Hey lovelees❤️ I was excited to get my hands on this new release about a week early! My local Sephora had this in stock about a week ago and I knew I had to grab it. I loved the first Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette so when I found out she was coming out with an all shimmer palette I was excited. To see my thoughts and swatches on the Kat Von D Shade and Light Glimmer Palette keep reading.
First, let’s talk about packaging, the outside box has gold reflective lettering. The actual cover of the palette is slim but feels sturdy, it has a magnetic closure which I personally prefer.
This palette contains 3 larger satin shades and 9 shimmer shades which can be used alone or as toppers.
Honestly, when I saw this palette I wanted to love it! I love Kat Von D’s eyeshadows but this palette fell a little short for me. I am unable to create a full look with this palette and that bothers me. I kind of knew that was going to be an issue but I wanted to try it out for myself. Some of the shades in this palette look very similar from one another like the brown tones and white shimmer shades. The shade range definitely leans more towards the cooler side. The pigmentation is nice and they blend well but some shades I had to work with more than others because of the chunks of glitter in them. This is almost the same exact palette as the first Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette just in a different finish. I prefer the original palette if I had to choose. This palette will be good for someone who doesn’t mind grabbing another eye palette to create a whole look. I really wanted to love this palette but I think they’re other palettes in stores that are worth the money.
