Lime Crime Babette ☆ 6th Anniversary Lipstick Review

Lime Crime Babette Lipstick

Today I am reviewing the Lime Crime Babette lipstick in the Limited Edition 6th anniversary packaging. I have previously purchased Babette from a fellow blogger from the UK and it's one of those products that I tried so hard to make it work for me, but the color just seems too pale and it doesn't suit me.

So I end up selling the old one, and one day I decided to re-purchase it again, mainly for the limited edition packaging. ^^ I know Babette doesn't suit me and I can't pull it off no matter what I do, but the packaging is too pretty not to have!

Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick is described as bold, opaque and recklessly loaded with pigment; and there are nineteen colors to choose from in this range. I already own three of these lipsticks in the original packaging and I absolutely love them! My all-time favourite shades are Countessa Flourescent and Chinchilla.

PACKAGING
Lime Crime has re-packaged a few of their lipsticks to the Limited Edition 6th Anniversary packaging; as you know, I am a sucker for cute packaging beauty products, I had to have this! The lipstick is packed in the same purple tube as the original packaging, on the cap it has two unicorn heads and a few stars printed around the unicorn. On the bottom it has 'Lime Crime' logo printed on with a few more stars around it.

I reckon the packaging of the box is much more prettier, don't you think? Anyway, Lime Crime has done an amazing job! I can't decided if I like the original packaging more or the 6th anniversary one, both are gorgeous, totally girly and very creative!

Babette
Lime Crime Babette is described as a pinky-nude, it looks like a beautiful pale pink-nude shade in their promo pictures; but when worn on myself, it looks off, bleh. I think this would look beautiful on people with a pale skin tone. When swatch on my hand, it is showing as a pretty coral pink shade, I don't understand the color change?!

APPLICATION
Babette is opaque, the pigmentation is just as amazing as the other Unicorn Lipsticks; but the application was not easy, I couldn't apply it evenly, like... it's quite streaky... I heard a few people were experiencing the same thing, a few said the application improves only when apply with a lip brush.

LONGEVITY
I wasn't expecting a long-wearing time for Babette and it didn't seem to want to impress me anyway ~ The lipstick lasted approximately two hours before I have to re-apply again, which I didn't even bother to re-apply. I mean, I did tried to re-apply, but it's very drying and if I wanted to re-apply I had to remove whatever there's left on my lips, do the whole exfoliate and apply lip balm process all over again. It's just a hassle, especially when I forgot to carry a lip scrub with me on the day I wear Babette, the whole thing would just stay patchy. :s

Not sure what went wrong with the making of Lime Crime Babette? First, the color made me looked pale as a sick person :/, then it is very drying! Unlike the other lipsticks from this range, the ones I have tried are all very pigmented, opaque, full coverage, long wearing and very moisturizing!

  3. Awww, I'm sorry to hear about the color and the dryness! I own one lipstick from them, the nude shade but on it's own I'm a dead zombie but it's a perfect shade to mix a pink or brown with for a custom nude color. Yes, I've heard now from a few people that they've found some of their lipsticks to be a bit inconsistent! It's strange. I do love the LE packaging though!
