YES! Back with an eyeshadow palette swatch post, who else loves these as much as I love writing them?!

Violet Voss is an American makeup brand that I don’t really know much about as they don’t seem to have any information about themselves as a brand on their site, or anywhere as a matter of fact. I know that when their Holy Grail palette hit the makeup world sometime last year the world went nuts over them, and well… So did I.

It was so hard to get your hands on a palette as they were selling out as soon as they went back in stock and I ended up leaving it quite some time before I eventually got my mits on one. It’s definitely one of the most hyped about palettes of 2016 though, and could it make a second year running and be the most talked about palette of 2017 too?

Anastasia Beverly Hill’s brought out their Modern Renaissance palette  with colours that were similar to those dreamy shades in the HG palette and since I managed to get that when it first came out on CultBeauty I pushed the Holy Grail to the back of my mind. Most people I know have either bought one or the other and not both.

However! BeautyBay restocked the Holy Grail palette and your girl managed to grab it. *YASSS*


The palette itself contains 20 eyeshadows (perfect) for the price of £43.00 which also works out at just over £2 per shadow, which if you ask me, is pretty amazing – right?

Violet Voss claim to have made this PRO eyeshadow palette with the highest quality ingredients and is formulated to allow smooth blending. It includes a mixture of matte, metals and satin finishes which is a perfect go-to palette because you can take it everywhere and have plenty of options. You can (and will) easily create a full eye makeup look with this palette, rather than reaching for another for that extra shade to finish the look.

Each shadow weighs 1.8g which FYI is apparently what the MUG individual pans weigh too (and they range from £6 to £10 EACH!) and of course this palette is cruelty free/vegan!


Below are the swatches of this aaaamaazing palette in row order from top to bottom!

As you can see these shade swatches are INCREDIBLE, and I can’t wait to create some beautiful eye looks with this. If you have any suggestions/requests I would love to hear them in the comments below! Also be sure to keep a look out on my YouTube channel for a look solely on this palette!

Do you have this palette? If so what do you think?

I’d love to know what YOUR favourite eyeshadow palette is right now so I can try it out too!

Lots of Love, Debra-Bow xxx

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but these eyeshadows look absolutely stunning! My favourite palettes are the urban decay naked ones! Xx

  • Confetti & Cashmere

    These colours look so beautiful! I can’t say I am very good at make-up or at least I don’t think i am but when you have a beautiful palette, application can be so easy! I love the dark brown shade and the shadows do look pigmented too which is a bonus! xx


  • Oh what a beautiful palette! All of the colour look gorgeous, but I think I’m in love with the bottom row in particular. Can’t wait to see what looks you come up with 🙂

  • The pigmentation of these shades really is impressive! I’m not sure that all of these are colours I’d personally wear, as reds and pinks don’t generally suit me! I’d love to see a look that you create with this palette though, perhaps a YouTube video on it if you have time! Gorgeous photos as ever, I’m glad to see you got your hands on this highly sought after palette!

  • this is possibly one of the most beautiful palettes I’ve seen! I’m pretty boring with my eye shadow tones but I can deffo see myself using all of these xx

    I like the look of the pigmentation and the consistency of these shadows, but I don’t often wear reds so I’m not sure if I’d use them all. Still, if you get lots of use of them that’s great and I can’t wait to see some of the looks you come up with.
