REVIEW: Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

I've been wanting to get my hands on these lipsticks for ages, but to be honest I just never got around to it - I always thought it would take ages to navigate through the website and pay for it, due to it being an American website, but it was actually really quick and simple! (Me just being lazy as usual)
I just ordered a few to see what they were like for myself, before I decided to purchase anymore, and as usual I'm cross with myself as I should have ordered more at the time because it took them two weeks to arrive! I wanted lipsticks in the shades I wear the most, so I went for a red (retrofuturist), pink (centrifuchsia) and of course a nude (eraser) - and then an orange/brown colour in a matte liquid lipstick (pumpkin). There really is sooooo many different formulas to choose from, and every colour you can think of! The colour of the pictures and the colour in real life are identical, there's nothing more annoying than a product arriving and it looking totally different to what you wanted or thought. So props to Lime Crime for that one! 
Everyone wears lipstick differently and everyone has different lips, but for me they are really moisturising when you first apply them, and they are so highly pigmented- especially the Velventines liquid lipstick. Most of all, the staying power is incredible; the only lipstick/gloss that has ever stayed put for me is any of the NYX range (which is now available in Boots, yay!) that is, until now, woohoo! Talking, eating, drinking and more talking, and they still stay put! I have a bad habit of licking my lips in when I talk, and this usually results in the lipstick fading, so I'm really pleased with how long this formula actually stays on. Finally is anyone else obsessed with the packaging? Ok, well I am and wow, how cute is it all?  As if the purple and sliver glitter unicorns weren't enough, look at what it comes in; the floral box and pink tissue paper makes the unicorn packages look even cuter when they arrive at your door, rather than in a boring bubble envelope!
I would 100% recommend these to anyone; the intense colour pay-off, the lasting power, the moisturising formula - all make it hard to resist! It is safe to say I've already ordered more, and the eyeshadow pallet too - hopefully I'm just as impressed with that Thanks for reading, love Emma Jane xx
