The bright purple with the silver unicorn is so so beautiful!!!!! The glossy finish of the lipstick bottle makes it look really expensive so you do feel it’s worth every penny you put in. The unicorn makes me feel like I getting something from the fairytale world. How magical?

I receive two colour which is Great Pink Planet & Countessa Fluorescent. Both colour are from the same collection but have a different consistency when apply on lip.

The Countessa Fluorescent is a cool tone hot pink which gives a creamy matte finishing. It’s a very sharp and bright colour. I have to ensure my face is in full makeup in order to wear this colour. This colour has higher consistency compare to Great Pink Planet but that also means it can be more drier. It can be tricky to apply this lipstick as it also has creamy formula, you need to swipe at on direction so that it doesn’t settle onto you lips line. Most importantly is you have to prep your lip before applying. Scrub your lip and apply lip balm. Then use a tissue to blot excess lip balm right before applying. Also I recommend priming your lip with a light foundation to prepare a nude base. Alternatively you can use a nude lipstick but I find foundation is lighter and does not make the finishing look too thick.

I find this not as drying as those matte lip lacquer but still more drying than my other cream based lipstick. I personally think this colour suit those with fair skin and not too hard to pair with makeup. Just ensure the rest of the face are not too smokey or dark, anything sweet will match this lipstick well. I love this colour as it has a hint of neon over my other lipstick with similar shade. This is like an upgraded colour version of my Wet & Wild Balm Stain in A Stiff Pink or Collection Cosmetic Urbanista Lip Crayon in Weekend Wild. This colour look very light when zoom in but in overall it look less pale in colour.

The next colour is Great Pink Planet which is very hard to pair colour. It’s much much more lighter than Countessa Fluorescent and has more purple undertone in it. It also has more neon effect which look overly bright on my lip. Good thing is this colour is more creamy so not as drying than the earlier one but it can be harder to apply as it will move on the lip which will settle to lines if not apply appropriately.  Also the step to prep the lip as mentioned above applies to this colour as well. Make sure you scrub your lipss.

I love how unique this colour is although it’s hard to play with but challenges can be fun sometime (NOT everytime, maybe not at work). I have not found a nice eye colour to go with this yet… Once I do I shall update here!

All in all I love this Lime Crime Lipstick so much but most point goes to the packaging and the opaque colour. The colour is very opaque, one layer is sufficient but I tend to apply few more layer trying to avoid the lipstick to settle as line. I think this two colour is rather bright so can be hard to apply probably a darker colour will look nicer. I only wear the Countessa Fluorescent out and it last for hours even after eating most of the product is still intact. After a while it can be dry on my lip but not as dry as matte lip lacquer. Well, my lips are really dry and chapped easily so can’t blame the lipstick formula alone. I still find for the colour opacity, the dryness is quite bearable as lip lacquer can be worst.

Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick5 Excuse my dry lip, this is after about 5hours out + eating buffet meal.

They have another 13more colours to choose from including those unique colour like mint, blue, purple and black.So i kinda apply few more layer to smoothen the finishing. Sad thing is this is not available in Malaysia but I believe you can purchase them online or start a Beautyswap with someone from USA like I do. Wanna know how you can join a Beauty Swap? Full guideline here. So any of you own a Lime Crime Lipstick too?? Let me know in comment below.. Got to go muackksss
