Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Review

Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette

The Kat Von D Innerstellar Palette is a new limited edition palette that features 12 new eyeshadows.

The website calls these “celestial neutrals” hence the name I suppose. I don’t know about all that, but I can tell you that I saw this in the store and it only took me a nano-second before I decided I wanted to buy it! The colors completely called to me. You wanna know why? Ok here goes.

In the last couple years I have gotten, ahem, older and realized my taste in makeup is changing. I always kind of felt that my 20’s and 30’s was the time for really wacky and/or bold eyeshadow colors and finishes, and that one day they wouldn’t look that hot on me anymore. Well that day has come. I feel pretty asinine wearing a super bright eyeshadow now. Maybe it’s not even that I am 42 and it looks bad, maybe it’s just that I am not really into it anymore. Having said that though, I am definitely NOT into wearing boring barely-there nudes all the time. I like color! I like purple! This palette is filled with color and purple, but it’s more on the tame side.

What I love about it also is that the colors are cool-toned which I slightly prefer over warm shades. There is a great mix of light and dark shades and neutral to smokier shades. The shadows are super buttery and soft with really good pigmentation. Oh and of course the design of the palette is really pretty on the outside and there is a huge mirror inside.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Agatha and Countess

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

This afternoon I’ve got two goodies for ya that you can find at Sephora: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Agatha and Countess.

In my previous post about these lipsticks I mentioned that there are 30 shades to choose from, which is really great! Many of them are bright or kind of strange shades, but there are some very wearable shades in there as well.

Kat Von D Lightning Liner Swatches & Review

Kat Von D Lightning Liner

Kat Von D Lightning Liner is new to Sephora and it comes in four metallic shades.

This liner is different than anything I have used before because you have to kind of assemble it before you use it. More on that in a minute.

Currently the shades are Poe (metallic purple with violet shimmer), Hyde (metallic deep brown with bronze shimmer), Jett (metallic black with silver shimmer) and Hex (metallic deep plum with burgundy shimmer). They have a brush tip and a click-activated pen. Usually I am not a fan of the click-activated glosses or liners because it seems like you have to twist or click for an eternity to get the color out, or too much comes out. This worked really quickly and with just 1 or 2 turns you get the proper amount you need out. The precision brush feels soft and glides along the lash-line very smoothly and perfectly.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Swatches and Review

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick is brand new to Sephora and comes in a mind-boggling 30 shades!

I nearly passed out when I first saw these on the Sephora website last week. I mean 30 shades!! And the studded cases! And it’s Kat Von D, and you know I have a *thing* for wanting practically everything she comes out with. Unfortunately (or maybe this is a good thing) when I was at Sephora recently they didn’t have more than 6 shades out on display, so I couldn’t check out the whole line. From the 6 I saw I decided to try out two in shades in L’ Ecole Des Femmes and Sexer.

These lipsticks have a color cushion technology that provides 10 hours of wear, a velvety touch and one-swipe color. They are formulated with vitamins A, E and C for hydration and antioxidants, and have a light creme brulee scent. They come in matte, metallic, iridescent and shimmery finishes. The studded black tubes were designed to look like one of Kat’s favorite bracelets.

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette

After much hemming and hawing over the Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette I caved and bought it. And I do not regret it at all.

This exclusive to Sephora palette costs $46.00, which might seem like a pretty price to pay, but it’s really worth it. Inside Monarch you get twelve warm-toned eyeshadows  as well as a mirror and they are all encased in a heavy duty, sturdy cardboard magnetized palette. I tell ya, if it wasn’t for her awesome packaging I might never have first been attracted to her stuff, so I thank her and curse her, haha! ;)
