LimeLife lipstick colors cover the spectrum from sheer colors that give a tint of color, to bold colors that make a statement. LimeLife by Alcone has different types of lip products, including a long-lasting liquid lipstick, and a creamy lip gloss. Here's a look at each of their lip products, and the colors available for each one.
About LimeLife Makeup
I won't go into a lot of detail about LimeLife by Alcone because you can read more about the company in my article about The History of LimeLife. But if you are not familiar with LimeLife, here is what you should know.
LimeLife has been providing makeup to professional makeup artists for over 70 years. They have worked with top makeup artists from Broadway, film, and TV to deliver makeup products that work for all ages, skin types, and skin tones. The secret to their makeup is that it is professional grade makeup. What the heck does that mean you're wondering? Well, in short it means that LimeLife makeup is designed differently from what you'd see at your local drugstore.
One of the key differences with LimeLife lipstick colors, verses other brands, is the amount of pigment in the lipstick. The professional formula in them means that you don't have to apply much in order to achieve the color you want. By allowing you to use less lipstick, it not only saves you money. But, it also helps the lipstick look more beautiful. It also feels nice because you don't have to apply tons of lipstick to get the look you want.
LimeLife Lip Colors
Here's a look at all of the lip products available from LimeLife. I'll give you a brief description for each type, and then keep scrolling to see the LimeLife Lipstick colors for each of the products.
Enduring Lip Color
The Enduring Lip Color from LimeLife is a long-lasting liquid lipstick. It comes in 17 shades, and it has a creamy professional formula that goes on as a liquid and then transforms to a velvety finish. This long-lasting lipstick has a matte finish with opaque color.
If you've tried other liquid lipsticks you may have been disappointed by how they made your lips feel. I know that I've tried some where the color stayed on nicely, but the lipstick dried out my lips and they felt terrible. I am happy to say, that with LimeLife's Enduring Lip Color, your lips will look and feel good.
One of the things that I love about LimeLife's Enduring Lip Color is that you can layer the lipstick with other lip products. Or, blend a couple of colors together to create unique color combinations. The unique formula gives you long-lasting lip color that takes you from breakfast to lunchtime, or longer, without touch-ups.
Enduring Lip Color Swatches
Here's a look at the 17 shades of LimeLife Enduring Lip Color. Creme Brulee is one of the original shades and continues to be a customer favorite. It is a universally flattering color, and it is a great coordinating shade for many of the lip liner or lip gloss colors.
Here's a picture of Red Velvet, an Enduring Lip Color shade that LimeLife introduced as part of the 2022 holiday collection and it was back again for the 2023 holiday launch. I love how beautiful this color is. It's a deeper red than the Cherry Pie shade, but for those who like a bold, red lip either shade is a winner.
Another beautiful ELC shade is Ruby Chocolate. This best selling color is a pink-brown shade that looks great on all skin tones. Wear alone, or pair with a lip gloss if you want extra shine on top. If you love a beautiful, deep lip color with purple tones in it, then you'll love Sugar Plum.
LimeLife's Perfect Lipstick may look like a “traditional” lipstick, but it is anything but. It comes in 15 gorgeous colors, and it has two different professional formulas. The first is a sheer lipstick that gives you a hint of color, and it is appropriately named- Take a Hint. It's a creamy, moisturizing lipstick that hydrates and nourishes your lips, while giving you color that is sheer and natural looking.
The Perfect Lipstick also comes in an opaque Power Pout formula. These LimeLife lipstick colors are highly pigmented and provide full coverage color. These shades add more color to your lips than the sheer formulas. Both formulas are creamy, rich, and are perfect for layering. By having two different types of lipstick, you can choose how much color emphasis you apply to your lips.
Perfect Lipstick Colors
One of the things that I love about the Limelife lipstick colors for the Perfect Lipstick is that there's an amazing range of neutral shades available. Here's a look at all of the Power Pout Shades and Take a Hint colors in neutral shades. These lipsticks are all great layering pieces, and their creamy texture blends beautifully when used together with Perfect Lip Liner, Enduring Lip Color or Lip Gloss.
Plum Luck is my favorite out of the Take a Hint shades. It has a beautiful purple hue, and it is a universally flattering shade that looks great on everyone.
Perfect Lip Gloss
Now onto one of my favorite LimeLife products and the one that I use on a daily basis. I switch off between LimeLife's Perfect Lip Gloss and Perfect Lipstick as my go-to for daily lip color. I love this lipgloss between it's not thick and sticky like other lip glosses I have tried.
This formula is smooth, creamy, and moisturizing. It's non-stick formula feels so nice on my lips, and I love that it pairs well with other lip color. Wear it alone, or on top of Enduring Lip Color or Perfect Lipstick to add extra shine to your lips. Available in 17 gorgeous colors, there's a shade for every occasion.
Perfect Lip Gloss Colors
All I can say about the LimeLife lipstick colors for their lip gloss is WOW! I love almost every single one of the colors. I mean they are all gorgeous colors, but I'm saying that I love to wear almost every shade. I mix and match the color based on my mood and what I feel like wearing. So some days I stick with a very light pink shade like Wish or Grace. Other days I lean towards the purple colors and go with Dream, Spirit, or Inspire.
Enduring Lip Liner
Like LimeLife's Enduring Lip Color, the Enduring Lip Liner is designed to last! It has a semi-matte finish and a formula that delivers high coverage that will last 6 hours or longer. You don't have to worry about the color feathering or transferring. And you'll love the lightweight feel.
Available in 12 shades, there's a color to match every skin tone, and to complement your favorite lipstick. And if you're thinking how can this lip liner get any better? Well, let me tell you my favorite feature. It has self-sharpening packaging. All you have to do is twist the cap to sharpen the tip. And just like that you have a sharp liner to perfectly line lips…every time!
Enduring Lip Liner Colors
There are so many beautiful LimeLife lipstick colors for the Enduring Lip Liner. And, plenty of neutral and natural shades so that you can find the right shade to blend with your natural lip color. However, there are also fun red and pink colors to blend with your favorite lipstick. While the sharp point makes it easy to draw a crisp line, you can also use these lip liners as base color on your entire lip.
LimeLife's Perfect Balm is a nourishing lip balm available in 5 shades. There is the Classic balm which is clear and has a natural eucalyptus and mint fragrance. There are also 4 tinted lip balms in shades called Pink Grapefruit, Melon, Ruby Red, and Dragon Fruit. I have an in-depth article about the Perfect Lip Balm, but in a nutshell this is a hydrating balm that can be used for your lips, cheeks, and lids. Made of shea butter, Vitamin E, sunflower seed oil, and a synthetic beeswax, this lip balm is one that your lips will thank you for.
LimeLife Lipstick Color Combinations
Here are a few pictures of some LimeLife lipstick colors that you can blend together to create pretty makeup looks.
Ingredients in LimeLife Lipstick Colors
LimeLife by Alcone is known for the quality ingredients that it uses in all of its products. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about the ingredients in LimeLife lip products as you can see the full list on each of the product pages. However, let me just highlight a few of the most common ingredients that people have questions about.
Titanium Dioxide– According to WebMD, “Titanium dioxide can boost and brighten colors because of how well it absorbs and also scatters light.” It helps define colors and prevent them from breaking down when exposed to sunlight and other elements.
Propylene carbonate is a safe ingredient used in cosmetics. It is a solvent used to decrease the thickness of a formula. In LimeLife's Enduring Lip Color, it helps provide a lightweight formula that spreads beautifully.
Bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2 is also found in LimeLife lip products. This ingredient is an emollient and is used to help soften and soothe your lips. It's also used to help with the texture of the lipsticks, so that they are creamy, lightweight, and hydrating.
Disteardimonium hectorite is another plant-based ingredient used to control the consistency of the formulas. It works together with the ingredients above to make sure that LimeLife lipsticks don't just look good, but they feel good too. With hydrating and nourishing formulas, these lip products won't dry out your lips.
Hydrogenated polyisobutene is used to add long-lasting moisture retention. That's why you'll find it in LimeLife lip products. It's one of the ingredients that helps make these lipsticks and lip gloss so hydrating.
Iron Oxides are used to help protect your lips from visible light, while it enhances the shades in makeup.
Discontinued LimeLife Lipstick Colors
In 2023 LimeLife decided to make room for new products by discontinuing colors that weren't as popular. One example of this is the candy apple shade of Enduring Lip Color. This was a red lipstick that competed with the cherry pie color. Cherry pie won out, so if you want a bold red lip, go with that. Devil's Food is another discontinued color. As an alternative, I would recommend Ruby Chocolate, Macaroon, Salted Caramel, Cocotini, or S'mores. These are all lipstick shades with neutral and brown hues in them.
LimeLife Lip Color Tips
What is your lipstick style? Are you a person who loves a matte lipstick that gives you a natural makeup look and perfect matte lip. Or, do you prefer a bold lip that makes a statement. Whichever look you prefer, LimeLife lipstick colors give you the flexibility to create the look you want. And because all of the lipsticks blend beautifully and work well together, you can layer and combine colors to create the perfect shade.
To create different shades and your own perfect lip color, start by choosing which one of the long-lasting base colors you want. Whether you use the Perfect Lipstick or Enduring Lip Color as your base, you can layer any other lip color or lip gloss on top to create buildable color that lasts.
