  1. I wasn’t planning on getting this at all but those swatches! I might just cave and buy it. Sorry bank account :( haha.

  2. Rachael

    I’m surprised by how much I like this palette!

  3. Gorgeous colors !! Can’t wait to purchase It

  4. I’m a sucker for palettes! The colors look gorgeous! Can’t wait to see your review!

  5. I was under the impression Kat Von D products aren’t very good quality, but these swatches seem pretty solid. Not a big fan of hers (and butterflies are a little played out), and I’m still playing with the Electric Palette and Too Faced A La Mode eyes, so I won’t be purchasing this.

    Lunar Lights looks very pretty though!

      I can’t say anything about the other products in the line, but the powder eyeshadows have always been rather good! Some of the old palettes had, like, one cream shadow in them, which was an awful design, though.

  6. Also, is this why there is a butterfly on the Sephora logo on sephora.com today?

  7. Can’t wait for your review! I have several of her palettes and am super curious about this one. The shades in it are gorgeous!

  8. Okay – this palette looks amazing!!

    It was love at first sight when I saw the Chrysalis palette. And then I decided to get the Monarch palette, too. Both arrived yesterday and although I haven’t had a chance to wear either, they are more lovely in person than any photos I’ve seen. If there are up to the usual quality of Kat von D eyeshadows, it will have been worth every penny!

  10. Pretty shades! Though not really convinced abt tis one!

  11. I just knew I would love this.. trying to say ‘no’.. I really do not need more eyeshadow..

  12. Although I’ll probably pass on this one, I’m eager to read your review when it comes out. There aren’t all that many cool tone palettes out there. This has shades I don’t own and don’t normally wear, and your swatches make it look more appealing than I thought it would be!

    Glasswing and Melancholia are not very cool to my eye, but at least this palette isn’t quite on the level on MAC’s “cool-toned” neutral palette from awhile back. 9_9 Too many dark shades for me to really get use out of it, but it looks like a lovely palette. :)

    Wow! Such a lovely palette !!!!!!
    I learned to appreciate Kat Von D thanks to U (I got ‘Ladybird True Romance’ Palette because I see your review and love it!)
    So glad matte shades have a color payoff! Love ‘Glassing’ (a stunning shade to crease).
    Melancholia is so rich!
    Loved also Graphic Nature. I’m a succer for dramatic eye looks, so I’ll do a gray smokey eyes with it.
    I’m sad because Hybrid Moments was fairly pigmented.
    Overall: SEPHORA, wait me !!!!!!!!!!!

    Overall this looks decent in shade variety and pigmentation (I love the quality of my Momento Mori palette) but Hybrid Moments, Mezzanine and Tornay – I’m a bit suspicious of, by the looks of the swatches…..I could be wrong….**still squinting suspiciously**

  17. I’m not usually drawn to palettes, but this looks positively gorgeous! I love how cool toned it leans. It can be so hard to find flattering and interesting cool toned palettes, which is probably why I’m not usually drawn to them!

    I cannot wait to purchase this palette. It looks yummy

  19. After looking at the preview swatches of this one and the Monarch palette, I feel like the quality on this one looks considerably less. I find that’s often the case with cooler versus warmer palettes: the cooler shades seem harder to do really well, whereas every brand seems to be able to produce bronze and gold shades that are incredible, but blues and purples seem much more challenging.

  20. Entombed! Melancholia! Transition! Oh my! :-D

    This palette has some seriously gorgeous shades in it – and a blue eyeshadow that looks promisingly pigmented! Can’t wait to hear your full thought on this, as always.

  21. Again, more dupable colors in stunning packaging. No, thank you. I enjoyed looking! :)

  22. I like this more over the warmer one.. the colors look pretty pigmented.. :)

  23. Need this palette, palette is too gorgeous X_x

    Love this!!! So much more cool-toned compared to Monarchy. I have yellow undertones so warm colors look so muck and muddy on me esp the Naked 3 palette :( What doesn’t help is that I have hazel eyes too and warm colors look so nice with hazel eyes! Can you recommend any purple-shades eyeshadow palette? Looks like i might try this one!

  25. I need this in my life!

  26. What a great palette! It’s got some warmer shades and cooler shades but everything here seems pretty universally wearable!
