So now that I have slightly more free time on my hands, I can finally review and talk about all the products I’ve been hoarding. One of those products is the new Kat Von D Shade + Light eye contour palette in Plum. Prior to this, I had never tried any Kat Von D makeup products but I have heard great things about her collection, so I thought I would write a quick review on it. The Kat Von D quad comes with 4 shades: a base, define, contour and highlight shade.
It comes packaged in a cute black and purple packaging. It also comes with a little card which has instructions for using the palette.
As for the palette itself, it has some pros and cons. For the most part, the colours are versatile and blend-able. The base is smooth and pigmented. The other shades are not as smooth, I found that I had to build it up a couple of times to get a proper swatch for the define and highlight shades. There was also quite a lot of fall out which I’m not sure is normal for Kat Von D palettes, but this one had a decent amount of fall out. But on the other hand, it is long lasting, the colours don’t fade easily.
The palette is priced at CAD $34 at Sephora Canada and for the price I believe it’s worth it since despite the fall out it is long lasting, and the overall quality of the palette is comparable to other high end brands.
