So I am back from my holiday (a week on the Gower peninsula thanks for asking 😉 ) and am super excited to be back to posting on my blog. Before I start this review I want to make it VERY clear to my readers I don’t want this to turn into a “Bash Lime Crime” post. This is a review on the product NOT the company’s past actions. (Information on this is available online should you wish to read it)
I got the palette from http://www.love-makeup.co.uk for the sale price of £14 + the sites £3.50, which also saved me money on import duty, and although it wasn’t bought direct from Lime Crime there must be some magic unicorn glitter on that parcel as it arrived the next day!
The palette is in a gorgeous, and I do mean GORGEOUS gold box designed to look like a golden envelope. It is so unique, so adorable and I have to keep it in its box because I love it so much. It really is beautifully designed so well done Lime Crime! (Love-Makeup also packaged the item very well too!) The actual palettes packaging isn’t something that, as a makeup student, I’d want in my kit bag because….well…it is a bit childish looking. It’s gorgeous and fun yes, but I’m not really sure I’d wish to get it out on a set. Products like MAC are much better suited for that role.
|It’s eyeshadow not paints…PROMISE!|
While I love, as in LOVE the design on the tin of the palette…it does look and feel worryingly like a kids paint set; from the aluminium case to the plastic insert. However I’m far from knocking the gorgeous colours of it or the gold unicorn!
