What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about Kat Von D beauty? When I think of Kat Von D I think of Edgy and cool, beautiful colors that are rich in pigments.
I’ve been a huge fan of Kat Von D beauty after the brand came out with their liquid lipsticks and Lock-it foundations, have you tried those? They are amazing!
When I heard that the Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Eyeshadow Palette was coming out, I was itching for the day Sephora puts it on their website. let’s see if Saint + Sinner Eyeshadow Palette is as good as it looks
The Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Eyeshadow Palette is a part of the brand’s 2017 holiday release. It’s a sizable eyeshadow palette featuring 24 eyeshadows. The shades are presented beautifully in an equally large gothic cathedral cardboard packaging. If you are a fan of Kat Von D then you know she is the brains behind her brand’s creative packaging.
