Today is all about reviewing a little eyeshadow palette from Lime Crime, one that I was super excited to get my hands on and I am jazzed to review this. So much so that I’m just going to dive right in and get on with the review.
This is the Lime Crime Pocket Candy in the shade Pink Lemonade, you can pick this up on the Lime Crime website, it will run you $34.00 and it comes with five different shades. The shades in this one lean towards the warm side of things and I think they all go together spectacularly, they make a cohesive look and I feel like you could get quite a few different looks out of this palette, not too many though as they are all in the same kind of shade range.
Before I get too far into this I want to talk about the packaging a little bit, as I typically like to do. This packaging is extra special and extra adorable if you ask me. I think that this packaging is a bit bulky, I still really love this packaging. It reminds me of a Polly pocket, which is completely supposed to do and I really love that. It’s fun and it’s really very Lime Crime as well.
When you open up the palette it’s also pretty cute, if you ask me anyway. I like the way they are laid out, both in order and design. So, it’s safe to say that I enjoy this packaging as a whole.
Now, it’s time to get into the stuff that really matters, the textures and performance of the eyeshadows themselves.
These shadows swatch completely terribly, I guess they don’t look terrible but they kind of do, they look rather sheer and unexciting compared to what they look like in the packaging. But, I try not to base all my opinions on swatches because I know for a fact that sometimes things surprise me. However, these didn’t. I have never had eyeshadows from Lime Crime before but I was kind of expecting something big and somewhat bold, but these just didn’t hit the mark for me. Now, don’t get me wrong, I did create a look that I rather enjoyed using this palette but I haven’t really gone back to it since, so maybe I need to give it another shot. But, for right now, I am just not impressed with this and think that these weren’t pigmented at all.
The thing about these is that they did blend pretty well, sure the end result of the look that I ended up creating was a bit soft and almost sheer, but they blended how they were supposed to pretty much.
Overall, I don’t think I’m loving this palette and probably would suggest that you just pass this one over. If my opinion on this changes I will for sure update you guys.
Have you guys tried the Pocket Candy’s before?
