Lime Crime Week Day #2: Aquataenia Palette Review & Swatches

Hello Ladies and Gents and welcome to day 2 of Lime Crime week! Today I have a palette review for you, perfect for all you lovers of bright colours! If you've seen my previous reviews of the Chinadoll & Antoinette palette, you'll know i'm a huge fan of Lime Crime palettes and this is no exception.



The palette has an aquatic mermaid theme in mind, with 5 glorious summer colours all upto the same standard you'd expect from Lime Crime, with crazy pigmentation and effortless formulation. I won't dwell too much on the packaging, but it does have the very typical Lime Crime purple tin, with the shades inside in a plastic insert. While the plastic insert has annoyed people, I don't mind at the price point you get the palette for and it has never caused me any problems. The back of the palette includes the shade names and all palettes come in a whimsical gold cardboard envelope, almost like you are opening a secret letter! I am SUCH a fan of the tins, they are so unique in my collection and I love the purple with golden embossed unicorn.




Lets get onto swatches, be prepared, they are beautiful!




Usually I'd go into detail with each and every eyeshadow, but this time, the palette is such an all rounder. No eyeshadow lets the palette down, each one has impeccable pigmentation and formulation, easily blended and just beautiful. There really is no need to break down the shades, as each and every single one has no flaws and that is SO rare for a palette. Usually you'll find one dud, but here, the quality is exceptional. I love how the palette really embodies mermaids and aquatic tones, with a very unique pearly sheen to it, almost replicating the sheen of a mermaids tail. They glide onto the lid with buttery silkiness and stay put for hours. I didn't notice any shimmer fall-out and honestly... I have no complaints whatsoever.

If this palette is intriguing your inner mermaid, you can purchase it here for $34.99. This works out roughly £22-£25, which is not bad for high quality eyeshadows with INSANE pigmentation! Lime Crime ships internationally and their products arrive within 1-2 weeks in my experiences for a flat rate of $10.99 (which is why its better to make a big order! Haha)! Alternatively if you are a UK lady who wants to order this from a UK, you can via Cocktail Cosmetics here.

Does this palette float your mermaid boat?

    1. I would definitely suggest this one or Chinadoll, but all of them are lovely so its completely up to you :) I am reviewing the Alchemy palette later on in the week so then you can make a decision on what palette you think is right for you :) I think my favourite is Chinadoll or this one or Antoinette, ahhh I can't even choose! As for the uni-liners, that review is coming tomorrow I think! Just gotta swatch 3 more :)

    1. You're right, these are quite wallet friendly. Much more so than MAC or any other brand like that and better quality too! The packaging is the best though right? :D
