Per Sephora, this palette “provides a modern lineup of cool-toned hues in a luxurious balance of finishes.” The site also states that “this flawless high-pigment shade range will help you achieve endless ice-cold smokey looks and soft washes of color for everyday wear.” Keep reading to see more info about the Cool Vibes palette including swatches and a couple of looks.

Cool Vibes is my first palette from Violet Voss and makes me want to try more from the brand. I’ve had this palette a few months so I got a chance to really experience each shade. The mattes to be buildable, blendable, and smooth. They apply okay over bare skin but the smooth application came when I used an eye primer and set it lightly with powder. Using a primer by itself made it a little difficult to blend.
The shimmers were also smooth and subdued. They’re not the loudest or most shiniest shimmers but they look beautiful nonetheless. Also important to note that I did not experience any fallout with any of the shades, which is always a good thing for those who like to do their eyes after their base.
Overall I can recommend the Cool Vibes palette to anyone who loves neutral cool tones. The darkest shades performed well deepening my crease but those who have a deeper skin tone may have to pull up another palette for that purpose. It’s also a great palette for those who can’t wear bright colors for work. I mean, it’s another neutral palette but there’s enough variety in the shades to come up with different looks.
