Lime Crime Babette Lipstick Review

Lime Crime Babette Lipstick Review

Lime Crime is a cruelty free brand whose vegan lipstick shades I have often admired, but did not try until recently. When I received the release statement about Babette I knew that had to change. Lime Crime Babette is cruelty free, vegan, and a creamy pastel coral shade. Coral is one of my favorite lip shades because it’s so versatile.  I also love a good nude lip shade. Babette is the perfect mix of the two.

Claims: “Opaque lipstick in a rainbow of statement shades, to match your individuality!”

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Diisostearyl Malate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Trioctyldodecyl Citrate, Castor Isostearate Succinate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Octyldodecanol, Ozokerite, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Polyethylene, Microcrystalline Wax, Phenoxyethanol, Vanillin, Capryl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Vegetable Oil, BHT. [+/-] Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Yellow 5 Lake (CI19140), Red #7 Lake (CI45410, CI15850), D&C Red #6 (CI15850), Blue #1 Lake (CI42090), Yellow #6 Lake (CI15985)

Pros: This lipstick is very pigmented. Just one layer was enough to have a good amount of color on my lips. It’s also a matte opaque shade. I like this because one layer is enough to look like your natural lips but better and you can then add gloss if you like.

Cons: The formula isn’t moisturizing (but it also does not claim to be). Make sure to apply a good lip balm first to help it go on smoothly.

The Verdict: Babette has quickly become one of my favorite lipsticks! I absolutely love the color! I’ve seen it on people with pale skin, medium skin (like my own) and dark ski and feel like it’s a versatile shade that looks great on everyone. It wears well and lasts through eating and drinking. It also doesn’t feather, so no lip liner is needed.

If you haven’t picked up Babette, definitely do! You won’t be disappointed!

    I wouldn’t promote Lime Crime- they have a bad history that includes threatening bloggers and lying about their products. Here someone’s documented a timeline of the shady practices:

    Wow, that is a gorgeous shade of lipstick! It’s not moisturizing, but does it have a drying effect on lips?

      Thank you so much! :) I can say that it doesn’t have a drying effect on me, but I also apply a good chapstick first.

    This looks like it was made especially for you, suits you so well. I WISH I could wear very light shades but they just make me look dead or sick. The ingredients list looks great!

      Thank you! :) I say give this one a try! It being a pastel coral, the tone is different than most pale lipsticks I’ve tried.
