Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette Look

When I saw this babe pop up on the Sephora facebook page last week I instantly knew that I had to have it as soon as possible! (When I went to my Sephora it wasn't even on the floor yet, I had to make the girl dig through boxes in the back to get it for me!) Of course this also meant that I had to use every single color in it at the next available opportunity! Then in came the perfect opportunity, my friend Anthony's 80's/Disco birthday party! I don't think that 2 things could have gone together better. I ended up using every color except for the green & loved how it came out so much I decided to recreate it in a tutorial. This is very similar to the tutorials I did for the Urban Decay palettes but, I did leave out one of the colors & ended up using a few other items. I was more concentrated on making the best of my palette rather then trying to exclusively use just this for the whole look.

Look How Pretty!

One thing that I did notice with this palette is that it isn't quite as buttery & pigmented as her other palettes that I have. However, this is the first one that I have bought since the re-design so I don't really know if that's how all of them are now. It is still an excellent palette & a great value for those of us that love all the crazy, extreme, bright colors & want more then just mattes.
This was the first time I have tried the Kat Von D eyeliner & I feel that it is very similar to the Urban Decay liners. It smudges & blends well but isn't really suited for the waterline. I just had a lot of trouble getting it to go on & it was gone in a matter of minutes. I still like it for smudging on the top lash line or under the bottom lashes though.
