I introduced this beauty page 6 months ago so that I could share my 'holy grail' makeup products. In that time, I now realise that this is my 4th post about a highlighter... not sorry.
For those of you who aren't familiar with these guys, let me fill you in...
... The Californian based brand makes revolutionary makeup products that help you express your individuality... and EVERYTHING is certified vegan and cruelty-free. As my pals over at Spectrum brushes always say 'no unicorns were harmed in the making'... or, in this case, mermaids.
As with ALL Lime Crime products, the package alone is mesmerising. I'm always catching a glimpse of this holographic little palette's rainbow glow, every time it catches the light
The palette contains 3 ethereal highlighters - Seashell, Sparkling Pearl and Mermaid.
The colours can be worn separately or, in my case, all at once. Just sweep your brush through the whole line-up and apply to your usual highlighting areas - cheeks, brow bone, nose and cupid's bow. The result is a beautiful, multi-faceted highlight, making a refreshingly cute change from the ordinary pearls and golds we already have several variations of in our makeup bags... am I right?
Wear alone over foundation... the pigment packs a punch so you don't need a lot but you can be as intense you want for the full mermaid effect. The HI-LITE is long lasting and looks great in photos. It's just a shame I'm shit at selfies or I would show you... maybe one day...
If mermaids aren't your thing then how 'bout angels instead?
Before you go, there's one thing I need to know... Who do you think would win in a fight? An angel or a mermaid?
