    gorgeous colors, great pigmentation.

    Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Venus XL Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette:

    this is a perfect palette for anyone that likes pink and mauve colors. they all blend wonderfully and have good pigmentation. the only color that is a little difficult to blend is boticelli, but it's fine if you pack the color on then blend. i wouldn't recommend digging your brush into these shadows either; use a light hand and you'll have no issues. was a little ehh about the price until i looked at my other palettes. the pan size of these shadows are .6g bigger than KVD and .17g bigger than Tarte, for reference so the price really isn't that bad for what you get and the quality of the shadows. packaging is wonderful as always.

    Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Venus XL Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette:

    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.

    Gorgeous and pigmented

    By PixieStyx

    from Miami, FL

    Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Venus XL Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette:

    First off: this palette is INCREDIBLY easy to use if you are gentle. These shadows are very pigmented and they are also very blendable, BUT if you swirl your brush vigorously into the colours, you'll have to tap off tons of pigment AND you'll probably have a nightmarish time trying to blend. If you just gently dip your brush, lightly tap off any excess, then apply, assuming that you like these colours, you'll probably fall in love with this palette.
    Next: The shades are beautiful and I love how they work with hazel and blue eyes especially. I've used this on my own ghost-pale and cool complexion with hazel eyes, on a fair/light and warm complexion with green eyes, on a fair and neutral complexion with blue eyes, on a medium/tan and warm complexion with brown eyes, and on a very deep and plum complexion with brown eyes, and the pigments showed up well on all of these. I've used KvD concealer in White Out as a primer, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and Urban Decay Primer Potion in Anti-Aging, Sin, and Eden when using this palette, and I found it worked best with the KvD and Too Faced, although I didn't have any problems when I used the various Too Faced potions.
    One of my favourite things about this palette is the variety of finishes. There are creamy mattes, shimmering metallics, soft satins, and duochromes.
    After almost 20 years as a MUA (mostly theatrical and dancers, but also proms, weddings, etc), Lime Crime is really worming its way into my heart. I don't think it will displace Urban Decay as my overall favourite brand since the '90s, but it is a CLOSE second, thanks mostly to this palette and Venus III which is my personal ride or die small palette for my own face.
    As I said, you do have to be gentle with your brush when picking up product, but the formulas are all so blendable and buildable that their softness has not caused me any problems. Additionally, if you are gentle, there is almost zero fallout.
    I am very fond of pinks, mauves, berries, and wines - and this palette is FULL of them, as well as some very complimentary neutral melons, lavenders, and golds. If you don't love shades in the pink/berry/wine family, then you probably won't like this palette - the neutral shades seem more like pops, transitions, and complements rather than the main theme, although there are enough of them to create entire looks without any of the pink/berry/wine shades that make up the majority of the palette's colour story.
    Once I hit pan, I will be repurchasing this palette, because it is so easy to work with and I really love using these colours.

    Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Venus XL Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette:

    I was so pumped to receive this palette and it didn't let me down. the matte shadows had me worried when I swatches them because they felt a little rough and gritty but when applied to the eyes it felt so soft and had great pigment!

    Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Venus XL Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette:

    I have more palettes than I'd like to admit to however this knocks it out of the park. Pigmentation is insane, blends beautifully and stays all day long. I reach for this much more than the others.

    Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Venus XL Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette:

    I really liked this palette its different. I dont seem to care for it as much as I thought I would tho. It blends alright but some of the colors just dont seem to show up. I'm going to play around with it a little more because I really want to like it.

        Are the pans the same size, bigger or smaller than the other Venus palette? I understand there is more weight because there are are more pans, but I am wondering if they are as large as the generous sized pans in my Venus 3?
