The first noticeable thing? The palette is half dark, smoky shades (signature Kat Von D-style) and the other half is light, luminous shades, very uncharacteristic of her typical look. But the combination is genius. You need the light-catching shades to highlight the brow bones and inner corners of the eyes. And I love that the traditional black smoky eye is being replaced with smoky purples and intense greens. This year is all about coloured smoky eyes. The same sultry look, with a dash of colour to bring out your eyes and enhance your gaze.
Plus, the Kat Von D Tattoo Chronicles Candelabra Palette ($59), comes complete with a full-size Sin-Ful Lash Mascara for blacker than black lashes. To top it all off, everything comes in a velvet box and yes, that makes it cooler. If you want to snag this item, you better hurry because this baby is a limited edition! You like the shades? What’s your definition of the perfect smoky eye?
