Lime Crime makeup review - part ii

Today's Valentine look was created using Lime Crime Makeup eyeshadows and lipstick.  Urban Decay lid primer portion was used as a base on the lids up to the brow. MAC Cosmetics Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation / Loose was used all over the face with Beyond Bronze under the cheekbones.

Top Hattie was used under the browbone.  Cupcake Thief was used in the inner corner of the brow to the nose and the center of the lid under the crease.  Citrus Girl was used in the inner corners of the eye from the nose to the lid under Cupcake Thief.  Abracadabra was used on the outer corners of the lid.  Siren was used in the crease.  Mischief Managed was used on the top lid as liner.  Dragon Scales was used as liner under the lower lid to create depth and add a high definition flare.  Lime Criminal was lined under Dragon Scales and extended outward with a space between that and the other colors.  The look was finished with Centrafuchsia.

These colors were selected as Valentine roses are typically red, white, and/or pink, and roses tend to have rich green stems, bright sepals, and golden, yellow pollen.  Without using lid primer, the pale pink, yellow, and lime colors washed out on the tanned skin tone leaving behind only a shimmer. With primer, the colors lightly stained the lid.  The red, fuchsia, and grass green colors were vibrant but applied lightly in layers. The lipstick was creamy but drying; although, it did last long.

In the future, it would be nice to see Lime Crime with lip and eye shades of royal blue, electric purple, and true orange.  Cosmopop and Great Pink Planet can be layered to create a coral color, which is a typical Florida color.  The line is a bit pricey, so check their FaceBook page and website often for special offers.
