Review: Lime Crime Styletto & Glamour 101

It's been a while since my previous Lime Crime review, back then I also reviewed their lipsticks, Styletto and No She Didn't. Even though I'm still aware of all the gossip and drama around this brand, I base my review on the products, not the brand.

I was again contacted by them, and this time I got 2 pieces from their latest collection called Lip Noir. 
Unfortunately one of them was Styletto, which I already had. The other was Glamour 101, which was a new one. I would have loved to try the gray one called Chinchilla, but I've heard that they have some troubles to get it stocked or something. Oh well.

In my previous LimeCrime review I was impressed of their shipping box. This time my lipsticks came in a normal brown cardboard box. I don't know if they still use the custom boxes when you order something from them and I don't say that there's anything wrong with normal brown boxes, I just wanted to mention that, because I was secretly waiting for a cute box :D

Anyway, the lipsticks haven't changed from the outside.
Still the same pink boxes with unicorns:


And pink tubes with holographic unicorns:
(I haven't been able to view them the same way after a friend of mine noticed these tubes on my table, and asked me why I'm  storing my VIBRATORS on my table.)

So the lipsticks.

Glamour 101:
Ok, first of all, it's red.
World is full of red lipsticks, what makes Glamour 101 so special?

Nothing really. But on the other hand, who said it should be special? I guess LimeCrime just wanted to add red lipstick to their line.

Since the collection is called "Lip Noir", which refers to "old times". This isn't anything wild or crazy, this is quite classic, elegant red. I wouldn't call it pinup red, but I could call it vintage red.

This is more darker and brown than any of my previous red lipsticks:
Loreal Infallible Beyonce, OCC NSFW, Illamasqua Faust & Sangers, Palladio Cosmopolitan, BeautyUK Vampire and LimeCrime Glamour 101
It stays well, it's not dry and it doesn't stain lips.
Again, for me it works very well, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. :D

And as you can see, it also looks good on lips:

Interesting enough, it looks totally different depending on the lipliner you use it with:

On the left there's NYX Cabaret as a liner, on the right NYX Deep Red.

Annyway.

Styletto:

I know I have reviewed this earlier, and my opinions haven't changed.
It's still opaque, it still stains dry parts of your lips, it may feather a bit if you don't use liner.
It still works bloody well on my looks when I need to have black lips.

I really wanted to include Styletto in this review because I got a new swatch pic of it:

That's all folks!

PS. LAST CHANCE TO ENTER ILLAMASQUA COMPETITION!!

  4. Glamor 101 is best one. To be honest another one (Styletto) is not looking too good on your lips. Anyways, you are beautiful lady.
