The spring and summer months are ideal for reawakening your style, reclaiming your beauty, and for trying new things, including colors, textures, and patterns. While the well-established and zany makeup company, Lime Crime, always releases new colors despite the time of the year, their new Venus 3 palette scores a “wow” on the vibrancy scale.
Encased in an eye-catching pink package, this new product undoubtedly rivals its fierce counterparts, like Venus, Venus 2, and the Venus XL. Though each palette offers its own unique concept colors boasting of one swipe coverage, the Venus 3 focuses on pink and glitter, which is basically spring and new beginnings all wrapped into one, killer package.
Lime Crime is famous for its original way of introducing colors into the makeup world. After all, the company was one of the first to ever wow the crowds with unorthodox shades, so why would they ever stop now? Their legacy is undoubtedly strengthening by the day and this Venus 3 palette further validates that makeup is art–pretty, pink art.
Meet the Shades
Perhaps one of the most different swatches in the whole palette, Beam is a light pink shadow with sparkly undertones. Is it purple? Is it silver? Nope, it’s Beam and looks amazing when paired with a more neutral swatch, like Rapture, a light pink shimmer shadow.
This deep purple hue will have you dreaming of tropical sunsets on the beach. Pair it with Heavenly, a sparkly gold shadow, to ensure that the sun won’t be the only thing shining this spring and summer.
Though this is a makeup line intent on allowing people to branch out from the norm by claiming their daring originality, they understand that the world is often not accepting of over the top makeup on a daily basis. Because of this unfortunate fact, they often incorporate more relaxed shades into their palettes, so Dreamy is a muted matte pink as they describe on their website. When matched by their Beloved shade, which is a matte mauve, heading to your nine to five jobs will be that much sweeter when you know you are looking fine.
This matte wine shade is perfect for when you are succumbing to the dark side for the day. Of course, when accompanied by the light pink shimmer, Rapture, you can create a dramatic and Smokey look for a cocktail party, night on the town, or even for a more relaxed working environment.
Regardless of how you choose to sport your Lime Crime Venus 3 palette, you are sure to be noticed. With flawless coverage and very concentrated color, the shades offered in this release are powerful yet sweet, bold yet classy, and just what the makeup mogul is all about.
