Glamour 101 is described by Lime Crime as a 'brick red.' When I bought this they had a swatch guide on their website that showed this as being a deep blood red, which it isn't at all. It's a lovely bold retro red. If there's one thing I'm lacking in my lipstick collection, it's a red lipstick. I'm very pale, so lots of reds really don't suit me, and I haven't really got the patience to go out looking for that does! Although it isn't what I was expecting I'm incredibly pleased with it because it fills a gap in my collection. I don't know why my skin looks blue on my lip swatch! The lighting my house is really bizarre, one moment everything looks orange and with the teeniest bit of sunlight I look like a dead smurf. Weird.

Poisonberry on the other hand is a purple berry. Again, it is not accurate to the online swatch at all. I find that using a lip liner underneath (I use Deep Purple from NYX) makes it a lot closer to the swatch on the website and really brings this colour to life. It looks amazing in the tube and applies really well.
Both of these lipsticks are incredibly creamy with a little bit of shine. They are incredibly pigmented and they last forever. I can wear these all day at university and they survive numerous cups of hot chocolate and food. They do stain the lips so there's still some colour there once they fade. I really love the way that these feel on my lips, they aren't drying and feel very comfortable. They are not tested on animals either.
These lipsticks cost £11.50 for 3.5g. I bought mine from Cocktail Cosmetics. You can also buy them from the Lime Crime website.
Do you own any Lime Crime lipsticks?
Disclosure: I bought these lipsticks myself.
