Oh how i wanted to love this eyeshadow palette! Yet sadly i do not.
I've been a loyal buyer/supporter of Kat's shadow palettes, this is the 1st one I have seriously major buying regrets.
The packaging is stylish & cute. Its also big & bulky so its not a traveller.
I am a matte fan..The real let down were the matte shades! I dont know if the formula has changed but it certainly doesnt perform the same way my other mattes from her have!
I always do test swatches & i found it a huge effort just to get a decent swatch with many of the mattes! They tested poorly for me. The main matte colours i wanted were the purplish grey one & the cool brown grey...both cool toned But i think they are the worst of the mattes in this palette.
The metallics, in this palette, are better than the mattes but overall i am disappointed in most of the colours.
I do not rec this palette. Its going to be a shelf-warmer for me and thats about it.
Sorry Kat, i luv to luv your eyeshadows but this one is a complete miss for me.
EDIT update -
Im going to be generous & add a lippie to my original review here. Why? Because the matte colour "kink" is a redeemer! Its beautiful!!! The 3 matte colours that disappoint me are "nylon" "knotty" "suspension". I was hoping for better for these 3.
The metallics are very pretty with "deviant" being my fave.
i still think theres nothing new or super special to have me running like a desperato to have this in my collection.
Tried using the mirror in this palette for a look & it was a bulky mess - esp for my lil hands.

I'll start the review the same as I began my other KVD festive-release palette reviews; the Fetish palette is more expensive compared to her other eyeshadow palettes, but you are getting more shadows then is usually included in her permanent and other seasonal le palettes; twenty four shades, in pans that are the same size as the non-base pans in the permanent Shade + Light palette. Another KVD festive-release palette review standard is pointing out the impressive shade selection; the shades are a medley of finishes in four different finishes and in a range of neutral, slightly muted tones, vampies and bold shade ranges, so there is something for every comfort level, every season and every occasion. The stars of the Fetish palette are unquestionably the red shades - good quality vegan reds are very rare and in Fetish you get one matte and two metallics (the ones that look pink in the promo photo are red). The matte purple and matte magenta shades also lovely, the matte Kelly green is stunning and the black is BLACK.

I've at least played around with every shade and think that the pigmentation on everything is awesome, and the shadow formula is very soft and buttery - and I'm not someone who usually bothers with primer. To date I've worn around 3/4 of the palette for all-day looks and haven't had any issues with fading, creasing or transfer. When I dip my brush into the shadows they do have some kick-up to them, but they aren't patchy and apply with only a little [if any] fallout and blend really well, so I generally don't feel that removing a star in my reviews is really necessary as long as the ease of use and performance isn't affected - just tapping excess off your brushes solves the problem. All highly pigmented shadows tend to be softer.


I've been a loyal customer of the brand ever since they first launched and this palette is the first time that I've ever had an issue with the performance of one of their eyeshadows; the matte yellow shade [Sex] looks lovely packed onto the lids and when applied with a liner brush, but can be patchy and clingy when I try to apply & blend it out as a crease/transition shade.

It's not a problem for me, but if you want every palette to be a one-and-done deal, then it's worth noting that there are no highlight-type shades for fair and light skintones, outside of a shimmery silver [Cuffs]. Another thing which doesn't bother me personally but may upset others are the shade names - the palette is called Fetish, so expect kinky shade names. Also; the two gold foil shades [Chastity and Submissive] are very softly pressed into their pans, so store the palette flat to avoid them shattering [the powders do repress easily if disaster does occur].


The Fetish eyeshadow palette has some very strong pluses to it shade-wise and has options for every occasion/season, so I'm very happy to add it to my KVD palette collection, though I don't find it as "wow" as her previous two years releases. The strengths are good enough to override my niggles, so I still recommend it to people - especially those looking for great vegan reds and purples.
