KAT VON D Shade + Light Crème Contour Palette Review


Buy on Sephora 

When sitting down to write this review I decided that it might be a good idea to actually look the product up and see what it’s claims were, there might have been an info card in the box sent to me by Kat Von D but truthfully I only keep the hand written notes and the makeup…no deep reason why I just rarely read the info cards. So all while I’ve been testing this palette out I didn’t know specifically what they meant to be the best parts of this palette.


From the product page on Sephora


Experience the first ever, 24-hour, high-pigment crème contour palette. Forget everything you once knew about crème contouring—these velvety, non-greasy, and insanely blendable contour and highlight shades melt effortlessly into skin for bulletproof wear that is perfect for dry and oily skin types.


The Shade + Light Crème Contour Palette is loaded with a unique selection of shades and undertones that capture the true contour and highlight tones in every complexion. The three contour shades create realistic shadows to recede facial features, while the three highlight shades impart a soft luminosity to amplify dimension, so you can effortlessly sculpt, chisel, shape, and slenderize your features for enhanced definition.



24-hour wear – Certainly haven’t worn it to the 24hr mark but I will say that the times that I have worn it I have not experienced any color fading.


High Pigment – I feel like the shade colors are more pigmented than the highlight shades but the highlight shades are still fairly pigmented.


Non-Greasy – 100% agree with this statement and am genuinely shocked they cracked the code on how to formulate a non-greasy crème colors that isn’t solid as a rock and dry and crumbly.


Insanely Blendable – This as well is very accurate when I was just writing notes on what I wanted to say about this palette the blendablity was the first note I made.


Bulletproof wear – Thankfully I’ve had no situation to test this out but sounds like a bit of an exaggeration to me… if you have reason to be in need of not being able to be penetrated by a bullet look elsewhere.



Every complexion – This is my biggest complaint about this palette, the color range suits Fair to Modestly Tan. They may be confused on how wide a variety of complexions actually exist because this palette does not even suit the range of complexions of the models used to swatch. At the very least there was no misleading advertising because as you can see below these colors are not useful for deep skin tones. I really hope that Kat Von D beauty extend the shades in this crème because the quality of the texture of the crèmes is just amazing.
