Lime Crime lipstick in Retrofuturist

25. april 2014

Hello hunnies! Today I have another Lime Crime lipstick for you (check out my review of Geradium here). Retrofuturist is my second Lime Crime lipstick and I have to say I'm really impressed with Lime Crime as a brand, so far. Now I'd really like to try some other products from them (Velvetines being the first on my wishlist). :)

The packaging is of course amazing - a purple bullet with a holographic unicorn on it, what more do you want? :) It's not just pretty, it's a great, sturdy packaging that doesn't feel cheap and doesn't open too easily, so your lipstick is secure. Comparing this packaging to MAC's (which I now have, thanks to Aida), this is a bit wider and rounder.

The lipstick itself is absolutely gorgeous! It is a true red color with some pink undertones to it. I was afraid it was going to be too bright or too dark for me, but it turned out to be just perfect. It's strongly pigmented yet has a lovely sheen to it (which slowly starts to fade as the lipstick wears down). I love the slight shine it has, but if you're more of a matte lipstick kind of girl, then you should skip this one.

Because of it's rich formula it does tend to bleed a bit around your lips but despite that it can still be applied without a lip liner and not look terrible at all. :) What I love the most about this lipstick is the way it wears down through the day - the color just keeps getting better and better (more wearable), because it doesn't just fade away, it has great staining properties so you're always left with a bit of a color on your lips. I've worn it for around 5-6 hours without touching it up and drinking in between (probably ate something as well) and the color was still on my lips - it was just a bit more muted and not as shiny. Even my husband complimented my lip color then and he doesn't really like red lipstick on me. :)

I thought I'd put in a picture to show you how the lipstick stains my lips - this is how my lips looked after I had the lipstick on for a couple of minutes (to take the pictures for the blog post). I then removed it with a face wipe (as best as I could) and this is what I was left with... :)

The price of the lipstick is $18 (13 €) which I think is very reasonable for such high quality. :) You can get it off the Lime Crime site, but I've ordered it (and my first lipstick, Geradium) from this seller on Ebay (great shipping costs and I've received both lipstick in around 5-7 days).

What are your thoughts on this lipstick? Do you own any Lime Crime lipsticks (or other products)? :)
