Make-up, Swatches

Product Revival – Kat Von D Palette in Beethoven

This is one of my favourite palettes but over the past six months or so it managed to escape use. This was mainly due to poor make-up organisation on my part.

After a big tidy earlier this month (check out said organisation vid) I rescued my dear old palette and decided to give it some well deserved love.

When I saw these True Love palettes in Sephora last year I wasn’t even aware that Kat Von D had a make-up range. When I saw the stand, I scoffed to myself, making all sorts of assumptions about the brand and products without trying them. Let’s face it, make-up ranges by celebrities are usually abysmal. I’m glad I decided to swatch them, I couldn’t have been more wrong.

 

I love all of the shades in this palette. In fact, one evening I managed to use every shade in one way or another in the one looks, sounds crazy but it’s all about careful placement.

Eight pigmented, professional quality shades for $34 (€25), that is such a great deal. I wish her make-up line was available in Europe, we deserve access to fun products like this too. Boo Hoo! I would be very irritated if she released some new products and I had no access to them!

I was look forward to checking out her new products from her Christmas 2010 collection whilst in the US last month but somehow I managed to walk right by the Kat Von D stand. Annoying.

I have another one of her palettes which has been completely neglected. Maybe it’s time I dug it out and gave it some love too. If I remember correctly though, it was not Beethoven!

Have you tried any of Kat Von D’s products?

    Gorgeous!! Love the colours! Look really pigmented, love to get my hands on some!!

    From what I can see Amazon.com sell Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes, that said I didn’t try to purchase them on the site, so I don’t know if it will kick you out at the delivery detail stage when you put Ireland in – it shouldn’t do but… as I said I’ve not tried it, but maybe worth a punt if you’re interested?
