My First Lime Crime Order! Lipsticks and Nail polish.

16 Dec

Hi everyone! About three weeks ago on Cyber Monday I put in my FIRST order at Limecrime.com ever. I was sooooo excited! It took three weeks to get here, I’m assuming because its the holiday season, and It was everything I hoped it to be. Even though some people choose not to order from them I didn’t find anything wrong. So if you’re considering ordering from them I suggest you do! they have great, vibrant vegan lip products, nail polish, eye shadows, and soon will be adding face products.

I ordered 2 Unicorn Lipsticks, 1 Velvetine, and 1 Nail Polish.

The first things I took out of the package were the two Unicorn Lipsticks. I bought Babette and Coquette. Both are very pale pinks, one with a slightly more peach tone and one more true pink. Each one was $18.00. A little pricey, but I think its worth it because they glide on and are fairly opaque.Β DSC_0014

Next I opened my Velvetine. I was VERY excited to open this because I have never used one before! I bought their Velvetine in Cashmere. It is a mix between grey and beige as Lime Crime calls it “Greige”. I feel like it also has a slight pink hue to it as well. I bought this for $20.00. Very pretty color! I will probably be buying more πŸ™‚DSC_0004

Last I ordered one of their nail polishes in Once in a Blue Mousse. I bought it for $8.00. Not bad. I’m not going to show you a swatch because I already have nail polish on and It looks like its opaque and shows up the same as it is in the bottle.DSC_0013If you want to know anything else about these products let me know! I have quickly fallen in love with this brand and I plan to order from them again soon. Whats your favorite lime crime product? I’d love to know!

Fresh Spring Manicure!

12 Apr

Hey guys! I got a nice manicure for myself as a treat for dealing with this long winter. The brands I used were Essie and OPI. I usually opt for something cruelty free like Zoya, but they didn’t have any! The Essie color is in Play Date, a fun springy pastel type purple. On my ring fingers I got OPI’s DS Radiance, a VERY shimmery silver.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I think its supposed to be warm and sunny here in D.C. for a while, wishing it stays here!

My Valentines day nails: Zoya in Dot

17 Feb

Hey everyone! hope you guys had a great valentines day! My nails are just a simple light pink I got in my February Ipsy bag. This is by far my favorite pale pink polish. It goes on smooth, stays shiny without a top coat, and actually doesn’t wash me out πŸ™‚

ZoyadotHave a good week everyone! stay warm!

Zoya nail polish in Lauren

16 Jan

Hey everybody! Since i’m getting ready to go on a road trip tomorrow to myrtle beach, Sc (8 hour trip from where i live in Maryland) I thought I would show you the polish i’m wearing! I chose to wear a pinkish nude because I wanted to wear a color where chipping wouldn’t be as noticeable (since i’m not packing any polish).

photo 1The color I’m wearing Is Lauren by Zoya.

Favorite Fall nails by Essie: The Lace Is on

30 Sep

Hey everybody! I hope you guys are having a good fall! I’m so happy to finally start to see the temperature drop, the leaves turn golden, and the fashion come out! I am in LOVE with the Essie fall collection right not. They go on nicely and have a great color. My favorite one is The Lace Is On by Essie. It is a shimmery purple polish and looks great on all skin tones. I put on my favorite base coat (OPI Nail Envy) then put two thick coats onto my nails. I prefer thicker coats of polish because I feel like it gives more of a “salon” look. Have fun playing around with the fall colors!eiise1eiise2

Butter London Mani in Slapper

23 Jul

This is one of my favorite polishes! this brand in general has such great polish! Its smooth, pigmented, and has a smaller brush ( I like this better that thicker ones) The color i’m wearing is named Slapper. It is the perfect teal. I got mine at Ulta for $15.00, a little pricey but worth it! I also recommend their nail strengtheners and cuticle treatments! I would love to hear what your favorite butter london colors are!

The fourth item I got is a small organic facial moisturizing sunscreen by the brand COOLA. I have incrediply fair skin, and turn into a lobster after 10 minutes in the sun, I know. I love this for three reasons. 1 because its organic. 2 because its unscented. and 3 because its Cruelty free! Nothing bad about it!

These last two items I got are the same items everyone else got. The lip crayon is the Pouty Pop Crayon by POP. I got the color Coral Crush, which is great for my skintone! It goes on very well and has a great color! The sample is the BHCosmetics California Collection sampler of eyeshadow. Love it! The three colors you get (Gold, Brown, and Purple) ave very universal colors and go on smoothly! They blend well too :)
