Kat Von D Beauty MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette | Review


1 2

When I first saw that Kat was releasing this palette I was super excited. I already have lots of colourful metallic eyeshadows but not many colourful mattes to work into them but this palette gives you lots of options for both. I have already fallen in love with the KVD matte shadows but have only tried one of the metal crush eyeshadows so was interested to see how they performed. The finish isn’t exactly the same for all of them, some have more glitter in and others have a finer metallic shine, they are all beautiful and pigmented however.

The matte shadows are all superb, with ribbon and silk being slightly more sheer than the others, the rest are all highly pigmented. The palette is highly versatile with there being options to create neutral looks as well as bold and colourful looks. The only downside to the palette is the size! It’s a lot bigger than I expected making it not particularly kit or travel friendly.

My friend’s parents picked this up for me while on a recent trip to the US but it will be available soon at Debenhams for £50 and is available now from Sephora for $60.

What I’ve been up to | Update

As you may have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog lately, this is because of my new job. I am now a full time Retail Makeup Artist for Make Up For Ever! This is a hug opportunity for me as it’s an amazing brand and it means I get to play with makeup everyday. We are exclusive to Debenhams in the UK and currently only have two counters in London and Birmingham, with one opening in Leeds soon.


So if you happen to be in Birmingham then pop down to the Bullring and pay me a visit!
