If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know that I have taken a liking to Kat Von D’s makeup line. I purchased the Saint palette awhile back, and since then have acquired a couple other palettes, including the Beethoven palette.
The idea behind this palette is to create a smoky eye. The shades include:
– Lucifer (matte charcoal black)
– Speed Blue (dark metalic blue)
– Razor Gray (warm gun steel shimmer)
– Tequila (metallic cornsilk shimmer)
– Sinner (metallic purple black shimmer)
– Rad Purple (matte purple black with purple glitter)
– Leather (matte dark brown)
-Galeano (metallic medium plum shimmer)
– Two doubled-ended applicator brushes
This palette is $34 compared to the newer palettes, which have an eyeliner pencil and vintage cigarette case packaging, and are $36. This has a rubberized, matte case and two brushes. I don’t find the brushes particularly useful in this compact.
Sorry about the goosebumps!
This palette contains some really unique colors. Razor Gray (third shade above) almost has a tinge of green, and Galeano is just flat out pretty; it’s the shade I find myself reaching for the most often (the last shade swatched above).

The shadows are high quality and blend easily. I haven’t had a dud yet with Kat Von D’s eyeshadows, and the price is very reasonable for what you’re getting. The colors may look dramatic, but it’s really easy to create a natural look thanks to the brown shade. This is a great day-to-night palette too thanks to the matte black.
It’s versatile, affordable, and high quality. The only word of caution I have is that these blend REALLY well, so don’t go too crazy with that MAC 217. 🙂
