I have 9 at the mo, Fluke, Choke, Strip, Lit, Cloud 9, Angel's Breath, Pink Pearl, Unicorn and Black Unicorn. All of them are insane. The glitter and the holographic/duochrome effect is second to none, I have tried Urban Decay's, Becca's, and a few other high-end brands who have attempted to enter the lip topper game. None of them matches up to Diamond Crushers. Also, these are made with natural micas and duochrome pigments, no nasty microplastics damaging aqueous ecosystems. They are not sticky as well so they all make amazing highlighters if you want a little bit of extra oomph! I plan on getting most of them as soon as I can afford to, these are a must in any makeup collection, especially if you love sparkle!
If you enjoy glitter you will enjoy this. I have shade CHOKE and I really enjoy it. I used it alone or on top of liquid lipstick and works fine both ways, doesn't feel heavy or tacky and lasts a long time, and don't feel the need to use a lot of product, this shade has blue and purple reflects, I will probably get other shades to try.
These are really good and look amazing over most lipsticks. Stayed on all day at a festival and layered really well when I topped it up in the evening. Have lent to a friend and loved it to. Would definitely recommend for anyone going for a holographic look.
A tad chunky on the lips, and doesn't work over some lipsticks, however, Choke is very pretty and can be used in a few different ways, so overall I think it is worth the money.
I have Gemini and I absolutely love its dazzling colour.
The best lip toppers around!
I have tried lip toppers from a lot of brands! Huda, Jouer etc. but these ones win! They are instant glitter lips! The formulas do differ from colour to colour though... I have cleopatra which needs to be built up and is best worn on top of another shade and Heirloom which is opaque and can be worn alone! Good buy!
I was a bit scared to order the Diamond Crushers at first after reading the reviews so I ordered just one shade (Heirloom) to try it out and I absolutely love it! The colour is just like pictured just after one application, the consistency isn't watery at all and at the same time not too sticky and "glossy". Plus it doesn't dry out my lips like other long-lasting lip shades but at the same time it lasts a while. The smell isn't too strong at all and I like it. Will be ordering more shades very soon!
Not sure how to feel
I was prepared to apply multiple layers for this to show up and it looks great (Trip). I didn't have consistency issues and I wasn't disappointed with the physical appearance of it. The smell though, is a whole other story. From the bottle, it smells great, like a sticky sweet strawberry candy. Once you apply it on your lips I would describe the unwelcome scent that tends to linger in your mouth and your nose as, strawberry flavoured bleach thrown on top of a flaming pile of gasolined poop. I'm going to be wearing it for a festival soon but I can't say I'm too excited.
I liked it
When I received them (I have fluke, trip and choke) I was a bit disappointed by consistency. You do have to put a few layers before the colour really shows up. However, if you use them on top of matte lipsticks or on cheeks as a highlighter (for a party) or even as an eyeshadow on your eyes, it works really well and shows colour/ shimmers really nicely. I would advise to play with the product more. But I do agree that the photos are a bit deceiving.
LOOOVE THEM, SUPER SPARKLE
I absolutely love these lip toppers, I have most of them and they're all great, really sparkly and beautiful, over liquid mattes and if worn alone does require a couple coats for opaque coverage. They dry matte which I love and feel cool and a little tingly; it doesn't budge. Unlike other lip toppers which are either too glossy and disappear or become grainy & muddy by mixing with the lip colour. I also use these as glitter eyeshadow toppers and highlighting my cheek bones.
Love these. Bought dope and trip. Loved them so much I came back and bought two more shades. Smells great too and lasts all day.
Soooo I have been buzzing to receive mine and they arrived today.
I ordered Fluke and Trip. First impressions were good, the packaging is really nice and the smell is to die for.
But, it pains me to say, I am really, really disappointed with both lipsticks.
You need about 4 layers in order to get decent coverage and once these have been applied, the product is really drying and stiff (allow drying time between each layer or the product just moves around) I deliberately applied one before lunch to see how it lasted but was further disappointed as most of it rubbed off and I ended up with tiny glitter specs all over my face. Definitely not what I'd expect from a Lime Crime product.

Finally a topper I don't hate !!!
I am not too keen on glossy/sticky toppers so I thought that I would never find one that would be suitable for me.
But Lime Crime heard my prayers and finally, there's a perfect product for my needs, I love to layer this on top of a matte lipstick for a budge-proof pop of shimmer and glitter.
It does give that shiny/wet look without the stickiness, furthermore, the shades are really unique and it dries quickly.
Overall I am a huge fan and I can't wait to try all the shades!
I love these so much! ((Tip to apply))
I now have a total of 3 (heirloom, Trip, and Choke) and I love them all. If you want them on bare lips you can either use one coat and keep it more a subtle shimmer (looks really cool when topped with a clear gloss) or put multiple layers on.
I also love putting them on top of lipsticks. One thing I must say about them is when applying them either on top of lipsticks or on their own: apply it and wait until fully dry and then take your finger to buff out the glitter so it's not as chunky.
Did not like it at all, so sheer and uneven.
I bought Gemini which is a beautiful shimmery blue and purple nearly holo colour, but unfortunately the application gave me a burn on my lower lip which was sore for 2 weeks. I think the chemicals inside this product are way too harsh and cause allergies and sores.
I love them so much
I purchased acid fairy and strip. Acid fairy is a beautiful glitter sheen and goes you can use it on the lips eyes and as a highlighter. It stays on a long time. Very pigmented and I wouldn't recommend putting it over another lipstick.
Packed with sparkle
I have the shade Lit, and I can promise it's beautiful. If wearing on its own, you would definitely need a couple of coats for the sparkle to really shine through; however when laid over an opaque lipstick, only one coat is needed. Great staying power and shine. It can be a little drying on the lips, but that is to be expected with a glitter product, so personally I don't have a problem with that. I also imagine they would work well as a highlighter and an eyeshadow. Will definitely be getting more shades.
I have Lit and Cleopatra, obsessed with lit and not mad about cleopatra. I'm not obsessed with cleopatra cuz unlike lit, the glitter looks bit too chunky to my liking. However, they are both packed with glitter and live up to their name "diamond crushers".
I was so excited to get LA as I'm a sucker for orange lippies. However, this is a red lip tint with glitter...the glitter is not as sparkly, and the tint leaves a bright red stain than orange...nothing like what's on the tube or photo. Needed three coat to build up something, and it's gone after a meal. I can make better lip look that lasts way longer with my better quality lip tints and other diamond crushers. Very disappointed.
I have heard nothing but bad things about Lime Crime and I absolutely know why. The shade I purchased was Trip. The colour of it is gorgeous but the smell and the consistency throws me for a loop. I should have done some research before buying it. I cannot stand the smell, it smells like a strawberry shampoo gone way way bad like it has expired. The consistency is too watery. Will not recommend at all. A few much better alternatives I believe would be the Anastasia ones or the Becca ones.
I bought two of these (Trip and Strip). To start with, the packaging is gorgeous and the actual lip colour looks insane, but I think it's fair to say I'm disappointed with this product.
Trip applies with literally 0 pigment and takes atleast 3 applications to fully show up. I just put on the third coat and it's spreading about and has gone patchy in some places. From a distance it actually does look wearable though, and would definitely look better w/ a full face of makeup on. Probably wouldn't buy this again.
Strip is virtually the exact same although slightly better pigment. So gutted about these products.
Not the best
Looks amazing under artificial light but looks patchy in natural light. Very runny and hard to apply, very difficult to get an even coat. On the plus side, the scent is very nice and would be good to wear for a few hours.
