|Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Palette|
The Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Palette is one of those palettes that I bought, tried and put it away. Initially, when I tried this palette I wasn't that inspired by it. I saw the 3 quads, but couldn't really see beyond those quads. I didn't feel that inspired by this palette. To be honest, I don't wear all matte looks because I prefer a shimmery lid. When it comes to putting together an all matte look, I'm not good at it. I feel like I have my technique down when it comes to matte crease and shimmery lid, but an all matte look starts to worry me. I do think it's something I would like to work on more. It might make me appreciate this palette more than I do. At this time, I use it more as a complimentary palette.
This month I pulled this palette out, and made myself use it. I didn't create any all matte looks but I forced myself to get more comfortable using this palette. The shadows are very pigmented but it blends easily. I stay more in the warm quad, but I played around with the neutral quad too. That cooler toned quad in the middle, I don't know what to do with it. I can't think of a look I would like. The black is BLACK! I really like to use it to cover my lash glue when I apply fake lashes or as liner.
I need to start challenging myself with palettes that I don't use that often. This palette was a great example because I feel much more comfortable with it after using it for a month. Kat Von D has the Shade and Light Glimmer palette but I don't plan on purchasing it. I've heard it can be hard to work with, and I'm not about that life. I can't tell you how many times i'm interrupted as I do my makeup in the morning. Having a 3 year old is all about negotiations and our mornings are interesting...
Do you have this palette? Is it a favorite? I will say it's not a favorite of mine but I'm happy that I have it. It's great to have matte palettes in your collection. For September, I'm going to challenge myself with my Modern Renaissance palette. Another palette I should be using alot more.
