Happy Saturday! Today I’m sharing the Kat Von D Pastel Goth Palette. I’ve got a review and video, live swatches on my pale skin, a look on my hooded eyes, story time and drama to share with you. I recently purchased this palette from the Kat Von D Beauty website, however I do not recommend doing that. You’re better off buying directly from Sephora. The Kat Von D Pastel Goth Palette is vegan. Sephora’s site says that this palette is limited edition.

What I don’t like about the Pastel Goth Palette is that it has Skull, which is a dupe for Linen from the MetalMatte. Since you may already have to reach for the Shade+Light or MetalMatte for a matte black, it made me sad to see a matte white in here too, even though it does work well with the colors.
There is so much to love about the Pastel Goth Palette though. I love the packaging. The design is gorgeous. The eyeshadows have a great formula that I love to work with. The colors themselves are perfect for lid or transitional colors on my skintone. It’s very easy for me to create monochromatic looks by applying one of these colors in the smoky dome shape and then popping on an Alchemist shade on my lid. Or I can keep it matte and apply a soft wash of grey on top to deepen the tone. You can also lighten the shades by using white mixed with any of the colors. This is a completely hooded eye friendly palette, since it’s all matte.
Overall, I definitely recommend the Pastel Goth Palette. While I like the Alchemist, I do think it’s pretty easy to dupe it, as I mentioned in the video. To dupe the Alchemist palette with Fyrinnae, try Winter, Again for Saphyre, Jade Ghost for Emerald, Sakura for Amethyst and Crimson Ghost for Opal.
