Limecrime Haul

IMG_2751

Hi sweeties

Todady’s post will be about ‘Limecrime’, Limecrime is an American cosmetics brand mostly known for their liquid lipsticks, the ‘velvetines’. They also sell eyeshadows, haircolor,… everything is bright and colorful, their logo is even an unicorn (love it).

First of all, before I start with this review I wanted to let you guys know that Limecrime is a cruelty free vegan cosmetics brand, this is one of the great advantages about this brand!

So, I placed an order on 25/05, 2 weeks later I received my package. The great thing about Limecrime is that even though the products come from America, you don’t have to worry about duties and taxes because they’re prepaid by Lime Crime. (This counts for everyone living in: AU, NZ, FR, DE, BE, NL, ES, DK, HK and UK.)

There was a crazy sale (-75%!) and I saw this as the perfect opportunity to finally try out some lipsticks, since I’ve been dying to try these for such a long time! I did a great deal and I’ll show you the products I got right now!

1. Velvetines – Polly

First one, and my fav one, is a purple shade called ‘Polly’. I really love the packaging, it’s soo pretty! I’m obessed with this color it’s nothing like any other purple color I already had. And trust me I have a lot of purple lipsticks in my collection!

2. Velvetins – mini set: champagne

The second thing I bought, is this cute set, it comes in a cute box and has 3 mini velvetines; it’s called velvetins. The one I got is called; ‘champagne velvetin’. These are soo cute and easy to take with you, the colors are very pretty. There’s one nude color ‘Lulu’ and I feel like it’s the perfect nude for everyone! The other 2 colors are a little more daring, they’re metallic, but also very nice for a special occasion.

3. Perlees – Charmed

And the last one I got, is a metallic purple shade called ‘charmed’ also very very pretty. It’s from the ‘perlees’ collection and again the packaging I just can’t, way too pretty!
This one is not liquid, just a regular lipstick, but it’s also from very great quality.

Time to show you guys some swatches and how they look on my lips:

Conclusion:

I really really really LOVE these lipsticks, they are soo pretty and longlasting! The liquids are the ones I’m the most enthusiastic about, I’ve already tried a lot of different liquid lipsticks and I’m not easy satisfied, but these are soo light weight and from great quality. Definitely one of the best ones I’ve tried till now.

I’ve already worn Polly and Lulu, and trust me they survive a drink and even some food! They are quite pricy but you can always score a deal like I did, when they have offers. They do it quite often so just keep an eye on their website or if you can’t wait order yours now!

So, that was my review about this lovely cosmetics brand!

Naked skin concealer vs Catrice liquid camouflage

Hi sweeties

Today I’m going to write a review about the ‘Naked skin concealer’ from Urban Decay and the ‘Catrice liquid camouflage concealer’ in which I’ll also compare them with each other.

Packaging

IMG_8393

So first of all, let’s start with the packaging. I feel like both products  look  alike and that Catrice’s packaging is quite nice for a budget brand! The packaging is nice and it’s easy to use.

Efficiency

Both concealers work well for me. They do what they promise to do, and the pigmentation of both concealers is great. For the Catrice I use the color ’20 light beige’, and for the Urban decay one ‘light neutral’. But overall, I feel like the one from Catrice blends in better with my skin and foundation.

Thoughts

To be honest, with concealers, you often find the best ones in drugstores (ain’t lying!).
Even though I heard a lot of positive things about the ‘Naked skin concealer’, it’s not one of my biggest favorites.

I’m not saying it’s a bad product, but for the price I had expected maybe a little bit more of it! Overall, I really love the brand Urban Decay, and always have positive things to say about their products. But I feel like this concealer is  not worth the price.

It may seem strange but I like the one from Catrice better than the ‘Naked skin concealer’. The color is perfect for me. I use it under my eyes, with a beauty blender (always make your beauty blender wet with water or spray) and top it off with Catrice’s translucent loose powder (which also is a very nice product!).
With this little trick, your concealer won’t move or crease, all day long!

Overall both products are of very good quality, but I feel that in regard to the price difference buying one from Catrice is the better option,  because it’s really cheap (3,49€) and the naked skin concealer costs you (24,65€).  But I also think the color from Catrice is just nicer on me and blends better with my foundation. I think that’s the main reason as to why I like the one from Catrice more.

What are your thoughts about these products (in case you have one of them)? And are there other concealers you would recommend?

Let me know in a comment!
