Finally got round to reviewing this little beauty! It’s the third palette in the Addicted To Pretty series by Sugarpill Cosmetics, called the Heartbreaker Palette.
Today’s been another lazy Sunday, a great opportunity for a better mess around with the Chinadoll Palette by Lime Crime.
I thought I’d keep it pretty simple creating a sort of smokey eye look focusing on the colour Fly Dragon Fly from the Chinadoll Palette.
The main colour I’m going to be using for this look is Fly Dragon Fly – the fiery red – so it’s a perfect look for those of you with green eyes as the reddy / orangey tones will really make your eye colour stand out!
Yesterday my Lime Crime Chinadoll Palette came in the post and I can’t wait any longer to review it! I know it’s only been a day but I’ve been so excited for it coming and now it’s finally here it’s got me head over heels! Sounds pretty crazy talking about an eyeshadow palette but I dare you not to love everything about it.
When the trademark purple box arrived yesterday afternoon I knew I was in for a treat! Lime Crime gets me so excited about makeup, their packaging is so fun and their Chinadoll Palette is no exception. I was just expecting the tin palette when I opened the box but I was surprised to find the palette beautifully presented in a gold envelope style box – just as though it had come by unicorn mail!
EDIT: Here’s the review if you’ve stumbled upon this post!
Exciting news! Lime Crime released their Chinadoll Palette yesterday and I managed to get my hands on one
It contains five high pigment, outrageously bright eyeshadows in a gorgeous purple and gold tin. Look out for a review coming up or even better sign up to email updates so you don’t miss a thing!
I’m also going to be doing a tutorial based around this palette so I’d love to hear your suggestions for a look – which colours you’d like to see me use the most, or what kind of look you guys would like to see!
I was in the mood for experimenting the other day, so I came up with this very subtle gold look! I usually just go for a neutral smokey eye then black eyeliner to finish, play it safe, but I thought I best make use of all the make up I’ve acquired over Christmas. I picked a product at random to base the look on, so here it is, my eye look based on Nymph!
Nymph by Lime Crime is a loose powder eyeshadow, it’s very easy to layer and blend to achieve the look you want. It’s a creamy ivory colour with a gold shine to it – lovely on it’s own or with other colours. I decided to use different gold tones to make this eye look, but with Nymph as the main colour all over the lid and towards the brow bone.
Yesterday I quickly posted about my recent Sugarpill order and today I put the customs mishap behind me and tried out this extremely bright palette!
I ordered the Burning Heart Palette – a quad of pan eyeshadows by Sugarpill. In the palette they look super bright and pigmented, very exciting as I mostly go for neutrals! The Burning Heart palette is made up of Flamepoint – a gorgeous fiery orange, Buttercupcake – a warm bright yellow, Love+ – a rich crimson red and Poison Plum – a vibrant royal purple. The palette cost $34 (about £21), pretty good going to say that individually the eyeshadows are $12 (about £7) so it’s really great value for money!
