Lime Crime Bleached, Riot, and Wicked


I know there are tons of reviews already out there but I thought I share with you my thoughts about this much hyped liquid lipstick from a make-up newbie perspective! Liquid lipstick is some sort of revolutionary thing for me since I usually use traditional lipstick which is a much easier item to use. If you're not used to it, liquid lipstick can be tricky to apply.

So I heard about Lime Crime around two years ago from a friend who is a make-up enthusiast, but at that time I stick to my good ole lipstick because I just wasn't really into make-up. Now that I'm trying to be more excited about make-up, I decided to get one and first, I chose Bleached, which is a new shade, I believe. It's the softest prettiest nude pink and it's the easiest to apply from the all three I have.


Trust me, I want so bad not to like this one because I feel like it's too hyped up (and expensive!), but it was love at first trial. I had LA Girl, Colourpop, OFRA, and The Balm liquid lipsticks before I purchased Lime Crime and this one is definitely worth the money. It's completely matte, not drying at all (well, compared to my LA Girl and ColourPop), and kiss-proof. I've worn it all day and I had a snack and a lunch before I have to touch it up just a little bit, and very minimum feathering at the end of the day. You can guess already, I got another two, one in Riot and one in Wicked.


Formulations are very consistent throughout all three shades. I like the applicator too, it's narrow but not too narrow and it's very smooth. Wicked is the trickiest to apply because it's so pigmented that just a little bit out of the lip could ruin your around lip area. I can't really choose which one is easier to apply between Bleached and Riot . . . I'd say it's Bleached but it's a close match with Riot. Oh, Wicked dries faster than the Bleached and Riot too somehow. Also, Wicked requires two to three layers to completely cover my lips. First layer, I can still see my real lip color, on three of them, but for Bleached and Riot, I'm good with just two layers.


I use natural lighting from my window so it has a slight yellow-y tone. I adjusted the Bleached photo' color balance in Adobe to make sure the color photographed is close to the real life. Riot and Wicked photographed pretty much very similar to real life. From all three, my favorite is Riot. Bleached is a tad bit too "natural-looking" for me. Wicked is a tad darker than I expected... It almost looked like brown-ish red. I have yellow to neutral undertone so when purchasing, do bear in mind that lipstick colors are different on everyone.

Anyway, here's a summary of my review.

Easy to Apply : Yes on lighter colors
Drying            : No
Matte              : Very
Kiss-Proof      : Yes
Long-wearing: Yes with minimal drinking and eating
Repurchase?  : Yes on lighter colors

I very rarely wear dark colored lipstick because I have thin lips so dark colored lipstick just not very flattering on me. I am thinking to get Red Velvet shade tho.. I have OFRA in Atlantic City but it's not kiss-proof and it feathers after I had a meal, it lasted quite well with snacks tho. I am thinking to review OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick and The Balm Meet Matte Hughes Liquid Lipstick because both are also really good products with more affordable price than Lime Crime.
