Stash Spotlight: Kat Von D Eye Shadow Palettes

spotlightHave you missed my stash spotlights? It’s been a while since I did one. I was tweeting happily the other day about doing a shower gel stash spotlight really soon but I was oh so scared you’d think that Muse girl was a little crazy for having that much shower gel!

Kat Von D Eye Shadow Palettes 10


I bring you a fun stash spotlight of my Kat Von D Palettes.

Loves ’em!


I’m planning or have been planning to review each palette with swatches and looks in detail after the Holidays or maybe before if I have a chance but for now here’s some fun prOn to get you drooling!

Wouldn’t it be fun if the palette images combined to create a snake like the Metalica cassette single releases…god am I dating myself here or what? All the young’in’s are sitting there saying, ‘eh? casettle singles? what’s dat? you mean like an Itune single?!”

Anyone have any Kat Von D Palettes?

Have ’em all?

Love ’em?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Those are GORGEOUS. The colours look so rich and pretty. I’ve never tried any Kat Von D products, but I look forward to your reviews/swatches!

    • the Muse

      oooo Shelia they are SO nice ๐Ÿ˜€ if you get a VIB coupon snag one, you’ll adore it!

  • MC

    I want to buy another Kat Von palette and give it another chance. The colors are so beautiful…I WILL MAKE THOSE SHADOWS STAY ON ME ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!!! overzealous there. I love her shadow colors so much…I pray I find a way to make it stay on my lids even if I have to try a new eye primer besides my trusted UD Primer Potion.

    • the Muse

      lol mc I seriously don’t have this prob….so interesting. How about some lid speckle from LG? maybe that’ll work!?\

      • MC

        I haven’t used spakle for the eyes yet. Is it good? It’s worth a try for me. I may also try the Too Faced eye primer to see if it will work with KvD.

        • the Muse

          it’s ok, it’s kinda like a beefed up sticky version of Lemon Aid. It adheres loose powers well but I felt like it creased a bit so I used it and UD primer which seems to work for really tough sparkly crap! I’m not a fan of TF eye primer everyone raves it but I adore UD and stick with!

  • Kate

    I have the Beethoven palette and love it. Have debated about getting the Ludwig palette for ages, but some other line always comes out with something I want more.

    • the Muse

      hey kate it’s lovely ๐Ÿ˜€ but I don’t think it’s LE so you can always haul it some other day when you don’t have lemmings from other brands dear!

  • Lisa

    You should so do a shower gel stash spotlight so I don’t feel so bad. I just did a major haul at The Body Shop and I feel so guilty. But they smell so good! And are recyclable, are fair trade….and did I mention they smell yummy?! But they did have that great sale today and how can anyone in their right mind pass that up.

    • the Muse

      LOL Lisa whatcha get?! ๐Ÿ˜€ But of course go and justify all that shower gel love you dished out for today LOL….

  • Ashley

    I am SO jealous. Gaaah I wants!
    I just forked out a bit of cash to get my friend one of the Kat Von D palettes… but didn’t get one for myself. GAAAH me wants ><
    They look so beautiful all together<3

    • the Muse

      ashley shhhh keep it for yourself don’t give it to her LOL!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Mollie

    I just got “Ludwig” today, which is totally ironic! I looooove it. I’ve been trying to use more browns for a less stark look. Greys, which I use a lot, are very pretty on me, but being super pale, they can look a bit… extreme. I feel like I’ve grown out of the dramatic look (for every day, anyway). So, the browns and greens from “Ludwig” look wonderful, and the actual quality is beautiful.

    I want the one with the purples, lilacs and “Razor” grey color next. I like these shadows better than MAC, personally. Although speaking of MAC, I bought “Dainty” Mineralize Blush today too. It’s so. Damn. Pretty.

    • the Muse

      ahhh awesome Mollie! ๐Ÿ˜€ I like ludwig alot ๐Ÿ˜€ I must say the colors are very buttery when compared to macs… the formula. Ohhh dainty is a good one ๐Ÿ˜€ I love the Mineralize blushes ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Aretha

    is that the true romance true love palette i see there?? hun you have the nicest stuff! ^__^ too bad we dont have Kat von d/sephora here! ๐Ÿ™

    • the Muse

      it is indeed aretha ๐Ÿ˜€ aw thanks! shoot it’s always such a bummer when you can’t get something sigh ๐Ÿ™ I KNOW that feeling well!

  • maryinwonder

    kyahahah you thought we would say you’re crazy becoz of shower gel? Noway~ You ARe crazy! Becoz of all these Kat von D palettes! They are amazing! *.*

    LOl I used to hve so many casettes, but now I can’t find any…must have packaged it well and hide somewhere XD Sometimes I want to listen to them (as I don’t have those music in mp3) , but even the only casette player left in the house is broken @[email protected]

    • the Muse

      LOL Mary! Oh man do I remember cassettes. I don’t even have a casette player in my house anymore! but I have tons of singles hahahaha!

  • JennXOXO

    I love your stash spotlights! I have the Gypsy palette and I love it. I still have a casette player in our house lol. I think my brothers car radio can play tapes lol. Your posts are hilarious ๐Ÿ™‚

    • the Muse

      hi jenn!

      Thanks babe! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love the Gypsy one too, love greens! OMG!!!!!! lol! Hook me up with your brother we can cruise around with my single collection LMAO!

  • Bonnie

    Muse, as you know I am a big fan of the Kat Von D palettes. I don’t have them all–YET! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have Metal Orchestra and Gypsy, and then I have a few of the single shadows. I totally need Ludwig and the others. I really wanted to make sure I got my paws on the LE ones, though, and then I figured I can get the other ones later. ๐Ÿ™‚ I want the new one really bad but since it’s received mixed reviews I’m holding off a bit! PS I still have ALL my cassettes from back in the day as well as quite a few ‘cassingles’. ๐Ÿ™‚ Need to get a new tape player though. I still make mix tapes from time to time for friends who still have tape players even! Although the blank ones are getting harder and harder to find! Still have all the mix tapes my friends made in high school too. Priceless.

    • the Muse

      hey bonnie! ๐Ÿ˜€ haha time to haul hun! :=D you need to catch up to me ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t wanna be alone ๐Ÿ™‚ I want alot of the other singles..only have two of ’em. mmm so far it’s not my fav one of the bunch actually…I’ll do a review shortly. LOL awesome! OMG dude I so do not even have a cassette player but I have all these singles in a box. Remember when Sam Goody used to have them for $1.99 or $.99? FUN!

  • Jaci

    Please do a shower gel stash spotlight! I am a crazy collector of it. Literally to the point where I can’t get my linen closet I turned into a product closet won’t close any more. I need to know I’m not the only crazy one!

    • the Muse

      YES JACI! Sista Shower Gel Lover! ๐Ÿ˜€ haha! Same problem here ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank GOD I’m not alone! Let’s form a club k?

  • dina

    omfgoodness if you saw my shower gel stash you might have me committed! i don’t know what it is but i am completely addicted. i could bathe, scrub & moisturize a good 5 blocks in my ‘hood :/ i feel like must have it now, if i want it later they prob won’t have it. it’s a sickness i tell you!

    • dina

      p.s. love the kat von d’s ~ what do you think about the true love palette? i was eyeing it for my sis-in-law for a christmas gift but ended up opting for the smashbox eye wish palette

      • the Muse

        love it dina but the smashbox did have alot more and prob will make a nicer gift!

    • the Muse

      hahah dina same prob here! I can probably wash the world with my gels ๐Ÿ˜€ DISEASEDZ! haha

  • jojoba(My Make Up Reviews)

    i only realized that you and i both have all the palettes! well, i haven’t received my True Love and worrying about its whereabout but i am still excited. i really love these. but the cream e/s dry up too fast. oh, well, there are 7 colours left for me to play in those LE ones anway. good stash!

    • the Muse

      did it arrive yet jojoba? Curious what you think! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thanks hun! So far thankfully the cream hasn’t dried up yet!

  • Marina

    I definitely want these! I have 3/5 of them on my Christmas list, but I plan on buying at least one (True Love) when I head out to the mall Saturday. The ones I’m dying for are Ludwig (I’ve been steering away from greens because of my previously huge collection of them, but after I threw away old shadows that just weren’t cutting it, I don’t have many left! Plus greens are so lovely with dark brown eyes…), Beethoven (love at first sight…) and of course, True Love. TL is my first priority though, as it is LE. I love that copper color and I think it will look amazing with purple. I own one of her duos in Livewire and I adore it. When I bought it it was the only thing I wore for about two months, ha ha. Can’t wait for swatches!

  • Hendrix

    I know this is an older entry but I hope you see this (kinda odd) comment…

    Can you tell how these palettes are put together? I don’t have one of these palettes myself, but from the pictures I can sort of see that the shadows are in those basic metal pans, which are inset in a plastic ‘liner’, which is inset in the larger ‘case’ part. My reason for asking is, I’d like to pick one up soon, but afterwards I want to see if I can remove the eyeshadow pans and the inner liner, so I can line the case in a bit of sticky-backed magnetic sheet and make a customisable palette out of it. Do you think it would pop out without damaging the case? I can haz your thoughts? Thanks! :3

  • Luna

    Hi Muse, I just stumbled onto the article and I was trying to look for the Gypsy palette but they don’t have it anymore ๐Ÿ™ Is there any way you can purchase the palette somewhere else? I even checked it in eBay. No such luck ๐Ÿ™ Thanks so much!

    • the Muse

      hi luna other than ebay no as Kat Von D’s makeup line is exclusive to Sephora hun

  • Luna

    Hi Muse! What great timing! I was able to snag the Gypsy palette from eBay. I think you gave me good luck haha!

    • the Muse

      • Luna

        Thanks so much ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope the palette doesn’t break by the time it gets here ^^;

          • Luna
