Anyway, onto my haul post. Just before Christmas I made a small purchase of Lime Crime goodies from Makeupnet (super speedy delivery!) I bought two nail polishes and a lipstick from Lime Crime.

Lime Crime nail polish in Milky Ways
I feel the name describes this shade perfectly. It's a creamy, milky off-white colour that looks great without giving you mannequin hands. Unfortunately the formula of this one was a bit streaky and it chipped the very next morning that I wore it. In the picture below I'm wearing 3 coats and you can still see the streakiness. I used this shade as the base for my glittery holiday manicure (tutorial HERE). AUD $9.99

Lime Crime nail polish in Once In A Blue Mousse
This is a gorgeous pale Tiffany blue shade. It's not particularly unique, but if you're after a pastel blue this is a great option. You can get opaque coverage in either 2 thick coats or 3 thinner coats. I've got 3 thin coats on in this picture. Lasts about 4-5 days without chipping when worn with a topcoat. AUD $9.99

Lime Crime lipstick in Airborne Unicorn
I'd been after a cool toned lavender lipstick for some time now (don't ask me why, I just knew there was a gap in my collection), so this colour looked perfect based on the swatches and photos I saw online. Unfortunately it's a lot cooler and a lot more neon than it looks in photos so I'm not sure I'll get much wear out of it. Also it stains my lips big time! Once the lipstick wears off it leaves a really bright pink stain behind which is very very hard to remove. The only thing that gets rid of the stain is to use an oily eye makeup remover. Oh and for some reason the colour makes my skin and teeth look yellow. So yep, not happy with this particular shade. AUD $19.99
Have you tried anything from Lime Crime? Do you know of any wearable lavender lipsticks? Let me know please as I've got it in my head that I NEED a lavender lipstick and I won't rest until I find one.
