Pastel Goth

Kat Von D Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes eight matte eyeshadows with six pops of color and then a dark gray and stark white. The formula felt very velvety, finely-milled, and was blendable on the skin, but each shade had a fair amount of excessive powder that kicked up in the pan. The strange thing was that there was little fallout; I used seven of the eight shades in the look demoed above, and I didn’t have to cleanup at all underneath the eye. The pigmentation was decent to good, but I did find it worked best patted on, rather than swept on, for best results.

There was more substance to the formula, so they did not sheer out as easily as I would have expected given the dustiness of the texture, and so they adhered better and went on more smoothly to bare skin (I actually felt they worked better over bare lids or regular primer and not as well over a lightly tacky cream base, like NYX Milk). The pigmentation was mostly opaque with a couple of exceptions. Two of the eight shades–Dagger and Dope–were ones that I didn’t feel blended out like the others. I had particular issues with Dope, as it darkened and lightened on its own accord, so it never looked seamless, and it did this over bare skin as well as over a cream base. The one prevailing issue I had with all the shades was that they were more prone to fading than the average eyeshadow.

I was pleasantly surprised by the palette, as it’s rare to find more pastel shades that actually perform decently, but I found the palette pretty easy to use, and if paired with primer, it was both easy to use and lasted for most of the day (it did seem to fade faster, even over primer, than most, but a good primer would still extend the wear to 10+ hours for me).

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) contains four shades that can be used on the eyes, lips, or face and are designed to be used over other products as transformers. The formula is supposed to be pigmented. Three of the four shades have real shifts, so depending on the viewing angle, can appear more like one color or another distinct color. One shade was more iridescent in its effect.

The texture of the formula was dustier, a little drier to the touch, and I found they layered best over still-drying cream products or shimmery eyeshadows but did not work well over a dried, matte cream eyeshadow. The dustier formula made them very blendable as a cheek highlighter, though, and of all the ways I tried the product, they were easiest and had the most noticeable shift applied as highlighters, whether alone or layered over another cheek color. They layered best over matte and satin finish lip products, as they seemed to get absorbed and muted by more emollient formulas.

The pan size is that of a standard eyeshadow (MAC, Urban Decay, Anastasia, etc.), but there is good spacing between each shade to use them as cheek highlighters as well. The palette itself is unusually shaped, and that extra space means that it seems unnecessarily large, though I felt like the whole palette ended up being rather small.
