Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette

Shade & Light

Morning Bunnies!

After drooling over the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye palette for a few months, I finally purchased it and have spent the last few weeks playing with it.  I am in love!  I ordered mine from Sephora as you can’t buy Kat Von D products here in the UK but that’s about to change.  From October, we will be able to go crazy on her range in Debenhams and I am so excited.  It feels like the UK is finally emerging from the Dark Ages.


The palette is designed to contour the eyes … obviously.  Now, I can’t get on with contouring my face … mostly because I just can’t be bothered … but contouring my eyes sounds like more fun.  There are 12 shades, split into 3 different quads.  Each quad consists of a large base shade and then 3 co-ordinating powders for contouring, defining and highlighting.

There’s a neutral quad, a cool quad and a warm quad so there’s something for each skin tone.  Don’t tell anyone, but sometimes I pick a shade from each quad and go wild!


LAETUS – creamy nude base shade

SAMAEL – dusty fawn contour shade

SOLAS – espresso brown define shade

LUCIUS – soft beige highlight shade


LAZARUS – cool taupe base shade

SALEOS – smoky brown contour shade

SHAX – jet black deine shade

LIBERATUS – pinkish ivory highlight shade

LUDWIN – peachy bronze base shade

SUCCUBUS – rich rust contour shade

SYTRY – chocolate brown define shade

LATINUS – golden bisque highlight shade

The shades are, mostly, very soft, finely-milled and velvety, but there is a slight powdery consistency to them.  You need to use primer with these shadows to prevent patchiness and to make them easier to blend.


The palette also contains an illustrated guide to help you to master 3 transformative eye contouring techniques:

DEFINE – to emphasise lash lines and create depth

LIFT – to raise outer corners and accentuate or create a crease

BALANCE – to draw eyes either closer together or farther apart
