Most Helpful Positive Review More good than bad!
This is a really solid palette. I compared it to my Modern Renaissance palette and while it seems quite similar they are in the same family rather than dead on dupes of each other, despite the swatches you may see floating around. Compared to MR it doesn't apply quite as opaquely at first swipe, some shades are better than others, but it also doesn't have the fall out that MR has. I was even just doing swatches on my arm and the MR had a lot of fall out and the LC XL did not.
I do wish the color story was a little less random, I prefer they go from dark to light, but I am having a lot of fun creating looks with this palette. The shades are beautiful, some take more building and working with than others, but overall I am quite happy with this purchase and I would easily give this as a gift or recommend it to a friend.
Most Helpful Critical Review Looks great in the package, not so great on my eyes
I thought the colors looked absolutely gorgeous when I opened up the palette, and I was so sure it was going to be my favorite. However, when I applied the colors to my eyes, they all looked like a light red or burgundy, even the darkest color and lightest grayed pink. I do not know if my skin tone does not work with the palette or what, but I have used similar colors from other palettes and this did not happen. I really liked the Venus Grunge palette so I am not sure why I had issues with this one.

Such a good palette
Rachel from Illinois
This palette is definitely worth the money. The colors are stunning and they blend beautifully.
Alessandra from Colorado
I adore this palette and use it nearly everyday! The colors are gorgeous, pigmented, and blend beautifully. And the packaging is just a plus! I love being able to open my makeup drawer to a work of art. It's so good I even use it over my Jeffree Star Blood Sugar palette, which is very high praise.

These shadows are amazing I use these palettes more then any others I own. There soft but not to soft so they blend like a dream. They are pigmented and long wearing. Packaging is always adorable. Color combos are fun unique.

I love romantic pinks and purples, and had been eyeing this for a while. When I spotted it at my Ulta, I immediately put down the palette I had been thinking of buying and started considering this one. It's so so beautiful, and I do not regret getting it at all. Wonderful pigmentation, beautiful color story, and it all blends and works beautifully. Perfect for dreamy, cutesy looks. Absolutely adore it!!
Didnt like at all
peach from wv
I got this palette and tried several times and different ways to make it work and just couldnt. They dont blend that well, the colors are super hard to put together, just didnt work for me. I was honestly hoping it would work and that I would really like it but unfortunately it just didnt.
I'm in love
Cassie from Seattle
I'm giving it 4 stars because it's not beginner friendly. the formulas are a little different and be gentle with the mattes, don't shove and fluff your brush in the pan. I love blending and taking my time but I could see some people struggling with it. I used my ulta points on this so it's up to you if worth the price. It's very pink and cherry, I bought mine in store but I see people in reviews saying it looks different online vs in person. I know I will get great use of this.
The palate for green eyes
The Fairy Unicorn from Wash DC
I love this palate! It's the perfect palate for green eyes and compliments my cool skin tone! Super pigmented but blends well. I do t know why I waited so long to get this! Way better than the photos too.

The pigmentation though! Ugh, beautiful colors and so easy to blend. These pink shadows will change your life. Bought this palette when it was on sale and I'm in love with it!
Love it 🔥🔥
Plaiine Jane from Saint Louis
This palette is everything! All the colors flow together so perfectly and is very pigmented. No need to write a long paragraph because it's really that good. Now there is some kickback but it's not a deal breaker for me because everything goes on so nicely and smooth. I most definitely recommend this, you have to get this !
Should've read the reviews
Candijo1988 from Arkansas
So I purchased this on impulse. After, while waiting on it to arrive was when I read the reviews.... in the picture, it looks to be a neutral, purplish, burgundy type palette which is right down my alley! However, once it arrived out wasn't. It is definitely more of a cherry, pink, and rose pallete. Of that's what you're into and looking for this would be great. If not, skip this one. I ended up returning it the day after I received it.
Taylin' the Truth from Conyers,Georgia
The only reason I wouldn't recommend this is because there are so many other choices that aren't so steep in price. Try Morphe!
I AM IN LOVE!
KaraEldridge12 from Wichita, KS 67204
I always wear neutral eye looks and was looking for something outside of my typical eyeshadow colors! What made me pick this was it's amazing quality of eyeshadows and the pigment was AMAZING! My holy grail is Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette because of the quality and this can now be my new favorite because it's as amazing as that palette
One of my very favs
Brande from MI
This is a gorgeous palette, and one of my favs, and I have ND, and Pat McGrath that I use less! It's just pretty guys, just get it!
Cat from NY
Amazing colors, super pigmented. Goes on smooth and stays all day even without primer! Not cakey or spotty. This is my new go to pallet. So many options for multiple looks!
It's a must ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mariscal 4 from Los Angeles ca
Don't walk run 🏃🏻♀️ to get this palette 🎨... the pictures don't do it justice . I'm obsessed with it. Giving me Jeffrey star blood sugar vibes with the renaissance Anastasia .. it's perfect 👌🏿 trust me my collection is huuuge and this one is my co to one. So far ..,
Marcy from Texarkana, TX
This palette was both worth the (short) wait and the price! The colors compliment green eyes so beautifully, definitely don't regret a thing! Super pigmented and blends nicely. Deserves more than a 5 star rating!
Desiree from Oceanside
This pallet is so pretty! I don't usually use these kind of colors but this pallet really made me want to step outside my box! It blends so beautifully.
No for me..
Peach from Wv
I wanted to love this palette sooo bad but I just couldn't get it to work for me. The colors come off way darker than they are and they just dont go together I couldn't get a look that I liked from using this one.
Em from California
Omg I am so obsessed with this palette. Well I've only used it once because I just got it, but the shadows are so easy to blend! I just love all the shades it is a very pretty palette.
Less Than Thrilled
LooLoo from Des Moines
I bought this from the lime crime website. I had been coveting it for months before splurging. I had purchased the original Venus palette and it is probably the very best palette I've ever owned. I have green eyes, fair skin and red hair and the colors were perfect for me, they performed beautifully! Soo vivid and stayed true all day and into the night. I was excited about this palette-seemed like a bigger better version of the original and I liked the rosey colors. I've been playing around trying to make this work with different combos, primers, using setting mist on my brushes and it is not working as well as I'd hoped. The colors swatch beautifully, but I'm never pleased with my end results. They are not bad but I honestly expected to be wow'd and I'm just not. For the price paid, I'm considering returning but probably won't bother. I have had best results when I combine shades from other palettes with this. That shouldn't be the case here with such a large palette with the different formulas. I don't think these shades blend as well together and the end result looses its "just applied" vibrancy not long after moving on with my day. It's not awful-the quality is just not as good as my beloved original Venus palette in my opinion.
The Berry Best!
Cherry from Seattle, Washington
Very soft, buttery and blendable eyeshadows. This palette is built of pink hues and bold berry shades. There are not a lot of neutral tones in this pallet, which I appreciate. Takes very little to do a lot of color coverage. Long lasting, in fact use a good remover or you will have pink everywhere. A definite go to for pink, berry, and grunge looks. The "berry" best berry shade range palette.
Mener from California
I have a ton of eyeshadows from all brands. This is one of the top 5. Wonderful quality! I just got the new palette and it is exactly the same quality.
