Kat Von D Eyeshadow Palette in Memento Mori Review

Another addition to my eyeshadow addiction.  Sephora had Kat Von D's palettes for half off so I picked up three of them.  Memento Mori is the one I have used the most so far because all of the colors are beautiful and pigmented and not overly shimmery.  It is a very bright palette and probably not for those who only like subtle looks.  What I love the most is that the darkest shade called Tijuana can be used over any shadow without looking gray or muddy to make it darker and vivid.  What I like the least is the cream named True which i haven't really found a use for.  I tried it as a liner but it just didn't work.  Spread over my eye it is too oily and shadow on top of it is unnecessary.  I'll update this review if I find a use for it.  But that doesn't affect the quality of the rest of the palette which is worth the money.
From left to right: True, Solitude, Meditation, Agatha Pink, Sugar Skull, Peggy, Hard Luck, Tijuana

Below I'm wearing Solitude as my lid color with Tijuana blended over it.  I used Agatha Pink as the highlight which has this amazing ability to make purple look so mesmerizing on my eyes.

@ArcanusGrace: You're welcome. Yeah the face is always kinda sensitive. My friend had more breakouts by her sideburn/jaw area. It's probably not worth it. Let me know if you try Vaniqa. If you wanna contact me directly you can here:

@walkthesand, twins: It's surprisingly great quality and worth the price. But try to get it on sale.
