Marie Antionette inspired (Lime Crime review and makeup look) :)

Hey guys! ^-^ This summer I entered one of Makeupbee‘s contests with this Marie Antoinette inspired look, which I called “Would you like some cake?” I was so happy when I found out that I was one of the winners! 😀 Thank you very much for those who voted for me!! ❤ The prize was these wonderful products from Lime Crime!

Here is the look I entered the contest with:

I’ve fimed a tutorial for this look, but this time I used the pink and purple colors from the palette I won. Also, I did a review of the products in the video! ;D

This is the look I did in the video:

  • Lime Crime – Candy eyed eyeshadow helper

Review of the Lime Crime makeup products:

Palette D’Antionette:

This beautiful palette has 4 vibrant matte colors called Royal Flush, Absinthe-Minded, Macarooned and Ribbonesque, and 1 shimmery, silver color called Mercurious. I think this is the perfect combination of pastel colors, which will make any look super cute and pretty! ❤

I also got their fabulous primer, which I’ve used in the bottom swatch-picture! 😀

The palette costs 34,99 $ and you can get it here 🙂

Uniliners:

I got these three liners. The black one is called “Quill”, the blue “Blue Milk” and the neon yellow “Citreuse”. I love that Lime Crime has colorful liners you can choose from and they are so pigmented! The best thing about them has to be the precision they give! The applicator is very small, so it’s easier to create tiny details and to built up your liner. 😀 I’ve seen so many amazing looks created with these uniliners, so my excitement for these was very high. I must say they haven’t dissapointed! ❤

Each uniliner costs 13,99 $ and you can get them here. 🙂

Lip stick:

Lime Crime is probably most famous for their colorful, creamy lip sticks, with the cutest packaging, (which I love!) I already have one called Glamour 101 and now I got this one, called Coquette. Nude lipsticks don’t usually look very good on me, but this one has some peach to it, so a small amount applied with my fingers, looks wonderful! ^-^

Their lip sticks cost 15,99 $ each and you can check out all the awesome colors, here. 🙂

I hope that you found this short review helpful and that you liked the look! 😀

Review: Makeup Geek eyeshadows!

This is a review of my Makeup Geek eyeshadows. You’ve probably seen me using these eyeshadows in a lot of my makeup looks! 😀 For those of you who don’t know, Makeup Geek (MUG) is a makeup company, created by the gorgeous Marlena from the Youtube channel “MakeupGeekTV.”

I’ve already done a review on their “Starter kit”, which you can read about, here. Some of the eyeshadows in this kit, I haven’t added to this review, since I’ve already talked about them. 🙂

The packaging these eyeshadow pans come in are very similar to MAC’s packaging, but a lot more fun and pretty! 😉

These shadows are the smoothest ones I’ve every tried! 😀 They’re also super pigmented, blends beautifully and they are of very good quality! An other positive thing about these shadows, is that they’re cruelty-free! Right now, there are 56 different colors to choose from and you can get them in both pans and compacts.

If you buy the eyeshadows in pans it’s very practical to place them in palettes. I’m using my Z-palettes, where the shadows fit perfectly! As you can see, I have one colorful palette and one more “natural”.

Here are lots of swatches:

Purples:

Wisteria is such a pretty, pale lavender color! It has a matte finish and it looks so good on the lid!

Fairytale is a beautiful lavender eyeshadow, with a matte finish.

Duchess is a medium to dark, cool purple eyeshdow, with a matte texture. It would be verry pretty on the lid or in the crease, for a purple smokey eye! 😉

Twilight is a light brownish, purple color, with a shimmery finish. This eyeshadow has a gorgeous shine to it and I definitely think Bella would have worn this beauty! ;D

I love what they’ve written about the eyeshadow on the Makeup Geek page:

No pasty vampires watching you while you sleep. No werewolves trying to steal your heart. Just a shimmery purple taupe eyeshadow. (And if you’re lucky..you might just sparkle in the sun…) 

Last Dance is a plummy brown color with a satin finish. This one would look great in the crease, with Twilight on the lid! ^-^

Sensuos is a dark, shimmery plum color, with flecks of silver. I love to use this one in the crease, to add dimension.

Greens:

Fuji is one of my favorite colors out of these! It is a gorgeous matte, lime green shadow, which I love to use on my lid!

Pixie Dust is a shimmery, goldish green eyeshadow, that is so bright and pretty!

Dirty Martini is a true olive green color, with a matte finish.

Shimmermint is a metallic, mint green color, with some gold shimmer to it. It’s a beautiful color, but I wish that the mint was more vibrant. This one I love to blend out green crease colors with! 🙂

Appletini is a shimmery, apple green with some gold shimmer to it!

Envy is a metallic, dark green color. This one is also shimmery.

Black and White: 

White Lies is a matte white, which is perfect as a highlight!

Ice Queen is a frosty, shimmery white color. If you have all matte colors on your eyes, this eyeshadow will be perfect as a highlight on your brow bone and in the inner corner of your eyes! 😉

Mercury is a metallic, shimmery silver eyeshadow. This would be pretty to use on the lid, to spice up a black smokey eye!

Stealth is a matte, true grey. This is my first matte grey, which I’ve wanted for a long time!

Galaxy is a metallic, deep silver color. It has some sparkle to it.

Corrupt is the blackest matte black you’ll ever find! I use this all the time. Be careful not to get too much fall out with this one though, (only use a little product at a time.) That’s all that is needed, with that crazy pigmentation! ;D

Browns:

Bada Bing is a deep brown eyeshadow with flecks of gold. This is the perfect brown crease color, for a night out! 🙂

Brown Sugar is a warm copper brown, with a shimmery finish.

Goddess is a very pretty metallic copper color! This looks gorgeous on the lid, with Brown Sugar in the crease! 😀

Latte is a matte, medium brown. It looks good in the crease, for a brown, everyday look!

Pretentious is a metallic, bronze eyeshadow.

Homecoming is a medium brown with gold shimmer. The shine from this one is amazing!

Blues:

Unicorn is a shimmery, blue purple. 🙂

Neptune is a matte, bright blue shadow. It is not the most pigmented, but when you build it up, it becomes very vibrant, (something you might see in the picture.) 😉

Poolside is my absolute favorite MUG color! It’s a bright, shimmery blue with some gold shimmer to it. The picture really doesn’t give this color justice! It is just stunning! ❤

Peacock is a deep teal blue, with a matte finish.

Sea Mist is a shimmery turquoise eyeshadow.

Mermaid is a metallic teal with flecks of gold.

Yellow and Orange:

Chickadee is a matte yellow color. The color kind of reminds me of mustard… In a good way, hehe 🙂

Manderine is a bright orange with flecks of gold.

Mango Tango is a peachy, coral color, which I use a lot! It has tiny flecks of gold. ^-^

Yellow Brick Road is a shimmery, pale yellow.

Gold Digger is a metallic gold. It’s the first color I’ve found that is a true gold, not a bronze gold. ;P

Bleached Blonde is a pale gold, with a shimmery finish.

Pink and Red:

Cinderella is a pale, shimmery pink/ coral eyeshadow, which I love to use on the lid with Mango Tango in the crease. 🙂

Country Girl is a pink and brown color, with a shimmery finish.

Razzleberry is also one of my favorite Makeup Geek eyeshadows! It’s a bright raspberry, pink/red color, with gold glitter. ^-^

Cupcake is a matte, medium pink shadow. I like to use this one on my lid, with Country Girl in the crease, for an everyday pink look. 😉

Bitten is a deep maroon red, with a matte finish.

Burlesque is a beautiful, deep metallic burgandy eyeshadow.

Here are some of the makeup looks I’ve created, using Makeup Geek eyeshadows!

Colorful looks:

More “natural” looks:

The Makeup Geek web store ship worldwide and the shipping cost, I think is great, compared to many other stores I’ve bought from! 😀

Both the eyeshadow pans and the compacts contain 1,8g/ 0,064oz of products. The pans cost 5,99 $ and the compacts, 7,99 $. This I think is a great price for the amazing quality you get!

I hope this review was helpful! Take care! ❤

Sugarpill Cosmetics, Heart Breaker palette – Review!

Hi lovelies! Now I’ve tried Sugarpill’s newest palette for a while and I’m loving it! ❤ I thought I’d tell you a bit about it today, show some swatches and compare the shadows to other eyeshadows. 🙂

The packaging is super pretty and cute, like all the other Sugarpill packaging. The palette itself has a blue cover this time, compared to the two other palettes in the Addicted to pretty collection, ”Sweet Heart” and ”Burning Heart”, which have a pink one. ^-^

The palette contains 4 colors, called Acidberry, Velocity, 2AM and Mochi. They are very vibrant, pigmented and to blend with these colors is super easy!

Here are the swatches I took of the eyeshadows. I’ve built up the colors in the pictures, so that you can see their full potencial! In the first picture, I’ve used a primer and in the second one, I haven’t:

With primer:

Without primer:

As you can see, there’s not a huge difference! I use primer in every look anyway, but I thought I’d show you how amazing the quality of these are, even without one! 😉

Acidberry is a bright, matte lime color, with slightly pearl sheen. This one is the least pigmented out of all of these eyeshadows, but it’s my favorite! The color is just so beautiful and vibrant and as you can see from the swatches, when you build them all up, Acidberry is equally as strong and good as the other colors! 😀

Velocity is the perfect royal blue! It’s a matte, bright eyeshadow! ❤

2AM is a matte, medium purple eyeshadow, with some pearl sheen to it. The color is kind of a mixture between Sugarpill’s Poison Plum and Dollipop, which i like, because it makes it blend very well in with these two!

Mochi is a light aqua, turquise color, which also has a slightly pearl sheen to it. It is matte and the most pigmented shadow in the palette. I think it’s a very unique color, because I’ve never seen one just like it! I’ve compared it with a few colors in this review, but they’re not super close to the color.

Here are a few comparisons:

These are the lime green eyeshadows that I have and I thought I’d compare Acidberry with the other two. Fuji and Acidberry are the most pigmented and as you can see, Acidberry is the most vibrant one out of them all.

Royal Sugar is my absolute favorite eyeshadow, and Velocity is a matte version of it. Very beautiful! ❤ I’ve also compared it to Sugarpill’s Afterparty, if you wanted to see the difference between them. 🙂 The MUG eyeshadow in Neptune can be a dupe for Velocity. MAC’s Marine Ultra pigment is also very close, but it’s a bit powdery and not as pigmented.

The closest eyeshadow I have to 2AM is Makeup Mekka’s shadow in Fetish. But 2AM is slightly darker and has a matte texture. The NYX color in the picture is from my NYX box of eyeshadows and doesn’t have a name.

These eyeshadows aren’t too similar to Mochi, but they were the closest ones I had. Here you can see what a light and beautiful aqua, turquoise color it is! ❤

Here’s a look I did, using all of the colors in the palette:

All in all I’m very happy with this palette! From my personal taste, these colors are perfect! And I know I will be using them a lot, like I do with the other Sugarpill eyeshadows! If I’m going to compare them to Sugarpill’s other two palettes, they are just as pigmented, only lighter than the other shadows. Poison Plum, Love+ and Dollipop are slightly more pigmented though!

The eyeshadows are cruelty free and Acidberry, Mochi and Velocity are vegan as well. Each shadow contains 4 grams/ 0,14 oz of product. The palette costs 34 $ at www.sugarpillshop.com and you can also get the eyeshadows individually for 12 $ each. I think the price of the palette is great, because of the amazing quality and how much product you get! 😀

I hope this review was helpful! ❤

Review – Sugarpill Cosmetics Chromalusts!

I’ve had some time to try out my newest Sugarpill chromalusts, so now I’m of course reviewing them! 😀 I already have a review on the Sugarpill palettes and 5 other loose eyeshadows, here!

The packaging of the Chromalusts is very cute, like the rest of the Sugarpill packaging. They come in a jar, where you can see the Sugarpill logo on the lid and the name of the shadow, underneath the jar.

Here are the 7 loose eyeshadows I’m reviewing today:

Swatches, (with a primer) :

Lumi is a shimmery white with lots of tiny turquoise sparkles! It’s very pretty as a highlight,but you can also use it on the lid or over any matte color, to make it shimmery. If you apply this shadow over a dark base, you will get a beautiful, shimmery blue color! Weight: 6 grams

Starling is a beautiful medium blue, with a metallic sheen to it! Weight: 4,5 grams.

Magentric is a deep magenta color, with a shimmery, metallic finish. It also has a pretty, turquoise sheen to it! Weight: 4 grams.

 Tipsy is a gorgeous green, with a shimmery finish! Weight: 4,5 grams.
Hysteric is a metallic, shimmery, purple color, with beautiful turquoise and green sparkles! Weight: 5 grams.

Goldilux! I just have to say “Wow!” You wont fin a more amazing color! It’s one of my favorite colors of all time! It’s a metallic, true gold, which is super vibrant, bright and shimmery! The first time I swatched this color, my jaw dropped and my eyes saw glitter, stars and sparkles! *-* It’s just SO pretty! I like to use it everywhere: on the lid, the lower waterline, as an eyeliner, on my brows and my lips! You can even use it as a body shimmer! 😀 Weight: 5 grams.

Stella is a very vibrant, black shadow, with lots of gorgeous rainbow sparkles to it! This is perfect for a black smokey eye or as a liner! 😉 Weight: 4,5 grams.
Overall, I love all of the colors! ❤ The pigmentation of these is just brilliant! They’re super vibrant, smooth and are very easy to blend! Remember to pack the colors onto the lid, instead of swiping them, so you don’t get any fall out with these loose eyeshadows! 🙂

The reason why the weight varies from each chromalust, is that they fill the jars to the top and some shadows are fluffy, while others are more dense!

As you can see from the packaging, these shadows are cruelty free and vegan! 🙂 Each of these beauties costs 12 $, which I think is a good price for the amount of product you get. They’ll last you forever! I’ve used them a lot, but they don’t even look used! xD You can get them at www.sugarpill.net and they ship internationally! 😀

Lime Crime Chinadoll Fantasy Palette – Review!

I’ve used this palette for a couple of weeks now and I thought I’d let you know what I think about it. 🙂 I’ve been super excited about this palette and I think I bought it about 10 seconds after they launched it! xD I got it after two weeks (I live in Norway) and I recieved it with a broken black eyeshadow. I was so upset, since I had been so excited about it. The black color covered all of the other colors and the rest of the package. This was not Lime Crime’s fault, but I sent them an e-mail to hear what I could do. I thought I had to go and complain at the postal office, but after only 10 minutes, they e-mailed me back telling me that they were going to send me a new one! 😀 My day was saved! I must say that their customer service is the best one I’ve been in contact with! They were so nice and super fast at replying! I have to thank Lime Crime for my beautiful, new palette! It’s perfect! 😀

Over to the palette itself. These are Lime Crime’s first pressed eyeshadows and they did definitely not disappoint! The palette consist of five bright colors, which are all very pigmented, smooth and easy to blend. I think all of the colors (except for the black) are very unique. I don’t have any colors similar to these. So it’s a great palette for color lovers like me! 😉

In the package, you get the Chinadoll palette, the Chinadoll card, a cute Lime Crime sticker and a sample of my favorite primer! ❤

The palette comes in this pretty, gold “envelope”.

The shadows come in this super cute, purple tin case. It’s decorated with a gold unicorn, which symbolises Lime Crime.

And here are the colors! This kind of reminds me of a painting box, something I think is super cute!

Swatches of the eyeshadows:

Fly Dragon Fly is a fiery, true red, that is a bit on the orange side. It has a matte texture and is very pigmented. It doesn’t stain, like a lot of reds do. Yay!

Parasol is such a pretty light blue, matte color. I have always been looking for a true baby blue color, like this one, which is this pigmented! The shadow is perfect to place on the lid or over a white liner on the waterline, for a pop of blue.

Goldfish has a very unique color, since it’s both yellow and gold at the same time. It is a metallic color and the only one of the shadows with some shimmer to it. It’s very vibrant and pigmented.

Jade-o-Lade is a matte, rich jade/teal color. I think this is my favorite shadow in the palette, because I just love colors like this! It’s also very pigmented!

Lotus Noir is a matte, black eyeshadow. The pigmentation isn’t as good as the other colors in the palette, but the only black that I have with more pigmentation than this one, is the MUG Corrupt. But compared to the MUG shadow, it doesn’t leave any fall out. So if I need a good black, with no fallout, I’ll use Lotus Noir.

Here you can see the Lime Crime Candy eyed eyeshadow helper, (the primer). On the left side, is the full size box and on the right is the sample you get with the Chinadoll palette. It might look small, but you need very little to cover your eyes, and it will last you a very long time! As I’ve said before, this is my favorite primer, so I’m super happy that you get to try it with the palette! 🙂

A look I just did, using all of the colors in the palette, (I mixed the yellow with the red to get a orange shadow for the coins, if you didn’t see the red, lol) ^-^

Over all, I truly love this colorful palette! All the colors are stunning and I will use them a lot, for sure! I really don’t have anything bad to say about it! 🙂 An other plus is that the Chinadoll palette is vegan and cruelty free! 😀

Each eyeshadow consist of 1,3 grams of product and the palette costs 34,99 $. They ship worldwide and you can get it at www.limecrimemakeup.com. 🙂

I hope this was a helpful review! ^-^

Have a wonderful day!

Lime Crime – Review!

I’ve been trying out some Lime Crime products for a week now and thought I would share my thoughts about it, with you! 🙂 I bought three loose eyeshadows, one lipstick and one lip gloss. The primer I’ve had for a couple of months already. The packaging is so cute! ❤

The loose eyeshadows (Magic Dusts) I have, are Troubadour, Abracadabra and Lime Criminal. Love the names! 😀 They are all very shimmery colors and in the box you can see that they contain lots of sparkle! But as you can see from this look, they are shimmery, but they don’t look too sparkly on the lid, which I think is great! I think they have good pigmentation, but I had to apply a couple of layers to get the satisfied strength. They are easy to blend and the colors are beautiful! 🙂 Net weight: 2 g / 0.07 oz.

Swatches:

Troubadour: The perfect baby blue color!

Abracadabra: This is a beautiful, vibrant pink shadow, with subtle blue sparkles.

Lime Criminal: A shimmery, true lime color. Really gorgeous!

The Candy eyed eyeshadow helper:

This primer is amazing! It’s my new favorite one, which I use every day! 😀 So my beloved Too Faced Shadow Insurance is replaced with this cutie. 😉 Here is what Lime Crime says it does:

  • Prevents creasing for up to 24 hours
  • Makes your eye makeup waterproof
  • Intensifies color and keep it vibrant
  • Comes off with waterproof makeup remover or lotion

It definitely does exactly what it says! I’ve never experienced any creasing when using it and it grabs on to the shadow so well, even better than the Too Faced one! I can confirm that it is waterproof, because I have even cried, (don’t worry, it was tears of joy 😉 ), without the makeup even moving a bit! :O Lime Crime says the eyeshadow helper is formulated to withstand heat, sweat and even the oiliest of eyelids! My eyes are very dry and it works wonders for me too! ^^ It contains 7 g/ 0, 25 oz. of product.

Glamour 101 lipstick:

This gorgeous lipstick has the perfect wine red color I’ve been looking for! It’s a more deep red than the picture shows, because the exact color didn’t show up on camera. :/ Lime Crime describes it as a brown-based retro red. It is extremely pigmented and smooth. I used it when I went to the movies the other day and it stayed in place all day! 🙂 I would recommend lining your lips with a lip liner before applying this, to prevent feathering. Glamour 101 is a part of Lime Crime’s Lip Noir Collection and is a limited edition lipstick. It contains 3.5 g / 0.12 oz. of product.

Candy Apple lip gloss: 

The lip gloss is a part of this winter’s Carousel Gloss Collection and it is a deep ruby red color, filled with beautiful glitter! 😀 I love this lip gloss! It is very pigmented and applies smoothly. Apply a lip liner with this gloss as well. Remember blotting the inner part of your lips a few times, because it will transfer to your teeth if you don’t. Amount of product: 3.5 g / 0.12 oz. The color of the lipstick is closer to the color of the lip gloss, that this picture shows!

Candy Apple looks really good over Glamour 101. Together, these two lip products look even more vibrant! 😀

All in all I love the Lime Crime products I’ve got and the best part is that they are cruelty-free and most of them are vegan! The eyeshadows cost 13,99$, the lipsticks are 15,99$ and the lip glosses cost 16,99$. I think they are a bit expensive, but they’re very good! You can find these products, here.

I hope this review was helpful!

Buxom Mix & Mingle set – review and swatches!

This weekend I recived this Buxom set, which I won in the Makeup Geek Weekly Challenge. 😀 I’ve tryed it a few times now and thought I’d show you some swatches of the lip products! The set contains 4 mini lip sticks and 4 lip glosses.

Buxom is a Bare Escentuals line and I didn’t know they had this line before I got this set. Now, I’m glad I got to try out some of their products! All of them smell like delicious caramel and chocolate, which I like. 🙂 The colors are so pretty and natural, which is great for me, because I always do very dramatic eye makeup and these will tone the whole look down a bit. They contain vitamin A and E to make the lips soft and they are ment to create fuller looking lips. I think my lips got slightly fuller with these, but not dramatically. You get a tingly feeling when you first apply these. This is because the lip stick and gloss is making your lips a bit sore and in that way plumpy.

The lip sticks are matte and so smooth! I love the way they’re created, because you can use it as a lip liner as well as a lip stick! I think they were easy to apply and they lasted for hours! When I put on one of these this morning I thought I’d touch it up a bit after 2-3 hours. But to my surprise it still looked perfect! 😀 So I’ll definitely be wearing these more, on a daily basis. Here are the swatches of the lip sticks:

The lip glosses or as it says on the packaging, the big and healthy lip polishes, have lots of gold sparkle to them and they are very pretty! But they are a bit sticky and create lines in the outer corners of my lips, especially if I wear them over the lip sticks. Other than that, they’re good. Here are the lip polish swatches:

Here are my favorites, on my lips:

 

All in all, I love the colors, smell and how long lasting these Buxom lip products are! I don’t mind my lips looking a bit fuller and more sparkly. 😀 The only negative thing, is the slightly sticky lip glosses. But I think I can survive that 😉

This is a limited edition set that costs 39 $, but has a value of 72 $. It’s out of stock right now, but when it hopefully comes back, you can buy it here or get the products individually at Sephora.

I hope you liked this review!
