Review: Violet Voss Holy Grail



For so long I have tried to get my hands on this palette but it’s constantly out of stock. Back in December when I saw it was back in stock directly with Violet Voss I couldn’t part with £90 for a palette it didn’t make any sense. (This palette would come to £90 with postage and custom fees) Especially as it was previously available to buy from beauty bay for £45.00. I contacted beauty bay to check if they would be restocking it and they sadly told me they weren’t. From my understanding there has recently been a problem between the two companies. I was seriously left in two minds about parting with the money and just ordering it, but right before Christmas I decided to give it a miss and maybe next time. A few weeks later they announced a UK stockist and when my husband said he’d buy it a present from my 21 month daughter I was over the moon!  

  Is it worth the hype?
OH MY GOD YES!
BUY THE DAM PALETTE LIFE IS SHORT
(Now that’s off my chest back to the review)


(Please ignore the damage to cranberry splash it happened after I decided to put another palette over it!)

The Holy Grail palette is filled with 20 eyeshadows in metal, matte and satin finishes. From looking at the pictures you can tell it’s a warm toned but I think anyone into eyeshadow will find something they personally love. It comes in a cardboard box the packaging has been changed recently. I personally liked the old matte black more. I think it made it look that little bit more expensive and classy. I’m a sucker for pretty black clean packaging.

Swatches: 


My favourite shades are, Ploof, Awesome Sauce, Bestie, Toffee, How U Doin, Bat My Eyes, So Jelly, Teddy Bear, Glamping and Cranberry Splash.

How Cute are the names of each shadow also?

I’m super impressed in a palette of so many shades there’s not one I dislike and wouldn’t work on me. I personally think if you have blue/green you can’t go wrong in buying this. I always find these are the sort of colours that make my eyes pop. Overall I’m so glad I got this under the tree.

Have you tried it?
Or do you plan on buying it?

  1. These are really lovely colours and so wearable for everyday, I can see why you love it! I can definitely see why you were reluctant to pay £90 though - steep for a palette!

    1. To be honest I think I'd end up spending the £90 if the uk didn't stock it! It's amazing and worth it x

  14. Eeeep this palette is so beautiful!! I was lucky enough to get the Violet Voss x Laura Lee palette for Christmas and I'm so in love. Before this palette I was terrified of matte shades but this has completely and utterly changed my mind. My birthday's coming up so this palette may be going on my list..!

  19. This palette is absolutely gorgeous and it would be a dream to own - lucky you! but I honestly don't think I could spend that much on an eyeshadow palette. The shade names are so cute, I agree!

    1. Yeah it's pricey but if you can get your hands on it here it's £45 xx

  20. This pallete looks amazing but it is one which I don't know if I could spend £45 on but maybe it is one which I will have to hint to my other half about as well as the Naked Pallete.
