During my most recent trip to Sephora, I decided to purchase the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Sage. Although some of the other shade selections were more aesthetically pleasing to me, I wanted to go out of my comfort zone and pick the Sage quad, which has shadow colors that supposedly compliment brown eyes.
I want to start this review out by stating how beautiful these eyeshadows are. Whenever I first swatched these shades, I was in disbelief at how smooth they felt. The texture is really silky and buttery, which is rare in a matte eyeshadow! These shadows are incredibly pigmented as well. You can see in the swatches above that these shadows do not look chalky or patchy on my skin. The colors are unique and beautiful, I have nothing like the dark green shade in the palette and really loved the way it is borderline black. This makes it super wearable and adds a unique effect whenever applied into the outer corner or as eyeliner.
I think this palette is versatile enough to be used on a daily basis for a natural look. The base shade is a warm tan color that is perfect for all over the lid. It gives definition, without darkening your eyes in an unnatural way. As you know, I love the definer shade, which is a hunter green color. It really is so unlike anything else I own and I think it does bring out my brown eye color. The contour crease shade is a gray toned, olive green. It looks beautiful to blend out any harsh lines above the lid. I also think this color would look really beautiful as a base shade. Lastly, the highlight is a cream shade that ties the entire look together when applied underneath the brow and on the inner corner of your eye. Although the look I created in the photo is more daytime appropriate, I can see this palette being amazing for smokey eyes by using the dark green definer shade all over the lid. I really love that you can create an entire eye look by using the colors solely in this palette. It’s nice for travel because it’s compact in size and gives you multiple options for natural or glam looks!
I am really excited to continue using this product and try out the other Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in “Rust,” “Smoke” and “Plum.” Have you ever tried any of these before? Let me know which ones are your favorite! Thanks for reading!
