Kat Von D Ladybird Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Ladybird Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.43 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows and one travel-sized eyeliner. All of the shades (including the eyeliner) are matte. The eyeshadows are supposed to be intensely pigmented, long-wearing and won’t crease, smudge, or fade. The eyeliner is also supposed to be long-wearing and should glide on easily.

Fur Elise is a subtly cool-toned, purpled burgundy with a matte finish. The texture was a smidgen dry, but it will perform better with a fluffier brush. theBalm Sexy is warmer, darker. theBalm Moderato is cooler-toned, darker. theBalm Alice Copper is more shimmery. bareMinerals Nightcap is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Vespertine is a warm-toned, light peach with a matte finish. It had a soft, buttery texture and rich color payoff. Urban Decay Foxy is yellower, less peach. NARS Night Star is slightly darker. bareMinerals Stealth is very comparable. See comparison swatches.

Renholder is a neutral-warm, gray-tinted, medium-dark brown with a matte finish. It seems a little too brown to be a true taupe. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and finely-milled without being powdery. theBalm Matt Gallagher is pinker. Urban Decay Wreckage is darker, more shimmery. Urban Decay Naked 2 is lighter. MAC Magical Mist is more shimmery. bareMinerals Namaste is darker, warmer. Bobbi Brown Slate is darker. Bobbi Brown Chino is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Siouxsie-sioux is a darkened, gray-black with a satin finish–it looks mostly matte applied, but there seemed to be a faint shimmer in the pan. It was nicely pigmented and had a good, soft and blendable texture. Urban Decay Spell #2 is more shimmery. theBalm Sexy Stacey is cooler-toned. MAC Tall, Dark, & Handsome is lighter. Estee Lauder Black Chrome #2 is lighter. Urban Decay Gunmetal is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Unrequited is a light-medium, muted, peach-orange with a matte finish. The color payoff was true-to-pan, and it had a soft, buttery feel. Urban Decay Moonflower is more shimmery, warmer. NARS Ramatuelle #3 is darker, warmer. MAC Tete-a-Tint is darker. MAC Bare Minimum is cooler, more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Terracotta is darker. See comparison swatches.

Harlow is a warm-toned, medium brown with a yellowish tone and a matte finish. It had good payoff, but the texture was slightly stiff so it is best applied with a fluffier brush. Bobbi Brown Praline is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani Moonlight Beige #2 is cooler. MAC Moleskin is slightly warmer. MAC Wedge is darker. theBalm Allegro is similar. theBalm Sultry is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Wolf is a dark, warm-toned brown with a matte finish. It had good color payoff overall, but it was slightly stiff to work with. Urban Decay Bewitch is more shimmery. NARS Surabaya #2 is more shimmery, warmer. MAC Swiss Chocolate is slightly warmer. Dior Fairy Golds #5 is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Pumped is warmer, more shimmery. Make Up For Ever #17 is warmer, lighter. Inglot #363 is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Cleopatra is a muted copper with hints of brown and a matte finish. It had great pigmentation, and it had a soft, buttery texture that applied evenly and smoothly. Guerlain Les Fauves #2 is darker. NARS Self Portrait 3 #2 is browner. MAC Body Conscious is lighter, more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Immortal Love is a dark, warm-toned brown with a matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single pass, and it was buildable to opaque color with a creamy, glide-on consistency. It lasted eight hours with some minor, but noticeable, fading. Make Up For Ever #25L is lighter. Bobbi Brown Chocolate is darker. Urban Decay Whiskey is lighter. Urban Decay Bourbon is warmer. MAC Seasonally Spicy is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches.

Overall, this was a good palette, and for a matte palette, definitely an exceptional one that I’ve come across.  It’s not too warm-toned, though I would say it leans slightly warm as most of the neutrals are warm-toned.  Fur Elise and Siouxsie-sioux were the cooler-toned shades and the non-neutrals as well.  When I tested the palette for wear, I was able to get eight hours of wear, and I started to see some minimal fading after nine hours.
