It’s officially landed, the Kat Von D collection has finally hit the UK – *sighs with relief*. I’ve been debating for so long whether to go through with that Sephora order, but now I don’t have to. The minute the range launched on Debenhams online, I had to order a couple of things just to keep myself sane, I would be silly not to right?
Firstly we have the very famous Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. This is that perfect shade for Instagram pictures – that deep mauve nude that screams utter perfection. I’ve never tried Kat Von D products but by first impressions I am so happy with the quality. Liquid lipsticks can either be drying or perfect, and this one comes under the ‘perfect’ category.
From first impressions I noticed that the formula is extremely long lasting. By long lasting I mean it doesn’t budge. When I swatched it literally didn’t come off my hands with water, even by scrubbing it. Even on the lips it just stays put, and I love that. There’s nothing worse than a liquid lipstick so drying it crumbles off within an hour. Now I’ve got one I want more, so let the shopping commence!
This order wouldn’t be complete without ordering an eye palette, as I’ve heard amazing reviews everywhere, and now I know why. I purchased the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette just because it was totally necessary. I’ve never owned an eye palette like this where there are only matte shades, and I can already tell it’s going to be up there with my favourites. The shades range from light creams to a black, and anywhere in between is every shade of brown you need.
All of the shadows are extremely pigmented and creamy, which made them very easy to blend. The palette comes with 12 shades that are of neutral, cool and warm undertones that help you to capture the true hues of shade and light. The deeper tones are to add depth and the brighter shades are to accentuate the best angles. There’s so much to this palette and you can make so many looks from it, there’s something for everyone.

With my order I also received a deluxe sample size of the famous Tattoo Liner in Trooper, the most easy to use liquid liner you’ll ever see. It has an extremely thin tip that gives you a jet black thin liner, which stays put all day. It’s soon becoming a favourite of mine, especially for those days when winged liner is at its most difficult – many of us could use a little help, right?
