Kat Von D Art Of Elysium - Kimberly Palette

Today I will be reviewing Kat Von D's Art Of Elysium Palette in Kimberly. This palette is the same size as the small palette that you could have received as a 500 points perk at Sephora. The palette is white rubberized plastic like most of the other palettes. It has a drawing of eyes on the front in black.

What is so nice about this palette, and probably one of the best  reasons to buy (because some of the colors are not new) is because of this:

Kat Von D designed this gorgeous palette in collaboration with the Art of Elysium, a charity that provides creative inspiration to children battling serious medical conditions. For the pallette's cover, Kat and a teenage girl from named Kimberly took turns drawing the other's portrait. On the left you'll find Evelyn's portrayal of Kat's eye and on the right you'll find Kat's portrayal of Evelyn's eye. 

Ten percent of the purchase of this palette will benefit The Art of Elysium programs.

The colors in the palette are:

Believer- Pearlized pink
Shakespeare- Pearlized taupe
Rad- Matte purple black with purple glitter
Dorian Gray- Pearlized charcoal gray (also found in Sinner Palette)

Believer is sugary cotton candy pink. Shakespeare is a pearly cranberry shade. Rad is a matte dark blueish purple with glitter. Dorian Gray is a dark pearly gunmetal gray.

All were swatched over bare skin -no primer or base.

My favorite colors in the palette are: Shakespeare and Rad.

These colors all swatched beautifully and I would recommend this palette to anyone who is looking for a small palette to make a nice purple smoky eye.

You can pick this palette up for $20 at Sephora.
