***CLOSED*** Review and Giveaway! Lime Crime Lipstick review - Cosmopop, My Beautiful Rocket, Airborne Unicorn, Retrofuturist and Glamour 101. Giveaway of Airborne Unicorn

November 8, 2012


I am finally getting around to swatching my Lime Crime lipstick collection, and I decided that while I do this review, I may as well make it a little giveaway. I am giving away a Lime Crime Airborne lipstick, so keep reading this post to see how you can enter!

I'm sure you all have heard of Lime Crime, it is one of the brands you think of when you want colourful makeup. All of these lipsticks are in the permanent line, but often Lime Crime will come out with limited edition colours of lipsticks, which can include yellow, blue, and currently the two limited edition shades are shimmery dark green and shimmery dark purple... No surprises that I am very interested in getting my hands on the purple. You can buy these lipsticks (and other makeup) from the Lime Crime website for $15.99 each plus shipping, or if you are from Australia you can get them at the Lipstick Republic website for $19.99 each, but shipping is much cheaper, and use the code RepublicVIBs for 10% off your purchase. Lipstick Republic also sell the Lime Crime nail polishes, which the Lime Crime website doesn't ship internationally. Each of these lipsticks contain 3.5g of product.


So the shades I have, and the colour descrpitions given on the Lime Crime website are:
  • Cosmopop - Buttery, softened orange - think creamsicle
  • My Beautiful Rocket - True, luminous orange without red undertones
  • Airborne Unicorn - Medium violet-purple lipstick with a neon note
  • Retrofuturist - Bright, true red that flatters all skin tones
  • Glamour 101 - Dark, retro-red

You can't do a review on these lipsticks without mentioning the cute packaging. These lipsticks are in a nice purple colour (pretty similar to the Airborne Unicorn shade) and they have holographic unicorn designs on them. The lipstick packaging is slightly bulkier than the MAC lipsticks.

You will see from the swatches that all of these colours are very opaque in colour, and they all have a nice sheen to them, so none of these are matte in finish.

These do tend to stain, which I personally like, but other people may not like. This is what the staining was like after a minute or two on my arm.


Lets see how these look on the lips, and excuse my bad lipstick application, clearly I'm not very good at applying lipsticks at 9am, but you get the idea...

Cosmopop
My Beautiful Rocket
Airborne Unicorn
Retrofuturist
Glamour 101

Each of these lipsticks have a thick creamy texture, and they don't dry out your lips. They also last a good 3+ hours without eating. I personally like that they create a bit of a stain, because I find it makes the colour wear off in a nicer way. The oranges and the purple shades have a white base to the colour, so not only does the colour pop on your lips, but they are much more opaque than the reds. The reds are more sheer in texture, but are very pigmented and can produce a very vibrant colour. You would be able to apply the reds more in a more sheer manner to create more of a stain look, but you wouldn't be able to do this as well with the white based colours.

My favourite two lipsticks out of these shades are Airborne Unicorn and My Beautiful Rocket, I think they are a stunning true purple and true orange lipstick that you can't get anywhere else. If you have the confidence these are such fun summer colours, and I have had many compliments on Airborne Unicorn. I also really like the reds, they are very wearable, but you can get a nice red anywhere. Glamour 101 does look slightly more brown toned on my lips compared to the swatch, and I find Retrofuturist to be quite a pink toned red. I really wanted Cosmopop to work for me, but it doesn't suit my colouring and makes me look a little unwell, but it is a stunning colour if you can pull it off. Cosmopop is the only colour that you need to really exfoliate your lips for, it is not very forgiving with dry patches, but a simple exfoliating before applying makes a world of difference.

Ok so giveaway time! I have decided to give away a brand new Airborne Unicorn lipstick. This giveaway is open internationally, to people who are 18 or over. It will be open for a month, and you can enter once a day!

  5. Super unusual shades! I like Airborn Unicorn but I get the feeling with my skintone it would look pretty bad. All of them look great on you though :)

  12. I'm yet to try a lime crime lipstick but I might add retrofuturist to my next modcloth order (they only selling that and one other shade though), I've been lusting after it for a while now. My beautiful rocket is another great shade! I'm not game enough for airborne unicorn though, even though it looks lovely (and I better let someone else win this one).

  18. Awesome shades! I like the orange and purple as well - very unique and vibrant :) I think Australis came out with an orange lipstick a while ago - Limited Edition 2 I think it was called?

    I'd like to see more tag posts - I think they're really fun to read :)

  19. I haven't actually tried any Lime Crime Lipsticks but I do have their Carousel Lipgloss in Candy Apple which goes amazingly with Glamour 101 (my friend owns them both). So I would have to say that Glamour 101 would have to be my favourite because of how well it goes with Candy Apple. The Carousel Lipglosses smell like cake mixture too - added bonus.

    I would love to see more Tag posts, just like I am sure many other people would .
