I made the mistake of buying this lipstick. I saw the photos of lime crime and they looked so good on the model that i believed that i could actually pull green lipstick off, i was wrong of course! I then realized that Lime Crimes photos must be super photoshoped, or you have to have really light skin to wear them, I dont know but i know that this lipstick made my skin look off.
Lime Crime is definitely pigmented, you only need one coat and i loved the packaging, but it is just too difficult to wear. :/
This is like buying a Tinkerbell lipstick from ToysRus. The color payoff is great. It lasts <1 hour. Smells funky.
Lime Crime do not list their ingredients which weird me out a little too.
Wow, never in a million years did I imagine I would be purchasing a green lipstick. Ever since I laid eyes on Mint To Be, however, it became an obsession and after debating about it for months, I had to have it! I'm really glad I did because it's such a unique and novel part of my vast makeup collection. The color is a lovely, pastel mint-green that totally gives off a cool, vintage vibe. It has a sweet, vanilla-esque fragrance and had a thick, creamy texture. The color goes on a little bluer on the lips than how it looks in the tube, IMO, but is still very pretty. It takes a tiny bit of effort to get the color to apply evenly, but I really don't mind it so much because the result looks so rad. The lippy itself has good pigmentation and decent opacity with a true matte finish. The color tends to settle into the creases of my lips over time, but that's easily solved by gently pressing them together to even it out. All in all, I would definitely recommend Mint To Be for those who would are brave enough to venture outside of the box. The flaws are minor, IMO, and are easily forgiven because the color is so unique!
