Kat von D Rock n Roll Palette (aka the Sephora 500 Point Palette) Review & Swatches

October 13, 2009


I was all gaga over this Kat von D Rock n Roll Eyeshadow Palette Sephora was offering as one of its 500 point gifts, and of course I had to get it even though I’d been hoarding my points for who knows how long.


So I’ll bet you’re all wondering, was it worth the splurge? Is it really worth 500 of your precious points that you’ve so painstakingly accumulated?


Wondering if the Kat von D Rock n Roll Palette actually rocked my world? Find out (and check out the close-ups and swatches) after the jump!



I bet you look at this palette and think fabulous hip packaging, some great wearable shades that aren’t too crazy but not too boring either, plus a cute mini brush ~ what could be better, right? Well honestly, pretty much anything. I gave this palette chance after chance to at least make me fall in like with it, but it just wasn’t to be.


The swatches above are of Believer, Confessional, Groupie and Motorhead, and all four shades were seriously unpigmented. I had to swipe at the shadow 3-4 times to get the amount of color I did above! Thanks to the lack of pigmentation, I found that these shadows lent my overall eye looks a muddy, dull appearance and really weren’t very flattering at all.


Now I’m not judging the rest of Kat von D’s products based upon this palette as I’ve heard that her regular palettes really are quite special, but I’m a little saddened that my introduction into the world of Kat von D was so lackluster.


The Verdict: Save your points for something better! I do really LOVE the packaging but the contents are less than stellar and really not worth spending those 500 points on.
