Exciting news! I was chosen by Influenster to test out and review the new line from Kat Von D. When I got the e-mail saying that I was a good match, I was so excited because this would be my first high-end makeup box I received from them. I was asked to just choose what shade would work best for me and wait patiently for my box to arrive.
*If you don’t want to read all the details I included in this post, than you can skim down to the bottom where I linked my unboxing video, and give a demo so you can see the products in ACTION as well.
The day finally arrived, and I opened the box only to be in shock. I assumed I was getting more like a deluxe sample size of the color that I chose, but I actually received not one, but two of the full size concealers, a full size translucent powder, and two of her brushes. One for applying concealer and the other to set your makeup.
Let’s talk packaging. This packaging is absolutely stunning. I love the matte black boxes with some glossy detailing. The products alone are display worthy. The brushes look like they belong on the vanity of a rockstar. The translucent powder isn’t just detailed on the outside, but the inside sifter is shaped like a star as well. The concealers also have a very sleek yet unique look to them.
There are a total of 21 shades in these concealers. The variety is large, so it is easy to get a good match whether you want to conceal or highlight certain areas. For $26 you receive 0.22 oz. I received the shades “L5 Light Neutral” and” L7 Light with warm undertones”. I prefer L7 because my skin looks better with warm undertones. This concealer has one of the BEST coverages I have seen in a while, and never caked up after I set it. I was pleased with how easy they are to blend. Be sure to start out with a small amount and build as needed, because starting out with too much can become a mess. (Trust me, it happened to me already lol). I loved using the Lock It Edge concealer brush. It has a unique sculpted shape making it easy to blend out under eye concealer, easily getting around edges and small areas, and it covers imperfections instantly. This concealer brush retails for $24.
The translucent Lock It setting powder feels like silk. It makes any area you set look like it’s been air brushed. It is made with micro-blurring technology which is a nice plus. I never experienced any dryness in my under eye area, and it never showed up on camera, or showed any added color to my skin. For $30 you receive 0.67 oz. Believe me it’s going to last you quite a while. When used with the Lock It setting brush you can’t go wrong. The brush is super soft and feels like heaven on the skin. This makeup brush retails for $38.
In this video I will give you a demo of how I apply one side with the brushes included, and one side with a beauty blender. Don’t forget to subscribe!
