Good afternoon, gorgeous! On the blog today is my review of my first ever Lime Crime lipstick - Babette! I've always wanted to try Lime Crime because they're a cruelty-free vegan company and I really admire that. When the press release for Babette came out, I died and knew I had to have it! Let's see if Babette matched up to my hype!

Lime Crime Babette

First off, the packaging is SO FUN! Even the box that it was shipped in was all white on the outside but the inside was hot pink polka dots and lime green tissue paper. A+ on that!

And the unicorn! How adorable is this?

Lime Crime Babette

Babette - is described as a pastel coral and to think of it as Coquette's pinker sister.

I agree that it's a pastel coral but one thing that bothered me is that this looked so different on me than shown on the site. Wahh. It's still pretty though. On me, it seemed a bit darker. That being said, it's super pigmented and is very thick and creamy. It did settle into my lip lines a bit within a few hours but never felt dry to me. Some have said Lime Crime lipsticks smell like vanilla (a la MAC) but I didn't smell it. Lasting power was about two hours. Overall, I really like this color and the formula. It's so smooth and creamy to put on.

What do you think of Babette? Would you buy it?
