New Makeup Monday: Kat von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow

A quick note on posting: lately I’ve been really slack on blog posts and I realised that one of the main reasons for that is that I always make such LONG posts. So that has to stop, I’m going to try to post short posts more regularly – I hope that’s okay! The long posts are exhausting and time consuming and anything that makes me AVOID posting on my blog can get straight in the bin.

Onto the subject at hand! You guys know I love Kat von D products. I really do. I love the products themselves (well, most of them), I love the packaging, I love the marketing and just give me everything forever. I also love bold metallic/shimmery eyeshadows so natch I was SUPER excited when I saw that the brand was releasing some!

I went to Sephora at JCPenney and swatched them and omg I was in LOVE. I forced myself to choose ONE. I chose Synergy, a bronze/copper (closer to bronze really) because it spoke to me and because I’ve been wearing a lot of those shades recently.

I wore it to work the next day and although it creased a LITTLE bit, it’s worth noting that everything does on me. Next time I wear it, I’m going to wear a little of the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze underneath, because that stuff is amazing and they’re basically the same color.

The shadow was SO pigmented and smooth and easy to blend, I knew I had to have another. So when I went to Sephora Albany I picked up Raw Power, a burnt red/burgundy.

I am sorry to say that I only have really too-bright sunshiney pictures of these on, that don’t do them justice! I’ll post them anyway but I promise to take more decent pictures and post them on Instagram (@freedomandvanity) this week for you guys.

Next I’m going to pick up Thrasher, a gorgeous antique gold and Black No.1 which is a metallic dark grey/black.

If you think these sound cool, you can pick them up at Sephora for $21 and in Australia at Sephora too I would think.

Thanks for reading! As always, throw me some ideas for new posts if you like!

Love++
