Kat Von D Beauty MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette | Review

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.

MAC The Matte Lip: Matte Royal | Review

The only colour from the recent MAC collection The Matte Lip that appealed to me was Matte Royal. As the name suggests, it’s a royal blue colour and while I don’t normally go for dark lips (I prefer bright) I do love how this looks.

Despite being a matte lipstick it glides on smoothly and has an intense pigment. I would suggest using a lip liner with it, or a long wear eyeliner, but I don’t have one that matches, so if you have any suggestions then let me know!
