Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette Review

Hey all

As soon as the Kat Von D make up hit the scene I knew I had to have some. I’m still desperate for the liquid liner, liquid lipsticks and the foundations as they’re meant to be great for pale skin tones. My first product was the Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette. I initially wanted the contour palette but opted for this instead. 


I was drawn to the eye palette as it was a totally matte palette (something I didn’t previously own) and the top three shades were large pans and I thought I could use them as contour and highlight shades and get a multi use from these palettes. I love that it comes with some ideas for looks to create to so is great for beginners or to help grow make up confidence. 


Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette Review

Apologies for the used palette photos. I initially took them brand new but wasn’t happy with them when I uploaded them. The palette contains 12 different shades set up in three sections. The large shade is meant to be the base, the 1st shade underneath the contour, the second shade define and the third shade highlight. All the colours are really pigmented and blend out easily. I don’t tend to follow what the shades are for and mix it up. I love that it comes with warm and cool tone so will suit most skin tones!!


Here I used the large shade called Lazerous to add some definition in the creases Laetus and Lucious on the lid. I love using these shades for a natural eye look. Lazerous also works as a great brow shade.


Here I went heavier with the colours and blended lots of the brown shades through the outer v to deepen it. The colours all blend really well together. I’ve also used Lazerous to contour here and Laetus to set under the eyes. I love this as a contour shade. It looks so natural against my pale skin as it’s more of a taupe shade. I’m wearing the lip liner featured on the blog on Monday Rimmel 1000 kisses in Tiramisu. With Revlon Mauve it Over (which I’ve now learnt is discontinued, sad times !!)

I love this palette and can’t wait to try more of the Kat Von D range, the foundation is next on my list. I’m tempted to purchase a sample of it to try out. It’s not the easiest make up range to get but Sephora do now ship to the UK. I personally use a facebook group to order my American make up from. 

How do you get American products? Have you tried Kat Von D products?

Love M
