Lime Crime recently came out with their "lip toppers," the Diamond Crushers. This is one of those things that I only picked up one of and now I wish I had bought the whole damn set! I wasn't sure how I was going to like it, wasn't sure if it would be like a gloss (not the biggest fan of lip glosses), but they looked really pretty in all the advertisements, so I decided to try the shade Lit. And oh my, I was pleasantly surprised with this little gem!
The packaging is just gorgeous. It's in a heavy duty tube with a super sparkly pink cap!
First, THIS COLOR! Lit is a crazy rose gold with lots of pink. It's so, so pretty. The wand is long and thin, and makes it easy to get into the corners of your lips without a problem.
The scent of this is amazing as well - it smells exactly like strawberry gummy candies! When you first apply it, it feels very wet and cool, like you're applying a cold gel to your lips. It dries almost instantly and leaves your lips feeling like you have nothing on. I was very surprised to find that it's not drying at all either.
Swatched heavily, this shade gives you a bit of pink color with lots of gold sparkle. It's not like straight up glitter though - it's chunkier and when you smooth it out, it gives so much sparkle. And no, it's not gritty at all. The part that amazed me most is that it hardly transfers onto anything. For something so glittery, that is unheard of! If you kiss the back of your hand, you'll get a few specks of sparkle, but it doesn't come off when you're drinking, eating, etc. I could not believe that the first time I wore it. Also, it stays on all day long yet comes off easily with a makeup wipe. I'm beginning to think it's made with some sort of sorcery .... hahaha
Once you sheer it out, which I like to do when I put it over a lipstick, you get a finer glittery appearance:
No matter what type of lipstick you put it over, it doesn't mess it up. A lot of times when I try to put a gloss over a liquid lipstick (especially the ones that dry matte), it makes it super sticky, clumpy, and gross and ends up making it so that it's no longer transfer-proof. Not with this stuff! If anything, it makes lipsticks last LONGER. As soon as I put this over a lipstick and it dries, it doesn't budge. It doesn't mess with the formula of the lipstick underneath, and it doesn't make it sticky or gross.
I know Lime Crime has been in a lot of hot water, but I seriously, seriously love this product and had to share with you guys.
