Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette

Hi everyone! This will probably be my last post for a few weeks as I'm going to Florida on Friday, I can't actually believe it's almost here, we've had it officially booked since January but we've known we were going for about two years so the fact that we actually go in a few days feels so surreal! I'm at that point where I don't feel that excited because it doesn't feel like I'm actually going anyway as I've been waiting so long. So definitely expect some hauls when I get back as I'm planning on doing so much shopping, especially in Sephora and Bath & Body Works. So happy to be writing this post today as I've wanted this palette for so long but it kept selling out. I'd seen the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette floating around on the internet and I fell in love with it, I think it's definitely the prettiest palette I've seen in my opinion, but I missed out twice on Beauty Bay as it sold out so fast. When I checked my email and saw it was back and still in stock I actually had to buy it, I knew if I did I'd regret it so much!


I've never actually tried or even heard of Violet Voss before I'd seen this palette, I had seen the Laura Lee palette after I'd missed out on this one twice but it had a few too many bold colours in it for me which I knew I'd never use, however this one is so warm toned and pink and bronzey it's actually my ideal colours in one palette. The packaging isn't too exciting, just plain black, however it's not too big considering their is 20 eye shadows and it has a decent sized mirror.


I'm really not fussed on the plain packaging though because of how gorgeous the shades are! I feel like some of the shades make it perfect for this time of year but there is also some that would work so nice in Summer. To be honest I don't even use eye shadow that often but I feel like I will get quite a lot of use out of this because it's so pretty. You get a mixture of mattes, metals and satins and this palette is also cruelty free.






First row: Crystal, Ploof, Thanks A Latte, Transition, Hashtag


Second row: Awesome Sauce, Bestie, Toffee, Chill, How U Doin


Third row: Bat My Eyes, Cool Beans, R U Kitten Me, So Jelly, On Fleek


Fourth row: Brownie Points, Teddy Bear, Glamping, Cranberry Splash, Wine N Dine

I actually can't rate this palette enough, I'm so happy it didn't disappoint because I had such high hopes for it! The shades are so creamy and blendable and the shimmer shades are so pigmented! The mattes don't have as much pigment as the shimmers however they still are really easy to to blend and they aren't drying. The only two mattes that aren't as good as the others are from the bottom row and they are Brownie Points and Teddy bear, they definitely took a lot more work even when swatching and they were a bit patchier. They are still good though, just not great. All the metals and satins are so gorgeous though, the only one that isn't as good as the others is So Jelly, it took more work to make it show up and the colour isn't my favourite which was surprising because it looks so pretty in the pan. My favourite shade without a doubt is Cranberry Splash, I love the colour and it's really pigmented, and I also love Toffee and On Fleek as well they are definitely my other favourites.

This palette wasn't cheap at £42 from Beauty Bay however considering how good the quality is and the fact that you get 20 eye shadows it's not bad value for money at all. If you love pinks and golds like me then you need this in your life, I think it's my new favourite palette right now! I definitely think this is the only palette I'll be taking on holiday as you can do so much with it, plus I feel like this packaging is so good for travelling as it's quite secure and could take a few bumps. So glad I bought this, I was a bit on the fence because I did really want it but at the same time I was saving and had the whole "do I really need this" thing going on, but yeah I really did need it, it's amazing! Let me know in the comments if you've tried this and what you think!

  11. Maybe not the cheapest, but it does look like you get quite a bit for the money! This palette is absolutely gorgeous! I don't think it is something I'd go for personally, as pinky shadows don't really suit me!

  19. I actually managed to talk myself out of this purchase as I already bought the ABH Modern Renaissance palette and felt they were a bit too similar. However these warm shades are so perfect for Autumn :)
