Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hello Guys!  I am really excited about this review. Lately, Kat Von D has been creating some wonderful palettes and the quality of her eyeshadows just get better and better. When I heard she was coming with a colorful palette this year I knew this was a must have without a doubt. When it comes to colorful eyeshadows this is one of the few eyeshadows palettes that is out in the beauty world that showcases such vibrant eyeshadows whereas other brands are still stuck on the neutral colored eyeshadows. Do not get me wrong I love neutral eyeshadows too, but it is always exciting to venture out into colorful eyeshadows to brighten things up. So without further a due here is the review for the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette.

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette retails for $59.00 and contains colorful as well as natural eyeshadows ranging from shimmer to matte finishes. 

The outside illustration was drawn by Kat Von D herself.

All the colors of the rainbow! Simply beautiful and what is cool about this palette  just like a color wheel you can customize your own shades to create new ones. You can create endless makeup looks. 

The Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette slides out of the packaging like a record. Not the most practical way in storing an eyeshadow palette because if you are not careful it could fall out. Kat Von D created the packaging in a artistic way. I dig it.

The packaging included this makeup look sheet to help you get started.


I swatched the colors clockwise and they were swatched over a regular base. If you swatched it over a white base the colors will be more vibrant. Such gorgeous colors and excellent pigmentation. I do not know how Kat Von D creates smooth and buttery matte eyeshadows without them being powdery  The only color that I did have to pack on was the yellow eyeshadow and I had to apply the color over a white base. However, it was not powdery which yellow eyeshadows are known for. 


     If you are a makeup junkie and one who loves colorful eyeshadows this is the one to grab fast before it sells out. This is a limited edition eyeshadow palette. Once it sells out it is gone for good. If you do not own many eyeshadows or do not own many palettes with colorful eyeshadows, this is the one to get. Kat Von D has done it again with the quality of the eyeshadows. They are super pigmented and velvety soft. The matte eyeshadows have excellent pigmentation as well and are not powdery. The eyeshadows blend like a dream and last all day still maintaining its vibrancy and pigmentation. I wore the eyeshadows for about 7 hours and it was still vibrant and did not crease at all. If you really want the colors to pop apply a white base first.

     Some say the palette is pricey. I have to disagree. You have 24  super pigmented shades to work with. This is a color wheel which means you can create colors by mixing them together. So if you think about it you are getting more than 24 shadows plus more with customizable shades. I think $59 dollars is a reasonable price and this palette is versatile.  There are some eyeshadow palettes that cost an arm and a leg and the quality is poor because often times you are paying for the brand  name instead of the quality which isn't the case with the Kat Von D Livin Mi Vida Loca  Remix Palette. In this palette you have your colorful and neutral shadows, so if you want to create a neutral look you have the middle wheel to create an every day or smokey look for night time. Also if u want a neutral look with a pop of color that can be done too. The possibilities of makeup looks are endless with this palette.

     My only complaint is the packaging. I love the art that she created herself for the cover. However, the storage of the palette is not practical because there is no closure on the side and can fall right out. It is also very big so this wouldn't be travel friendly. I do get her artistic point of view.

So did I love the Kat Von D Living Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette? Yes! I am over the moon with this palette and happy I grabbed it. I highly highly recommend this if you are looking for a colorful palette with high quality pigmentation. I urge you to get it before it is gone. This is one of my top palettes for 2015.

Hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. 

You can purchase this palette only at Sephora. Grab it before it sells out. This is limited edition.

Fun Fall Makeup Tutorial Ft. Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Eyeshadow Palette

Hey everyone! It has been awhile doing a pictorial. I thought since Fall is my favorite season, I thought I would create a look or two. The palette I used for the look is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette. I wanted to do a fun fall colorful look because I love color and what better time to show case some of Fall's vibrant colors. Hope you enjoy this look! :)

The picture is pretty self explanatory. I do want to add that I always use primer to prime my eyes before applying eyeshadow. For the lid I used a white primer to make the orange and yellow eyeshadow color pop more. Before I applied the green eyeshadow below the lash line, I used NYX eyeliner pencil in tropical green to make the green eyeshadow become more vibrant.

 Finished Look

Products Used

*Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette
*Urban Decay Eyeliner
*Loreal Butterfly Mascara
*Nyx Liquid Eyeliner in Black
*Not in picture is the Nyx Eyeliner in Tropical Green

Hope you enjoyed this look and I hope to do at least one or two more fall makeup pictorials so stay tuned!

Have a wonderful day loves!

Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick In Lolita Review


     Hey Everyone! Today I will be reviewing the Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. This lip color is all the rave these days. It certainly is pretty and compliments all skin tones. This is my first high end liquid lipstick so when I heard all the good reviews and how wonderful the color was I caved in to see what all the hype was about. Was it worth all the buzz? Scroll down to find out my thoughts. :)


The Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick retails for $20.00 and the color I got was Lolita which is described as a Chestnut rose color. It is a long lasting liquid lipstick that contains vitamin E and sunflower oil so that the lipstick stays feeling nice on your lips. 


     This is my first high end liquid lipstick so I can't compare it to other high end brands. However, I have tried a few drug store liquid lipsticks like the Rimmel London Provocolips and Wet n wild liquid lipstick. Compared to the mentioned drug store liquid lipsticks that I have tried, the Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick formula is excellent! It definitely is long lasting and lasted on my lips almost the entire day. It is kiss proof and even when I ate there was still a lot of product left on my lips . For some people, the price might be expensive, but u get what you pay for. Since this is long lasting I never had to reapply during the day. When u think about it,  this will last you a long time. The Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid lipstick is very light weight on the lips which I love! Sometimes I would forget I have it on my lips that is how comfortable is feels. As for the lip color, the Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita is beautiful and compliments all skin tones.Would I purchase more? Yes yes and yes! There are a few colors that I have my eyes one , but they are sold out at the moment :( Kat Von D is coming out with a Lolita 2 liquid lipstick so be sure to check out Sephora.

You can purchase the Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick at Sephora. It is currently sold out yet again, so sign up to the mailing list to get notified when it is back in stock. When it does go back in stock hurry and grab it because it sells out fast.

Hope you enjoyed my review and see you lovelies in my next blog post!

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hey everyone! It has been awhile!! Hope everyone is doing well. Today I will be reviewing the Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette.  This is a sequel to the original Too faced Chocolate Bar Palette which you can find my can find my review   here .  The difference between this palette and the first one is this one has a few more warmer tones a pop of color. I love both palettes and I can't really choose between the two . :) If you love neutral palettes this one is a nice addition to add to your makeup collection and the eyeshadows smell like chocolate!

The Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette retails for $49.00 and contains 16 eyeshadows ranging from matte to shimmer shades.

Back of the packaging

Comes with a guide to help you create looks.

The mirror stand without flopping, however I feel the lettering is taking up the space of the mirror. It could be bigger.

As you can see the palette has a mix of cool and warm tones.

In this palette the names are printed instead of having a plastic insert like the original.
 Swatch time!


Overall, the Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar does not disappoint with the pigmentation of the eyeshadows. What I love about this palette as well is that they included a few transition shades to work with. They are always important to have especially in a makeup palette. The eyeshadows lasted about 7 hours on my eyes and the pigmentation was still strong. My only complaint is I hate when they include a light pink eyeshadow shade. Those shades usually have less pigmentation and the staying power is poor. For the most part their eyeshadows are pigmented and smooth in texture. The packaging is sturdy, made of tin and is thinner than the original chocolate bar palette which makes this palette travel friendly. As I mentioned earlier, if you are a neutral palette lover this one will be a nice addition to your collection.

You can purchase this palette at Sephora and Ulta.

Hope you enjoyed this review and see you in my next blog post.
