I however can honestly say that Lime Crime is one of 2 brands that are my only go to’s when purchasing liquid lipstick. The formula and the pigmentation are just incredible. For mostly all their shades all you need is one dip of the wand into the tube and bam! Impeccable application. You can easily go a full day without needing to re-apply. The formula is not at all drying. I swear to you that you barely even feel that it’s there! You can drink, talk, and eat without it smudging or flaking & there is indeed a scent to these. A slight cake batter scent is found but, not at all overwhelming. Another great upside to this, VEGAN & CRUELTY FREE!”
