Worth the Splurge? Kat Von D Saint palette



I have a love for tattoos. I also have mix feelings on Kat Von D personally but I jumped at the chance to try one of her makeup palettes. They always looks so cool, and I love the packaging.

I got this as a birthday gift. I was so excited to try this. Finally I got to test out one of her palettes.

Let's see what I think of it!






I have the biggest love hate with this. I want to love this a lot, I really do. The shimmery shades are super creamy which I love. The matte shades are chalky and apply chalky.

That's a bummer about the chalky matte shadows. Wear times is actually great with these shadows, all day when used with a primer.



One thing I hated was that Downtown, Sunny and Pray for me just had to much orange shimmer in it for me to use. They looked horrible on my skin tone. <3 applied patchy and didn't show up all that well.  Bookworm and Caravaggio were patchy as well. Heavens  is an awesome highlighter! I did love Enjoy the Silence it's a pretty pale gold shimmer.

Top row: heavens, enjoy the silence, <3, middle row: Downtown, Sunny, Pray for Me, Bottom Row:Bookworm, Caravaggio
VERDICT: Is this worth the splurge? No, not for me. The matte's were streaky, and three of the shimmers have orange undertones that just done work with my skin tone. Will someone else love this? I can say yes since it is long last eyeshadow with a primer. Sells for $36.
