Review: Lime Crime Magic Dust in 'Twilight' and Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper

Today I bring you a review on two Lime Crime products from my last mail postMagic Dust in Twilight and Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper.

FACTS AND FIGURES
Magic Dust is a loose shimmer powder that comes in a sifter pot, helping you control how much comes out. I got the shade ‘Twilight’. Magic Dust is available in 15 more beautiful shades.

PRICE
$14.00
Buy it from Lime Crime.

MY OPINION
Do you see the unicorn symbol on the eyeshadow pot in the picture above? Doesn’t it look adorable? Packaging is one thing that attracts me in a product. The other thing is the name like ‘Magic Dust’. Don’t you think unicorn and magic dust is an enchanting combo? Reminds me of all the magical stories I read as a kid.
Here's how 'Twilight' looks on my eye.


Twilight is such a grand mix of purples. I don’t even know how to describe it. It is a beautiful violet and lavender and I also noticed some purple shimmer in it. Lime Crime describes it as ‘Soft lavender-purple with twinkles of violet.’ The colour alone makes me go wow. Loose powder eyeshadows are the most versatile of all. They are super-pigmented, can be applied wet to give that sleek, foil look and can be used as an eyeliner. Well, Lime Crime Magic Dust is definitely all three. With a dry brush it is well pigmented, applies and blends on like a dream. But when you apply it on top of an eye primer or with a wet brush then you get to know how insanely rich the colour can get. I think this shade control thing is pretty great; it helps you give that mellow, elegant eyes when you want or gives you that fancy look on night outs. The shimmer (which thank god is not too much like glitter tends to be) makes your eyes look bright. Without an eye base, I did experience some fall-out. I haven’t actually used for a whole day to see how long lasting it is.

RATING
Its colour power and beauty totally impresses me. I definitely want to try out some more shades from Lime Crime.

Buy it from Lime Crime.

MY OPINION
Eyeshadow primer is a base to your eyes. It helps in intensifying the colour and making it last long without creasing.
For so long I have been searching for a GOOD (by good I mean awesome) eyeshadow primer. And have never found The One. I have never built up the courage to spend on something as expensive as the MAC or Urban Decay primer. When Lime Crime sent me there Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper, my search ended. For starters just how cute the teal pot is.
Before I say anything else take a look at the swatch.


To all those MAC and Urban Decay lovers you MUST try this. So awesome, in so much less. Merely this swatch explains how intensified the eyeshadow gets with this base underneath. I applied a thin layer of the  primer with a finger over my eyes and it set on effortlessly. I topped it with Lime Crime’s Magic Dust in Twilight and I didn’t even know I could fall in love with the colour more.
The eyeshadow fit into every crook and cranny, evenly toned. And you know the best thing is that this primer is WATERPROOF. I touched my eyeshadow so many times later and it just refused to budge. It stayed crisp on my eyes as long as I wore it for about 8 hours, without any creasing. And I am sure if I had allowed it would have stayed fresh for a whole day. Especially, it is a wonder product for people with oily lids. Later you really need a good makeup remover to remove it. And not to forget this primer is totally fragrance-free.

RATING
Smooth formula, intensifies colour, no creasing, crisp eyeshadow all day – that is all I want from any eye primer and Lime Crime’s Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper really gives you all that. This is at least MY No.1 eye primer.

Don't forget to check out Lime Crime on their Website, Facebook and Twitter.

  7. Hey you were asking about polishes for stamping, I dont know if you would read my reply on my blog so posting here, you should do a one coat test for any polish that you want to use for stamping. Just apply one coat on your finger and if its opaque then itll work! Hope that helps!
