A few weeks ago fate and luck collided to bring me an amazing makeup surprise. Pay day had arrived and I was planning on purchasing the Magic Dust Rainbow from Lime Crime. I had used their eyeshadows before, one more gorgeous than the next, and so my plan was to purchase this package which includes all 16 of their colours at a slightly discounted rate. Fortunately, the discount was to be greater than I had ever anticipated!
Normally Lime Crime sell this package for $190.00, $34.00 cheaper than if you were to purchase each shadow individually at $14.00 each. However, on one particular evening Lime Crime reached 55,000 fans on Facebook and so they launched a 24-hour 55% off SALE! Excited and amazed, I invested not only in my Magic Dust Rainbow but also in three of their gorgeous lipsticks (at this price, it would have been obscene not to). Isn’t the packaging beautiful? Not only are the purple and yellow glittery boxes so pretty, but the products themselves come cased in a similarly bright and unicorn-clad attire. My makeup box has never looked prettier!
What I love about Lime Crime Magic Dusts is that they are so bright. Their light, powdery consistency goes on so smoothly and easily but still stays fresh and bright throughout the evening. Here’s a very blue look I created using three of their colours: Twilight on my lid, Empress as my under eye liner and Shoe Addict along my socket. I also used some black MAC eyeshadow in Carbon to intensify the corners of this look and give it a little bit more shape.
As always, no makeup look is complete without a Peaches and Cream false lash. Keeping it classic, I used a No.9 strip eyelash to add some drama to this look. You can purchase these lashes from the Peaches and Cream online shop.
