We LOVE Lime Crime vegan lipstick so much we can hardly stand it. Seriously, just look at these colors! First, there’s the “normal” Unicorn Lipstick if you can call anything with colors like My Beautiful Rocket and Airborne Unicorn normal. Second they have Carousel Gloss for all you lip gloss fans. And third there are the matte Velvetines lip stains which can boast one if it’s colors being THE #1 best selling lipstick on Amazon.
The cases are sturdy and adorable. They feel good in your hand and you don’t have to worry about them slipping while you are applying your lipstick. And the packaging this product is shipped in is to die for! So cute and colorful with the little poka dots and unicorns.
This company has had a few up’s and downs in the last year, having their site hacked and all, but they have sorted all their woe’s and are back on track which makes us happy campers indeed. But still, we like to put your safety first and that is why we link only to products available thru Amazon because we know shopping with them is safe and secure.
Ok, enough of me rambling, let’s to look at some lipstick!
Lime Crime Vegan Lipstick
Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick
Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick goes on so creamy and smooth it’s kinda scary. They feel good on your lips and more importantly STAY PUT! We find that most colors are good for at least 5-6 hours sometimes more. Of course that assumes you are not chewing your lips or anything silly like that.
Also note that some colors feel slightly different from others so you’ll have to decide for yourself which is your favorite. This is because of the pigments each color is made from giving it a slightly different texture.
One last thing you should know about Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick is you can wear more than one at a time. Yup, you can blend them together to form “lip art” if you are up to the challenge.
Lime Crime Carousel Lip Gloss
Lime Crime Carousel Gloss
For that ubber wet look you gloss girls crave give these Lime Crime Carousel Glosses a try. They are very thick so you won’t need to apply more than one coat to get the color intensity and look you are after. Not “sticky” like some lip glosses, this one goes on smooth and feels good. You should note, to give you ultimate “sparkle power” Carousel Gloss contains a very fine glitter which you can feel this a little but it’s not distracting or uncomfortable in the slightest
Bear in mind, this is a lip gloss so it isn’t going to have the staying power that a lip stick has. You will need to touch it up a few times a day. But since it only takes one coat at a time it will still last much longer than ordinary lip glosses.
Pro Tip: To make sure you aren’t accidentally walking around with “bare spots” on your lips. Wear a coat of Velvetine Matte under your Carousel Gloss.
Lime Crime Velvetine Matte Lipstick
Lime Crime Velvetines
Lime Crime velvetines are a cross between a lipstick and a lip stain. They go on like a liquid or a gloss and dry to a beautiful matte velvet finish. As die hard lipstick fan as I have been over the years these Velvetines have won me over. You just can not beat their staying power. Trust me, these babies don’t come off on either your fork or your boyfriend! Color that stays on your lips until you take it off. You gotta love that.
Here’s a pro tip for you. If you want the staying power of these Velvetines but aren’t so keen on the matte finish here’s how to shine them up without losing your staying power. Apply your Lime Crime Velvetine color of choice to your lips. Let it set up (in other words let it dry). Then apply a thin coat of Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick on top. Both will stay put forever and you’ll have a creamy sheen to your lips.
Though if you are going to give “lip art” a go I would recommend you stick to the Unicorn Lipsticks above because they blend much easier. That’s not to say you can’t blend these Velvetines into a rainbow on your lips just that it is MUCH harder to do well. If you get out there and prove me wrong please send photos! We’ll post’um and make you a Rock Star!
Psst! See the color “Cashmere” just below? That’s the #1 best selling lipstick on Amazon that I told you about earlier. Just sayin 😉
