Lime Crime: King of Liquid Lipsticks

4/05/2017


My makeup ways are known to be on the natural side and that's something I'm getting even more into as I'm getting older. Minimal makeup is my jam almost all the time. But if I want to change things up a bit and wear something more attention-grabbing, then I'm almost exclusively reaching for a good lipstick. Matte liquid lipstick trend hasn't rubbed off me as much while it was at its peak as my lips are always dry and flaky so applying such a mattifying product on them wasn't appealing. However, on a whim, I've given this cult liquid lippie a go - and in a shade which wouldn't be described as "me" at all. It was an impulse purchase but one of the best ones!

When my first Lime Crime Velvetines Matte Liquid Lipstick ( 2.6ml | $20 and currently on sale for $12 at limecrime.com) arrived, I was immediately impressed by the packaging. It's simple alright but the cap truly makes them look different and original. Then I've noticed the slight vanilla scent and how runny its consistency is - be careful with tilting it as it will drop and ultimately stain your carpet (we used a degreasing spray to get it off ours!). Lime Crime kills it with range of colors and finishes so it's safe to say that there's something for everyone. Quality of their liquid lippies is unparalleled as I've tried a few from different brands and nothing comes close. 

They apply thin which is a good thing since you don't end up with a thick, clumpy layer on your lips after it dries. And when it dries, the matte lipstick is completely matte - but not as drying as others I've tried. I can't say these are hydrating but the matte effect truly is the most comfortable one. The pigment is fab, application completely even, there's no rubbing off, no bleeding and longevity so good that these leave competition singing "another one bites the dust" somewhere in the background.

As for colors, Cashmere is that perfect mauvey-grey-beige which doesn't make complexion dull yet it looks kinda edgy and natural at the same time. It's absolutely amazing! Buffy, apart from the fab name, has the most flattering warm-brown undertone I've ever come across. Faded is the romantic plum-lilac version of Cashmere and sooo feminine. While all three appear similar or at least as a grey/brown/lilac version of the same hue, I find them all necessary. I think they're the best liquid lipsticks out there and you can bet that I'll be purchasing more shades.

  • Moje šminkanje je oduvijek bilo prirodnijeg tipa a, kako pomalo zalazim u treću životnu dekadu, upravo je prirodan način šminkanja ono što mi sve više odgovara. Minimalan makeup je moj đir. Ali ako želim da odstupim od toga i unesem neku promjenu, da na licu sa samopouzdanjem nosim nešto što privlači pažnju, onda gotovo uvijek posežem za karminom za usne. Trend tečnih karmina mat završnice me nije uspio pridobiti čak ni kada je bio na vrhuncu. Od njega me odvraćala i činjenica da su mi usne gotovo uvijek suhe i perutave tako da mi se nanošenje matirajućeg proizvoda na njih uopšte nije činilo kao dobra ideja. Ali (kako to inače biva), jedna impulsivna kupovina jedne potpuno atipične nijanse karmina je učinila da se moje mišljenje promijeni. Ko kaže da impulsivnu kupovinu uvijek požalimo?
  • Kada mi je isporučen prvi Lime Crime Velvetines Matte tečni karmin ( 2.6ml | redovna cijena je 36.50KM a trenutno su sniženi na 22KM na limecrime.com) odmah me dojmilo pakovanje. Iako jednostavno, detalj poput čepa će ostati upamćen pa je efekat dosta originalan. Potom sam primjetila blagi miris po vaniliji i kako je formulacija dosta tečna - obratite pažnju da ne iscuri jer kada umrlja tkaninu, teško ga je skinuti (mi smo na tepihu koristili kuhinjski odmaščivač!). Lime Crime je apsolutno fantastičan po pitanju izbora nijansi i završnice svojih karmina pa se stvarno može pronaći nešto za svakoga. Kvalitet njihovih karmina je ono čime su mene pridobili i upravo kvalitetom su superiorni u odnosu na ostale proizvođače.
  • Ovi karmini se nanose u tanjem sloju što je dobro jer nakon sušenja na usnama neće ostati gusti sloj proizvoda. Nakon što se osuši mat završnica je uistinu mat - ali ni izbliza ne isušuje poput ostalih tečnih karmina. Ne bih mogla reći da hidratizira usne jer to nije tačno ali je formulacija stvarno ugodna. Pigmentacija je fantastična, nanošenje potpuno ravnomjerno, ne preslikavaju se, ne zavlače u borice oko usana a trajnost je opasna i zasjeniti će sve ostale karmine na tržištu.
  • Što se boja tiče, Cashmere je savršena kombinacija mauve, sive i bež nijanse koja neće ten učiniti beživotnim a istovremeno izgleda zanimljivo i prirodno. Fenomenalna nijansa! Buffy, osim što ima super ime, također ima i najprirodniji topli smeđi podton koji sam ikada imala priliku da nosim. Faded je romantična verzija Cashmere nijanse uz dosta lila-šljiva podtona i veoma je ženstvena. Dok sva tri karmina djeluju kao siva/bež/lila varijacija iste nijanse - ja ih sve smatram neophodnim (samoopravdanje, level 1000). U svakom slučaju ih smatram najboljim tečnim karminima i možete se kladiti da će u moju kolekciju uploviti još nijansi.
