Swatches | Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca 2015 Holiday Palette + Video

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca 2015 Holiday Palette

With the holidays approaching, there's quite a few brands that are releasing stunning palettes, problem is.... they are all limited edition.  So you.. just like me... will be tempted to purchase them all or select the ones that are within your budget.  I have always wanted to try KVD's eyeshadows.  They are not cheap at $20 a pop, I have never been able to try them.  However, when I saw this palette, I just knew that I had to have it.

The KVD Mia Vida Loca Palette is named from one of her favorite tattoos translated to "My Crazy Life" in Spanish.  This palette is a collection of all the fan favorites from previous eyeshadow palettes rolled out into one.  This palette cost $59 dollars and is exclusive to Sephora and each eyeshadow contains 0.04 ounces of product. While the colors on the outside of the wheel swatched very creamy and evenly (at least most of them) the inner colors appeared to be very chalky with some fallout.

This KVD Mia Vida Loca Palette, for the most part, gave me what I expected, but missed the mark on the some of the neutral colors which I felt weren't well thought out..

This KVD Mia Vida Loca Palette contains mostly mattes.  I prefer shimmers because they show up better on me and I can blend them much easier.  Now, as you can see with the swatches below, all the lighter colors appear almost the same color on my arm.  The lighter pinks look almost the same as well as the lighter nudes... all look the same.  I realize that when these brands are putting these colors together, they aren't thinking about women with brown skin, if they were, they would have more of a variety of browns instead of  5 "FIVE" ivories and creams that all appear the same color.
