Kat Von D Bonnie + Clyde Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Bonnie + Clyde Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) features a cool-toned set of shades in a very light pink and a darker pink. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The texture of both shades left something to be desired as they were thin, chalky, and difficult to blend. The pigmentation is sheer and only buildable to semi-sheer after three to six layers of product. The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” These are some of the worst powders I’ve have ever tested from Kat Von D, and it’s a real disappointment–and a surprise–after the success of the Shade + Light palettes as well as her recent eyeshadows. Both shades lasted no longer than seven hours; not even in the realm of “full 24 hours of wear.”

Kat Von D Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent formula that features a light and dark blush in the same compact. Full reviews will be coming very shortly, but I highly recommend trying in-store prior to purchasing, as these were a complete and utter disappointment from wear time to texture to blendability. I have nothing positive to say about these. Even the packaging quality is a disappointment, as the pans are loose (two of mine came out entirely with smears of glue on the back, but all seven pans wobble) and all of the compacts were covered in blush powder upon arrival, though none were broken.

When I think about a go-to color for a bold, party look, I always think red. I’m curious to know what your go-to color is when you think about it!
