Product: 
The Lime Crime Diamond Crushers formula is VERY thin in texture with a water weight feel on the lips that dry down to smooth feel on the lips with no sense of the glitters used in them. Most of these shade are barely tinted bases or clear bases that leave no stains on the lips.

Some of the shades in Cheap Thrill, Choke, & Unicorn has larger glitter/shimmer particles that tend the clump up and be more noticeable on the lips when a light is not directly hitting the product that just not a cute look in my opinion.

The glitter does flack off slowly throughout the day.

The scent faintly strawberries that dissipates quickly and I found these easy to remove with Micellar Water or just water if you soak your lips with a towel. But I did find that the shade Cheap Thrill smelled more like alcohol and less like strawberries.

Colour:
Lit is a rose gold with bright orange/gold shimmer.
Cheap Thrill is a clear based with rose & orange glitter with rose shimmer that appears darker on the skin when a light is not shining on it.
Choke is a pinky tinted based with bright rainbow glitter, But I found this shade to get chunky and leave specks of white on the lips
Unicorn is a clear based rainbow glitter with rose shimmer that appears darker on the skin when a light is not shining on it.
Acid Fairy is a pale mauve with bright gold/green shimmer.
Trip is a is a light lavender purple with bright pale aquamarine blue shimmer.

Wear: The Diamond Crushers I get 5-8 hours per shade depending on the amount of eating I do during the day. But these are easy to replay as needed as it doesn't disturb any other product underneath them. 

Packaging: The Lime Crime Diamond Crushers come in a clear plastic tube with a metallic pale pink embossed cap with foiled pink lettering on the tube. The applicator is a standard felt doe foot one.

The box art has the same pink foil lettering on both the cardstock and clear box options.

Verdict:
I like the base formula of these lip toppers, but the shimmer glitters the use in each shade makes a huge difference in the appearance of the shades and whether they look good or not.

The shades Cheap Thrill, Choke, Unicorn I would give a hard pass had I seen more reviews for these. The texture issue is more of the look of the product on the lip than how they feel and surprising they didn't feel chunk on the lips at all.You can make these look as good as the lip swatches on the website with 3+ layers on the lips, but a lip topper should work with other lip products and not need to be caked up on the lips unless you're doing pure editorial makeup looks with this stuff.

But the shades Lit, Acid Fairy, & Trip I highly recommend due to the fine shimmer they used helps to spread evenly on the lips. Just make sure that if you're interested in the other shades looks to how smooth the texture is in the lip swatches if you're going to take your best guess on which glitter size they used in them.
