Make Up: Lime Crime Great Pink Planet Lipstick.

Lime Crime Great Pink Planet Lipstick* (£11.50)
I feel it would be almost rude to start this post without first talking about the packaging of the Lime Crime lipsticks. The bright pink tube & the holographic unicorn mean it's a definite love or hate, but I'm firmly in the 'ohmygoshitsSOcuteiloveit' camp and I can always find it in my make up collection easily when I'm looking for it, which is a huge plus for me. It's also a talking point; I've been sat in Starbucks casually making sure I've not got any hot chocolate or cookie crumbs around my mouth & touching up my lipstick on several occasions and been asked which brand has such sweet packaging, by total strangers. True story!

I was gifted the shade Great Pink Planet by the girls from Baobella and being aware of the controversy surrounding the brand wasn't exactly sure if I was going to try it. But then I was just plain curious and when I opened the tube I thought, eek I don't think this is a colour that I'm going to be able to pull off. It's a bit of an odd one to describe, it's a almost a muted pink, which sounds lovely and super easy to wear, but there's also a shot of neon in there, which makes it a little scary. It's light and bright and pastel and not, all at the same time.

It has a lovely vanilla scent, reminiscent of MAC lipsticks, which I like because it's simple and not too overpowering. The formula is quite nice, it doesn't feel uncomfortable and it wears surprisingly evenly, which isn't always the case with lipsticks. This is one of those colours though that will highlight dryness because it's quite a light shade and I sometimes struggle to get an even colour if my lips aren't in the best condition. I've been just applying a little over the top of my favourite Blistex lip balm and that way it glides on perfectly and makes the colour a little more wearable for me.

At £11.50 this isn't the most affordable of lipsticks, but it's by no means the most expensive either. Although at first I had a few reservations, I very much think I would repurchase this when I finish it & I'm definitely interested in a few of the other colours in the line!

Have you ever tried a Lime Crime lipstick?
What do you think of this shade?

  5. This colour really suits you! I love the look of the Lime Crime lipsticks but can never justify the price tag. Might have to rethink though because this looks really lovely, plus how can you say no to a sparkly unicorn?! ;) x
