“And we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun”
Hello my lovelies!
It’s another palette review! I feel like I have the world’s worst habit of reviewing all of my palettes that no longer exist, but maybe that’s not a bad thing. I definitely have a lot of thoughts on this particular palette, but we will be having that full discussion a little later down in this post.
Does something seem different to you? It’s not my eyeball once again. My cousin was gracious enough to let me use her face for this look, and I had full creative control. I love being able to do another person’s face, as it really just proves to me that I have the skill level to apply my techniques to another face instead of my own, which is arguably a far easier feat.
Unlike a lot of looks that I do, this one actually came out pretty much exactly as I had visualized in my head. Moreover, it was really amazing to be able to apply my idea to an eye shape completely different than mine, and have it work out wonderfully.
Let’s Get Started:
- Prime the eyes with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
- Pack the first shadow into the crease, blending into a haze after desired opacity is reached.
- Deepen the blend with the second shadow.
- Carve out the lid into a winged shape with concealer.
- Pack the third shadow onto the very center of the cut area, carefully filling in the entire area.
- Pack the fourth shadow onto the outer part of the cut lid, as well as onto the winged area of the concealer.
- Place the fifth shadow onto the inner part of the cut lid.
- lightly buff any harsh edges between all of the colors on the lid to create a seamless gradient.
- Repeat the same steps as used on the eyelid: third eyeshadow in the center, fourth on the outer corner, and fifth on the inner corner.
- Blend any harsh edges between the colors.
- Trace along the top part of the cut crease with a glitter liner, following all the way out to the wing.
- Line the waterline with a purple eyeliner.
- Highlight the tear duct with the sixth shadow.
- Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if you’d like.
Thoughts on This Palette:
I really enjoy the black shadow in this palette, as well as the two highlighting shades. All of the colors compliment each other and you are more than able to create a variety of looks with just this palette.
I actually dislike this palette for the most part in all honesty. The darker colors, with the exception of the black, can be incredibly patchy and hard to work with. The pigmentation is nothing to write home about, as I find it pretty comparable to my Morphe shadows. I also find the layout kind of wonky, with the shimmery brown shade sitting right in the middle of two much lighter highlighting shadows standing out as especially weird.
Would I Recommend It:
I would say that you can pass on trying to find this palette on eBay or Amazon. The pigmentation is just not there, and while this palette can be worked with, it’s not an easy task ultimately. For how expensive and prestigious Kat’s brand is, I ultimately did expect better.
That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a fantastic Friday!
