I have recently acquired this lovely palette. Obviously the trend for this year is going to be contouring and highlghting and so every company is coming out with their own version of contour and highlight powders and creams. This one is by far my favourite from the few I've tried. So on with the review!
The packaging is so beautiful and the quality is phenominal. Its heavy and sturdy and very nice! I always love Kat Von D's packaging, its always very cool!
The box has all the shades and their names on the back which is definitely helpful.
It has a nice large mirror which is always nice.
The shades are beautiful and good for multiple skin tones. So far I've used all of them on my skin and they apply so beautifully with a brush. All of the shades are completely matte and their formulas are wonderful!
So here are the six shades. They are so beautiful and very pigmented. There is a little bit of kick off when you dip your brush into the pan.
Lucid is a is a pinkish tone highlight colour that really brightens the undereye area.
Lyric is a yellow tone brightening powder. It is great for the undereye and corrects some of the darkness.
Levitation is an interesting shade. It is a very salmon-y coral type colour. Still very brightening but I don't use it under the eye. I use it more under my contour.
Sombre is a great shade for contouring. It is a cool tone almost grayish brown that is perfect for creating shadows around the face.
Shadowplay is a great bronzing shade as it is a warm brown. I love using it with a big fluffy brush and dusting all around my face where the sun would give me a nice bronze.
Subconcious is a very deep brown. Not too warm and not too cool either. I use it to deepen my contour under my cheekbones. It is very nice but quite dark for me, so I wouldn't use this everyday. It works great if you want an intense contour.
So there it is, the wonderful Shade/Light palette. Let me know your thoughts and if you own this palette. I recommend it for everyone! It really is worth every penny!
