Adventures with Lipstick and Unicorns

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

It's no secret that I'm very, very girly. I love fashion, makeup, and expressing myself with the two. Because of this, I will try out trends and wear fun things like, for example, bright lipstick.
Say hello to my new little friends:
If you're not already familiar with the packaging, these beauties are from Lime Crime Cosmetics. Not only is the packaging amazing (um, holographic unicorns...need I say more?) but the colors I chose are SO pretty. I picked up Retrofuturist and Countessa Fluorescent.

When I was browsing the shades, I figured a classic red would be good to try. I wore Retrofuturist all day today and LOVED it. It's like a candy apple color in person, and it's kind of glossy. It does transfer, though, so I wouldn't recommend it for heavy duty longwear. I have some shades of Lime Crime's Velvetine liquid lipsticks, and oh my biscuits, those last a WHILE.

Countessa Fluorescent is not for the faint of heart. Yes, it shocked me how bright it was, but this is pretty much what I signed up for: an unabashed neon blue-based pink. But the more I see it on, the more I love it. I'm planning on wearing it to a function I have coming up, and I plan to keep my eye and face makeup minimal/natural to balance the lipstick out.
Overall, with the swatches and some wear, I love these lipsticks. They make me super happy, and I imagine their other lip shades are nice as well. They do have some interesting shades that are both wearable and daring, so do check Lime Crime out if you're into adventurous lip colors and other such things. :)
I hope y'all enjoyed this review! I think I want to do more of these with random products I love, so hopefully you'll see more of me playing with makeup on this blog!
