Lime Crime Makeup

The first thing I have to say about Lime Crime Makeup is that it is simply GLEEFUL! This makeup line is created by the inspirational blogger and fashionista, Doe Deere. I have been reading Doe’s blog for a while now, like a lot of her fans I loved all her makeup tutorials that she did before she started a steady blog. I’ve been using L.C. for over a year and I absolutely love it. I have 8 more subdued colors from the magic dust collection. I would really love to buy some of the brighter colors for both photo shoots and every day wear.

The colors I have in my collection are: Siren, Pompadour, Medusa, Empress, Princess Caraboo, Crystal Ball, Twilight, and a special nameless purple that I got for free. The eye shadows go on very smooth with a primer and can also be applied with a slightly wet brush as well. I have even used the magic dust as a lip color for a photo shoot and Halloween!

I have the older containers that have less product than you currently get but I think it’s still plenty, especially if you aren’t wearing it every day. Lime Crime was the first (and so far only) loose powder eye shadow I’ve gotten and it was a new experience. I would highly recommend using an eye shadow primer if you want to get a bold look because it makes the eye shadow stick better, go on brighter and stay much longer.

I also have the discontinued makeup brushes from Lime Crime. The 6 piece set came in a great carrying case and are very good quality. You never really realize what good quality is until you get it; I very rarely use the makeup brushes that come in the solid shadow I buy. I would love to see L.C. come out with makeup brushes again at some point so everybody that buys the makeup can experience great application.

I have yet to try L.C. lipsticks. I don’t normally wear lipstick and a few of the colors are a little extreme for me, but I would love to have a couple for photo shoots. From what I have seen the colors are very creamy and opaque. When I get the chance to buy new makeup I will probably purchase the Cosmopop and Retrofuturist lipsticks, as well as about 6 or so more of the magic dusts (if I can afford all that!). I have not had any issues with Lime Crime Makeup, so from the products that I have tried so far I give Lime Crime a 5 out of 5!

Burt's Bees Natural Toothpaste

I got a sample for Burt's Bees Natural Toothpaste recently. If you're really into organic and natural products I would recommend this. This toothpaste is 99.2% natural and it has cranberry extract to help fight plaque. Overall there really isn't anything special about Burt's Bees toothpaste. There is very little foaming which means less of the paste gets in between teeth. The texture of the toothpaste remind me of marshmallow fluff, it's a little more sticky than pasty.  There is also a kid's toothpaste which might be a good idea since it's almost 100% natural. I would give this toothpaste a 3 out of 5.
