases with the cute unicorn on them....the camera is washing out the colour a bit..its actually more on the purple side
it also says lime crime
the 3 colours i recieved were
these are swatches of the 3 colours...only 1 swipe of each so you can really see the colour pay-off!!
the purple one is a real true purple...and when it fades on my lips im left with a pinky colour! the red one i havnt had a chance to wear on my lips yet...but i can say its super pigmented and wont come off easily!!
the red is meant to be a true red as in it isnt blue or orange based (cool or warm) so it should suit any skin tone....personally i think it has more yellow in it...it seems more like a warm red but in saying that people with a cool skin tone could still wear it and it isnt a full warm tone (hope that makes sense)
the pink is prob my favourite out of the 3...its like a barbie/bubblegum pink and once again is super pigmented!!! and it LASTS SO WELL!!!
that is something i have noticed with Lime Crime products, they last really well and the colours are very bold!!
which is a fact that I LOVE :)
just if you have dry lips like me, make sure you take it off really well and put some sort of a lip balm on at night and sleep with it on!!
I dont really have any good pics of me wearing them yet.....i really need to invest in a better camera so that the colours are more true!!
here i am wearing Great Pink Planet
i will make sure that when i wear them over the next few weeks i will take photos so you can see them on!!
hope you liked my review and yes i do Love Lime Crime and will definately buy more from their website!!
oh and another thing, i found out you can purchase them from an Australian website as Lime Crime stocks to them, but i dont really understand why you would...as on the Lime Crime site their lipsticks are $16 (US) and on the Aussie site they are $22 (AUS)...but at the moment our dollar is almost equal and it only took 1 week to arrive from America...so seriously i would recommend going to the official site for purchasing!!
Lots of Love
