I very rarely blog about beauty products… but I’ve been on a minor beauty bender lately, and thought I’d blog about it…
One of my friends mentioned fairly recently that she’s pretty much obsessed with Lime Crime cosmetics (which don’t have much of a retail space here in Calgary) but I hesitated to consider ordering anything sight-unseen… until I found a few different Lime Crime products at Winners.
I’ve tried a few of the Hi-Lites palettes… but ultimately they just aren’t pigmented enough for my liking. I suspect they might be better on darker/tanned skin. I found:
- the Mermaids palette (sparkling lavender/ivory/seafoam),
- the Opals palette (pink/gold/peach),
- the Unicorns palette (electric pink/green/mauve-gold),
- and the Blossoms palette (warm gold/lavender/sunset). Only the last one did I decide to buy, hoping that when I start using self-tanner in the summer they’ll look nice.
I haven’t seen the Angels palette (white iridescent/pink/blue) – but I’m going to keep an eye out for it, just to see…

Wowzers… the @winners in downtown #yyc has a lot of @limecrimemakeup hi-lites palettes in right now. #mermaid #opals and #blossom… I already have the Blossom palette, and didn't love the other two so left them behind. I kinda feel like I need to check out some of the other Winners stores to see what they might have too… (but I've learned my lesson… check EVEEYTHING, even if it's in a safety case!) . 💄💋💄 . #hiLitePalette #LimeCrime #limecrimehilite #makeupcommunity #makeup #cosmetics #mua #wannaBeMUA #makeup #amateurmua #shoppingScore #winnersfabfind
The only problem I’ve found at Winners – is a LOT of the Hi-Lites palettes had been opened and swatched, or some of the powders were broken. This was so super disappointing – since this really means they’re unhygienic… a scary thing when the product is going near my eyes…. I bought the Blossom palette that was sealed in a security box, and it appeared to be untainted – but admittedly it set me off feeling kind of oogie.

In searching for #limeCrime hi-lite palettes… I ran across some serious #WinnersShoppingFail experiences. Today I posted a #blog post about the palettes… and on May 15 I'll blog about some of the #shoppingScore and #shoppingFail trials seeking out a #winnersfabfind. What do YOU think about #winners stocking broken and contaminated Cosmetics like this? Shameful or just par for the course when bargain-seeking? . . 💋💄💋 #limecrimemakeup @limecrimeunicorns @limecrimemakeup @winners #hiLitePalette #beautybloggers #makeupcommunity #yycBlogger #CalgaryBlogger #CanadianBlogger #makeup #amateurmua #MUA #makeupaddiction #undiscovered_muas #wannaBeMUA #beautyblogger #fashion #powerofmakeup #makeupaddict #limecrimehilite #video #videoClip
