Kat Von D shade and light contour kit

Friday, February 20, 2015

Ok can I just say I fluffy heart love this! Really, really love this! Watch out for my post "how many contour palettes does one person need" coming soon... 

The truth is I feel like I need them all, like I'm doing myself a disservice if I don't at least try them. It's a sickness really. Anyway when I heard Kat Von D was coming out with one for spring and I watched her video on Sephora I knew it wouldn't be long until it was mine, my own, my precious! It just so happens that she launched a brush along with the palette so I had to grab that too!

This is a game changer guys, these colors are incredible! It comes with 6 colors 3 highlights and 3 contours. 



The highlights are

Lucid Is a bright beige with yellow undertones and it has a matte finish. The texture is amazing very silky. It was very buildable which I find to be a great attribute when working with these lighter colors.

Lyric Is a yellow beige color with warm undertones and a mix between a satin/matte finish. It was incredibly pigmented.

Levitation Is a yellow peach color with warm undertones. It has a satin finish and amazing color payoff that is very easy to blend. All of these are super smooth!


The contours are

Sombre Is a medium taupe brown. It has warmer undertones and a mix between a satin/matte finish. The smooth texture makes it easy to work with even for a beginner.

Shadowplay Is a medium brown with warm undertones. It has a satin finish. It has good color payoff, it's the color I reach for most in the palette. It is super soft, and very blendable .

Subconscious Is a dark brown with warm undertones. It has a satin finish. Just like the others its pigmentation was amazing! These colors are so blendable, I love their soft, silky texture!

Now on to the brush, you know how I feel about brushes! I know I say this alot, but you NEED this brush.





One side is angled and the other is a small version of a ball brush with a rounded tip. I personally love the angled brushes for contouring, I find them much easier to work with. The ball tip side of this brush is perfect, it's just the right size. I love the precision I can achieve with this brush. I should have known she would be on point with her tools. She is a sketch artist, so she has to be precise.
I love both of these so much, out of all of my contour palettes this one is by far my favorite (for now)....

you can grab your brush here on amazon    #affil

Here's a little vintage look I did while using it for contour!




So what do you think? What is your favorite contour palette?

  1. I have been considering getting this palette, since I don't own any contour palettes yet. Plus, I love Kat Von D's makeup line.
