Lime Crime Lipsticks Review + Swatches

Are you one of the brave gals who love to sport BOLD lipstick colors?

We'll this is the brand for you, Lime Crime

Developed by the  Makeup Artist and Unicorn Queen, Doe Deere.  Their mission is to create "fashion-forward shades with unmatched color payoff" (which I can testify to!). Currently, they have 15 shades of opaque lipsticks to choose from that will fit your every mood & fantasy. haha Transform your look from a doll with Great Pink Planet shade to a Goth with Styletto Shade. That's how wide and quirky the choices are.

The packaging is, something your eyes will not miss in a pool of lipsticks. This matches their mascot, a unicorn, serves as a symbol of individuality and freedom of expression.

From Lime Crime Website...

Say goodbye to sliding, fading and sheer-ness with our best-selling opaque lipsticks. Recklessly loaded with pigment for maximum impact, these beauties offer unparalleled coverage in a rainbow of statement-making shades. Creme formula is smooth, non-drying and lasts for hours. Each lipstick comes encased in the signature purple tube adorned with a sparkling unicorn.

Apply directly from the tube or with a brush. Due to high pigment load and creamy texture, these lipsticks are softer and more delicate than others, please keep them away from heat and be gentle when applying.

H I T S :
  • INSTENSE color pay-off.
  • Less touch-ups needed as they last on your lips for a good 4-6 hrs.
  • In some shades, a little swipe goes a long way.
  • Super cute packaging.
  • They ship worldwide.

M I S S E S :
  • If you will buy directly from the website, this is a bit expensive than MAC Lipsticks($15). 
  • Packaging is a bit bulky looking.
  • If you wan to apply a different lipstick within the day, this may require makeup remover as various shades really stain.

Each lipstick retails for $15.99 from the Limecrime Website exclusive of shipping and tax duties.  And good news, they do international shipping. But if you want to get yours hassle-free, please check Starmaine Cay on Facebook. 

If you are unsure which shade will fit you, please refer to the Lime Crime Visual Lipstick Guide

DISCLAIMER: Yes, Starmaine Cay's owner is my one and only sister love. I won't hide this from you. This does not solely mean I am promoting her shop and products purely for business. As I am only promoting products I believe in, something that's worth writing a review for. I personally own 2 shades of these lipsticks bought with my own money. The lipsticks I reviewed are personally owned by my sister lent to me for swatching purposes.

Starmaine Cay is having a CLEARANCE SALE right now (inlcudes NYX, Barry M, Lime Crime, etc.). Grab the opportunity to purchase your most wanted stuff for a fairly low, low price. Happy Shopping!
