Lime Crime HI-LITE Opals Palette : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS

Lime Crime HI-LITE Opals Palette compact lid.
Lime Crime HI-LITE Opals Palette compact bottom.
Lime Crime HI-LITE Opals Palette in Pink, Gold, & Peach.
Ingredients: 
Mica (CI 77019), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Zinc Stearate, Silica, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol. May Contain/Peut Contenir [+/-]: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491,CI 77492,CI 77499), FD&C Yellow 5 (CI 19140).
Product: 
The Formula is a fine mile mica aura pigment with a fine white base to make these shade more intense on bare skin and over other products. The texture is buttery smooth and has a nice grip on bare skin. You only need a light hand to apply as these are very pigmented but still easy to buff out.

Colour:
Pink is a white based pink with an Aura finish.
Gold is a sheer based, yellow gold with an Aura finish.
Peach is a white based peach with an Aura finish.

Wear: I get 6-8 hours on their own. ;)

Packaging: Simple cardboard box compact with a magnetic for closure. The palette is heavy due to the board stock they used and the unnecessary thickness of the palette for the pans inside, but not as heavy as the Make Up For Ever Vol. palettes.

The palette cover is a holographic finish that shifts from blue to purple to hot pink depending on the light but it stays mostly a blue to pink colour

Daylight swatches: Pink, Gold, & Peach, applied heavy and buffed out.
Flash swatches: Pink, Gold, & Peach, applied heavy and buffed out.
Compare:
Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette {pink} Opal VS Lime Crime HI-LITE Palette in Opals.
Daylight & Flash swatches: Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette {pink} Opal, Lime Crime HI-LITE Palette in Opals in Pink and Peach.
Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette {pink} Opal is more intense less white based than Lime Crime HI-LITE Palette in Opals in pink. And more pink but similar intensity to the Peach.

This is the first palette I found had a similar texture profile to the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette. Most of these palettes/products were very shimmery or very subtle with not as refined particles of shimmer.

The Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette retail for $32US and $43CAN for 4 x 0.05 oz/ 1.53 g of product. So compared to the Lime Crime HI-LITE Opals Palette retail for $38US for 3 x 0.25oz / 7g of product, you're getting a lot more product for the price point if you just want warm tone aura pigments.
Verdict:
This palette is awesome! It would seem like a lot of money for $38 but you also get a lot of product as well. The texture is more wearable and forgiving on the skin due to the fine milling of the shimmer particles for the cheek area.
