Have you ever tried Lime Crime Eyeshadow? #VenusTheGrungePalette

I LOVE eyeshadow. I have tried so many different shades and brands, but have always wanted to try out Lime Crime. Why? Because they are known for their bold colors.
I now own the Venus Palette and I love it.

Here's what it looks like:
It's a big blue and yellow pallette with beautiful artwork and a decent sized mirror inside.
These are what the shades look like on my skin tone from top left to bottom right.

As you can see, some are a bit shimmery, and the others are matte. The second shade didn't show up too well in the photo, but it shows up on my lids pretty well after a couple of applications.
Also, although a few of the shades look awfully similar in the photo, in person, you can see the difference.
One thing that I do love about this eyeshadow is that the colors are very pigmented. You don't need to use too much. Most of the shades only need one application to show up darkly on my lids. Usually with most eyeshadows I have to keep on applying coat after coat to get them to show up dramatically. You don't have to really do that with this brand. This is actually one of the most common things that I have heard about Lime Crime. The colors are intense, light or dark, but still intense. I really like that.


My final thoughts on this? I think that this palette full of grungy shades may not look very appealing (I'm only talking about the shade choices--the case is gorgeous), but the shades are actually really nice. I love them all. Get a rock star look or even a smoky eye look. The lighter shades are perfect for some inner eye highlighting. The colors can be mixed together in quite a few different ways.
I can't do that with a lot of my other palettes.
