Kat Von D Starry Eyes Makeup Palette Swatches! 

Hey friends! Today I decided to add another Kat Von D palette to the blog. This is her Starry Eyes Makeup Palette. This one was a holiday release for 2012. Included were two liquid lipsticks in shades Lolita and Adora. It also included four eyeshadow trio blocks. This is no longer available all together like this since it was a holiday palette.

Here is the front of the palette! It looks like a letter with an illustration of wings behind a wax seal. The palette is a bit bigger than average size and is a metallic red box.
Here is the back of the palette. It was hard to get a clear picture of the back because of the metallic sheen of the box. It shows the color trios, a scribble of what the liquid lipsticks look like, the ingredient lists and the serial number.
Here’s the inside of the palette. It has a nice mirror that has artwork from Kat under it and some stars in the upper corner. The eyeshadow trios are labeled by their set names and the lipsticks have their own spots. (My Lolita vanished, I have no idea where it went. Sorry) The eyeshadows are all in the same pan and you get stripes of individual colors.

I have the swatches for you in their sets. These sets are used to stress the smoky eye look.

The first set is Felix. I swatched these without primer just so you all know when it would be good to use. These three were nicely pigmented and the texture was firm but workable. They are also smooth and buttery. The white pearl shade is a nice base or brow bone shade, the middle would be your crease or inner and outer corner and then the last is your sparkle shade for the lid or to further blend the corners or crease.
The next set is Lohnër. This one is a bunch of dark plum shades to make a look with. The first base shade is a subtle light lilac with a white pearl shift to it. The middle is a matte plum that definitely swatched better with my finger than the brush. The last shade is a very dark plum with some silver sparkle glitter in it. This shade was pretty stiff and chalky and could definitely use some primer.
I wanted to love this trio so much. The first mint shade with the shimmer made me so excited for a really nice green look. Sadly, that first shade was the only one that swatched nicely. The texture and pigmentation are perfect in that shadow. Unfortunately, the second or third shade swatched terribly. On the finger they did alright. You can see where it is patchy in some sections. The brush swatches of both are terrible. I would definitely recommend primer to use this trio.
The last trio is Requiem. These were better than Helmüt thankfully. The first shade is a light purple that seems to almost have a link undertone to it. The middle is a purple mixed with a bright pink to almost make a fuschia shade. It swatched better with your finger. The last shade is a dark purple with the same pink undertones and some shimmer to it. It definitely swatched better with my finger and I would use primer when using this one as well.

I have the lip swatches of Adora for you next! Lolita is still available and a pretty popular shade, I just don’t have it right now. I apologize again for that.

Adora is a beautiful red lipstick with gold sparkle in it.
Here is Adora on my lips today. It is a seriously pigmented shade and looks very nice on. The gold is visible and this was with one coat.

Okay, so this limited edition palette is definitely fun and has great potential. I wish the shades were a bit more fun to work with. Please use a primer when using these. There are some very good shades in here but there is some negative also.
