The Venus XL Lime Crime Eyeshadow Palette is really something! From its stunning shades to textures, it’s a palette worth investing in! I know I’m slightly biased when it comes to eyeshadows, I do tend to fall in love with many, but the Lime Crime palette is really spectacular!
The Lime Crime eyeshadow palette is not called XL without reason. This is the third Venus eyeshadow palette that Lime Crime has brought out. The other 2 Venus palettes have 8 colours and the Venus XL has 18 colours. And these aren’t any colours, they are a beautiful collection of pinks, purples and nudes with different finishes and textures. Truly dazzling, in my humble opinion. The colours go perfectly for every occasion, for an everyday look or for an evening out. The colours can be worn together with other colours, or alone. Either way, you’ll look hot!
The palette comes with shades in matte, matte sparkle, glow and metallic finishes. The matte is self-explanatory, although it’s worth mentioning that the Lime Crime mattes are ultra buttery and soft. The matte sparkle is the classic matte with a touch of added sparkle. The glow is a unique, individual blend, it has a soft luminous finish, yet it’s not a shimmer or satin shadow. The metallic is ultra shimmery, a real show stopper. I love all 4 of the different finishes. Each one does its job perfectly!
One of the unique features that really caught my eye with this eyeshadow palette is that the names of each eyeshadow are written underneath the colour. Usually, the names are on the back of the palette, which can get slightly annoying. I’m all for convenience and this definitely makes the palette more convenient and easier to use.
The colours are highly pigmented and they don’t fade. However, even when the shadows are long-wearing, I always wear a primer under my eyeshadow as I have terribly oily lids and it always holds my eyeshadow better. My favourite primer is the Urban Decay Primer Potion.
I’m really impressed with how easily the colours apply and blend! They go on with one swipe of the brush and blend seamlessly. Seriously this is one awesome palette!
I honestly love the Venus XL palette and I wasn’t expecting to love it so much. The quality is amazing and in general, I am extremely impressed with it. Not only do I love the shades and their quality but the packaging is also swoon-worthy! The palette has a big mirror inside the palette which is always a useful addition.
Overall, I could find no faults, well er actually, it is a little pricey. However, for the quality and colours you get, I do think it’s worth every penny! Is this palette a must? Probably not, but I’m sure everyone’s makeup collection could do with an awesome palette like this one, even if you have a ton of palettes already!
