HAUL & REVIEW: Limecrime Lippies!

Good morning darlings! I'm finally back at work! It's been a good week off, but now it's back to business! Before getting into this haul & review, I wanted to give you all a heads up with what will be going on in the next few months. As of this past week, a close friend, her fiance', & I have agreed that we will all move in together within the next few months. I couldn't be more excited to do so! They're such amazing people to take me on with them. Now, onto the blog post!

I was lucky enough to have to opportunity to purchase some Limecrime Opaque Lipsticks thanks to my mother. I had been eyeing them up for at least & year now. Can I just tell you how over the moon I am about these lipsticks? I highly believe that at least 1 of them with be with me where ever I go. Before we go into the colors, let me give you some information on the Limecrime line:

- They have an extensive line of opaque lipsticks, glosses, palettes, loose pigments, polsihes & eye liners.

Check out how adorable the packaging is!

Ah, the packaging of the lipsticks are just as cute!

All my lippies in a row. <3

I've never seen a line I've wanted to complete more than this line. I already have the entire polish collection as well as Suedeberry, which is one of their two Velvetines. ( If you all would like reviews on either one of the products I currently have, please feel free to leave a comment below! ) Now, let's get on to the lipsticks I received. I'm going to start from lightest color to darkest color.

First up, we have my favorite, Coquette.

A basic nude color. What I like about this one is the way it looks on my lips. Other nude lipsticks tend to make my overall made up face look off, so I started to not wear nudes as much, but this lipstick looks amazing on me. It's even my boyfriends personal favorite on me.

I love this color. I literally can't stop wearing it.

Next up, Babette, which is Coquettes pinker cousin.

Slightly more pink than Coquette, this color also looks rather amazing on. It's not as pink as I'd hoped it look on me, but it's still very beautiful. Another favorite of my boyfriends as well ( he has a thing for nude lip colors on me ).

It's almost hard to tell the difference between the two on my lips.

Here's a comparison of Coquette & Babette.

I could only successfully capture the difference in color if I took the picture with flash. Coquette is on the bottom. Babette above it.

Next, Geradium!

A bright, hot pink lipstick. I though this was going to be "hotter" on, but maybe if I use a white base under it, it'll come out brighter.

I do really love this color. 

Lastly, I have Countessa Florescent!

Beautiful, blue-based PINK. Like BAM IN YOUR FACE pink. 

I can't get enough of this color either. Bright lips for the summer is my new thing.

Overall, I definitely love each & every one of these lipsticks in their own way. They aren't drying at all, but a good pre-lip scrub will help with the application & keep it from looking weird. I ended up wearing Geradium before using a lip scrub & you could tell that I needed to exfoliate my lips. Let me say this again, these lipsticks aren't drying, they just dry to a more matte look that tends to show off your un-exfoliated lips. 

I, for sure, will be purchasing from Limecrime again. Shipping was extremely fast. I ordered on a Thursday or Friday & received the package within the next week. Website navigation is easy peasy! 

5/5 for awesome, cruelty free, opaque lippes!

I really hope you've enjoyed this review.
Hope you have a wonderful day, have an even better one tomorrow.
