Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette Review

Hello, my pretties! ♥

Lately, all sorts of brands have taken advantage of the contour & highlight craze by releasing new products; however, none of them have quite caught my eye like this palette. It was love at first sight. Finally, about a month ago, I went to Sephora and spent the gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket since Christmas. I took it home and have been playing with it since. I can't put it down. For those of you who have your eyes planted on this beauty or just for those of you who are curious, here's my review of the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette.

KVD Makeup claims, "An exclusive contour palette featuring 3 shades for contouring and 3 shades for highlighting, designed to shape and define facial features to create a look of authentic dimensionality."

Kat Von D is one of the most well-known tattoo artists of our generation. She is also a musician, model, fashion designer, philantropist, and makeup artist. Her beauty line of cosmetics is inspired by the tattooing inks she works with in her studio. Thanks to her vision in full color, KVD created a makeup collection that focuses on great quality, high-pigmentation, and long-lasting performance.

The inspiration behind the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette, in particular, came from Kat continuously trying to understand the usage of shade & light to bring features forward on the portraits she draws and the tattoos she places on her clients. This is a true makeup artist contour & highlight palette.

Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Lipstick Moisture Matte Review & Swatches

Hello, my pretties! ♥

A little over a month ago, I shared with you a preview of the new Moisture Matte Lipstick collection that was recently released by Milani Cosmetics for Spring 2015.

Milani Cosmetics claims, "Meet your matte. Your fantasy matte. The matte that not only feels great (yes, you read that right - it's actually comfy) but also lasts for hours and has 'a-mazing Instagram selfie' written all over it. Infused with grape seed extract imported from Italy, this smear-proof lip soother delivers mega color that won't budge, even after a close encounter with a cappuccino cup. In eight luxe, go-the-distance shades, from the oh-so-sweet, pale pink Matte Innocence to the va-va-voom, fiery-red Matte Passion. This matte? So major."
