Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches!

No comments :
Now that I've reviewed Monarch, it's time for the cool-toned palette! This one is called the Chrysalis palette and is absolutely stunning.

The shade names are all on the back of the palette. I personally prefer when eyeshadow names are on the inside near the colors themselves, but at least they're on there somewhere!
You also get a large mirror inside (seriously, these palettes are huge compared to her past ones)
The layout is the same as it is in the Monarch palette - 3 base shades across the top that have .095 oz. of product, and 9 eyeshadows that have .049 oz. of product.
The palette is made of cardboard but is HEAVY. It's very sturdy and has a magnetic closure. It definitely reminds me of the first Naked palette, but has much more weight to it.

Ready for swatches?!

Lifelike is a matte light cream. This one is extremely pigmented and soft, and easy to work with!

Lunar Lights is a pearl gray (almost white!)

Lucid is a matte pale pink with silver glitter in it. Out of all the shades it's the only one that doesn't pack much of a punch pigmentation-wise.

Hybrid Moments, Mezzanine, Transition:
Hybrid Moments is a matte deep plum. This one can apply patchy, just needs some extra TLC.
Mezzanine is a shimmery violet. One of my favorites!
Transition is a pearl rosey-mauve. I really love this shade.

Glasswing, Melancholia, and Black Milk:
Glasswing is a matte caramel shade.
Melancholia is a pearly silver - it's not bright aluminum-foil looking silver, but a more toned down version.
Black Milk is a matte light gray and I have to say this is a super unique shade to my collection. I always get excited about matte grays because I feel like you don't see them much!

Graphic Nature, Entombed, Tornay:
Graphic Nature is a pearl charcoal. This is another shade that swatches darker than it looks in the pan.
Entombed is a pearl medium blue. I always love Kat Von D blues!
Tornay is a matte, almost black navy blue. This one can be patchy, again it's a shade that needs some TLC.

This is another palette that I highly enjoy. I think it is my favorite out of the 2 butterfly palettes, even though a couple of the matte shades in this one can be patchy. The thing with those is, as long as you build them up they perform fine. I did all these swatches with one swipe of my finger on bare skin so I think they performed pretty well!! I hope this review was helpful - to keep up with my posts, remember to follow me on Bloglovin'!
