Lime Crime Liquid Highlighter – Hi-Lite in Blue Ice and Pink Glaze – Review and Swatches

The Lime Crime liquid highlighters cost $22 each. They have 21.88 ml of product and a 12-months shelf life once opened. They are vegan and cruelty-free.

What’s better than gumdrops? Festive Liquid Hi-Lite drops! The concentrated illuminating shimmer formula adds icing to your holiday look.

So let’s look at the new Hi-lite shades from Lime Crime.

The packaging is basic. This has been a theme for a while with Lime Crime since Doe has stepped back. These are no exception to the rule. It’s quite simply boring and a bit ‘graphic design is my passion’. The dropper works though.

There’s a lot of liquid in these and I don’t even think with daily use you’d use all of the product by the end of a year (which is the expiry). I’m actually going to put this to the test next year as part of my project pan. The cost per mil is more in the midrange on these.

As for the texture, well I dislike it. I’m going to admit I’m less of a true liquid highlighter fan, so my feelings will, of course, be biased. I just don’t like them though. They’re very wet look but barely last on the skin. Add to that and the difference in colour is not discernable when blended out.

Pink Glaze is simply described as ‘Pink Sparkle’. On the skin, it just shows as a lot of glitter. Blue Ice is described as ‘Irridescent Light Blue Sparkle’, this one leaves a wet like finish. The blue though vanishes on my skin completely.

I do not like these. They feel cheap. They feel cheaper than my Halloween liquid highlighters from Revolution Beauty. Unless you’re a Lime Crime collector I’d pass. If you’re into liquid highlighters I promise you’re missing nothing.

Both available from Lime Crime for $22.
