Lime Crime Perlees Lipstick in Penny, Charmed & Beetle Review & Swatches

The last time I tried Lime Crime, I didn't care for their Velvetine liquid lipstick formula ( I Have 2 Moods ). They may have looked good on me, but they didn't feel good. I never let ONE disappointing product from a company, deter me from trying their other products. I caught a sale on their PERLEES, the end of last year. PERLEES are Lime Crime's METALLIC lipsticks. I selected 3 of the 9 colors that were offered on their site. One thing to note about Lime Crime, is that they come up with some very UNIQUE colors. I'll put it another way, this brand can be BOLD & FIERCE. They always make a STATEMENT. Both the outer box & lipstick holder of the PERLEES have a dark floral print. I'm happy to say, these lipsticks feel a lot better than the Velvetines. They're like night & day. The formula (metallic matte) is a good weird! It goes on drier than normal lipsticks, yet the pigmentation is awesome & your lips look "glossy" without being wet. Plus, they feel lightweight on the lips! These lipsticks also stay in place. I love all three colors on me! There's one more color I want from this collection. It's called Third Eye :P and it is a Mulberry Red. Even the names are BOLD! HaHaHaHa

Lime Crime Perlees in BEETLE (Beetle Brown)



  1. H, yes, maybe the red metallic one, but again... I am not yet convinced by the metallic lips trend. Probably because my lips are pretty small, so the effect is lost on them.

  2. Charmed it so pretty, I purchased a similar metallic shade from Milani a few months back and I wore it a lot but I feel I get bored with metallic lipsticks easily and wanted to switch between them. But I cannot say no to metallic eyeshadows, even for every day makeup! x


  3. The lipsticks look like beautiful shade! I have mixed feelings about the brand, so I don't think I would buy these because of it x

  4. I like lime crime but a big fan of. Gorgeous shades!

  5. I've heard a lot about Lime Crime over the years, but overall, their colours have never seemed that appealing to me - they are so bold, and I'm just not the kind of person who wants to make a statement with my make-up. Still, these colours are great on you, Kim!

  6. I love the bright cooper, what a great shade and of course the flower print tubes.

  7. Glad to hear that you had a much better experience with Lime Crime this time around. These are definitely some unique shades as well! I love the way Penny looks on you Kim!

  8. Lime Crime is DEF about bold lips! I like Charmed on you the best!

  9. Each of these shades is gorgeous! I am loving that floral packaging too.

  10. I have never tried anything from Lime Crime and doubt that I ever will but damn, Kim, you are in a metallic lips streak! LOL!

  11. Dayum! These shades look fantastic, Kim, and they look fab on you, esp. that Bright Copper! Great to know they're tons better than the Velvetine ones.:)

  12. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous and so are the colors! I've seen Like Crime lipsticks around Instagram and you're right, they seem to be very bold and unique, perfect for makeup enthusiasts. Though the shades you're wearing here do seem practical enough for the everyday makeup lover too! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a wonderful start to your week!



  13. The packaging is sooo pretty!! I wany one just for that lol! All three shades are beautiful on you, Kim! Charmed is my favorite! I'm glad these metallics work better for you than the others that you tried!

  14. These lipsticks all look beautiful on you! So glad you had a better experience this time.

  15. Kim, you had me at the pretty floral packaging! I can't wait for spring! I love Charmed the most.

  16. Wow. I love the Bright Copper on you! And I love that you keep an open mind when it comes to trying different products even though you may not have liked another one of their items.

  17. I haven't tried the whole metallic lip trend quite yet...I have a feeling it may not work for me.
    Love these unique shades...they look gorgeous on you!

  18. What an interesting formula! I definitely like the finish and pigmentation.

  19. You're right about not letting one product influence your view of an entire company/brand. Every company has its weakest link- and sometimes our skin just reacts a certain way to some products- it doesn't mean it will react badly to other products from the same company.

    The floral packaging of these is very adorable. Another thing I really like about this is that the finish is great. Beetle brown is such a pretty shade.

  20. Kim you've been sharing the best metallic lipsticks lately! I love especially Charmed! They all look very creamy and perfectly pigmented! Loves and loves

  21. The metallics are really fun, and I'm glad this line did not disappoint. I love the copper color on you.
