I've been pretty obsessed with this lavender-hued opaque lipstick from Lime Crime. Quite a few of you were curious to see it in action, so here you go! It goes on pretty dramatically purple so I prefer to blot it on with my finger so the color is a bit more mellow. I think it's a pretty and unexpected alternative to my usual pinks and reds. My girl Isla shot these photos after a coffee date during which we discussed going to New York together in early September to hang out with all the east coast babes (you know who you are). Fingers crossed that we can make it happen!

I have the same lipstick! I love it so much, but it's not easy to wear and my boyfriend hates it!
