Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

The Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette is hhheeeeerrrrreeeeeeee! If you can’t tell, I was really excited about this palette coming out. First of all you know I am a Kat Von D palette freakazoid. I needs them all! But a matte eye palette? Yes please!

It features 12 eyeshadows arranged into 3 quads each with a base, contour, define and highlight shade. There is a neutral one, cool one and warm one. The colors are super soft, blendable and all go together really well. It also comes with a handy tips and tricks guide which shows you both a natural and a smokey look per quad.

Interesting thing is it has over 100 5 star ratings on Sephora and just 2 four star ratings and none lower than that. I didn’t love it quite THAT much just by judging hand swatches alone. But I have yet to try it on my eyes because I JUST got it, so my full opinion of it remains to be seen.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Poe

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Poe

Good afternoon!

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Poe is a shade I’ve hemmed and hawed over since these lipsticks first came out. I wanted it and felt like I needed it, but knew I would probably never wear it. But when I was at Sephora the other day something came over me after I swatched it for the millionth time and somehow it ended up in my little basket. And now that she’s mine I don’t really have any regrets. Hell, the new Marilyn Manson tour is coming here in July so maybe I’ll actually have a place to finally wear it!

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.
