Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette


One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette. Swatches for this palette are starting to pop up online, but I haven’t seen many on my skin tone yet, so I wanted to share those with you. I can’t give a review on these yet since I haven’t used them, but the swatches seem pretty promising. By the way, if you’re wondering why I haven’t used this palette yet it is because I recently gave birth to my first child! Since then, I haven’t really worn any makeup, but I swatched this prior to giving birth so I didn’t want the swatches to be in vain.

This palette is broken up into 3 sections of 4 shadows each. Each quad is separated by the undertone of the shadows. The 3 quads are Neutral, Cool, and Warm. In each quad, the large shade at the top is the Base and the bottom 3 are the Contour, Define, & Highlight shades. Included with the palette is a guide that gives this information and shows 2 different looks that may be achieved using each of the quads.

So far, I’m most excited about the Warm quad, but I think almost all of the shades will work for me. Hopefully I will be sharing this in a favorites video soon! If not, I’ll be sure to update you once I get around to using it enough to give my thoughts on it.

Is the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette one that you will be picking up? If you already have it, what are your thoughts on it?

  1. Congrats!!! Enjoy this time it goes fast.
    The palette looks really nice I recently bought the Viseart palette but returned it. The colors didnt show up well ion me. I think I might try this instead

    1. With all the raving going on, I’m surprised the Viseart palette didn’t work for you. Glad I didn’t waste my money on that because I thought about it. 😃 Hopefully the KVD one is better.

  2. Congrats on the birth of your son. The palette looks amazing I might have to pick that one up I bought mainly skin care this VIB sale but the next one will be mainly makeup.
