I had high hopes for the Saint palette by Kat Von D, as it is my first experience with her products. Sadly, it fell short for me in a lot of different areas, some I didn’t even expect. To start, I feel like there are some great colors in this palette, BUT they are highly dupeable with so many eyeshadows from other brands. Secondly, I couldn’t believe how powdery these eyeshadows were – comparable to some of the finishes you’d find in The Balm’s ‘Nude Tude. If you just lay your brush on the eyeshadow, it practically explodes onto the brush. Like it can’t wait to hop on your eye! However, once it’s there, it can’t wait to jump off. This is true of the lighter shades in the palette, the darker shades didn’t act like that, nor did the matte pink.
Finally, during eyeshadow application it’s normal to get some of it in your eyes sometimes, right? Well, holy moly! With this palette I wanted to get it anywhere else except in my eyes. If a tiny amount dropped into my eyes, it burned like I had gotten rubbing alcohol in my eye. Sadly, that was the case with EVERY eyeshadow in this palette. At first I thought it was this shade, that shade but it ended up being all of them. No ill effects afterwards, but I’ve never had eyeshadows sting my eyes before!
To sum it up, skip it if you’re considering it. There are MUCH better palettes out there you can get for what you’d spend on this one! However, if you managed to get this one and like it, here are some of the ways you can wear it … 😉
