Lime Crime Venus XL Palette

No comments :
I got this beauty that is the Lime Crime Venus XL Palette from Ulta during their sale, and I couldn't be happier that I decided to pick it up! I was putting it off because I had just bought the Jeffree Star Blood Sugar Palette and this one seemed like a lot of pinks and red just like that one. However, the two palettes actually compliment each other really well!
There's 18 new shades here, and the palette itself is the size of the two previous Venus palettes put together. Here is a shot of the shadows with flash and without flash:
I swatched each row with no primer/base so that you can see how pigmented they are. Most of the mattes in this palette feel SUPER dry to the touch, but I haven't had issues with them blending or performing at all.
Eden - semi-metallic pale brick red
Love - warm metallic gold
Passion - matte magenta
Fresca - mauvey taupe base with gold glitter
Inspired - metallic berry
Idolize - matte caramel

Aphrodite - matte deep berry
Nu Classic - metallic bronzey brown
Burnt Gold - matte medium brown
Flora - matte bright coral
Scallop - matte peach
Celestial - matte brownish berry with gold glitter

Ethereal - iridescent pinky coral
Triumph - matte mauvey pink
Supreme - matte purple-berry
Blank Canvas - matte cream
Boticelli - matte blackened plum
Goddess - rosy pink satin

That Boticelli color is EXTREMELY pigmented but also the driest feeling of the bunch. I should also mention that the darker shades tend to stain without a good base, so that is something to keep in mind. Other than that, I really enjoy this palette and think it's beautiful! If you are a lover of pinks and reds, it's a definite must.
