When I saw this palette I thought to myself ‘I have to have it!’ When I finally got my hands on it I have to admit I wasn’t that impressed. The outer box was a glitter fest. The glitter transferred to the outer packaging of the palette. It was a little messy. I tossed the outer box and wiped down the palette and got to swatching. I wasn’t impressed with the swatches either. The top row swatched beautifully! The bottom row was just ok. I was ready to write this one off as a dud. That is until I sat down to create a look.

The Kylie Cosmetics Valentine Palette contains 12 eyeshadows. The top row contains some very pigmented metallics with the mattes on the bottom. Those mattes really needed to be built up. And as you can tell they just didn’t swatch well. Well, some of them anyway. I was really worried. While creating my look I found that the shadows applied and blended so much nicer on the lid. Some shades still needed to be built up, but they built up nicely. You can see a look I created with the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine Palette below.

I loved the Take Me On Vacation Palette so much. It’s a palette I still reach for today. I was hoping the Valentine Palette would join Take Me On Vacation in my most reached for drawer. And it has. None of the shades are unique. Kandy Heart and First Date do stand out and are very pretty shades. But most of us probably have each and every one of these shades in other palettes. So if you didn’t get your hands on this one it’s really no biggie. But it is a super cute palette and I ended up loving it.

Did you purchase anything from the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine Collection?

I feel like I haven’t talked about anything Kat Von D in years. Which is odd considering the fact that I use quite a few of her products daily. I guess I just haven’t been impressed by the newer releases? I’m not really sure what happened.

The Kat Von D Kitten Mini Crush on Blush highlighter and blush duo caught my eye though. It totally reminded me of why I love Kat Von D products. This is what I’ve been missing. This super cute duo contains a mini Everlasting Blush in the shade Nova and a mini Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter in the shade Gammaray.

Nova is the most beautiful dusty rose shade with a matte finish. Kat Von D does these shades really well. I can’t resist them even though I have many similar shades in my collection already. It’s soft and very pigmented. I suggest using a light hand when applying and build up as needed. It applied and blended beautifully.

Gammaray is a pretty metallic peach with gold glimmer. I get some rose gold vibes from this shade. The glitter is a little chunky, but not overly so. There was a bit of fallout, but I didn’t find it to be bothersome.

Overall, I love this little duo! It’s perfect for every day wear and makes for a nice natural look. The highlighter might be a bit too shimmery for some, but I personally loved it. And I’m not big on shimmer or glitters. I really hope the brand does more of these types of products because I sure do miss them.

Have you tried anything new from Kat Von D recently?

When the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine Palette came back in stock I took advantage and ordered the Valentine Matte Lip Kit too. I’m always hesitant about purchasing the Lip Kits because they’re so pricey. I wish some of these kits were sold individually. I don’t always have use for the Lip Liners. But it was on sale and I really couldn’t resist.

I’ve tried a few lip products from Kylie Cosmetics and really liked them. I don’t think the shades are really unique or anything, but this bright pink really stood out to me. And the packaging is super cute! I don’t usually use Lip Liners, but for this review I used both products in the Matte Lip Kit. The Lip Liner glided on nicely. It’s very pigmented and could probably be worn on its own. The Matte Liquid Lipstick applied nicely too. It’s a little watery and dries down pretty quickly. It felt lightweight and made for a comfortable wear. It lasted well over 8 hours. Toward the end of the day it started to feel a little dry, but it wasn’t too bothersome. It did leave behind a bit of a stain after removal. I did detect a scent, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. It sort of reminds me of a cherry cough drop. My allergies are throwing things out of whack for me these days. So that’s the best I can do.

You can see the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine Matte Lip Kit in action below. I didn’t pair it with the Valentine Palette because I wanted to do a pink look first. I didn’t want to go overboard with the pink.

Overall, I have to say that I love the Valentine Matte Lip Kit. I still don’t have much use for the Lip Liner, but I really wanted that lipstick. It’s gorgeous and absolutely perfect for Summer!
