These two colors are both cooler iridescents: Neptune is a blue-green, where Venus is more of a soft blue-violet. The two colors are fairly close, though Venus does pair better with warm and neutral colors (as in the Romantic Comedy kit) where Neptune matches better with neutrals or cools (as in the Beauty Oasis kit). Either makes a good glaze or highlighting color; but trying to use these as standalone colors often gets mixed results. Any of the eye quickies looks amazing over a dark-colored cream shadow base.
