Review : Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick (Babette & Geradium)

Hello beautiful people.

If you are a beauty Youtuber fanatic and you have your dinner in front of your laptop watching makeup tutorials by beauty gurus, you most likely would have known how Lime Crime lipsticks are being used in heaps and heaps of tutorials. I get so hooked when the beauty gurus talk about mutual products repeatedly that I practically need to clean my floor afterwards cause it's flooded with my drools. 

My biggest influences have always been my fav beauty gurus, Nicole Guerriero & Jaclyn Hill. Seriously these two beauties can be the ambassador for EVERY cosmetics cause they make EVERYTHING looks beautiful that you are so convinced you can't breath another second without having them.

So anyways, I went to Lime Crime's website and was glad to find that they do ship internationally even to Malaysia at a flat rate of $10.95 (~RM37). I knew in my heart that I need to get my lips on 2 shades, Babette & Geradium. Geradium was available but as for Babette, being one of the most demanded shades, of course it was sold out at that time. Surprise surprise. I didn't get Geradium yet cause I didn't want to waste money on the shipping fee for one tube of lipstick. See? Self control. 
*flips shawl*

So I entered my email to be notified when Babette is back in stock. After almost 2 months later, I got an email notifying that Babette is available to be purchased online. Tunggu lagi? Memang gedebuk gedebak pelepuk pelepak terus order both Babette & Geradium. Nampak tak? Laju kan? 
Self control? Girl, I don't understand a word you're saying.

After 2 weeks++, they finally arrived at my doorsteps. Haaaaaaa~ (that's an angelic sound over there).

First of all, the box itself wins my heart. When I opened it and saw the unicorn & polka dots print with a neat and bright green wrapper inside, I went all "awwwwww". Pfftttt. Woman. Who says they are so hard to predict?

How cute is that? I love how meticulous and attentive Lime Crime is even down to it's packaging. They do understand how the tiniest thing like fancy bright wrapper can make woman goes all squealing in excitement. 

Like I said previously, I bought 2 lipsticks in Geradium & Babette. They cost $18 each (~RM61). 
They come in soft purple tube with hologram unicorn on it and they have a sweet vanilla scent which the same, if not stronger, as MAC lipsticks.

To me, on the first glance it looks like a toy lipstick. Haha. But that's what makes its so unique. The tube is not your typical sleek black or gold color, and you definitely can't find a unicorn lipstick anywhere else. You pop open your lipstick and people can recognize it from miles away.
 "Yeah girl it's Lime Crime alright" *snaps fingers*

(L-R) : Geradium, Babette

Indoor swatches:

Under direct sunlight:

Babette ~ 

Babette is described as a pastel coral color. It's a beautiful peachy nude with slight sheen formula. It is super super pigmented and creamy. However, while everybody is saying how smooth and easily Babette glides on their lips, I find quite the opposite. One swipe gives the utmost pigmentation but I find the application is a bit jerky. The formula of this lipstick is very thick and somehow it has kinda waxy feel to it.

But fret not, it is still an awesome lipstick. I find its best to blend the color with your finger once you have swiped it on the lips to give a smooth blended look.

Geradium ~ 

In the website, Geradium is described as a coral pink that is so intense, it might just be radioactive. And they weren't kidding. Geradium is a really unique neon coral color. It's intense and bright that it stained my lips even when I wiped it off with wet tissues. When I was wearing this color, I felt so anxious cause I felt like a bomb squad is gonna break into my house any minute to disable my lips. Haha.

I find Geradium is a tad bit easier to apply than Babette. Pigmentation and texture wise, the BOMB.
*please don't break in through my windows*


Application : 3/5
Like I said, it feels kinda waxy and thick. The application is easy but not that smooth to apply.

Pigmentation : 5/5
Super duper pigmented I tell you. Gives full coverage with one swipe.

Texture : 4/5
The formula of the lipstick is not flat matte, but it's not so glossy as well. It has slight sheen to it and if I were to compare to MAC's lipstick formula, it's in between matte & cremesheen.

Longevity : 4.5/5
Stay put for 5-6 hours and left a stain on the lips even after wiping off.

All in all, I love the unique colors of Lime Crime lipsticks. I think it's almost impossible to find dupe for these lippies. Would love to try other colors next time.
