When I first saw the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette pop up on Instagram, I was instantly in love! There is nothing I love more than a warm eye shadow palette. I am always on the hunt for the perfect, use-every-single-day-of -my-life, take-with-me-when-I-travel, can’t-live-without-you, palette. AKA my Holy Grail palette. It’s like Violet Voss KNOWS me.
This palette is GORGEOUS! I ordered it within seconds of it going up for sale on ShopVioletVoss.com and it sold out almost immediately. This palette sells for $52, but Violet Voss advertises a promo code for $10 off. So 20 shades for $42 is a pretty great price, that breaks down to a little over $2 a shadow!
All of these shadows are pretty fantastic. They are soft, pigmented and blendable. I LOVE the range of matte and shimmer shades. This is definitely a palette for someone who is really into warm, (mostly) neutral colors. If you are looking for something really dark and smoky, you may want to supplement this palette with a deeper brown than “Teddy Bear.” There was only one shade in the entire palette that I didn’t love the way it swatched and that was “So Jelly.” Its a little powdery, and hard to get a really intense color out of it. BUT, when you can build up that color, its a pretty interesting, almost duo-chrome, shade. And I’m into that.
If you can get your hands on this palette, I absolutely recommend it. I love that color selection and shadow quality. You can get a wide range of looks, from everyday neutral, to full glam, to bold, using this palette.
