Kat Von D Lolita Por Vida Palette

No comments :
I've had this palette since Christmas and keep forgetting to post a review. I figured now is as good a time as ever! This is seemingly the last "Kat Von D" palette, as Kat has cut ties with the company and it is now going to be known as KvD Vegan Beauty moving forward. I am hoping that the quality isn't going to take a hit, but I guess time will tell. For now, let's take a look at the Lolita Por Vida palette.
The packaging, as usual, is stunning. It's a very blush-themed palette - lots of pinks and rosy tones - so the packaging reflects that with a rosy pink color scheme. It is made of sturdy cardboard, has a big mirror inside the cover, and has a magnetic closure.
There are 18 shades inside, and a variety of finishes - there are 2 creams a pressed glitter, lots of mattes, and some metallic shades.
Preciosa is a shimmery cream.
Sonrisa is an apricot with a strong turquoise shift.
Muñeca is a matte dusty taupe.
Cruz is a bronzey shimmer.
Romantico is a shimmery amethyst.
Cariño is a matte eggplant.

La Lupe is a matte rusty orange.
Dulces Sueños is a metallic copper foil (cream).
Enamorada is a matte pale peach.
Reina is a brown, gold and copper pressed glitter.
Esperanza is a matte pale pink.
Luna is a metallic rose gold foil (cream).

Amorcito is a matte caramel brown.
Silvia is a matte cream.
Juanita is a matte deep purple brown.
Destino is shimmery cream with a pink shift.
Rosario is a metallic deep red.
Lolita Por Vida is a matte burgundy rose.

Now I'm not sure if this was meant to be the holiday palette or not (it's not HUGE like all the holiday palettes of past years!) but either way, it came out before the holidays and it does have more shades than her usual palettes in it, so I'm just going to keep thinking that this was the holiday palette for 2019. I know a lot of the previous holiday palettes had a LOT of disappointing shades in them pigmentation-wise, but I haven't found that to be the case with this one. If this is a sign of things to come, it will definitely keep me interested to see what new items are coming with the re-branding!

I am absolutely in love with the Luna cream shadow. As oily as my lids are, this applies beautifully and does not crease on me. The two cream shades are both INSANELY pigmented. I just hope that they aren't going to turn out like the creams that Kat's first few palettes had in them, where they dried out before I could even use a third of the pan, but these seem a lot smoother and creamier than those early versions. The pressed glitter is the only shade in here I don't see myself getting a lot of use out of. Other than that, the rest of it performs beautifully and it has been my go-to every day palette since I got it for Christmas! You can do super minimal and super dramatic looks with it, and I absolutely love that about it.
