Lime Crime: My Beautiful Rocket Review!Friday, April 04, 2014
Did you know that orange is one of the spring 2014 makeup trends? It was in fashion a little while ago and now it's hit the make-up shelves. As you may or may not know, my favourite colour is orange so I more than welcome this trend!
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me free of charge. My opinions written here are my own and have not been influenced nor am I being paid to review this item.
I've never tried any of Lime Crime products before, I wasn't particularly interested in the brand until recently. I knew they had some really cool looking lipstick colours but I once read that the pigmentation was so high that the formula in turn made you lips dry! So I backed away from it. HOWEVER, after trying it myself I have to completely disagree with that review.
Formula: Not only is it not drying, it's actually one of the most moisturizing lipsticks I have. It glides on with ease and although I do apply a second layer after blotting, that's because I have horribly chapped lips and it just looks better that way (pro tip: applying a second layer (or more!) after blotting with make your lipstick last longer!)
Packaging: Who was in charge of this? I'm not sure whether or not I think it's a child or adult toy. I hate it. I don't like the sparkly, holographic print thats spread around the tube. It definitely stands out in my kit, that's for sure!
Pigmentation: Perfect. It's highly pigmented, a BEAUTIFUL shade of orange (the name holds true). I can't say anything else about it because it's just that good.
SCENT: It smells like vanilla, my MUA instructor said it reminder her of her MAC lipsticks. I'm indifferent but I know scents aren't for everyone. I so would have loved it they made it give off a citrusy scent instead of something sweet but I imagine that's what they were going for as the brand itself has sweet looking packaging.
Overall: I would most definitely get the other shades. I think this is not only a great addition for my make-up kit (looks wonderful in photographs) but it's also great for the average gal.

DEAR CANADIANS: If you know me, you know I am an avid online shopper but I HATE paying for shipping. I find Canadian shipping rates to be less than ideal and generally there is a higher minimum order amount for free shipping HOWEVER, ObsessedCanada.com offers FREE SHIPPING ON EVERY ORDER within Canada. Um, hello, yes please!!
The lipstick can be found here. I had a really hard time choosing this, I kept going back to airborne and poisonberry buuut since I have similar shades I opted for something new to try!
I really want to try the velvetines lipgloss now, it looks delicious! I'm really considering getting some soon since now I don't have to pay shipping!
