Oh great, now I’m gonna have a Katy Perry song in my head all day!
If you saw my last post, you’ll be aware that I recently received quite a few new Lime Crime lipsticks. One of the trios that I got included a deep teal blue shade, the likes of which I had never worn before, but was excited to.
As you may have guessed by now, this shade is called Peacock. Unfortunately, this shade is no longer available on Lime Crime, and I think this recent sale they had were getting rid of the last stock of these blue trios they had. I know they have a lot of shades in their arsenal, but I do think it’s a shame that this is no longer one of them.
I wore this shade the day after receiving it, because I was so excited to. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what the rest of my makeup should look like to go with it, so I just kind of messed about and ended up with purples.
I’m still not entirely sure if they work to be honest, but I thought I’d share with you anyway.
I think the next time I wear it, I’ll pair it with nudes/brown on my eyes.
In terms of the lipsticks itself, it is beautiful, like the Velvetines usually are. There were areas where I needed to double up on the application for full pigmentation, but overall it was nice application and wearability.
I think that this trio might have been from their previous formula, so the doefoot is slightly different (shorter), and it feels like there may be a little more oil in this formula, however it’s still great.
I wore this one all day with no patchiness, but it did come off easier than Lime Crime’s shades usually do when I eventually did remove it. I don’t know whether this is due to the previous formula, or whether it’s something with darker pigmented lipsticks (which I have found with other brands).
I personally am very happy to wear this shade out and about. What about you guys? How do you feel about the blue lipstick trend? Have you braved it?
Have a beautiful day!
