As with all things, nostalgia can be a two-edge sword. Looking back on things through the prism of today, the reality that some things just don’t hold up is apparent. Of course, the opposite is true of some things as well. When you realize how well some things hold up, the realization that they were clearly ahead of their time becomes evident. Polly Pockets, with its vibrant pastel cases and stylish doll outfits, was a stand out toy brand in years past.
They made quite an impression on some of the folks over at Lime Crime. The beauty brand has come forward with a line of products that showcase the stylings and influences of Polly Pockets toys. It is the hope of Lime Crime that their Polly Pocket inspired products make as big of a splash as the toy line did in its heyday.
Lime Crime has applied the colorful influence of Polly Pockets toy cases to its own Pocket Candy Palettes line of eyeshadow. There are presently three differently themed Pocket Candy Palettes for sale. These themes include Pink Lemonade, Sugar Plum, and Blue Bubblegum. Each one comes in a case reminiscent of the cases that Polly Pocket toys came in. Also, like the Polly Pocket toy cases, the Pocket Candy Palettes can actually be tucked away in a pocket.
Within each themed palette are five shades of eyeshadow that compliment the color and tone of that particular theme. Pocket Candy Palettes are currently priced at $34 per palette or $90 for the set of three.
