Everything you need to know about the zeitgeist-y vegan beauty brand
Sound the new make-up klaxon, because Lime Crime has officially touched down on UK soil.
Founded by Doe Deere in 2008, the brand is about as colourful and fun as you could possibly get, while its name is a nod to Deere’s favourite colour, green.
Every product in the line is carefully thought out, vegan and cruelty free, ticking all the boxes for modern make-up lovers.
Lime Crime has just taken up permanent residence in Selfridges, so allow us to take you on a whistle stop tour of their greatest hits that should definitely add to your beauty arsenal.
Liquid lipstick without the dryness, these glide on for the perfect powdery-matte pout. The formula is so thin, but densely pigmented, that you’ll forget you’re even wearing it. We love shade Cashmere, a super soft dusky nude.
Think lipstick, but extra; these bad gals will add some serious sparkle and shine to your lip colour, taking your overall look to new boujie heights. Match your glitter colour to your lipstick or go all out with shimmering iridescent purple – aptly named ‘Unicorn’.
Palette lovers, if you have a passion for collecting and stacking your eyeshadow beauties then this is one you really need. The shadow itself is super fine with rich colour payoff, and they’re so blendable you’ll be able to create endless eye looks. Truly one of the best eyeshadow palettes out.
If Velvetines are too matte for your tastes, Plushies are that slightly silkier demi-matte with all the colour. Think fuller-looking lips with just the right dash of rich colour for the perfect pout, and tonnes of shades to choose from.
These days brushes come in all colours, shapes and sizes, and the bolder the better. Not only do the Aquarium brushes perform, but they’ll look super cute on your dressing room table, too. Major unicorn vibes.
It wouldn’t be a modern beauty brand without the inclusion of some killer highlighter palettes, like the Hi-Lites. Our favourite is the Opals palette, boasting holographic shades of pink, gold and peach for that multi-dimensional glow. Every highlighter addict needs this in their life.
Safe to say that Lime Crime is well and truly on our radar.
We’ll see you in the beauty hall…
