Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette Swatches!

Hi loves! Today is the second to last day of school for my daughter. She’ll be helping with my posts during the summer so I have am extra set of hands 🙂 today I decided to review Kat Von D’s Mi Vida Loca Remix eyeshadow palette. This was a holiday limited edition for 2015. It cost $59. I think the one for last year was the Too Faced Better Together collaboration. I couldn’t justify spending the money because I would have used the Too Faced side. 

Anyway, this palette has 24 shades that vary in neutrals, bright shades, matte and shimmer. I do enjoy the versatility of this palette but I do recommend using primer for the brights just to enhance them and make sure the color is bolder. These shades also share the names that match her studded kiss lipsticks.

Here is the front of the palette. This is a pretty big one but the packaging is so pretty. I think the main reason I love this brand’s packaging is because Kat does the artwork for each piece.
Here is the back of the palette. The back photo shows you how the palette is going to be set up. It looks like a vintage vinyl record. All the matte neutral shades are in the middle surrounded by a wheel of bright shades.
Here is a close up of the serial number just in case you find one to purchase and are worried about authenticity.
Here is the page of looks that come included in the palette. There are three different looks explained step-by-step for you.
Here is what the palette looks like out of the sleeve. There is no mirror but a lot of colors. Everything is labeled and set up nicely.

For the swatches I did the neutrals first and then in groups of three to really show how pigmented and colorful they are. They were done by finger and brush.

Here are the first four shades. Moulder is a very light beige matte shade that has a nice texture and good blendability. Vox is a middle brown matte that also swatched nicely and has good pigment. Strutter is if Vox and Moulder had a baby shadow. This is a beige shade that shows up great and had a good texture. The last shade, Lyric, is a shimmer white shade with some fun silver micro glitter. It is buttery and blendable. It would be a good inner corner shadow.
Here are the last three neutral shades. Black Metal is a nice and plain matte black shade. It swatched very nice and wasn’t patchy. Skulls is a light gray with silver shimmer in it. I love this shade. Noble is a darker version of Strutter. This is a good crease or base shade. 
Here are the first three shades of the outer circle. Löve is a light pink shade with a bunch of shimmer. Anthem is a matte magenta that you would want to use a primer in when using as you can see with the brush swatch. Muse is a light lavender matte shade that is buttery and nice to blend out.
These next three shades are pretty lovely. Echo is a bluish purple that has some pink sparkles in it. Please use primer for this shade because the brush application wasn’t as good as the finger swatch. Dark Wave is a matte navy blue that was decent with the swatches but primer would enhance it. Synth is a very pigmented electric blue matte shade that blows me away when I see it swatched. I was so excited that it was so pigmented and nicely textured.
Here are the next three in the circle. Hyperballad is a matte teal shade that primer is necessary. It doesn’t do badly but could be more intense. Lemme is a pretty brownish green with a bit of yellow shimmer shade. I enjoy this shade so much. It blended out great and has a great texture. Misfit is the electric green that I wished was in the Star Studded Eyeshadow Book. There isn’t any sparkle in Misfit but it is a beautiful matte electric green. Thanks, Kat!
Here are the next three. Vinyl is a shimmery and frosted version of Misfit. I use this shade for a lot of looks and because it can blend very well. Legend is a shimmery light yellow shade that also blends out very nicely. Fran is an awesome matte goldenrod shade that is a pretty unique shade. 
These three were so nice. They are pigmented, swatched great and are beautiful warm shades. Analogue is a matte light orange and is almost a peach shade. Harpsichord is a orange shade with a bunch of copper shimmer to it. Rewind is a raspberry shade with a bit of copper shimmer in it. I love these and I’m pretty sure you can make some beautiful eye looks with these.

These last two shades in the palette I recommend using a primer on just for more intensity. Destroyer reminds me of a matte strawberry shade. But you can see that it needs some primer to help it along. Swoon is a very pretty matte bright pink. It has the perfect name and performs very well. 

I like this palette a lot more than Star Studded because the shades are better formulated and perform better. Primer is still needed for a bunch of the shades but at least they can work on the eye. Xo
