Lime Crime Venus Vivid Palette – Review and Swatches

The Venus Vivid palette is the next one in the Venus series from Lime Crime. It costs $38 from Lime Crime. It has 8 x 1.61g of product and a 12-month shelf life once opened. It’s vegan and cruelty-free.

Unleash your creativity with the Lime Crime Venus Vivid Palette. This bold, contemporary palette boasts a range of finishes including matte, metallic, shimmer and foil. The rainbow-hued shadows boast vibrant shades of cobalt, orange, yellow, green, fuchsia and violet.

I say is $38 but at the time of writing this, it’s only available in a bundle with other items on Lime Crime for Halloween. It’s available at Ulta and in the UK you can only get it at LookFantastic.com.

The packaging is as always cardboard but this time the outside has venus traced as if she was a neon light. The inside has a mirror but as it’s cardboard it does not stay open. Inside the shadows are surrounded by a neon pink. I like this for a vivid palette and sticks quite well with Lime Crime aesthetics.
It’s very much a rainbow palette, although they’re not all matte colours. There are 4 matte and 4 shimmer/foil colours. So not the perfect palette for a rainbow but still nice and bright. The formulas on these are soft and pigmented. I got a little kickback in the pan but no fallout.

Star Burst is redder than it is orange and Happy Place’s green shimmer is hard to see.
I’m a little confused about the names in this palette. I mean all the previous ones have seemed to theme well and make sense but this one really does seem to be a random collection of names.
It also really reminds me of the 10th Birthday palette. I suppose that’s also because it’s a pigment palette with Lime Crimes formula. The yellow shades in both are shimmers, which is very interesting. They’re actually a nice compliment for one another, providing the mattes for each that the other is missing.

I really like it. They go on the eye nice and bright and last all day.

If you’d like one of these palettes you can get it from Lime Crime for $38 or LookFantastic in the UK for £35.
