Lime Crime Mini Wet Cherry Lip Gloss Holiday Set – Winter Shine – Review and Swatches

The Winter Shine set costs $21 from Lime Crime or £17 from UK Suppliers. It has three exclusive mini lipgloss shades with 1.18 ml each. They are vegan and cruelty-free.

Sprinkle yourself in next-level glossy shine. We’ve included three all new limited-edition Wet Cherry sparkly and juicy sheer glosses in various hues: Cherry Jubilee, Minty Cherry, and Winter Cherry – either to gift or for you. Glisten in slick without stick.

The packaging is in the shape of a bauble with a ribbon on the top, so if you were so inclined you could put this on your tree. It’s covered in glitter but that doesn’t come off so you have no worries there. I’m not 100% sold on the packaging, it’s certainly in the same Plain Jane design they’ve been using this past year. The bottles are just mini versions of the full sizes with again a smaller applicator. This means they’re very cute, but the applicator isn’t too practical for getting the product on your lips.

The texture of the glosses is of the same standard as the regular sizes. By that I mean they’re not sticky. As I mentioned before the applicator is smaller and this means you get less product out. You definitely need two dips for comfortable wear, especially with the more glittery ones (in this case Minty Cherry) because it otherwise makes the gloss scratchy. They have the same usual cherry scent too.

They are however very sheer.

As you can see the colour even on my lips is just not there. I think if it wasn’t for the difference in the levels of glitter, from none to a bit, you’d probably not be able to tell the difference between the swatches at all.

Even with that, I don’t think they’re bad, they just too sheer to show any colour. Essentially. you’ve bought three mini clear glosses with various levels of glitter for a higher than usual price. So if they’re worth it is up to you.

If you’d like a set you can get them from Lime Crime for $22 or Boots for £17.
