New Reformulated LimeLight Perfect Eyeshadow Review / by stacie thomas

Hello Everyone, 

Today I want to share my experience with the newly reformulated Perfect Eyeshadows by LimeLight by Alcone.  Honestly, the original formula from the Il Makiage ruined me for ever wanting to try other eyeshadows, it was that good. Last fall I discovered Il Makiage was to be no more so I was anxious to see how LimeLight could pull of a better formula because lets be real, often times "New & Improved" means cheap short cuts to increase profit. Besides an artist can't go from Viseart & Tom Ford to just anything. As a Makeup Artist & Beauty Guide the best quality products for my clients comes first. The new eyeshadows have occupied my kit for over a month now, I've used them on many different clients, so I lets dive in!

Here are the shades including descriptions.

Color Selection

As you can see most of the shades are neutrals, mostly mattes. Neutrals are the basis of every eye look- from a seamless transition of a smokey eye, a good crease, filling in brows, or the base before adding strategic shimmer. The colors correspond with the past eyeshadows by number. Wanting to see some more color? Lottie's limited edition collection launching October 14th will have a 2 six color palettes to try out. Check out this behind the scenes of the Fall/Winter catalog.

Texture

We call it Perfect since it took months of prototypes before finally arriving at this. One touch & you'll find it's so soft it feels almost like a cream. These shades are so pigmented, one tap is enough for the entire eye yet they blend so effortlessly with minimal fall out. The last formula had a couple shades that weren't as pigmented as the rest plus they were a slightly brittle in texture which was fragile to travel with. The new formula's creaminess has durability & blendability added to the pigmentation of the original. 

Swatches

 Top-down 38, 34, 2, 26,40, 32, 41, 36, 37, 19 ,33
