LIMECRIME // 6th Anniversary Opaque Cream Lipsticks | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee
As soon as I saw that Pagan Marie was going to have a couple of the Lime Crime Lipsticks in the limited edition 6th Anniversary packaging, I thought "I'm gon' need that". And sure enough, I bought two shades in Coquette and Babette, both ones I have been eyeing up for a while now.

You seriously have gotta hand it to Lime Crime for the beautiful and unique packaging. Instead of the usual purple boxes, these limited edition lippies come in these amazing holographic boxes, but still have the same tubes, just with a slightly different design on them.

To be honest, I really could not decide on what shade to get between the two of these as they both seemed quite similar, so I just got them both! These lipsticks have top-notch pigmentation, the swatches show two swipes and they go on super creamy and super opaque like the name would suggest.

COQUETTE // More on the browny, nude side of things, described as a pale, peachy nude.

BABETTE // The pinker version of Coquette, described as a pastel coral.

I thought I would also include the other two Lime Crime lipsticks from my collection, in Great Pink Planet and Airborne Unicorn. I can't get over how creamy these feel on the lips, for something so pigmented they apply very easily and they also stick around for a good amount of time before touch-ups are needed. I have a full review on these two shades right here.

Pagan Marie has all the shades, and have a few that are available in this limited edition packaging - Coquette, Babette, Great Pink Planet, Serpentina and Styletto. They are NZD $29.00 each and Pagan Marie ship nationwide for free and also offer international shipping. If you want some of the other shades in this special packaging, ordering straight from the Lime Crime website would be your best bet where they retail for USD $18.00 and they also ship internationally for a flat rate of USD $10.95. I'd get in quick, as this packaging is only around for a limited time!

Have you got any Lime Crime lipsticks in your stash? What is your favourite shade they offer?
