If you weren't aware I am a bit of a Lime Crime addict and every time they bring out something new I have to have it (ridiculous I know!) There has been two products though that I was skeptical about and that was the Eyeshadow Brightener ($20) and the Eyeshadow Helper Waterproof Primer ($20.) I've never really used eyeshadow primer so to me it seemed unnecessary and an extra step in the morning that I didn't have time for.
Just before Christmas and after quite the internet shopping spree I got the sudden urge to put these two unnecessary items into my shopping basket and pressed 'complete order.' What I didn't realise is that they would be become so pivotal in my makeup routine.
I first used the Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer, thought nothing of it and continued with my normal makeup routine. It's a thick textured product which I thought was unusual but that does blend into the skin very quickly but other than that I forgot about it. After about a month of using it (late January) I realised I hadn't had eyeliner print at all in that time *insert shocked face here.* I have oily skin and most annoyingly after wearing my makeup all day I find eyeliner print happens far too often so not having to deal with it was well, amazing. Still being a skeptical beauty blogger I stopped using the primer to see what would happen and guess what... eyeliner print!!!
Following the success of the Eyeshadow Primer I decided to try out the Eyeshadow Brightener but this time round was immediately won over. It turns out most of the bold, bright colours I love can be even more intense with this bad boy underneath and my go-to pin up look becomes more sensual and intense. Once again Lime Crime you stole my heart so I can't wait to see what else you come out with!
Have you tried these out? What do you think of them?
