Kat Von D Palette Review - Memento Mori (Limited Edition)

I must say, I've always been a bit skeptical of celebrity make-up lines because I feel like the quality is not always the best. These companies try to sell a product based on whose face and name is on it. That being said, I was blown away by the quality of Kat Von D's eyeshadow palettes, which are  Sephora products. In case you don't know who Kat Von D is, she stars in the TLC show LA Ink.


The colors in this palette, (and the others, as well), are highly pigmented and apply true to the way they look in the pan.


Tijuana is seriously my favorite black eyeshadow right now! It's a highly pigmented black with gold sparkles in it. I would buy this palette again just for that one color. 


Sugar Skull, Peggy, Hard Luck, Tijuana


Solitude, Meditation, Agatha Pink



The first look is more for day. It's flirty, fun and inspired by Harajuku dolls :)













Face: Smashbox Photofinish Light, MAC Studio Fix Fluid & MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Cheeks: MAC Powder Blush in Peaches
Eyes: Memento Mori Palette: Solitude, Meditation, Agatha Pink, Sugar Skull, Peggy
Lashes: Random Japanese lash from Daiso (#10, only $2)
Lips: Trucco Lipliner in Red 7073 no. 10, MAC Lipstick in Coral Polyp




I feel like the lipsticks look kind of similar in the pictures, but they are quite different, as you can see from the swatches. In the picture below, Hellbent is on the left and Coral Polyp is on the right.



The second look I created is super dramatic and was inspired by Kat Von D herself.





Face: Smashbox Photofinish Light, MAC Studio Fix Fluid & MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Cheeks: MAC Powder Blush in Mocha
Eyes: Memento Mori Palette: Agatha Pink, Peggy, Hard Luck, Tijuana
Lashes: MUFE Lash 108
Lips: Trucco Lipliner in Red 7073 no. 10, Kat Von D Lipstick in Hellbent
