I’ve just looked up the Limecrime Venus palette that you have, because when you mentioned sage colours I was immediately interested. I love sage shades – such an underrated colour. The palette in question is gorgeous and those sage shades are just right for a subtle, but stunning eye look. Cyborg would work so well with them too.
The only properly sage shade I have is from Stila’s In The Garden palette.

I’ve been lusting for Limecrime Venus XL II for what seem years, but I know it’s not that long. It’s a gorgeous palette, do you think it’s worth the prize? I was a tiny bit disappointed by Venus XL I, probably because I had so many red and pink leaning eye shadows prior to getting it. I still use it, but not as much as I thought I would.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Look you loved this week?: I saw a look on Natasha Denona’s page where she used Enigma from the Metropolis palette with her multichrome liquid shadow in Dogbane, which I have a dupe for with Clionadh Forge, so I replicated the look, and I LOVED it. It was easy to do, and Clionadh Forge is my favorite multichrome I have. Here’s a link if you want to see!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Clionadh Forge.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: my PMGL Celestial Divinity palette. It’s just so lovely.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I used my Pixi Beauty Reflex Light palette – with one of the lighter gold shades on the whole lid, Auburn Blaze on the mobile lid and PMG’s Lapis Luxury on the lower lash line. I paired it with Maybelline’s Spice for Me lipstick. I really like the gold/bronze and blue combination.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Not really – I just keep looking for palettes and shades that work with what I am wearing.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: It’s very hard to use up any lipsticks at the moment with all the mask wearing, but for eyeshadows I’m hoping to use some favourite shades of Vice 2, Lorac’s Pro Metal and some of my Sydney Grace singles.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Look you loved this week?: I took out the Chanel Empreinte du Desert quad and used it on my eyes Thursday and Friday (Friday was the only day I worked this week) – 1 and 4 on my upper lid and 3 under my lower lashes with Sephora Cappuccino to line; MAC Glow Play Blush in Rosy Does it on cheeks (not that anyone sees them) and a bit on my forehead around my hairline; MAC Craving on lips
Any new or old favorites discovered?: New has to be ABH Rosette eyeshadow (can anyone here who’s heard my laments about red shadows over the years actually believe I BOUGHT a reddish eyeshadow?) Old favourites: Dior Feel 5-pan. It is so beautiful and I should use it more.
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Anastasia Rosette!!!

Look you loved this week?: I did a look with the Colourpop It’s My Pleasure palette, with Sleeper all over the crease, and Mr. Sandman in the inner corner and blended up into the inner crease

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I used my Kaleido (not to be confused with Kaleidos) Skin Blush in “Primadonna” that I got in an Ipsy a while ago. It’s a glowy peach blush that really compliments my skin

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: So many! It’s NaNoWriMo so I will be wearing makeup every day for the whole month! The possibilities are practically endless
