Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette

I don’t own too many Kat Von D products but her Shade + Light Eye Palette is a go to. In the land of constant palette launches, it gets lost in the sauce. If I’m leaning towards a matte neutral shade, KVD has it. When I saw the release of the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette ($49), I knew it was going to be mine. ✨✨

Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette has 12 neutral shades in a range of glimmer finishes. Not quite glittery but with a bit more pizzazz than shimmer. This palette is the perfect companion to the original Shade + Light Eye Palette.

The original all-matte version features 12 eyeshadows in the neutral family. It’s essentially the go-to for a contoured and smoky eye. The Glimmer version also has the same exact shades as the original matte edition. It does not come with a brush, however, you can purchase the her Glimmer Effect Eye Brush separately for $24.

All of the powders are easy to work with. No patchiness and no issues blending. The colors are pigmented so I go in with a light hand then build, should I desire. The topcoat shades are quite sheer and work well if you spritz the brush with water or Fix+. I’m very happy with this purchase because this palette does not disappoint.

The Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette is available now at Sephora stores, online, and KVD’s website.
