Hi lovelies! I purchased a Lime Crime lipstick in Coquette off a sale on Karmaloop. I have been avoiding this brand for many years due to their poor reputation and treatment of bloggers. I was not pleased with how Temptalia was harassed and did not want to be put in the same position (you can read about it here). I simply want to mention that my review is neutral and bias-free as possible. I am only reviewing the product as is and not the company itself.
Nudes are a very difficult colour for me. I have naturally darker lips, so many paler shades of lipsticks are not opaque enough and look very concealer-like and disgusting. I always have to shade my lips in with a lip liner to make it work for me.
Let's see how Lime Crime Coquette works for me!
Oh my! I love the Lime Crime packaging. Who hates holographic unicorns on purple? Not me! One of the reasons why I was so interested in Lime Crime as soon as I learned about it was due to the unique packaging. It is very sturdy, well made and does not feel cheap. I love the packaging!
Oh, this shiny unicorn is what my childhood dreams were made of. *_____*
The Lime Crime lipstick size is slightly fatter than the MAC lipsticks.

Lime Crime Coquette is definitely a nude peach with pinky-beige undertones. It isn't a super pale nude, which should make it easier and more flattering to wear on many skin tones. Coquette is extremely pigmented. I am really happy with this shade.

Colour and Coverage:
I did not have to use any lip liner to get full coverage. I am so impressed by how pigmented the lipstick is. It is also very creamy and applied easily. I swiped the lipstick directly from the tube and used my finger to blend. I also had very dry, chapped lips at this time, so I was really pleased that it wasn't accentuated. It helped that I used a lip base and also my finger to tap and blend the lipstick. It was very effortless to do and I really love the results. The colour is definitely a nude peach with maximum coverage.
Ultimately, I would definitely purchase more shades. I am really interested in Airborne Unicorn and Cosmopop, which would probably be in my future purchase. I love the product for the product, but I can't say I love the company and their ethics.
Are you a fan of Lime Crime?
