Hello everyone! Happy Thursday! Just catching up with my fall TV shows tonight, American Horror Story Hotel and Survivor Second Chances. Survivor is getting steamier every episode and SO unpredictable too. As for AHS Hotel, I can’t believe Lady Gaga is such a good actress. She’s very convincing for her role. Thanks to all who liked Bruno’s Halloween “Minion” costume this year and since your support has been so awesome, we won this year for overall best costume. Anyways, today’s post is the second installment for the new lip colors from ColourPop and Lime Crime. Lime Crime Jinx is surprisingly very wearable dark purple while ColourPop Bad Habit is nothing unique but one of the prettiest shades with an improved formula from ColourPop.
ColourPop Bad Habit is described as a dusty mauve pink. It appears as a warm fuchsia with a hint of rose which dries to a retro matte finish. It lasted for almost 9 hours of wear and never turns patchy nor flaky. It is a non drying, non hydrating formula which is very comfortable to wear. Comfort has always been a challenge on retro matte lipsticks. It is very pigmented that a single layer is all I need to cover my entire lips. It dries up in 30 seconds tops. These Ultra Matte lipsticks are super affordable at $6 and since they are very pigmented, you can stretch the life of a tube.
Lime Crime Jinx Velvetines is described as a witchberry purple. It appears as a deep warm purple with strong plum undertones. It is a watery formula that is very pigmented and dries to a matte finish in a matter of 60 seconds. I do have quite a sizable number of purple lipsticks and this one is the most wearable in the dark purple categories. It looks great when paired with olive eyes. It is a non drying, non hydrating formula. Once it is all dried up, it feels like second skin. This is very consistent with the majority of my Lime Crime Velvetines formula and pigmentation but I don’t know why Lime Crime Squash fell off the wagon.
The Bottom Line:
ColourPop Bad Habit is a great addition to my growing “dusty rose” lip colors. The nice thing with dusty rose lips, they are considered as ‘fool proof’ and safe color. You can wear any eye shadow and blush shades and it will still compliment very well with this shade. Lime Crime Jinx is something every purple lip junkie should have and a great “purple” shade starter for those who are scared to wear this color. Lime Crime has 2 new shades which just came out a couple of weeks ago and I am still contemplating whether to get it or not. Do connect with me on social media where all the makeup discussions and “the after party” happens. Until next time…
