Since hooking up with LimeLight by Alcone, I’m slowly working my way through their product line, giving you honest, real-deal reviews as I go. If you’d like to know my thoughts on the LimeLight by Alcone Enduring Lip Colors, read on. If you don’t really care but you’d like to see close up shots at my peach fuzz, read on for that too. Special bonus.
LimeLight by Alcone Enduring Lip Colors are essentially liquid lipsticks. They are available in 8 permanent shades as well as 3 limited edition ones. All but one color, Wedding Cake, are matte and they have a pleasant, sweet scent. They aim to provide opaque, high pigment color with long wear. The permanent colors are $20 and the limited edition Lottie ones are $22.
I currently own 4 shades as seen via close-up shots below.
Creme Brulee This is likely the most popular, user-friendly shade. It’s a non-threatening, warm pink that makes a lovely everyday or bridal shade. It’s also an ideal one to mix with other colors too.
Macaroon I don’t really do nude lips as it washes me out so this is my go-to type of nude. I would describe it as a mauve/nude, flattering on most skin tones. I wore it for a photoshoot recently because it gives my lips enough color but isn’t distracting when paired with a more dramatic eye.
Lottie for Limelight-Ash I had to have this color as soon as I saw it. If you know me, you know that purple is my favorite lip color of all and I feel most myself wearing it. The formula seems to be the most opaque and most matte. I love the color and it looks amazzzing with green eyes.
Lottie for LimeLight-Mia This is a muted coral shade that is truly in the orange color family. Mia looks good on yellow undertones but could be iffy on pink undertones or deeper skin. I noticed this shade requires 2 layers for full opacity, unlike the others. I’ve heard it’s great for mixing with Creme Brulee.
- Flattering shades from bridal pink to deep purple
- Can be mixed to create custom shades
- Can layer lipgloss or other lipsticks on top
- Moderate price point
- Not super duper long-wearing
- Some shades seem more opaque than others
- Don’t dry down as fully as other liquid lipsticks. You can tell by the slight sheen on my lower lip in the photos.
Do I recommend the LimeLight by Alcone Enduring Lip Colors?
Yes. If you like liquid lipsticks, but find most of them too drying, you’ll like these. I almost always top mine with gloss because I just don’t like the feeling of any liquid lipstick. If you want super long-wearing, these may not fit the bill but I will tell you because I’ve tested many; those that wear a long time, feel very dry on the lips. Those that feel great don’t last all day. Can’t win ’em all!
