LONG time, no post!
The past few months have been a whirlwind with an awesome new job and a new routine and unfortunately this little part of the internet got left by the wayside. But here’s to getting back into the swing of things!
Purple lipstick, purple skirt!
I pulled this lavender skirt out of my wardrobe to celebrate the incredible weather we’ve had in Perth this week, and matched it with Lime Crime’s Airborne Unicorn lipstick. (I may have also been celebrating how well the curls i got done at the hairdresser the day before held up!)
I love this shade!
I picked up the skirt in an op-shop and I think it was hand-made. I really like the shape — there’s tulle underneath to give it lots of extra poof. I paired it with a black singlet and some sparkly drop earrings to keep things fairly simple because I didn’t want to detract from the lipstick!
This skirt is just so big!
This light purple lipstick isn’t the easiest to work into an everyday makeup look but it’s definitely a fun shade! I’ve worn it before with a nude lip liner but a tinted lip primer (to remove some of the pink colour in my lips) will also help make the colour pop. The brightness did fade after a few hours and needed a second application.
I used Sleek Makeup’s Highlighting Palette – it’s so shiny!
I’m definitely going to work this colour into my summer wardrobe more often!
What’s the most out-there lip colour you’ve tried? Let me know in the comments below!
CHECK out these colours!
I’d been eyeing off more of the Lime Crime collection for a while.
Oh those colours!
Lime Crime Geradium and Poisonberry
Poisonberry is one of the darkest lipsticks I own but it’s got that classic Lime Crime stickability so it stays on without much retouching.
I’ve worn this with MAC’s Magenta lip liner underneath to even out the colour.
I may be a little bit in love with the holographic packaging.
Moving onto the pink!
I usually stick to cool colours because they suit my skin tone more and Geradium is just a tad warm.
That said, it’s a fun, bright colour and still worth giving a go, especially if you’ve got a skin tone that’s darker than mine.
This is a warm pink and may not suit all skin types.
I’ve done a lot of reading about the questionable practices of this business and its founder and although I can see why people don’t want to support it, I haven’t found lipsticks that live up to Lime Crime’s.
As I said in an earlier review of Centrifuschia, it just stays put all day.
What’s your favourite Lime Crime colour?
PRETTY please with a cherry on top!
This Lime Crime Carousel Gloss is something I’ve wanted to try for ages and I just couldn’t go past Cherry on Top, with its bright colour and glittery finish.
Such a lovely colour!
The colour pay-off is pretty good and I didn’t feel like I needed to use half the tube to get an even coverage.
That said, I’d seen other people say it lasts better if you put lipstick underneath it.
I tested this with Tony Moly Kiss Lover lipstick in Summer Orange (for a lighter red/orange) and Australia Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick in Cha Cha (for a deep red).
From top to bottom: Cherry on Top by itself, over Tony Moly Kiss Lover in Summer Orange and Australis Colour Inject in Cha Cha.
Although the difference wasn’t that stark, I think it would stand the test of time and food to have a decent lipstick underneath.
This lipgloss doesn’t feel too sticky (although I’ve yet to wear it out with my hair down and in a strong breeze!) and is a nice change to matte-look lip colours.
This lipgloss isn’t too sticky.
I still want to try the rest of this collection, which includes an icy white/blue glittery gloss (Snowsicle), a deep red (candy apple), a deep purple shade (Present) and, in a shade that’s not for everyone, emerald green (Hollygram).
Keen for more red lip colour love? I wore the deep red Australis lipstick with an incredible black lace dress.
And did you catch my last Lime Crime review? I wrote about the awesome hot pink lipstick, Centrifuschia.
This is a makeup brand I just can’t get enough of!
Have you tried any Lime Crime products? What did you think of it?
I AM absolutely in love with this lipstick.
This is my first purchase from the brand and if their other products live up to this standard, I will be hooked!
I’m not sure if this lip liner was always so tiny? I’ve had it for a while.
The makeup line has been taking stores (and Instagram feeds) by storm with their bold, bright and at times unusual lip colours, including blue and lilac.
I hadn’t tried the Lime Crime range before because I’d only seen them online and was hesitant to try a colour I hadn’t seen in person.
But luckily, I spotted a display in a hairdressers while I was in Melbourne recently and the hot pink Centrifuchsia caught my eye.
I’m really enjoying the bold lip look at the moment, especially since I’ve started using lip liners lately.
I paired this lipstick with MAC’s Prep and Prime lip primer and a Sephora pencil lip liner in Funky Fuschia. (Who else is excited for Sephora to open their first Australian store next month?! I know I am!)
Sephora’s funky fuschia lip liner is almost lovely enough to wear on its own!
This lipstick is creamy and rich, goes on smoothly and keeps my lips moisturised.
The thing I love most is its STICKABILITY.
When applied with a lip primer and a lip liner underneath, Centrifuchsia is not going anywhere, even when you’re eating and drinking.
Lip colour that stays put has been a major draw card for me lately as I was getting really tired of bold lip glosses that just didn’t have any sticking power.
In short, I can’t wait to try the rest of the range — especially since I’m not afraid of using crazy colours!
Have you used Lime Crime products before? What are your favourites?
