My Lime Crime Lipstick Collection

I only just started collecting Lime Crime lipstick about a year ago now. My first one I ever purchased was the well known Coquette, I love this one so much. I started to purchase some more and then some more and then some more. Now to this day I have 11 Lime Crime lipsticks.

They are all highly pigmented and they all have a smooth application. The staying power is incredible, I wear these lipsticks to work. I usually apply them at 9am and the colour is still visible by 3pm, this also includes eating. They could probably last longer but I always get dry lips by this point and I remove it.

I’ve applied all the lipsticks to my lips, so you can see how they look, as well as swatches on my arm and the bullet itself.

Sorry for the bad application, these are all straight from the bullet, I didn’t end up using a lip brush.

(Same order as swatches)

The only downside is that in Australia they retail at $23 each. But I did purchase a few through the US website when they were having Black Friday Sales, as well as some Australian online clothing stores that stock them for $21.

I also have found them on Urban Outfitters for $18 USD and if you spend over $50 USD, they will ship to Australia for free. 🙂

All I have to say now is that Lime Crime lipsticks are the bomb.

Thanks. 🙂

Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th of May, I worked along side ‘The Girl In The Green Scarf’ to do the makeup for the models of the One Fine Day Wedding Fair Bridal Show. This was a great experience for me and absolutely loved it, the dresses were divine.

There will be an advertisement on Foxtel’s Lifestyle You Channel with these models to promote the next fair in Sydney, so look out for it. 🙂

Welcome!

I thought for my first post I would just say a little bit about myself and introduce what I’ll be adding in the future. I am a full qualified makeup artist and have been doing makeup professionally for the past 7 years. The past 5 years I have been mainly doing wedding makeup, I love weddings as I get to see so many different flower arrangements, many different dresses and accessories options. Most weddings I do, I work along side Julie Dammery from Beautique Creative (http://www.beautiquecreative.com.au/) and also Rebecca Paris from The Girl In The Green Scarf (http://www.thegirlinthegreenscarf.com.au/). Working with these wonderful ladies have really made me progress in my career as a makeup artist and they have taught me many different things.

For the rest of the post I’ll be doing will be arrange of things, like makeup of the day/night, outfits of the day/night, reviews, weddings I’ve worked on, and many more.

Hope you all enjoy. 🙂
