I can't lie and say that I didn't keep checking the Lime Crime website for the arrival of their new Superfoil Eyeshadows, or that I didn't have Instagram post notifications turned or that I wasn't subscribed to their emails, cos I totally was. Even if that does make me pretty lame, I'm not even sorry (sassy emoji). These eyeshadows are literally the cutest of cute!

Not only is the pretty pink daisy packaging the sweetest thing I've ever seen, but once I saw swatches online, I was sold. The Superfoil eyeshadows are a new wet/dry formula that transform to liquid foil once applied with water. To start with they've released six different duos, with each containing two vibrantly coloured shades. I bought the shadows that I thought looked the most wearable out of the lot, which are still a little daring for me, but obviously that's one of Lime Crime USP's.

The duo's I bought are Tutu/En Pointe, described as a periwinkle purple and a pink toned rose goldElectric/Barberella, a silvery mauve with a golden pewter, and Malibu/Convertible, a surfer blue and a Cadillac pink. When I first swatched them, I was totally shocked at how pigmented these are it's unreal, and the metallic sheen is insane! The two pink shades En Pointe and Convertible are a little crumbly however, due to how intensely pigmented they are, so do go careful with them if you make a purchase. Whether you're a lover of Lime Crime or not (we all know their company has been involved in a few scandals in the past), you can't deny you don't love it when a brand not only nails the packaging but also delivers with a superior quality product.

I feel like I need to point out the the swatches are all completely dry swatches with no primer or water. Obviously they are marketed as being 'water-activated' so if you thought they couldn't get any better, apply with water and they are even more insane! Priced at £13.80, they are just £6.90 per eyeshadow, which I think is a steal for what you get, especially if you're into your statement shades.

Have you tried the Superfoils yet?
