Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette Swatches and Review!

Violet Voss

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to a special post today on the highly coveted and currently sold out Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette. Since Violet Voss will be taking pre-orders Thursday, May 19th, I decided to bump up the review date to today so that in case you’re interested in purchasing this, you have some time to mull over my review.

So, let’s get to it, shall we?

Violet Voss Holy Grail

Violet Voss Holy Grail Eye Shadow Palette 

Described as, “Violet Voss Cosmetics is proud to present 20 highly pigmented eye shadows in a variety of must have finishes.  Our PRO eye shadows are made with the highest quality ingredients and formulated to allow for smooth blending.  The perfect go-to for any occasion to create your flawless sexy look.”


Creamy and smooth application

Great selection of mattes, satins and metallics

You can create a variety of looks

Full sized pans

Cruelty free

Great pigmentation


Pricey- $52

Limited edition

Case is prone to getting dirty fast (minor issue)

Some shades are fairly similar once applied

Tiny bit of fallout on some shades

Eyeshadows seem a bit fragile

Contains talc (some people are allergic)

Overall: I am very happy with this palette and highly recommend it. Although it is a bit pricey, the formula and shades are so creamy and blend nicely, making a the application process a breeze.  There is a bit of fallout from some of the shades, Toffee and Bat My Eyes come to mind, and you really need to pack on the color for Glamping to appear.  Some of the shades, when applied to the lid, kind of look the same (Toffee, Awesome Sauce and Chill) yet have subtle differences.  You can use these though to seamlessly blend the colors together.  I’m not a major fan of the packaging as it accumulates shadow fallout easily but it’s a minor issue and not a deal breaker for me.  I have noticed that the eyeshadows seem a bit fragile, perhaps due to the creamy consistency.  The plastic protective sheet that is included in the palette seems to scratch the eyeshadows very easily so I need to be careful when removing it.  I’m not sure how well this would hold up when traveling or if it accidentally falls.  Overall, though I think this is a palette worth investing in, especially if you like warm eyeshadows. Fingers crossed that they make this palette permanent.

  1. I’m so out of the loop. I’ve never heard of Violet Voss before! The shade names are a little cringey though… “How U Doin” and “R U Kitten Me”? 😛 The mattes look impressive!

    • It’s okay, the only reason I know of this is because of Instagram. Ugh, I swear I need to not login because it’s temptation everywhere. Seriously though, I’m glad that I found it because it’s so gorgeous. I agree, On Fleek is a bit much but hey the colors are great so it’s all good. 🙂

    • Thanks Anne! I agree. As soon as I saw them I was like must have, haha. Not sure if they have an actual store but maybe check online and see if they offer international shipping. 🙂
