Lime Crime Diamond Dew Review & Swatches – Holy Shift, Confetti and Tinsel

Lime-Crime-Diamond-Dew-Box

The Diamond Dews are eyeshadow toppers. They cost £18 from UK suppliers or $20 from Lime Crime direct. They have 4.14 ml of product each and have a 12-month shelf life once opened. They are Vegan and cruelty-free.

A lid topper that brings the effect of sparkling diamonds to your eyes. Packed with reflective particles that instantly add that OMG! factor to your makeup.

All three shades here are Limited Edition shades from the Holiday and Birthday collections.

Diamond Dews are the eye-safe sisters to Lime Crime’s Diamond Crushers. They’re sparkly toppers that come in two main textures. One is a fine glitter version that’s more opaque and a slightly chunkier version that is sheerer. Both dry down on the eye and I’ve not had any issue with them moving even on my oily lids.
I find these are best applied as soon as your makeup is done and do let them dry before you move on. If you don’t you’ll end up with creasing, so thin layers is better.

Both the boxes and bottles are clear with an iridescent finish. The bottles are a super cute drop shape. The applicator is also a drop shape with a well in the middle to catch product.

Described as ‘Liquid diamonds glitter with a purple shift’ Holy shift is a royal purple glitter. It’s one of the finer glitter textures. It layers well but isn’t quite opaque, it’s best placed over a purple shadow for the full effect.

Confetti

Confetti is described as a Rainbow Iridescent and I’d say that’s very true. This one has a clear base so works well over any colour shadow to create the glittery lid of your dreams.

Tinsel

Is described as ‘Holiday Green’ and it’s definately a pine kind of green. Again this one is the finer glitter texture and while fairly opaque looks better with a green shadow placed underneath.

All the Diamond Dews have the same ingredients listed, although it will actually vary slightly from shade to shade depending on the pigment used to create the final colour.

Personally I love these. they do stay all day for me even with my oily lids and the finer glitter versions are good for everyday sparkle. If you’d like to get your hands on yours you can get yours from Lime Crime direct for $20.
