Editor's Review

Kat Von D Plum Shadow + Light Quad ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains four shades designed to work together and are named to help guide application--Base, Define, Contour, and Highlight--though you can obviously go wherever your creativity takes you. The Shade + Light Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have "high pigment" with a "silky and blendable" consistency and long-wearing. I think if you enjoyed Kat Von D's recent eyeshadow palettes, I think you'll like these; they are very soft and smooth with a finely-milled, velvety texture that can kick up an excess amount of powder any time something touches the pan's surface. I notice an abundance of fall out (surprisingly!) when working with the eyeshadows, but a very smooth base is critical to maximize adhesion to the skin without getting unevenness/darkening due to the looser nature of the powder paired with the more matte finishes. The lighter shades seem chalky on my skin tone and have strong white bases. The darkest shades blend better when mixed with one of the lighter shades rather than alone, and I actually tried blending them over primer to see if that helped, but it was marginally better--patience and multiple tools (clean brushes are key for blending these out), while the light and mid-tone shades were easy to blend out. The wear varied between seven and a half and eight hours for me, which is consistent with my past experiences using this formula.

This is a bit patchy and the cool toned purples make me look dead. I love purple but this is not really the best purple palette. Disappointed.

I find the formula of this extremely powdery and there is a lot of fallout, especially the lighter colours. I appreciate that the base colour is a much bigger pan and I really like the packaging but the shadows themselces are very dry and take some work to blend evenly. Not something I can pick up for a 5 minute look when I'm in a rush but if I take my time the colours do turn out beautifully. Worth mentioning that I have very dry skin so powdery formulas tend to cling to my eyelids in uneven patches, which this one is prone to.
