This is yet another makeup item I purchased in Vegas back in 2013 at Sephora, I've finally decided to blog about it because it bloody deserves a post! Kat Von D has an amazing collection and I love the colour pay off of these eyeshadows, I decided to pick the 'Ladybird' palette because of the interesting mix of cool and warm tones.
First of all the packaging is so pretty, it's unique and I love that it's metal because it feels very sturdy. I also love how it has a decent mirror inside which is great for on the go touch-ups. It includes the Kat Von D eyeliner in 'Immortal Love' which is a lovely warm brown shade, perfect for my blonde haired, blue-eyed clients. All of the shadows are matte which I prefer and they are so blend-able and extremely buttery soft.
FUR ELISE, VESPERTINE, RENHOLDER, SIOUXSIE-SIOUX
So here we have the cooler shades of the palette: Fur Elise which is a purple/burgundy, Vespertine is a light peach (perfect for all over the lid), Renholder is a grey/brown and Siouxsie-sioux a navy with greyish undertone. My faves out of these are definitely Vespertine and Renholder as they are both perfect for over the lid and Renholder is a fab crease colour for smokey eyes.
UNREQUITED, HARLOW, WOLF, CLEOPATRA
The warmer shades of the palette are neutral and perfect for day-time looks. We have: Unrequited which is a muted peach-orange, Harlow a warm toned medium brown, Wolf another warm toned brown but on the chocolatey side then lastly my favourite Cleopatra which I absolutely love because it's the perfect matte, burnt orange shade and is great for warming up the crease of a black smokey eye.
The only fault I have to pick with this palette is the fact it doesn't include an eyeshadow brush. I think for such an expensive brand, it should include a decent eyeshadow brush instead of the eyeliner but I can't complain too much since the eyeshadows are all perfect and matte. I would most certainly buy more of the Kat Von D palettes because of the quality of them...
