This is my first KVD holiday purchase, but I've been an avid purchaser of her eyeshadows in particular for the past five or so years. I purchased this as a treat for myself after completing my first month of solo teaching, and I have to say that it is a very luxurious product. The shadows are buttery and smooth and blend beautifully, and they are so much fun to play with! The red shade is to die for, and vegan red eyeshadows that are so high quality are really tough to come by. I've heard a lot of people complain about the color story of this palette, and I can understand where that issue comes from. However, as far as I understand it, Kat designed the palette so that each side would have its own color story. The 'Saint' side is more neutral/plum shades that are awesome for everyday. The 'Sinner' side has all those lovely, rich bright colors that Kat loves so much, plus a wonderful matte black eyeshadow. When you close one side of the palette, the color stories make so much more sense. My absolute favorite shade in this palette is Chalice, which is a gorgeous cool-toned gold shimmer. It's so pretty swept over the lid with a dash of eyeliner when you have to run out the door. Sacred Heart is also lovely, as well as Crucifix. I have no qualms with any of the colors in this palette, but those three are my absolute favorites. I tend to use the 'Saint' side far more often than the 'Sinner' side, just because I've always gravitated toward more neutral looks. The oranges and rust shades on the 'Sinner' side have been great for autumn date nights and different things, and I've yet to find ways to incorporate that bright chartreuse shade or the really beautiful blues into my regular rotation as of yet. Application of these shadows is easy and simple, but with a heavy hand, you'll have to subject yourself to lots of blending! They are very pigmented and very high quality.When MakeupAlley asked if I would repurchase this palette, I vacillated between 'Yes' and 'No'. I ultimately went with 'No' for 2 reasons. The first reason is that I already own so many eyeshadow palettes that repurchasing this one would be totally silly. The second reason is that there is SO MUCH PRODUCT in this palette that I can't imagine having to repurchase it ever in my life. I'm not a makeup artist, influencer, or blogger so I don't go through makeup quickly at all. If I were in one of these lines of work, then maybe I would repurchase, but as a regular-Jane teacher, I have no need.

Another product I bought because of the hype, adding that I just wanted to try a KVD product. I bought this as my first one around 8 months ago.I've already hit pan on the soft peachy highlight and the warmer brown middle shades, because these are sooooo powdery. I guess this is what makes them so smooth and blendable but I find it kind of annoying, having to be so careful. Otherwise I feel like I'm wasting product.I can use all the shades which I find surprising. I'm tan and I can even use the darkest shade which I was skeptical about at first, but as I commented before they're so blendabe it ends up fusing (?) into the skin and looking great. For reference, before getting this I was using Smashbox's contour pallete (which is nice) however I think KVD's is much more blendable, you get more shades (hence more versaitlity), and more product for the price.

I purchased the Kat Von D Ink Liner in Neruda, which is white. The felt tip is very fine and very stiff. It's a very similar shape and size to the brush tip on her Tattoo liners. It goes on a little bit patchy, but it glides on the eye smoothly and is easy to control. You can build up the colour easily with another coat of liner. The white colour stays white all day, even on my greasy lids. It doesn't fade or smudge, even after 12 hours. I like it and do prefer it over her Tattoo liner.

Sage is at the bottom our of all the quads. The peachy base and yellow/cream highlight are powdery and chalky. The olive contour is on the sheer side and unlike the other three quads. The deep pine green definer isn't as opaque as the other definers.When blended the contour and definer hues turn muddy...next
