The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette is a 12-pan palette featuring warm, cool & neutral shades designed, of course, to contour the eyes.
Despite all the hype this palette had gotten, I never picked it up because I already have so many neutral palettes. But Kat Von D is possibly my favorite high end brand, so I decided that I needed this palette. The Shade + Light Eye Palette has Kat Von D’s traditional, gorgeous hand lettering and the packaging is made of a thick, sturdy black plastic. One critique I hear this palette getting is that the shadows are almost too pigmented, and I can definitely see this. On fair skin like mine, you can accidentally apply way too much product and struggle to blend it away. There’s not a shade that works great to transition in my crease for me, so this formulation makes it particularly difficult. Anyone darker than me probably wouldn’t face this problem, but you can see in my swatches that there’s not a great mid tone shade for me. Despite it being the most neutral Kat Von D palette I own, I can't say that it's my favorite, but I would still recommend it.
