Lime Crime Les Desserts d'Antoinette Collection Review & Swatches

Hi everyone!

I recently received the seven new nail polishes from Lime Crime. First time hearing about this brand? 

Lime Crime's mission is to break up the stale beauty ideals with fashion-forward shades and unmatched color payoff, so you may create looks as vivid and unique as you are. We are committed to providing the kind of fantasy makeup experience you deserve and couldn't get from any other brand. -Lime Crime website

In addition to these new nail polishes, they also carry a wide variety of lipsticks, eye shadows, and eyeliners. Let's get to the review!


7 pastel shades, inspired by confectionary delights from Marie Antoinette's table. Recklessly pigmented crème formula is rich, smooth and opaque in just two coats. Each bottle comes equipped with a flat, wide brush for superb control and flawless application.



First up, Milky Ways. It's a beautiful creme, with the slightest hint of yellow. If you're afraid to wear a bold white nail polish alone, I highly recommend this color. This applied beautifully and required two coats for opacity.


Crema de Limon is a soft, pastel yellow that surprisingly was the least bit streaky. Yellows have the reputation of being streaky and a pain to work with, but believe me when I say, that this is one of the first yellows that didn't give me any application issues! Awesome job, Lime Crime. This was two easy coats.


Parfait Day is a soft, pastel pink. Typically, these are the shades pinks I go for and this has tied up with my all time favorite pink, Pink Friday from OPI. This reminded me of a thick strawberry shake, yum! ;) This was two coats.


Lavendairy is a soft, pastel lavender. This was such a difficult color to capture, but was the closest I could get. This was two coats.


Peaches <3 Creme - The closest thing I could think of when trying to describe this color is a cantaloupe and my mouth immediately began to water! LOL! This was two coats and applied beautifully.


Pastelchio is a soft, yet vibrant lime creme. I'm not sure I would classify this as a pastel, nonetheless, it's a must have for me from this collection. This was two coats.


Once In a Blue Mousse is a soft, pastel Tiffany blue. This was two coats.


- Rich/highly pigmented
- Easy application
-Great formula
- Glossy
- Easy to use brush
- Unicorns!
- Cute, matte packaging
- 3 Free
- Vegan
- Cruelty free
- If you're into pastels, you may just love these!


The handle is a bit stubby which can cause difficulty during application since there is less surface area to hang onto.

Pastelchio was the thickest in terms of formula, but was still fairly easy to apply.


These retail for $5.99 ea and are 9 ml - 0.3 oz

You can purchase these nail polishes along with others from http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/categories/nails/

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

  2. I have quite a few Lime Crime Magic Dusts (loose eyeshadow pigments), and they are simply splendid. Rich, smooth, BRIGHT. I know there's a bit of (old) drama regarding Lime Crime and their supposed repackaging scandal a few years back, but I still respect the company for moving away from that. They've really come into their own, and even though the prices for their makeup are on the "couture expensive" shelf for me nowadays, they still remember their fans, and I appreciate what they do. They put out incredibly beautiful pigments, and I have yet to hear bad things about the new stuff they've been coming out with. To be honest, I'm actually really aching to buy all these polishes SOLELY for the reason that they apply beautifully(according to yours and many other blogs). I rarely ever wear pastels because they can be such a pain to apply. Sorry for the novel, and thank you for doing this review!

  3. I've been looking for a colour like Milky Mays! Love the off white because I'm not keen on wearing stark white on my nails.
