Lime Crime Uniliner in Citreuse - review and swatches

December 22, 2012


The lovely Michelle from Lipstick Republic included this little gem in my last Lipstick Republic order (see post here), I have praised this company a lot in my posts because they stock products that are hard to get in Australia, they sell them for great prices (usually matching the US prices) and shipping is super fast... check out the website here and enter the code RepublicVIBs for a 10% discount.

Onto the product, so this is a Lime Crime Uniliner in the shade Citreuse, which is a neon yellow with a slight hint of green. I have been meaning to order some of these from the Lime Crime website, but I was quite reluctant because shipping from Lime Crime isn't cheap... Luckily I have found a local supplier! If you aren't in Australia then I would recommend you check these out at the Lime Crime website. These uniliners also comes in white, baby blue, royle blue, orange, fuschia, black, gold and silver and retail for $15.99 each.



As with all of Lime Crimes products, a lot of effort has been put into making the packaging amazingly cute. I was really impressed that they also went to the effort to even colour the inside of the box and it matches perfectly to this shade of liner.


This liner is significantly smaller than normal liquid liners (see first photo in this blog to see how it fits in my hand), but that doesn't bother me too much, because I can't imagine that these bright shades will be used on a daily basis, so a small tube will still last you a long time.


The applicator is a thin brush, which ensures that you can apply a nice thin line.

This is almost opaque in one stroke, but tends to thin out at the end of the brush stroke. I found when applying it, if you apply a few layers then it can start to crack, so I would recommend that you apply this in small strokes so you don't need to apply more than one layer. This also dries matte, and this paricular shade looks neon on the eye. I really like it!



And as per usual... please check out my current giveaway!
