Product Review: Serpentina Lipstick by Lime Crime

January 27, 2013 Posted by rissvandal

I’d like to dub green as the new black–can I do that? It has all the dark edge of black lipstick, without the dangerous chance that you’ll end up looking like a kid playing vampire dress up on Halloween. That being said, I finally got a chance to test drive “Serpentina,” the metallic forest green shade by Lime Crime. I’d been searching for the perfect shade of green to go with my complexion for about a year. After a huge let down by Graftobian and discovering that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics no longer carries their garden green shade of Lip Tar, thank goodness for Doe Deere and her wonderful glittering unicorns for delivering a much-needed product.

Like all Lime Crime lipsticks, Serpentina is easy to apply, smells like cake (man, I love that), and once applied, it’s on for hours. But amidst all of the pros, the one problem I faced was feathering. Feathering isn’t that uncommon, and it’s not a big enough problem to turn me away from a lipcolor I’d otherwise love, but the thing to remember in this case is, the lipstick is GREEN, and if feathering occurs, there’s no hiding it. But all is not lost–the key and absolute lifesaver in this case is lip liner.

3 Things to Look Out for In 2012

December 30, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

You may fault me for this, but I’m going to resist the urge to have a “Best of 2011″ top 10 list, and I swear it has nothing to do with laziness. Rather than rehashing the past (I mean, c’mon, haven’t you been paying attention?), why not look ahead and focus on things to inspire you in the new year?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are three things I want to bring to light that you should look out for in 2012. First up, jewelry by A is for Arsenic. (more…)

Dark and Uncommon Lipstick Shades by Providence and Grace

September 21, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

I’ve had a lot of positive responses to my previous outfit and makeup posts that featured black lipstick, with a few people saying that they didn’t realize such dark lipstick could be pulled off stylishly (I guess as opposed to clownishly). That being said, I’ve been seeking out other dark lipstick shades to utilize this Fall.

Providence and Grace offers a number of lipsticks on the darker side of the spectrum, and they sent me a few colors to try out. The makeup comes in a tube most often used for chapstick or lip balm, which is appropriate, since the consistency is a lot smoother and moisture-rich than most lipsticks.

When Lips Get Violent…

July 5, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Perhaps I’m just compensating for a lack of real tattoos, but I’ve been seeking out every single temporary tattoo cosmetic product on the market. For that reason, as soon as I found out these temporary lip tattoos from Violent Lips existed, I wasted no time trying them out.

 So if you’re thinking to yourself, “Lip tattoos? Those sound sort of complicated…” then you’re partially correct. You can’t just slap em on, add a little water and call it a day. These take a bit of measuring and cutting, a whole lot of patience and practice, and a far steadier hand than I apparently have. If you want to know what I’m talking about, watch the tutorial here.

But all that said, they sure as hell delivered some dramatic results, which is exactly what I was seeking out.

Rules? I know nothing of the sort.

Blue isn’t exactly the most becoming color for dark-skinned women, and I kind of new that from the start. But yknow what? I still had to try it out for myself…
