We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Coco – do you order your Lime Crime online? I have checked out the site several times and am really super curious about their products…..but I would love to try them in person 🙂 Do they sell at actual stores or just online? How long have you been using Lime Crime? Do you use the pigments loose or with a liquid thingy??

Supposedly Lime Crime repackages their stuff and it’s all from TKB.

Personally, I don’t know, because I don’t buy her products, but there is a lot of evidence on that. Also, who wants to pay 12 dollars for something when you can get it somewhere cheaper?

I have about 7 or 8 colors of pigment from Lime Crime, and I LOVE THEM!!!!!!! They are so pretty.. And Ive actually never used them wet, just over my MAC paint pots.. GORGEOUS!!

Lime Crime no way they just repackage the minerals i mean u can buy it yourself directly from the company
The best inexpensive shimmer eyeshadows/pigments are from Ben Nye

I gotta agree with your picks. I’m planning a massive MUFE matte splurge very soon, and most of my collection IS UD or MAC.

Although I WILL admit I’ve heard great things about Illamasqua, and am dying to try their stuff. I just don’t know if my semi-local freestanding sephora actually carries it, since i know the in store counter ones near me don’t.

L’Oreal HIP Duos and Shocking Shadow Pigments! Just bought the Pigments in Visionaire – a GORGEOUS warm gold – and the Duos in Gunmetal – sheer silver-sparkled black and GORGEOUS!!!!!! bright metallic silver with a touch of ice blue to it. They’re incredibly pigmented, and dare I say it, MAC-esque!

I love Urban Decay, but for any Canadians out there, try Annabelle shadows. They are so great and can be found in drugstores. I highly suggest their custom quad shadows and studio pigments.

MAC if you like shimmer, Bobbi Brown if you like mattes.

I dont have any experience with MUFE and UD (yet), so I cant comment on them. Hopefully UD will finally be available at Dutch Sephoras this upcoming year!
