REVIEW & EOTD: Kat Von D Chrysalis Palette...

The second of the Kat Von D Metamorphosis palettes - Chrysalis. This broody darling came to me from the same gorgeous gal pal as the Monarch one  Yes I know, I'm spoilt - spoilt rotten! 
Another magnificent selection of shades (mainly cool ones), and versatile mix of mattes, shimmers and sparkles. Same packed-with-goodness formula, and blending these buttery triple-milled pigments requires neither effort nor skill...

Awesome packaging - it's only cardboard, but solid as a rock, and there's a powerful magnet in the lid to keep it secure...
Swatches over a bbcream, a couple of finger swipes each...


The purple swatch above is quite bright and bold, but in the EOTD below, it looks (disappointingly) less intense. I've worked with this hue several times, and all I can say is it's a lighting thing, plus I used a different camera - in real life, the colour was much closer to the example above, and deliciously shimmery...



So this is Mezzanine and Entombed, and Jewel Amethyst Eye of Horus Goddess Pencil on the waterline...


And here's the whole look, with my new hairdo! It's more like a pixie cut, and much MUCH cooler for the summer...


For this EOTD, I used Entombed - it turned out a bit greener than the swatch because I patted it down over a base of Eye of Horus Goddess Pencil in Teal Malachite...


And also used the Teal Malachite on the waterline...


SO impressed with both these KVD palettes, and SO thrilled to have them in my kit. Needless to say I'll be experimenting heaps more with Chrysalis, especially once we're into the cooler months - can't wait to try those sensational silvers and greys ...

Take care of you,

    1. Hey Beth, my darling and unbelievably generous friend wished to remain anonymous, so I'll leave it at that ♥

  3. The swatches are quite different. If it looked like the swatches in real life, that Mezzanine must be amazing! I also can't wait to see what you do with those silvers. Hybrid Moments looks like a great winter colour.

    I can't believe the difference that pixie cut makes, it's fantastic! Very flattering.

    1. I probably could have made the Mezzanine look more vibrant with photo editing, but I'd rather keep things as they turn out - I swear sometimes this particular camera makes my skin look green! I might have to get another one lol. Thanks heaps for the hair feedback sweetie - I miss my solid fringe, but the humidity was getting to me big time ♥

  4. I can't stand humidity either. I buy 3B Neat Feat's Face Saver, it's like a facial antiperspirant, but it contains aluminium, so you mightn't like it. I get it from Chemist Warehouse & put it on my face & the back of my neck.

    1. Sounds interesting hon, although I do have some concerns about the aluminium content - I think I'll just blot!
