Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Palette First Impressions

Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Palette First Impressions

Happy Sunday!

Today I have a lot of studying to do, reading for my lecture tomorrow, and I’ve decided to bake some cupcakes with the kids I tutor next door, because it’s their birthday tomorrow (they’re twins). However, I’ve found a little bit of time to play with my new makeup…

I recently won a Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette, thanks to the lovely Emma Inks, which arrived this week. I’ve been at uni and work all week, so I haven’t really had a chance to have a look at it… until today.

FYI: I’ve never had an expensive eyeshadow palette before (yes, I’ve never tried an Urban Decay Naked palette), with the exception of some Benefit christmas sets when I was younger. This was a completely new experience for me: I never wear eyeshadow usually, I don’t have any eyeshadow primer, and I wear glasses so I usually don’t bother with eye makeup (except mascara). Oh, and I’ve never tried any Kat Von D products. I’m such a fail of a blogger, but hey I’m being honest.

With that bit of context, here are my first thoughts…

  • The packaging is absolutely beautiful, and so me. I love the gothic-y cathedral window design, and the names of each colour.
  • There are 12 ‘Saint’ colours, described as “dreamy, effortless and romantic”, as well as 12 bold, pigmented ‘Sinner’ colours, which is perfect for every kind of look I could ever need.
  • It’s not very practical to travel with, mainly because I’d be worried about damaging it. It’s also quite big!
  • I like that it has mirrors inside, it’s really useful.
  • Some of the eyeshadows are sooooo sparkly, it’s wonderful.
  • I like that it includes a variety of different eyeshadow types: matte, shimmery, metallic, pearlescent, and glitter.
  • Kat Von D products are never tested on animals, and this palette doesn’t contain parabens, which is great.  Vegan + Cruelty Free = yes please.

This is $62 from Sephora, I can’t find a UK shop that sells it (it’s an exclusive limited edition), but I have seen some on eBay!

Have you tried any Kat Von D makeup?

Thanks for reading!
