LimeLife by Alcone Review

I first heard about LimeLife by Alcone at The Makeup Show. James Vincent (a makeup artist I really respect ) spoke about them and one of the founders, Madison Mallardi, spoke in a keynote later that day. I really liked their vibe and wondered why I’d never heard of it before.

img_7696The way LimeLife by Alcone came about is kinda cool. Alcone Company opened in 1950 as a pharmacy that also sold makeup to Broadway perfomers. It’s been an institution for NYC MUAs ever since. Makeup artists were constantly referring their clients to the Alcone store and they wanted to find a way to compensate them for it. So, what they did was take their top-selling products and have those pro brands manufacture them for Alcone. They are then branded as LimeLife. The formulas are the exact same. Here is the breakdown of what is what for my makeup artist friends or makeup-obsessed:

  • Botanical Foundation=
  • Waterproof Complete Concealer=
  • Perfect Eyeshadow=Original MAC formula pre-Estee Lauder acquisition, Il Makiage
  • 10 Years Younger Setting Spray=. Ingredients are identical to Urban Decay All Nighter as Skindinavia makes Urban Decay’s setting sprays for them.
  • Signature Vegan Brushes=
  • Come Clean Brush and Sponge Shampoo=London Brush Company

The following products are LimeLife’s own formulations: Enduring Lip Color, Signature Lipgloss, Perfect Lipstick, Perfect Mascara, Perfect Bronzer, Perfect Eyeliner, Enduring Lip Liner, Perfect Blush, Perfect Setting Powder

img_7693I got to know a little more about LimeLife by Alcone when I worked on this story for The Beauty Guide I interviewed, Danielle, was one of my favorites and I really enjoyed getting to know her and more about the company. She was not spammy, robotic, annoying or creepy.

Fast forward to a month or so ago, I saw that celebrity makeup artist Lottie was doing a collaboration with none other than LimeLife. Lottie is amazing, working on campaigns for Urban Decay, Make Up For Ever and Tarte, just to name a few. Her background is similar to mine (former graphic designer), and I love her style. Knowing that she was putting her name on LimeLife by Alcone products piqued my interest even more and assured me that it must be the real deal.limelight-lipsI have been trying out LimeLife products for awhile now, using them on clients and myself. As with any product I try, I remain picky, jaded, skeptical, obsessive and always seeking to determine one simple thing: do I recommend it?

It does meet some very important qualifications:

Not tested on animals✔️
Made in the USA✔️
Vegan offerings✔️
Moderately priced✔️
Eco-friendly, attractive packaging✔️

I think you’ll see that I’m not the norm as I’m not going to tell you that I am obsessssssed with everythiiiiing. I purchased all of these with my own cash money and I’ll never talk to you like anything other than a friend.
limelight-eyeshadowsWHAT I THOUGHT
Rating System: Love, Like, Meh or Nope

Botanical Foundation: LOVE
I already knew I loved this because it’s RCMA, my forever favorite. If you want to wear the same foundation that Kim K, Ariana Grande, J Lo and Beyonce wear, here ya go. It has 50% pigment but can be worn as a tinted moisturizer all the way up to a concealer. I apply with a damp beautyblender or LimeLife’s Blenderful sponge and it’s the most beautiful, realistic coverage that looks and photographs like real skin. There’s about 20 reasons why it’s the only foundation I carry in my
freelance kit and why my most-viewed YouTube video is about it.

Waterproof Complete Concealer: LIKE
This is the most opaque, full coverage concealer I’ve ever tried. It really is totally waterproof too; I tested it! It’s excellent for covering tattoos, melasma, hyperpigmenation and birth marks. 2 warnings though: it has an old lady scent at first (it fades away) and creases when used on the under eye area for me. Kevyn Aucoin made this formula popular when he famously used it as foundation. The coverage is supreme so you could even skip foundation all together.

Perfect Eyeshadow: LOVE
Hands down, the most pigmented eyeshadows I’ve ever tried, and that’s saying a lot. I love that you can create custom refillable palettes, use them wet or dry and as brow powders. If I could compare them to anything, I would compare them to LORAC Pro shadows, but believe it or not, they are more pigmented still. I am planning a separate post on these with swatches.

Perfect BlushLIKE
While I wish there were more than 2 matte colors, these are mega pigmented and the pan sizes are huge so it will last you forever. The shades with shimmer look radiant on the clients I’ve used them on. 1-Alive and 3-Possible are my favorites and 6-Glowing is a really nice subtle highlighter.

10 Years Younger Finish Spray: LOVE
Being that Urban Decay’s All Nighter is the only setting spray in my kit, a spray made by Skindinavia, and the ingredient list for this one is identical, I already loved this. It truly works and is worth the 5 seconds it takes to spritz it on for long-lasting makeup.

Enduring Lip Color: LIKE
I’m not a huge liquid lipstick fan but these smell really good, apply smoothly and wear well. They don’t feel nearly as dry as other liquid lipsticks. Creme Brûlée is a really pretty shade that would be flattering on almost anyone. I also love Macaroon for a deeper, mauve nude.

Enduring Lip Liner: MEH
I prefer lip liners that you sharpen, vs. this retractable style as these types can break more easil
y I find. However, 02 is the perfect beige nude liner if you do a truly nude lip and it applies smoothly and evenly. That being said, they aren’t my favorite formula or packaging format.

Perfect Mascara: LIKE 
Turns out, Alcone was the first to do a fiber mascara, before anyone else. Though I’m not necessarily crazy about fiber mascaras, this is the easiest one I’ve tried. It’s one step; the fibers are already infused into the formula. It’s buildable, being one of the few mascaras I own that actually looks better with a 2nd or 3rd coat. It doesn’t get clumpy or spidery. I haven’t had any issues with flaking, smudging or irritation. Though it’s not waterproof, it somehow lasted through an emotional day and sad movie with no running!

Signature Lipgloss: LIKE 
My mom helped me solve the mystery of what this smells like. She used to make strawberry mousse and this gloss smells like the packets of strawberry powder. The packaging is super smart with a mirror on the side. The formula is non-sticky. The color Grace is pretty but sheer. It’s nice but not the most amazing lip gloss I’ve ever tried or anything. UPDATE: the shimmery shades smelly like strawberry mousse and the opaque ones more like buttercream. I think the opaque ones smell wonderful.

Perfect Bronzer: MEH I won’t reach for this too much as it’s pretty shimmery. On mature skin, it can enhance texture and pores if not used carefully. It does create a nice glow but I would like it so much better minus the damn shimmer. Younger clients would enjoy it I’m sure.


I’ll review LimeLife by Alcone skincare in a future post and highlight certain products that I find impressive.

All products purchased with my own money. I do not sell LimeLife by Alcone so will not make any commission from purchases made through this blog post.

    Hey! I own the big concealer kit by them. I like it but it definitely doesn’t cover everything for me – unless I’m using it wrong? It does crease. My kit doesn’t come with green. It’s an older one with 16 colors. Think I should rebuy it or go with make up forever concealer? I’m 38 with dark under eye and I do TV a lot. You can see pics of me on my Instagram @bluegraygal. I’m always on the hunt for concealer and so far I haven’t found my dream one! Thanks for info. Very helpful!

      01/19/2017 at 9:31 PM

      Hi Kelly! Wow-not only is your Instagram feed beautiful, but so are YOU! So, you must have the Kroylan Dermacolor 16 color palette? For the under eye are, it can be tricky. I’ve found it works best when applied SUPER sparingly with a synthetic blending brush. I’ve actually been using this brush:

      On blemishes and other areas of the face, I like to dot it on with my fingers or a brush and then blend out by patting with my finger or a beautyblender.

      I’ve been most successful with this concealer when I use far less than I think I should.

      For under eye circles, my favorite plan of attack is a color corrector (yellow for red/purple or peach for blue/brown) followed by Urban Decay Naked Skin Complete Coverage Concealer:

        Ashlyn, I really hate to burst your bubble, but I tested Younique’s foundation called Touch on parchment paper along with Limelight’s & what I seen with my own eye’s was Touch is not even close to being waterproof like Limelight’s is. LL was like water running off a ducks back, a couple swipes & Y was off the paper.

      Hello Dear and thank you for the amazing reviews. I have JUST joined Limelight and I have ZERO makeup experience, however, I have been in sales and sales team management for two decades. I wanted to ask you, do you believe one can learn how to do professional makeup, without prior experience?? My own techniques on how to apply makeup to myself has improved as I had different artists apply makeup on me, but I’m still a “baby” when it comes to knowledge of different brush uses, and how to create different effects with contouring, concealer and such. Do you have any tips for me? Does anyone know of makeup lessons in the Dallas area? All input is GREATLY APPRECIATED

      1. Ivy Boyd

        03/23/2018 at 11:08 PM

        Hi Marian! Thanks SO much for reading and commenting! I am a working makeup artist, who is art school, self and Sephora taught! You don’t have to go to school for this to be talented at it! I would strongly suggest you read Kevyn Aucoin’s books and look up color theory. I love LimeLight products because I can easily integrate them into my pro kit. If you have a chance to attend The Makeup Show in Dallas, 100% DO IT! You get a discount with LimeLight too. The seminars are amazing!

    I am seriously considering become a rep. I love RCMA and use it in my kit. I think I am hesitant because I left the makeup selling world because I wanted to DO makeup, not SELL makeup. But when my brides ask what I used and how can they achieve the same look, I would love to able to offer them the retail option.

    I would love any advice or tips! Thank you for the great review!!!

    Thank you so much for the time you put into giving this review & your opinions. I am a presenter for Limelight By Alcone & I love getting the perspective of a MUA on the products I represent. I love the comparisons so much. Aside from some of the great pointed you highlighted, one thing that attracted me to LL was that (we) aren’t spammy robots like some other brands (or at least we aren’t supposed to be – there’s always those you can’t get through to). I want to take care of my customers & provide the products that will work the best for them. If it isn’t ours, so be it. I don’t want to just be another sell to someone else so I refuse to make my customers feel that way. I found you through a friend sharing this blog post but I will be following your blog now & cant wait to see more reviews on LL. Man I wish I could have you on my team!! LOL. Thanks for your candid honesty. 💕

    1. Ivy Boyd

      05/07/2017 at 5:09 PM

      Hi Jenn! Thanks a million for your kind words and for taking the time to read my review! I totally agree with you. We are really allowed to be spammy, and I love that. Not that it doesn’t happen but that integrity is there. I have a LimeLight post coming up that I’m super excited about so stay tuned! I hope our paths cross in the future!💕

    Thank you so much!!!

    1. Ivy Boyd

      06/11/2017 at 10:29 PM

      Hi Nell! Thanks for reading and great question! I use it on all my clients, regardless of age and I always love the results. It is wax-based, allowing it to not settle into fine lines and it truly looks and photographs like skin, not makeup. Let me know if you have any other questions because it’s the only foundation I’ve used in my kit the past 4 1/2 years!

  8. Marisa

    06/14/2017 at 2:53 AM

    I was so sad to read current Limelight website ingredients for foundation included BHT and paraben 🙁 Please tell me I am misreading something or they are planning to fix this. (I see the advertisements use the words paraben free “offerings”, etc… which implies the acknowledgement these are still used in some products, e.g. foundation- the one thing I think we all use)
    I do like the many before and after photos of people who use Limelight, but I can’t bare to put those two ingredients on my skin. Thank you for any insight!

    1. Ivy Boyd

      07/03/2017 at 2:26 AM

      Hi Marisa! The foundation is the only product that does contain parabens. It is made for LimeLight by a company called RCMA that has been making it for decades. LimeLight has denoted “working on it” next to parabens for this particular product and I hope they can push RCMA to remove them. All other products are paraben free. Thank you for sharing your concerns. It’s definitely and important topic.

    As a make up artist, this is exactly why I decided to join. I had been using RCMA for almost 6 years already and I had been looking for a way to get it into my clients hands without them having to splurge on the bigger pallets.

    You seriously just spoke to my little MUA heart so loudly. We share a why and that’s amazing to me ❤️

    1. Ivy Boyd

      07/03/2017 at 2:22 AM

      07/16/2017 at 5:27 PM

      Thanks so much for the nice comment, Isabel! The primer spray is just ok. I have really dry skin so for me, it’s more important that my skin is really well hydrated for the most longevity!

    07/23/2017 at 12:25 AM

    I have a friend that is selling this and she’s been on me to try it!
    I have been in search for someway to cover up my pregnancy mask/darks spots but nothing has worked this far!
    Hoping you can tell me if you think this makeup will do the job? And if so, how’s the best way to go about applying so it doesn’t look caked on?

    1. Ivy Boyd

      07/23/2017 at 10:26 AM

      Hi Amanda! Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. While the foundation has beautiful coverage, what I can almost guarantee will cover your melasma and dark spots completely and fully is the concealer:
      Depending on your skin tone, and either myself or your friend could help you figure that out, you might want #3 which has a peachy undertone that helps neutralize the brown tone. I wear #0 on my under eye and #2 elsewhere. FYI #1 is very yellow/green so better for redness. As for how to apply, you can use your finger or a synthetic brush but just remember to pat, not rub. Also, this product is the best example of less is more. The most minuscule amount goes a long way so start tiny!

  12. Kathryn

    09/22/2017 at 9:13 PM

    I saw you said there are paraben free offerings, but I noticed the foundation does have paraben. Is there another option?

    1. Ivy Boyd

      09/22/2017 at 10:45 PM

      Hi Kathryn! The only product that contains parabens is unfortunately the foundation, correct. I do hope that they come out with a paraben-free option and I believe they plan to. I’d love to see a BB cream type product for those who like lighter coverage too. Thanks for reading!

      1. Christina

        02/27/2018 at 12:52 AM

    10/09/2017 at 2:59 PM

    I would like to know how it covers pores as mine are larger. This company has really taken over the last year in my area and I’ve been back in forth. I love that it looks like this lasts a very long time so the money spent isn’t bad stretched out. Thank you.

    1. Ivy Boyd

      10/13/2017 at 10:11 PM

      Hi Jennie! I actually have quite large pores, especially on my cheeks. Think orange peel! When applied in a pressing motion with a damp sponge or a buffing brush and then set with a translucent setting powder in a pressing motion, I find you can totally minimize pores. Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy to help.

    10/23/2017 at 2:45 PM

    Hi. I love the post you did for LL. I have just started using the products and so far love them! However, I thought EVERYTHING WAS paraban free and now reading the foundation isn’t has me concerned. I was even thinking about signing up as a beauty guide as I love they are Leeping Bunny approved, but now I’m uncertain what to do. Yikes! Do you have any idea if they will be taking the paraben out and when?

  15. Madison

    10/23/2017 at 2:57 PM

    Hi, I had made a comment about parabens in the foundation and my concerns, but I believe my tablet put in the wrong email address. If you could answer my question about that at this email that would be wonderful! Sorry about that.

    1. Ivy Boyd

      10/25/2017 at 1:42 PM

      Hi Madison! Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment. I can definitely explain more about this. You are correct; every LimeLight product is paraben-free except the botanical foundation. I also wish it didn’t have them! It’s made by makeup artist industry brand RCMA, and it’s basically an old school formula that’s been around since 1963. While I would prefer it not have parabens too, I have learned one thing that makes me feel a bit better. Because it’s a wax-based formula, it’s designed to sit on top of the skin, vs. absorb. Skincare absorbs into your bloodstream quickly but I’ve been told that this foundation does not. That being said, I totally get your concerns. I am hopeful that RCMA will remove the parabens eventually, at LimeLight’s urging. Thank you again!

    So many eyeshadows make my eyes itch or water. Sometimes, I can apply them and wear them all day. Once I remove the shadow, my eyes will itch and water for two or three days. Someone told me that it might be the dyes in the shadows. I was also told that whatever is in red dyes (crushed shellfish possibly?) could be the culprit. Anyway, in your dealings with Limelight shadows, have you found clients to have problems with itchy eyes? Or, have you had someone who has never been able to wear shadows finally able to wear Limelight shadows without problems?

    1. Ivy Boyd

      11/28/2017 at 12:41 AM

      Hi Melanie! Thanks for reading and commenting. I know some do have issues with the red dyes found in pink and purple shadows and I’ve actually found that to be carmine, derived from crushed up beetles. It can be found listed in the ingredients under the following names: carmine, crimson lake, natural red #4, C.I. 75470 and E120. Some of the LimeLight shadows do contain carmine thus are not considered vegan and could potentially irritate. Carmine is listed as the second to last ingredient, meaning that there is a small amount of it but it is present. This has me thinking and I now want to find out which colors have it and which do not! I assume it’s the more pink shades as LimeLight doesn’t even have a purple right now.

    Hi there! I stumbled across your review tonight- I did Makeup prior to having kids and worked for a few companies that I love but I’ve since stopped using most things due to sensitive skin and breakouts and seeming to have reactions to so many.
    Does the foundation tend to cause breakouts since the wax in it? I’m so tempted to try this but so nervous.
    How do you like the translucent powder?
    Thank you!

    1. Ivy Boyd

      01/20/2018 at 11:57 AM

      Correct. It does and I wish it didn’t. What I can share about that is that on a LimeLight product ingredient chart, where it once said “working on it” under the paraben-free column, it now says “soon to be” so I’m hopeful! It would be a very welcomed change. Thanks for reading and commenting! I appreciate it!

    Ivy, thank you so much for this post. The pure review and well known information you provided is amazing. I am a Director with Limelight by Alcone and wish everyday that there is a way I could reach out to the public about how real and true our company is. Truth is, unless you’re in the beauty industry and have the inside scoop, no one wants to listen. Your information has taught me a lot and I hope I can retain and share it with my community to bring Limelight back into the light of professionalism and not just another direct marketing company. I strive to find more testimonials and reviews like this daily. Again, thank you!

    Hi there! I’m just curious— if RCMA color process is the exact same formula as LimeLight’s botanical foundation, is there any specific reason(s) to buy via LimeLight vs. RCMA? The RCMA foundations are $23 vs LimeLight’s $36. Thanks!

    1. Ivy Boyd

      03/01/2018 at 10:02 PM

      Hi Jessica! Good question and I’ll answer as honestly and completely as I can for you! So yes, it is the same formula. Why bother buying the LimeLight one then eh? So I will say, for personal use, I do prefer the LimeLight packaging for a few reasons. I find it easier to swirl a brush or sponge in it and I like that it’s magnetic so you can build a custom palette if you like doing that. Since I retail LimeLight but I’m a makeup artist too, I truly feel like I can match someone’s shade better than most. However, all that being said, if you already have your shade and you need to save some cash money, I feel you and you go on and do that thing! Thanks so much for reading my blog and taking the time to comment! xo!

    Omg! I love your honesty! I’m a brand new beauty guide and was just doing some more research on LL while waiting for my kit to arrive. I have little to no experience in fact, I would have to say I’m a fish out of water! But in reading your reviews, I’ve already learned so much! Would you mind if I shared your reviews on my facebook page? You are much appreciated!

    Thank you !

    Do you think the Fenty blotting powder would work as a setting powder over the botanical foundation? I ran out and bought the fenty foundation and powder when it launched like everyone else and the foundation just does not work for me but too late to return and I’d like to try to use the blotting powder if i could . I’m in love with my limelight though! My skin is normal to dry though…

      Hi Frankie! You can use whatever powder you’d like! I often use different translucent ones. I’d go for it with your Fenty. I have dry skin too. The struggles.

    Did you happen to use any of the Limelight brushes? They sell a set of 15 makeup brushes for $280 dollars. I’m wondering if it’s a good investment.

    Hey! I just stumbled on your page and want to say thank you for all this info. I have been a pro makeup artist for the last 5 years and have finally decided I need to start selling something to make some extra cash (also a former Sephora girl who felt weird about being pushy to make people buy because my clients trust me!!)
    This seemed to be the top brand you recommeneded. Have you had good success at using these on clients and shifting that into selling it to them? I’m a little nervous about starting that conversation with my clients. I would love to chat more!

      Hi Elizabeth! So nice to “meet” another former Sephora girl/MUA! If it’s ok, I’ll email you some additional details on how I’ve integrated LL products into my artistry business, what has worked and what hasn’t. Let me know if that’s cool?

    Hi, I know this is an older post, but I found it while researching Limelife and RCMA products for personal use. Do you have an opinion on the Limelife Perfect Translucent Setting Powder? It was not listed in your rating system above. 🙂 I saw another MUA rave about it.

      It’s a nice, finely-milled translucent setting powder. I prefer loose powders but this is great for touch ups.
