Oooh I was so giddy when I saw that three new Kat Von D palettes were released. I got all 3! I’m starting off with Poetica.
For any of you who owned the previous Kat Von D palettes, you know they were plastic with a screen printed design on them. The cases have been upgraded to an embossed metal.
Here are our colors. I heard some may be dupes in other palettes or repeats, but they are new to me so I’m happy.
The colors from left to right: forgiveness, sand timer, chandler, Tijuana, underworld, shiba, babe, you alone.
This new case is nicely hinged and very well put together. There is a nice large mirror in the top half for application. The old palettes came with tiny applicators but they’ve been replaced:
now they come with a smaller sized autograph pencil (eye liner) in Puro Amor, a soft black liner.

colors top row: forgiveness, sand timer, chandler, Tijuana
bottom row: underworld, shiba, babe, you alone
I really thought in the case that forgiveness and you alone would be really similar but they truly are not. Underworld applies much more iridescent, which is awesome.
same swatches – with flash.
Now onto two looks I did – each using one row of the swatches above.
Look # 1
I used forgiveness on the innermost corner of the eye and under the brow, chandler in the crease of my upper lid and lining my bottom lashes
then I followed up with Tijuana in the outer corner of the eyes, and sand timer to blend them all together a bit.
I lined the upper lid with Puro Amor and used Hard Candy Lashaholic mascara.
Now onto look # 2 using the other half of the palette…
Hello! Holy purple.
For this look I used the same techniques. You alone was on the inner most corner of the eye, babe is on my lids and lining the bottom lashes.
Next I moved on and added shiba in the crease of my lids and underworld on the outer corners. Then I went back and blended it all together with a little more of babe.
Again I lined with Puro Amor liner and used Hard Candy Lashaholic mascara. Both looks I used Smashbox photo finish primer – just FYI.
I’m loving this palette. Both sides can absolutely be used and combined in a ton of ways. You can go kind of Fall themed and basic like the first look or more bold like the second.
Here’s a video I made that includes a third look!
It’s all up to you how you make it work! That’s the beauty of these palettes. lovelovelove.
These are available now through Sephora online or in stores. I have to suggest in store though, because the first one I ever bought online arrived cracked and was a mess…
Luckily they have a great return/exchange policy. Just sayin’!
Have you bought this palette? What are your fave combos? This wasn’t for you? Which KVD palette is YOU?
