I hadn't heard of this line before, so I thought I'd pass on the info.
Some of the colours sound good, but I wish they had actual pictures of them all: http://www.spacenk.com/product/shop+by+brand/limecrime/200006731+magic+dust+circus+girl.do
Guess I will have to stop by one of the stores...

Word is they just re-pot TKB Trading pigments and jack up the price. TKB is way cheaper: http://www.tkbtrading.com/

..aaaaand while I won't say anything outright about the company owner, I would suggest not supporting them.
You know, cause the line is vegan.. oh, except for the beeswax.. oh, and carmine.

I heard nasty things to, from blogs to you tube videos. Working for goth-indie publications in the past I have learned about many small companies & some are awesome - a few are not. I always try to support the lil guy but this time around - no!

I've bought some stuff from The All Natural Face on etsy. It was really cheap and it seems to last FOREVER...

Agreed! The owner of Lime Crime is notorious, and not in a good way. A quick google reveals all.

Best example of the owner's idiocy: http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com/ ... guise.html

Yeah everything I heard about her made me really sour on the whole LimeCrime thing. At first I saw "vegan" red lipstick and was like "ah cool!" and then found out it wasn't actually vegan when she did that poll about MAKING it vegan, then I found out via Melisser that MAC Russian Red and Ruby Woo were already vegan, and I happily returned to ignoring the whole thing.
