Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette $46.00
This palette is basically 3 quads of matte shadows that are packaged together. Each of these quads has a base shade, a contour shade, a define, and a highlight shade. The quads are considered Neutral, Cool and Warm. I’ve read of people comparing this to Naked Palette by Urban Decay. I love the Naked Palettes, but this is totally different. This Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette is all matte. Some of the shadow’s are a bit powdery. So apply your eye makeup before applying the rest of your makeup. This will allow you to cleanup under the eye if needed without disturbing your foundation, etc… I would also suggest using an eye shadow primer underneath the shadows for the smoothest, best results. I wrote about my favorite eye primer here.
I will say the instructions in the box are really easy to understand and follow. It has a “paint by number” concept. So if you don’t usually wear a lot of eye shadow use the instructions to help you play with application. Then you can absolutely play with other combinations including your other shadows into the mix.
