Blogtober Day 2 - Violet Voss Holy grail palette

Oh my days this is a palette legitimately actually sent from the heavens, you probably all know that I am a warm toned shadow girl (Isn't everyone these days). This is one of those palettes that just has everything you need. Not only does it have the warm tones it also has the pink tones and some more basic neutrals. It has three textures, your basic mattes which are super creamy and bendable with minimal kick up, satin shadows which again are incredibly beautiful and then you have the super metallics which are just incredible. They're incredibly buttery and are perfect for things like Halo eyes. 

Overall the formula of these is super consistent and there are no dud's in the palette which I feel is something which happens far too often in shadow palettes. I'm not the biggest fan of the cardboard packaging however it is a fairly sturdy cardboard and does have a nice strong magnet which is a big issue I have with palettes with this type of packaging. It also has a huge mirror which is super handy especially if I am doing my makeup away from my dressing table.
