Here it is people, the Lime Crime review. I was so excited to use these lipsticks and see if the colours could possibly be so vivid. I had the perfect opportunity this weekend on a quirky Barbara Cartland-themed shoot. I used the following two craaaazy colours (just loving the names too):
The texture of these lipsticks is quite waxy, which means they feel lovely on the lips. The colour is exactly like the images and really OTT, which I love. I found I had to apply them quite carefully with my lip brush in a patting motion as side-to-side painting caused the colour to separate a bit. After a little getting used to I had no trouble removing and re-applying at speed. I also mixed them together for the final look and achieved an amazing lilac that was unusual and quite lovely. The finish of these lipsticks is quite plastic (in a good way) and you can mattify them if you blot and powder the lips with a translucent face powder.
Before applying the lipsticks I lined the lips with Illamasqua pencils in Manic and Debonair.
