Lime Crime 'Venus' Palette

Hi Lovelies!
I finally got the beautiful 'Venus' Palette from Lime Crime and i'm so glad I purchased it!
This was also my first time ordering off the Lime Crime website and I had no problem with my order in fact it was shipped out the next day.
For any makeup addict this is a beautiful collectors piece that you would want to display on your dressing table or vanity!
I have also posted about my Lime Crime Lipsticks and Velvetines collection if your new to the Lime Crime brand.

A beautiful palette inside and out with a modern take on a classical design.
The cover has a kitsch take on Botticelli's masterpiece 'The Birth of Venus' (well the top half anyway) with metallic gold lettering and a classical border.
Inside it has a decent sized mirror with the same metallic gold border surrounding it.

Described as a grunge palette with 8 'newtrals' and rusty reds for a 'Nu-grunge' look and painterly finish. 
This is definitely a flashback to the 90's makeup era. 
Create a look with this palette and all you need now is a nude lipstick or actually the Velvetine 'Riot' that was made to wear with this palette, it looks a bit like the shade 'Venus'. Maybe thats my next purchase...

These shades are so pigmented I really can't fault any of them.
My favourite shades would have to be Shell, Rebirth and Muse.
First Row:
Venus- The color of bruised fruit AKA 'marsala' (velvet matte)
Shell- Opalescent shell-pink (glow)
Aura- Pearlescent ivory (glow)
Creation- Rust brown (matte)
Second Row:
Icon- Dark brown (matte)
Rebirth- The color of an over-ripe nectarine (matte)
Divine- Dusty stone (matte)
Muse- Deep burgundy red (matte)
