Yesterday, I created a look using Lime Crime's China Doll Palette and many of you were interested about this fun and whimsical palette. Keep on reading for my review, swatches and product shots!
In true Lime Crime fashion, the palette was in-cased in this super adorable envelope-style box! (Told you, Unicorn Mail!)
The actual palette itself is in a cute but sturdy tin case that is covered in what I believe is fish scales. The same pattern is on the eyeshadows.
This is Lime Crime's first palette/pressed shadows and they definitely do not fail in the pigmentation department. I was surprised at how intense the colors were and I love the texture of these. They are smooth, almost buttery and blend like a dream! They are very opaque and quite long lasting.
From Left to Right:
Fly Dragon Fly: A matte, warm, fiery red; surprisingly wearable.
Parasol: A beautiful matte, sky blue that is really bright for a pastel shade.
Goldfish: A gorgeous yellow gold shade with shimmery/metallic finish.
Jade-O-Lade: A unique and stunning matte, teal-ish forest green. My favorite.
Lotus Noir: A definite must in this palette, a matte and opaque black.

Overall, this palette is really nice and is a must-have if you're a big Lime Crime fan. The choice of colors are definitely unique and are unlike any other palettes I've seen. As you can tell from the swatches, they are really bright and intense. If you want a more toned down look, skip the primer. I'd say the only downfall is the inside of the palette (not a huge fan of the plastic surrounding the shadows), but like I said before, this is their first palette and there is always room for improvement! The palette is priced at $34.99 USD and can be purchased at limecrimemakeup.com.
(Note: I am aware of Lime Crime's history and recent controversy over this palette. However, I am an all-around makeup lover and will try out almost any brand (as long as they are cruelty-free) and will give anyone a chance. My reviews are on the products only and are 100% honest and un-biased.)
