Lime Crime UniLiners Collection Review/Swatches and a GIVEAWAY!

Hello, guys and gals! I have a super exciting post for you guys today. Not only am I reviewing Lime Crime's brand new eyeliner collection, but I am giving away a set of the collection to one lucky reader! WOO!


If you are familiar with Lime Crime, you know that this indie makeup company is not for the shy. I am a fan of their crazy and unique colors, and of course the wonderfully cute packaging. Lime Crime has done it again with their newest collection of colorful eyeliners, properly named "Unliners" (Get it? Like Unicorns!). Lime Crime was once again super kind and generous to me and they sent me the collection to try out, and I cannot wait to show you all these babies!

REVIEW

There are seven gorgeous shades in the collection to choose from, and they are priced at $13.99 each (1.3ml, 0.04oz), or you can own the entire collection for $73.99 (a $24.01 savings). Also, they are vegan and cruelty-free which is a huge plus in my book!

In true Lime Crime fashion, the packaging is sleek, whimsical, well made, and all kinds of adorable. I will definitely have these displayed on my vanity and smile every time I see them.


I was very impressed with the actual product itself. I was not expecting these to be as opaque and pigmented as they are (this is LC we're talking about though, they are known for their intense pigmentation...silly me!). I swatched all seven liners on my hand without any primer or base and they lasted for several hours and did not fade away. They are not necessarily water-proof, but are definitely smudge-proof. They survived the grueling task of dish washing, though! They are smooth, creamy and they do not irritate my sensitive skin.

I love the applicator of these liners. It's a medium-length brush tip that helps create a thin, sleek line effortlessly. If you're not very experienced with liquid liners with a brush tip, you might have a bit of trouble with these, but there's nothing a little practice can't solve.

I'm in love with the colors of this collection! Most are unique, and unlike any other liquid liners I have ever seen before. I'd love to see some glitter liners from Lime Crime in the future to pair with these magical uniliners.

SWATCHES


QUILL: "Glossy black. The darkest black you've ever experienced!"
-That is a fact! This patent-leather black is the darkest black liner I have ever used, ever! A new staple in my makeup collection. It's super sexy, and reminds me of a killer stiletto heel.

6TH ELEMENT: "Vivid 'Fanta' orange, Leeloo would be proud! Enhances blue and grey eyes. Matte finish."
-This is a beautiful mandarin orange shade that makes my mouth water. It definitely looks just like Leeloo's hair in the 5th Element movie! It has a thinner consistency than the others, so you will need two coats to get it as opaque as the other shades.

CITREUSE: "Bright, nearly neon chartreuse. Matte finish."
-Um, can you say, "Wow"? This by far, one of the most unique colors I have seen in makeup lately. I'm in love with neons at the moment, so this was instantly a favorite for me. I love the yellow-green shade and the matte finish as well. (I used this liner in my Charming Chartreuse look)!

LAZULI: "Bright blue that leans slightly purple, inspired by lapis lazuli. Enhances brown eyes. Matte finish."
-I almost fainted when I swatched this. IT'S SO PRETTY AND BRIGHT. I have been dying for a liquid liner version of my beloved GDE shadow in Mingles, and my prayers have been answered. This color makes my eye color pop like crazy.

ORCHIDACEOUS: "Bright violet-purple. Matte finish."
-A lovely, rich violet that is described as matte, but has a very slight and subtle silver shimmer in the tube. It has the same consistency as 6th Element, and two layers were needed as well to get it super opaque.

BLUE MILK: "Pale sky-blue. Matte finish."
-This color reminds of me those candy coated almonds that you get during Easter. It's creamy as heck, and ridiculously opaque. This would look insane on deeper skin tones!

LUNAR SEA: "Pure, matte white."
-Possibly the most opaque of the bunch, and the mattest (is that even a word?). It's smooth and creamy, and it's like the makeup version of White-Out. Love.

  15. Ohhh my gosh they look really stunning! *_____* If it is actually really that opaque and creamy as you describe it this would be like a dream come true, haha ^^ Personally I'd prefer "Lunar Sea"... I guess. ITäs really hard to say, because Citreuse is also super pretty. Blue is my favorit color and Lazuli is just breathtaking, but I think if I wore it it would look a bit strange because I have blue eyes. But anyway :D Great review, thanks for the swatches and the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

  75. So hard to choose ;n; I want them all to make a rainbow... kinda rainbow-obsessive over here, and it'd match my hair :D I adore 6th Element and Blue Milk, but, I just have to go for Lazuli because it's so incredibly bright and bold. Magnificent~! ♥
