Another look with the Kat Von D Angeles Palette

I don't know if this is two looks or one... How about one and a half? It's the same thing both times, I just did a slight variation on it the second time. Here's how I wore the Kat Von D Angeles palette for the past few days:

Ugh, my eye looks creepy in these pictures...

This one was:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Rehab on lid
Peggy in crease and outer half of lower lashline
Bukowski in inner crease to darken Peggy
Venus on lower lashline
MAC Vanilla highlight
Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss for liner
Benefit BADgal Lash mascara

I like the copper and the blue/turquoise together. Looks beachy.

And then I did:

I tried to get the duochrome sparkles to show up... can you tell? They flash green, blue/turquoise and pink.

This one was:
Urban Decay Greed Primer Potion (that's the gold shimmer one)
Rehab on center of lid
Morphine on top of Rehab
MAC Reflects Transparent Teal glitter on top of Morphine
Peggy in crease and inner lid
Bukowski to darken crease
Venus on lower lashline
Too much MAC Vanilla (the shadow, not the pigment) to highlight
Illamasqua Abyss liner

I wanted the sparkle from Morphine, but once I put it on it just wasn't sparkly enough. I added MAC Reflects Transparent Teal on top of Morphine which made an awesome base for the glitter. That's one use for the cream shadow. This is the first cream shadow in a Kat palette that I've actually been able to work into a look without it ruining everything. Morphine is very pretty, but now that I know it enhances duochrome glitter and prevents fallout, that's what I'm going to be using it for.

I've noticed that the Venus color stings my eyes. I try not to get shadow in my eyes, but this one seems like it's attracted to my eyeballs somehow. And when it gets in there, owwwwwwww stingy!!

That Illamasqua liner is awesome, by the way. It's waterproof but it's not freaky sticky like MAC Liquidlast. I'll do a review of that sometime soon. I've been trying to do nail art with it as recommended to me by Illamasqua, but my shaky hands are conspiring against me.

So, there's the blue half of the palette. Still haven't used Bellbottom yet. Hm. What to do with it?


  1. I liked the other look you did with this palette, but this blue look is really fresh and bright. Not sure which I like more.

  13. Very pretty. I haven't tried my palette out yet. Your liner is excellent! Older, more wrinkly lids make lining eyes a bitch!
