Kat Von D forever!!! I’ve been a huge fan of her’s since those Miami Ink days…

She is one of my idols in creativity, style and ambition. Seriously LOVE her. So, when she came out with her now famous make-up line through Sephora I died. Then, learning that her products would be cruelty free it couldn’t get any better.

I finally got my hands on the eye contour pallet. As some of you know, I have a huge eye for eye contouring. Pun intended. Her pallet consists of three quads: neutral, cool, and warm. As much as I love the Urban Decay Naked pallets….this beats it by light years.  The galaxy should only carry this product. It’s absolutely pigmented, carries all the necessary neutral colors, and it’s all matte. Also, the packaging couldn’t resemble Kat any better.

Let’s be real, you end up buying an eye shadow pallet because when you see it all together you think “OOOOOHHH PRETTY COLORS.” But, what the heck, you end up only using the browns, whites and uhm…maybe the blue? We all know you will rarely dip your brush into that neon Easter pink everyday. (HEY! I praise you if you do that!)

I tried all the quads…as a quad. And I only did one technique for each quad to easily compare.

All three looks consisted of MAC Pro Long Wear Foundation, Tony Moly eyebrow pencil, and Chanel Compact Radiance Compact Powder. Photos taken with Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Final Thoughts:

The Warm Quad– It deserves to be worn everyday. I would do this look for work, or for something that requires you to wear the color white and cover your tattoos. I love it for being super subtle.  Lipstick is Persistence by MAC.

The Neutral Quad– This quad is what I would definitely use when creating the pinup look. The white and the dark browns are exactly what I need in creating a deep crease in my eyes. Lipstick is Russian Red by MAC. 

The Cool Quad– Use use use for a night out! It’s dark, its smoldering, and its screams “you bitch”. I want this for gigs, a drunk night out or just to bring a little darkness on a sunny day. Lipstick is Copenhagen by NYX.  

 

 

Which look do you like the best?
