One brand I love the design of almost everything they come out with but never actually end up purchasing anything from them is Kat Von D. Not because I didn’t think the products were worth the price, but just because I don’t really shop at Sephora. It’s not near me and if I’m going to shop online for makeup it’s either Jeffree Star Cosmetics to get another Velour liquid lipstick, ColourPop, or Ulta because I know I get reward points that I can use for future purchases. Which Sephora doesn’t have in the same way. But I saw on Kat Von D’s website that they were doing a sale that for every $75 purchase you would get three full sized studded lipsticks. So I decided to get two products that then allowed me to get the lipsticks. One of them I’ve already reviewed in the past as I borrowed it from my roommate, the Alchemist Holographic Palette, and the Shade + Light contour palette. I’ll do a review later on this month on the three studded lipsticks that I got from this purchase as I really want to do a dedicated post for that.
About the Palette
You can either get this palette as a refillable one for $49 or just regular for $42. I have had another contour palette from NYX for over a year and still have yet to make a serious dent or hit pan so I did not opt for the refillable one as I will probably never hit pan. Or if I do manage to somehow hit pan, something new will probably come out that I will probably end up using. But I don’t know what my makeup preferences in the future will be, so why worry about it?

The shades in this palette are perfect for contouring my face and I love mixing the shades. I don’t have to build them up that much to get the right pigment for my skin tone. The shades are really easy to blend out though for some reason when I first tried it my lower jaw gave me a bit of a challenge. But I also put way too much on. Overall, I really enjoy this palette and will continue to use it in the future.
