I've had this palette for awhile now and I'm excited to review it finally. I wanted to really use it before I reviewed it fully. I think I mentioned it briefly in my Halloween makeup post, but I just wanted to really post it a full review since I've been using it basically every day.
This palette is so perfect. It's got neutral colors and it's got bright colors. I tend to err on the side of boring and bland lol. My go to colors are: Ashes, Chalice, Revelation, Sanctuary, Crucifix, Cathedral, Heaven, Sabbath, and Worship. I will say, I'm surprised there wasn't a matte gray. I'm so surprised by that. I would've expected a at the very least a dark or light matte gray. Don't get me wrong, it's the most beautiful palette like in the world, but I wish there was a matte gray.
Not only are the colors super versatile, and they match pretty much everything. Like I said, I like a nude eye, usually accentuating my dark brown eyes with nudes, browns, and purples. This was Sanctuary, Crucifix, and Ashes all blended.
This was me and Amber getting our goth on at the H.I.M. concert the other night. I'm wearing Sabbath, Cathedral, and highlighted with Amen. I'm also wearing my KVD Studded Lipstick in Slayer, pure black, with a little bit of KVD Liquid Lipstick in two shades of gray. Oh, and KVD Liquid Liner in Trooper. KVD all the things lol.
As a side note: I just really can't tell you ladies how overwhelming it is to see my face now compared to before. Had I know my thyroid was the problem was the root of my acne, I would've gotten it checked so long ago. Plus, I found the perfect makeup, and I'm not embarrassed to show my face anymore. Sometimes it makes me emotional. I digress.
Basically, this palette is amazing. The colors are beautiful, it's very versatile, the shadows go on smooth and you can make them lighter or darker depending on how you want your eyeshadows to look. I'm dark and brooding at heart, so this palette it literally right up my alley. I forget how much I paid for it, like $50-$60 I think. But seriously, worth every penny! Treat yourself to this as a Christmas present. You deserve it!
