Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book Swatches!
Hi friends! I hope you’re having a good day! Today while I’m waiting for the service electric man to come, I have an internet connection! I swatched the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book for you all! This was a holiday palette for 2015 and cost $55. There are 24 shadows in here and set up as a quad shadows for unique eye looks for you. There are matte, shimmer and sparkle shades.
Before I start, as a fan of Kat Von D’s eyeshadows, this collection is not like her normal formula. It is chalkier and not as pigmented. There was also so much fallout. To be honest, you’re not missing anything if this isn’t in your collection. The shade, Gothica is the biggest disappointment I’ve ever encountered. I’ll definitely show you in the swatches. Here come my shots of the palette!
I did the swatches with finger and brush like usual and I did them in quad shades so you can see four shades at a time and how they would be used in each look.
Okay so I’m pretty sure that was one of the most disappointing swatch reviews I’ve ever done. Sometimes when holiday palettes are released, so get a bit paranoid about the quality of them just because everything is so rushed to meet the deadline. I’m pretty sure that holds evident here. A lot of these shadows should have been reformulated so they were usable. Gothica, specifically. There were some hits in here but I think the misses stand out more. Xo
