Hello beauties, I have been a huge fan of Lime Crime for years now, they can’t be beat when it comes to packaging and I love their creative ideas as well as their great quality products. So when they advertised their newest product release I squealed a little.
Lime Crime have released lip glosses that have a high shine finish without the sticky feeling and I knew I had to get the bright red one ‘marachino cherry’, they’re 12 shades to choose from including glitter glosses that you can layer over a matte lipstick to give a glittery finish.
Lime Crime are redefining shine – and we want one in every colour… Glistening like a maraschino cherry, this ultra-glistening gloss imparts the ultimate wet-look, light-reflecting shine in 12 spectacular shades, from opalescent ‘Disco Cherry’ to vampy berry-hued ‘Black Cherry’. There are two finishes to choose from too – ‘Juicy Sheer’ gives a translucent burst of colour while ‘Sparkly Sheer’ is packed with iridescent pearls to light up lips. Whichever shade you choose, the formula feels lightweight and comfortable, leaving sticky, heavy formulas stuck in the past. Time to pucker up!
Once again Lime Crime boss it with their packaging but that doesn’t surprise me. It comes in a ever so girly sturdy plastic tube with foil print fancy text and cherry design. I love that the doe foot applicator is larger than their Velvetines liquid lipstick as it makes for better application.
The first thing I want to mention is how gorgeous this smells, as you can imagine it has a cherry scent to it but with a warm sugar smell added, basically like a freshly baked cherry pie. The texture is smooth and has a almost oily look to it but has the same thick consistency that most glosses have meaning it won’t run down your lips after application. It was extremely easy to apply and makes your lips looks so plump and juicy whilst being hydrating. Damn when this hits the light it looks stunning, this particular shade doesn’t have any glitter in just sheer pigment for a glassy high shine look.
I didn’t have high hopes for this being ‘long lasting’ as it is a gloss without the tacky feeling, as soon as I ate or had a drink it came off straight away but I find that with all glosses. However it’s so easy to reapply that this isn’t a problem if you have the time and opportunity to do so. It’s also super comfortable to wear.
This costs £16 for 2.9ml which is why I only picked up one! I think it’s quite pricey for a lip gloss that’s not long lasting but it just looks so damn beautiful on the lips with dewy skin that I definitely don’t regret buying it and I will be picking up a few more shades when my budget can allow it. If you’re interested in buying you can find this gloss here.
I will be filming a look soon for my YouTube channel with this so keep an eye out for that!
