I’d like to talk to you about the hyped up Lime Crime Venus palette, which was launched quite some time ago but it’s still very popular even now.
Mash Botticelli's classical painting with the rebellion of the early 90s, and you get VENUS: The Grunge Palette.
In a sea of nude palettes, VENUS emerges with 8 game-changing shades: rust red, brick brown, burgundy and unconventional neutrals. Recklessly pigmented eyeshadows can be worn alone or mesh flawlessly for a nu-grunge look with a soft, painterly finish. Beautiful mirrored box with kitschy artwork makes VENUS the ultimate collectible artifact.
Initially it was packed in plastic package.
Lime Crime is famous for their exceptional design.
Here is the eyeshadow itself. The palette comes with 8 shades. All of them are fantastic and will be great both for everyday and for non-traditional looks with pink-red tones!
Venus is a silky matte wine color
Shell is a shimmering pink and orange shade
Aura is a shimmer ivory
Creation is a matte orange and brown shade
Muse is an intense dark-red matte
Divine is lilac-gray matte hue
Rebirth is a warm dark-yellow matte shade
Icon is dark-brown matte shade.

I’ve applied all swatches with an Artdeco eyeshadow base. The eyeshadow goes well with it and the Essence base. Applying it with the Maybelline Color Tattoo, the eyeshadow creases towards evening. So keep that in mind, because it can be an issue with you too. The thing is that I thought that it was the problem of the eyeshadow, but I was wrong. It was all about the eyeshadow base!
The product is highly-pigmented and doesn’t fall out, which is the most important thing. It takes about 7-10 minutes to apply this eyeshadow, so it’s really fast. The eyeshadow blends out well and applies easy-breezy.

At the moment my palette looks like this after a few months:
I don’t use this product very often. However, I’m obsessed with it and I don’t understand how I lived without it earlier! I’d like to try Venus II in the future.
As I’ve mentioned already, there are 8 shades in the palette. Each of them weighs about 2 g. I cannot but recommend you try this awesome eyeshadow that makes me happy every time I use it!
Volume: 16 g
I recommend this palette!
Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
