So remember when I said I'd review Lime Crime's Retrofuturist like a year ago? WELL HERE IT IS!
Lime Crime pretty much has me with its purple case and holographic unicorns. Yes, HOLOGRAPHIC UNICORNS. WHAT MORE COULD I EVER WANT IN A LIPSTICK?!
Packaging aside, this lipstick is pretty good.

I mean, I don't have really high standards when it comes to lipstick. Generally all I ask is that it look good on me and last at least until I use my lips for something. I've tried various primers and voodoo methods for getting lipstick to stay forever (but I heard about some sorcery involving blotting and powder, so I'll get back to you on that), and I just can't get it to work out. I guess I could re-apply it after lunch, but let's be honest with ourselves here, I'm too lazy for that.
|I really liked how creamy this one was, though.|
Anyway, Lime Crime's lipstick met my expectations, and even exceeded them a bit in how creamy it was. It looks dreadful after a meal, though, but that's likely due to the fact that I don't use any lipliner or primer at all. I hate when I have the dreaded Lipstick Outline and nobody bothers to tell me about it.
|Retrofuturist is really bright red, mmk?|
Like with pretty much all lipsticks ever, you're going to get the best results if you regularly exfoliate and moisturize. I use Lush's lip scrub in Mint Julips and their Lip Service lip balm afterwards. You can also google how to make a simple lip scrub, but I've already established that I'm lazy. I also like that the scrubs from Lush are edible.
|Yeah, this shit is HAWT.|
But yeah, there's only so much you can say about a red lipstick. This is a good one. Is it the BEST ONE EVAR? No. Liquid lipsticks are better if you want something that lasts a long time, but this lipstick tube has a goddamn holographic unicorn on it. I'm a sucker for that shit. Bottom Line, I'll probably get more.
