Lime Crime Magic Dust Eyeshadows - Swatches & Review

I heard Lime Crime was discontinuing their Magic Dust Eyeshadows and I went perusing through the list of available stock. There were some awesome colors, and I googled some swatches (don't we all?) and bought a handful of them. These are my first Lime Crime products and I wanted to share my experience!

Since they are on sale, they may or may not be available. Currently, they're on sale for $6.99 (originally $13.99) and are in limited quantities. I've linked where you can get them, so hopefully they're still in stock if you're interested! Vegan and cruelty free!



I'm having some issues with my camera so please bear with me as I'm trying to learn how to take pictures of products that show true color! These are mainly just to show you comparisons and packaging. Isn't the purple awesome? I love the art on top also - who doesn't love a unicorn?



On to individual colors ...

Lime Crime Lime Criminal is a gorgeous shimmery bright lime green. LOVE this color. It's much brighter than my usual fare of neutrals but I can't get enough of it.

Lime Crime Twilight is a gorgeous soft lavender with tons of pretty sparkles!

Lime Crime Cupcake Thief is a great shimmery light pink. Great for a highlight or highlighter.

Lime Crime Empress is a gorgeous vibrant royal purple.

Lime Crime Nymph (sold out) is a great white gold (duochrome?) shadow. I like this one for an inner eye highlight or cheek highlighter.

Now the fun swatches!! These were done with my fingers on the back of my hand, top row on bare skin, bottom row over Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper.


They have good pigmentation on their own, but over the primer they really popped! They applied smoothly, no trouble with patches or skipping.

Look at all that pretty shimmer!


I am really happy with these and glad I grabbed them up (especially half off!). I haven't had a lot of time to use them since my every day routine consists of just foundation and a little eyeliner, but I'm including eye swatches below if I've been able to get them.

I have my eye on Siren and am debating ordering it. They also have some fabulous lipsticks that I've been eyeing. I just can't decide! I'm trying to let my wallet calm down from all the surprise moving expenses, but I don't want to miss out!

What shades do you recommend?
