Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette Review
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you might have noticed that Kat Von D Beauty has finally launched here in the UK at Debenhams! You may have seen back in May that I was somewhat enamored with her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, thanks to my Mum and Dad picking them up for me on their travels, but now a much wider range is available right here on British soil.
As my dry eyes are still preventing me from tolerating any kind of eye makeup and my lipstick collection couldn't get much bigger if it tried, I decided to treat myself to a face product instead. I wasn't sure I'd get the match right for the Lock It foundation if I ordered over the web, so instead I treated myself to the Shade and Light Contour Palette while lounging on a sunbed in Turkey. At £36.99 it's probably the most money I've ever spend on something like this, but I've been using it every day so I think that's worth it.
It arrived the day after we got home and it's safe to say this is a game changer. There are six powder shades in total, three to highlight and three to bronze and contour. While you could of course just stick to the highlight and contour that best suit your skintone, I found I'm able to switch between shades depending on how strong I want my contour to look or how bronzed I'd like to be. There's a good mix of cool and warm tones here.
If you've never really used a sculpting palette before (even I'm a bit of a noob at it), then don't be put off - there's a handy diagram to help you apply the powders if you have no idea what to do! As someone with oily skin I was worried that the powder might disintegrate and slight off as so many often to for me as the day wears on, but I'm pleased to say that this stuff not only blends like a dream but stays on really well.
All in all I'm chuffed with this purchase and it's been a great investment into my daily routine, as well as allowing me to create some stronger looks for nights out etc.
Have you tried any of the Kat Von D products yet? What did you think?
