KAT VON D Products Reviews ♡ + Swatches ft. Alchemist Holographic Palette, Contour Palette, Setting Powder, Foundation Brush, Tattoo Liner & Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.

I haven't been feeling as motivated as I should be towards my beauty blog, hence why I haven't posted anything for nearly a month and I feel totally guilty about that because I went from posting three times a week to once a week... and now I am not posting at all?! Totally not happy with myself and right now all I want to do is switch on my motivation mode!

Today I am sharing with you some top rated Kat Von D products and these were provided from Sephora NZ for review. I have been trying these products for two weeks, some worked amazingly and some didn't meet the expectation, but overall I am glad to be able to finally try out the products that has been on my wishlist. As per usual, it doesn't matter if the products are provided for review or purchased with my own money, I will review these products based on how they performs on me. All opinions are my own and I am sure you have heard this plenty of times, but I just feel the need to say it again that the products works for me may not work for you and the products that didn't impress me may be one of your holy grail.

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette comes packaged in a white triangle cardboard box with a duo chrome design. The palette features four standard eyeshadow-sized pans in shades green, blue, ultra-violet and pink, and they are designed to use on the eyes, lips and face. The holographic effect is shown differently depending on your viewing angle.

Although the colours looks absolutely gorgeous and iridescent on arm swatches as below, I find that the powder is very drying to touch and it clings to dry patches on the skin. It has a thin texture and a semi-opaque pigmentation, but Emerald (green) and Saphyre (blue) doesn't look too wearable when worn as a highlighter. I also find that the pans are too small and I couldn't find a face brush that I could swirl around without powders flying everywhere, because the formula is very dusty.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette features three highlight shades and three contour shades. It comes packaged in a black cardboard magnetic casing with a big mirror, it's quite sturdy and I love the overall design and the shades included.

I used to own this palette, but then I had to let it go for some reason; I am glad that it's finally back in my hands though because I love the KVD Shade + Light Contour Palette.

I love that it has a smooth and creamy texture that blends out like a breeze on the skin, it has just the right amount of pigmentation that allows you to apply without worrying that it's too dark or having to build up the shades because it's too light. Also I love that the shades doesn't look orange on me and it looks natural on all year round.

The shades that I use the most is the ones in the middle called "Lyric", a brightened yellow beige and "Shadowplay" a soft brown with warm undertones.

Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder

Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder is described as a weightless and translucent loose powder that is formulated to softly diffused pores, smooth imperfections and lock-in your look for a velvety matte finish.

I have oily skin with a crazy T-zone and this powder is so finely milled that it sets my face without looking cakey. Although the staying power is not long as I would have to apply couple of times during the day, I like that it smooth my face and gives me that instant fresh face look after each application.

Kat Von D Lock-It Edge Foundation Brush

Kat Von D Lock-It Edge Foundation Brush features a sculpted shape that conforms to the unique curves and contours of your face, it claims to allow you to reach every corner of the face.

Ever since I bought the KVD Shade + Light Contour Brush, I have been so obsessed with their brushes. I love that the bristles is so soft and it makes any products blends out beautifully, even if not using with a KVD product. Therefore, I got the Lock-It Edge Foundation Brush. Although I am not used to a non-flat-top foundation brush, I actually quite like the way this brush performs on me.


Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is described as a liquid eyeliner with an innovative brush tip that claims to apply effortlessly with a precise application.

My friends are constantly recommending the Tattoo Liner to me, saying that this is the best eyeliner they have ever tried and some can't even live without it; but I have always been a gel liner kinda gal, so I never really take up their advice on trying this liquid eyeliner.

Until the day that I tried the KVD Tattoo Liner that I really just want to ask myself, what took this long for me to try this product?! Just as my friends says, THIS IS AMAZING! I got to admit that I wasn't impressed when I first swatched it on my hand because the shade isn't too pigmented and it's kind of watery, but then when I tried it on my eyes, it dries almost instantly, it's very pigmented and it applies effortlessly just as KVD claims. The eyeliner wears for long hours without smudging during the day, I am not sure if it's waterproof and I may have to test it out next time I go for a swim.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Outlaw

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is described as a long-wearing, high-pigmentation liquid lipstick that features a creamy, colour-riched formula that glides over lips as effortlessly as a gloss, but dries to a true matte finish and it claims to feel weightless all day long.

Outlaw is described as a brick red, and the one shown above is actually a sample sized. Sephora only sells the full sized one which is NZD$30.

I have never been a fan of the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and I have always thought that it's overrated. Although I do own both Lolita and Lolita II, I just don't really like the formula. To me, it's very drying during wear and I know all matte liquid lipsticks are like that no matter what brand is it, but this one is especially drying on me. I also dislike that I can never apply perfectly with this product, while I can with all other matte liquid lipsticks brands.

Anyway, I love the colour of Outlaw, it's absolutely gorgeous.
