Lime Crime palette d'antoinette pressed eyeshadow: Swatches & Review

Lime Crime Loose Eyeshadoe in Siren & Palette D'Antoinette
Lime Crime Palette D'Antoinette pressed eyeshadow retails for $34.99 US for 5 x 1.6 g of eyeshadows. I order this when they where having their clearance sale on the loose eyeshadows for $6 each for a 2.5 gram jar and got the Siren (true red) shimmer shade.

Product: The Palette D'antoinette come with 5 pigmented, non powdery shades. The 4 mattes are buttery and the tone are a hybrid of pale pastel and almost neon in tone. They have a lot of pop even on bare skin. The shimmer silver is a nice bright tone.

Colour: 
Royal Flush a pastel/neon warn tone pink (matte)
Absinthe-Minded is a light/neon green that lean more yellow (matte)
Macarooned – peach/neon orange (matte)
Ribbonesque – lavender (matte)
Mercurious – metallic silver (shimmer)

All are true to pan.


Wear: These where 6 hours without a base. Not bad.

Packaging: Tin pencil box sized case with hinge. The eyeshadows are housed in a thin black plastic (ridged added for structural support.) that can bee popped out easily. The box it' come in has a envelope (round sided) closer as well as designed to look like mail.

Compare: For the palettes I don't have any good dupes for the four pastel shades but the silver is quite dupeable.

The Lime Crime Siren Loose Eyeshadow is a close dupe to Sugarpill Cosmetics Asylum Loose Eyeshadow. Asylum it a touch darker with more to visible larger shimmer.
