What Are Your Must Haves From Violet Grey?

Our Violet Grey giveaway was lit—like, hundreds of entries lit. The winner received a haul worth almost $300 of our staff picks, including products by Chanel, Byredo, RMS Beauty, and Caudalie. Congrats to Supergreater Nevvi, and well earned.

Cassandra Grey launched Violet Grey in 2013, and has since described it as "the Rotten Tomatoes of beauty" due to what she's dubbed "the Violet Code." Instead of gathering the reviews of film critics, Grey asks beauty professionals—only once products are approved by them does she consider carrying it in her store.

"The Violet Code is a testing process and set of standards by which our community of top makeup artists, hair stylists, estheticians, dermatologists, and celebrity influencers distinguish the finest beauty products in the world from the tens of thousands on the market," reads the brand's website. "The result is a curation that is truly the best in beauty from those who know best."

Our community also happens to be a sort of "Rotten Tomatoes of beauty" and we can all agree that Violet Grey is one of our favorite places to shop for our HGs. What's your favorite thing from Violet Grey? Add your review.
