Lime Crime Fantasy Palettes in Aquataenia and ChinaDoll: Swatches & Review

Lime Crime Fantasy Palettes in ChinaDoll and Aquataenia
Lime Crime pressed eyeshadow palette retails for $35.00US. It the end of era for Lime Crime as the D's all the current eyeshadows again for something new. The VENUS: The Grunge Palette which is coming out probably at the end of this month.

When I saw it with it's new packaging I had a horrible feeling this was the end for the pressed eyeshadow palettes. But the website had not change their listing until today. I was crossing my fingers. >_<

It's also not the first time they got rid of there eyeshadow line but at the very least they did a clearance sale on their remaining stock.

I'm just hoping some of the shade out of these 4 palettes will make it back into the new palette line they have started.

You can see my review on the D'Antoinette and Alchemy palette in the links below.
