Urban Decay|Alice in Wonderland Through The Looking Glass Palette

I was so excited when I first heard that Urban Decay would be collaborating with Disney, especially that it would be an Alice in Wonderland collaboration. 
I initially wasn't going to get this palette, but when I recently visited Debenhams after watching several YouTube videos on it, I had to get it. And I am so, so glad that I made that decision! 
I feel like the set up of this palette is somewhat like the older Vice palettes, when they used to have pop-ups and 3D bits in them. I was never fortunate enough to get one, so this for me is something completely new and different. 
The packaging itself is seriously meticulously designed and feels very special on it's own.

Lime Crime Perlees|Penny and Roswell Review

You can probably tell from my last post that I am a big, big fan of Lime Crime right now. The colours and textures of the products they are creating, are truly amazing. 
When I saw the Lime Crime Perlees released, way back in December, I knew that I'd have to take a closer look. 
'Penny' was the first shade that really caught my eye, I absolutely love the MAC lipstick 'CB 96' and this one seemed like a more pigmented version. 'Roswell' combines two of my favourite things, aliens and lipstick, the colour looked weird and wonderful so it was a definite buy for me. 
As always, I'll start with the packaging. Lime Crime's always had pretty unique and interesting packaging, but this really takes the cake. The packaging on these lipsticks is absolutely beautiful, I myself am not a floral-print fan, but 'IRL' this packaging is amazing.

Lime Crime Spring Velvetines 2016 Collection

When I saw the promo pictures for this year's Spring Lime Crime Velvetine collection, I knew it'd be something I had to get in on. 
The cute spring alien aesthetic, combined with luminous bright colours, is extremely interesting. 
I ended up buying three out of the four 'limited' colours released, skipping out on 'Zenon', a bright metallic gold. 
The packaging on these is exactly the same as the regular Velvetine packaging, frosted tube with a red metallic, painted lid, and doe-foot applicator. In each tube you get 2.6ml/0.088floz. If you buy from the Lime Crime website (like I like to) the lipsticks are £13.93/$20.00 each, which is pretty steep for the amount of product you are getting. Especially when compared to something like Jeffree Star's lipsticks which are £12.54/$18.00 from Jeffree's website, for 5.6ml/0.19floz. More than double the product you get with Lime Crime, for less cash. 
I think if you properly work it out, these are quite steep, but if you're looking for really unique and wonderful colours, these are definitely worth a look. Also, can we all appreciate the maths up there?
