Violet Voss: Rose Gold Highlighter Palette

Violet Voss Rose Gold Highlighter Palette 2

Omg omg oh em gee – sooooooo many highlighters! This time it’s Violet Voss releasing their NEW Rose Gold Highlighter Palette on Thursday, 5.04! The palette comes with six new shades in Bloom, Rouge, Tea Rose, Fleur, Petals, and Blossom. How springy-sounding are those names?! So cute! Each of these shades has insane pigmentation and reflects a beautiful metallic & duochrome finish.

Obviously, rose gold is super trendy right now & I don’t know any beauty lover that doesn’t love them some good rosey-goldy glow, do you?? But we’ve got to say – I’m not sure these shades are going to suite many of us… As you can see from the swatches above, they appear so SO STUNNING on the darker skin tone on the left – that is a true highlight in all of it’s rose gold GLORY! However, check out the swatches on the lighter skin tone to the right – these are so stark! If you were to brush that on the tops of your fair-skinned cheek bones (even lightly), I’m afraid it would come off as a very apparent streak of shimmery pink or luminous peach right across your face. Lemme tell you: Not. Cute. I get that those may simply be heavy swatches but nonetheless, this clearly wouldn’t work for anyone fairer than a medium, olivey skin tone which is like… ugh, so lame!

And, as we’ve said many times before when covering previous releases of Violet Voss such as their Ride or Die and Matte About You palettes, their products tend to be on the pricey side. Like, way past the point of high end. Although a price hasn’t been released for the Rose Gold Highlighter Palette we would guess it would be in the range of $55 – $65 – CRAZY!

  1. I LOVE rose gold! It looks so pretty! I’m not too sure if it will look good on me, but I’d love to try this highlighter since I’m obsessed with glowing recently and am always on the lookout for new buys ❤

  2. I love how much rose gold there is around now. This looks so pretty but probably so expensive.


  3. I wanted this the moment I saw it but agree, don’t think it will work for super fair skin after seeing the swatches 😞 So gorgeous though if you can work it!
