The Kat Von D Shade + Light craze continues with two new additions to the sculpting and shaping collection—one for eyes and one for the face. The palettes put a little twist on two of Kat Von D’s current best-sellers and they are already proving to be incredibly popular.
The shades are grouped into neutral, cool and warm quads and have some of the most incredibly rich colour payoff I’ve ever seen. Most of the swatches below were done with just one or two finger swipes! I love the variety of shades and textures and I think this palette complements the original one perfectly. Next, I’d love to see one palette with mixed textures!
The Shade + Light Crème Contour Palette ($49) offers the same six highlight and contour shades from the original palette (which is one of the best-selling contour palettes ever), just this time in a cream texture.
I wasn’t ever a huge fan of cream contour, I just found powder to be a little more subtle and foolproof, but this palette has totally changed my mind. A little goes a long way and having a selection of undertones and depths make for an excellent palette for the pros—not to mention the fact the individual shades are refillable.
The creams blend effortlessly into the skin and look incredibly natural. It might be a little harder to justify if you’re only using it on yourself though, especially since cream textures will go off much quicker than powders.
If you’re a fan of the original palettes or you are more into shimmery shadows and creamy contours, then you’re going to love these ones.
Keep it up, Kat!
The Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette and Shade + Light Crème Contour Palette both retail for $49 each and are available at Sephora stores and online at sephora.com.shop this story
