You guys know how crazy obsessed I am with anything grunge, right? So of course when I heard about Lime Crime releasing the ultimate grunge palette, I knew I had to get my hands on it!
The Lime Crime Venus Palette consists of 8 gorgeous colours inspired by 90’s grunge, each shade is different from the other, there’s the amazing red toned browns, to some beautiful peach tones & a gorgeous orange based brown – which I absolutely love! The eyeshadows in this palette are so velvety & smooth, making them extremely easy to apply. What I love most about this palette, is not only the gorgeous shades it comes with, but mainly how crazy pigmented they all are, the colour payoff is so intense a little goes a long way! My favourite way to apply these shades is with a fluffy brush (Sigma E40 or MAC 217) if I’m applying it in my crease, or if I’m applying it on my lid I use a flat shader brush (MAC239) or my finger, which personally is my favourite way to apply any eyeshadow, I feel like when I apply the product with my finger I can really press it in & I’ve noticed this method really gives me the best colour payoff.
Here are swatches of all the shades in the Palette:
So do I think this palette is worth the hype? HECK YEAH! This is hands down one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes of all time, & definitely one of the most used in my collection. If you can get you hands on this I would definitely say go for it. The Venus Palette has been such a big hit, it has been sold out for quite a while. I’m not too sure when it’ll be back in stock but you can keep checking here: http://www.limecrime.com (I have been told that the Lime Crime website is currently down due to a data breach, but hopefully it’ll be back up in no time!)
