Lime Crime?

If any of you follow me on Twitter or read my Facebook, you know I'm on a quest for some unusual lipsticks. Especially in a gorgeous lavender color. My first instinct was to head over to MAC and see what they had, but in finding out I had missed their awesome Lavender Whip by two years, I was sad. Thus in my research, I discovered the much talked about company Lime Crime. (This may be old news to some of you, but hey I'm slow).
The founder of the company Doe Deere, claims that she is the queen of the unicorns. This is pretty evident by they unicorn lipstick tubes. I think that's a fun touch, and brings me back to childhood.
The lipsticks come in a range of crazy colors (since this photo was taken, the mint and yellow have been discontinued), I was most captivated by D'lilac, (second row, middle photo) Airborne Unicorn, (first row, third photo) and Oh No She Didn't (bottom row, first photo).

I'd love to try these gorgeous colors out, but there is one thing stopping me from purchasing. It's the fact that Lime Crime has been shrouded in controversy seemingly since the birth of the company. The company was notorious for repackaging eyeshadow and reselling under their name. That doesn't bother me at all, what bothers me was the attitude of Doe Deere when confronted with the issue. I'm not going to delve into it too deeply. If you want to read about the controversy, THIS beauty blog dives right in.

I'd really like to try some out but the review of the actual lipstick seems to be hit or miss.
Should I go for it? Are there any other brands selling colors like this? Help me out!
