OKAY so remember how the other day I was saying I was on the hunt for the perfect purple lipstick, and Airborne Unicorn was a candidate? Well, Lime Crime was having a 20% off sale that day so I went ahead and got it. Although it didn't end up being the color I was looking for, I actually really, really like it.
Now, before you get mad at me I just want to say that I'm not one to be bothered by that kind of drama. (If you haven't heard, just google it). If the company had been killing puppies or something then yeah, I'd have a problem with it but whatever went on doesn't really concern me too much. I don't AGREE with how they handled some things, but I would think that since then they would have learned their lesson.
The only thing that ever interested me was their lipsticks (no, not that gross blue one). There's a couple of reasons why I would never buy their eyeshadows. First, they're $14. That's too much. Second, I've seen swatches and while they are pretty, I feel like I could get the same thing elsewhere for much cheaper. Whether or not they are repackaged I can't say because even though they've been accused of this in the past, they never admitted to it. Regardless, all of that is enough to make me pass on the eyeshadows. The lipsticks, however, have interested me for a long time. I kept going back and forth on whether I wanted to try them or not. I'd go "Ooh so pretty, I want." and then "Ehh but they're $16, ehh the company has a bad repuation.." The price is what really put me off. $16 is a lot, it's more than a MAC lipstick. Since it was 20% off though, I thought I'd try one.
ANYWAY. On to the stuff.
HOW CUTE IS THAT BOX? I'm probably going to keep it, because I'm lame like that. My package shipped the day after I paid for it and arrived very quickly.
SEE. Proof that I actually bought this and therefore have no reason to lie about the products. The only reason I'm emphasizing this is because everytime I see a review of this company that's positive, all the comments are like "NUHH U LIE U GOT PAID TO SAY TAHT." I'm sure it's happened, but it's not happening here.
You can't tell me that's not beautiful. I LOVE the color. It's a little more pink than I thought it was going to be but I love it. It's not ridiculous, but it's also fun. I've read a lot of reviews saying these lipsticks are drying. Um, whut. I'm not sure if it has to do with the color or if they changed their formula, but this lipstick is not drying. It's really creamy. I waited to write this up so I could wear it a while and see how it is. It's very moisturizing, actually. I dunno. Again, maybe it's certain colors or maybe they changed their formula.
This isn't really supposed to be a review or anything, I kind of just felt like I should give my opinion on this since the reviews are SOOO mixed. I really have no reason to lie about it, and I would hope no one would think I would do that! I love my readers I wouldn't recommend crap to you guys :D I do understand the people who are against this company too, though. They do have kind of an iffy repuation and sometimes it can just put a bad taste in your mouth. I just prefer to ignore the drama. Take it for what it's worth, but I really like it! I probably won't order more colors anytime soon because I'm BROKE and they're overpriced, but I do not regret this purchase. I hope this helps for anyone that was on the fence about this brand.
