Today i will be reviewing the Lime Crime lipstick "Babette" its a pretty gorgeous colour ive used it on quite a lot of clients and its a really good highlight colour for the middle of the lip as well as a great lip colour for people with pale skin.
Colour and Pigmentation
Babette is a very peachy nude shade its not something that can be used on every skin tone its going look on on people with quite pale skin maybe even medium skin but thats it, i find anything other than that it looks rather weird on the lips because it is a pale tone. As the same with all Lime Crime lipsticks they are really pigmented giving you a solid colour on the lips, its feels really soft and i wouldn't use the term moisturising because it doesn't moisturise but it feels like it.
You will find that it is lighter than the promo image because it looks darker and richer in the promo images which is quite deceptive but its still a great colour
The staying power with Babette is okay, its nothing special you get about 3/4 hours worth of wear before you need to do some touch ups more so if you find yourself eating and drinking but apart from that it is an okay wearing lipstick
I think my favourite thing about this lipstick apart from the colour is the packaging its a really unique bullet as it has a holographic unicorn on the tube with the words "Lime Crime" in holographic writing as well, it is quite a girly looking packaging almost verging on childish but i just absolutely love it as it almost has personality where other bullets are just standard black and boring
Price and Where to Buy

The Good and The Bad?
The Good?- I really like the opacity of the lipstick
The Bad?- The wear time could be better
