Samantha's Secret | Lime Crime Magic Dust

Another great cheap purchase from the Space NK sale: I picked up this beauty for £2 - but unlike the Laura Mercier shadow that I found very lacking, this 'magic dust' from Lime Crime is a great little number.

As you can see it is a loose shimmer shadow, in a very unusual colour: Dragon Scales. I can see why it didn't exactly fly off the shelves - but then I think its a gorgeous shade! Full price these shadows cost £12 which I think is a reasonable price for the quality and in comparison to other high end loose shadows.
This may be a difficult colour to wear but I have green eyes so copper/orange tones suit me, and I think this would look great over a black base.

 It's so difficult to capture a beautiful colour in a photo, but the shade has many dimensions. When first applied it appears as a brown shimmer with a green tinge but when blended has more of a reddish tone. Definitley alike to dragon scales! The powder is soft and blendable and for £2 I am so impressed. I've never heard of Lime Crime before has anyone else tryed any of their products?

P.s Do you think that all the bloggers have maybe been sponsored by Boss Pour Nuit Femme this week??
