Kat Von D Shade And Light Eye Palette

One brand I am loving is Kat Von D and I've only really tried the lip products. I thought they were amazing, so I thought I would check out her eye products too. Kat Von D offers a range of eyeshadows and palettes, one of them being the Shade And Light Eye Palette.

For those of you on Instagram you may be familiar with what went on between Kat Von D and the brand Makeup Revolution. Makeup Revolution is a budget brand that make quite good items and try to dupe higher end ones. Makeup Revolution decided to create their own version of this palette which looks like a straight up copy. This didn't go unnoticed by Kat Von D.

This palette has 12 matte colors in all neutral shades. The colors are separated off into three different color groups allowing you to create a different look with each one. There are no rules in makeup, so you are free to blend them, wear them alone or mix and match the color combinations.




I love creating dramatic looks and this palette is perfect for creating them. I liked to wear the colors together to create one unique look. The paler colors made really good base and highlighter colors. Matte eyeshadows can be drying, but these ones seem to be very good and are not powdery or at all dry. I really don't like eyeshadows that have a powdery texture. They also did a good job of blending together too. Once on they didn't crease or fade and stayed on all day.

My favorite look out of the three was the middle one as I love a matte white color for highlighting. Plus the black is lovely and intense.

  2. That makeup pallet looks perfect. Great dramatic looks, but I think I would prefer to use if to create a softer one.

    1. I can understand dupes and taking inspiratrtion, but it was obvious that MUR's was just a copy. They copied Ben Nye's Banana Powder too, even called it exactly the same name too x

    1. It's amazing. Don't get the Makeup Revolution one even though it is a lot cheaper. I wouldn't buy their palette on principal as they didn't just dupe it, they made a straight up copy. Even called it Light And Shade. Was obvious they copied it x

  25. I've never tried the Kat Von D range, but I love the colors of the palette you chose!
