Oh my gosh, you have no idea how excited I am about this palette. This is the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette. It released Tuesday online at Sephora. It's Limited Edition and part of the new holiday collections for this year. It's HUGE. I was surprised at how big it was. It's $59 and has 24 eyeshadows. Mostly mattes and about 1/3 of the palette is shimmer.
In short, it's amazing. It's equally pigmented in every shade, it's bright, but has an inner wheel of neutrals. The packaging is super adorable and sturdy. Although it is big you get so much product that it's worth it. I love it. I'm in love with it. I can not say that enough. Color is my middle name though so you knew I would.
The idea behind this wheel is supposed to be a "vinyl record". It comes out of the cover like an old vinyl record would and the shades are musically inspired. What I love about this is that it's also the color wheel that we so often use. I done a whole post about how to use a color wheel for inspiration as well as canceling out colors and complimenting colors, this is so helpful for that! Instead of pulling up a color wheel for inspiration you just look at the palette and can see what shades are opposite each other on the color wheel and create a look according to what you want. It's genius!
Kat Von D has slammed it out of the park this year as far as product goes. Everything she's done I'm amazed with and so impressed. She just keeps the makeup world on it's toes. This palette is a "remix" from the Mi Vida Loca palette that was 8 shades. Now it's bigger and quite frankly more bad ass. She done the artwork for it herself, naturally. It's just breath taking both the packaging and the product.
These are all the swatches. It has no primer under neath. The only shade that didn't show up well was Legend which is a pale gold shimmer that just didn't show up well on my skin tone. It's actually very pigmented. The shades are:
Every color on the color wheel is in this in a variety of finishes and brightness along with neutral mattes and shimmers to help you as well. I wouldn't think you would need any other palette's help because this has it all. If you want a nice warm crease you could use Analogue very lightly on a fluffy brush or mix Analogue and say Moulder together for a paler peachy color. Also the finishes layered on each other give a duo-chrome type effect. So it's very fun to experiment with.
In this look I used Rewind first on the outer half and then Anthem on the center part. Then I layered Harpsichord and Legend over top to give a warm golden duo chrome effect. Analogue and Strutter are in the crease for transition shades and Lyric is my brow highlight. Lashes are Violet Voss "Vamptress" lashes. This was simple and the eyeshadows blended like a dream. They actually needed very little blending to be honest. They truly are a buttery formula. Color has never been so easy.
Check it out if interested, like I said it is going to be Limited Edition so when it's gone, it's gone.
