Persephone Minerals’ Venus Crystal Power

An attractive enough gold-orange with enough depth that it isn't a yellow-orange, nor a neon. The finish is almost metallic…but not quite. I was hoping for another duochrome, or a duotone at the least; but the shadow is attractive. It's almost a lighter version of Beauty from the Earth's Dragon Slayer.

The Sailor Venus collection was not brought back when Persephone re-opened. Instead, the five (or was it six?) Sailor Scout collections were consolidated into the Sailor Senshi, and the colors reformulated. Not all of the colors made the cut. Many of the paler duotone and interference shadows were…‘casualties' isn't exactly the right word, but it's the best one I've got.
