Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette

Hello everyone!

I hope your Wednesday is going well so far. Today I'm reviewing the new Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour palette that I've had for a few weeks. I took advantage of the Sephora VIB sale back in April and snagged another palette. I truly am an eyeshadow palette lover hoarder!

The new Shade and Light Eye Contour palette is an all matte eyeshadow palette featuring a good mix of cool and warm tones. It literally has every neutral shade you could ever need! If I'm being honest, I was a little hesitant to try this Kat Von D palette because I've never really been impressed with the brand overall. I do love the tattoo liquid liner though! We all know that face contouring is all the rage right now and now it's becoming a thing for the eyes too. The concept of this palette is to help define the eye thus providing an enhanced look; similar to the effect we get when we contour our faces.

I was pleasantly surprised by the color selection, pigmentation and overall performance of each eyeshadow. I have been reaching for this a lot since I've gotten it and I really like incorporating it into my looks. I really don't need more neutral mattes but hey what's a few more?!

The Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour palette contains 12 matte eyeshadows. The top row of larger eyeshadows each contain 0.08 oz of product and the vertical eyeshadows each contain 0.04 oz. of product. I'd say the sizes are great and will last a while. It's currently available on for $46.

Let's take a look......

The exterior package is the traditional cardboard. The quality of it is very nice. It's definitely very Kat Von D!! 

All eyeshadow names are printed on the back

Laetus, samael, solas, lucius

lazarus, saleos, shax, liberatus

ludwin, succubus, sytry, latinus

The overall pigmentation is great. These matte eyeshadows feel really creamy and blend easily too. I would recommend this palette to anyone seeking an all matte eyeshadow palette or to anyone who needs good basic neutrals.

Here's a look I created using this palette. This "Smokey Mattes" full tutorial is up on my YouTube beauty channel- click here to watch.

I hope this review was helpful :)
