Hooray for another Lime Crime Fantasy Palette! Regular readers will be well aware that Lime Crime is one of my brand obsessions, I just adore everything they do, if I had made a make up collection it would have been very similar to Lime Crime. Last week I ordered the latest offering from CutECOsmetics, I’ve only used it once so far, but wanted to show you it ASAP!
The outer packaging is the same as the Lime Crime China Doll Palette, which you can see more pictures of on my previous review. The special thing to notice is the box opens like an envelope, which is a style of box I haven’t seen around very much.
For just under £24 you get four highly pigmented eye and cheek colours encased in this pretty purple tin, each pan is embossed as with the previous palette. Again, the only downfall is the slightly naff black plastic tray that holds them in place, which reminds me of children’s paint set. I’ll let them off though as it really is the only thing I can complain about.
The four pastel colours are all highly pigmented matte colours. The pink and orange would be lovely on cheeks as well as eyes. The silver is a sparkly metallic, with very fine glitter in it, again, this could be used as a cheek highlighter.
Here’s the make up look I wore using the palette for the first time, I used the pink, green and lilac with the silver as a highlighter in the tear ducts. I used Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils gel liner in Black Cherry for my flicks, Mii Cosmetics blusher in Kisser and my lipstick is from Anna Sui, which I will review soon.
Sorry I’m not very smiley, this was the best of the bunch for showing the make up!
The colours in the palette are lovely for the daytime, a great way to wear colour without being over the top, I found them very easy to blend together too. Here’s a close up.
I didn’t do any swatches, because I don’t like to photograph swatches, plus there are plenty of amazing ones already online. I used the Lime Crime Candy Eyeshadow Helper primer underneath these colours and found that it lasted throughout the day. I’m so pleased I picked up this palette and will be sure to share with you any other looks I do with it.
Have you tired Lime Crime? What did you think? Do you like pastel eyeshadow?
