Lol, I always have to photograph the packaging because it's so pretty that it'd be a waste not to. I have a hard time throwing it away...hehe.
Ok, first up Airborne Unicorn, described as: "Medium violet-purple with a neon note."
Such a pretty shade of purple! I've never had anything like this before, so I was so excited when I got a chance to try it. :D First off, let me say that the color is really hard to capture on camera. The hue is actually more opaque and a touch pinker in person. Sure, the photos don't look bad, but trust me, this color is 10x more gorgeous in real life. I guess Airborne Unicorn is so vibrant, my camera can't handle it, lol. On another note, I've never felt comfortable wearing purples, but for the first time, I feel like I've found a purple lipstick that compliments my heavy yellow undertones as opposed to clashing with them. Yay! I'm so anxious to create some cool looks with it in the near future!
Next up, My Beautiful Rocket which is described as: "True, luminous orange without red undertones."
Yep, that's orange. Well, actually more of a tangerine. Whatever, I LOVE it! (like Airborne Unicorn, my camera had a hard time capturing My Beautiful Rocket, it's a bit redder in the images than in person) I seldom see orange worn as a lipstick...or as makeup in general. People go nuts over nudes, peaches, pinks, purples, reds...etc. In my opinion, orange seems to be a forgotten color. I just love how nicely it compliments my southeast asian complexion. It's so vibrant and intense! I feel totally fab in it. I'm actually going to a girlfriend's birthday dinner tonight and at first I had reservations about wearing MBR out because it's soooooooo outside of the norm, but my husband assured me that I look great in it, so why not? If anyone doesn't like it, they don't have to look at me, right?
My final thoughts? Both lipsticks are smooth, creamy, and quite opaque with satiny finishes. The colors are amazing and they smell like vanilla sugar cookie batter, IMO. Yum! I'd like to note that, while Lime Crime lippies aren't cheap, I feel like I'm totally getting my money's worth because the shades are so outstanding and unique. Head-turners for sure! If attention isn't your cup o' tea, these are definitely not for you! I'm so addicted to these lipsticks, I can't wait to add more to my collection and am currently considering what other colors to get! :D Check 'em out:
Creative colors put me in such a good mood! Happy Monday and hope you all have a great one!
