Kat Von D Vegan Love Eyeshadow Palette

1 comment :
The Kat Von D Vegan Love Palette is the latest from Kat Von D Beauty. This is an all-shimmer, no matte palette with a mix of neutrals and bright pops of color.
The mirror on the inside is a fun heart shape. A sticker comes on the inside that alerts you that the shadows are best applied with your fingers.
There are 10 shades in the palette and, as I mentioned, none of them are matte. That's not a total deal breaker for me, as I don't mind grabbing a single shadow or another palette to work with, but I very rarely do an all-shimmer look (or an all-matte look for that matter). 
Compassion is a light gold.
Activist is a bright yellow.
Sentient is an orangey copper.
Species is a medium brown.
Liberation is a black with gold glitter.
Earthling is a bright green.
Empathy is a pearlescent purple with blue duochrome.
Sanctuary is a cornflower blue.
Equality is a golden peachy champagne.
Mercy is a pinkish-red.

When they say to apply it with your fingers for best results, that's definitely right. But I have found that with some trial and error, some brushes definitely work well with the colors. Flat shader brushes will not work well at all - they just don't pick up the pigment. These shadows have both fractionated coconut oil AND dimethicone in them (both binding agents), which makes them super compressed in the pan. I tend to use my finger to apply my lid shade, but I will use a fluffy shader brush to put one of the brighter colors on the outer half of my lids. That seems to work really well, and I have actually been using this palette quite a bit. I noticed that it has pretty bad reviews on Sephora's site, but I'm wondering if that's mainly coming from people not giving it a chance and playing around with it. The shades are definitely pigmented, and I'm happier with this palette than I've been with a Kat Von D palette in a while!!
