KAT VON D MAKEUP HAUL SEPHORA SINGAPORE
I kept on pushing down Kat Von D makeup shopping on my list these past few months because before it was not available in Singapore and I was slothful scouring for websites that sell her makeup line; I mean there are a few online shops out there but I was skeptical and I certainly don't wanna be scammed. With a plethora of online shopping websites to sift through, I found out that the most convenient & trusted site to purchase Kat Von D makeup is through sephora singapore.
I think what makes Kat Von D makeup line unique is that every product that she released in the market is designed for every makeup neophyte and pros alike. As a tattoo artist herself, Kat Von D's artistic talent is eminent through the rich colors and textures she incorporated into her products.
I was eyeing KVD makeup eons ago and I initially thought that it was just all infused with so much GOTHIC strain, it seemed that they are all like the usual dark shades that elicit instant groans of "too dark, too wild - not for me" among the majority of jaded makeup zealot. But then again when I got the chance to try her products out, KVD does her homework, this girl sure do know her colors, what works and the whatnot.
When Sephora announced this year that Kat Von D will be available online and in-stores, it was an edge-of-the-seat nail biter catastrophe. Women and beauty aficionados flocked to Sephora stores, (yes including yours truly) raiding KVD's alley and the rest was history.
I wasn't able to attend the launch and even the actual day that KVD personally went to Sephora ION Singapore due to work commitment, so I headed down a week after and tagged along a colleague. The sound of our stainless Sephora shopping basket clinking were music to our ears, the swatches and giggles brought about by her infamous Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks anchored more of my excitement. Before the staff even noticed us bogarting the lipstick wands, cotton pads, q-tips and makeup remover, we just had to stop and then carted a couple of boxes. While she opted for the nudes, I was drawn to the reds. I will share more of that haul in a separate post.
Since going to the outlet has been a no picnic zone for me recently, it was a relief to know that Sephora online carries KVD makeup, I can shop at the comfort of my own home from my laptop or mobile phone and can just click away and have the convenience of having the items delivered to my place. Gotta love online shopping, no pressure and KVD products are fully stocked, just like their actual shelves in stores. I liked that with Sephora SG Online I can find product by their brand names and can sort them by relevance, price, ratings, popularity, product zooming and of course, new arrivals! They got user-friendly interface as well that I think even a child can also conduct an an easy-breezy transaction. All these made online shopping way so much easier, right?
For now, let me share a few products which I have shopped online via Sephora Singapore website entailing corresponding reviews and swatches of each.
Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation
Its matte powder finish absorbed oil while allowing skin to look natural.
Light 44 is a flattering shade on me and dries down to a powder finish; in my case, it wasn't full but to a more natural finish. Upon first pump, I was surprised to see that it's lightweight, creamy and is easily blendable when applied, reminiscent of my Burberry Luminous Foundation which I've reviewed some time back. This one is fragrance-free though, so those with sensitivity issues can give this a go.
Housed in a pump-type packaging, it's easy to control, dispense a bit and a little goes a long way. It dries down quickly so you need to be swift in applying. It was able to hold back shine throughout the rest of the workday and doesn't creep into fine lines or floats over my dry patches.
Regardless of your preference for foundation application tools (sponge, brush or even bare hands), you'll likely find this is easy to work with.

PARDON THE VEINY HANDS! THE TEXTURE AIN'T RUNNY AND PRODUCT DESCRIPTION IS ON-POINT [LIGHT COMPLEXION WITH A BEIGE UNDERTONE]
Kat Von D Ink Liner - Trooper
For that crisp, winged liner depositing a vivid color - beckoning a certain angst and poise.
Best asset: The tip is not soft! Its long, flexible tip that glides along without tugging at skin and not only allows easy application but an intense jet black color. Did not fade or smudge on me, holds up really well during the day. Sets quickly as well so smearing or transferring has a slim chance of occurring. This liner comes in a thin plastic tube with a cap. Pop off the cap and you'll see a very thin felt tip "marker" that dispenses the liquid liner. Even if you are not a pro in lining your eyes, you can still achieve a precise application with this.
Shade: T R O O P E R
Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad - [RUST]Capriciousness doesn't stand a chance with this quad, you might find it hard to ad-lib with how beautiful its performance is.
Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in RUST is a striking, compact quad that marshals a synchronized makeup look. A rusty and warm yet cohesive neutral palette, each shade is a pleasure to blend, applies smoothly and colors make a great impact. I had a swell time swatching this.
Rusty/reddish brown shadows is on trend now so if you don't wanna spend a lot of moolah with large palettes, this would be apt for your budget. Displaying a sleek, matte black design with that signature Kat Von D font. The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Rust comes in a compact, plastic palette with a distinct snap closure. Open it up and gush with that decent sized mirror and 4 beautiful shadows. Indeed travel-friendly as its sturdy and sleek, a 360 degree swerve from your typical cardboard palettes.
don't you just love it whenever an eyeshadow palettes comes with a decent-sized mirror?
The 4 Shades include a Base, Contour, Defining and Highlighting. Although this is known for making blue eyes pop, I find that it does the same for those with brown eyes. They are all complementary shades and although you do not have to follow the guidelines on the leaflet, your creativity will always have the largest room. Overall, this is a good quad, all swatch on with that velvety, buttery feel . While a taupe shade tops my list for eyeshadows, brownish reds comes next and this one fits the bill.
Shade: R U S T
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick - [PRAYER]
A spiky and sentimental shade, succumb to that greater appetite for partying with an intimate prayer on your pout.
Described as matte deep merlot and cult favorite, this shade had me at hello. From what I got, Prayer is a dark brick, burgundy red color, saturated and applies smoothly. This red lipstick deserves a spot in your stash. I got the matte finish look with a certain comfort and without the drying feel. Even safe to kiss someone with it.
Best asset: It has the ability to stay on my lips after blotting and bagels.
After 8 hours, it faded to a beautiful stain and zilch patchy lips. Grab your white tee shirt, boyfriend jeans, stilletto and rock this color with that respectful warmth of sophistication. Thank me later.
Shade: P R A Y E R
Kat Von D makeup is akin to owning a corset - before, I see it as tight, no chance to bend nor run very far in it but when actually worn, I was breathless but was able to adjust and appreciate the depths of each texture and colors alike.
So there you go, that sums up this Kat Von D Sephora Singapore Haul. Hope it helped you guys in deciding which products to get, I highly recommend her Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation, it's so fancy to own this wonderful bottle! If you got an extra moolah to spare, get the quad! It's versatile, travel-friendly and with a great pigmentation to boot.
