I am not 100 percent sure of Kat Vin D’ s Shade + Light Blush will be coming back to Sephora or on the KVD website, but in case they do glamour babes, I suggest you hold on to your $25 and save it for a rainy day or possibly a better makeup haul. These two tone blushes leave something to be desired.
I was lucky enough to find four (Hansel & Gretel, Mickey & Mallory, Sid & Nancy, and Bonnie & Clyde) of the seven Shade + Light blushes at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s for $6.99 each, and was excited to try them after my positive experience with KVD’s Everlasting Liqiuid Lipstick.
Hansel (dark) is terracotta & Gretel (light) is apricot.Bonnie (dark) is raspberry pink & Clyde (light) is lilac.Mickey (dark) is a baked peach & Mallory (light) is a porcelain pink.
Sid (dark) is a bright tulip & Nancy (light) is a ballet pink.
The not so innovative two in one matte finish blushes apply very sheer, blotchy, uneven, and did not wear long (4 hours). The build ability turned out to be weak as well. Did you see the semi-sheer mediocre flush of color in my photos? Yea, that’s four applications worth on my cheeks. At least it didn’t turn out cakey, now there’s a perk! Lol. The finely milled powder produced a ton of kickback, making my sink rather colorful, and my swatches applied quite chalky, and streaky. I had to trace over the swatches repeatedly for the color depth to appear somewhat vibrantly on my wrist, it was a little tedious. My blush pans did manage to stay in the compacts though.
I have read other reviews that they do fall out after awhile due to the cheap adhesive applied to the backs of each one. Not cool, if you actually paid $25. A compact shouldn’t be made so poorly when charging so much for the finished product, just sayin is all.
At least I got four for the price of one when you think about it, I can’t be too disappointed. Have you tried Kat Von D’s Shade + Light Blush? What do you think of them? Money well spent or nah?
Stay beautiful! Xo
