Oh gosh, this is SO PRETTY!!!!! It has such a good mix of mattes and shimmers (a little bit of fallout?) that this would be perfect as an every day pallette.

Killing jar is something that exists in entomology, so it’s not like she pulled it out of her ass considering it’s the theme of the palette.

I am aware of that. It’s also the name used for the jar method of euthanizing insects. So no, she didn’t pull it out of her ass. My comment was intended to indicate that it has a rather negative flavor to it when used in something that’s supposed to be about beauty. So thank you for the attempt to educate. My comment still stands.

Killing jars are used to capture and kill insects (very commonly, butterflies) with minimal harm otherwise, for studying/scientific purposes. It actually is a clever name for this specific palette.

This is a neutral-ish palette I actually really want! Too bad I’m on a makeup buying freeze πŸ™

For what it is and its intention, swatches look good. I will be passing because they all seem to be in very dupeable shades.

Some of these shades look so desirable – Disintegration, Delaney, Papilio. But the name “Killing Jar”??? UGH! When I used to teach elementary school, my students raised Monarchs from their caterpillar stage and released them when they hatched out. I remember how sad the kids would be about those who didn’t make it through one of the stages and so “Killing Jar” just makes me feel sad since the Monarch is such an amazing and mysterious creature.

It’s most like a reference to Siouxsie & the Banshees, but after reading your interpretation, I can see it probably wasn’t the best choice in this particular set of palettes…

That’s one hell of a negative song…from what I remember. Isn’t it about heroin but it uses the metaphor of the “killing jar” entomologists use to trap butterflies? The song is great, in my opinion…but killing butterflies…that I can’t handle! πŸ˜‰

Yeah, not the best choice, totally XD Since there are so many people who have never heard SATB. The names seem more morbid than they are. I wasn’t sure if Killing Jar was Siouxsie related, then I saw tiny death (melt!)

Probably all so dupe-able in my stash but MAN, do I love Delaney, Vanish and Disintegration!! Can I really justify the whole palette for those 3? LOL!!!

…Just saw the shade names…Killing Jar? There’s no way I could purchase this after reading that name. That’s really disturbing.

I went to Srphora on Monday and I sat and swatches each shade from both palettes. I really loved the Chrysalis, but I ended hup purchasing this one because it was more practical for me. The shades wear well with my primer base and lasted for an entire 10 hour shift!

Such a pretty set of colours! Too warm for me, but that doesn’t really matter – they look beautiful on you in these swatches, Christine! Can’t wait to see the full review.

I live in Switzerland and would looove to order some Kat von D. stuff.
I know quite a lot “US-online-makeup-shops” but none of them sells KVD.
Do you or anyone else reading this know where I can buy KVD? ο»Ώ

PS: Sephora.com does not ship outside the US.
There are Sephora France and Sephora Italy which do ship to Switzerland, but unfortunately they don’t sell Kat Von D.ο»Ώ

Oh, thank you, I didn’t know they were shipping internationally!
I’ve just looked it up and was about to order…but obviously they ship only to GB, Canada, Japan and South Korea.
I really think Kat von D. needs to rethink her distribution…
xoxoxo

I got this palette a few days ago. The shadows seemed to be a bit softer and creamier in the store demo, but they are still very buttery as it is. I have used this palette for the past three days, and I must say that the colors might be too soft! (Odd, i know!) There’s not a great amount of fall out or anything, I just find the shimmery shades to crease relatively fast on me.

Maybe I just packed too much onto my brush?

I just came from Sephora and searched the entire palette. The online photos/YouTube Vids do not do this justice. These colours are bloody gorgeous up close and personal. Super pigmented and soft. This is on my “must haves” list. If I hadn’t have already purchase another Kat Von D palette I would not have hesitated to pick it up. Next time.

I’m warm toned, and I’ve been told warm tones suit me better (kind of obvious), but this set of palettes is a perfect example of why I don’t like being warm toned πŸ™ warm palettes are BO-RING!

Hi Christine! Are these new palettes permanent? Cause if it is, ill prolly save up to have them, but if not, o boy! So help me… XD

Hey Christine, which palette do you recommend more? This one or the too faced chocolate bar palette? I can’t decide! I have green eyes, pale skin and dark red hair if that helps:)

Christine I was just sitting here waiting for you review while the palette sold out on sephora! Now what? πŸ™ I don’t know if it will come back on not πŸ™
