A New Start

This feels like deja vu...

I've tried sitting down and writing this post (and others) many times over the past couple of years, but have not published any of those drafts. Something always got in the way, and it just didn't feel like the right time to come back despite me wanting to. But as with most things in life, there's never a right time to start something - or pick it back up, in this case - you might as well just go for it.

So here I am, taking the first steps to giving this blogging thing another shot. I don't know what direction I'll take with it, probably a bit of everything. But what I do know is that I've missed it dearly. 

Whether you're new here, or have followed me in the past: Welcome. I hope you'll stick around.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette Review and Swatches

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present to you: the best nude palette (in the world)!

Shortly after the Kat Von D Shade + Light face palette was released, we got glimpses of another version, for your eyes. I basically squealed with excitement when I saw the previews, and counted down the days until its launch! Naturally, I ran out and picked it up the day it went on sale. It was love at first sight.

This gorgeous palette is marketed specifically for eye contouring, with 12 matte shades divided into three quads in neutral, cool, and warm tones. It is also cruelty free, and available exclusively from Sephora for $46.

The front of the palette is designed with beautiful embossed letters and gold detailing; the back outlines the pan placement, with each of the shade names.

Open up and we are greeted with a large, beautiful mirror with more gold detailing. 

Each quad comes with one .08 oz (2.3g) base shade, and three .04 oz (1.1g) shades for contouring, defining, and highlighting. The three quads from left to right are: neutral, cool, and warm.

Neutral Quad 

Laetus is a pale, creamy nude.

Samael is a light "fawn" brown.

Solas is a walnut brown.

Lucius is a soft beige.

Cool Quad

Lazarus is a light taupe.

Saleos is a rich, smokey brown.

Shax is a pitch black.

Liberatus is a cool ivory.

Warm Quad

Ludwin is a muted peach.

Succubus is a rusty copper red.

Sytry is a chocolatey brown.

Latinus is a light champagne.


I've been using this palette daily for several months, and it has quickly become my holy grail. Do I think this is a must have? Definitely, especially you like playing around with nude mattes and/or incorporating them into your looks! Whether you're going for an everyday look, a sultry smokey eye, or anything in between... this is it! Every shade is soft, finely milled, pigmented, and blends beautifully. I also think that this palette is fairly priced at $46 for .60 oz of product. Bonus: it comes with an insert that shows you how to achieve different effects with each quad!

Basically, I love everything about it; well done, Kat Von D!

Hello, my lovelies!

Ah, where do I even start?

It has been quite some time since I've posted anything new here, and for that I am very sorry! Instead of giving you a long winded and rather boring explanation for my absence, let me just put it briefly: life happened, and I got overwhelmed.

But this isn't a woe-is-me post; rather, I wanted to let you know that I have recently updated the look of the blog (let me know what you think!) and that I am currently working on new content for you. Among new things are product reviews and swatches, tutorials, fashion posts, and lots more! I am very excited to get back into the swing of things, and I hope you enjoy what I have planned!

With that said, I value each and every one of you, and would like to know what kind of content you would like to see in the future. Let me know in the comments! Also, make sure to follow me on social media, bloglovin, and subscribe to my channel (links are in the side bar) so you don't miss out on anything new ^_^

See you soon!
