First things first, I'd just like to start by saying that I bought this product before Limecrime announced the whole hacking scandal thing and shortly after my purchase, received a letter and an email stating that my details had not been compromised. However, I do know that many people experienced huge issues after their details were stolen and as a result, Limecrime have lost many loyal customers for not notifying them sooner about the problem. I want to let you all make your own minds up about the company, but if you do not wish to purchase this product from Limecrime, you can always search on depop or eBay. I've also left some dupes below that you could try out as an alternative!
Despite the controversy surrounding the brand, I thought it was still worth sharing this product with you all, I've been wearing it non-stop since I bought it and as far as liquid lipsticks go, this product is the best I've tried. Like many Limecrime fans, I now wish I didn't love it as much as I do, but honestly, it's beautiful.
The formula is non-drying and comfortable to wear; it lasts ages on the lips and is the most long wearing throughout mealtimes than any other liquid lipstick I've tried. Plus it smells like toffee, which I totally wasn't expecting! The colour of Cashmere however, is what convinced me to place the order, it's just so pretty and looks completely different on various skin-tones. I've seen this shade range from grey to lilac to nude to brown, all depending on who's wearing it. In the first photo I'm wearing a pink lipliner with a generous layer of Cashmere on top, without the pink underneath I feel this colour is a little too strong for my fair complexion, but I really love how versatile Cashmere can look layered over different lipsticks. For a second example, in the second photo I have a light pink lipstick on as a base and I have dabbed a light layer of Cashmere over the top to create a really pretty nude. These two looks have been my go-tos with this product, but I'd love to layer it over some more shades and see how that turns out.
Mac Lipliner in Stone - £12.50
Menow Lipcream #18 - £2.89
OCC Matte Lip Tar in Sebastian - $18 (£12)
Coloured Raine in Marshmallow - $16.50 (£11)
Now that I've researched these dupes I really want to test some of them out! They're all less expensive that Cashmere so it'd be worth a try. Is that a post any of you would be interested in?
