Celia Leslie can do what I cannot. She can actually wear twenty-four very different colors of lip color; she looks fabulous in every color. If you are familiar with Lime Crime, like me, you will know that they have some very bold colors. Cement, Peacock and Beet It, are all exactly what I thought they would be. The names are almost as fun as the colors they represent. Velvetines lip color is a color that is applied like a gloss and then dries into a gorgeous matte. One of the things that I like best about this video is that the colors went on really easy and evenly without a lot of layers.
I liked Shroom the best. I like the throw back to the 90’s shades of brown. I could wear it at work because it is a great neutral. The Shroom color of Lime Crime’s Velvetine lip color would go great with heavily lined eyes and a flannel shirt in a total throw back to the nineties look, or with just some foundation and a bit of mascara for a real natural look. Teddy Bear is in a similar scheme, but has more of a pinkish purple undertone, I think it would look better to go out on a date. It is more romantic. Thinking to the holidays, Wicked is a great red. Add a bit of eyeliner and I would be very sexy for a party!
I like that Lime Crime thinks of their customers as unicorns, all of us different and bright. And this fall, Doe Deere, the CEO of Lime Crime and the “Queen of the Unicorns”, announced that they will have hair dye! Mixing and matching makeup and hair dye all on the same web page. I am excited about this new chapter in the book of Lime Crime. Pay attention to further announcements by following them on Facebook, or even browsing their Twitter page.
