Swatch Sunday: Violet Voss Hashtag

Violet Voss Hashtag

One of my purchases at IMATS LA was this is beautiful Violet Voss Hashtag palette – the colour combination is absolutely incredible!

Although the shade names are certainly based off of popular hashtags (as you would expect with the palette name!), I definitely get a lot more of a sunset vibe off of the shades.

Violet Voss is now also being conveniently sold at Sephora, so you needn’t rely on picking them up at IMATS or buying direct through their web site (which could cause customs charges for Canadians).

I’ll have a full review and five looks coming to my YouTube channel in several weeks, but in the meantime, please enjoy the swatches!

I’ve got a What’s On My Face post for you today, a makeup tutorial up on YouTube tomorrow and then a “Totally Cute Challenge Week” on Friday. So if you’re looking for inspiration, hopefully you’ll find something you like on here this week. ūüôā

Even though I had picked it up aaaages ago at IMATS New York, I hadn’t yet had the opportunity to play with my Mehron Fire palette. The look came out pretty nicely, but they were HUGELY benefited by a white, sticky base.

Swatch Sunday: Violet Voss Holy Grail

Violet Voss - Holy Grail palette

This is the kind of palette that dreams are made of!

The Violet Voss Holy Grail palette speaks to me on a level that I didn’t even know existed.

While there’s plenty of neutrals in here to keep the normal folk happy, it’s the oranges and reds that are making my heart scream with excitement! This was a random purchase during IMATS New York that was spurred on by the bloggers I was attending the tradeshow with¬†(and I’ve got zero regrets!). This is a limited edition palette, so¬†if you can get your hands on it somehow… DO IT!

It’s hard to pick favourites, but I’m living for Wine N Dine (shocking, right?), Toffee, Cranberry Splash, On Fleek and Hashtag.¬†
