Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette Review + Swatches

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette

Hello everyone!

I have had this palette for over a year so I think it’s about time I did a review on it! It’s also good to note that this picture was taken months ago and it certainly doesn’t look like this now – I’ve panned two shades!

I bought this palette when I completely panned my YoungBlood Cosmetics one – click here to see my review on that. That contour kit was amazing so I didn’t know if this could top it to be honest. However, I feel like they are very similar consistency wise and the shades are not too different either.

The formula is extremely pigmented, buttery soft, blend-able and lasts really well on oily complexions without separating throughout the day. The shades are also very complimentary for many skin tones – For my neutral fair skin tone I can use all but the two on the far right (levitation and subconscious). However, these are so pigmented that you can easily use the shades that don’t work for you as eye shadows.

I have nothing bad to say about these powders; but I will point out that even though the packaging is gorgeous it is on the bulky side so definitely not travel friendly!

What do you think about this contour palette? Is there one you’d recommend?

Kat Von D Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer Review + Swatch

Kat Von D Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer

Welcome back everyone!

I have tried this primer out a few times and thought I would quickly put a review out there since this primer is only $4 CAD at Winners (or $18 at Sephora) at the moment so if your interested I would grab one quick.

First off I like how this primer comes in a stick form because it doesn’t require dipping your finger in a jar (and getting product under your nail). You just glide this on your eye and tap it in with your finger – and I recommend that you do one eye at a time and move quickly because this product literally dries down in less than 5 seconds which is a bit nerve-wrecking. However, once it’s on there it isn’t going anywhere and your eyeshadow will literally last the entire day without question.

Another thing that’s good to know with this shadow primer is that it’s a bit of a dry formula so it works best on oily eyelids – my eyelids aren’t oily (shocker, I know because everywhere else is) so I have to load up on a good eye cream before using this. Would I recommend this? Yes – if you find it for $4 I would definitely recommend that you try it out because if it does work for you, it’s a nice product. For U.S. residents I believe the Winners equivalent is TJ Maxx and/or Marshalls if I’m not mistaken.

Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade and #70 Brow Brush Review

Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade

Hi everyone!

I have been testing out a new brow pomade that recently launched at Sephora! Before I begin my review I want you to know that this was my first time using a proper brow pomade – I tend to stick with pencils and powders on an everyday basis.

Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade #70 Pomade Brow Brush

First off, the packaging is gorgeous! Love the raised brand logo on the lid and the lid color almost matches the shade inside. The first time I applied this pomade I felt that it looked way too intense for my liking. However, now that I have played around with it a few times I know how to apply it so that it isn’t too harsh. I start off taking the tiniest amount of product (this is super pigmented) and shape out my brows starting from the bottom. I then take the remaining product and sort of diffuse the harsh line to blend into my brows. I avoid the front of my brows all together or after most of the product is on my brows I will flick the remaining 5% of product that is on the brush to mimic little hairs at the front of my brows. Honestly, the more I practiced the more I got the hang of using it and making it look much more subtle.

The shade medium brown is a nice neutral shade; I do tend to prefer more ashy/taupe shades but this wasn’t warm and I ended up liking the final look. I would definitely recommend that you drop in at Sephora to check out the shades before ordering. Also keep in mind to go a bit lighter that your hair color if your a brunette since this stuff is pigmented it can quickly get to be too much.

This product is really well made; once applied it isn’t going to go anywhere unless you rub your eyebrows extremely hard – then it may fade a bit. I would definitely agree with it’s claim of this product being very long lasting.

Lastly, the #70 Pomade Brow Brush is really nice for applying this pomade or any pomade for that matter. You can create really thin lines with it however, I wish it was a bit smaller – just find that I need to be super careful when I’m going over my brow arch as the brush is a bit big.
