Kat Von D Holiday 2010

If you have been reading my blog or watching my You Tube videos for a long time you may have heard me chatting about Kat Von D’s make-up range. I picked up 2 of the eyeshadow palettes whilst in Chicago last December. Well I loved the palettes. I even recorded a video tutorial or two using the palette as inspiration.

I was happy to hear that Kat has launched another Christmas/Holiday Collection for 2010. Here is a little look…

Kat Von D Tattoo Chronicles Palette Volume 1

 

Kat Von D Adora Collection 1


Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick Set

Personally I love the look of the lipstick set. The eyeshadows are not unlike shadows in my collection so it would be silly to buy these…in theory :) I like the quality of the eye palettes I have tried so far, although one is slightly better quality than the other. I had really low expectation since it’s a celebrity line but I was delighted to be so wrong.

Unfortunately the Kat Von D line is only available in Sephora. I might be heading across the Atlantic closer to Christmas, if I do I’ll be stopping to have a look.

Have you tried any of the Kat Von D line?

Kat Von D Sinner EDT

As you all probably know by now I am a wee bit of a perfume addict. I mentioned in my ‘Favourite Perfumes’ video that I often buy rich, sultry fragrances and then never wear them because they are too strong.

I am happy to report that I found myself a sexy night time fragrance that isn’t too strong and doesn’t make me feel nauseous! Enter Kat Von D Sinner. It’s such a sexy scent.

‘Light, delicate top notes of orange blossom, refreshing mandarin, and fleshy plum create a provocative, sultry heart. Rich jasmine blends seamlessly with a white-flower bouquet, beautifully tainted by the spicy warmth of cinnamon, an herb associated with ancient rituals of pleasure. A dark, mysterious back of earthy vetiver, patchouli, and woods enveloped in creamy vanilla and sensual musk lingers on the skin’.

I love the sales spiel :) The only problem is that it doesn’t last that long on my skin, but I like it so much I don’t mind reapplying.

Sinner is available at Sephora only for $55.

What’s your favourite fragrance for night time?

Sephora: Kat Von D Palette

katvondnew

Well ladies, I have to admit that until today I was a Sephora virgin. I had my very first experience today. Let me tell ya, I’m very glad we don’t have one Ireland because I would be poor!

I bought a few goodies, thanks to everyone who recommended products. And on with the yapping…

kat von dThe first thing I put in my basket was a Kat Von D eye-shadow palette. I haven’t heard a whisper about these.

I know there are probably oodles of reviews on YT but I didn’t have time to check :) I chose the Beethoven one, the other palettes were lovely but I already owned similar shades. And here it is…

I haven’t a clue what to expect from these shadows. Have you tried them?

I was feeling brave when I chose it since I often stick to neutrals. But this morning when I was doing my make-up I decided to go with the blue and navy shades from the Barbie Loves Stila Palette, very brave :) It looks quite soft and pretty though so I’m a happy girl.

I’ll post swatches of the shadows tomorrow. I will also post a photo of me wearing some of the shadows just for the heck of it! And of course I will share the rest of my make-up and beauty buys.

Is there anything else I need to get in Sephora?

I hope you’re all having a great weekend
