Editor's Review

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour PaletteKat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette ($46.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows that are categorized into three "quads," divided between neutral, cool, and warm (supposedly, at least). The formula is described as "blendable and buildable" with "high-pigment, long-wear" that "[delivers] rich color."

For the majority of the palette, the eyeshadow formula is consistent: very soft, finely-milled to the point where the shades feel smooth and silky, but they can be powdery at times, which means that some shades aren't fully pigmented or may be prone to sheering out or turning patchy when blended. It's just the type of consistency that really benefits from a primer, as it creates a smoother canvas for the shades to blend on top of, and I find that it eliminates any blending issues. They wear well on bare skin, and they tended to build well when they weren't opaque in two to three layers. I think the palette leans warm, though there are a few cooler-toned shades in it (I categorized four as cool, eight as warm).

Transform your eyes through the art of contouring. After tapping into makeup pro secrets, Kat Von D created this first-of-its-kind eye shadow palette. It’s specially-designed for eye contouring, a groundbreaking technique once used only by beauty experts to define and enhance eyes. This palette features a gorgeous, versatile array of true contouring shades, arranged into three color quads—neutral, cool, and warm—to flatter every skintone. Three large base shadows are arranged above three coordinating powders for contouring, defining, and highlighting. The palette includes an easy-to-follow contouring guide with step-by-step instructions for creating three different eye-opening techniques. Each velvety powder is blendable and buildable, and it features Kat Von D’s signature high-pigment, long-wear eye shadow formula, created to deliver rich color that lasts all day and all night.

I bought this on a whim and was kicking myself at first thinking I have enough matte neutrals especially since I'm more into metallics and shimmers. This palette is so easy to use though. This is perfect for those days where you're not sure what you want to do or too tired to think. I don't normally use quads as laid out but the default quads in this set are perfect. Each of the default quads look great on me(fair/light complexion). This is the first time I've ever agreed with a quad and all three worked and blended together beautifully.

This palette is the easiest for an every day work look. The shadows blend easily and are buildable. Before this palette I basically considered only a wash of shadow for work because I didn't have time to blend and build before work. I love this palette soo much that I got one for my sister and her daughter. I have even convinced coworkers to try this palette. This palette is the palette that led me to Modern Renaissance.

I was very excited to get this palette. We don't have a Sephora around here, so I ordered from her website. I have medium-tan skin, and I was a bit disappointed that nothing but the black is really dark enough for the outer v of my eye. It supplied me with many crease colors, which I appreciate, but I do wish a true espresso brown had been included. The bottom left shade is the only shade suitable for a transition color for me. The colors blend well (with one exception, which I will get to) and are so very soft. Decently pigmented, but I do think Tarte and Lorac have more pigmented matte shades. They build very easily in the crease though, so you can deepen the colors well, with more product. I could do without 6 extremely light shades, but that isn't a criticism of the palette. I knew there would be that many prior to ordering. I use the lightest large pan shade to set my undereye concealer, the middle large pan for nose contouring and sometimes the pink large pan for blush. I do like that I get multiple uses out of those three. The black in this palette is really the only shade that I think is subpar. The others blend like a dream, but no matter what I do with shax, it is patchy. I generally avoid it aside from using it on the lower lashline and use blacks from other palettes to darken things. All in all, it is a pretty solid palette. Especially if you have lighter complexion or don't have a preference for dramatic eye looks, like I do. I bought it as a companion palette and I am happy with it for that, though as stated, I do wish it had one more very deep brown. These are VERY long lasting eyeshadows!
