Review for: Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette
worship matte eye palettes. My previous go-to palette was the Tarte Tartelette palette, which has amazing blendable neutrals that I love. But when I heard that Kat Von D was coming out with a neutral eye palette, I was like, this I have to see!I saw it and bought it in a heartbeat. As much as I love, and still love, the Tarte paletee, the Kat Von D version is a stop-the-presses, whoa, perfect palette! Let me start with the colors. Oh, the colors! There are three looks, with four shadows in each. The looks are warm, neutral and cool, but you can mix and match among the quads. The larger shadow is the base shadow, while the other three are highlight, contour, etc.They go on like a dream. I used them without a primer, and they lasted all day. The colors are so easy to work with, you'll be amazed at how many more looks you can do because you aren't trying to clean up a mess. There is no fallout; the colors are rich and full with no chalkiness.I have brown eyes, and I love all shades of brown shadow. It's a true neutral for me; it makes my eyes look much bigger than they are, and yet I never seem to be wearing makeup (unless I purposely go for that kind of a look, like with a smokey eye.) These shades are also marvelous for girls with blue eyes. Nothing, but nothing,makes blue eyes pop like being surrounded by brown shadow.Naturally, the brown mattes in this collection are heaven-sent for women over 40. Using any number of these shadows will make you look good, no creasing, no wrinkle highlighting. Everyone will be looking at how gorgeous you are, and not at your makeup!This is also a nice-sized palette, with a pretty, solid case and a good mirror. If you get it at Sephora, where it's sold exclusively, you'll save a chunk of change from some of the prices I see here. At the Sephora price, this palette is a STEAL!! Grab it!
