Today’s a rainy day here but I’m sure this post will warm you up a little bit just before Winter hits. I’m going to do a review on this single eyeshadow by Kat Von D. It’s the Shade Shifter Eyeshadow in the shade Love Letter.
This is supposed to be a powder eyeshadow that shifts–as in a duochrome finish and that is water activated. Available in four shades at Sephora. I believe the other shade is On the Road which is of Brown/Green shift for $16.00 a pop but I don’t remember the rest. Oops!!!
Love Letter is described as a pretty purple/ maroon shift. It looks like a warm toned plum to me. And it has a frosty finish. What makes this shadow neat is that if you add just a dab of water to your spade or brush before dipping it into the color, you get this gorgeous two-tone color that shifts depending on what light you’re in.
I noticed that this duochrome powder eyeshadow shift a little weak. It really just looks like one color most of the time. Nevertheless, I find the color payoff for this is huge, so it’s likely that one of these will last you a long while.
Let me tell you that the texture is soft and buttery to the touch, which made it easy to use on the lid. The duochrome is subtle for me but the quality of the eyeshadow (as far as eyeshadow goes) is fine for me. I’m in love!
Another pros: is that this shift shadows can last for eight hours wear before showing some fading. I’ve been wearing it over the last week and today without any primer, I’m satisfied with the results I get from this shadow.
This is really a pretty color and the duochrome I think will eliminate the need for another color to pair with! You can practically wear this shift alone.
You know what, I picked up this Love Letter and I absolutely loved it. The swatched Love Letter didn’t look like it would be much, but it looks gorgeous built up on the eye. It’s pigmented as you can see on the color swatch.
I believe it could be my second time that I tried KvD products. I’m in love!
I’m using dry application for this look without primer but it can be built-up to the color intensity you desire. The good thing about shift shadow is, it could be applied wet.
Why purple? But you know the purple /maroon colour is really calling out my name… so I caved in 😉 This shade is definitely give a very fall vibe! It’s a race against time to wear it before winter seeps in.
I definitely will repurchase for other shades in my collection.
