A little while back Lime Crime kindly sent me a care package filled with a range of different Lime Crime products, in that package included a range of her lipsticks that I’ve heard of much about (especially the blue lipstick).
These lipsticks are pretty unique on their own, it’s not often you come across a brand that has bright blue or bright purple colours in their range. That aside, these lipsticks lean on the drier side. If you are prone to dry lips, then I’d recommend you apply lip balm before hand.
The pigmentation is incredible, the colours are extremely rich. And the lasting power is intense, so much so some of the deeper shades will leave your lips stained well after removing them from your lips. That’s really a personal preference, I personally prefer having my lips stained because it means I don’t need to worry too much if my lipstick rubs off. Of course you need to be careful with application to ensure you don’t end up looking a bit like a clown.
These lipsticks are not for everyone, these aren’t a range I would wear day to day to work or going out, mostly because I prefer lipsticks that lean sheerer and provide more moisture.
No She Didn’t
However, these lipsticks are perfect for photo shoots and cosplay. That was instantly what I thought when I tried these out for the first time, this would be amazing for my cosplay photo shoots because my lipstick would remain on, it wouldn’t budge and I wouldn’t need to worry about all the things I do on a shoot aka hair sticking to my lips, lipstick fading half way through a shoot etc. These lipsticks are very long lasting, so they would perform amazingly well at a day long convention.
If you need a long lasting lipstick that will remain picture perfect all day, then give these a whirl!
