Beauty: Violet Voss X Nicol Concilio Eyeshadow Palette Review

Violet Voss X Nicol Concilio Eye Shadow Palette - £43 from Cult Beauty
If you’ve not heard of the make up brand Violet Voss, then you’ve clearly been living under a rock (well several rocks!) Despite being super popular overseas, I feel like Violet Voss hasn’t had the hype it deserves in the UK. It’s a brand I rarely see on beauty blogs, despite being available on Cult Beauty and Beauty Bay. 

This is my second Violet Voss palette to add to my collection as I already own the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette (which is incredible by the way) and if you are a girl (or guy) who loves pigmented eye shadows then you definitely need a Violet Voss palette in your life. First thing I noticed about the Nicol Concilio palette is how gorgeous the packaging is, I mean it’s holographic, can it get any cooler?

Secondly, how amazing are the shades in this palette? And thirdly the names are pretty awesome too. My favourite shade names are Pizza, Chawwcolate, Hangry and Bruh. I really like the range of colours in this palette as there are loads of matte shades, but also a good amount of shimmer shades too. What I also like about the Violet Voss palettes is the size of the eye shadows and no matter how much you love them, I have never seemed to hit pan.
(L-R Pizza, Blou, Sagittarius and Gigi)

My favourite eye shadow shades to wear are orange, gold and brown shades and this palette is full of them. However, they also have some incredibly pigmented bronzes and a stunning blue and a green shade. This palette has already inspired me to try out new looks and I am DESPERATE to use the ‘Pingy’ shade as the pigmentation of that eye shadow is absolutely incredible (as you’ll see in the picture below!)

(L-R L.A, Pingy, Victoria and Palm Tree)

I’ve noticed when I’ve been watching make up tutorials on YouTube and seeing photos on Instagram that more ‘daring’ makeup looks are trendy at the moment such as using really stand out colours on your eyes. I’ve seen a lot of green eye shadow looks but also blue and green looks. I’ve been trawling the Internet for a tutorial using pingy but I’m yet to find one!

One thing I’ll say is that these glitter eye shadows are some of the most pigmented eye shadows I have ever tried and the fall out is very minimal. I’ve trialled a look with the gold tones and they look amazing on your eyes (especially as an inner corner highlight!)

If you’re an eye shadow fanatic (like myself) then I’d highly recommend that you add this palette to your collection. You get 25 high quality pigmented eye shadows (which is amazing for the price) especially the glitter shadows, as they are incredible. I also think that if I was to streamline my make up for a holiday/going away for a few days this will be the only eye shadow palette that I’d take with me as it just covers all bases and all occasions.

What do you think of the Violet Voss X Nicol Concilio Palette? What eye shadow palette is on your wish list at the moment?

Oooo! Look at the colours! I experiment with brighter colours every now and then but very rarely as I'm a neutral girl at heart.

This is such a pretty palette and the swatches look amazing! I've always wanted to try Violet Voss shadows, but every time I pop by their site, the palette I want is sold out :( I'll have to pop by again after this haha.
