Lime Crime Aquataenia Palette

I really like Lime Crime, especially their bright colored lipsticks, so I decided to try one of their palettes. The one I got is called Aquataenia and features 5 bright colored eyeshadows all in shimmery pearlescent shades. The palette comes in purple tin packaging with the Lime Crime logo on the front. I quite like the design and it is easy to carry around, very light and sturdy.

Lime Crime is an American brand so not many places over here sell it. Fortunately there are some UK sites that sell this brand. I got mine from Cute Cosmetics for £23.95. They also stock other Lime Crime palettes and lipsticks.

Professional-quality eyeshadow arranged by themes. Each palette features 5 coordinated shades that work flawlessly together as well as on their own. Cashmere formula is loaded to the brim with pigment & offers luxurious payoff and superb blendability. Palettes arrive encased in a deluxe purple tin.

Aquataenia is different from all previous LC palettes because it's completely *pearlescent*. Each oceanic shade is loaded with shimmer & glitter particles to create a wet, glistening effect -- reminiscent of a mermaid's tail under the moonlight -- and makes your eyelids sparkle like the sea! Can be used on eyes or cheeks. Arrives encased in a deluxe purple tin.

The colors as you can see are very bright and shimmery. All are named with sea themed names such as Nautilus Prime (Dark Blue), Coral Of The Story (Coral), Seahorse Discourse (Lime Green), Pearl-Ple (Purple) and Atlanteal (Aqua Blue).

For the bright eyeshadow lover like me, this palette is great for creating all different looks. I found all of the colors were very pigmented and blended together easily. There was no creasing and by the night time the colors looked like I had just put them on.

All of the colors were great to work with, although my favourites were Coral Of The Story, Pearl-Ple and Nautilus Prime. These palettes are amazing to work with as you can do so much with them.



  1. Wow this palette has nice colours! I really like the different styles you've done here. I'm really liking the blue brows too :-)

  2. Thanks, to create the brows I used Urban Decay's 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in Deep End. The pencils are really easy to use, nice texture and you don't have to press down too hard to get the color to show x

  3. Oh wow what interesting colours - I love something a little different and paired with the lipstick they are really great. Thanks so much for sharing

  4. All the colors go well with each other too. Lime Crime do other palettes with lovely colors too, I think this is the only completely shimmery one though x

  5. oh wow, so vibrant! You did a great job x
