Serpent vs Serpentina

Meet Serpent by MakeUp Revolution, it’s almost an exact match for Serpentina by Lime Crime.

I love the packaging on LC’s lipsticks but the lids crack so easily and it feels like cheap plastic. Once the lids crack they won’t stay on. MUR’s lipsticks also feels like cheap plastic but I do like the pot of colour at the top. It makes it very easy to find the colour you’re looking for.

Where the MUR lipsticks fare better is they aren’t drying. They have a much more buttery texture. They are however a little less opaque and work better with the help of a lip liner. MakeUp Academy’s Forest Green liner is perfect for this.

Lastly cost. This is where Makeup Revolutions wins hands down.

  • Lime Crime’s lipsticks cost £12.50 from UK retailers. It has 3.5g of product in it.
  • MakeUp Revolutions lipsticks cost £1 from UK retailers. It has 3.8g of product in it.

No I didn’t make a typing error, these dupes really do cost just £1 with more product. So if you’re in love with Serpentina but don’t want to pay a ridiculous price, find Lime Crime’s lipsticks drying or just can’t stand Doe Deere’s behaviour here’s a great alternative.
