This palette is essentially Kat Von D's shimmer/glitter version of her famous Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette. The shades are essentially identical to the matte version, just in a sparkly form. The packaging is beautiful and almost identical to the original palette. It also comes with an enormous mirror, which is very helpful for application. The shades in this palette are beautiful, but unless a fluffy brush is used, it has a ton of fallout. The fluffy brush will minimize the fallout, but some mess is unavoidable with these shadows. This is more particular to the glitter shades than the shimmer shades. I would also recommend caution with using the glitter shades to those with sensitive eyes. The glitter top coats left me with a scratchy feeling around my eyes, which is particularlyuncomfortable for those of us with sensitive skin. Additionally, because the palette is entirely shimmer and glitter shades, many people may find it difficult to create looks due to the lack of mattes. The shadows are long lasting, although some of the glitter does transfer. The palette costs $49 and is limited edition. While the glimmer palette is not as long lasting and has more issues than the original Shade + Light palette, the colors are stunning and of high quality. Even with the fallout issues, I would still consider repurchasing this beautiful palette!

Perfect for covering acne scars. Was hoping this could be my holy grail foundation but it felt so heavy and sticky on my skin. I think the scent is very similar to sun cream which I hate.

I bought this in Rocker; it's very very orange. If I wear it as intended (following the application instructions) it is a really pretty, bold, very opaque orange color with some tiny flecks of glitter in it (i think some of the glitter is silver or clear). It lasts for hours and after I eat it only fades a little. I still see some stain on my lips in the evening before bed (after maybe 14 hrs wear). However, it's a bold color for me so I usually apply it this way: i use the wand and apply to top and bottom, then I smush my lips a little and immediately blot off with a towel until the color is toned down somewhat. Then i apply a lip balm for moisture. It comes off a little on the lip balm and throughout the day but that really tones it down a little and it leaves a nice stain color that I really like. It doesn't last as long that way as it does when i use it correctly though.

I was on the hunt for an amazing liner and bought this due to all the RAVES about it. It was ok. I’m starting to get some wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes and I find this product does not work well for my skin and would work better for someone with smoother, more supple skin. The pen started to dry out quite quickly and I couldn’t get a good amount of product from the get-go but I like my liners super wet which this is not. I think the best thing about this product is the brush/applicator. Otherwise I wouldn’t purchase again. I don’t feel I got enough uses out for the price. I have other liners that have lasted month after month and this dried out quickly.

I had to laugh at LogicGunn calling it out as a "cheap, nondescript scented-candle shop", but its true. The reformulated 2017 Saint is a subtle generic musky powdery vanilla floral. Bland, annoyingly headachy and not even original. Short lasting (1 - 2 hours on me). I say not original cause to me its a dupe for "Cabotine Fleur D'Ivoire". The fragrance notes are virtually identical! I've got them listed at the bottom of this review. Both have peach, vanilla, musk, and Salicylate listed. (Kat sneaks Benzyl Salicylate onto the back of the ingredients list yet leaves it out of the official notes.) The other names have been switched around to disguise. Eg White Flowers = Jasmine/Lily-of-the-Valley, Almond = Almond Blossom. In fact, if you swapped "clary sage, mirabelle" for blackcurrant the notes list would be identical.I think Kat has more filler in hers as its weaker and more boring. The filler she uses is "Benzyl Salicylate", the cheap chemical filler of the fragrance world that gives everything that Avon generic cheap musk scent to those who can smell it (some people can't like almonds, its a genetic thing, not something you can learn). This can smell/can't smell debate is a major reason why people find the same perfume so different. Anyway, in people who can detect Salicylates, it can be a MAJOR perfume allergen / cause of headaches. If you love perfumes but find you get headaches from cheap musky fumes, just check the ingredients list on the back of the box for "Benzyl Salicylate". Saint (2017) has Salicylate super high on the ingredients list, after alcohol and sunscreen. Sinner (2017) has it lower down on the list, so if Saint annoys you Sinner might work.Kat Von D Saint 2017 Top Notes - clary sage, mirabelle (yellow plum)Mid Notes - jasmine, almond blossom, lily-of-the-valleyBase Notes - vanilla, cedar, peach, muskCabotine Fleur D'Ivoire:Top Notes - blackcurrant, peach, almond, Mid Notes -vanilla, salicylate, white flowersBase Notes - sandalwood, tonka bean, musk
