Lime Crime Week Day #6: Alchemy Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Welcome back to Lime Crime week everyone! I just have to say a huge thank you to everyone for commenting and making this week so fun for me! I really enjoyed putting together a weeks worth of posts, even though it was a lot of work (how do ya'll full time bloggers do it?) I've loved hearing your feedback and comments, so thank you! 
Today I'm reviewing for you, the Alchemy palette which I believe was released last Halloween.  It contains 5 amazingly pigmented shades which have a moody sort of theme to them, perfect for the upcoming Autumn season. 



Again, I have gone into the packaging many many times before, but I adore the purple tin, it is so unique and stands out in my collection. The proud golden unicorn embosses the front and all eyeshadows are contained in a plastic insert. People have complained about the plastic insert which can be taken out and can be regarded as a little flimsy. But to me, it doesn't bother me too much especially since if Lime Crime were to use something else, it would probably raise the cost of the palette. Being the cheapskate I am, I just deal. It is honestly not bothersome in the slightest, except if perhaps you are against plastic insert thingys. 



Now onto the colours yes? Because that's what we're all here for right?





Again, like my previous review, I won't go into each and every shade as this palette is another all rounder, it doesn't require an individual breakdown of each shade. The palette delivers outstanding pigmentation as you see, being probably the second most pigmented palette Lime Crime delivers, first being Chinadoll. I like that this palette is a little more laid back, with shades that are incredibly wearable rather than the in your face crazy shades that they are known for. The colours to me, scream Autumn, with a beautiful burnt copper and deep mossy greens. I love the inclusion of the creamy white known as Spellbound, its beautiful and very handy as Lime Crime don't have too many highlight/inner corner shades. The Alchemy palette is outstanding, with exceptional quality that Lime Crime is known for. Pigmentation is mind blowing and all shades are buttery soft and melt onto the lid, as well as blending like an absolute dream. I can't recommend it enough to be honest and think if you are looking for something for Autumn, this should definitely be on your list!
If this palette is intriguing you, 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

Which Lime Crime palette is your favourite? Mine is the Chinadoll :)

  6. LOOK AT THAT PIGMENTATION O.O Oh man, that alone makes me really want to get a palette from them. I love the purple, and the other colors as well, but I'm not sure I'd get much use from these particular ones! Still, can't deny the quality right there. You're breaking down my walls on this brand, Marvelle!

  10. Hmm on the plus side with the plastic insert, if you're the type to depot into a Zpalette, for instance, it's probably pretty easy to cut it up?
