No. I've found my bullet to already be squashed against the side of the tube, something which has not happened with my other products.

The cap also has cracked, so I can't lock it on.

It's a beautiful colour, but honestly, I'd rather just shop elsewhere, even if it takes me ages to find this colour again.

I don't like a lot of their drama, and it kind of concerns me that their reputation is SO bad, but I tried to be fair and be completely honest about the products without having any sort of sway one way or the other.

I'm too curious for my own good, so about six months ago I purchased the China Doll palette to see for myself how their quality is. I did a review here: http://www.calligraffitied.com/lime-crime-china-doll/

If it's not kosher to post our own reviews here, let me know and I'll edit it out, and add in a summary as well.

Lime Crime just isn't for me.

I bought the Limecrime Velvetine in Red Velvet, and I love it. The customer service was excellent. The order came promptly, and I had to change the delivery information (because I entered something wrong), and I had a very easy time communicating with them.

(Purchased from an Australian reseller so no comment on customer service)
I bought a Velvetine (Black Velvet) from Lime Crime before I read about the controversy surrounding the owner.

The opacity of the lip stain is fantastic and it dries down to a matte finish that's relatively kiss proof but the formula is very drying and it becomes uncomfortable after a couple of hours.
I honestly wish I wasn't sucked in by the marketing and had gotten a different product from a better indie company. I personally dont think $30AUD was worth it for the product and although the colour payoff is great the product itself is not worth the price.

My original comment was carried over from the old forum by the Admin account, so instead of editing it with my update, I'm going to make a new comment here.

Please, please don't buy from Lime Crime. Many people think the anti-LC brigade is just butthurt people circlejerking about the repackaging scandal the brand had when it first started, but I assure you there are a ton of issues that are ongoing and very current.

If the charity fraud, racist ad campaign (with no remorse, apology, or retraction when called out on it), lies about non-vegan ingredients, lawsuits threatened against multiple bloggers, rampant image theft, deletion of any complaints off their social media, and myriad other ethical issues don't deter you, consider the current card theft situation, which folks are suspecting is due to the brand failing to update their website security. Tons of people have had hundreds or thousands of dollars taken from their bank accounts, allegedly due to Lime Crime's negligence: http://jezebel.com/lime-crimes-website-is-hacked-customer-information-sto-1686744501

The main blog documenting Lime Crime's many ethical failings was Doe Deere Lies, but it has been removed from the internet (GUESS WHY), so a bunch of other resources have sprung up in its place (the first two are excellent dupe resources):
