Miners Icon Lipstick Review

I am still not over my obsession with dark colored lipsticks. Despite the sweltering summer heat- I still wear dark lip colors whenever I can! :p  I got this lipstick months ago and I think I have found a pretty near dupe for my favorite Lime Crime Poisonberry lipstick! Lets begin shall we? :)

When worn

Comparison- Icon is a bit lighter and has a warmer tint than Poisonberry and applies more evenly. Poisonberry is a bit darker and more purple. The purple tends to settle into fine lines and enhance dry/cracked lips so I usually prefer wearing Poisonberry over a plum/purple lip pencil while I can wear Icon on its own.

  • Buildable pigmentation
  • Comfortable wear- Moisturizing and creamy formulation
  • Beautiful rich plum shade
  • Affordable
  • Almost a good dupe for Poisonberry 

  • Does not last long due to the creamy formulation
  • Not available locally (bought mine online)

Overall Take
Icon is a beautiful rich plum shade that will flatter different types of skin tones since its undertone is not too purple and not too pink. If you're looking for a more affordable version of Limecrime's Poisonberry then Icon is a pretty good bet although it is not exactly an exact replica, the shade can hold up on its own though ;) 

Stay fabulous! xx
