Happy Thursday guys. Almost the weekend!! 

I hope everyone reading is well?! 

I cannot believe it's almost been a week since my birthday. Time is flying by so fast and it makes me feel so sick that I still don't have a job. I know in each post I write I have been mentioning this but it's a way to vent and I am getting quite worried now as to why I am not getting anything. Anyone else in the same boat as me? 

As I mentioned it was birthday Sunday just gone, so as a little present from me to me I treated myself to a cheeky Beauty Bay order. I purchased an LA Girl - orange correction concealer, a Morphe crease blending brush, Makeup Geek's 'Creme Brulee' eyeshadow pan and finally the Violet Voss 'Holy Grail' palette. 

Now, this palette is highly sort after, limited edition and as soon as it comes into stock it has disappeared minutes later. Last time this palette came into stock I didn't get the chance to buy it as it sold out so quickly. 

You can only get this in America, mainly, so when it comes into stock on Beauty Bay everyone is flying at it. 

I was so happy that I managed to get my hands on this palette because the colours are SO freaking beautiful. Totally up my street and so warm which is the tone I love to work with the most. 

The Holy Grail palette retails at around £35 on Beauty bay and has a few similar shades to Anastasia's 'Modern Renaissance' palette and is still cheaper. 

When I first opened my package and the palette was revealed to me, my initial thought was - 'it's a lot smaller and thinner than I expected'. 

The packaging the palette comes in is monochrome which I love, it's super sleek, expensive looking and chic.

The above pic is of the outer packaging and on the inside the palette is protected in bubble wrap, this is why I thought the palette was thicker in depth. 

The palette itself matches the box but the palette is made out of a soft, velvet style texture which is easily markable but not so much wipeable. Take care in that.

The name of the palette 'Holy Grail' is a statement in itself and is basically suggesting that this palette is all you're going to need, what you're going to reach for and one of which you will highly recommend. 

I for one, TOTALLY AGREE!! 

This has got to be my favourite palette right now. No word of a lie. I am super glad I invested in the hype because it is 100% worth it.

There is nothing not like about this palette. The shadows themselves are highly pigmented, you really don't need a lot on your brush to get an amazing colour payoff. The payoff it true to pan and they are so buttery and blend beautifully. 

The palette consists of matte shades and shimmer shades and if you spray a little Fix Plus spray before applying the shimmer the colours' really pop. I am so impressed it's unreal. 

This palette is totally suitable for all skin types in my opinion and there are colours within the palette that everyone will like. 

Perfect for autumnal looks let me tell you.

The swatch above is from one light swipe, can I get an "amen"!

Another thing I like is the names of each colour, they are really thought out and clever. 

I am totally in love right now. 

Below are swatches of the whole palette so you can get an idea of what they look like. 

Obviously I am a pale face so they will show up different on different skin tones but ya get me. 

N/B - Tones starting from my wrist are the swatches from the top left of the palette through to the last pan on the bottom right.

 You get 20 shadows within this palette and to me that's pretty good value for money. I love all the colours, especially the warm mattes and the cranberries. 

As soon as this comes back in stock again you NEED to get this a.s.a.p. It really is a must-have, a staple 'HOLY GRAIL' in your makeup collection and I would totally recommend to EVVVVERRRRYYYONEE!! :) 

Below is an eye look that I created with this palette. 

I decided to do a dramatic cut crease using the shades 'Transition' 'Hashtag' and 'Bestie' in the crease line. 'Brownie Points' and 'Teddy Bear' in the outer crease. I used 'Toffee' and 'Awesome Sauce' on the lid and finally on the inner lower lash line I used 'Wine N Dine' mixed with a separate purple shadow. I then added some glitter to the lower lash line and the black/brown you can see is my gel liner in which I smudged out mixed with 'Brownie Points' and 'Teddy Bear'. 

The lashes are Vagas Nay - 'Grand Glamour'.

  3. Literally love every single shade of that palette! Especially the shade toffee! It's horrid not having a job and actively looking! I was unemployed for 5 months before I found anything and I was at my lowest. But keep your chin up, something is bound to come up soon! www.miniaturemilk.co.uk // Imogen

    1. Thank you lovely :) I am on my 8th month now and it's really making me sad. I feel like someone is going around telling companies not to employ me. Ha. I am a brilliant worker, I am shocked. Ha. Yeah Toffee is a fave amongst a lot of people. It's so nice to work with. I would of been even cooler if there was a black in the palette. xxx
