Today I’ll tell you about the Kat Von D products. I had to try them out before I could give you my opinion on them. First off, I’m amazed by the quality of the products, the packaging rocks, and Kat did an amazing job creating all these things. I haven’t tried everything from her line but I’ll give you a review of the things I did try. Before we start I have to mention that her products are cruelty free.
|Shade + Light Contour Kit with Kat’s signature… I literally died 🙂|
Shade + Light Contour palette – I looove it because it’s so creamy and pigmented that you don’t have to dig into the product in order to achieve the effect you wanna have. On the contrary, you gotta have a light hand and build up the contour. Compared to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour palette, I would say it’s a litte bit on the cooler side and has darker shades. The only shade I’m a bit confused about or can’t really use is the one on the top right which is a bit too orange for me. The Anastasia Kit is a bit inconsistent when it comes to pigmentation (I would say), so if I have to chose between those two, I’d definitely go for the Kat Von D one. The best the way to apply it is her Shade + Light Contour Brush because it distributes the product very evenly. Love it!

Omg this one you guys… Even though I own so many eyeshadows, this one had to be invested in. This is pure eyeshadow porn…! All matte neutrals and browns… I mean LOOK AT IT! Just like the contour palette, the shadows are so creamy and pigmented it’s crazy. It’s totally worth the money and it’s not too expensive considering that you get 12 eyeshadows for 46$ (460 kr in Sweden). Buy buy buy it!

|Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette Swatches|
I honestly haven’t had the chance to play with all these beautiful colours yet – BUT these are just as amazing. A bit more diverse, you got blues, greys, silvers and purples as well as some nudes and one brown 🙂 Some of them are matte and some are shimmery, so it’s a really great mix. I mean, just look at the blue eyeshadow, it’s so gorgeous and I can’t wait to use these.
|Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Exorcism, Outlaw and Lolita|

The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are good – two of them are awesome and one of them is on the trickier side. Can you guess which one? Yes – the darkest one in the shade Exorcism. Unfortunately, my experience is that it wears off quite easily, especially when you eat and drink. But it does it anyways in the centre of the lips so you’ll definitely have to touch up. But, it’s a gorgeous colour! Lolita and Outlaw are much better with the formula, they don’t wear off that easily and stay on all day/night. I have to say that Outlaw is such a classic gorgeous red, it doesn’t smear, it’s just amazeballs and everyone should have it (that means go fuckin’ get it) – oh and it’s Kat’s favourite she literally wears it every day.
|Studded Kiss Lipstick in Archangel & La Femme|
Studded Kiss Lipsticks… I’ll be honest… I feel too sorry to use them but the little bit of swatching I did tells me they are very pigmented. Archangel is a very nice brick red and La Femme is a beautiful coral colour – perfect for spring!
All in all, Kat Von D Beauty has amazing products and the quality is top notch. If you live in the US, you can buy the products at Kat Von D Beauty or Sephora. As far as I know, Kat Von D isn’t available in Europe except in Scandinavia (Sweden and Denmark) where she just launched two months ago (see previous post).
