Lime Crime - China Doll Palette Review

Hey there, hope you all had a lovely weekend, I had some really nice family time and we took advantage of sunny Saturday by having a BBQ.    In between the family shenanigans, I got to play with this stunning Lime Crime China Doll Palette courtesy of Cocktail Cosmetics.

Lime Crime China Doll Palette

The Lime Crime China Doll Palette, isn't one I would have chosen for myself because it is so bright and I normally go for neutrals - it just goes to show how wrong one can be.  This palette is bright, bold and beautiful.  Each of the 5 individual shades are so pigmented that you only need the slightest dab of a brush and the powder glides onto the lid effortlessly.  

I had a lot of fun playing around with the colours on the China Doll palette as you can see from the picture below.  My inspiration for this look was the Colours of the Caribbean - as little bit of sunshine in Scotland goes to your head.   A short time after this photo I was sipping a Cosmo on my deckchair, strategically moving it into the sun every time a cloud threatened to disturb my bliss.  

Lime Crime are a fantastic brand, I find them not dissimilar to Urban Decay - with the use of their flamboyant colours, the quality of their eyeshadows is brilliant. 

Have you tried the China Doll Palette before - what are your thoughts?  Cocktail Cosmetics have a huge array of brands at reasonable prices.  So if you fancy something unquie and distinctive go and have a look yourself.  I'm addicted.

  17. "Parasol" looks especially amazing! What a cool, unique palette! And I really like where you placed the colors on your lids. I've been wanting to try Limecrime's lipsticks but I'll definitely keep their eyeshadows in mind as well.
