Well crap, a day late again. I have a good reason this time. I wanted to do one more look with this palette before I posted the review showing some versatility, I also slept super late and in trying to get back on a day schedule.
In today’s post, we are gonna talk about all the details on the Kat Von D Lolita Eyeshadow Palette.
As you probably already know, the Lolita Palette is pulling inspiration from KVD’s best selling lipstick of that same name. Last year she released a single shadow in the warm chestnut rose shade and this time she has expanded the Lolita range into a whole palette. In this collection, there is also a Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick and a Matte Inkwell Liner, both of which are on my shopping list. (maybe they will go on sale)
I picked this palette up the day after it launched because the shades called to me. These are my favorite colors to wear on a day to day basis, rose, mauve, and purples. Confession, I don’t actually own the Lolita Studded Kiss Lipstick. Just never got around to picking it up because I have shades that look just like it in other brands. Nyx Liquid Suede in Soft Spoken being a great dupe and my favorite lip color. Hmm, maybe I need to get Lolita. I wish I could have gotten the PR package for this launch because it was stunning and I am really wishing I had the Lolita Obsession Vault. Makeup FOMO.
Anyway, let’s get into the shades, formula, pigmentation and all the details on this little guy.
First of all, like with all of Kat’s makeup you can see how much attention to detail there is in the packaging. It’s beautifully done.
Inside you have 8 matte eyeshadows arranged light to dark. I believe Kat said this was meant to be like an updated Shade + Light Eyeshadow Palette with new tones. Beyond it being matte, I don’t get that feeling really.
The formula and quality is probably the best I have used from KVD Beauty. They have definitely stepped up their game. The shades are buttery smooth, blend like an absolute dream with minimal effort and are surprisingly pigmented. You look at this palette and don’t think pigmentation but no, it is very much so pigmented. The shades all come out a little deeper on application than they appear. They also look a bit washed out in my photos.
Promesa is a pale pink with cool undertones.
Besitos is a dusty rose with a cooler undertone.
Recuerdos is described as a raisin.
Hermosura is a cool toned rose shade.
Described as a terra cotta rose. A bit deeper and browner than Lolita.
The palettes namesake, described as a chestnut rose.
Described as plum, but more of a deep berry to me.
Eterno is a blackened eggplant. This shade can read almost black.
All these shade perform beautifully and play well together. I adore this palette for day to day as well as for evening looks. You can pull in shimmer shades or metallics to amp it up as well. It’s just a good basic palette, and if you enjoy these tones I would highly recommend it. I have used it almost every day since getting my claws on it. The shades work together so well that you don’t really have to think about what color goes with what, they just flow and blend.
The Kat Von D Lolita Eyeshadow Palette retails for $39 and can be found at Sephora and Katvondbeauty.com
I want to show you some of the various looks I have done with this palette. For some I used just this palette alone, others I added a pop of shimmer with my highlighter or pulled in a glitter.
This first look was one I did for NYE and I have a tutorial on how I did it here: Get the Look | NYE Glam
