Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette | Review and Tutorial

The MetalMatte palette is unlike anything else on the market. A gorgeous colour selection in two very different finishes. If you want to hear more about this palette, see swatches and watch a tutorial, keep reading!

Kat Von D – The Brand

Kat Von D MetalMatte If you didn’t already know, I am a huge Kat Von D Beauty fan. It’s not because of Kat Von D as a celebrity but because I really respect the brand. KVD products all have a very artistic edge to them, the colours go well together, and the design is unique. I really rate the quality of  every product I have tried from the brand; foundation, eyeliner, contour kit, eyeshadows  and liquid lipsticks. I’ve said it so many time on social media, but the Shade and Light Eye is my ultimate everyday palette!


Kat Von D MetalMatte The packaging of this palette is awesomely unique. Kat Von D designs all of her own art work, so they really are one of a kind. I love the ‘Metal’ and ‘Matte’ ambigram (I may have used google to find out that word…) she has come up with. The palette itself is pretty large, it’s and unusual long and narrow shape. In comparison to Kat Von D’s Shade and Light Eye palette, you can see how long and narrow it is. Kat Von D MetalMatte


Inside this giant palette you are getting 22 shadows, 13 matte and 9 foiled (or metal crush!). You have everything you need for an every day neutral or a dramatic smokey eye. Then you also have a selection of brighter shades to add a pop of colour to any look. This palette is selling at Sephora.co.nz for $48, in comparison the Shade & Light palette which sells for $64. Kat Von D MetalMatte If like me, you are in love with this palette, but you sometimes need some inspiration to get you using the colours, don’t worry. KVD have included a little face chart with three different looks; one matte, one metal and one mixed. Kat Von D MetalMatte

MetalMatte Shades

The colour selection was the main selling point of this palette for me, that took the purchase from want to need. The Mattes are very pigmented, and with a single finger swipe, give great colour pay off. Kat Von D MetalMatte Arranged beautifully from cool through to warm, the metal shades are extremely opaque. Again this is with a single finger swatch, with a wet brush you could achieve much more. Kat Von D MetalMatte
