Hey and welcome back! I hope you’re well. Years ago when Kat Von D’s makeup line was released, I had to try her products! The first product I picked up was her contour palette and it upgraded my makeup collection immensely. I found myself using this palette so much and I just picked up my second contour palette after finally getting through my first palette. So let’s talk about it!
First, Kat Von D is vegan and has made her products free from animal testing, parabens, etc which is always a huge plus for me and many others.
The palette comes with 6 shades. 3 light and 3 contour shades.
The light colors can be used as a highlight, a base for shadow, and/or brightener. The shades of the light side are from left to right: Levitation (light pink), Lyric(yellow tint) and Lucid (peachy tint)I really love using Lyric the most. It has a yellow tint that really gives my olive beige skin tone a nice bright look without any color.
The shades for the contour side range from Subconscious (muted grayish brown), Shadowplay ( reddish brown) and Sombre ( dark brown)
I have found myself using Subconscious the most because it just gives the illusion if shadow without the reddish or dark tone. I contour my face, nose and sometimes my jawline to really define my face. It has no reddish tone that I typically tend to get from brown shadows. This one is perfect for my skin tone.
The mirror in this palette is the perfect size. And I just love palette with a handy mirror in it in case I don’t have one around anywhere else.
The palette design itself is beautiful. It has such a whimsical gothic feel to it and it stunning to have around.
While the price for this palette isn’t the cheapest, I can say with utmost certainty that it is worth the money. This palette will last you such a long time and you can customize your own shade.
