Alright, allow me to preface this review by saying I have really mixed views on this company. I really want to dislike them, but I dig the product (kind of how I feel about Apple as well, but that's a whole other story...). Okay, so I ordered the Lime Crime Pop Romance lipstick in Coquette. I am in love! See more details and swatches after the jump.
My first reaction to the packaging was that DANG. It's really pink. I don't like pink much, but I suppose that it is what it is. The teal boxes that they use to mail the product are far cuter than the box on the lipstick itself! The tube seems very cheap. When I shake it, I can hear the lipstick jiggle around in the tube. No me gusta.
|A swatch on my skin... can you even see it?|
I did a swatch on my skin, but it's so close to my color that it's difficult to see. Like I mention in the video, I have very pink undertones. Since this "nude" has a bit of peach to it, it seems to match up pretty closely to my skin. That's really what I was hoping for when I bought this color.

My final verdict is that I love it. As much as I wanted to have a negative thing to say, all I can complain about is the company's past discrepancies. Let's hope that they clear all of this up and continue to make more vegan cosmetics! I received my package in two days, which I thought was really amazing.
