Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.96 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features 24 eyeshadows designed to mimic a stained glass window.

First Impressions

Overall, the palette seemed consistent with past Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes (but not the Metal Crush formula, generally) with the mattes having a soft, lightly powdery texture with medium to opaque coverage. There were some matte shades that seemed prone to sheering out (like Scared Heart and Exodus) but haven’t had a chance to apply the majority of the shades in the palette so hard to know for sure but swatching showed such things (my arm is drier than my lid). The shimmers were pigmented with soft to moderately dense textures with a couple being creamier but stiffer, like Vestment, and I felt like these often appeared less shimmery/metallic on (again, like Vestment).

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #411

Happy Friday!

Each week, we share our beauty hauls, talk weekend plans and learn a little about each other.

Let's Chat!

Share your own answers in the comments!

  • Haul: Same as last week… just about all the holiday launches I’ve posted about, I’ve purchased something from!
  • Weekend plans: I have adult errands to run like going to the bank to deposit foreign checks (always a nightmare!) and retirement planning. I’m hoping to spend the rest of the day getting some reviews written and then Saturday will be a photo/swatch morning!
  • Are you ready for fall?: Fall is my favorite season, so… always… but being in Arizona now, with summers so hot (even though I find them tolerable since I’m inside so much), it will be a nice reprieve to fall below 100 degrees on average.

P.S. — Join us over in the official Temptalia chatroom on Discord! 🙂

Viseart Golden Hour Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a new palette that features nine shades in updated packaging with most of the exterior being rubberized and the cover being metallic.

First Impressions

The mattes were soft, blendable, and semi-opaque to opaque in a single layer with slight dustiness in the pan but nothing that seemed particularly concerning. They felt slightly firmer compared to some of Viseart’s other mattes but not significantly different. The shimmers were moderately dense and fairly pigmented, and they applied evenly to bare skin. There was nothing through swatching or applying (I’m writing this as I wear them, so I have nothing to report yet on wear) that was inconsistent with Viseart’s typical, high quality formula.

Tarte Mermaid Kisses Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick Set

Mermaid Kisses

Tarte Mermaid Kisses Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick Set ($23.00 for 0.14 oz.) contains four, miniature-sized lipsticks in new, limited edition shades. I liked the touch of each shade having a different colored tube, though the tubes themselves don’t indicate the actual color, so they are just aesthetically pleasing rather than functional.

The formula is supposed to be “long-wearing,” “full coverage,” and hydrating. While Margs was a bit disappointing, it was still quite pigmented and workable; the other shades were better overall: pigmennted, hydrating, and longer wearing.

Value

A full-sized Rainforest of the Sea Lipstick retails for $21.00 and contains 0.12 oz. of product or $175.00/oz. The set contains $24.50 worth of product, so there is a little more product than you’d get normally with the real value being in trying four shades for just a bit more than the cost of a single shade. All four shades are also exclusive to the set.
