Side by Side Comparison : Mac Viva Glam Nicki 1 and Lime Crime Makeup Geradium Swatches

Brands: Lime Crime Makeup vs MAC Cosmetics

Colors:  Geradium (Left) vs Viva Glam Nicki 1 (Right)

Viva Glam Nicki vs Geradium LimeCrime

Although both colors are fairly similar, under close inspection there is a clear winner.  Lime Crime Makeup’s Geradium is slightly darker than the brighter Viva Glam Nicki 1.  Although both are definitely awesome pink lippies, Geradium is the less neon of the two. They are both fairly creamy and hydrating in consistency, and wear for about the same amount of hours.

Which do you love more?  The slightly darker Geradium or the bright Viva Glam Nicki 1?

Makeup Superstars of Summer: OCC Lip Tar Stained Gloss and the new Lime Crime Makeup Lipstick in Babette

With summer comes amazing new makeup! Super fun colors, lovely textures and super easy looks for those blazing summer days. But what are we going crazy for this summer?  The fun lip! So here are some of the lipsticks and lip glosses we should all be looking forward to :

1. Lime Crime Makeup Opaque Lipstick in Babette – Lime Crime is known for their amazingly pigmented lippies and this July we get to meet what they describe as “coquette’s pinker cousin.”  The color is a beautifully rich pink-nude and as with any Lime Crime lipstick the color is completely opaque, the formula is hydrating and smooth, and the color is PERFECT for summer.  Wear it alone with perfectly dewy skin or throw in a sexy smokey eye for a night out!

2. OCC Makeup Lip Tar Stained Glosses – The wait is ALMOST over for one of the most anticipated releases from one of the ultimate indie brands, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.  The Stained Gloss collection will be the sister collection to the wildly famous and acclaimed lip tar collection.  Anyone who owns a Lip Tar will tell you just how much they swear by it and from the looks of it, the Stained Glosses will live up to their hype as well.  The glosses will be sheer but buildable (not completely opaque), their texture will be silky and non-sticky ( thank goodness for that) and the glosses will be super shiny! Really cannot ask for more from a lip gloss!  The colors will be: Jealous (pink-red), Voyeur (yellow with peach finish), Androgyne (orange), Rhythm Box ( sheer purple/burgundy), New Wave (neon pink), Meta (red/orange). The colors will be a part of their permanent collection and will be available May 23rd on sephora.com and occmakeup.com

About: 

I love this eyeliner.  The color is a crisp white and a little goes a long way.  This liquid liner has a very precise applicator for precision lining that is fantastic and the color pay off is beyond amazing.  I bought only this one because I wanted to see how good it would be before investing in the other colors that are available.

And, no smudging, I promise!

About: 

Described on the Lime Crime site as a radioactive, neon pink, at first sight it is a far cry from neon.  In fact, I think that MAC’s Viva La Glam Nicki 1, is much more neon in color.  But this color is beautiful regardless.  As expected from Lime Crime the consistency is smooth and the creamy feel adds moisture to your lips.

All in all I love the color although I am a bit disappointed on just how un-neon the color really is.  It is definitely a wearable pink, suitable on both cool and warm skin tones.  Universally flattering, it is definitely an amazing lipstick to have in hand for a serious pop of color.

LimeCrime Makeup Drops Fun New Lipcolor: Geradium

If you are like me and are obsessed with fun lip colors, you’re in for a treat. Lime Crime famously known for their wide range of fun opaque colors, just released their new color: Geradium. On their site it is described as a radioactive, neon pink.  I have already ordered mine and will be swatching it as soon as I get it, so stay tuned.  The picture below is linked to the Lime Crime website, make sure you gets yours soon! They sell out super fast!
